NiP through to ECS Season 7 Finals as week 5 brackets are revealed

FACEIT has released the brackets for the final week of the online portion of ECS Season 7.

With NiP confirmed for the tournament and AVANGAR nowhere to be seen, the Swedes have automatically qualified for the Season 7 Finals as no team can topple them in the money leaderboard even if they are eliminated in the quarter-finals.

Over in North America, week 4 finalists MIBR and Liquid headline the team list for the final bracket, with the Brazilians currently topping the standings with $12,000, almost $4,000 more than their closest suitors, INTZ and Luminosity.

NiP's involvement in week 5 action sees them claim a LAN spot

The final North American representative will complete the eight-team list for the ECS Season 7 Finals, which will be held from June 6-9 in London, joining the likes of Astralis, NRG and Vitality at the $500,000 competition.

Below you can find the brackets for ECS Week 5:

Europe:

Sweden fnatic vs. Poland Virtus.pro
France G2 vs. Europe mousesports
Europe FaZe vs. Denmark OpTic
Sweden NiP vs. Russia forZe

North America:

United States Singularity vs. Brazil MIBR
United States Cloud9 vs. United States eUnited
Brazil INTZ vs. Brazil Luminosity
United States Liquid vs. United States Spacestation

That's the thing though isn't it. NiP should definitely win against forZe which means they won't
2019-05-17 12:58
Then beat faze mouz and fnatic
2019-05-17 16:25
and lost to giants. will lose against forze
2019-05-17 17:58
I wouldn't be suprised if they just throw, they don't need a win and don't need the money

2019-05-17 15:20
I believe there should be a system that explains which teams are confirmed for next ecs season and which should play quals, so probably fnatic, FaZe etc play week 5 to stay in ecs

w8 mouz has to forfeit right?
2019-05-17 12:16
No. NiP will get a minimum of $750, so they will be sitting at $17,750 at the very least. If mousesports win this bracket, they will have $17,000.

Likely Avangar isn't able to play due their poor seed so not their choice really (this week they only got in cup because optic and fnatic were in ESL)

I mean if they had won last cup surely they would have deserved spot to finals, doubtful tho they would have managed that tbh, seemed pretty lucky for them this week to make final playing kinda low opponents.
