Intel talked about eSports at its small conference at the E3 by announcing the establishment of a Grand Slam CSGO to $ 1 million in partnership with ESL . Beware, this is not the umpteenth league Counter-Strike Global Offensive , the Grand Slam is a detached cashprize, promised to the team that will succeed the feat of winning four events in a row within the circuit DreamHack / ESL.

The list of tournaments concerned has not been announced but the race to the million will start with the ESL One Cologne this summer. To give even more chillies to his Grand Slam, Intel also promises $ 100,000 to the team that will come to break the series of potential winners. It is a great initiative, a form of unprecedented competition for an ever-expanding discipline that could soon dislodge League of Legends from its eSport number 1 throne in the eyes of the general public.
