BY Andrew Miesner / June 29, 2011

Today the ESL (Electronic Sports League) announced that it will be holding IEM 6 at Germany’s GamesCom convention which runs from August 17th through the 21st. With a $53,000 prize purse split between its StarCraft II and League of Legends tournament, you can be sure the world’s best progamers will be competing. To add a bit more weight to the tournament, the winners will be granted a seat for the World Championships at the end of the season.

Michal Blicharz, Director of Pro Leagues at Turtle Entertainment, stated:


Last year’s Intel Extreme Masters at gamescom was one of the best events we have ever had. We are thrilled to be coming back and we have every intention of making this year’s event even better for the swarm of fans in the hall and on the streams.


Last year’s IEM 5 saw some amazing games with MorroW beating IdrA for the championship. With an increased prize pool, you can bet that this year’s IEM will see some fierce competition.
