THE RULES OF THE INTEL GRAND SLAM  

  • The Intel Grand Slam is completed by the first team that wins four IGS-eligible tournaments (currently selected Intel Extreme Masters, ESL One, ESL Pro League and DreamHack Masters events) inside a span of ten consecutive events.  If a team fails to attend an event, the event counts as a “no win” for the purposes of completing the IGS.  The list of eligible IGS events is available on the Intel Grand Slam website.
  • Results from the previous season of the Intel Grand Slam are not counted towards the current season of the Intel Grand Slam.
  • Teams are allowed to swap players between tournaments, but a core of the same three players has to win four finals together in order to be eligible for the Intel Grand Slam.
  • All prize money in the IGS (the main prize and the giant killer bonus) gets sent directly to the players that participated in the relevant finals.
  • Eligible players get a share in the prize money in proportion to their contribution to the IGS (counting only the relevant final matches).
  • If a player has left the team and competed in an IGS event for another team, he becomes ineligible for prize money.
  • If a team that is about to complete the IGS is stopped in the final of their potential 4th win, their opponents receive the $100,000 “giant killer bonus”.  The one exception to the rule is if a team denying the completion of the Intel Grand Slam completes it in the same final.
  • There is no limit to how many giant killer bonuses are paid out in a single Intel Grand Slam Season.
