ECS announces Super Weekend Live

Esports Championship Series (ECS) organisers FACEIT have announced the first Super Weekend Live, with four teams playing a series of matches.

FACEIT has partnered with Esports Arena, a 15,000 square foot venue located in Santa Ana, California, to host six ECS regular season matches in front of a live audience on May 27-28.

SK Gaming, Immortals, Luminosity and CLG are the teams who will be taking part in this event, which will also include signing sessions, guest appearances and live DJ performances as FACEIT aims to build up the hype for the final week of the regular ECS season.

SK will play four ECS matches at the Esports Arena

Tickets for the ECS Super Weekend Live are available to buy here, with prices set at $15. Below you can find the schedule for the three pairs of best-of-one clashes:

Saturday, May 27
20:00 United States CLG vs. Brazil Immortals
22:00 Brazil SK vs. Brazil Luminosity
Sunday, May 28
22:00 Brazil SK vs. Brazil Immortals

Cloud9 are currently topping the ECS North America table, with an 11-3 record. The top four teams from the North American division will join up with the top four European sides at the season finals, in London, from June 24-25.

nah. DJs won't work on cs tournaments, as we have seen in the past.
2017-05-23 17:26
It's not about the DJ, Faceit is doing a great job with ECS and I hope it takes over as the premier online league
2017-05-23 18:25
I like how they already posted what the finals is going to be.
2017-05-24 20:53

Did not learn anything from Katowice it seems
2017-05-23 14:07
so more precisely: they are taking online games from the regular season and are playing them out on LAN in front of a crowd with some extra sponsor shit around it? thats pretty cool i guess.

that's pretty shit
2017-05-23 15:22
dunno, i think its pretty cool but i dont understand how its worth it for ECS/faceit, given how this will likely not get much attention at all and regular online games are loads cheaper to produce than this.
2017-05-23 15:53
it work like propaganda for the main event, ppl talk, public attention on a weekend with no good games going on, and if shit goes well, ppl be hyped for the main event just like that.

Hopefully that Portuguese guy will be ready to play with the Immortals or SK are going to send them back to the shadow realm.

2017-05-23 15:44
wtf are these teams? super weekend with these names? wtf
2017-05-23 15:53
Probably these 4 team houses are nearby the Arena, so it's easy to arrange a lan match between them (instead of online) without players having to travel.

SK and Immortals' gaming houses are both in Los Angeles, so I can see why they'd accept this invite. As for LG, their house is in Toronto, which is nowhere near California. And I don't know where CLG team live.

why are they hosting brazilians teams in NA on LAN instead of NA teams lol? do they not want their tickets to sell??
2017-05-23 22:50
United States n3p 
I think plenty of NA fans will go to see SK. I'd rather watch SK than CLG.
