eCup Bracketology, Week #4

by Joe Meyer

       As the eCup enters the final week of the group stage (#DecisionWeek), "Bracketology" brings you an inside look on where each team would stand if the group stage ended today.

       Results through Sunday, April 26th were used for this ranking. As with the main knockout stage, the top 16 players/clubs receive byes into the second round. In addition, just like the knockout stage, all first round matchups in "Bracketology" are determined by random draw.

       In addition to the brackets, which are available on Twitter (@lowerleagueEcup), below is a detailed version of where each team stands heading into the final week. Players and teams are separated into the following categories...

  • Qualified - Qualified for the knockout stage.

  • On Track - A result this week will be enough to get into the knockout stage. Elimination is possible, but unlikely.

  • On the Bubble - Even with a win, it may not be enough depending on results elsewhere.

  • Eliminated - Mathematically impossible to advance to the knockout stage.

Both projected brackets for PS4 and Xbox One can be found here...
