Selfless secure last-chance EPL spot
Selfless won their last-chance match against Splyce to stay in ESL Pro League, taking the spot that was left vacant by Echo Fox.
As we posted yesterday, the North American organization Echo Fox informed ESL that they were unable to field a line-up for the 5th season of ESL Pro League, so a match between Selfless and Splyce was played to decide who will fill the spot.
Both teams have lost their ESL Pro League Season 4 relegation matches and were due to play in the next season of ESEA Premier before this opportunity arose.

The series started on Cobblestone, Splyce's map pick, but the team that featured Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen as a stand-in wasn't able to take it home in the end, losing narrowly: 16-14. It was a different story on Mirage where Selfless were crushed 16-6 on their map pick, securing only one round on the CT side.
It all came down to the decider, Cache, where Selfless ran away with the lead on the T side and managed to close it out 16-12 in the end.
With Selfless winning the last-chance match, they regained a spot in the North American division of ESL Pro League S5. The full team list is as follows:
