With the ESL Pro League and CS:GO major dates changing slightly for 2019 ESEA Season 30 will be the training season for 2019 and will not promote to the ESL Pro League. Once again the training season will not feature a LAN event. This will allow us to perfectly align our first two seasons to end before the player break toward the end of July extending to the middle of August. By not having a LAN event for the first (training) season we will finish before the player break and can then start Season 32 after the player break has ended.
