Welcoming their first ESL Pro League title at the Season 10 Finals in Odense, mousesports claimed the lion’s share of $600,000, earned a contributing victory to the Intel® Grand Slam Season 3 and boosted their standings in the ESL Pro Tour Road to Cologne arms race.
The ESL Pro Tour Road to Cologne rewards the eight highest rated teams by points and directly invites those worthy to the ESL One Cologne 2020 Masters Championship. Earlier in the year, Fnatic claimed the title at DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 and Astralis followed up with their own success at IEM Beijing 2019.
The stellar Danes currently lead the standings, followed by Fnatic, mousesports and Natus Vincere. Team Vitality, 100 Thieves, Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid complete the current Top 8.
The journey continues
Mousesports not only lifted the trophy and took home a respectable coin purse following their victory at the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals, they’ve also been directly invited to IEM Katowice 2020, which will also contribute towards the Road to Cologne. With this being said, teams have more opportunities to increase their points in the standings with the Challenger events of DreamHack Open Annaheim 2019 and Leipzig 2019 on the horizon as we close out the year. You can expect fierce competition as teams compete in order to qualify for the Cathedral of Counter-Strike in 2020.
