The ESL Guild Wars 2 Pro League Returns Today

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on January 11, 2016

Four weeks of matches are in the books and just three remain in regular season play. Teams across both regions aspire to be one of the four total teams that will play for $100,000 at the season finals in Leicester, UK on February 20. In North America first place is all but guaranteed to reigning World Champions the Abjured, but the fight for second place is still quite fierce and largely unpredictable, with Spoookie and Team PZ appearing to be fan favorites to take it. Over in the European league things are a little less cut and dry, with Vermillion, Rank Fifty Five Dragons, and the Civilized Gentlemen all having some of their most important matches of the season coming up over the course of the next three weeks.
