    Really? 'Farming Simulator' is getting its own esports league

    AJ Dellinger - endgadget




    Are you ready for some competitive virtual farming? Giants Software announced today that it will a run an esports league for its unreasonably popular game Farming Simulator. The first season of Farming Simulator League will consist of 10 tournaments that will take place across Europe. Competitors will go head to head with a chance to win up to $280,000 in prize money put up by the developer.

    According to the company, tournaments will be held at major gaming events like Gamescom and Paris Games Week. Each event will allow teams and players to earn circuit points and win prizes. Once the regular season has concluded, the teams with the most points earned will gather at FarmCon 2020 to crown the Farming Simulator Champion. The winner will take home about $110,000 in prizes.

    This actually isn't the first time Giants Software has kicked the (tractor) tires on a competitive structure for Farming Simulator. The company tested the waters last year with a Farming Simulator Championship series and has operated competitve events with the game at agriculture-related events. Players of the game have gotten more serious over the years, and there's even a custom controller out there for the diehards. This year the competition will take on the form of a traditional esports league, complete with sponsors from the gaming world including Intel and Logitech.

    I bought a train simulator game. It was on sale for under five dollars. So I'm taking my modern European express out of the yard and I roll the train going around the first curve. Curve was real gradual (1/8th of a mile) and I was approaching the blistering speeds of 40 kms per hour

    I traveled about 30 kilometers on the map, something like 45 minutes of game time and then I realized, what in the bloody fuck am I doing???

    daughter who played Survivor

    Interesting fun fact - the second time Kelley played Survivor, she lost exactly one quarter of her body weight within 37 days. (lost 31 pounds and started at 124 pounds)
