ESL to host Major at IEM Katowice

MIRAA
July 12th, 2018 16:15

ESL has announced that it will host the first Counter-Strike Major of 2019 as part of IEM Katowice.

This will be ESL's sixth CS Major, the first since Cologne 2016 and the third in the Polish city after EMS One Katowice 2014 and ESL One Katowice 2015.

The event will begin on February 14 with the week-long New Challengers Stage, which will be played at ESL's Katowice studio.

The eight best teams from that stage will join the top eight teams from the previous Major, which will be held by FACEIT in September, in the New Legends Stage, running from February 21-24 at the International Congress Center (ICC) as part of the IEM Expo tradeshow.

Katowice will stage its third Major next year

The Major will then culminate with the four-day playoffs, from February 28 to March 3, at the iconic Spodek Arena, where the winner will take home the lion's share of the event's $1 million prize pool.

“IEM Katowice has grown to become one of the most iconic esports tournaments in the world,” Michal Blicharz, Vice-President of Pro Gaming at ESL, said in a statement.

"I expect that coupling the heritage of IEM with the gravity of a Valve Major Championship will elevate the tournament to what will be the most incredible IEM event in history."

The event will mark the seventh consecutive IEM in Katowice. The most recent edition came to an end in March, with fnatic taking home the bulk of the tournament's $500,000 prize fund after beating FaZe in a five-map final.

They litteraly can't stream on fb bcs of the community's backlash. In the rules of the major it states that the favored viewing platform of the spectators should be used --> TWITCH + YOUTUBE Link of article written by vavle itself: blog.counter-strike.net/index.php/csgo-m..

All matches will be in the arena. Also those in the group stage. This is new and awesome. The second major in Poland over two years. Valve appreciates us. I hope that the crowd will show strength again.

nope "in the New Legends Stage, running from February 21-24 at the International Congress Center (ICC) as part of the IEM Expo tradeshow." The Challengers stage will be played in ESL studio. Only playoffs will be played in Spodek so it will be the same as at previous majors.
2018-07-12 16:31
Worst idea ever. Shit poor country that can’t even charge a dollar for entry or nobody can afford to go. Plz more NA majors where it’s actually nice to be.

"people from dangerous poor countries" yes, that is why some players from one team get visas and some dont evethough they are from the same country and organization LUL
2018-07-12 19:40
No it’s because they are thugs not their country if the rest of team gets in. BR can get in just not thug KNG ya see
2018-07-12 19:58
Exactly you get it. Somewhere that can charge an entrance fee in a place where people live like humans and have money to spend so the event makes money. Glad you see it my way. Hopefully more will soon and we can make csgo great again
2018-07-12 19:32
You are supposed to be 35/36? Oh my.

Yes you are if you can’t do simple math and result to insults when you’re called out on it :)
2018-07-13 02:34
If 82 is the year of your birth you are either 35 or 36. Dumbass
2018-07-13 10:28
But I was born in 87 like my profile says and you think I’m the stupid one here? Just fell outa my chair laughing at you plz stop making me laugh kiddo
2018-07-13 19:43
Americans are so fuckin retarded. I can't see the year you were born on your profile. Also I am older than you you muppet. I guess that sperm that created you was trapped in your dad's ballsack since 82. This would explain a lot. imgur.com/a/Py4M0ua
2018-07-13 22:20
I agree entirely. Especially that there is no McDonald's, nor KFC anywhere around the arena
2018-07-14 15:10
Those places will kill you bro! That’s the one thing goin for the place is no terrible fast food killin folk!

One of Valve's rules for majors is that they need to be broadcast on the most accessible platform (or something along those lines), meaning that it must be broadcast on Twitch.
2018-07-12 16:23
valve wont give them a major if they only would broadcast it from facebook.

OH FUCK YES For me personally Cologne and Katowice are the two best places with the best crowds by far. The hype and atmosphere is insane. Not to mention this will be the first time we'll get an IEM major, such a long time coming. Whoever wins it, will not only be remembered as major champions, but have their names engraved forever on that IEM trophy, which is something truly special by itself.

+1 i will reply what someone post Ironically on twitter about being in poland instead of denmark. Tell me if it is true " Maybe it's because Denmark simply supports esports & CS:GO TOO much. It's mainstream, the government on all levels supports it, it's literally being taught in our schools, we have a thriving pro-scene and instead of "soccer moms" there's "counterstrike moms". Shameful country. "

Why never in Nordic countries?? OH BECAUSE ITS TOO EXPENSIVE HERE... Fucking poor ESL shit. Always in some cheap and shitty 3rd world country.
2018-07-12 18:27
Copenhagen would be the only location I can see that would be good since people from Southern Sweden and maybe Norway can just drive over. You also have Northern Germans who could drive over. Would be quite a road trip but I think CS fans would do that for the major. But then we get back to your point, ESL are stingy bastards.
2018-07-12 19:22
Ehm. Where are you from? The flights between Nordic countries are cheap AF (Helsinki-CPH 80 € for a two-way ticket) and actually they are cheap everywhere in Europe. If it was in Stockholm, we could go there with a cruise ship also which is like 50e for a two-way. So the traveling and it costs are not a problem at all. Traveling 300km back and forth with a bus/train in Finland is more expensive than flying to Copenhagen.
2018-07-12 19:46
O shit mb Sry I don't know how it is in Europe, I live in a really isolated city in Australia called Perth. I just assumed since European countries are so close together that people would prefer to drive but I guess I'm wrong.
2018-07-12 19:48
Oh ok :D I actually have a relative living in Perth (works at Kalgoorlie mine) and its one of my must-visit targets. Its a very beautiful city by the sea. Yeah we got a lot of those low-cost airlines here that are not state-owned. Actually people prefer to fly even inside Finland if the distance is more than 400km or smth.
2018-07-12 20:00
How does he work there? it's 600km away :o Perth is very different from rest of Australia and the main reason I prefer Perth to anywhere else in the country is the people. Come in the summer. Visit Adventure world, Kings park, Perth Zoo (I've already been so they are boring to me but they are the three most popular places on tourist sites and shit) and last but most importantly the beaches. Try your hand at surfing, it's a big thing here. I'd need to know more about you if you actually want me to recommend specific places but just try and relax while you're here.
2018-07-12 20:26
They work there for a week or two and then come back home for 1-2 weeks. :) I think its because Kalgoorlie is a very small city and its very far from everything so not all the workers want to live there.
2018-07-12 20:30
Yeah that's true. Thing is, it's not that small for WA standards. Perth is the huge dog in the block with 2mil+ people but last I checked the second and third largest didn't even have 100k. I think Mandurah is close to it but Mandurah is kinda in driving distance of Perth so I don't think it counts.
2018-07-12 20:37
That still brings us back to the other problem though which is that ESL are cheap dogs.
