ImageE-Sports Entertainment Association released the schedule for their upcoming fifteenth season.

In less than a day, the offline finals of the fifteenth season of ESEA League will launch in Dallas, Texas. The $90,000 event features one team from Europe and five from North America. A trailer to hype you up even more was provided by ESEA and can be seen here.

During the previous season we witnessed a lot of interesting moments, such as having the legendary players US Kyle 'Ksharp' Miller and US Ronald 'Rambo' Kim streaming the tournament on side, as well as their former teammate US Salvatore 'Volcano' Garozzo actually playing in the event for US Dynamic . We also witnessed ESEA co-founder US Craig 'Torbull' Levine’s joke about Team 3D’s "returning."

Similar to the current situation regarding the European teams, the previous season featured only one team from Europe as well and that was SE Ninjas in Pyjamas which without much doubt won the grand final by defeating US Jordan 'n0thing' Gilbert's US compLexity Gaming in three maps.
