ESL has added the new UT to it’s line up. From the ESL site:
“In the near future, starting globally, with European and North American regions, supported by Epic Games and Zaccubus as shoutcaster, ESL will open ladders in various gametypes, run various cups and leagues, each supported by powerful Anti Cheat client. News about first competitions at ESL will be out in few weeks!”
Predictably, tongues are wagging in the UT forums saying that it is not ready. Only time will tell if they are right. I have to trust that Epic and ESL have had many discussions about making sure this goes smoothly. The mention of the ESL Anti Cheat client is interesting. Could it be incorporated into the UT core at some point?
