Main Qualifier round two match-ups

At the end of day one in Atlanta, ELEAGUE drew the match-ups for round two of the Swiss format.

With the first round of the Main Qualifier coming to a close, the sixteen teams were split in half into two pools, eight with one win and eight with one loss.

Teams with the same win-loss record will be facing each other in the second round, which will be played tomorrow in its entirety. 


FaZe and OpTic to lock horns in the second round

Tomorrow's matches and provisional schedule are following:

16:00 United States CLG vs. Australia Renegades
17:15 Europe mousesports  vs. Russia Spirit
18:30 Sweden NiP vs. Europe HellRaisers
19:15 France G2 vs. France Envy
20:30 Brazil Immortals vs. Russia Vega Squadron
21:45 Sweden GODSENT vs. Denmark Dignitas
23:00 China TYLOO vs. United States Cloud9
00:15 Europe FaZe vs. North America OpTic
OpTic v FaZe yet again haha if IMT chokes this qualifier yet again they should disband lmao, vega squadron in 2nd match Rough day for NA but the matchups are fair to be able to bounce back, Cloud9 should win, CLG sux rly hard but at least has a chance against RNG, OpTic should be favored against FaZe

Oh G2 - Envy, means 1 of the 2 will be at 0-2 (capt. obvious here). If it's G2, they might comeback and go through with 3-2 streak. If Envy, then GG, no Major for them and then KennyS and Apex can come to G2 with RPK and Smithz walking to the other side.
2016-12-16 01:12
ikr, a MAJOR qualifier and they put 2 teams from the same country against each other. also two of the "better" ones. not saying they are world-class, but either of those 2 deserves to play for example renegades much more than CLG do.

It is very possible if they do not choke. They only lost because they choked against NiP but I dont see them choking in this tournament.
2016-12-16 06:50
I think you misunderstand the word choke. When a team that on average is A LOT worse than their opposition loses the game it is not a choke, it is as expected. I see the <3 HR but get real, if HR wins vs NIP it will be solely cuz NIP choked hard.
2016-12-16 08:28
#139
 | 
Switzerland Alpollo 
Yes but HellRaisers is not A LOT worse than NiP so it is a choke.
2016-12-16 17:12
But they are, they only have a chance if angel has one of his godlike games, but that happens at most 1/10 times. A choke is when the favorite team loses, only a huge HR fanboy can ever call them a favorite vs Nip. Realistically it's at least 80/20 if not 90/10 in NIPs favor.
2016-12-16 18:02
#141
 | 
Switzerland Alpollo 
I never called them a favorite. Realistically its 65-35. I watched the HellRaisers vs NiP games I know they can win. So if a choke a fav team losing what is winning 9-1 and then lose 10-16 called then? If a Team is leading 9-1 they are definetly the favs to win the game so its a choke if they lose 10-16 in the end.

"Realistically it's at least 80/20 if not 90/10 in NIPs favor." -RealEssin 2016 hahahahaha you are so badddddddddddd. EZ WIN!
2016-12-16 19:55
Lol, shows up after game to gloat, shows how old you are. NIPs 2 ill players underperforming hard, not that surprising tbh. Still doesn't change anything about what I wrote. And a choke in game is of course a team leading big losing that lead. A choke pre game is a heavy favorite not beating the underdog. Anyone can win a BO1, renegades 16-0 SK, doesn't make them better or even favored in that matchup either. And if u call an overtime win a EZ win, then that says a lot how little you really expected them to win.

Yeah blame it on the 2 players. Yes I know its a b01 everyone can win but your comment with 90/10 or 80/20 is wrong in so many ways. And yes I never thought HellRaisers wins this and that EZ Win was a joke.
2016-12-16 23:09

G2 and envy are from the same seed, how can they meet each other? can someone explaine pls? :| pbs.twimg.com/media/CzwZmwiXAAAMQoH.jpg
2016-12-16 01:32
Well noticed
2016-12-16 01:33
IMT and vega also in the same seed, and they meet each other. i really need explanation for this :| so confusing
2016-12-16 01:37
Maybe HLTV pointed it out as a rule, but ELEAGUE is not following it
2016-12-16 01:38
:-O
2016-12-16 08:49
"Teams with the same win-loss record will be facing each other in the second round, which will be played tomorrow in its entirety." It's unavoidable due to the way the swiss format works. Immortals are also in the same issue.
2016-12-16 01:39
It is avoidable though... g2 plays c9 instead and Tyloo plays nV, or visa versa. IMT plays NIP, Vega plays HR etc.
2016-12-16 01:45
so hltv missmatched their games?
2016-12-16 01:47
No, Eleague did the draw so its on them
2016-12-16 01:47
yeah, i was checking eleague minute ago. So the admins probably dont knwo how the swiss system works. lul
2016-12-16 01:51
Seems that way, perhaps RLewis or someone from Eleague will come out and verify it eventually
2016-12-16 01:52
its such a missleading info for teams, they are already preparing for these games. sad for them
2016-12-16 01:54
ELeague wont be changing that tho, sadly. would make them look retarded. hoping to see both of the french teams qualify, one of them with 3-2 to make the ELeague gringos mad.
2016-12-16 01:59
i guess they fucked up qualifier draw even last time and they changed it afterwhile
2016-12-16 02:05
asked lurppis on twitter and he said to me that this "teams from the same seeding pool cannot face each other" rule was in place only during the first draw. EDIT: still fighting tho, gonna spam em gringos till they change the sh** lol #12yo
2016-12-16 02:19
yeah, i sent it to rlewis
2016-12-16 02:22
I am blocked by him since the choking drama lul
2016-12-16 02:23
ahahaha
2016-12-16 02:24
rlewis always blocking everyone, weird that u not get blocked XD
2016-12-16 02:26
messioso also give the same answer : twitter.com/messioso/status/809563964950.. so case closed :| but honestly i still hate that draw, they look like want a huge viewers :(
2016-12-16 02:25
wow
2016-12-16 02:36
The rule is only for the first matchup, after that it is completely random dram from all teams that have the same record. This is how the system works, this is how they did b4 last qualifier. Nothing strange or wrong.
2016-12-16 08:39
So you got the rule explained, and correctly. But you are still fighting because? You don't like the rule? Or you are too proud to recognize that you were wrong?
2016-12-16 08:41
nah +1, dunno how eleague do that fuckin draw :\
2016-12-16 01:50
isnt it avoidable? we dont know how they draw the matchup, but if they draw the team from the same seed, should it be cancelled? so how can they choose the higher seed team when theyre from the same seed? really need to see the rules :|
2016-12-16 01:47
it is avoidable, waiting to see whether they come up with something or just act blind and deaf and leave it the way it is rn. so dissapointed to see two teams from the same country playing each other so early on.
2016-12-16 01:50
yeah its so disappointing, meanwhile on the otherside, clg opponent's is renegades :| eleague should explain this draw, and how they do the draw :|
2016-12-16 01:53
How does someone explain a draw? It is in itself random. Eleague has done everything right, just some hltv kids that can't understand the rules of the format.
2016-12-16 08:43
did u read that pic? "from there on, EACH ROUND will see teams randomly matched up who have the SAME RECORD but are from THE OTHER SEED POOLS until THEY REACH 3 WINS or 3 LOSSES" so its understable that many people will questioning the rules and the draw and ask for explanation
2016-12-16 09:10
Seeding after first round, then it is not using the system correctly. My guess is that HLTV made a mistake when they wrote that, makes no sense at all to seed after first game. But I can see the confusion then.

why are G2 and NV facing each other? it is said teams from the same seed CANNOT face each other unless UNAVOIDABLE. since this is 2nd round with half of the teams having the same score as NV or G2 do (thus 0:1) it does not seem very unavoidable to me.

So basically they pulled the strongest winners against each other and the weakest winners against each other. Some sort of seeding in that phase should have beeen used too. It should be so that 3-0'ers get continuosly thougher opponent. Now, for example, NiP/dignitas/Optic/FaZe get to play against Immortals, C9, Vega or TyLoo in 2-0 situation, which is completely stupid.
2016-12-16 13:33
g2 or envy will be 0-2 and immortals or vega squadron will be 2-0 after today LOL

As I told here. HR is always a problem for NiP. If I call it correct, They cost nip a lot on esl esea pro league season 1,2 too. And you heard t here first that NiP will not be able to make it to major too.
