IEM6 WC prizes announced

With the event just one week from its kick off date, the prize distribution for the IEM6 World Championship featuring a $100,000 prize purse has been announced.

The prize purse of $100,000 was already announced earlier, but the prize distribution itself wasn't made available until today. As usual with ESL's Intel Extreme Masters, every placing receives prize money.


Who will get the heftiest check of 2012? 

Tournament format is similar to the past few years as twelve teams are split into two groups of six, winners will advance directly to semi finals while the second and third placers will play teams from the other group in the quarter finals.

Prize distribution:

1. $50,000
2. $20,000
3. $8,000
4. $3,800
5-6. $2,800
5-6. $2,800
7-8. $2,200
7-8. $2,200
9-10. $2,100
9-10. $2,100
11-12. $2,000
11-12. $2,000

IEM6 World Championships will take place on March 6-10 at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany. Our preview articles and interviews for the event will come out soon, and HLTV.org will be on-site to provide you with full coverage of the event. 

Nice

agree, the 100$ difference (20$ each) between 5th or 6th place should be bigger to ensure that even teams who have no chance to go to the playoffs will still fight for a bit more prize money.

2012-02-29 16:26
Money for every team is , eh, they should scrap 7th and lower and put that $12,500 to the top 6 mainly 3rd 4th and 5th. The difference from coming dead last to coming 5th and even 4th in this tourney money wise is "who cares" yet its still a fairly good achievement considering the teams going.

If ESL wouldn't pay the money, team wouldn't play. So it's just stupid to say that. They paying it out later, but at least the teams get the money. So i don't see a problem here ;)

awesome prizes, so nice to see 50k back over 35k. i really wish the tournament format allowed for more games though, with more teams going through to playoffs. Having 2 teams go from groups to semifinals is just dumb in my opinion, and then just having 2 relegation games, and you are down to 4 teams, the semi finals. Watching sc2 again this past weekend, and just having 3 days straight of game after game after game, it makes me super envious, and even more annoyed that ESL doesn't think this through more. The only thing i could see stopping them, is either ignorance or greed, in that they want to make sure they can show almost every game on ESLtv (they only choose to hire 2 CS announcers for the whole event, thus limiting the games ESLtv can cover) and so they choose this format so there are only 5 playoff games (including relegation) so they can cover them all without giving out any hltv's. Maybe they don't want to change the format, since they would ultimately have to let more games be played NOT on stage, and would have to give out HLTVs? tl;dr - Love the prizes, the format needs changing!
2012-02-29 20:24
So will ESL pay out the prizes in after two years like they usually do?
2012-02-29 20:34
Woohoo, perfect prizes!
