Why did they put 3/4 of the top four in one group. swap nV/VP/NiP with Navi/TSM and the groups would have been better.

LOL WTF One of the worst group draws ever! Three of the four best in one group, plus the two Ukrainians on the same other group!! Terrible! Just switch Virtus with Na'Vi and it's all good.
