Groups for TWC Main EU quals. out

The groups and format for TWC European Main Qualifiers have been revealed.

After two initial rounds which determined eight of the sixteen teams participating in the main qualifier stage, E-frag.net have released the groups and schedule for the last phase of the qualifying process.

Four groups of four teams will kick off the competition with a best-of-one GSL format where the decider matches will be played as best-of-threes. The teams that manage to finish their group in the first two places will advance to the single-elimination playoffs.

The losers of the semi-finals will play a best-of-five third-place decider match in order to determine the last team that will qualify for the finals in Belgrade, Serbia.

Group A Group B Group C Group D
