ESL One New York with $250,000

ESL have announced that this year's ESL One New York event, taking place in Brooklyn's Barclays Center from October 1-2, will feature a CS:GO tournament with $250,000 on the line.

The 15,000+ seater arena Barclays Center situated in Brooklyn, New York, home of NHL's New York Islanders, will play host to this year's ESL One New York, which will for the first time feature CS:GO amongst the games.

According to the announcement, eight of the world's best teams will battle it out for the $250,000 prize purse in "East Coast's biggest esports event".


Barclays Center will play host to ESL One New York 

ESL have also revealed the format of the tournament, which will feature double-elimination groups and a single-elimination, best-of-three playoffs bracket.

With $250,000 on the line and one of the biggest venues we've seen in CS:GO, ESL One New York promises to be one of the most prestigious non-major tournaments of this year, alongside DreamHack's Masters events, SL i-League StarSeries and more.

2016-05-04 18:12
Its gonna be a major, mark my words.
2016-05-04 18:45
I doubt it, my feeling is that Valve will be giving the last major of the year to Dreamhack as opposed to having 2 ESL majors. And yes, I know Dreamhack and ESL are owned by the same company. EDIT: Also if it is going to be a major why would they announce a 250k prize pool? All majors from now on are surely going to at least match the £1m from MLG Columbus.

The ESL One Cologne 2016 also was announced with a 250k prize pool at the beginning! But I really hope, that there won't be 2/3 majors in NA this year.

and why not? there can't always be majors in Europe, it's called parity.
2016-05-05 02:32
because cs is dominated by europe
2016-05-05 17:56
And? Olympic games are dominated by USA. And there are Olympic games all around the world.
2016-05-08 17:31
I like the current balance. And even if dreamhack and esl have same parent company they are still quite different.
2016-05-04 20:32
no
2016-05-04 21:33
DHW will probably be the last major of the year.
2016-05-05 01:13
I dont think that would be big enough for a major, with these current standards.
2016-05-05 03:02
It will be. Consistently one of the largest tournaments every year, it's been a major in the past and dreamhack is due for a major. Also fits the timing after ESL Cologne. Not to mention it's guaranteed to be packed, hyped, and have a lot of viewers since it's in the heart of CS that is Sweden.
2016-05-05 06:01
It's held in the Barclay Center. I can only imagine that the overhead is ridiculously expensive. Use your brain a little.

it should be, mlg(north america), esl(germany) and Dramhack (sweden). i think valve or someone said no company hosts a major 2 times a year (they count esl and dreamhack as separate companies)
2016-05-04 21:28
esl already did that (2014 and 2015) but dunno if something changed, but yes that is the best option

The only events (not leagues like ESL Pro League, ELEAGUE, ECS) with a prize pool higher than 250k are the Alibaba 1.5m tournament and MLG Columbus. Why are people acting like it is a small amount?

Think about it, october is the date when Cluj-Napocca was going, and i don't think we'll ever see another DH Winter major. Either way, there have always been two constant majors every year: -ESL Cologne -Dreamhack

Only one (1) person had VISA issues, and that was because he (pyth) overstayed in NA when he lived there.
2016-05-04 18:54
yes but this event is pretty much dead for Asian or even Rossiyan teams
2016-05-04 18:59
They are fine as long as they have: 1) Place to live in their home country 2) Income 3) No criminal background And last, but not definitely not least; they apply for the VISA WAY BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT STARTS, NOT 1 WEEK BEFORE IT'S SUPPOSED TO START (hint: The Mongolz).

You point out it's the home of a NHL team while putting out a picture of it showing the colours of Brooklyn Nets of the NBA, which was the actual team this arena was built for. Funny.
