World class Counter-Strike returns to the big apple this fall. On the 29th to 30th of September, Brooklyn will rumble with the roars of thousands of esports fans as ESL One makes its third annual visit to Barclays Center. Over the course of this weekend, $250,000 in cold hard cash, an Intel Grand Slam win, and the ESL One title will be awarded to one of the world’s 8 best CS:GO teams.
You’ve watched CS:GO streams before, but like Rank G, there’s still a level above. Imagine that feeling you get when you watch a highlight live on stream. Imagine sharing that excitement with 10,000 other people. Imagine that excitement being the soundtrack to the event for hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world. You can rub shoulders with the pros and talent you’ve seen on screen time and time again, meet new friends from all over the world who share the same passion you do, participate in all the activities that make a live esports event more than just a video feed. That’s what live esports is like, that’s what ESL One New York is like. You don’t want to miss this.
If you think you’re the biggest CS:GO fan out there, you’ll have to come out and prove it. People from every corner of the planet, of any race, gender, age, religion, and walk of life are all descending on Barclays Center to prove that they’ve got the most passion for the game. Each and every one of them will come together in the arena as a crowd and blow the minds and eardums of anyone paying attention. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can neither be created or destroyed, so convert your excitement into noise and hear it echo through the CS:GO history books forever.
New York and esports are no strangers to each other. For over a decade, the city has played host to regional, national, and international competitions across a massive number of game titles. Brands like IEM and WCG have stopped here, and ESL One is proud to return year after year. We’re already a part of esports history, with your help we make ESL One New York more than just another event in the calendar.
Everyone wants to see their favorite team win it all, but there can only be one. This year there are three prizes at stake for any would-be champions: the Intel Grand Slam title leading towards a possible million dollar prize, a majority share of the $300,000 prize pool, and finally, the ESL One New York title. Virtus.pro fell to Na`Vi pursuing this trophy and have been silent since. FaZe kicked off a streak of top tournament placements off the back of their ESL One New York win. What story will we see emerge from this years’ victor?
