Groups drawn for ESL One Cologne

Groups for the $250,000 event ESL One Cologne have been drawn.

With less than two weeks until the second major of 2014, ESL have drawn the groups for the tournament and the sixteen teams have learned their early fate.

They will battle for the $250,000 prize purse, and it looks like even getting to the playoffs will be a tough task for many of the world's best teams.

The runners-up at the two previous majors, NiP, will be challenged by HellRaisers and Richard "shox" Papillon's Epsilon in group A, while defending champions from Katowice, Virtus.pro, need to make it past fnatic, iBUYPOWER and dAT in group C.


The race for the trophy starts now as teams learn their first opponents in Cologne

Although not yet having officially signed with Cloud9, Spencer "Hiko" Martin & co. have been listed under the new name on ESL's page and they were paired up with dignitas, Titan and Australia's finest, Vox Eminor, in group D.

Natus Vincere, who lost to Norwegians London Conspiracy in the European qualifier, might get a chance at revenge in group C, the one group that features only one top8 finisher from Katowice - LDLC, as LGB disbanded in the meantime.

Group A Group B Group C Group D
Sweden NiP France LDLC Poland Virtus.pro Denmark dignitas
Ukraine HellRaisers Ukraine Natus Vincere Sweden fnatic United States Cloud9
France Epsilon Denmark CPH Wolves United States iBUYPOWER France Titan
India Wolf Norway London Conspiracy Russia dAT Australia Vox Eminor

As usual, the group stage will feature the GSL format and top two teams will advance to the single elimination best-of-three playoffs, although this time with the new map pool and map selection process.

ESL One Cologne will take place at Gamescom, Cologne, Germany from August 14th-17th and HLTV.org will be on-site to provide you with full coverage.

best group becuz 3 teams at same level with very strong teamwork and invidual skills :))
2014-08-01 20:36
iBP>Epsilon
2014-08-01 20:36
and Wolf>ALL
2014-08-01 20:36
It's the best group because it's going to have some of the best matches. dAT will have a rough time, but they certainly have the *ability* to upset any of those teams. Wolf we don't really know since we haven't seen them play this competition, but it a much, much smaller chance for them. Epsilon is doing a little better, but they're still the struggle bus team. They lose their first match, and they aren't going to get out of groups. iBP, on the other hand, have the ability to fall to a lower bracket and rally. It's much more of a tossup whether they'll get past groups than Epsilon. HR and fnatic are both good teams to watch. However, NiP being stronger than VP is actually bad for the group, because while VP has a chance of getting knocked out, there is no way NiP is. They're not losing to wolf, and even if HR beats them, they're not losing to epsilon (or wolf again, if they pull of a stunner and beat epsilon). That makes the group more predictable, and less fun to watch.
2014-08-01 20:38
WOLF > ALL
2014-08-01 20:43

Titan will surprise guys trust me..... Anyway it will be like Katowice that one team will play really bad like titan last time, i think it will be Dignitas but lets see

Group C so strong ;p;p GL Virtus.pro
2014-08-01 20:34
Holy shit, groupstage is going to be sick. Either HR or Epsilon won't make it out of groups, LDLC or CPH Wolves, fnatic or IBP, Titan or Cloud9...

its nice they have NiP, Na'Vi, Virtus, and Titan in all different groups... I believe those are the strongest teams.. although we will see.. I think C9 will make it out of groups.. IBP to have another shitty EU experience.. the rest is pretty obv.
2014-08-01 20:40
i wouldnt be suprised if titan would get out of group stage :X
2014-08-01 20:40
Nice!!! Every group has 3 teams that are expected to go throught to play-offs, so there's defenitly gonna be some disappointments. I think this is going to be a nice groupstage as well! :D
2014-08-01 20:40
not that easy to predict, anything can happen with bo1's

2014-08-01 21:21
well, if Vp has practiced cobblestone/overpass they can just veto nuke
2014-08-01 21:22
but imo VP will like to practice nuke instead of cobblestone/overpass because in 1.6 nuke was the second best map of G5 after train. So, they know the basics of that map and in GO they have played it not too much but on certain occasions... so practicing nuke is more preferable rather than completely two unknown/untouched maps...

u might be right, i just still think iBP has to break their so called curse to make it out of groupstages at a major, and i think they'll have a hard time making it through despite their recent results. (But ye as i said u might be right, and with swag on the team this time it might just happen)
2014-08-01 21:04

Fantastic groups... Looks like these were hand picked for maximum awesome. Every group has some sort of rivalry and/or LAN history... NiP-HR, Epsilon-HR, Na'Vi-LDLC, Na'Vi-LC, VP-iBP, VP-fnatic, Dignitas-Titan, cloud9-titan. My prediction : A : NiP, Epsilon B : Na'Vi, LDLC C : No fucking clue. D : Titan, Cloud9
2014-08-01 20:48

2014-08-01 20:48

2014-08-01 20:53
would be funny if Titan would crash out in groups again, which is possible if ex-coL could bring their A-game and dignitas would show their steady game.

I would change C to iBP + VP moving on, but aside from that I think your predictions are on point
2014-08-01 21:14
virtus not so stronk lataly, and i think new fnatic stronk lan
2014-08-01 21:16
Jesus, both NA teams have incredibly hard groups... Hopefully coL/c9 continues their good track record against French teams. Seeing how close all of the groups stages are in terms of skill just makes the whole BO1 thing look even more retarded.
2014-08-01 21:15
thats because any group is incredibly hard, this will be amazing to watch
2014-08-01 21:16
I agree it's gonna be amazing to watch, but I think BO3 is the way to go for a tournament of this magnitude. Two BO1's and out leaves too much to chance.
2014-08-01 22:21
replied too fast, ur right on the bo1 thing ofc. But I kinda like that it's just do or die
2014-08-01 22:24
Yeah that's one of GSL's strong points over round robin like at G3. The matches in the groups get increasingly important, and the very last one is a win and in, lose and go home situation.
2014-08-01 22:38
my personal prediction is that NiP or NaVi takes it!
2014-08-01 21:14
Hellraisers will beat nip, wolf will beat epsilon
2014-08-01 21:15
and after group stage a - Epsilon,NiP b - NaVi,LDLC c - Virtus.pro, IBP d- c9,dignitas

once again i don't understand the seedings ... NiP's group is way easier than 3th and 4th
2014-08-01 21:20
seedings are broken.. no german team here while mouz or PENTA should win this ez
2014-08-01 21:37
GROUP C IS SO HARD. DAT TEAM:((((
2014-08-01 21:24
is it bo3 in groupstage?
2014-08-01 21:24
nope, bo1
2014-08-01 21:24
that really sucks when its so much at stake :(
2014-08-01 22:03
Indeed, some teams will just go to cologne to play 2 maps. That sucks, especially for teams from India and Australia.
2014-08-01 22:59
actually imo, India and Australian team will have no problem in BO1 or BO3 because tbh they are weaker than other three teams of their group. So, not so much surprising for them but it will be very sad for two teams from these 6 (VP, iBP, fnatic, dignitas, c9, titan). Two teams which will not pass from these will be more disappointed with this BO1 system than Wolf and Vox.

I agree! They have already beaten Mousesports and ESG
2014-08-01 22:12

2014-08-01 22:37
Group B is way too weak. CPH Wolves should of been substituted in Group D with either Dignitas, Titan, or Cloud9 to balance it out.
2014-08-01 22:40
Why? CPH Wolves is on great level as well. Every group is equal.
2014-08-01 23:58
I don't think that "every group is equal".. I don't think CPH is weak at all, they got great play and skill on the team, but groups C and D just looks way stronger than A and B..
2014-08-02 01:59
group c d insane. I think we may see some upsets tbh.

Group C and D are bananas.
2014-08-01 23:04
Who is casting?
2014-08-01 23:04
Group C is truly a death group ! VP and IBP are very very strong, but new fnatic may give us some big surprises !!
2014-08-01 23:25
justin, azr, topgun and havoc play at the top of their game with spunj in the mix - voxe will cause upsets.
2014-08-01 23:31
They may choke like they did with 3DMAX.
2014-08-02 03:00

Who is Wolf from group a ? i never heard about that team
2014-08-02 00:02
Wolf is one kind of aNN1MaL. btw ur nick is good. "aNN1MaL". Still u don't know them?
2014-08-02 06:17

2014-08-02 00:52
TITAN, dont even dare , not come out of the group
2014-08-02 01:08
The group they are in, honestly it's not a shame to go out in group stages in that group.. Such strong teams..
2014-08-02 01:57
Easy group for wolf.
2014-08-02 01:24
Why are groups A and C so strong but B and D arent :F
2014-08-02 01:52
Many People keep overlooking VoxE. Keep in mind they ALMOST beat LDLC in Katowice. From the group look though its gonna be though. My tips would be: GA-NiP(Easy)+ HR GB- Navi and LDLC GC- Not sure atm. iBP have beaten VP at esea, but like a lot of people say, was it a fluke? or is the lineup working well? Roughly, I think VP and iBP, but dont expect this to be the right prediction since we don't what fnatic's new lineup can do at lan. GD-Hard one again. But don't underestimate VoxE with jks. VoxE and C9. Like what I said about group C. ANYTHING can happen.
2014-08-02 02:25
bb Wolf
2014-08-02 02:31
NiP might get surprised keep in mind that their record against hellraisers is not that impressive and they are playing against a player the continuously raped them in the past. LDLC have been giving us strong performances so i will easily go with LDLC + Na'Vi not to ignore cw but they were in a vacation all summer London Conspiracy might surprise. There is no #1 guaranteed in the group of death, All three teams have equal chances to place #1. The question is how will dAT impact the results? Personal opinion: coL and digintas are on the same level the only problem is coL's shroud and digintas semi-long vacation of counterstrike events. I expect titan to pass through this group if not, serious changes are coming to the belgium-french team.
2014-08-02 02:43
Woo, cannot wait. Group A and D are going to be interesting. Wondering if either Wolf or Vox can cause an upset.
2014-08-02 02:52
wolf will not. can't say about vox. wolf will seal the bottom of the table so that any team from group A can't be dropped. :P
2014-08-02 09:26
If they were gonna seed a team from the Euro qualifier (Na'Vi) into LGB's old spot why didnt they actually play the qualifer through to a final so they can actually get a winner for the spot. Sure Na'Vi is the highest ranked team from the qualifier but they also came through it by the skin of their teeth. Seems a bit retarded that they get the easier group draw by that metric.
2014-08-02 03:18
Go Wolf !
2014-08-02 05:33
NiP vs Wolf :3 EZ PZ
2014-08-02 05:44
