The successful team of publisher astragon Entertainment, Die Landeier by astragon (German for “The country eggs”), will also have to face some fierce competition within the group stage D on August 16, 2020 to prove that it legitimately counts as one of the top 4 teams of the league.
These are the upcoming events of the Farming Simulator League:
• The huge World Championship finals of Farming Simulator League will take place on September 19 and 20, 2020, pitting the 8 best teams of the world against each other in a fierce competition.
• The tournament offers a price pool of 100.000 Euro.
• The group stages, which are currently still running, serve as qualifications for the finals and feature the 16 best teams.
• The competitions of group stage D, which will also see the team of German publisher astragon Die Landeier by astragon, will take place on August 16, 2020.
• The successful team around captain Tobias Binder is confident and optimistic to enter the finals but also takes the challenges lieing ahead seriously.
More than a year has passed since GIANTS Software gave the starting signal for the second season of the Farming Simulator League at FarmCon 19. Since then, over 20 teams have continued to compete at 12 tournaments located in the biggest gaming and agricultural events throughout Europe such as Paris Games Week and the Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany. The goal of this long journey was not only to gain glory and prize money but also qualification points for the finals.
One team has been standing out throughout the complete season, thanks to their excellent performance: Die Landeier by astragon, consisting of Captain Tobias Binder aka DaWaldler, the master harvesters Ralf Fliegauf aka Skuriles and Stefan Englberger aka BamBam as well as bale stacker Jascha Warnecke aka Gammelbacke, have been part of the current FSL season since day one. After starting their career as a Wild Card team at FarmCon 19, the Landeier and astragon have appeared as both partners and Seeded team at Gamescom 2019. To date, they were able to celebrate numerous wins by the strong and likeable team.
Due to their many achievements, Die Landeier by astragon are ranking in the top 4 of the whole Farming Simulator League. Their chances to become the winners of the last big tournament, and with this the best team in the world, are high.
Although their consistent above average score will benefit them in form of an advantageous position within the group stages, team captain Tobias Binder knows that the team should not be too casual about the coming matches: “The group stages as well as the World Championship will be very hard and exciting. Many teams were able to compensate their earlier deficits throughout the season and the whole field became much stronger.”
Teammate Jascha Warnecke is also already very excited about the tournament, even though he will let his other three team members go first in the coming matches: “Although I will not be able to participate in the group stage matches, I am already in a tense mood and will keep my fingers crossed for my team. I hope that we will emerge victorious in the group stage.”
The group stage D where Die Landeier by astragon will fight for their chance to enter the finals will be broadcasted on Sunday, August 16, 2020, at 12 pm (CEST) in a livestream. The big World Championship finals of the Farming Simulator League will take place on September 19 and 20, 2020, at 12 pm (CEST) on both days, respectively. All FSL streams will be shown on the Twitch channel of GIANTS Software.
