Last week we watched ECS Season 5 conclude in spectacular style with live finals at the SSE Arena in Wembley, London. Eight teams gathered there after a hard-fought campaign in the online league, including the on-form Danish side Astralis . Joining them were G2, Fnatic, NRG Esports, Cloud9, Team Liquid, Luminosity Gaming and, of course, the ever-present FaZe Clan. It was Astralis who ended up winning – and in dominant fashion, not losing a single series over the course of the entire tournament. But this event was about more than just them. We saw countless top-level plays at Wembley, and not just from the favourites. Here are eight of the best.
