ESL One New York 2019 announced

The 2019 edition of ESL One New York has been announced with a $200,000 prize pool.

The event will take place on September 26-29, with the playoffs set to be held in front of a live audience at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York in the final two days.

Six invited and two qualified sides will kick off the action on September 26 with two GSL groups and the top two sides from both groups will move on to the playoffs.

Barclays Center will host the playoffs

All the games in the tournament will be best-of-threes except the grand final on Sunday, which will be a best-of-five.

The qualification slots will be up for grabs in the European and North American closed qualifiers where four invited sides will be joined by four open qualifier teams. Both closed stages will be played on June 27.

ESL needs to step up, 200k is not enough for tier 1. Nowadays 250k is small as well, at least 300-500k for tier1.

Ibuypower masters had a 200k prizepool yet they managed to get teams like team liquid, astralis, fnatic, and faze so im sure esl could pick up even more teams because its more prestigious and it counts toward grand slam

That's because it was right for the major so teams could use it as warm up. Grand slam is true, but lowering the pricepool 50k is unacceptable
2019-05-01 10:37
250k should be enough, considering the winner of atleast 4 ESL and iem grand slam events In a year will get $1M. Also, I guess 10 grand slam events were conducted last year. So yeah, 250k Is enough, if not much.

Best of 5 final, yikes
2019-04-30 18:46
Yeah the final should just be an overtime series on a single map
2019-04-30 19:04
What’s your point man? You rather have a 5 hour-long final with teams not really mastering some maps sides?
2019-04-30 19:24
If you want to win a big event you should have a big map pool. A bo5 really makes sure that the best team wins
2019-04-30 19:44
I prefer events with 16 teams rather than with 8, but ok

16 teams takes like 3 weeks. Last major seemed like it took a month. 2-3 day event best
2019-04-30 18:49
IEM Sydney takes 6 days and it also has 16 teams. That's accurate length for me, but just my opinion
2019-04-30 18:53
Sydney has a shit format though, teams can make the playoffs or be eliminated in a matter of hours
