Some of the world’s best CS:GO teams are set to clash once again at StarLadder’s StarSeries i-League Season 8.

Offering a $500,000 prize pool, StarSeries Season 8 will see sixteen teams fight through one of the most rigorous formats on the circuit to claim the lion’s share.

While the top two ranked teams in the world – Astralis and Team Liquid – are absent, StarSeries will give an opportunity for several other top teams to establish themselves as the top contender with that pair.

Both ESL One New York champions Evil Geniuses and DreamHack Masters Malmo champions Fnatic are in attendance, while the likes of Na’Vi, Vitality, Ninjas in Pyjamas and MIBR all get to show off their new rosters once again.

Format

The sixteen teams competing at StarLadder StarSeries Season 8 have been divided into two groups, each of which will feature a double elimination bracket. The top four teams from each bracket will advance to the playoffs.

The playoffs themselves feature another double elimination bracket, with the top four teams from the group stage starting in the upper bracket, and the next four teams starting in the lower bracket. All matches throughout the tournament will be best-of-threes.

Report: Valve cancel upcoming 2021 CSGO Major

CS:GO publishers Valve have scrapped plans for the game’s next Major tournament, which was set for May 2021, according to an email sent out to organizers.

According to a report from HLTV, the Major that was due to take place May 10-23 will no longer go ahead, presumably due to the global health crisis and travel restrictions, with Valve expecting impacts to still be felt in six months.

This was also why the previous Major, ESL One Rio 2020, which was meant to have taken place in September, was canceled. In the announcement from ESL, they stated “While Valve is currently not able to say when and how Majors will return, as soon as they do we’ll work to bring the Major to Rio.”

In the email to organizers, Valve explained their plans in more detail, including confirming a Major to be held in Europe later in 2021 has been agreed with a partner and venue.

CSGO Major in 2021

“We are still disentangling our prior commitments,” Valve said, “and currently have both a partner and an EU venue designated for a Major later in 2021.

“Assuming it makes sense to proceed, the event will take place October 25-November 7 with a potential play-in event October 23-24.”

The last Major was StarLadder Berlin, which concluded with Astralis’ victory in September 2019. That means that it could be a full two years since the previous Major before we see another. With plans for it to take place in Europe, it means that all of the last four Majors will have been held in the continent.

In the email sent to tournament organizers and obtained by HLTV, Valve added that it “doesn’t have any new information about the Regional Major Ranking (RMR)” system, but welcomed feedback from the recipients.

At least in the meantime, while there are no Majors, CS:GO just launched it’s new Operation, Broken Fang, after much anticipation, adding a wealth of new content and features.
