ECS Season 5 Finals teams set

The online portion of ECS’s fifth season has come to an end, with eight teams qualified for the LAN and four to play the Challenger Cups.

May 12th marked the end of the ECS season in both Europe and North America, with eight teams, four from North America and four from Europe, qualifying for the LAN finals, which are set to take place on June 8-10 in Wembley.

Astralis had a near flawless season online

Out of the 20 teams, there is also a handful of them that will have to play the ECS Season 6 Challenger Cup to keep their slot in the league against contenders coming from an open qualifier to the league. In Europe, it will be Gambit and Envy, while in North America it will be OpTic and Complexity, the latter having dropped out of the league due to scheduling conflicts.

The European teams qualified to the offline finals in London are Astralis, who only lost one map out of the 18 they played, followed by G2, fnatic, and FaZe, while in North America it was NRG spearheading the standings, followed by Cloud9. A three-way tie then saw Liquid and Luminosity make the cut over Renegades, while SK, the season 3 champions, ended behind.

The full team list for the ECS Season 5 Finals is:

Denmark Astralis United States NRG
France G2 United States Cloud9
Sweden fnatic North America Liquid
Europe FaZe Brazil Luminosity

Renegades got cucked by round difference, they deserve to be here over some of these teams and round difference shouldn't be the deciding factor.

Several great teams will not show up on the Finals, such as Na’Vi and mousesports. Also, SK find themselves on a terrible slump currently. So, that was perfectly expected. And I’ll give you an spoiler about EPLS7 Finals: SK to be eliminated on group stage once again.

I'm not sure if they're going to be in the group stage again, at least until the playoffs they will. I felt a better game of them in the 2-0 against Liquid
