Major CS:GO tournament organizers meeting in response to possible 'super league'
Members of some of the biggest tournament organizers in esports are meeting in Bucharest, Romania during this weekend's DreamHack event to formulate a response to a possible Counter-Strike: Global Offensive super league.
Discussions between ESL, fantasy esports website Vulcun, and streaming platform Twitch, along with representatives of multiple top-tier Counter-Strike teams, were first revealed by joint reports in the Daily Dot and HLTV on April 10. The meeting, which was held at the Twitch offices in San Francisco, centered on a proposal to create a tournament similar to Riot’s League of Legends League Championship Series.
Both the ESL's Michal "Carmac" Blicharz Vulcun denied that any league would lock teams into exclusive contracts that would bar them from taking part in other tournaments.
