PGL Major 2017 Krakow first round match ups drawn

After four days of intense play at the PGL Studios in Bucharest, Romania, the eight Challengers have earned their spots at the Krakow Major. Following the end of the qualifier, the match ups for the first round of the Major have been drawn.

A four-day Swiss stage has given us eight teams, the Challengers, that will join the top eight teams from the ELEAGUE Major in Atlanta, the Legends, at the PGL Major which will take place in Krakow, Poland, on July 16-23 at the Tauron Arena, and that will feature a prize pool of $1,000,000.

mouz and F3 both made it through the Main Qualifier

Out of the qualified teams, there are some returning to a Major, like G2, the ubiquitous FlipSid3, or mousesports—although with Major rookies like Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný or Robin "ropz" Kool—, Cloud9 returning after missing the ELEAGUE Major in Atlanta, and newcomers like BIG, PENTA, Vega Squadron, and Immortals. Meanwhile, teams like OpTic and HellRaisers failed to make it to the big event.

The teams that will be present at the PGL Major in Krakow are therefore:

Legends
Denmark Astralis Poland Virtus.pro
Brazil SK Sweden fnatic
CIS Natus Vincere Kazakhstan Gambit
Europe FaZe Denmark North
Challengers
Europe mousesports France G2
Europe PENTA United States Cloud9
Germany BIG Russia Vega Squadron
Brazil Immortals CIS FlipSid3

Shortly after the qualifier finished, the first round Swiss system matchups for the PGL Major Krakow 2017 have been drawn.

We will see the following matches at the start of the upcoming Major:

Denmark Astralis vs. Brazil Immortals
Poland Virtus.pro vs. Russia Vega Squadron
Sweden fnatic vs. CIS FlipSid3
Brazil SK vs. Europe PENTA
Kazakhstan Gambit vs. Europe mousesports
CIS Natus Vincere vs. France G2
Europe FaZe vs. Germany BIG
Denmark North vs. United States Cloud9

The past don't mean a thing. The only chanse c9 have is that it will be a BO1, and they have B01 upset potential, but only if North fks up the pick/bann. We will see what happens.

It seems that you do not understand anything about Brazil even in? We only have the largest reserve of freshwater in the world beyond the Amazon: D corruption exists in several countries and this will be resolved is a matter of time. Agua potavel here has always had and will never be a problem, if I dig my floor here at home I will certainly find a puddle of drinking water to use until my death ..

Yes, this random team will beat the best team in cs go history right? Keep dreaming. You're just jealous Brazil owns the scene. No respect for the them, but they always shut up the haters like you. Once again, SK will win the major. Easiest win ever
2017-07-03 13:57
Sk werent even challanged in the two majors they won since they played navi (with injured guardian) and liquid (lul). Sk wont win this time too many good teams.

Yes, but they don't have any experience in Majors.. I don't know how to say in English, but when they need to hold a little and take a breath, it will weight in their minds. They are a new team. Different from SK when they were LG, they were already coming playing on cs 1.6 together, not all of them
2017-07-03 00:13
I think you have a really good team and really have a chance, but your tournaments were tier 2 tournaments, so it's not a fair comparison.

How ? Just tell me how . How can BO1 "favors" PENTA against SK ? Doesn't matter if it's BO5,BO3,BO1 or even 1 round of a map, they all "favor" SK. Ofc, PENTA can win against SK. But does it "favor" ? NO.

It's technically meant to be... The first round of the swiss system is seeded into two groups - it's legends vs qualifiers.

To become legends they need to beat better teams
2017-07-02 23:33
I think the Swiss format makes the championships very random. In the same way that you find it difficult for challengers, I think it can make it easier. All games of the group stage are BO1 and they can be lucky enough to pick up an equal or weaker opponent in the draw.

Their is a fine line between believing in your favourite team and being an outright retard. Then there are VP fans like yourself who do both
2017-07-02 23:26

It's so early to even know this and + g2 have been in better form by a landslide... We don't even know the map. "In a bo1" this means just as easily g2 could beat them right back... And therefore other teams could beat other teams that are favoured against them just as easily by your logic like Penta on SK for example

First, name tier1 teams. Nip? Optic? Liquid? EnVy? They all worse or equal then Vega for example, not much stronger, and they have no chances against Gambit on LAN. Second, do you really want another one tournament with 2015's roasters? There are 3 new teams on major, that is really cool. Third, about teams again. We all know EnVy sucks now, just like Optic. Liquid lose all their games with teams that qualified, so its pretty honest. So without this 3 teams we have all HLTV top-16 and some new faces that played all the time since last major, and played well. So whats the problem?

How would valve even have time to implement stickers, set up the fantasy team game, and have people buy the stickers in 2 weeks time?

Fnatic??? 10/10 legends... For sure they will make it
2017-07-03 11:55
That's the crazy thing though, anyone can beat anyone at this tournament. In bo1s, I think a team like PENTA can beat a top 10 team given the right scenario.

The people who are the victor of Vega with VP must have a really sick head VP are back, last win Adrenaline Cyber Cup. They are playing better and better, they have specially developed a form for this major
2017-07-03 13:46
virtus pro its a major in poland whats gonna happen
2017-07-03 14:08
fnatic in almost every major they will go to playoffs
2017-07-03 14:15
It's time for the North American teams to go to Brazil to play, not the other way round. NA CS is so terrible.
2017-07-03 14:16

This is my predictions: Australis vs Immortals Australis is of course the favorite here. they won the last major and are a pretty solid team. I myself think that the Australis era is over and Faze and SK will take over that. Immortals had a strong comback on cobblestone against Godsent in the qualifier tho. I think they will lose this match but they still get to the playoffs. Virtus pro vs Vega squadron VP is among the top 10 teams in the world and I am sure they will get to playoffs. Vega qualified 3-2 and they are gonna go out 0-3. . They got some easy matches of course in the major qualifier and I dont think they deserve the major spot. Fnatic vs Flipside 3 Fnatic is the favorite here and i think they will take this one. But F3 can suprise. It can surely happend. I think it is a 50/50 chance of Fnatic getting to playoffs. SK vs Penta SK is the best team in the world in my opinion and i think they have a good chance winning the major. Penta is a good team from the europe scene but SK is way out of their league. Penta could still get to playoffs. Gambit vs mousesports This is a close match but i think Mouse will take this. I think mouse will qualifi for playoffs but for Gambit it is 50/50. Natus Vinecere vs G2 Another close match. I think the frenches will take this one but booth teams will get to playoffs. Faze vs Big Hehe, you can see I am a Faze fan but i think most people agree Faze will take this. But Big is a good team and they could suprise. It is also a chance they will get to playoffs. North vs Cloud 9 The only NA team in the major, it is sad. But this is a 50/50 match. I think C9 are going to take this but north also has a good chance. Of any of the teams getting to playoff I have no idea. Just comment if you disagree or agree and i will reply.
