mousesports kick off Intel Grand Slam S3 campaign with ESL Pro League S10 victory

Five teams are now tied in the Intel Grand Slam Season 3 race, with mousesports joining the current top four of Astralis, Evil Geniuses, fnatic, and Liquid by winning the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals.

In Odense, Denmark, mousesports continued to show their improved form which they first displayed at the CS:GO Asia Championships in China. With victories over Astralis, Evil Geniuses and fnatic, mousesports managed to secure back-to-back tournament wins after a period of middling results.

karrigan lifted the Pro League trophy on home soil

From the five IGS S3 tournaments played, we have seen five different teams lift trophies, with no one pulling ahead as we come close to the end of the year.

As the rules were changed after Liquid's 63-day IGS S2 speedrun, a team that wishes to win the Intel Grand Slam now needs to win four IGS titles within a window of ten events, with at least one of them is a Masters Championship event, which for 2020 will be IEM Katowice and ESL One Cologne, as well as any potential Major run by either ESL or DreamHack.

If a team is unable to win a Masters Championship event, they are required to win six tournaments inside a window of ten events to take the Intel Grand Slam title and the accompanying $1,000,000.

This is how the Intel Grand Slam Season 3 looks so far:

IEM Chicago - United States Liquid
ESL One New York - United States Evil Geniuses
DreamHack Masters Malmö - Sweden fnatic
IEM Beijing - Denmark Astralis
ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals - Europe mousesports
IEM Katowice 2020 - February 25-March 1
ESL One Cologne 2020 - July 6-12

LETS GO MOUZ! GERMAN CS IS FINALLY BACK AGAIN WOOOO!

spending one or two years living in other country has nothing to compare with Chrisj's situation. GameZ_iwni is right. He is spiritually German and represents Germany.
2019-12-09 01:09
Actually I've just been baiting but ChrisJ, and guys like Erkast do spend so long in a region they become embedded into that scene and basically become honorary members of it. NiKo was in the same situation as ChrisJ, but instead opted to leave the german scene so he doesn't have ties to it now and wouldn't be considered a german player. ChrisJ still remains under a German org and karrigan is half german so one can argue he still is within the scene

ChrisJ was a german mainstay in the scene until Mouz stopped with the german lineups. He still can be considered apart of the scene since he never left Mouz, but Mouz left germany

And seeing them living up the potential after cheering my heart out is amazing. Congrats to the boys and hope they keep up the good form. I think Woxic deserved to be mvp.
