Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is getting an ESL league system with $50,000 prize pool


ESL is finally implementing a league system for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with $50,000 on the line per season. Each season will feature three different competitive leagues: the ESL Pro League, the ESL Major League, and the ESL Open League. This system is very similar to what other eSports games have but I’ll give you a quick rundown in case you’re not familiar with it. The Pro League will consist of the absolute best sixteen Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams who will get to duke it out for a large chunk of the prize pool – no less than $48,000. Out of the sixteen teams, eight will be invited by the Electronic Sports League while the other eight will be decided through various qualifiers.

Next off, we have the Major League, which is comprised of 32 semi-pro Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams that will compete for the remaining prize pool consisting of $2,000. There are no ESL invitations here, so all the teams that want to make it to the Major League must qualify via several qualifiers. Aside from prize money, there is something more at stake here as the top four teams from this league will get to advance to the Pro League. As for the Open League, ESL says that it will be open for anyone who wants to participate, which means that all the interested Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams will just have to sign up and they’re in. There is no prize money here, but the top teams will get to advanced to the Major League and play with the big boys there.

The first Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ESL season kicks off on December 3rd, but the qualifiers are just around the corner and will begin this Saturday, November 8th. The league system will only be available in Europe for now as this is where the game is the most popular. However, we can safely assume that it will arrive in other regions as well if it ends up being successful. For more information on the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ESL league visit this page.

5 More Killer Firefox Addons for Designers

If you compare the way you use your computer today with how you used it, let’s say 10 years ago, you will probably notice a big difference, even if you essentially still do the same tasks with it. Applications replace Software and Add-Ons replace Stand Alone Programs.

It’s obvious, we are doing a majority of our work in our browser. Even designers can utilize free photoshop alternatives which are completely web based, without ever leaving their beloved browser. Extensions and Add-Ons enhance this experience also, by turning your web browser into a real hub. Mozilla Firefox is one of the browsers which can offer you very powerful assets of tools, if it’s used right.

Whether if it’s Web Design, UX, UI, Typography or anything else; some of Mozilla’s Firefox Web Browser’s strong points lie in it’s broad selection of available add-ons. Apart from the must have add-ons as the Web Developer Toolbar by Chris Pederick , and Firebug by Joe Hewitt, there are a lot of other little tools which ca…

Taylor Swift Unhappy After Princeton Review Misquotes Her Lyrics in SAT Test Paper

The popstar of several multi-million dollar hits and multi-million dollarlegs, Taylor Swift is not one to be messed with. The Princeton Review found that out the hard way after they published Tay Tay's lyrics as an example of bad grammar on a SAT practice test.

To be fair, they were trying to make the point that pop songs are where grammar goes to die and also cited other pop singers such as Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Kesha.

The fiercely loyal Tay Tay fans were not likely to let this go by and Tumblr user Nava who was apparently having ' an amazing time studying for SAT' when she spotted this, posted a snapshot with the caption, " .... it isn't a pop song it's a country pop song so take that Princeton review Taylor is grammar queen so shhhhhh.."

Unluckily for the Princeton Review however they misquoted the lyrics of the song Fifteen. The question paper wanted students to grammatically correct, "Somebody tells you they love you, …

Jessica Lange Is Definitely Done With American Horror Story But Look Who's Checking in...

Good news and bad news, American Horror Story fans.

Queen Jessica Lange confirmed at tonight's PaleyFest panel that she will not return for American Horror Story: Hotel.

"Yes, I'm done," she told the audience, "We've had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I've had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I've loved the writers, my actors, Ryan and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in new orleans, the stories, everything."

While that is definitely not music to our ears, the panel did offer up a few happier Hotel tidbits, like the fact that White Collar star Matt Bomer will be joining the show for the season, along with 30 Rock star Cheyenne Jackson. Both Bomer and Jackson are pretty familiar with Ryan Murphy and co, having both guest starred on Glee. Bomer also appeared in American Horror Story: Freak Show as a prostitute who was brutally murdered by Dandy (Finn Witrock).
