ESEA League is an Electronic sports competitive video gaming community founded by E-Sports Entertainment Association (ESEA). It is widely known for its anti-cheat software. ESEA features a system that allows players of all levels to play matches with others. [1]

About[edit]

ESEA League began offering lessons to improve gaming skills in 2003 providing instruction in Half-Life, Counter-Strike, and Warcraft III.[2] ESEA created the first professional fantasy e-sports league in 2004.[3] ESEA began its league history with Counter-Strike,[4] but later added Team Fortress 2 (TF2) a game which gained more popularity after its adaption to "Free-to-play" gaming. [5] ESEA's anti-cheat and player validation software has been adopted by other leagues as well. [6]
