NRG are back in ECS action, presumably looking to remain sharp between IEM Sydney and cs_summit 4
FACEIT have announced the schedule for the first round of matches in the fourth week of ECS Season 7. The third week saw FURIA take the final direct qualification spot at the Finals, in a 2-1 over INTZ.
Curiously NRG, who have already qualified for the ECS Finals in June, are slated to compete. MIBR will be making their Season 7 debut, and Liquid will be returning having been absent after their opening round loss to Rogue in week one. Cloud9, eUnited and Spacestation are all set to make appearances after attending in previous weeks.
With the tournament moving into the final two weeks of competition, there are no more direct qualification spots to the ECS Finals. The final place for North America will be handed to the highest earning team not already qualified for the competition, meaning all teams have a shot in the final two weeks.
So far, compLexity, NRG and FURIA are confirmed as North American representatives at the ECS Finals, with Vitality, North and Astralis set to represent Europe in June.
The schedule for week four, with times in EDT, is as follows:
|Monday, May 13th|
|Singularity vs. MIBR||6 PM|
|NRG vs. eUnited||6 PM|
|Cloud9 vs. Luminosity||9 PM|
|Liquid vs. Spacestation||9 PM|
Along with the new bracket, FACEIT had previously announced that the tournament will commence using Vertigo over Cache starting with Week 4.

From Week 4, #ECS7 teams will battle it out on the 51st floor, as de_vertigo has replaced de_cache in the ECS map pool.
