Not solely does Farming Simulator 19‘s new esports mode have a pick & ban phase so teams can block rival farmers from driving their favourite tractors, it’s potential to lose a match to a tractor rush. I couldn’t think about how builders Giants Software would flip their sedate until ’em up right into a aggressive game however they actually have. The 3v3 mode has groups compete to reap wheat and hay, easy sufficient, with a depth of technique and techniques from rising rating multipliers and character perks and tactically blocking bridges and… what a factor. What a factor that is. I’ve been beaming all morning. Come see it.
That’s a lot greater than I’d anticipated. Hell, I’d nonetheless half-expected this to be a prank riffing on those “360 Crop Rotation” meme videos. Nope!
You can lose to a tractor rush if the opposite crew seize all three harvesters or balers. You can construct a rating multiplier by delivering wheat. You can max your multiplier to jam the opposite crew’s bale-carrying conveyor belt. You can bar automobiles from choice e.g. if you realize a rival farmer is a satan behind the wheel of a Massey Ferguson 9407S Teleloader. You can decide character perks like a much bigger trailer or disabling one of many different crew’s bridges. These are all issues it has, as if the game had been a MOBA. Giants Software actually have pushed Farming Simulator into the form of a digital sport and I’m fascinated.
If you fancy some severe farming, head here for directions on downloading the FSL mode.
Giants plan to carry the primary Farming Simulator League event at FarmCon 19 in July. You higher consider they’re taking the FSL critically too. They also have a €250,000 (£218ok) prize pool.
