ESL TM CPS 15 Play offs Coverage Hub

Welcome to the ESL Trackmania Competition Premiership Season 15 Playoffs coverage hub.

The Playoffs gives teams who may have had an unlucky start to the season another chance to take the top spot and be declared Champions for the season. Only the top four teams from Division 1 are eligible which means that MnM who managed to squeeze the fourth place spot towards the end of season 15 have qualified for the playoffs.

The teams in the playoffs (listed from first to fourth) are:

  • Team Dignitas
  • Planetkey-Dynamics
  • Team Easykiller (Easy.eSports)
  • Molotovs and Marshmallows

Since Team Dignitas placed 1st at the end of the season meaning they automatically qualify for the playoff finals and Planetkey-Dynamics placed in Semi-finals. It will be an uphill battle for MnM as the team will have to beat each team in order to claim first place.
