First online competition for Farming Simulator 22

FSL Season 5 started this summer at two on-site events. Team HELM, sponsored by HELM AG, one of the world's major independent agricultural enterprises, conquered the competitions at GIANTS Software’s annual event FarmConand gamescom, the world’s largest event for computer and video games.

This weekend, all teams have to show their skills in the first online tournament in Season 5. Team astragon will compete with Matthias Becker aka Bauer Matze as well as Thomas Calamaras aka Calamaras and Christian Klug aka Major Melon to take home victory and prize money this time. Simultaneously, it’s a premiere for Farming Simulator 22, as previous seasons took place in its predecessor.

Harvesting, baling, and scoring

The FSL is a team-based competition which demands coordination and strategies. The Pick & Ban phase before a match determines the machines available to each team. Some or even all team members have to switch to different vehicles during the competition, whether harvesters, balers, tractors to pull or stack, telehandlers, or even a truck.

The teams with three players each compete for the higher score by harvesting wheat, pressing bales and delivering them to their barn within the ten minutes playing time. This weekend, the competition starts at 10:00 CET and will be streamed on official GIANTS Software channels.

Farming Simulator 22 is available for PC, Mac, PlayStation®5 (PS5™), Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. The Farming Simulator League is played in the Arena mode within the multiplayer section.
