[Taipei, Taiwan] MSI, a world leading gaming brand, has extended its partnership with ESL, the world?s largest esports company, for ESL Pro League Seasons 12. As the Official Gaming Partner of ESL Pro League, MSI will sponsor Seasons 12 with cutting-edge gaming hardware, owning the laptop, PC, including motherboards and graphic cards, and monitor categories, and will work to captivate fans through engaging activities. Currently, ESL Pro League is running the Special Qualifier. The 6 winning teams will advance to Seasons 12 and compete with other 18 elite teams from all over the world.

"It is so exciting to partner with ESL. Our extended partnership in 2020 guarantees global players not merely another year of world-class gaming events but also incredible gamer-driven innovations that will reshape their gaming experiences. As the global pandemic is still unstable, we encourage all gamers stay at home with MSI, watch the live streaming of ESL Pro League?s exciting matches and keep healthy," says Sam Chern, VP Marketing, MSI.


In Special Qualifier, the European, Asian and Oceanian qualifiers will be played as BO3 double-elimination brackets only the finals are BO5. The South American qualifier only consists of one BO5 series, given it only has two teams. In North America, the three teams will play a round-robin format to keep the chances more equal. In addition, those teams that have been moved from ESL Pro League to Mountain Dew League will get their chance to re-qualify into Season 12 through a special qualifier. Three teams, part of Season 11, but were unable to participate due to epidemic travel restrictions are now re-invited to Season 12. Total world's 24 best teams will fight for the Pro League Championship in another 4-week long season this fall!

To promote the Special Qualifier, during the event (June 8~21), players who purchase MSI specific gaming models and upload invoices to MSI Redeem system will get the corresponding ESL Gift Cards till the end of July. (For USA only)
