ESL One Cologne 2020 to be held online

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the tournament will be split into four regional divisions covering Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania.

ESL One Cologne 2020 will be held online in late August due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the tournament organiser announced on Thursday. In a statement, ESL explained that the decision was made following "extensive research and understanding of global travel regulations and individual national guidelines."

The announcement came as little surprise after an ESL representative had told HLTV.org that it would be "challenging" to host an event of this magnitude, with teams from all over the world, with the pandemic still raging and countries like the United States, Brazil and Russia being left out of the European Union's list of "safe travel destinations".

ESL initially entertained the idea of hosting the tournament at a studio in Cologne from August 21-30, but as countries moved to reopen, the number of coronavirus cases spiked, raising doubts about whether ESL One Cologne would come too soon for it to be a LAN event.

The restructuring will see ESL One Cologne split into four regional divisions — Europe, North America Asia and Oceania — with a combined $500,000 prize pool. The remaining $500,000 that had been allocated to the German event will be redistributed equally to next year's IEM Katowice and ESL One Cologne tournaments.

The revamped ESL One Cologne tournaments will be held from August 18-30 and will provide the highest ESL Pro Tour points value. However, they will not count as an ESL Pro Tour Masters Championship event and will not be taken into consideration for Intel Grand Slam Season 3, which has been put on hold for the time being.

The following teams will compete in the ESL One Cologne regional divisions:

Europe ($325,000 prize pool):

North America ($135,000 prize pool):

Asia ($20,000 prize pool):

China TYLOO
Asia TBD
Asia TBD
Asia TBD

Oceania ($20,000 prize pool):

Asia TBD
Asia TBD

ESL has not given any updates about the status of ESL Pro League Season 12, which will kick off on September 2. In a June 8 announcement, the German company stated that it was monitoring the global health situation and that the 24-team tournament would be held in a studio environment if players were allowed to "travel safely without larget restrictions".

NO! Congratz to BIG for winning ESL Cologne 2020 😎👍

2020-07-18 11:10
Ofc, their own tournaments are jokes compared to European ones. For them it is just like missing ESL One Cologne, they won't get any prestige. Why do you think they give 20k of prize pool in Oceania/Asia instead of 325k ?
2020-07-19 00:10
As if one of the oceanic/asian teams would a significant share of the prize pool anyway? NA and EU tournaments are still stacked. Much better to have the tournament offline with everyone competing than LAN with half the teams missing and no audience anyway

He will return, he just didnt confirm when but glaive will be back when esl cologne starts, so there is high chance xyp9x to and the Astralis on gram said, just one more month until they are back...
2020-07-19 09:48
Ez for the onliners big. They will never win on Lan. And just f*ck the virus. The planet is to crowded anyway.
2020-07-17 11:24
Except big won their two lans and never had a chance to prove themselves against top teams... They haven't shown any indication that they'll be bad on Lan.
2020-07-17 11:53
I love big, I love Xantares. I know they will continue to do well, but they will have to prove their #1 status against astralis now. I expect a top 8 finish minimum, but man this tournament is stacked from top to bottom.

BIG 1 map lost on lan 2 lans won this year, check LAN rating of BIG players in 2020!
2020-07-16 23:19
What other LAN than Leipzig have they played this year? And that is a t3 event so who cares about rating or results.
2020-07-16 23:22
ok well they were ranked #46 at that time with a new roster, and they havent had another chance at a t1 on lan with their current roster, plus all ur talking about is if BIG had success on lan, doesnt matter which LAN or which tier, so what ur saying makes literally no sense, since LAN is LAN
2020-07-16 23:34
Yeah, guess we will see. But considering how important Xantates has been for them and the fact that he is the biggest o loner of all time, I’m not holding my breath for their first t1 LAN

Why can't they just gather everyone they can into gaming houses in Cologne, one for each team and play semi-lan, like LEC does in Berlin? This maybe a stupid argument, but still...

10 hours + 4 hours faze +3 hours CoL 17 hours in one day
2020-07-16 20:23
I can even play a BO3 then sleep/eat/chilling with teammates/relaxing, then play another bo3, but I am old, and Im not even close to be a pro.
2020-07-16 20:26
Vitality got a 15 minute break
2020-07-16 20:31
Then how its 17 hours with 2 bo3, tell me whats that "10 hours"
2020-07-16 20:34
Practice
2020-07-16 20:36
for sure they were wake up at 6.30. lul Every other teams play 2 bo3 in one day in any tournament. You are a retarded fanboy, good night.
2020-07-16 20:39
Do you only watch tier 3 or do you not know what a bo3 is
2020-07-16 20:42
They are supposed to have like 3 hour breaks between two BO3s played the same day, according to the CSPPA. Vitality got 1/4 hour, other teams got a longer break in most if not all other cases.

if they postpone to 2021 let it be the only major with 4 mil prize lol (jk it would be overkill ) I think they ll conduct the major online cause if they postpone to next year they definitely have yo increase prize pool or condict 3 majors next year

Idk how bad corona virus is within the CIS region, that's the reason I only said EU. I don't think it's as bad as Brazil and America so perhaps NaVi and maybe Spirit could be invited to take Liquid / EG / Furia's place.

Dont remove my comment because you cannot handle the truth admins. Its not my fault cs has become irrelevant, also not my fault your site gets less activity. Figuring out why my comment made your eyes fill with tears should instead be your first priority. You dont have to like everything you read or even agree with it. It was a pathetic act and you know it.
2020-07-16 18:41
“your site gets less activity“ lul
2020-07-17 00:06
Obviously a site about cs gets less activity when there is no lans and no hype. Even more true during this break from even online tournaments.
