Vi har tidligere kunnet rapportere om de diverse detaljene som er blitt sluppet ut om den kommende ESL Pro Tour-ligaen for CS:GO, som skal starte neste år, men nå, i følge Jarek 'DeKay' Lewis via Dexerto, har det kommet noe ganske viktig informasjon om ligaen. Tilsynelatende er det flere eksklusivitetsregler.
"Beginning January 1st 2020, all member teams of Pro League shall not play in other Counter-Strike leagues, this means non Valve sponsored competitions where the first day of competition (excluding qualifiers) and the grand final day are more than fourteen (14) days apart, besides Pro League."
Slik står det beskrevet i et dokument fra ESL Pro League, som Dexerto tilsynelatende har fått tak i.
"All member teams of Pro League shall limit their tournament participation days, meaning the active competition days of a tournament they participate in regardless of if they play on that day or not, to not more than 60 days per calendar year (not including travel, media days, or break days). This number excludes official Valve competitions such as Minors and Majors, online qualifiers, and also excludes Pro League competition days. Exceptions to the number of tournament days allowed can be granted by the Members Meeting."
"During the League Season (per jointly aligned schedule), teams shall not play in any other tournaments/leagues. Member teams may play online qualifiers for tournaments of $200,000 or higher in prize money during this period. This number excludes official Valve competitions such as Minors and Majors, and online qualifiers."
Dexerto påstår også at ESP Pro League-lag må godkjenne disse reglene for å overhodet kunne delta.
