gamescom 2019 is right around the corner, and this year ESL will as usual be setting up camp at the prestigious convention for video games and esports. As is tradition a wide variety of esport tournaments will be organised and broadcasted from the venue, including games such as League of Legends, CS GO and more.
Ever since ESL’s inception, we’ve kept a saying close to our heart; ‘everybody can be somebody’. The beauty of esports is that no matter your background, you have a chance at making it big and becoming a global icon, whether that be in well established games such as Dota 2 and CSGO, or new and upcoming mobile games. Whilst only the best can make it to the top, there is no barrier to entry, making the playing field level and equal for everyone.
Players and teams from around the world competed in a variety of games at the prestigious Spodek Arena in Katowice, Poland for a total prize pool of $2.5 million. Over 174,000 fans came to enjoy Dota 2, CS:GO, StarCraft 2, Fortnite and other games, as well as the world’s largest esports-themed trade show, the IEM Expo.
