Columbus groups C and D revealed

Striker
March 11th, 2016 15:37

The remaining two groups for MLG Columbus 2016 have been announced, as the other half of the teams learned their fate at the next major.

MLG have finished revealing the groups, which were based on seeding pools that depended on the teams' results at DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca and MLG Columbus Main Qualifier.

While at a major no group can be considered easy to any of the teams, but it seems that group D teams have received the short end of the stick, as it features Natus Vincere, Virtus.pro, G2 and Cloud9.


Ex6TenZ's G2 will fight Virtus.pro, Natus Vincere and Cloud9 for a spot in the playoffs

Group C, on the other hand, will offer two teams that are in the current top five of our world ranking, Astralis at number three and Envy as the fifth-best team in the world, joined by the improving CLG and Gambit.

From March 29-31, the following four groups will be played out at the upcoming major, MLG Columbus 2016:

Group A Group B Group C Group D
Sweden NiP Europe FaZe France Envy CIS Natus Vincere
Brazil Luminosity Sweden fnatic Denmark Astralis Poland Virtus.pro
Germany mousesports  United States Splyce  Russia Gambit   France G2
Ukraine FlipSid3 United States Liquid United States CLG United States Cloud9

2016-03-11 15:45
Gambit and Cloud9 were both in the same group in the qualifier. no chance they would have been in the same group at the major. if you'd remembered that you would have had a perfect prediction :P
2016-03-11 15:50
Actually it is possible. Titan and Ebettle were in the same group for Cologne qualifier and were in the same group in the actual tournament.
2016-03-11 16:22
oh really? that makes no sense either way i figure it would have been much more unlikely for them to be in the same group for both events
2016-03-11 16:24
That's what I thought before Cologne too. I guess the difference here is that in all the major before they used a random draw, I guess this time MLG used their brains and didn't do it randomly... Or they got super lucky and happened to make the groups pretty even.
2016-03-11 16:26
faze fnatic splyce and liquid, and then you say groups are pretty even. thats like the most uneven group ever :D
2016-03-11 16:36
How would you fix it?
2016-03-11 16:45
no youre right, overall, they had to sacrifice 1 group to make the rest moreless even. but then again they could have switched c9 with splyce IMO.

You cant switch splyce and cloud 9 tho
2016-03-11 17:22
lol, what would that be accomplishing?
2016-03-11 19:13
well, c9 > splyce anyday tbh. and that would balance out a bit in terms of even groups.

All group matches are BO1 except for the decider. I'd say there's a great chance that VP will lose 2 straight BO1's against those teams.

What? Where did they say that all matches except decider are bo1? Source plz? Or are you assuming it becuz of last major?
2016-03-11 15:53
majorleaguegaming.com/CSMajor Scroll down to schedule. I'm assuming they're BO1's since only 1 hour is scheduled between each match.

Yeah i think you are correct.wtf atleast losers matches shud have been bo3.
2016-03-11 16:06
it has always been like this as far as i can remember. They will probably use the same format as their qualifier(2 bo1s, winners & loserts -> bo1, decider -> bo3)

2016-03-11 16:56
VP will lose against G2, I call it.
2016-03-11 15:59
isn't everybody expecting that?
2016-03-11 17:24
no apparently not. The Shapers boy said that VP is better than G2
2016-03-11 17:59
the kid is a vp fanboy so its pretty obv why he said that

Back in cs 1.6 days they were beasts... now they're so freaking weak... they are going to lose every match OR they are going to enter in the plow mode and they'll make it to the semifinals. Mark my words, sometimes they're just unstoppable BUT I don't thinking it's gonna happen though
2016-03-13 09:24
G2 can beat VP on any shitty tournament, but on major VP will take it anyway. VP struggles regularly, but on big events they somehow always make it out of groups and it won't change in Colombus. 1.Navi 2.VP 3.G2 4.C9
2016-03-11 23:15
it smells VP fanboy over here *sniff* *sniff*
2016-03-12 00:11
they struggle against everybodies
2016-03-11 20:27
yep rip !
2016-03-11 15:52
VP and C9 can easily beat G2 in a BO1, it's happened before

So true. Everyone who isnt NA tried to glom onto the success of sweden, france, denmark, and poland. Truth is most of eu is a joke, uk is a joke, australia is a joke, sa was a joke until very recently. NA has 4 teams at the major, but we are considered the worst somehow. These kids have no intellectual honesty or perspective.

ez for frenchies
2016-03-11 15:38
If g2 don't get out of groups this time then they never will lol As for EnvyUs.. If they'll play as bad as in katowice they might as well go out against gambit.
2016-03-11 15:49
Except for the fact that G2 has the toughest group of them all. Group D is a group where realistically al teams could make it out if they play well. I'd even put G2 as the worst of their group. I feel like G2/Titan have always had some unfortunate group draws, consistently getting stuck into the toughest or second toughest group.
2016-03-11 18:41
G2 worst of their group? lmao... C9 has not shown anything since they lost sean. Not to mention the slump VP is in and G2 getting better.
2016-03-11 20:20
Could be, haven't been paying much attention to C9. And VP slumps regurarly, you can never count them out. I'll say 3rd place if C9 really is struggling like you say.

Unfortunately due to the stupid ass Valve random generator, teams can only ban 2 maps each. The map played will be randomly chosen from the last 3 unbanned maps in the pool.

LG is pretty good at mirage - probably their best map. Even fnatic doesnt want to play them at this map; a map where they used to make spectacular comebacks vs navi, astralis(back then TSM) and NiP(when they were probably top1/2 team in mirage).

LG ez group again - wins G2 has a chance for QFs
2016-03-11 15:45
what do you mean again? last major they were in the same group as Fnatic and they beat them, and the major before that they were on Envyus group they took envyus to overtime but lost, that was the major that Envyus won.
2016-03-11 18:00
saw new comment saw flag close
2016-03-11 19:39
so that's what you're using as excuse for when you say something retarded? good to know
2016-03-11 20:16
All of na out in groups again LG, mouz Fnatic, faze Envy, gambit Navi, Vp (bad but not worse than c9 or titan)
2016-03-11 15:45
Have you seen G2 recently? They look solid compared to when they went under the titan name. They have improved a lot in fragging and teamwork. VP in a big slump and G2 is getting better but I guess G2 has looked good before and still fucked up at a major.
2016-03-11 20:26
Yea as you said it doesn't matter. They're cursed like the Chicago Cubs or something. People hyping up the Cubs this year but they won't win the ws

With bo3 elimination. I like like those bo1 tbh, as long as nobody gets sent home after one.

2016-03-11 18:08
Groups B C are easy,we already know who is going to advance,D is easy only if VP perform. A is where all the surprises can be
2016-03-11 18:07
Group A shouldn't be too surprising. LG will likely come out on top. The question is really between NiP and Mouse. NiP can do really well or not show up. Mouse will be Mouse. I think you pretty know what they bring so it would be a matter of seeing if NiP is up to the task or not.
2016-03-11 18:17
Group A LG & MS Group B Fnatic & Faze/Liquid Group C Astralis & EnvyUs Group D NaVi & G2 (or VP, if they show up) I wish an NA team could make it out of groups, but not looking likely. Liquid may have the best chance, but only if they can beat Faze.

A: NIP & LG. B: Fnatic & Faze/Liquid. C: Envyus & Astralis D: Na'vi & G2.
2016-03-11 19:18
C: NV and Astralis (I would like to see Gambit go through but don't see it happening) D: Navi and G2/VP. G2 have the edge but can't count VP out in majors

2016-03-11 21:29
I think Group A or C might have upsets (NIP getting beat by mouse, or a weak NV getting beat by CLG [lol?]) but it looks pretty straight forward who's coming out of groups.
2016-03-11 23:05
i think mouz get the 2nd spot on group A, just no choke and good calls by NiKo.
2016-03-12 12:10
I have worries for Na`Vi, because: 1. it's groups 2. first matches are bo1 3. and only eliminations bo3(?)

I only see Liquid comming out of groups between all the NA teams. And that is if rain isn't feeling it, cause if rain is on form, no NA teams out of groups. Which is good, cause I wanna see good cs.
2016-03-12 03:11
Group A 1. Luminosity Gaming 2. Ninjas in Pyjamas 3. Mousesports 4. Flipsid3 Tactics Group B 1. Fnatic 2. Team Liquid 3. FaZe Clan 4. Splyce Group C 1. Astralis 2. Team EnVyUs 3. Counter Logic Gaming 4. Gambit Gaming Group D 1. Natus Vincere 2. G2 Esports 3. Virtus.pro 4. Cloud9
2016-03-12 03:27
I'm pretty sure Gambit will beat CLG, other than that a great projection

Another tournament for fnatic to win :)
2016-03-14 03:34
Group C hardest to predict if EnvyUs still bad. 3-way battle for 2nd
2016-03-14 12:53
G2 can do it! VP is going through a hard time, and Cloud9 is barely at the same level
2016-03-16 21:26
c9 still wont be able to beat the weakest VP ive seen since 2013
2016-03-16 22:36
if soembody 6 months ago say VP will be have huge problem to get out from group with team like -navi -c9 -ex titan? i will kill him with laught
