The ESL Pro League Season 10 has brought a brand new team into the Intel Grand Slam season 3 rankings. Mousesports dominated FNATIC 3-0 in the grand final to win their first Masters level tournament since ESL One New York 2018.

The European mixed team beat a total of three teams on the Intel Grand Slam scoreboard with a 2-0 against Evil Geniuses in the first round of playoffs and a 2-1 against Astralis in the semi final.

Ever since Team Liquid won the second Intel Grand Slam no team has managed to win two Masters level tournaments. Liquid won Intel Extreme Masters Chicago, EG won ESL One New York, FNATIC won DreamHack Masters Malmoe and Astralis won IEM Beijing. All of the above teams are still in contention for the $1,000,000 prize.

A team needs to win four Masters level tournaments if one of them was a Championship ESL Pro Tour event. Otherwise a team needs to win six Masters tournaments to complete the Intel Grand Slam.

Team Liquid have the most narrow window to complete their Intel Grand Slam as they have five tournaments left. If they win IEM Katowice (a Masters Championship) in March 2020, they will need a further two Masters titles to do it.
