ELEAGUE playoff bracket set

After four weeks of play in Atlanta, the eight teams having made it to ELEAGUE Season 2's playoffs have been placed into the brackets.

Eight teams will fight for the bulk of $1,100,000 at the ELEAGUE Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, where our Season 2 winners will be found. With only a handful of teams left, a new champion will be crowned on December 3 putting behind us 44 days of top level offline competition.


Virtus.pro will be looking to defend their title in Atlanta

After Group D's Dignitas and OpTic picked up the last two spots into the playoffs, the brackets have been drawn. Here are the match-ups:

Denmark Dignitas vs. Brazil SK
Denmark Astralis vs. Sweden NiP
Europe mousesports vs. North America OpTic
Poland Virtus.pro vs. Europe FaZe

The playoffs will kick-off on November 30 with the quarterfinal matches. The winners will move on to the semifinals on December 2 before our new ELEAGUE champions are crowned after the grand final, which will take place on December 3.

interesting bracket. optic losing to fnatic the first match was a ruse to avoid sk early on(or rather getting mouz first) sk and dignitas facing each other first will be nice. getting rid of one of them this early on will help optic immensely. getting by mouz should be a walk in the park. if faze takes down vp no reason for optic to not win it all. the only real threat for them is vp atm. they wont be facing either sk or dignitas til the finals. optic will be a top 3 team by the end of the year.

yes sure :) because they won against envy in bad form for quiet some time now and fanatic without dennis recently changed players again and playing with the coach. Maybe Optic beats Mouz but TOP 3 dont fool yourself.

old FaZe and G2/Kinguin this is new FaZe, they have strats now VP don't like to play against pug style teams so they kinda struggled against them on lan, VP won all of their recent games against FaZe but new FaZe looked scary in the groupstage

If VP win with FaZe, I don't think there is any team that can stop them. They will stomp Optic / mouz and grand finals will be against a team they are prepared for.

True reality checks for Dignitas and FaZe. Bo3 against t1 teams. OpTic to beat mouz. Astralis and NiP is pretty 50/50.

lmao why r u puttin dignitas and faze in the same basket when dignitas won a tier1 event beating VP,NaVi,Fnatic while all FaZe has done is win a couple of bo1s

Dignitas is definitely top 4 team right now but I think his point is that dignitas wasn't an anti-strat target for any of tier 1 teams and that's why they had a good streak. Now VP for example will be prepared for dignitas, take them seriously.

2016-11-19 22:25
Why is Astralis and SK able to meet in semis when the came from the same group, and the same with mouse and Faze?? A bit weird that in the one bracket there is not a team from Group A, and in the second bracket there i not a team from Group C.

I think i figured out the draw Winner of D (Dig) vs 2nd of C (SK) Winner of C (Ast) vs 2nd of B (NiP) ----------------------- Winner of B (VP) vs 2nd of A (FaZe) Winner of A (Mouz) vs 2nd of D (OpTic) ^^^These 2 games can be swapped around and there is no difference So the group winner plays the second place of the group on the left of it.
2016-11-20 02:33
vp vs faze, wtf haha this match is ez vp ;p

Not really. It's actually the hardest match up they could have had.
2016-11-19 22:34
65%-35% as i understand it will always be banned only DUST2 (here vp) the teams on the map bo3 Nuke Overpass/Mirage Cobblestobne/Train here's my opinion...
2016-11-19 22:38
VP as a team have traditionally always lost to Faze even when Faze is worse than them overall. It is weird.
2016-11-20 12:07
Dignitas vs SK will be such a good matchup,they both perma veto cache and if diggy is smart they'll veto train and let SK veto cache,gl dig & magisk

Their other maps are decent except Nuke. If SK can fix Nuke (which TACO's interview suggests they're doing), I don't see Dignitas stealing even a single map.

They won't play Train or Cache. Nuke goes to dignitas, Dust2 probably to SK, but you're forgetting that dignitas is strong on Overpass, Cobble and Mirage. It will be really close.

Dis is gunna be good. Except for Mousesport, these are the most in form teams. Sapphire and Prius as observers. Thorin and Moses on the desk. DDK duo, Semmler and Anders as commentators. Quality production of e-lague. Big fucking prize pool. This is the tournament of the year. So many contenders for the win.

That means with 27 comments in the bank and this will be my 28 I'll dropping comments the next 22 minutes since I need exactly 50 comments to be able to post blogs //Cheers my fellow CSGO-lover At this point I've called a few for CSGO-lovers alot of mistresses I hope noone is offended, I like to talk around. It is weird, I know. You will get over it, hopefully, sincerely forever yours And yes I am using my mobile timer to post exactly when I am able to.
