Schedule for ECS Season 3 released

Esports Championship Series (ECS) creators FACEIT has released the complete schedule for the online portion of Season 3.

Running from April 14 to June 8, the regular ECS season will see 20 teams compete over eight weeks for the chance to qualify for the offline finals, where the bulk of the league's $750,000 prize pool will be up for grabs.

Europe GytiZ 
Yes. Do u see how they play? They should be disbanded before that event even starting.
2017-04-12 23:54
Ranked 11 right now, so then every team outside of top 10 should disband then, since they are worse than NIP?

Look at teams behind top 12 teams. Heroic, CLG, mousesports, Liquid. All these teams are shit and they never gonna win something. NiP have f0rest who's tier 1 player. NiP should do huge roster change or disband. Lekro f0rest pronax twist get_right
