ECS S2 Finals team list determined

The european division of ECS Season 2 have come to a close and the four teams qualifying for the finals in Anaheim are Astralis, EnVyUs, FaZe and dignitas.

The last matchday of the ECS EU league have played out, leaving six teams with a 8-10 scoreline, all being tied for the fourth and final spot for the finals. Overall round difference determines tied teams, which means Dignitas are the ones travelling to California in two weeks time.

Also notable is the fact that Astralis managed to win their remaining 10 encounters after initially sitting on a 3-5 scoreline in the table, so the Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander-led Danes take first seed along with SK.


dignitas qualify with the smallest of margins, thanks to six more rounds overall than G2

The eight teams that have qualified for the finals are:

Brazil SK United States Cloud9 Brazil Immortals North America OpTic
Denmark Astralis France Envy Europe FaZe Denmark Dignitas

The ECS Season 2 Finals will take place in the Anaheim Arena from December 9-11th, with a $750,000 prizepool on the line.

Dignitas +5 RD Virtus.pro -38 RD It means VP got raped in some matches and won by small margins in some others. While Ditnitas had way more close matches on it's defeats. Don't argue with numbers.
2016-11-27 22:49
So for example a 16-3 win at Nuke starting on CT side is more meaningful than a 16-12 win starting on T side WutFace

Brazil hugoooo 
That's a terrible excuse. Those numbers were gotten from lots of matches, not one nuke.
2016-11-27 23:56
What about CT sided maps like Overpass, Train and Mirage? Should for example a 16-5 CT side start scoreline mean more than a 16-10 scoreline on a T side start? Because that would mean that knife rounds basically could decide your tiebreaker which is pretty bullshit. H2H system or even an round robin (the one they use at IEM tournaments if there's a tiebreaker) are better solutions

kkkkk, they are getting better with lekro
2016-11-28 00:36
Thought process from Flusha in those last rounds against Gambit was painful to watch tho But at least they are winning maps now so there's still hope
2016-11-28 00:38
But he has a point that could become a problem in competitive league CS That round margins can't be used as a real comparison because of heavy sided maps in the pool Nuke, Cobblestone, Overpass, Train, (Cache)
2016-11-28 07:00
Just play more youll see. A scoreline is a perfect way to determine a teams skill and will stay that way. Each team plays both sides. And have an equal chance. Cbble, overpass and cache are all T sided as well. :)
2016-11-28 17:46
When it goes down to 3-4 Rounds it depends on what side you started on Nuke...
2016-11-28 18:51
Yes but thats how good you are as a team, if you cant do the same as the other team did on their side then you need to improve.
2016-11-28 19:11
They probably will never play that fucking Site If a Team excellent on Nuke CT starts on T and looses the fist half 3:12 But they win the second 13:1 They could've gone out with a +14 Round difference instead of a +3
2016-11-28 20:45
And lets say there concurrent starts on the ct side ...
2016-11-28 20:46
You dont get his argument, do you? It is not a matter of winning or losing, it is a matter of round difference. An elite CT Nuke team starting on CT will win with a bigger margin than the same team starting T-side. It is that simple.
2016-11-28 22:25
If VP don't care about online matches then they deserve to be relegated
2016-11-27 23:27
they do care, but i guess that's the problem with online qualifiers, teams like VP can't bring the "hype" of a lan and step up their game, while playing from their houses.... it sucks, but, it has to be like that P.S. Taz was even salty on Twitter later saying that "every EU team is an onliner", which Pasza replied that they were moving to NA, while calling the SK guys to turn on the fire for the barbecue.... lol

Its because vp dont know how to use rates to their advantage like all the young teams. And im sure they are terrible at keeping their PCs running smoothly. Thus why they do fine offline on presetup comps

750k prize pool and 7 tier 2 teams and SK. Even though I hate SK, I really hope they will win this one.
2016-11-27 22:06
ECS prize pool will be most likely splitted accross the whole league. So the winner will get 150-200k or so.
2016-11-27 22:17
He is saying the prizepool is 750k, not the winning amount.
2016-11-27 22:37
And I am saying not the whole 750k is going to those 8 teams.
2016-11-27 22:41
well then you don't know what prizepool means. The prizepool for the ECS S2 Finals is 750.000 US Dollars.
2016-11-27 22:42
Well, I remembered wrong, it was 1.75millions over the whole league.

did you know fat cunt VP on LAN had 99,9% win ratio agaisnt this online shiters ? only one game what they lose to this pleb stack is this legendary 16:0 (other lineup) mongolid allu last time when i listen interview with him i start think he is on drug drunk or something jakem rain pornwegian combo on LAN play with 100kg shit in pants another superstar aimer Aizy i remember 1 years ago shitstorm on HLTV about him how he is fantastic every game in dignitas 30x bombs he is wasted talend in dignitas rip competive scene if he join to faze hahaahahah
2016-11-28 00:36

2016-11-28 02:17

2016-11-28 12:27
They didn't lose only one Legendary 16-0 it was part of a series. Know your shit before talking out of your ass. I'm not sure if it was faceit s2 or s3 but the result was: VP won train in overtime(19-16) Kinguin won dust2 (16-12/16-10) Kinguin won cache (16-0) And then again when this team was g2, they beat vp in the quarters of dreamhack Cluj napoca major. This is not including the multiple times they have trashed vp online.

Oh you're a VP player?
2016-11-28 06:23
There's a huge silver lining to not qualify for this for some teams. The tournament is literally days before the major qualifier starts.
2016-11-27 22:10
It should be head to head which should decide the 4th spot. This should be changed. And format too. They cant play 2xbo1.
2016-11-27 22:11
Have fun deciding a 6-way tie on H2H ...
2016-11-27 22:15
Nip and VP are 6-4. Best of this 6 teams. I´ve done it during the day and it took just 5 minutes, maybe less. Nip have +8 rd, VP +7
2016-11-27 22:19
"Nip have +8 rd, VP +7" You're deciding it by round difference again though.
2016-11-27 22:21
This time it is just between two teams and where I wrote Nip should qualify. I think they should play additional BO3 to decide who qualify.
2016-11-27 22:26
Well you forgot to mention that dig and g2 were 5-5 In any other tie (5 way tie with only one of nip/mous) Dig would have gone through. You make it sound like dig were way behind on h2h.
2016-11-28 06:12
Mouz were 5-5 too. And then Godsent 3-7. If you want it complete, it would look like this In 5-way tie with Nip: Nip and Dig are 5-3, VP and G2 4-4 and Godsent 2-6 In 5-way tie with Mouz: VP 5-3, Dig, G2, Mouz are 4-4, Godsent 3-5.

BO1 means nothing in this game either. You start lose a knife round and then start on a bad side, lose first 5 rounds, the other team gets double AWP and molotovs and you have a problem. Look at for example ESL New York finals. VP destroyed NaVi on cbble (first map) yet we've seen a great comeback and a overtime win from NaVi on third map. BO1 takes away all of the thrill from those games and it takes nearly the same amount of time. Just reduce the break between maps to 5 minutes instead of taking 10-15 minutes of bullshit analysis, ads and then 7 minutes of poor's man music loop and we might have a reasonable online league.
2016-11-28 06:16
Pretty sure neither of Danish teams will win. Epic center was a fluke.. Semifinals max for Onliners

2016-11-27 23:42
since when all of us obliged to cheer for "legends"? you're so boring with those statements if i respect forest personally and if i think gtr is a great player i still can think that nip sucks as a team with its 2012 strategies and 2012 playstyle p.s. bot friberg aprroves this message

2016-11-28 18:34
You seems to be the only one who didn't get this message. Even if they won 1 decent tournament in 2 last years doesn't make NiP great team ATM for me personally. It's not blind hate when you dislike team for its boring playstyle.

2016-11-28 00:24
So many tears from VP and NIP fanboys, look if these two teams can't reach fourth place with 18 matches to prove their value, supposedly top3 teams, then they don't deserve to be there at the finales. Simple. 'Online' is just a fanboy excuse, if it was one match I could understand but there has been 18 fucking matches, this is enough to exclude any statistical aberration.

If you've ever played at a semi decent competitive level you know that there is a massive difference between online and lan play. They are almost two different games.
2016-11-28 04:15
like you ever played in a decent competitive level...
2016-11-28 05:38
If you have motivational issues in trying to qualify for a tournament you don't deserve to be there. And I don't see much difference in LAN and online play because in almost all the matches I have watched both teams have the same ping. So if you really dont want to play a big money LAN that is not the fault of the teams who WANT to qualify and you most definitely cannot insult them by calling them onliners. If you CBA to play online don't bother registering for the league in the first place.
2016-11-28 06:20
That's cause you are a faze fanboi. Ofcourse there is a difference playing online and at a lan tournament. Internet issues, losses, terrible communication, distractions etc. While for onliners, it's the comfort of their home, their PC, their hacks maybe (joke). I have a friend who destroys everyone online, when we used to play online pug games and then he can't perform on lan, due to pressure. It happens. Also we insult the teams and call them onliners because many of them are not able to replicate their online performance on lan. Faze is the biggest example, of what an onliner team is,up until karrigan joined them and kio came back.

Online is not a big deal. BO1 and round difference rules are. It just doesn't work for this game. It doesn't matter if we're talking about EPL, ECS or Major group stages. BO1 is too fragile. Too seldom does the favored team win. You start bad and you're done. And round difference when two sides can be so different depending on the map? You sometimes cannot put up a fight if you lose only few key rounds that put you at bad economy.

There is nothing dope in winning against those teams. I'm sure even SK is disappointed they won't have anybody worth their time. Money is not everything. SK want to fight Na'Vi, NiP and VP to truly prove they are the best.
2016-11-28 06:22
If nip vp and navi didn't qualify it's because their shit, it's not astralis, faze, nv or dignitas fault. Sk wanna face the best, and the best were those 4 teams, sorry.

That doesn't even compare mate, SK has a WAAAAAAY easier qualifier then the EU teams, no NA team is a threat to SK, had SK been living in EU instead of NA right now there is no guarantee that they would have made it to the top 4 and gotten a LAN spot.
2016-11-28 13:00
I feel like CS scene after Cologne is completly messed-up. Bad schedules because there are too many tournaments. I think that ESL, ECS and others events organizers should discuss their events schedules for 2017 because this 2nd Half of 2016 is just a big mess, imo.

SK plays in NA you idiot. Even fnatic would have qualified if they played in NA. The drop in skill after top 3 teams in NA is too significant.
2016-11-28 06:23
Playing in NA, let's see sk competing against EU onliners and qualifying... In na teams don't even play good online.

Brazil Collee 
Let's see what? Let's see how they'll perform against these 4 european teams that don't even have an advantage in the head to head game against SK? It doesn't change anything for SK, they would still qualify because they beat the s*** out of these 4 teams that qualified. Maybe it would change for the other 3 teams I know it's easier for SK, but it doesn't change the fact that the teams from top 5 couldn't qualify. If you're on top 5, you're supposed to qualify in a group no matter who you're playing against, since you could qualify even being placed as #4 in the group. But we won't have a single european team from top 5 that managed to do it. Actually, we have dignitas, but they'll probably get out of the top 5 soon
2016-11-28 16:31
Im not saying SK is bad man. Im saying NA teams are bad. it is very easy to qualify,and even you know that.
2016-11-28 19:20

the thing about ECS is that they didnt even care to upload regulations of the league, so ppl have to guess how it will get sorted out instead of knowing before even the championship starts. I know this is normal way to decide who goes who does not, but we had same thing in ESL and we had decider BO3. Amateurish organization. BTW, the standings and match dates were not updated for two days since friday, only to sort it out yesterday at midnight.

2016-11-28 17:21
people are slating that there are so many tier 2 teams here, but there are still a couple of tier 1 teams imo such as Cloud9, dignitas and SK that can make this tournament good, I think I'll be supporting nV in this one.

Dignitas tier 1? if they would be tier 1, they wouldn't drop out in groups at ESEA Brazil and or last place at DH Winter... come on
2016-11-28 19:19
true, but they had good finishes before those tournaments and won EPICENTER which imo makes them tier 1. a lot of the top teams are shaky atm though imo. there are just way too many tournaments happening at one time which is really affecting the performance of many top teams

but cloud9 won ESEA Brazil, they arent tier 1, same quality of tournament
2016-11-28 21:33
but were having good performances previous to EPL S4 just like dignitas were which is why I still consider them tier 1. your opinion is your opinion but I think if they can give a showing like they have at some of the tournaments where they performed well then this has the potential to be a lot more entertaining than it looks from just seeing the teams going is all I'm saying.

everyone can win tournaments now, Gambit even won DH with Dignitas and Cloud9, scene is a joke
2016-11-28 21:42
tournaments need to be better organised imo. I personally don't agree with you that the fact that any team can win a tournament makes the scene a joke but what does make it less entertaining to watch teams compete is the overflow of tournaments. at max there should be 2 big tournaments a month imo otherwise the quality of CS:GO played just dwindles since players constantly have to be on the move and have no time to prepare and practice for other teams.

the only consistent team is SK right now, they go the semis in the worst case scenario. Pro scene needs some time to shape up.
