ECS Season 1 - LAN finals information
All eight participants of the ECS Season 1 LAN Finals, held at the SSE Arena in London, have been decided.
After a total of nine weeks of clashing, the final standings and participants for the LAN finals of ECS Season 1 have concluded. Nineteen teams participated throughout the event, nine from Europe and ten from North America (initially there were twenty invited teams, however Natus Vincere pulled out of the event). Matches spread across the nine weeks were played out as best-of-threes, round-robin. The top two teams from each region instantly qualify for the LAN finals, whilst teams that secured 3rd-6th placements played out a double elimination bracket for the two remaining slots in their respective regional leagues.
Below you will find the final standings for all participants of both the European and North American leagues:
|Ninjas in Pyjamas||5:3||Counter Logic Gaming||5:4|
|FaZe Clan||5:3||OpTic Gaming||5:4|
|Team EnVyUs||3:5||NRG eSports||3:6|
|Team Dignitas||1:7||Echo Fox||2:7|
||Team Kaliber (ex-Without a Roof)||1:8|
From the above list, eight teams, four from each region, were able to make it through to the SSE Arena, taking place on June 24-26th at the Wembley Stadium in London, United Kingdom:
|Astralis (EU top seed)||Luminosity Gaming (NA top seed)|
|G2 Esports (EU top seed)||Cloud9 (NA top seed)|
|Fnatic (EU winners' finals)||Team Liquid (NA winners' finals)|
