ESL cancels China IEM

To the misfortune of Asian fans, China will be left without Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) international next December. ESL has announced the cancellation of the Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) that he planned to celebrate in the eastern country. The company has alluded to “the current situation of Covid-19 and the complexities of organizing an international competition.”

The cancellation of the IEM in China is a blow to the Asian CS:GO scene, which loses an opportunity to win a bigger claim. Recently the community called for improvements to the Regional Major Ranking (RMR) Asian: As much as he accepted not having more places available for the Majors, I didn’t see any logic in an RMR having only four teams compared to the 32 in Europe or the 16 in America. The last time China experienced an ESL tournament was in 2019, with the IEM in Beijing. Astralis was proclaimed champion with a 3-0 against 100 Thieves.

IEM China was to be held from December 6-11, but its cancellation has meant changes to the ESL schedule. To avoid coincidence with the BLAST Premier Fall Finalwhich will take place from January 23 to 27, the tournament organizer has decided to delay the 17th season of the ESL Pro League Conference. Additionally, ESL has expressed via Twitter that this will allow the Conference to be attached directly to the 17th EPL.

ESL has had to clarify on social networks that it has not yet organized what the dates of its competitions will be in 2023. The company has explained that it will soon reveal the calendar for next year. Therefore, the initial information about the holding of the IEM in Katowice next February is not yet confirmed. In the remainder of 2022 ESL continues with the 16th season of the EPL, which is together with the IEM Road to Rio and the Major de Rio one of his three pending main tournaments. Beyond the top competitions, the ESL Challenger in Rotterdam will be held in October. Movistar Riders will compete in the Netherlands after receiving a direct invitation.
