Players vote to play in the ESL Pro League instead of PEA

Teams that were set to play in the PEA CS:GO league have voted to instead play in the ESL Pro League North American division. 

Late last year PEA told teams that they would not be able to play in both competitions, which caused a ton of drama including open letters and players being kicked from teams by owners. 

A report from Slingshot eSports, which was later confirmed by player spokesperson Scott "SirScoots" Smith, revealed that the teams in PEA took a vote yesterday and decided to play in the ESL competition leaving PEA with no teams for its league. 

This now means that PEA will probably drop out of CS:GO, and it is unknown if the organisation will even continue to function after this blow. An official statement is expected in the coming days.
