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|
Eight more teams are still waiting to find out what their groups will be:
|Pool 1||Pool 2||Pool 3||Pool 4|
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.
