ESL ESEA Pro League S2 teams list*
Last week saw the final North American matches of ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 peter out and we now have a complete teams list for the $250,000 finals in Burbank, California.
Taking place between December 10-13 and offering $250,000 to eight teams, the ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 finals follow up on the back of a two region, 24-team season which itself portioned out another $250,000 to all competitors involved.
The location for the offline finals is in ESL's studios in Burbank, California, a city about twelve miles north-west of downtown Los Angeles.
Liquid were top seed in the North American region
With the European division finishing earlier, and handing out $125,000 to all twelve European teams, it was ultimately TSM, fnatic, EnVyUs, and Na`Vi who qualified for the offline finals.
In North America, although Team Liquid and Luminosity were already shoe-ins to the tournament with stellar online records, it was still up in the air for which North American team would fill the third and fourth seeded spots.
Following last week's games, it emerged that it would be Conquest and CLG who claimed the final two spots and who would travel to Burbank to compete for $250,000. Final standings for the North American division are therefore:
1. Liquid - $18,000
2. Luminosity - $16,500
3. Conquest - $15,000
4. CLG - $13,500
5. compLexity - $13,000
6. Cloud9 - $11,500
7. 3sUP - $10,000
8. Enemy - $8,500
9. SKDC - $6,200 ($800 penalty for one Forfeited match)
10. Method - $5,500
11. Winterfox - $4,000
12. Coast (team died mid-season and receive no money) - $0
The overall list of competitors for the event is:
More information about the event, such as a casters list and a broadcasting schedule, is still forthcoming.
It is also worth keeping in mind that, following FACEIT Stage 3's conclusion, fragbite Masters Season 5, and the passage of a few smaller tournaments, the ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 finals will be the last offline event of 2015 and mark the beginning of a fairly long hiatus in CS:GO events until the second weekend of January 2016.
