Invites for ECS unveiled

The organisers of the Esports Championship Series (ECS) have unveiled the list of teams who have been invited to compete in the debut season of the league

Earlier this week, FACEIT and streaming platform Twitch joined forces and launched their own Counter-Strike league, called the Esports Championship Series, featuring 20 teams, 10 from Europe and 10 from North America.

With $3.5 million at stake, the ECS will compete with other tournaments like the ESL Pro League and the ELEAGUE, setting itself apart from the rest, however, by the fact that it is the very first championship to offer co-ownership to the competing sides, just like it happens in many traditional sports leagues.


Invites for ECS have been revealed 

The debut season of the ECS will kick off on Sunday, with all matches being streamed live on FACEIT's Twitch channel. The list of participants is still missing one team per region as the qualifiers have not yet come to a close.

Below you can find the confirmed teams for the first season of the Esports Championship Series:

Europe North America
Denmark Astralis United States Cloud9
Denmark Dignitas United States Complexity
France Envy United States CLG
Europe FaZe United States TSM
Sweden fnatic Brazil Luminosity
Poland Virtus.pro United States NRG
CIS Natus Vincere Canada OpTic
Sweden NiP United States Liquid
Germany mousesports (qualified) United States Echo Fox (qualified)
France G2 (qualified) North America TBD

The full schedule for the ECS can be found on the league's official website.

2016-04-09 21:52
As long as they keep getting out of groups in majors.. Easy sticker money. Once they fail to qualify for majors then they can think of disband.

This is fucked lol, at the VERY LEAST Tempo Storm is #8 NA (at their worst). Only teams I can say with confidence are better than them are Liquid, LG, CLG. Optic might be a little better, might be a little worse. TS deserves the spot over like, 4 of those teams. And how is Selfless not in? I know they lost to Obey, but they've been much better than fkn TSM and CoL. Who the fuck did these invites?

they also didn't reiceve invite to play qualifiers.. I just can't understand their logic
2016-04-09 18:18
It's becuase ECS invited the teams based on how big their org is. Since both RNG and TS have small orgs, they were left out. Pretty unfair.
2016-04-09 20:24
#245
felps | 
Brazil Fr4m3 
also Selfless didn't receive.. all of these teams are better than TSM, coL and NRG (this last one also have a small org).. maybe they just wanna the maximum NA teams as possible..
2016-04-09 20:26
NRG isn't that small, since they are getting more "Known" as long as they have a LoL team in the LCS. Although, it's just people shitting about the quality and only thinking about $$

NRG and EchoFox are owned/partly-owned by NBA ex-players so they need a hype to let them into their talk show to advocate for esports maybe. Idk how the fukk is this right? Should be about the game. TS is literally within top4 of NA, but didn't even get a chance to qualify. Some corruption going on over there
2016-04-09 21:41

they receive a invite 3 days before their bootcamp, what makes impossible their cancel everything to play the qualifier.. they also didn't permit them to play the qualifier in Sweeden (This I can't understand why).. Anyway, completely ridiculous

Then the guy who is in charge of scheduling is a dumb ass fukked up donkey I guess, no other words to describe that. Even a 1.5 GPA 2-nd year bachelor of shitty university has a better sense in time management. This kinds of leagues are not spontaneous for sure, so why not to manage a good qualifier schedule like 2 months beforehand to let every decent team to have a chance to compete. Instead let's put shit-tier TSM, NRG and CoL who literally suck as hard as the hooker with 10 years of experience

Literally everywhere. No chance for F3, Godsent or E-frag. Dignitas direct invite over Mouz or G2. No OCE spots for PGL minor in Seoul, shitty NA invites. Idk who is in charge for invites, but that guy(s) should be fired lol
2016-04-09 21:54
tempo did receive the invite for the qualifiers, but 4 days before their trip to europe. the qualify happened while they where there, and the league did not allow tempo to play on high ping. :/

2016-04-09 18:26
its funny that most of the teams invited for EU are top10 in the world and most of the teams invited for NA are not even top20
2016-04-09 18:27
And Tempo Storm 14# in the world was not invited...
2016-04-09 19:50
yep, pretty unfair, also F3 didn even get a chance to qualify and I think some other teams on F3 lvl aswell
2016-04-09 20:39
that's because they send the same number of invites for both continent , EU should have +4 slot than NA , i never understood why NA had so many invites when EU is clearly better and have more team who could compete instead of NA trash top200.

So either G2 or Gambit will qualify on the EU side and Selfless or Obey will qualify for NA. I've got to say it really is bs that Tempo Storm didn't get invited to this league. I have no idea how TSM or compLexity got invited over them. They didn't even get a shot in the qualifier. TS should be in this.

Selfless is playing in the second qualifiers finals tonight vs Obey Alliance, and Tempo Storm (apparently) received a spot in the qualifiers, but couldn't participate in them as they are bootcamping in Sweden for Malmo while the qualifiers were going on but they should've been directly invited either way

I can see them not inviting RNG, but coL, TSM and NRG over Tempo Storm? Really? REALLY? NA get a lot more attention then they deserve. Faceit used to be way more fair awarding spots to their leagues/tournaments. Giving NA the same amount of spots pretty much says that NA and EU are on equal terms talent ways, that is kinda discriminatory towards better players, not getting to play just cuz they were not born in the right place, that is some straight up bullshit right there. Great job Faceit, just give free money to shit NA teams. EDIT: I was wrong on the qualifier part, NVM

Murica logic: t1 NA teams always get raped by t1 EU teams, so let's fucking invite t2 NA teams "CUZ AMURIKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
2016-04-10 12:59
10USA - 10EU is a bit too much. Everyone in esport knows that 1:1 is not very realistic, since there are not enough NA teams which deserve a spot among the big 10. Most of them are not even Top 20 in the world rankings. Many of the invited teams worked for years before they had the chance for this, and all of a sudden an orga of famous superstars with money is chosen to attend instead...I don't understand this.

Why wasn't RNG given chance to qualify? Did they want Echo Fox to have an easier run so they more viewers due to popular players?
2016-04-10 14:06
They SHOULD have been invited over coL, TSM, maybe NRG. They'd probably have made the qualifier aswell
2016-04-10 15:44
apparently they got invited to the quals 3 days b4 they had to leave to go to Aus to fix up their visas

Sounds like a well-planned enterprise, three whole days before!?

No Tempo Storm or Renegades? April 1st was almost two weeks ago, Faceit.
2016-04-10 14:46
My thoughts exactly. Wouldn't imagine they'd be in the top 3 or so, but they deserve the spot more than many in the NA row

If you live in Na start a cs team and you will get invited to everything right away. Don't need to be good or deserve it.
