Participants of the tournament
This season FACEIT have made up and applied a new system of selection of participants in the LAN final. Now in Europe and North America the teams played in five series that defined the teams worthy enough to get invited to ECS Season 7 Finals. The winners of the first three series got the invites immediately. The fourth invitation was given to the team that would show the best result during all five weeks of holding the league at the two divisions.
At the first series of the North American league an interesting situation happened. Rogue won the final fighting with Complexity Gaming and provided themselves with an invitation to the LAN final. But three players left the team after this. Due to that, the representatives of Rogue were forced to give their slot to the vice-champions of ECS Season 7 North America Week 1 — Complexity Gaming.
