The Intel Grand Slam in Season 3 can be completed by the first team to complete either of the two conditions below:
1. Winning four Masters level CSGO tournaments including one (or more) designated Masters level CSGO tournament inside a span of ten consecutive tournaments.
2. Winning six Masters level CSGO tournaments inside a span of ten consecutive events.
Masters level CSGO events are currently Intel Extreme Masters, ESL One, ESL Pro League and DreamHack Masters. Designated Masters level CSGO tournaments for 2020 are Intel Extreme Masters Katowice and ESL One Cologne. Any potential CSGO Major by ESL or DreamHack in the future would also be considered as having that status.
The list of eligible IGS Masters level events & championship level 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.
- If a player has left the team and competed in an IGS event for another team, he or she 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.
