Polish Esports League announced

The Polish Esports League has been announced, with five invited teams and three who made it through qualifiers and boasts ~$30,000 in prizes.

The league will be played out online from beginning to end, with all teams facing each other on two maps per game day, for a total of 28 game days. After the league phase, an online playoff with the four best teams will take place.

MICHU's Kinguin will take part in the Polish Esports League

The prize pool will be distributed partly depending on match results, as teams will get around $300 for every win, and half of that if they tie during the league phase. The rest of the money will go to the top four teams in the playoffs.

The first game day will be on May 7 at 21:00, and will run until June 26 before jumping into the playoffs which will be played in early July. To watch the matches, head to the esportnow channel, here.

VP too bad for this league
2017-04-19 14:21
its online only...VP reverse onliners. LAN only so no reason for them to show. Plus they can stream for a couple hours and make as much as this
2017-04-19 14:33
VP LAN form recently looks shakier than a magnitude 10 earthquake
2017-04-19 14:40
I agree last LAN, but while most teams gradually rise and fall, VP can go from first to worst back to first over a year much differently than any other team. I would rather be VP and win sometimes and suck other times, than be some of the other high ranked teams that never win.
2017-04-19 14:46
VP have been that way for a long time not playing well and then become unbeatable and go back in a slump. The scary thing about them is you don't know which team is showing up.
2017-04-19 18:38
France Bouf 
VP didn't make it at the qualifier

nobody cares about tier7 polak teams tbh
2017-04-19 16:39
Kinguin playing in ESL pro league, I dont see space pussies there :)
2017-04-19 16:58
ye kinguin was lucky. funny thing is that they are heading to premier and getting fu**d allday in epl
2017-04-19 17:45
funny is that there isn't any tier1 turkish team. btw correct way to call polish people is "poles" not "polak", enjoy your ban
2017-04-19 17:59
sorry didn't know this is an insult or anything. thought 'polak' is 'polish person' in polish. sorry for bad english. btw there isn't any polish tier1 team aswell lul
2017-04-19 18:05
VP is tier1, on lans only, but yes last time they are playing shit
2017-04-19 18:46
i consider a team t1 only if they are good at lan and online. like currently faze, astralis etc. vp sucks in epl and btw. they sucked on their last lan aswell (even infront of polish crowd in katowice)
2017-04-20 08:15
2017-04-20 09:55
polak means nothing it's polack
2017-04-20 15:10
Please, keep your for yourself and don't insult anyone. reported
2017-04-20 17:41

2017-04-19 22:22

2017-04-19 14:20
hopefully some pasha london school
2017-04-19 14:20
Hows the stability on these teams? Do they fold after a week?
2017-04-19 14:20
i guess this gives them a reason to stay together
2017-04-19 14:22
Every team is really good, they play together for a long time.
2017-04-19 14:23
I really like to hear that!
2017-04-19 14:23
i guess its starting making leagues in every country ? give people motivation,some kind of salaries and they will dedicate.After that cs:go will become serious bussines
2017-04-19 14:31
Martin read post #54 and change name for this team
2017-04-19 14:39
I can give you all info about rosters and full names of these teams if you want to create team and player profiles for them
2017-04-19 14:40
only Grubasy is a mix team
2017-04-19 14:23
inetkox, pride, pompa team, venatores, kinguin have all been around for a while
2017-04-19 14:27
Pompa.Teams are stable for 100%, Pompa.Team is quite big organisation in Poland. Bunch of Ytbers own it. Inetkox, PRIDE and Venatores are also on stage for long time.
2017-04-19 14:32
PompaTeam is an organisation with 2 teams. (won't disband) Kinguin & Pride ofc. won't as well. inetkox is now called Samsung4Gamers by inetkox - won't
2017-04-19 15:19
Martin, could you ensure that they use the correct name of Inetkox as was provided in the press release?
2017-04-19 15:44
Kinguin, Pride, PACT, inetkox & VenatoreS are pretty stable and not so many roster changes
2017-04-19 15:48
Only Grubasy are mixed team,the rest is playing together for some time now
2017-04-19 15:49
2017-04-19 14:21

2017-04-19 14:34
michi, matty , fines, stark
2017-04-19 14:37
2017-04-19 14:39
2017-04-19 14:22
Its gonna be a good show, but I guess Kinguin is gonna win
2017-04-19 14:22
no doubt
2017-04-19 14:31
We'll see, PACT is really good team atm, if they prepare well, I think they can win vs kinguin
2017-04-19 14:33
you could be right, I have not seen them. Pride has upset potential too but I don't see it happening with them. I will have to watch PACT. My $ is on Kinguin but they are so hard to judge...1 day playing close and sometimes beating Tier 1-2 teams. Other days awful.
2017-04-19 14:37
2017-04-19 14:22
Hahahaha tier 10 teams xD
2017-04-19 14:23
Yaay, another tournament for Kinguin to throw
2017-04-19 14:23
I just know Kinguin and Pride, let's go
2017-04-19 14:23
2017-04-19 14:24

2017-04-19 14:24
Out of groups
2017-04-19 14:30

2017-04-19 15:19
2017-04-19 15:26
inetkox is currently Samsung4Gamers by inetkox, why u didn't change their name yet?
2017-04-19 14:35
Nice scene xD
2017-04-19 14:41
typical danish kid, anytime I see danish flag he says smth stupid most often about scenes, pl scene is at 3 place in the world at the moment and trust me danish scene will go back where they belong rly soon
2017-04-19 14:43
the cri is free :)
2017-04-19 14:46
Relax this kid is 13 y old
2017-04-19 14:48
Don't stoop to his level. Polish CS has good teams too. And more competition will only help this. I doubt Danish CS will go away soon but neither will VP and other Polish teams on the rise. Events like this are good for the growth of CS just ignore the haters it's not like you are NA I am NA so cri been free looonnng time
2017-04-19 14:51
Lol normal person on hltv, did I go back in time? You are right I shouldnt respond. thanks
2017-04-19 15:04
haha there are a handful...your reply seemed rational enough so I thought you deserved it. Sometimes I get a good agreement or debate on here but not much because even 25+ YOs think if they h8 or b8 they are cool here. 1day maybe HLTV can be somewhere in between Thorins Thoughts, and h8ing and b8ing but not too close to either wack job extreme
2017-04-19 15:44
He is normal, but that doesn't make his theories on either scene correct.. Regardless of how logical it sounds, it's still wild speculation.
2017-04-19 22:41
2017-04-19 14:41
2017-04-19 14:47
vp couldnt qualify i guess?
2017-04-19 14:48
They were invited, but they won't play for shit money, obviously.
2017-04-19 15:14
They just prefer to play on international level instead only with polish teams. Not enough time to play against all these teams.
2017-04-19 15:17
Pompa team black lol
2017-04-19 14:50
