Teams for ESEA S25 Premier set

ESEA has revealed the full team list for the Premier divisions in Europe, North America and Australia.

 

In Europe, the biggest talking point is the absence of Virtus.pro. The Polish giants, who lost their place in the ESL Pro League after losing to PENTA in the relegation stage, have declined the chance to compete in the Premier division.

This is likely due to the fact that the current ESEA Premier season, called MDL Training Season, is unconnected to the Pro League following the recent adjustments to the relegation system. Wiktor "⁠TaZ⁠" Wojtas's men will be back in the following Premier edition, which will have a direct move-up to the ESL Pro League Season 7.

Kinguin to compete in Premier, while Virtus.pro rejected the invite

Kinguin, the other team to be relegated from Pro League Season 5, have agreed to take part in ESEA Premier, joining 23 other sides, including big names likes Gambit, FlipSid3 and Space Soldiers.

Below you can find the full team list for the European ESEA Premier division:

Sweden Epsilon Lithuania Playing Ducks
Bulgaria Bpro Poland PRIDE
CIS FlipSid3 Germany ALTERNATE aTTaX
Russia Spirit Germany Planetkey
Sweden Gatekeepers Denmark North Academy
Denmark Tricked Europe PENTA
Sweden fnatic Academy France WySix
Turkey Space Soldiers Ukraine pro100
Turkey ex-DarkPassage Denmark Team123
Slovenia Fury Finland SkitLite
Kazakhstan Gambit Romania Nexus
Poland Kinguin Finland iGame.com

The North American division will also consist of 24 teams, including ex-Pro League duo The Foundation and Rush - now playing as Muffin Lightning -, and Argentine side Miami Flamingos, who secured promotion from the Open division.

The full team list for ESEA Premier North America looks as follows:

United States ex-Synthetik United States FGE

Compared to EU, Premier in North America this season is pretty garbo. The discrepancy is probably the worst it has been.

Outlaws will play in ESEA Main. Imperial (as MK) line-up were in Premier last season, but they didn't show in a single match and got kicked, so now they have to make again from ESEA Open, but they aren't there this season. (I guess there's no invites for this type of leagues)

You see the massive skill difference between eu and na.premier....... Space soldiers would easily rek everybody like 16-5 in NA premier! Also in NA premier im seeing mythic grabbing no1 spot unchallenged and i hope for some teams to merge players and make another solid premier level team with players like emode monte subroza kiko and xp3

no joke eu main would be competitive vs NA pro league. extatus, esuba, k29, outlaws, bd, dignitas, vega, singularity, spartak, rctic, crowns, and gameplaydna could all probably avoid relegation in NA epl if they were to compete.

they can compete other seasons of premier and advance, this season DOES NOT GIVE QUALIFY, so even if they did compete they wouldnt get chance to get back to epl again

This season is one of the worst NA premier skill wise which is kinda a good thing meaning NA pro league has better teams. Rise Nation should steamroll this season.

As long as vp gets an invite to LAN. And they perform on LAN they will keep getting invites. I don't see them motivated at all to play online. I don't remember the last time I watched them play online and actually care enough.
