RC EMS One group draw
The group draw for the RaidCall EMS One is now complete, and the 16 participants have learned their fate in this stage of the tournament.
With VeryGames coming out on top of the last EMS One cup on Thursday, it is now time to move on to the tournament's group stage, which will throw together the 16 teams who fared the best during the four cups.
The ESL decided to use a unique system for this draw, as the top four seeded sides were given the chance to swap their place in the group with that of any other team from any other group.
This allowed Ninjas in Pyjamas to avoid a tricky group, as the Swedish giants switched places with LDLC.com to avoid being pitted together with k1ck, ESC Gaming and Absolute Legends.
All group matches will be played in a best-of-one format, with the top two sides from each group progressing to the playoffs, which will be held at the ESL's TV studio in Cologne from April 13th-14th.
