The Intel® Grand Slam is a competition unlike any other. The award is designed to be an achievement to crown the greatest team in a specific period of time
Huge congratulations to Team Liquid, the second winners of the $1,000,000 Intel Grand Slam! And now they have another shot at this new season with the updated conditions (see below).
Intel Extreme Masters Katowice and ESL One Cologne powered by Intel are the most difficult events in the ESL calendar and winning at one of these two events will be a requirement to completing the Intel Grand Slam with four victories.
Winning the Intel Grand Slam outside of IEM Katowice and ESL One Cologne will be possible, but teams will need to win six championships inside a run of ten tournaments overall to accomplish this.
The new rules are as follows:
The Intel Grand Slam in Season 3 can be completed by the first team to complete either of the two conditions below:
1. Winning four Masters level CSGO tournaments including one (or more) designated Masters level CSGO tournament inside a span of ten consecutive tournaments.
2. Winning six Masters level CSGO tournaments inside a span of ten consecutive events.
Masters level CSGO events are currently Intel Extreme Masters, ESL One, ESL Pro League and DreamHack Masters. Designated Masters level CSGO tournaments for 2020 are Intel Extreme Masters Katowice and ESL One Cologne. Any potential CSGO Major by ESL or DreamHack in the future would also be considered as having that status.
The list of eligible IGS Masters level events & championship level events is available on the Intel Grand Slam website.
