In first part of 2020 CS:GO featured $6,98 millions in prizes
The coronavirus pandemic and the cancel or reschedule of LAN tournaments had a significant impact on the competitive scene in CS:GO, but the variety of online events allowed the game to remain in the lead roles and to play out $6.98 million over the past six months. With this indicator Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is second in the ranking of all esports disciplines. The data was provided by the analytical portal The Esports Observer.
Compared to last year, the total amount of prizes decreased. This is largely due to the cancellation of the first major of the season, which was postponed to November. Tournament organizers such as ESL, BLAST and Flashpoint provided significant support to the stage. Among the largest championships of the semester are IEM Katowice 2020 ($500,000), ESL Pro League Season 11 ($750,000), Flashpoint 1 ($1,000,000) and BLAST Premier Spring 2020 ($1,375,000).
The cs_summit 6 RMR tournament in Europe and North America is now coming to its conclusion, after which most of the teams' shooting gallery are leaving for the summer break. The closest major tournament will be ESL One Cologne 2020 with a prize pool of $1,000,000. It will run from August 21 to 30.
