Intel Extreme Masters World Championship


Cologne is set to be 300x larger than Edmonton's Championship.

6 months and 3 continents of action are about to wrap up in Cologne, Germany, for the Intel Extreme Masters ((Electronic Sports League) ESL), with a final pot totaling $170,000.

The competition is to take place during CeBIT 2010: the world’s largest trade fair for digital IT and communication solutions which managed to attract over 400,000 visitors and 4,300 exhibitors in 2009.

Gamers from around the globe will once again be drawn to the ring to battle till death in the very PC-centric gaming finale. The competition will duel digitally in Counter-Strike 1.6, World of Warcraft and Quake-Live.

Aside from a chief gaming competition, visitors will also be treated to a bevy of gaming culture, including kiosks of Guitar Hero to hardcore PC demo’s. When the ESL invaded Edmonton, Canada, they had James Cameron’s Avatar running. But not in 3D. So… that was great.

Intel Gaming Hall at CeBIT 2010 takes place in hall 23 from March 2nd to 6th 2010.
