Posted 6th December 2019 By: Marv    275 Views
After pitting 16 North American and European teams against each other, ESL Pro League Season 10 is finally near to its conclusion. The final battle has been set, and we’ll see the six remaining teams vying for the title and the lion’s share of the $600,000 USD prize pool at Jyske Bank Arena in Odense, Denmark.
ESL Pro League will crown its new winner this weekend. But before that, Team Liquid, Fnatic, Evil Geniuses, Mousesports, Natus Vincere, and Astralis still need to defend their positions until grand finals. The 6 competing teams need to pass the playoff rounds with single-elimination bracket matches, quarterfinals, and semifinals. The last two stages are in BO3, while the grand final is in BO5.
The top three teams from the group stages will have an early advantage in the playoffs. From the original 16, the three automatically jumped to the next stages of the competition.
The winner went straight to the semifinals, while the two runner-ups advanced to the quarterfinals as high seeds and low seeds. In this case, we have Natus Vincere and Astralis as the leading teams set to compete on December 7 against the winners of the two matchups on Saturday.
The winner of the finals will take home the title and the $250,000 prize money from ESL and ESEA. What’s more, the team will secure a spot in IEM Katowice 2020 and collect their points for Intel Grand Slam Season 3. This is a crucial match for Team Liquid, Astralis, Evil Geniuses, and Fnatic—the top 4 contenders with the highest IGS points at the time of writing. It’s worth noting, however, that mousesports and Natus Vincere are part of the top 10 of HLTV.org’s CS:GO world rankings, so they won’t go down without a place.
