Groups and schedule for ECS Season 6 Finals revealed
With less than a week remaining until the start of the ECS Season 6 Finals, FACEIT has revealed the groups and the schedule for the $660,000 event.
ECS Season 6 Finals will take place in Arlington, Texas, USA with eight teams in attendance. The group stage will be played out in the first two days and will use a GSL format. The opening games will be best-of-ones while all other matches get played as best-of-threes.
The groups were seeded based on the standings at the North American and European ECS divisions. Astralis headlines Group A alongside mousesports and MIBR, while Liquid will take on the likes of NRG and NiP in Group B to get through to the playoffs.
The playoffs at the Esports Stadium in Arlington will have a single-elimination, best-of-three format and will feature the top two sides from both groups. Following two semi-finals on Saturday, the grand final will be held on Sunday with the winning team taking home $250,000.
