Intel Extreme Masters Season X – San Jose (IEM San Jose for short) was a video game esports tournament occurring on November 21–22, 2015 in San Jose, California, US. It was the first tournament of 10th season of the Intel Extreme Masters and featured League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournaments. There was a combined $175,000 USD prize pool across both games. In the case of the latter it was the first Counter-Strike event an IEM since IEM Season VI in 2012. Mark Cuban and Brian Krzanich played a charity celebrity exhibition match of League of Legends benefiting The Cybersmile Foundation.[1]

France-based Team EnVyUs decided to withdraw from the Counter-Strike tournament because of flight delays resulting from security concerns following the November 2015 Paris attacks.[2][3]
