Groups for ESL One Katowice

The group draw for ESL One Katowice has taken place, with the 16 participants having been drawn into four groups.

From March 12-15, 16 teams from all over the world will lock horns in the fifth community-funded major tournament in the history of CS:GO, with $250,000 up for grabs.

Eight teams - called legends - received direct invitations to the tournament after reaching the playoffs in the last major, DreamHack Winter, while the remaining participating sides - known as challengers - came from the offline qualifier that took place in Katowice two weeks ago.

Each group features two legends and two challengers, who will face-off in a double-elimination stage. The top two sides from each group will advance to the playoffs.


Virtus.pro won last year's Katowice major

DH Winter champions EnVyUs have been drawn alongside fellow countrymen Titan in a group that also features PENTA and LGB, while NiP, who will attend the event with Aleksi "allu" Jalli as a ringer, will take on HellRaisers, Counter Logic Gaming and the former KaBuM team, now known as Keyd Stars.

Virtus.pro, who won the last edition of ESL One Katowice, will have to fend off competition from Team SoloMid, Cloud9 and 3DMAX, whereas fnatic will tackle Na`Vi, Vox Eminor and FlipSid3 Tactics.

Below you can find the draw in full:

Very interesting groups overall, its hard for me to predict but I'll just do it for the lulz. (do note that this should not be taken for real, because its really hard for me to determine who should qualify 2nd) My Expectations for who will qualify: Very Subjective- (1st to qualify, 2nd) Group A: fnatic, Na Vi/Flipsid3 B: Envy, Titan/Penta C: NiP, (toss-up for 2nd) D: TSM/VP, TSM/VP

They got the easiest group, I don't know what people were expecting >_<
2015-02-27 01:44
Agree this is by far the easiest group they could have got. Navi are in a slump arguing about kicking starix, and flipside dont get to play with simple. Cant complain about fnatic because every group had to have one of the top 4 teams.
2015-02-27 03:13
I think Vox definitely has chance! They played well in qualies and if they play as well or better they can advance to quarters. I don't see any reason why not. This tournament could be the best one yet! Competition is so tough right now. To add: Fnatic or EnVy or any other team has not been dominant in resent times.
2015-02-27 07:57
Would say Group C is the easiest group

I actually think they have a great chance of passing the groupstage.
2015-02-26 22:48
Great chance ? Based on what ? LGB being atlest half as good team as Titan and envy ? Oh please your sentence doesnt make sense. Sure they have a chance. Everybody has a chance. But great ye sure man....

Titan is an overrated team with only one great player. KennyS can't carry them through everything. And LGB is a great team with lots of potential. Penta on the other hand is a bit hard to predict, having just changed their igl. But I think LGB has a great chance, you may not think so, but my sentence still made perfect sense.
2015-02-27 13:18
Nice!!! Go Keyd!!!!
2015-02-26 18:14
GG Keyd ! gogo :D
2015-02-26 18:21
They will not go to playoffs ;)
2015-02-26 18:42
They will go to playoffs ;)
2015-02-26 19:46
I'm sorry man. They wlll not. NiP 100% will go to playoffs, HR is much better than your team, and i think CLG is better too. Congratz for qualifying but that's all.
2015-02-26 19:50
NIP how the hell they always get the easy group. Jeeze. I hope HR and CLG upset them.
2015-02-26 18:14
exactly my thought...
2015-02-26 18:38
How dafaq you see group C as the easiest one...every top tier team get an "easy" group because they are top1 seed dumbass. In every group are 2 good teams and 2 decent teams.
2015-02-26 18:41
Because hellraisers are worse than flipsid3, lgb, 3dmax, maybe even penta and clg now and dont belong to the seeded group of top 8 that they are in because they have a much weaker lineup now. Thats how much of a dumbass he was :p

Hellraisers are like kriptonyte to NiP. They always upset then. I think group C is very wide. Nip #1, but Hellraiser, CLG and Keyd are very close and no one can predict the result. As a brazilian I hope KEYD beat CLG and HR. GL KEYD

Group A - fnatic and Na'Vi to go through. But Na'Vi will lose to flipsid3 and flip will lose to vox Group B - Frenchies through, PENTA will struggle with new player and LGB might grab an upset. Group C - Allu will destroy and NiP top. HR and CLG both get upset by KeyD who'll come 2nd Group D -Cloud9 to upset TSM and come 2nd to Virtus
2015-02-26 18:14
Virtus.pro is a very good matchup for c9. C9 defeated VP last two times they played
2015-02-26 18:39
well if its gonna be the same Virtuspro as last year in Katowice theres not much to think about imo :D
2015-02-26 19:04
TSM are obvious favourites but will they choke? Quite concerning tho :/
2015-02-26 19:18
@A UMM MATH? If NaVi loses to flipsid3 and flipsid3 loses to VOX, that implicitly means either flipsid3 or VOX advances.
2015-02-26 19:38
No: Fnatic wins against Flip and Vox (2wins 1 loss). Na'Vi wins against Fnatic and Vox (2wins 1 loss). Flip wins against Na'Vi (1wins 2 loss). Vox wins against Flip (1 wins 2 loss).
2015-02-27 02:52
TSM stronk mate C9 is shit
2015-02-26 19:57
doubt c9 will upset TSM with how they play since Hiko left, anything can happen tho.

I can't see TSM being upset in the group stage, that's usually they're strongest part of the tournament, it's the semi-finals were they choke. TSM is very good at beating worse teams than themself, they just can't keep up the same lvl as the elite teams when the play-offs start.
2015-02-26 21:22
RIP Penta
2015-02-26 18:14
Actually pretty decent groups!

They don't choke on lans, they choke in the semi's and to some extent in the quarters, the group stage is usually when they look unbeatable.

2015-02-26 20:08
Titan is garbage lol They rely solely on KennyS to get at least two frags a round so that they have a chance of winning. If Kenny even messes up a little off his peak, Titan lose :/
2015-02-26 23:18
KennyS also usually has bad results at Majors.
2015-02-26 23:30
he has bad results at majors?? hiko are you kidding me? I agree with Titan not passing groups tho.
2015-03-04 16:59
The only time KennyS has had below average ratings is at both majors last year.

2015-02-26 18:16
they had a tough group in cologne with hellraisers and epsilon which they actually lost against
2015-02-26 18:17
I thought it was basically agreed that they really shouldn't have lost to Epsilon, especially not in a manner that they did. NiP have never had to work really hard to make it out of groups, but still struggle with it all the same, which is hilarious.
2015-02-26 18:18
epsilon was quite good and underated in that time imo, they raped hr 16-0 before cologne too.

2015-02-26 18:17
Yeah c9 and 3dmax without allu so dangerous Kappa
2015-02-26 18:18
yeah, A is strong aswell. NIP again the easiest grup :) bo1, everything could happen in group A/D, one better match from C9 and VP could not pass a group stage.
2015-02-26 18:27
3dmax is the worst team at the tournament. cloud9 is bottom tier 10 and questionable but has potential. tsm looking super weak lately. i'd say d is easier than b and maybe even a and c.
2015-02-26 18:54
did you just say c9 is a tier 10 team? There is no team at this even that is tier 10, that doesn't even make sense. c9 is a tier 2 team.

2015-02-27 02:52
c9 always hardest group
2015-02-26 18:17
Rip cloud9 the only way they can win is if both maps are nuke
2015-02-26 18:17
and both sides are ct
2015-02-26 18:18
or d2 vs vp
2015-02-26 18:18
D2 vs VP or Nuke vs VP = C9 win Inferno or Mirage vs VP = VP win Cache = 50/50, both teams have solid Cache
2015-02-26 18:20
Actually they'll lost to TSM on Nuke, but they'll probably beat VP. The way they can advance is going out the lower bracket against VP.
2015-02-26 18:19
i don't think c9 gonna win TSM on de_nuke.
2015-02-26 18:23
ez to predict: navi fnatic envy titan nip hr vp tsm
2015-02-26 18:17
i think it's will be more like Envy and Penta cause CarryS can't do everything alone :D

I think B is stronger than D. Group D is more obvious - VP/TSM go through
2015-02-26 18:17
b is stronger only because they actually have 4 good teams, while d have 3dmax without allu they won't do any damage to vp/c9/tsm probably
2015-02-26 18:21
everyone mad cuz NiP NiP is so lucky that they got to final every major... right...
2015-02-26 18:17
no they are so lucky bc they get the easiest path to finals everytime...
2015-02-26 18:19
yeah they had to meet vp in semis m8
2015-02-26 18:21
yea so that 1 time they met a decent match in semis, hold on to that moment
2015-02-26 18:24
+1 They almost lost if it was not for friberg
2015-02-27 02:17
I can't hear your crying over how amazing it is that NiP managed to make the finals of all 4 majors. Edit: DHW 2013 semi: VG, the best team in the world at the time. VG favored Katowice 2014 semi: Dignitas. NiP favored ESL Cologne 2014 semi: LDLC. NiP were shit, but probably 50-50 odds anyway DHW 2014 semi: VP. NiP playing like shit, VP favored. Yep, they got so lucky to win all those semifinal matches.
2015-02-26 18:33
+1
2015-02-26 18:29
who said anything about it? im saying theyre lucky as fuck with these group draws. much easier to remain a tier 1 team when your organisation is getting hundreds of thousands of dollars every major from sticker money because you stay in legendary capsule. even with the easiest groups nip are always at the brink of dropping out.
2015-02-26 18:44
Short term memory much? Out of four majors, they were only "close" to dropping out of groups at the last one, DHW 2014. They went 2-0 at DHW 2013 and Katowice 2014, and beat HR 16-11 on the decider match at Cologne 2014.
2015-02-26 18:52
LOL NiP nearly dropped out of Cologne at every turn 2-1 in groups 2-1 in quarters, last two games were even 16-14 2-1 in semis 2-1 in finals NiP nearly drop out of everything. Only a matter of time before they slip too far and drop out before the finals.
2015-02-26 23:22
They only "nearly" dropped out of groups once out of four majors. This statement is in response to #284, which implied that NiP almost dropped out of groups many times.
2015-02-27 02:33
good thing u have all these swedes to back u up...
2015-02-27 02:22
I don't need their backup. NiP's record speaks for itself silly boy.

2015-02-26 18:18
Looking really nice :) I guess Na'Vi fnatic, EnVyuS, Titan, Nip & HR will be favorites for A,B,C. Though I expect one or two upsets. Group D is going to be scary! Who's replaced allu?

almost the worst they could possibly have had dude. they always either won or had close games with vp and navi but harder with the rest.
2015-02-26 18:42
Tbh.. The two weakest "legends" teams were definitely PENTA and HellRaisers, should be lucky LGB got one of those teams, even though i think HR would be a better fit. What ruins it is that Titan was the second team from "challengers". LGB has a really bad record against french teams. Not the worst group, but not the best either, for LGB imo.

Why does NIP always get put in the easy group :I
2015-02-26 18:21
i dont think this will be easy, KeyD and CLG are 2 pretty solid tier 2 teams, and this is a BO1 Format.. i dont think HR had chances so.. for me will be NIP and KeyD or CLG.
2015-02-26 18:23
"easiest" doesn't mean they will have no problems this is the easiest group of the 4.
2015-02-26 18:29
c9 always on the death group lolz
2015-02-26 18:21
Group D is hard but C9 cant blame the groups. I hope this isn't used as an excuse. If they had ended a little different, they'd still have to of beaten Na'Vi, Titan or HR.
2015-02-26 18:22
c9 wont make it out of groups...

2015-02-26 18:56
yes! Look at hr and clg. They are showing bad results now. Isn't it? And players from Keyd are not worse players from hr or clg. Ya, maybe clg is better, but not sure. If we will base just on experience, we can say, that hr is the best team. Angel has many years of playing cs. What's the problem?
2015-02-26 19:22
I don't know about HR but Keyd is better than CLG, no doubt At least on paper

Sad to see LGB didn't get either VP or Na'Vi in their group, the two top 1 teams they've always either had really close games with or won against ever since the old LC days. Some nextlevel anti-strats is required now.

2015-02-26 18:42
Is it so hard to make sure that there is as less teams of the same country as possible in the same group ? Honnestly, now on CS:GO seeds barely matter, they can afford to make things even regarding the countries. Example, swap NaVi for Titan (or Flipside) and groups are fine. Also, VP in the easiest group for Katowice, coincidence (these 3 teams almost never pass the groupstage)??
2015-02-26 18:43
ESL dont like france m80
2015-02-26 18:52
relax france, it will be fine anyway
2015-02-26 19:16
Pff, with these teams, you never now. Titan already managed to fail in groupstage and nV hasn't been great lately. The good side of it is, if miraculously the 2 teams pass the group, they won't risk a confrontation before the semi-finales.

I do not understand why you say the NiP group is the weakest , in the tier 2 HR are better than Penta , in tier 3 CLG is better than Vox and LGB , in tier 4 Keyd is better than 3DMAX and Flipsid3. Enough be funny to see this cry, group A and B with two teams without hope. Group C with three strong teams but one without any chance. Meanwhile in group C all teams have chances and can go toe to toe against NiP, I believe pass NiP> HR> Keyd = CLG
2015-02-26 18:45
The chances that Keyd advances are really high. People don't know what strats they have + it's random bo1. I would love to see them advance and play bo3s.
2015-02-26 18:46
HR are worse than penta and clg and lgb, vox we dont know enough about. we also dont know about keyd, but flipsid3 are the same level. youre the first person ever to cateogirze these teams into that many groups of tiers. they are all the same tier because a matchup between any of them is never more than 60/40 favored one way. no one remembers that hr was only good last year because of top 5 awper s1mple that is now long gone along with markeloff. hellraisers is probably only better than 3dmax at this tournament imo, but it's hard to know the level of teams we rarely see like clg and keyd.
2015-02-26 19:00
Well HR have been surprising us on major lans but the question now is can they prove us right again? especially with no s1mple to carry them anymore
2015-02-26 19:16
#388
 | 
Brazil woody77 
disagree with you on HR, although not the same as always, 3 players are still, if you look at the historical of recent matches they played on equal terms with several top 5 teams, while PENTA suffers defeat after defeat for unknown teams, for me the worst team after 3DMAX is the PENTA, say they are better than Vox, but as envy the love of his country that Vox has, I'm rooting for them, while in the case of CLG and LGB are evenly matched, but always times of NA complicate the group phase, LGB entered Qualify as a surprise and because of one game came out as a team "strong"
2015-02-26 19:18
HR are worse than penta even though penta lost their igl and HR won a Bo3 against them on LAN 1 month ago with less practise (they are bootcamping since like 2 weeks)? Btw there was a HR without s1mple and they did just fine. s1mple wasnt even carrying at the last major, look at the stats. Against c9 kucher had 1 kill more than s1mple on the scoreboard. Against fnatic ange1 and s1mple's score was tied. Against NiP they all sucked and underperformed.

Brazil woody77 
I believe that at no time Penta was better than the HR still think Keyd and Clg vying 2nd.
2015-02-26 20:17
i'd say that the match most decisive will be keyd vs HR, imo will pass nip+HR/keyd.
2015-02-26 19:05
Really interesting groups and even though you might have some clear teams to go through we will probably have some upsets since its bo1, right? Well balanced but could have switched one Ukrainian team with a French. Will be interesting to see all the underdog teams such as VoX, PENTA, CLG and 3DMAX. And of course to see if this NiP can make it through group, will not be easy for them if they have a rough start.

Serbia has team? Sorry but you are a joke, saying that Keyd has no chance against that HR is a team in decay, and against CLG also in botcamp them in NA players of Keyd defeated the CLG workout after workout, I see them weaker, but yes at the same level
2015-02-26 19:34

Group C is the easiest so NiP will just have a soft walk there. On the other hand the three other groups are really tough. LGB are really underestimated. Titan will come hungry and EnVy should be better than what we've seen online (shacky stuff). I don't see PENTA doing great after losing their IGL... I loved them though, I wanted to cheer for them :( I can't wait for all the matchups :D Really excited to see what NaVi have in store for this event!
2015-02-26 19:11
CLG more likely to go through than C9. Shazham too inexperienced. C9 need a Hiko or Skadoodle instead to get out of this group.
2015-02-26 19:12
All groups look fairly balanced, I can see all the teams beating each other with the exception of 3dmax maybe.

Honestly, I think it's wise to have Nip in the easiest group. When Nip plays, they always have the most viewers (don't have fact but I think its a fair statement). Which means when Nip plays, they raise a lot of money from advertising revenue. So as long Nip continue to have most viewers, they will always have the easiest way making the playoffs. But honestly the group isn't easy by all means.

2015-02-26 20:16
Definitely Group B is group of death. C could be the group of surprises, D results are known before even start and A should be Fnatic + Na'Vi but Flipsid3 has potential to upset
2015-02-26 20:17
I dont think NiP has an easy group to be honest. They have like 2 weeks to train with allu and there could be some communication issues especially on maps like nuke. HR is known for strong Bo1 performances and nobody knows how KeyD will play, they could suprise like they did against C9/Fnatic. CLG has shown that they can upset top3 teams, they could do it again. Overall pretty balanced groups in my opinion.
2015-02-26 20:19
Clg is the only non-euro team that might advance to the quaterfinals

2015-02-26 20:36
How do team flags work? I thought hr is a Russian org
2015-02-26 20:40
Majority of players. HR = CIS flag because Dosia and Flamie are Russian, Kucher and Ange1 are Ukranian, and AdreN is from Kazakhstan. Therefore, there is no majority.
2015-02-26 21:15
No easy groups . Gl for all . this will be gr8 tournament but i hate bo1 in groupstage its so random
2015-02-26 20:43
It ia interesting how everyone yells that is riged, but no one actually seem to check how the draft was made. gosugamers.net/counterstrike/events/260-.. First line is every legend who got to the semi finals. Second line is every legend who got to the quarters. Third line every team qualified with 2-0. Fourth line every team qualified with 2-1. So, lets be honest. First, there is no easy group. Who thought Penta would go through on DHW? Second, if it was, on paper only, rigged, probably a team would get a group with penta and 3dmax, who, again, on paper, are the less harmful teams. That being said, my prediction: fnatic/f3 nv/titan nip/clg vp/tsm Maybe we have no real surprise this year.
2015-02-26 20:46
The best Ukrainian team is HR. 1. Ukrainian Flamie 2. Ukrainian Kazah 3. Ukrainian Dosia The best logic.
2015-02-26 20:49
Group A - Fnatic - Navi but Vox can upset Navi. Group B - Envyus - Titan but LGB can upset Titan. Group c - CLG - Kabum - (F U Noobs in pyjamas...:P). Group D - Virtus.Pro - TSM - Cloud9 can upset any vp or c9

2015-02-26 23:17
Great group for Vox; they can easily place 2nd (fingers crossed for the fnatic upset, of course). LGB are in a bit of a difficult spot; I can see them beating Titan, but PENTA might be out of reach. Unfortunately, I don't see CLG making it out alive; on the plus side, I think Keyd have a good chance at 2nd. Then comes the wild card... VP are always solid on LAN, but I'm not sure they have what it takes to top the group. TSM has been pretty inconsistent since Aspen, and even there they didn't show phenomenal effort. I think Group D is somewhat up in the air. Overall, groups look really solid; no real group of death to be seen. Looking forward to it!

So people actually believe that tier 3 teams like penta, 3dmax and lgb is better teams than HellRaisers? Don't be silly. My shot on group C: Yes, NiP is favorites to make top placing in this group obviously and they are followed by, listen carefully now, HellRaisers. I give CLG and Keyd a slight chance tho to make an upset but some comments here are just silly
