The future of ESL is one that looks bright. There are a lot of people who watch and follow ESL and its teams closely because they know that things are about to change. In the near future, there will be a new power house in ESL. This is going to be the power that pushes all of the other European teams out of their comfort zone and make them compete on an even field.
Right now, ESL has four international teams. They are mousesports, GE Tigers, VP and TSM. These four teams have been playing against each other for almost a whole year now and they have a combined record of thirty-two wins and twelve losses. Now this doesn’t mean that these teams aren’t good. They just don’t look like they can challenge the giants of the world right now.
What will the future hold for ESL then? Well, there is no doubt that more international teams will try to take a shot at beating the best teams in the world. That means that the quality of play will rise. There are several European teams that look like they can challenge the world’s strongest teams right now, but only time will tell.
It also means that the overall quality of play in ESL is very high right now. Only time will tell if and how big this team can get. Right now it looks like a strong second to Astralis, though TSM has shown some promise as well. If Astralis continues to show that they can’t be beat, then there will be even more reason to watch TSM.
I’m also not saying that TSM can’t be better than Astralis. Right now TSM is just above teams like Lunat and coL. If they continue to develop the strategies that they have been developing so far, they could easily surpass Lunat and coL. I think that you would have a pretty good idea of what the future of us would look like after seeing this season of ESL.
I can only imagine what the future holds for ESL. As I said before, there are a lot of international teams that will continue to grow and expand. The scene itself will never die, though there will probably be less of it during the first few years of ESL. I think that players like Cloud and mousesports will do great in the future. The world of esl will continue to change, and we can only expect this to make the game even more fun to play and watch.
