The Road to World Domination – Top Teams at ECS

With half of the ECS matches completed, and half remaining, this is a good time to assess the top teams that are dominating this season of the ECS. So let’s see which teams are currently ruling the League Ladder.

Top Teams – Europe

Fnatic

Out of a total of 18 matches they are due to play in the league, Fnatic have played 14. They’re doing well, with 11 wins and just 3 losses, giving them 33 points. They had a close match with GODSENT recently. The map was Mirage and it went into overtime. A very good performance by GODSENT, but they couldn’t defeat Fnatic in overtime and lost the match.

The only losses Fnatic faced were against FaZe Clan in Train (13:16), Astralis in Mirage (10:16) and G2 Esports in Cobblestone (13:16). It’s significant that every match that Fnatic lost was a second match. This is something to bear in mind while betting on – or against – Fnatic.

ECS S4 stats

Fnatic have a 78% win-rate per match and a 56% win-rate per round, with a 7% chance of a match going into overtime.

Overall stats with their current roster

Fnatic have played 63 matches with this roster and won 36. This gives them a 57% chance of winning a match and a 52% chance per round. They have a 12% chance that a match will enter overtime. Their best maps are Inferno, with a 100% win-rate, and their worst map is Mirage, with a 34% win-rate.


FaZe Clan

With 3 losses and 7 victories FaZe Clan are number two on the list. This means they still have 8 matches left. Out of these, 4 matches were postponed. Those matches were against G2 Esports and GODSENT. If the postponed matches are not played, then FaZe Clan are only left with 4 matches, which would hardly be in their best interests. Their current score is 21 points.

They lost a match against mousesports in Inferno (12:16), Team EnVyUs in Train (7:16) and Fnatic in Mirage(14:16). One of the matches won by FaZe Clan went into overtime against Team EnVyUs.
