CPH Games groups announced

Copenhagen Games have announced the opening group for its 26,000€ tournament set to kick off on Wednesday in Denmark's capital.

A total of 58 teams have completed the registration for the tournament in time, leading to fifteen groups in total, thirteen of which have four teams and two with just three.

The group stage will be played out using the GSL format, so the top two seeds in NiP and Titan will receive a win in the opening round, and only need one win to advance to playoffs.

Happy NiP squad in the prize ceremony

Will NiP be able to defend their title in Denmark?

The top two finishers in each group will advance to the playoffs of the A tournament, while the other teams will be placed in a separate B tournament, as was the case last year.

The seeds for the groups were decided in cooperation between Copenhagen Games and HLTV.org.

You can find the full groups below, and each group's schedule and match-ups are available on Copenhagen Games' tournament page. All lineups can be found on the participants list.

"Maybe americans starts to invade America huh?" Well there *was* just an armed confrontation in Nevada.
2014-04-14 17:36
Where are Americans (coL and iBP) and where the fuck is Na'Vi and HellRaisers?
2014-04-14 18:01
Both Americans just made roster changes. They definitely won't be flying to Europe when they don't even have strats yet. Both teams are currently working on building a strong default and building up team chemistry. You won't see them in Europe until after ESEA LAN.

GSL format gets really weird when it comes to 3 teams. Their first match will only be a worth a chance to take a beating by NiP/Titan.
2014-04-12 22:39
where I can see all the line up?
2014-04-12 22:39
This site says that raalz is playing for 3DMAX, not nille. Is this true?
2014-04-13 15:07
Yes.
2014-04-13 15:15
Didn't he quit and Nille joined instead ?

Didn't know i'm a team.
2014-04-12 22:46
Honestly they should just let group A and B to play in a normal group stage format. NiP and Titan should play 2 matches just like VP, fnatic and the others. Sure they are probably easy matches but it helps them get used to the tournament site and warm-up for playoffs.

2014-04-12 22:48
group stage matches are going to be boring
2014-04-12 22:49
Surprise, surprise. No Courage.
2014-04-12 22:49
Courage dropped their team, the players might not want to pay everything themselves.

2014-04-12 22:54
ye buddy!
2014-04-12 22:54
There is no chance for Danish teams... It will be easy for: NiP, Titan, VP, fnatic, dignitas, LGB, LDLC etc. win group stage, there is no way how to beat them with Danish teams. I dont know why is there so many teams... And VP got it!:3
2014-04-12 22:56
No Titan will fail...
2014-04-13 06:08
It's the biggest lan tournament in Denmark and we have a pretty massive scene, there is usually always a lot of teams going there, not that they expect to beat any of the big teams or win the tournament, but atleast have a shot. Danish scene have always been supportive of danish lans, if not competitively then it's to have fun and meet eachother and hang out as mostly 99% of them know eachother / are close.
2014-04-13 12:35
You do know that Dignitas is a danish team aswell right? so what you said is that danish teams wont win, but 1 danish team does have a big chance of winning? :3
2014-04-13 13:17
Of course that i know that Dignitas is Danish team, they have big chance to win. I mean other Danish team, of course that Dignitas will have big chance to win it, specialy at homeland:)
2014-04-13 18:39
extremly pointless to watch groupstage
2014-04-12 22:56
i plan to go fishing. friday 14pm for the playoffs
2014-04-12 23:05
can someone explain me the playoffs ? 15 x 2 = 30 teams for a bracket of 32 teams ? so, nip and titan ( seed 1 + 2 )(if they finish first of their group) still have a favor in the bracket ?

No Na`Vi, no HR?! CPH GAMES=SHIT
2014-04-13 03:07
The original Na'Vi lineup (with Markeloff) had problems with CPH admins. CPH games cleared that Na'Vi and HR were both invited to play but they decided not to come.
2014-04-13 08:12
I know the whole story.
2014-04-13 13:12

2014-04-13 13:18
