Incidentally, Intel Extreme Masters is going to be the subsequent stop in the Grand Slam competition of Intel.
The Grand Slam battle of Intel goes on
The Season 2 of the Intel Grand Slam has been picked up by none other than Team Liquid and it has done this within a record time which spanned as much as 144 days. In fact, this astounding and unbelievable achievement has compelled the hand of ESL, and it has succeeded in adjusting the rules and regulations just before the start of the Season 3 of Intel Grand Slam. Incidentally, this is going to consist of a number of events which are regarded somewhat more prestigious and respectful as compared to the others.
Team Liquid who is already at the forefront in this particular Season 3 of the championship has come across yet another success which they have attained at IEM Chicago, that immediately followed the ESL One Cologne where they were lucky enough to win that particular event and also in receiving the coveted gold bars along with a breathtaking cash prize of as many as $1,000,000.
Astralis in the quest of regaining their throne once again
One cannot deny the fact that the year 2018 is definitely considered to be the year belonging to the Astralis. It is a fact that Team Liquid has been referred to as the “Astralis of America” in spite of the fact that it has not succeeded in overcoming the team from Denmark on quite a few LAN final showdowns. Incidentally, during the very first season of the Intel Grand Slam, Astralis was fortunate enough to win the lucrative cash price of as many as $1 million. The team from Denmark is going to be offered adequate opportunity by IEM Beijing which will enable them to provide Team Liquid with a real scare.
As a matter of fact, it will be really wonderful and welcoming to have both these teams taking part in this event, and this applies particularly to the home crowd from Asia.
