A few days ago the American eSports portal GotFrag.com published an interview with Baschi, Chief Tournament Director of the Electronic Sports League. The interview is about the first Extreme Masters season.
More and more details about the first Extreme Masters season are becoming clear. Yesterday the drawing of the first qualification round was broadcast by GIGA and today we can publish the prize money distribution for the first season.
There are two pools with players and teams, each with 12 names. For each match a team from the first and second pool will be drawn. This is the first step for some teams to qualify for the 160,000 Euro (about 205,000 US-Dollar) competition.
On September 9 at 9 am CET the first Swedish Extreme Masters LAN qualifier will be held at Gamers Paradise, Stockholm. The second LAN qualifier will be held next weekend, starting on September 16. The winners of the qualifiers will advance to the Extreme Masters main event. The first Swedish spot was won by SK.swe during the Games Convetion in Leipzig the other week. Who will join them?
The signup process for the national finals of the 160,000 Euro Extreme Masters is in full swing. In a number of countries teams and players can sign up for their country's national qualifier. Now we can give you further information about the schedule for the Extreme Masters qualification. Please read carefully if you want to participate!
Finally, the qualification for the Extreme Masters by ESL has been opened. It is the right time to further explain how a CS team or a WC3 player can qualify for the Extreme Masters. To guarantee the best lineup of participants possible, we have setup an application mode that we would like to present to you.
