ESL confirms IEM season 5

The Electronic Sports League has confirmed that season five of the Intel Extreme Masters is already in the making.

The announcement was made by George Woo, marketing manager for Intel Corporation, during the Counter-Strike prize ceremony of the Intel Extreme Masters 4 World Championship this afternoon, in Hannover.

"We are going to have season five," he said. "Look forward to seeing you guys out there following us for another great season."

Despite the confirmation of a new Intel Extreme Masters season, no more info has been released by the ESL of yet.

The fourth Intel Extreme Masters season, which came to an end today, featured a total prize purse of $500,000 and events in three different continents.

Dunno,why everybody hate those Thorins stream?that's just u don't have premium account?As for me ESL stream is quiet comfortable and I enjoyed that much,cause I could see team healthbar,their ammunition,their ingame positions and their reactions Anyhow,thanks to ESL for anything,waiting for one more good and exciting season =)
