IEM Katowice 2024 will be held over February 8-11 with a $500,000 total prize pool (the same as IEM Katowice 2023). The round-of-36 play-in stage has been removed, while the 24-player main event portion will return in the same familiar format. A combination of seeds and qualifiers will be used to decide the 24 main event players. Ticket sales for IEM Katowice's StarCraft 2 tournament will open on Wednesday, Nov 15 3:00pm GMT (GMT+00:00).
ESL also announced that a major EPT tournament will be held at DreamHack Dallas during May 31-June 2, but did not reveal any additional details.
The official announcement also alludes to a subsequent "world championship" event after DreamHack Dallas.
The journey to the EPT World Championship will continue with an additional ESL SC2 Masters season concluding at DreamHack Dallas, taking place from May 31 to June 2.
