[Update] CS:GO ECS Season 5 finals power rankings — can Astralis be stopped? | ecs season 5 – Vietnamnhanvan

ecs season 5: คุณกำลังดูกระทู้

There are eight teams left in the fifth season of ECS, and each will be going for the lion’s share of $660,000 dollars this weekend in London. Yet only one can win, and not all games are created equal. We break down the teams in our power rankings.

Editor’s Picks

  • Valve modifies 2018/2019 Dota 2 pro circuit

  • Overwatch League aims to get teams to their home cities by 2020, sources said

  • G2’s new COO Peter Mucha: “I do believe that mobile esports is a massive opportunity space for the esports industry.”

1. Astralis

Astralis are on top of the world right now, fresh of three consecutive final appearances and two finals. Already sparking conversation about its inclusion in the list of the best teams of all time, the Danish squad has never looked as strong as they do now, and are consequently the favourite in any tournament they enter. That said, expect Astralis to weaken with time. Much of its success stems from its creativity with grenades, which will surely be imitated and adapted by other teams. However, Astralis is clever, and the team as taken a few weeks of break, giving themselves time to prepare new strategies to prevent being countered. In truth, this will be a defining moment in this roster’s legacy. Can the squad dominate through the whole summer? If they win this tournament after months of being the top dog, you bet they can.

2. FaZe

While FaZe have officially brought Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer Gustafsson back from his spring hiatus, he will not be attending this tournament, and Jørgen “cromen” Robertsen will serve as a stand-in. This certainly weakens the team, and some may be surprised to see this FaZe lineup so high on this list. However, there are a few factors to keep in mind. For one, FaZe with Richard “Xizt” Landström would’ve been second on this list, and cromen showed some promising talent at EPL Season 7 Finals. That said, he did not convert his momentum into DreamHack Austin, which was disappointing for Heroic overall. But while cromen may not be olofmeister, his skill level is certainly comparable to that of Xizt. Crucially, since FaZe’s style does not require as much preparation as other squads, it should be a simple case of plug and play for its stand-in. And with the holy trinity of Håvard “rain” Nygaard, Nikola “NiKo” Kovač, and Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács, FaZe have more firepower than any team below them despite its stand-in. Coming into ECS, the pressure is off for FaZe because of its roster situation. As we saw in Sydney, this can be very beneficial to these players, and FaZe remains the biggest threat to Astralis at this tournament.

3. Team Liquid

Despite recently being bested by its regional rivals NRG during the StarSeries playoffs, Team Liquid enters the ECS Season 5 Finals as one the world’s best performing teams. Outside of a disastrous performance in Marseille, Liquid has made the playoffs of every offline event it has attended this year. This includes a marvelous run to the finals at the EPL Season 7 Finals. Although there were some questionable losses from Liquid in Kiev, the Americas team still houses some of the region’s most skilled players as well as one of the deepest playbooks. Liquid also seem to be one of the teams that has responded well to the addition of Dust2 to the competitive map pool which provides some flexibility. While Liquid have the tall task of dealing with Astralis in the group stage, it should have an edge over a Cloud9 team that is in the middle of making a roster move, as well as a Fnatic that is in flux after adding a player and changing roles.

4. Fnatic

Patrick Strack/ESL

Not so long ago, Fnatic was one of the best teams in the world. A couple months later, after nearly cutting Maikil “Golden” Selim and actually cutting Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson in favour of Xizt as its new in-game leader, the roster looks a tad underwhelming. While the key pieces of the machine remain, Lekr0 brought to the team much needed explosiveness in force-buy and entry situations, often bludgeoning a way into the round. While he wasn’t Fnatic’s best player, Lekr0 was certainly one of its most valuable assets, and cutting him instead of former in-game leader Golden is puzzling. On one hand, Fnatic has added a veteran in-game leader to replace the one the old guard on the team don’t respect. At the same time, Fnatic has replaced one of its entries, Lekr0, with its former in-game leader and mediocre fragger Golden. The upgrade at the in-game leader position is debatable, but the shift in the entry role is a net loss. While Fnatic still has one of the world’s most dangerous players in Freddy “KRIMZ”Johansson, his supporting cast seems to have taken a hit coming into ECS. Fnatic’s success will hinge on Xizt’s ability to use JW and Golden effectively to find openings into the round; without an improvement from both players, Fnatic will struggle to make a deep run at this tournament.

5. NRG

The men over at NRG just delivered a big performance with a second place finish at the StarSeries i-League Season 5 Finals. After months of fantastic online play yet relatively neutral offline results, NRG has now made some big progress in the world rankings. Star players Ethan “nathE” Arnold and Tsvetelin “CERq” Dimitrov played excellent in their finals run at StarSeries with Vince “Brehze” Cayonte continuing to play at a consistently high level. Even Jacob “FugLy” Medina looked much improved in the team’s last outing. They team continues to operate well tactically and it seems this will only be strengthened with the addition of coach Chet “ImAPet” Singh. Given the mystery surrounding how well the new G2 can perform as well as the constant struggles Luminosity has had offline, NRG should have a solid shot at another playoffs appearance in London. The only thing stopping NRG from a higher ranking here is the need for more big offline finishes. The fact of the matter is that the core of fnatic has had a great past few months. NRG could certainly change things with a big result at ECS combined with what we have seen so far.

6. Cloud9

We all know that Cloud9 is in a transition phase with Pujan “FNS” Mehta being demoted to a stand-in for this event. This combined with the team’s recent struggles in offline play make it hard to expect much from them as they head to London. There is certainly a chance that Cloud9’s stars will perform well in what is now a “dead team” and therefore a fairly pressure free environment. Even with that in mind it’s hard to put much stock in Cloud9 until they make a decision on what changes they want to make long term. Given the difficulty of the teams in its group, there is really only an outside chance that Cloud9 reaches the playoffs.

7. G2 Esports

With G2, we’re kind of at a loss for words. All but two of the members of the previous French lineup remain: Kenny “kennyS” Schrub and Alexandre “bodyy” Pianaro. On one hand, the roster is exciting due to kennyS’ reunion with Richard “shox” Papillon, as well as the long awaited return to the top tier of in-game leader Kevin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans. On the other hand, the roster feels clunky, as the three new players haven’t played at tournaments for quite a few months now. Given the big names, G2 is a team to keep an eye on, but the lack of recent data leaves us in the dark when it comes to how good G2 will be, and how fast.

8. Luminosity

Luminosity recently was able to pick up a very experienced player to lead the team in the form of Lucas “steel” Lopes, yet the Brazilian squad has still struggled to produce notable results. While Luminosity did do well in the ECS regular season and managed to qualify for DreamHack Open Valencia, the team looked in rough shape recently at DreamHack Open Austin. Luminosity has also fallen short in several qualifiers over the last few months and thus has not made many offline appearances. On top of that, the core of the team has never made it past the group stage of an international tournament and have also often taken group stage exits in North American events. Unfortunately, there just isn’t much going for the Brazilians as they head to London with some tough opponents in front of them.

[Update] Meet the teams competing at the ECS season five finals | ecs season 5 – Vietnamnhanvan

For the past two years, FACEIT has hosted the LAN finals of their tier one online league, ECS, in Wembley Arena for thousands of adoring fans and this weekend will be no different. After two months of online play, four teams from both Europe and North America are going to be playing in the tournament at Wembley. This fifth season, the third of which to be hosted in London, will be the stage on which eight of the best teams from across Europe and North America battle it out to win their stake of a $660,000 (roughly £491,000) prize pool. The following article is ENUK’s pre-event summary which will delve into some of the detail about the ECS finals with exclusive interviews from the likes of: Astralis’ latest addition, Magisk; Team Liquid’s IGL and AWPer, Nitr0; Fnatic’s Xizt and NRG’s nahtE.
The Americans
Team Liquid
This American line-up is seen as one of the favourites to proceed out of the group stage and into playoffs alongside but not in front of the Danish squad, Astralis. To progress out of groups however, the American roster will have to beat two Major winning teams, one of which being their NA rivals Cloud9. Despite this, Team Liquid’s odds are favourable in the possible group stage matchups due to their all-star NA roster and recent success at a variety of tier one LANs. Although Team Liquid’s promising results in IEM Katowice and a recent second place result in Dallas show positive signs, they were somewhat overshadowed by an upset loss to another NA squad – NRG. Proving themselves at the ECS finals will be important to Team Liquid. However, despite seeing Liquid as the, “most skilled team in North America”, Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella claimed the roster will, “keep working on their mistakes”, and, “hope to play NRG in the playoffs.”
Elige and Olof
One of the fan favourites, Cloud9, are entering the competition in what cannot be described as anything but an absolute killer group. Accompanied by the aforementioned Team Liquid, Fnatic and Astralis, the future doesn’t look easy for the NA side. However, with years of professional LAN experience under the players’ belts and with a Major title to boast, Cloud9 definitely can’t be underrated. One thing to note coming into the ECS Finals is that Cloud9 actually sent their main rivals Team Liquid packing in an elimination match at the ECS S4 Finals in Cancun. Will history repeat itself or will Team Liquid return the favour?
Prior to the recent Starseries I-League S5 result, where NRG finally turned up and showed signs of life, many would have written off NRG going into ECS in a group with FaZe and G2. Since then however, thanks to a top two finish, the squad is looking more like serious contenders. Esports News UK discussed with NRG’s Ethan “nahtE” Arnold his expectations and how far he thought his team would progress through the finals here in London. The young star claimed how he had mixed feelings on the matter. Whilst on the one hand he explained the daunting task of potentially playing against Faze and how they often play in somewhat of a “puggy” manner, on the other he said the momentum of NRG’s recent performance in Ukraine may elevate them to the level required to make the playoffs.
Whilst no team present at the ECS S5 Finals can be written off, some definitely look stronger than others and Luminosity are on the bottom end of that scale. Although the team had a solid ECS qualifying stage, ending with the same win loss ratio as Team Liquid, they recently got knocked out of Dreamhack Austin without winning a single map. That sort of result, especially against the tier of competition at an event such as Dreamhack Austin, doesn’t stand the Brazilian line-up in good stead in the run up to ECS, so all eyes will be on Lucas “steel” Lopes and co. to see whether the team can perform. Another storyline to be aware of is that Steel’s former team, Team Liquid, is in the opposing group; meaning the two parties may end up running into each other.
The Europeans
The clear favourite for the event in London is Astralis. Ranked number one for seven consecutive weeks on the HLTV world rankings, any opponent is going to find it hard to beat this Danish team. Coming into the tournament having won two and placing second in their last three events, cashing in nearly $400,000 in the process, Astralis are entering the arena with a lot of momentum behind them. “I hope we will meet them in the final,” said Astralis’ latest addition, Emil “Magisk” Reif when asked if he’d like to face FaZe Clan in the final. “It’s always a good match up against them and I think we have a good idea after playing them a few times now, that we know how we want to play against them and how we want to make our game plan.”
FaZe Clan
One of Astralis’ biggest rivals, FaZe Clan, is also present and was seen as a big threat to Astralis until it was discovered that the team would be playing with a stand-in, the Norwegian Jørgen “cromen” Robertsen, due to Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer Gustafsson missing the event for unknown reasons. Since the revelations, FaZe Clan are viewed by most as less of a threat, but make no mistake the FaZe roster is still a fierce one. With the likes of Håvard “rain” Nygaard , Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács and Nikola “NiKo” Kovač on the roster, all of which were in the HLTV’s top 10 players of 2017, FaZe cannot be slept on and are therefore expected to make it out of groups.
The Swedish giants have been involved in esports for over a decade now and their latest member, Richard “Xizt” Landström, joined and left the organisation in 2010 and 2012 respectively; back when the organisation fielded a CS 1.6 team. Esports News UK sat down with Xizt ahead of the ECS Finals and asked what his expectations were for the team going into the tournament with such little time to prepare. Xizt claimed that ECS was, “Going to be tough”, but that the team were practising as much as possible and that he felt both Fnatic’s and his own recent victories at tournaments such as WESG, Katowice and IEM Sydney are acting like, “a confidence booster”, within the team.
A last-minute roster change saw two players joining the G2 roster and one player, Richard “shox” Papillon, return to its active line-up. The rumoured transfer, which saw Dan “apEX” Madesclaire and Nathan “NBK-” Schmitt move onto the organisation’s bench, was teased for weeks if not months prior to the event but came as a shock due to its somewhat last-minute announcement. The seemingly rushed nature of the move calls into question what sort of result the French line-up can achieve with such a lack of preparation however with stars like Shox and Kenny “kennyS” Schrub on the line-up, an upset win cannot be ruled out.

Only time will tell who will triumph at the ECS Finals at Wembley but what is certain is that it will be an absolute spectacle. The online stream is free to watch over on FACEIT’s Youtube channel, or if you’d prefer to watch live in the prestigious Wembley arena then tickets are still available for the 9th and 10th over on the ECS website.

Jamie has been following competitive Counter-Strike for roughly four years and has fallen in love with esports ever since, slowly branching out into other titles and learning more about the industry. He has recently started an esports degree in London.

“I started playing CSGO when I first got my own PC and haven’t really stopped ever since,” he said. “After playing more competitively I opened my eyes to esports and have been doing my best to learn as much as possible about both the competitive side within CSGO and the business side across the industry as a whole.

“Much of my work so far has consisted of interviews, however I hope to branch out in the future and write more content about Counter-Strike.”
