EMS: The end, a new beginning

image: 9avxjah2

And here it is, the end of season 6 of the ESL Major Series. This season was extraordinary and if you ask me why, I would say mainly because we had so many surprises in the Group Stage, Relegation Phase and again, in the final match. If you want to know about what surprises I'm talking, you can see them here!

The final battle between the best teams from this season of the ESL Major Series was intense. FinlandFintastic5 came from the Lower Bracket after losing against United Kingdomdignitas, in the Winner Bracket Semi-Final. At that point, we all believed that the best all-time team, dignitas, will win this season. But the fins worked hard and got into the Grand Final, after beating Europei dont know.

First match was starting, goldrush was easily won by the fins and there it is, the second and most important map from this match, adlernest. With almost 9 seconds before the end of the time, fins delivered the objective and got themselves back in top, becoming favorites at winning the 2nd match. Luck? I doub that, as in the 2nd match, the same maps were played. What made dignitas play the 2nd maps knowingly that they don't stand a chance against the fins, only they know. However, they grant an easy win to Finlandfintastic5 and thus, letting them become the Champions of the ESL Major Series 6.

Let's see the final standing of season 6:

Reserved Slots

Yes, we have reserved slots for the EMS teams that didn't drop during the Group Phase. The main rule is that you need to have the same team account that participated in the last season. If you want to get a reserved slot, just write a support ticket. After 5 days, the pending reserved slots will be available for all other teams!

A short notice about the reserved slots. You need to have over 50% of the team that participated in the last EMS Groups Stage in order to request such a slot. So basicly, you need to have 3 out of 5 players from the team that participated in the EMS, season VI, to get a reserved slot.

Don't forget to sign up as fast as possible, time is short! Have fun!
