Intel Grand Slam rules out regionally split events ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

In the spirit of finding the truly dominant team, ESL has made a small adjustment to the Intel Grand Slam rules that has a far-reaching ripple effect on teams going forward.

The coronavirus pandemic led to the world’s best CS:GO teams separated across regional divisions with multiple winners. These events produce multiple winners, which makes it difficult to determine the best team overall. As a result, these events will not count towards the Intel Grand Slam as they do not accurately portray the best teams.

The vision behind the Intel Grand Slam is to reward the world’s most dominant team. Tournaments with multiple winners in multiple divisions do not point to the world’s best team with enough clarity

This change takes effect from the recently concluded ESL Pro League finals and will continue until further notice. Teams were notified of the change before competing in the playoffs of these events.

As such, the current Intel Grand Slam standings are:

  • Team Liquid – 1 trophy, four chances left

  • Evil Geniuses – 1 trophy, five chances left

  • Fnatic – 1 trophy, six chances left

  • Astralis – 1 trophy, seven chances left

  • Mousesports - 1 trophy, eight chances left

  • Natus Vincere - 1 trophy, nine chances left

Six Master tournament wins or four ESL Pro Tour Masters tournament wins, including a Masters Championship will determine the champions of this year’s Intel Grand Slam.
