MLG Columbus groups A & B out

Striker
March 10th, 2016 22:29

The first two groups of MLG Columbus 2016 have been announced via the organizer's Instagram page.

Rarely do we see groups being announced in parts, but it seems to be the case for MLG Columbus 2016, as MLG have started announcing the groups two at a time on their Instagram page.

So far groups A and B have been announced. The groups have to follow the seed pools, which have been decided according to the team's placing at the previous major, DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, and the main qualifier.


Hiko's Liquid will face FaZe, fnatic and SPLYCE in group B

Whether the groups were drawn randomly or not has not been revealed, but here are the first two groups for the next major, taking place in Columbus, Ohio from March 29th-April 3rd.

Group A Group B
Sweden NiP Europe FaZe
Brazil Luminosity Sweden fnatic
Germany mousesports  United States Splyce
Ukraine FlipSid3 United States Liquid

Eight more teams are still waiting to find out what their groups will be:

Pool 1 Pool 2 Pool 3 Pool 4
France Envy Poland Virtus.pro  France G2 United States CLG
CIS Natus Vincere  Denmark Astralis Russia Gambit  United States Cloud9

Remember that teams from the same pools cannot meet each other in the group stage.

The remaining two groups will be revealed via MLG's Instagram tomorrow, so stay tuned to HLTV.org as we will keep an eye on the coming announcements.

2016-03-11 14:30
fnatic in weakest form >> FaZe, SPLYCE, Liquid
2016-03-11 15:01
hello mr ruski yest, faze isnt na you morron
2016-03-11 22:34
It's not possible, since no NA team made out of the groups in the last major.

Ez for LanJ
2016-03-10 22:32
spunJ isnt in this major fool
2016-03-11 02:41
but he was talking about ChrisJ
2016-03-11 04:52
Both are so bad with the awp you could just change them up midgame and no one would notice.
2016-03-11 05:59
damn I remember when Skadoodle went on seang@res PC during LAN and got that 4k for him ayyy lmao
2016-03-11 06:00

2016-03-10 22:36
Thats not even possible, but nt retard.
2016-03-10 22:38
switch clg/gambit cuz navi always have clg :D
2016-03-10 23:09
Also switch VP and astralis because c9 and VP always in the same group
2016-03-11 02:45
Impossible, CLG and NaVi are always in the same group
2016-03-10 22:38
They said the same thing about Navi and LG. But it has been broken!!!
2016-03-10 23:12
g2 AND gambit + CLG and cloud 9 in diff groups
2016-03-10 22:40
they wont put c9 and CLG in the same group..
2016-03-11 00:22
You got group C almost right, except for Gambit ;) Good Job.
2016-03-11 03:57
Luminosity and Na`Vi in not the same group, dislike

Mousesports have hard group :/ Really like that team.
2016-03-10 22:30
well. mouz could have beaten fnatic and lg in katowice but choked both matches away.
2016-03-10 22:32
Look at fnatic's group... Couldnt admins put 1 na team in group A? 1 eu team in group B, to even it up? No?
2016-03-10 22:34
LG = NA/SA
2016-03-10 22:40
lg = brazil they dont affiliate with the garbage up north
2016-03-10 23:06
Hilarious coming from the dude with the Mexican flag lmao
2016-03-10 23:08
LG likes living in the sort of isolated city they're in, and are very friendly, polite, and funny, to all of us NA tards. Except if you say something racist about their: language Cold and Fallen play matchmaking, even arms race sometimes and inevitably ran into a few douche-bags saying something about their "spanish". Fer is so funny, he could be comedian if he quits CS. #lgloyal
2016-03-10 23:21
Lg represents NA and SA... they r brazillians but play for NA organization...live in US... thats no problem at all americans cheers for them like we cheers... and im sure they really like people of US.. its not just cuz they live there... and if they win the major... im sure a lot of muricans will enjoy too...
2016-03-11 13:18
yes...ty, my friend. I know Lg is pride of Brazil. Thank you for understanding many of us in NA are also very proud. Lg are good guys and I think they like everyone except bigots. Many people around the world will celebrate if Lg wins a major, myself included.

wtfff is this group man!!! fnatic ezest group ever! worst pool 1, worst pool 3, and pool 4 wathever... group 1 too hard.. scared ;(
2016-03-10 22:51
Favela, the pools don't matter until they draw.
2016-03-10 23:20
It's definitely possible. Look at their opponents: Flipsid3: Definitely possible to beat them. NiP: Not that hard to beat if mouz are just prepared for the new nip strats (which have been really easy to read and counter, it's basically all on NiKo here) Luminosity: ok no chance if they are on form, just small upset potential so yeah, they definitely have a chance imo
2016-03-11 00:23
not so sure if NiP's strats are easy to read bro and mouz has beaten them only once on LAN, at IEM Katowice, and it was on mouz's best map
2016-03-11 05:31
NiP's strats are basically mindless CT aggression, usually not much more. Have you watched any of their newer games on LAN apart from Katowice? Really nothing special. I agree it'll still be hard for mouz though.
2016-03-11 08:19
Mate, you got it all wrong.. If you think its easy to counter their strats, why did Navi (starix in team!) had difficult time against them? NiP also played very well vs Fnatic. Dont think NiP is at their slump before as VP now. NiP surely bringing something out.
2016-03-11 09:02
Yes, they did well against fnatic but still NiP didn't make it out of the groups despite a lot of bootcamping. If a team spends a lot of team inventing and practising new strats and then uses them all in a game, the game shouldn't be close and won by their opponents, actually there's hardly an excuse not to win it. Just my opinion, feel free to disagree.
2016-03-11 09:19
Well same goes for Mousesports. They only depend on 1 person- Niko. How much can 1 person do? IGL, Top fragger, entry fragger, awper, rifler, supporter, lurker. Basically he does everything by himself. What if he sucks, not on his form?
2016-03-11 09:21
I have to disagree. Yes, mouz heavily relies on individual performances but ChrisJ and nex have delivered a lot of those in the past. nex has probably been the best german pro player for a while. But yeah, it's gonna depend on their form on that day X. But if they're on form, they'll destroy their opponents.
2016-03-11 09:24
nex...? Em, heh, you've seen his and dennis performance lately? Also chrisJ missing alot of shots. Check katowice. Fact they got so far was due to niko singe carry. Even when it was 14-7, they still choked. Spidii is playing better, yes. But nex, dennnis and chrisJ were underperforming (especially nex)

Yes, i Think Nip Will make it through, but i have to agree with you. Mouz can definitely make it out of groups as 2nd seed and it would not even be an upset. The only thing I think can hinder them I their form. Mouz is a team that has their up periods like iem but sometimes they crash down like when gob-b left the team. It depends on what mouz shows up.
2016-03-11 10:22
This group its very dificult for everyone.. LG is the bigdog...but i can see Nip and Mousesports beating LG in best of 1.. in best of 3 i think lg has more map pool... but its hard anyway...
2016-03-11 13:20
I think LG should win this group easily. They usually don't fail against lower tier teams and they've been extremely strong the last few months.
2016-03-11 14:29
mindless CT aggression? it looked very very good against VP I have to say. Also Katowice is the only LAN they've been to this year so far
2016-03-11 09:10
I belive in NiP just because it's a major, NiP always plays better on majors!
2016-03-11 11:33
you mean Nikosports

They could have gotten one of them but not all 3 (since every group has two teams which were at least in the quarters last major) so still ez way to quarters
2016-03-10 22:37
Ofc, but instead of Faze they could've gotten Na'Vi or nV. The lower seeds i'm not worried one bit about either way, except maybe an onfire G2.
2016-03-10 22:38
nV are worse than faze now...worse than faze!!!

based on their shape its a very hard group for them.
2016-03-10 22:32
the only better team from their seed group would have been fnatic. For the remaining 2 teams they could have had g2, gambit, c9, clg, splyce or liquid. Mouz is probably better than all except g2 and f3 is on par with the rest or better. So please stop the easy group bs.

i aern't think that
2016-03-10 22:32
faze is the best choice from their seed. mouz vs nip, mouz have a chance.
2016-03-10 22:37
I really like mouz and think they can beat nip...LG, not so much though. Think LG will crush 'em.
2016-03-10 22:50
I've never said they will beat LG, they will just qualify from the second place. same for TL.
2016-03-10 22:53
Imma stupid, I guess. Didn't know there was two teams to make brackets from each group. I definitely "are think that" now. :) Go mouz/liquid. :)

i think liquid v mousesports wudda been easier than liquid v faze
2016-03-10 22:39
Mousesports isn't legends. Every groups has 2 legend team and 2 challengers
2016-03-10 22:48
It could've been like Faze/Vp or Nip/Vp, definitely couldve been easier, but I think MLG was trying to get liquid out for the NA crowd to have someone to cheer for.
2016-03-10 22:41
Nah, VP always rekts NA teams, same for NiP. Ik that VP has been shit recently but they always shows up at majors, even when they had a terrible form few weeks ago. Same for NiP. I hardly see any of them going out in groups (except if they have huge internal problems)
2016-03-10 22:51
Last time VP played liquid liquid absolutely destroyed them, VP was without snax, but they're definitely not invincible to NA teams, and they were actually on decent form at the time. It just so happened that when c9 was good they struggled against them and they haven't played clg much and liquid hasnt been good for very long, VP's anti-NA streak isn't something about the team it's just by chance. People keep saying that VP will show up next tournament and it keeps not happening, I don't really think they'll show up at the major myself honestly. There's been something fundamentally wrong with the team lately, they've been playing scared CS, and even though NA teams are pretty weak if you give them that scared play they will capitalize and take you out.
2016-03-10 22:57
We'll see, though i totally disagree with you. VP always had terrible online performances, sometimes worse than right now. IK they lost to liquid at san jose though as you said it was with michu and this tournament had low importance. VP is the kind of team to throw/not go 100% when they don't care . they knew playing without snax would be a bother and if they'd loose to liquid, they would've have free 3 days vacation in NA(just look at picture they posted just few days after their elimination, they seemed to have a lot of fun and couldn't care less about this IEM)
2016-03-11 07:16
The last time VP played Liquid, VP absolutely rekt them (16-6 and 16-8). Although it was the old Liquid lineup. So your facts are wrong. But I do agree that with the current form of VP and the new lineup of Liquid its possible for Liquid to beat VP.

Serbia whoa!! 
Its upto us to belive whatever we want,i think nip didnot renew his contract once his old contract expired.lurpiss also tweeted once saying that "allu also heard rumours about him getting replaced ".its all sugarcoated truth.same with pronax and seangares imo.we all knew they(not allu) were weak links in their teams,why would would they leave top teams to join tier 4 teams.pronax was probably forced to leave or he left himself becuz he knew he was dragging others down, i mean they were not getting outstratted they were getting out aimed.you can say whatever but 2015 was not too bad for nip they reached many finals and semifinals,but they couldnt win tournaments even though they were close to winning some.i would take that any day if alternative was to play in ence.but this is all my opinion.i didnt mean to say allu was weak link in nip, he was by far their most consistent player.probably some thing didnt work out for them with allu.
2016-03-12 11:51
Yeah. Maybe you are right. Also Allu would not fit all-swedish line-up with Threat so he could be possibly replaced.
2016-03-12 12:45

I think LG is the strongest one in that group. NiP maaaaaybe could beat them, but I feel like they'll breeze through groups.
2016-03-11 03:06
I agree, but it's like the "weaker" teams on their group, are better then the weaker teams on the other groups. They got the best seed 3 and seed 4 teams.

That's one of the easiest groups they could have gotten tbh. FaZe are probably the weakest "Pool 1" team. Sure Fnatic is hard, but they could literally have been put in a group with Fnatic and Envy, or Fnatic and Na'Vi. Then there's no chance.

2016-03-10 23:40
Liquid actually has a really good chance to get out of groups. They will lose to fnatic, but they have a good chance vs. Faze and Splyce. Also, if CLG gets into the same group as Gambit and Virtus pro I would also say they stand a chance to get out of groups because for whatever reason CLG plays a lot better on LAN. C9 we have no idea what to expect. It's likely they won't make it out of groups because they can't consistently put out good play, but their skill ceiling is so high they might pull of some stupid wins. Good luck to all teams :D

2016-03-11 01:53
I think Liquid or Splyce should've been in Group A instead of mousesports or FlipSid3, but these groups are still okay I suppose. As for the top 2 teams for each group so far, I think it will be: - Group A > 1. Luminosity, 2. NiP - Group B > 1. Fnatic, 2. FaZe or Liquid
2016-03-11 01:58
nip is doing better with threat and gonna beat mouz no doubt, but liquid or faze is hard to tell

A: LG, mouz B: fnatic, FaZe Honestly second spot for group A can go three ways. LG is clear favourite. B is easy to predict, cos liquid don't hold enough firepower without koosta and SPLYCE, well...
2016-03-11 03:37
Splyce WILL win the group. They will beat Fnatic move on to winners match vs Liquid and get out of groups.
2016-03-11 03:41
Don't forget that the final matches of the groups are played in best-of-threes, so I don't really see NiP losing to mousesports and going out in group stage (unless mousesports somehow beat LG in the opening game and then beat NiP in the winners match). FlipSid3 can upset as well
2016-03-11 03:46
Go back watching Naruto please , i dont see how NiP will win against mouse on bo3 really , tell me how they will ????
2016-03-11 06:59
haha, the one bo3 NiP had vs mouz in 2015, they won 2-0 also they have played 11 maps against each other and NiP won 9 of them
2016-03-11 07:05
bold prediction: LG will not get out of group stage. they are overyhyped!
2016-03-11 04:03

NiP fanboys please , NiP will be out in the grp stage , what signs of life man ? Victories over VP , VP sucks ATM , everyone is beating VP , victory over 4 man FAZE lmao , VICTORY over DDOSED Guardian hahahaha, nip fangays delsional like always , this nip will be out , wont make it to the quarters sry boys .
2016-03-11 06:57
It's quite true. NiP has managed wins over other tier 1 teams almost always because of some technical problems. But still they can show up I believe. They are pretty bad atm but they showed some signs of life recently. May be Threat calling has helped.

Actually I think Flipside have a good chance of passing that group. They're a kind of team that can antistrat any of those teams easily. My guess is this will be first major playoffs from f3. So my prediction is Group A: NiP, F3. Group B: fnatic, Liquid.

2016-03-11 11:14
Liquid can beat faze if they just ignore fox until the end Whether fox is alive or dead it is still like playing 5v4. The risk is if they turn to kill him early & someone else kills them from behind
2016-03-11 11:18
ez 1/4 final for Mouse if nip will underperform again :-D

What do you mean? Its the perfect group for Mousesports. NiP is very beatable, Flipsid3 is the weakest link in that group. I dont see them beating Luminosity, but otherwise its a very debatable group! Group B would be a bigger obstacle for them; Faze and Fnatic.

-FaZe +mouz = mouz easy qualification would be a better group
2016-03-11 12:38
I dont think you understand how the groups are done... Pool 1: Last major semifinalists Pool 2: Last major quarterfinalists Pool 3: Qualification winners from winners match Pool 4: Qualification winners from "losers" match Mousesports was in pool 3. Faze in pool 2.

C and D are certainly groups of death in comparison to A and B.
2016-03-11 12:20
True! Would be funny to see NaVi, Astralis, G2, Cloud9 in the same group :D

nV VP Gambit CLG isnt a bad group either.. I'd actually hope for NaVi VP Gambit Cloud9 nV Astralis G2 CLG those 2 groups would be probably the most even ones.
2016-03-11 12:48
True and would love to see Gambit/Cloud9 and G2 in the playoffs ;)
2016-03-11 13:09
Hoping that VP and G2 go in the same group! Would be just sad to see VP again in the playoffs, with the way they have been performing lately...

NiP will win this group easily. After that it will be tough.
2016-03-11 16:46
Easy for LG
2016-03-11 16:50
I want to see how will Gambit play against top teams
2016-03-11 16:54
FINALLY a group fnatic probably won't get out of
2016-03-11 23:23
Hopefully NiP can perform in this major. Prove they are still one of the best teams. rip fnatic.
2016-03-12 02:19
Luckily mouz has two coaches.... so np.
2016-03-12 10:22
These groups seem fairly balanced, at first glance. The seeding somehow managed to work out for MLG and Valve, despite it being a terrible system.
2016-03-14 19:20
RIP fantasy team since the games starts at 16:00 CET. Then I have to make the teams in the morning before work RIP!.
