Overview[edit]

The Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) is ESL's flagship competition sponsored by Intel. IEM is a huge tournament series spanning across many months and individual competitions that will ultimately be culminated in the Global Championships. Each year the games which are played changes. The first season to incorporate StarCraft 2 was Season V and due to its huge success, it was picked up again in Season VI. Tournaments involved in the IEM range from small online qualifiers with $100 prizes to massive live events giving away upwards of 5 figure cash prizes to the winners of said major events. It should be noted that not every event includes StarCraft 2 but for this article, only the StarCraft 2 portion of events will be mentioned.
