ESL, players union announce 'Return to LAN' protocol

ESL Gaming moved closer to a return of in-person esports competition, announcing in tandem with the Counter-Strike Professional Players' Association a "Return to LAN" plan on Thursday.

Events moved strictly online last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but that could change later this year based on the deal struck between the event organizer and the players union.

According to a tweet from the CSPPA, the regulations cover:

--Testing and other measures before arrival at the event

--Travel and arrival at accommodation

--Creation of a controlled environment among participants, staff and others

--Ongoing COVID-19 testing procedures during stay

--Prepared actions in case of positive tests

--Prepared measures in order to ensure that players can return home safely

The plan to return to LAN (local area network) action is "pending local regulation and guidelines."

CSPPA chief executive officer Mads Oland said in a statement, "It is paramount for the CSPPA to protect the health and safety of our members. The players are eager to play LAN events again, but only if it can be done in a safe and responsible manner. It is our hope that with the guidance of these protocols, the players will be able to compete on LAN in early 2021."

ESL senior vice president of product Urich Schulz added in a statement, "Through this difficult year, one thing has always remained the priority for everyone at ESL and that is the safety and wellbeing of our community. We are of course excited at the prospect of a return to LAN tournaments, but this will only happen when we can be sure that the health of players, coaches, staff and the community at large is safeguarded. This protocol is a big step in the right direction for edging closer to a return of LAN tournaments."

On Wednesday, ESL Gaming announced that it plans to resume LAN competition fo

ENCE announce revamped CS:GO roster

ENCE will have a new-look lineup for the upcoming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive season after announcing a series of roster moves Wednesday.

The organization will keep Aleksi "allu" Jalli and Joonas "doto" Forss, both of Finland. Joining the duo will be three new faces: Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer of Denmark, Pawel "dycha" Dycha of Poland and Lotan "Spinx" Giladi of Israel.

This marks the first time that the Finnish organization has assembled an international lineup.



ENCE is hoping to move on from a turbulent offseason in which controversy brewed on social media. Tensions reportedly increased after allu made comments about the team on a podcast, and more commentary followed online.

"The events in December put us in a situation where we had to evaluate whether we can continue with allu moving forward as an organization," ENCE general manager Niklas "Willkey" Ojalainen said in a statement. "He hasn't been a perfect teammate during his time with us and has acknowledged that to us as well.

"Even if it is true that there has been tension between the players in the team, the allegations made towards allu on social media and singling him out as the sole reason for them are very far from the truth. It is easy to start pointing fingers at someone, but there are multiple people responsible in a team for the choices and the working conditions."

ENCE head coach Eetu "sAw" Saha said in a statement, "allu is a world elite level AWPer who can perform in any given situation. As an experienced player, he can give our newcomers a much-needed perspective on how to improve."

The new lineup is set to debut in March as part of ESL Pro League Season 13.
