Intel Grand Slam gets a third season with stricter rules ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Intel Grand Slam season 3 begins on Thursday at IEM Chicago. Three more IGS events have been announced for 2019, with a potential fourth, IEM Beijing teased by ESL. These events are;

  • IEM Chicago - July 18-21

  • ESL One New York - September 26-29

  • DreamHack Masters Malmö - October 1-6

  • ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals - December 

  • IEM Beijing - November (unconfirmed)

A $1 million prize is still being offered to the team that wins four IGS tournaments hosted by ESL and Dreamhack. These wins must be within a span of ten events, with at least one win from a designated Masters level competition. IEM Katowice and ESL One Cologne are two such eligible Master tournaments in 2020. In the absence of a Masters level win, six tournament victories will be required within ten events instead. 

Team Liquid received the $1 million dollar prize after it won the Intel Grand Slam season 2 at ESL One Cologne within 144 days. Winning four events in a row, Team Liquid broke Astralis' season 1 record by 379 days. Had this new rule been in place for season 2, Team Liquid still would have won the prize, but the same can't be said for Astralis
