ESL has announced that the Intel Grand Slam (IGS) is receiving a third season, which will feature a stricter set of rules.

Teams will still claim the $1 million prize if they win four IGS-eligible tournaments hosted by ESL and DreamHack inside a span of ten events as long as at least one of those trophies came at a designated Masters level competition (for 2020 these tournaments will be IEM Katowice, ESL One Cologne and any potential Major run by either company). Otherwise, teams will require six tournament victories during a window of ten events to collect the cheque.

The changes come after a season which lasted just 144 days after Liquid won four events in a row, breaking Astralis' record from season one by 379 days.

If the new set of rules had been in place since the beginning, Astralis would have had to wait for their IEM Katowice Major victory to claim their $1 million cheque. Liquid, on the other hand, would have still won the prize when they did, at ESL One Cologne.

The third Intel Grand Slam season will kick off on Thursday at IEM Chicago, where Liquid will be looking to extend their hot streak and win their sixth Big Event trophy in a row. Three more IGS events have already been announced for 2019, none of which of a designated Masters level, and a potential fourth one, IEM Beijing, was teased by ESL in a recent promotional video.

The event schedule for the third Intel Grand Slam season currently looks as follows:
