Earning the first spot in the ECS Finals, NRG finished out the season on a six game winning streak to achieve a 13-5 record.

While the above will maintain their spots in the league regardless, eUnited managed a 6-10 record, keeping them alive for Season 7, but that means even if they close out their season with two wins, they will still be absent from the playoffs. 

The Season 7 Challenger Cup qualifiers will have their winners duke it out against Luminosity and Spacestation as the two will be cast into relegation with their records of 3-15 and 2-14, respectively. Spacestation will be able to change their seeding with two wins, or enough rounds to beat Luminosity in the round differential with a single win, but the outcome will remain the same.
