|The 12 fastest riders from each platform will advance to the Heat Races. The rider’s single fastest time trial will be recorded and reflected on the leaderboard and there is no limit on how many times users can attempt to qualify.|
Players will also have the option to see how their racing stacks up against other players in real-time by opting to race against “ghost” riders. Players can select “Race against ghost riders” and select from top players on the leaderboard, which will pit them against a transparent version of the selected rider. This is an exciting option that allows competitors to race against the best!
In phase 2, each console will have three separate Heat Races. The first race will determine seeding and position on the gate. The initial positioning for this race will be based upon overall standing on the leaderboard. The second race will determine the first and second players that will get to punch their ticket to the eSX Finals, as first and second place will secure their spot. For all 10 other riders, there’s still a chance to taste victory in the Last Chance Qualifiers. In the “Last Chance Qualifiers”, the remaining 10 riders will compete one last time, with the victor securing the 3rd and final spot for their platform to compete in the eSX Finals.
The eSX Finals will bring all platforms together and consist of the top 9 riders who will face off against each other to determine the true eSX Champion. There will be two races in this stage, the first race will determine seeding and position on the gate, and the initial positioning for this race will be based upon overall standing on the leaderboard. The second race is for all the marbles, and the winner will be crowned eSX Champion and receive the grand prize.
The eSX eSport Champion will take home the grand prize, a brand-new Yamaha YZ450F!
|This year, all 3 podium riders will be receiving a Yamaha motorcycle, further upping the ante for all competitors! Second place will receive a Yamaha YZ125 and third will be awarded a Yamaha TTR110.|
