fnatic join Intel Grand Slam race with DreamHack Masters Malmö victory

By beating Vitality in the grand final and claiming the DreamHack Masters Malmö trophy, fnatic have tied Evil Geniuses and Liquid in the campaign for the $1 million Intel Grand Slam Prize prize.

In their offline debut with Maikil "Golden" Selim and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, fnatic managed to significantly surpass expectations, lifting the trophy after beating the likes of Astralis and Vitality.

With the championship on home soil, fnatic have become the third team with one Intel Grand Slam Season 3 title to their name, the same as the two North American sides Evil Geniuses and Liquid.

fnatic have joined Liquid and Evil Geniuses in the hunt for $1,000,000

The next Intel Grand Slam event is IEM Beijing, where fnatic won't be in competition, but the other two Intel Grand Slam Season 3 tournament winners will. Alongside them, Astralis, Vitality, FaZe, and mousesports will be looking for their first Intel Grand Slam Season 3 notch.

After Liquid's speedy Intel Grand Slam Season 2 victory, the rules of the competition have been changed to increase the difficulty of winning the $1,000,000 prize. In season 3, teams can now still win the Intel Grand Slam by claiming four titles, but only if at least one of the four is from a Masters Championship event, which for 2020, will be IEM Katowice and ESL One Cologne (and any potential Major run by either ESL or DreamHack). Otherwise, teams are required to win six tournaments inside a window of ten events to win the Intel Grand Slam.

The played out and upcoming Intel Grand Slam Season 3 events are as follows:

IEM Chicago - United States Liquid
ESL One New York - United States Evil Geniuses
DreamHack Masters Malmö - Sweden fnatic
IEM Beijing - November 7-10
ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals - December 3-8
IEM Katowice 2020 - February 25-March 1
ESL One Cologne 2020 - July 6-12

Majors mean nothing in 2019/2020 cs. Irrelevant events with inaccurate qualifiers. ESL One NYC can't be compared to trash terribly produced Berlin major in "eu"

it was a fluke, their era is over. they're still a top 5 team for sure but they'll never dominate again like they did in 2018.
2019-10-07 03:49
nobody says that astralis has still an era. I just think its funny that he said "still no astralis", while they had the best results since the player break.

2019-10-06 23:17
Ez
2019-10-06 23:03
The next month will be close as never cs:go ever was, with 4 to 6 teams able to beat each other any time. So I highly doubt we will see a grand slam winner this season.
2019-10-06 23:03
Yeah this season will probably be without a winner

2019-10-07 07:49
With these rule changes there is no way any team is winning the grand slam lol, top 10 teams too inconsistent and they can all beat each other on any given day.
