ROCKET LEAGUE, CS:GO AND MORE!
It’s already July and heatwaves are scorching the Earth everywhere! The heat’s also turning up with regards to esports, as many scenes are progressing their way to ending their competitive seasons with their largest events yet! Just like other weeks, we’ve taken the opportunity to let you know what’s going on in the international world of esports this weekend:
DREAMHACK PRO CIRCUIT: VALENCIA 2019
Our first Rocket League event in an article of this type, DreamHack Valencia 2019 forms part of the four Pro Circuit Major Events for the season; serving as the third. With $100,000 on the line, 32 qualified rosters of three players each will be part-taking in two days of group play across 4 groups concluding with Single-Elimination Playoffs on Sunday. The number of teams will be skimmed down each day starting from Thursday, until one team will be left with $50,000 at the end of the weekend!
To be streamed this weekend on Twitch, we highly recommend the event for all of those who enjoy Rocket League, Sport Simulators or simply the idea of cars playing football!
ESL One: cologne
A must-watch for the CS:GO community, ESL One: Cologne 2019 involves incredibly high stakes. Commemorating its sixth anniversary, the event remains unchanged; 16 of the best CS:GO teams in the world competing for the majority of $300,000. The international Major, however, has so much more on the line than it already does.
Something we hinted at two weeks ago in an article was the looming Intel Grand Slam prize since Team Liquid was looking to rack up their third eligible contributing win at the ESL Pro League Season 9 – Finals. Having accomplished this, they’re one win away from claiming this season’s Grand Slam rather early.
What does this mean? At Cologne, should Team Liquid reach the grand finals this weekend, they’ve got the chance to claim $1,000,000 of prize sent straight to the players. It also means that any opposing team in the grand final who stops them, receives $100,000! If Team Liquid’s in the grand final, expect the highest level of CS:GO!
This will all potentially occur following the usual group and bracket play viewable here; still cannot help but crave the idea!
To conclude; we hope you enjoy the Rocket League and CS:GO events this weekend. Also to note, last week’s article discussed the speedrunning fundraiser of SDGQ 2019 – we can happily announce that it raised over $3 million worth of funds!
