Posted 8th December 2017 By: Kyle-Tipify Staff    64 Views
The ESL Pro League Season 6 (EPL) will get the ground running as it heads to the tournament’s playoff stages. The group stages of the EPL is finished and Group A leader, FaZe and Group B leader, SK Gaming has advanced to the semi-finals.
What happened in the past days of the EPL?
The final quarterfinal matches of the tournament will finish today, Friday. There are only two spots left in the semis. Teams fighting for the spots are OpTic against Fnatic and Hellraisers vs Misfits. The winning team of the former will be matched with FaZe and the latter team will face SK to advance in the EPL Finals on Sunday, December 10th.
FaZe and SK has 4-1 win-loss records in the tourney. FaZe suffered their only loss to Fnatic, while SK succumbed to OpTic during the group stage matches. Despite the losses, FaZe went on an undefeated streak in their last three matches, defeating Astralis, Luminosity, and HellRaisers. FaZe continues its powerhouse run after winning the ELEAGUE Premier back in October and scored runner-up behind NiP in Oakland, at the IEM XII. The same story happened to SK—after winning its final three games—defeating NiP, NRG, and Misfits to close out Group B. SK has been on a streak too, after winning the recent Major tournament, the BLAST Pro Series 2017.
So, we’ve got both dominating teams in the semi-finals of the EPL. Will both teams continue their massive streak and plummet their way to another tournament win or will we see upsets?
Another narrative in the EPL is the early elimination of strong CS:GO teams, NiP and Astralis. The Ninjas got their magic back in IEM Oakland after taking down FaZe in the Grand Finals. On the other hand, Astralis placed second behind FaZe in the BLAST Pro Series.
