Introducing the Farming Simulator League

After testing the waters in 2018 with the first season of the Farming Simulator Championship, GIANTS Software is ready to dive deeper into the world of eSports with the upcoming season two.
Major changes lie ahead, when the Farming Simulator Championship becomes the Farming Simulator League, a full-fledged eSports league with 10 tournaments across Europe. At the end of the season, the best teams will compete for the title of the Farming Simulator Champion and 100.000€ in prizes. Every single tournament will not only grant circuit points for the best teams, but also wield big prizes, bringing the total prize pool for season two up to a total of 250.000€

GIANTS Software teamed up with some of the industries finest for the upcoming league, partnering with Logitech G, Intel, noblechairs as well as long term partner Nitrado to provide the best experience possible to both, players and fans of the Farming Simulator League.

„We have a unique opportunity“, explains Christian Ammann, CEO of GIANTS Software and manager of the eSports division. „competitive farming is something people enjoy for years now, but it hasn’t been done in eSports so far. We have lots of eSports enthusiasts in our company who can’t wait to show the world that farming can indeed be fun and competitive at the same time. We believe we found the right mix of real farming and fun to play game elements to ensure everyone will find it entertaining.“

The game itself is changing as well. Not only will the new league be held in the brand new Farming Simulator 19, but it will also move from bale stacking to a competitive 3 vs 3 mode where teams challenge each other to determine who is the best on the field. The game will, of course, stand true to its roots in farming and combine real field work like harvesting with fun and challenging game elements. GIANTS Software will reveal more about the new game mode in the near future.

This is just the beginning, so stay tuned for more information around the new Farming Simulator League in the near future.

I couldn't figure out one thing though.
Is this going to be a "must be on site" event(s) or will we be able to attend remotely like a MP session?
And of course the inevitable question, will it work for the consoles too or is it just a PC thing?

Ugh, really, instead of fixing the game, Giants spent time doing this?

While we will share more details in the future, a tiny heads up: We will have on-site and online tournaments, HOWEVER, as it will be a cirquit point system, only playing online tournaments will not bring you to the championships and the big money.

For now it's Europe only. Let's see how that turns out.

It is on site! Not online.

Also i feel this kind of way to advertise Farming Simulator very lame, sorry but turning Farming Simulator to another competitive game? Really?

Money prices would of course be very good but I guess I'm gonna leave that to pros.
What I'm really interested in is participating and having fun.
So, I see some hope here for being able to turn on my PS4 and participate in the tournaments from my couch.
Hope that happens.
