EMS Season V Announced
th_eu.png Electronic Sports League has announced their fifth season of ESL Major Series. EMS is an international league that is hosted for several games such as Counter-Strike: Source, FIFA, and for the forth time in a row, DotA.

This season, DotA has a prize pool of 1.000€ distributed in the following:
  1. 500€
  2. 300€
  3. 200€
Last season, th_dk.png Roskilde Ravens devastated the tournament, coming in first place, while th_de.png diamondZ and th_us.png Evil Geniuses followed closely behind in second and third place. EMS IV also welcomed several new teams, such as th_us.png Team Teen Titans.

EMS V sign up information has yet to be posted, but will be announced at a later date. Stay tuned for updates.

Low prize pool but I've always enjoyed the replays. Continue hosting tournaments like this.

This time I root for Fnatic!

So how are they going to pay this prize if they weren't able to pay/didn't pay out EMS II and III? Provided what Kuroky said is true.

I've always had serious doubts over the prize money of such online tournaments..

Either they don't actually pay, or they pay you after a very long wait.

competitive dota has been kinda slow lately (euro scene) so i'm looking forward to this.

ESL has always pretty big delay paying out prizes (even to a year), but never heard of not paying at all. This is a pretty crediable organisation

Chill, one single error is nothing. It's a newspost, not a goddamn piece of legislature.

Great to see a fifth season. I'll be waiting for the epic eg vs ravens/fnatic/ks.int playoff games.
