The North American part of ECS' sixth season has concluded, with NRG, MIBR, Renegades and Liquid securing spots at the LAN finals later this month.

MIBR became the final North American squad to book their place in the ECS Season 6 Finals set to take place in Arlington, Texas on November 22-25, after taking down Rogue 16-2 on Inferno last night.

The Brazilian/American team joins NRG, Renegades and Nick "nitr0" Cannella's Liquid as qualified teams alongside the four best sides in the European edition of the online tournament in the fight to become ECS Champions, a title currently held by the world's current #1, Astralis.

NRG only lost five maps in 18 ECS matches

Renegades qualified on the back of a sprint in the last part of the online league, as the Aaron "AZR" Ward-lead team won nine out of their final ten maps to reach 39 points and place second after NRG on the back of head-to-head results only.

Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte, who has recently been on quite the run with Exceptionally Valuable Player (EVPs) nods at ESL One New York and StarSeries i-League Season 6 and the MVP medal at cs_summit 3, also topped the charts in the online part of ECS Season 6, as he managed a 1.36 rating throughout NRG's 18 matches. The 20-year-old is joined by two other NRG members among the top-rated players in the tournament, as Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov and Ethan "nahtE" Arnold reached 1.20 and 1.18, respectively.

At the bottom of the table, Luminosity, who are currently playing IEM Chicago, and Spacestation, who originally qualified as AZIO, have nine points each, which means the sides will play relegation matches in the Challenger Cup for ECS Season 7.

Below is the final standings in ECS Season 6 North America:

In the European part of ECS Season 6, current champions Astralis and their Danish rivals in North have already qualified for the finals, with FaZe and mousesports currently in third and fourth place and NiP just outside of qualifying range in fifth. Twelve maps have yet to be played in the European group stage, with LDLC, who are currently in the quarter-finals at IEM Chicago, missing a total of eight maps.

"with LDLC, who are currently in the quarter-finals at IEM Chicago, missing a total of eight maps" Will they count as defeat or are they just being postponed ?

It's mean to say that they're still playing 8 maps in ecs, they won't count as defeat

When MiBR clicks i will be here to rain down hate on you little kids that don't understand the word process.

Uhmm... "Vincent 'Brehze' Cayonte [...]. The 20-year-old is joined by two other NRG members among the top-rated players in the tournament, as Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad and Ethan "nahtE" Arnold reached 1.20 and 1.18, respectively." Is it me misunderstanding something or is it implied that jkaem is an NRG member? If so, please fix.
2018-11-09 15:18
Thanks for spotting that. It's supposed to be CeRq, who was just one spot below jkaem in the player rankings for the event, I changed it.
2018-11-09 15:58
No problem, thank you. :)

I think playing bangkok would be smarter because they could place high or potentially even win it. In a group with liquid, astralis and faze, they will get dead last at ecs.
2018-11-10 16:49
But If I'm not wrong the last place at least on last ecs finals won 35k, 15k less than winning the Bangkok event
