Unfortunately, when purchasing ESEA League fees for Season 29, some players were unable to register themselves successfully, or their team due to an error that was shown at the final stage of the checkout process. After going over all the options over the last two days, we believe the fairest solution is to extend League registration for all teams. Although we have not extended registration for the last several seasons, we feel it is necessary at this point to treat all teams fairly. It would be unfair for a team in Main or Advanced to have spent months grinding to higher divisions only to be unable to proceed with paying due to a payment issue and therefore lose their spot
As a result Season 29 will have the following schedule:
Registration closes - September 10th
Deadline for League fee refunds - September 15th
First default day - September 17th
Rosters lock - November 4th
Last day of regular season - November 18th
Playoffs start - November 20th
Playoffs end - December 16th
If you want to sign up for the Open division, you may do so by going here. Teams who were removed from the higher divisions of the League (Intermediate, Main, Advanced) may return to that division by having their team leader make an ESEA support ticket linking to the team page. A staff member will then manually add them to the higher division if they had a slot in that division earlier this week.
The times in the League status have been updated to reflect the new schedule.
We would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused by this delay. We are incredibly excited to get the next season underway, so no one is more disappointed than us that we are having to push back and delay registration.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to make a support ticket.
