Viewer's Guide: ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals

1
The top 6 teams from both the North American and European regional ESL Pro League seasons have come together and will face each one another in the Sparekassen Fyn Arena in Odense, Denmark throughout this week.
After a great showing from the crowd at the Blast Series event in Denmark last month it is hoped that the Danish fans will be out in force once again to provide an electric audience as the event looks to crown the best of the best.

The event contains six of the current top 10 teams in the world, including the current top four, SK Gaming, Faze Clan, Astralis and Ninjas in Pyjamas.

However due to roster changes, roster lock rules and illness some teams are not at their full strength, with Astralis having to play with Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel from Team Dignitas in place of their star player Nicolai "device" Reedtz; and Team Liquid are having to play with their coach Wilton "Zews" Prado, with player Lucas "steel" Lopes missing out.

Broadcasting team

The on-air broadcasting team sees O.J. Borg hosting the event as a whole, and Alex "Machine" Richardson hosting the desk segments, where he has three either ex or current professionals joining him to provide analysis.

The commentary teams had a last minute adjustment as Vince Hill was called in to replace Lauren "Pansy" Scott who is suffering from food poisoning and therefore unable to attend the event.
