Firefall and ESL to offer cash tourneys in the US and Europe
Red 5 Studios and the Electronic Sports League have announced Go4Firefall, a tournament offering cash prizes on both sides of the pond.
Following the ESL’s regular Go4 system, the weekly competitions focus on Firefall’s Jetball 5 vs 5 mode, and will be free to enter. Each weekly cup offers a $1,000 or €1,000 prize, and the best eight teams from the weekly cups will get a shot at a $5,000 and €5,000 monthly cup.
Depending on how many weeks there are in a particular month, that means there’s up to $10,000 in the US league and €10,000 in Europe on offer each month.
ESL TV will stream most matches via Twitch, with casting by Lauren ‘Pansy’ Scott.
