Prize money for the ESL Major Series, as always, is sponsored fully by the Electronic Sports League, except in games marked as sponsored by their publisher.
Counter-Strike 1.6 and other gamesCounter-Strike 1.6 is included in the Intel Extreme Masters. DotA and DoW2 are not coming back for season 7 due to the level of activity but may return when that increases again. If you don't see your favourite game in the list, help increase the level activity here on ESL and who knows next season it might be included.
Selecting the gamesWe have 3 types of games in the EMS, first there are the games with national qualifiers, 2nd type are the games with International qualifiers and last but not least we have publisher supported games. The latter are for now limited to one, Avalon Heroes, but in time that will increase. Selecting the none supported games is mainly based on the activity, performance and statistics of the game in the ESL.
More details?Details on how to qualify for Season VII in all games will come in the not too distant future!
More comingTomorrow we will release part two of this announcement, we are doing something special this season but we cannot give away too much for now. It may be an extra game, perhaps some extra prize money or maybe both? Stay tuned!
