As the only team in ECS that is not also in EPL, AZIO were unable to make a huge impact in the first week. While Michael "Grim" Wince was able to pull out an incredible ace against MIBR, the team were unable to find a map against Liquid or MIBR. However, they did manage to find one map against Luminosity, with Infinite leading the Americans on Cache.

compLexity, NRG, and Renegades did not play matches this week. While compLexity and NRG will be debuting in two weeks, Renegades' first match will not be until October 22nd, where they will take on MIBR.
