IEM Katowice 2021 to be played without an audience

The $1 million event is still planned as a LAN competition, hosted at a location in Europe.

ESL has confirmed that their first ESL Pro Tour Masters Championship event of next year, IEM Katowice 2021, won't be played out in a crowd-filled arena due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tournament organizer still plans to host the tournament, scheduled for February 16-28, as an "in-person competition" which will take place at an undisclosed location in Europe. However, ESL will revert to online play instead "should COVID-19 remain a major barrier to the safety of our talent, players and staff".

There will be no CS:GO action in the Spodek Arena this year

Last year's edition of IEM Katowice was the first CS:GO event to be affected by the coronavirus pandemic, seeing the playoffs of the tournament played out in an empty arena, where Natus Vincere lifted the trophy. Since then, ESL has hoped to return to LAN with ESL One Cologne and the IEM Global Challenge, but both events were ultimately reverted to online play.

IEM Katowice 2021 is a 24-team event with a $1,000,000 prize pool, which will award an Intel Grand Slam point and take place in the second part of February. Things will kick off with a play-in tournament (16-17 February), followed by a group stage (18-21 February), and finally, the playoffs (26-28 February), as the dates of the tournament remain unchanged.

Through the ESL Pro Tour points system and feeder tournaments, the following teams have been confirmed for the event:

Group stage:

Play-In:

Poland Illuminar
United States Chaos
Sweden fnatic
Brazil BOOM
China TYLOO

I did answer - BOOM is on the level of a team like Triumph and Triumph would get destroyed in EU just like BOOM would, simple as that Just because of their inflated ratings (which are like that because they play against SA MM teams) they won't beat anyone in EU lol

Dude, your wayyyyyy off about SA level. I'm going to write it again since you seem like you can't read and you still didn't answer that part "MIBR put a fight(and even won) against top 10 teams with 3 SA players, and these players got rekt by BOOM in every tournament they played lmao." You pairing them with Triumph seems like a bait seeing that when they were in NA were playing better and better when they got boltz. Just imagine how much of an upgrade was felps to xand, it's a shame that felps left the team before this team can prove what they can do. Reports are saying that fallen and fer are going to play with this roster in a new org, so let's see which team does better in Katowice.

With 3 SA players I'm referring to players who are/were playing in SA scene.The majority of MIBR were playing in Brasil and now they're winning against teams like OG, this players were getting rekt by boom. So you can't really tell me that BOOM has the level of Triumph, when even Yeah are playing toes to toes with them.

ah yes, fair enough but you can't say that because those players were on worse teams than MIBR is right now and MIBR is pretty scary rn, that's like saying boom would rekt coldzera if coldzera played in idk Havan Liberty or something lol

Rather than no audience, strict health protocol is way better..for example, only 35% of the seat are allowed to be sold, confirmed non reactive rdt test 3 days before the event , 10% price raise, compulsory standarized masks usage, etc. More revenue why not..its just feels empty lifting trophy and screaming by themselves

What do you think makes them rich? Wins do, how do you get wins? Get good players. If you want to be consistent winner, you want to keep your good players and not change rosters. Why change a roster with good players, with a lvl10 faceit player (that is a big risk). Most orgs dont like taking risks

u misread what i wrote........ i said COMPLETE new teams, fresh blood.... 5 new ones vs 5 others. NOT t1 teams replacing 1 or 2 players. look at ropz btw, he was a noname (from fpl), and got into mouz, why arent they doing this more often?? and instead of 1 player like ropz just create new 5 man lineups, i guess thats what NIP and ASTRALIS are looking for with the talent scouting program? ..theyre just too late with this tbh, cuz im sick of looking same ol same teams, it RLY gets boring after a while tbh. one time vita wins, then astra, then navi, ...keeps getting recycled gg

Oh bro theres MUCH more raw talent out there. Just cuz u dunno or dont see it doesnt mean its not out there... believe me.....
2020-12-14 20:37
It is not free to make a team, have setups, join tournaments and play competitive cs. Of course people could make teams of new names, and give it a go. But whats the point if they will potentially have negative outcomes both economically and performance (because with new players its never guaranteed that it will work out). It is just a big risk to take. And they play not to entertain, but to compete (doesnt matter what they (pros) say)

ye i know but life exists only of risks, how did these guys end up here, u think everyone's born a talent? no.. best solution would be if: - t1 teams ALL create 2 academy teams built from faceit/fpl/whatever talent scout, and slowly replace their head team with these new bloods, and current players go analyse/coaching role or whatever... give this 5-8months et voila, proper cs competitive scene again, and yes they have enuf money for this cuz these newbloods aint gonna ask 10k wages per month, theyre even happy with 1/10 of that wage tbh, its free money from gaming afterall

Reason why new players get chances in good teams is because of players boots or retirements or changing games. Grim, Bymas, oBo, S1mple himself was a stand in before. When people retired or changed teams or whatever, thats when the youngguns gets their chance. Bymas have a chance cuz of olofs retirement and later on Woxics desition to change team. Grim is playing just bcuz nitro changed to valorant. No teams want to change good players that work well and win throphies, with new unknown faces. Life exists for money nowadays, and many many people are greedy to have it all

I'd say delay it, kato is always the most electrifying, most competitive, best tournament of any esports of the year. Its sad but i guess its fair, at least its a lan and not online.

vaccine in EU is only for the vulnerable ppl. Most people within ranges of like 20-40 will not be getting vaccinated anytime soon.

and? by summer 50% will be vaccinated. not only will the vaccine prevent most deaths, but also help to create a herd immunity which will stop the virus from spreading too fast. also from this years experience we know the virus is weak during summer which will lead to just max 100 cases/day/country. in may-june corona will become another flu.
