StarSeries round three matchups drawn

After the last two matches of day two at StarSeries came to a close, Starladder drew the matchups for tomorrow's round three, which will see two teams advance and two teams get eliminated.

Day two in Kiev began with an upset in the form of TYLOO defeating fnatic 2-0, with Virtus.pro later facing issues against a huge underdog MVP PK, who took the Poles to a very close series that was decided after double overtime on the third map, Nuke. In the remaining two matches of the 0-1 pool, Heroic passed HellRaisers, while Liquid defeated Renegades in a three-map series.

The first two matches of the 1-0 pool, played during the latter half of the day, saw Natus Vincere edge Gambit while mousesports grabbed their first ever victory against SK. At the end of the day, FaZe made short work of Cloud9 in the rematch of the ELEAGUE Major grand final and G2 rounded out the 2-0 pool with a win over Astralis.

In another rematch from the ELEAGUE Major, Cloud9 will face SK

After the last two matches, the draw for the third round took place on the stream, most notably pitting Cloud9 up against SK in the 1-1 pool. G2 are set to play mousesports and Natus Vincere are on a collision course with FaZe for the first two spots in the playoffs, while Renegades vs. fnatic and HellRaisers vs. MVP PK will see the first two teams get eliminated.

Here is the full draw of the third round:

09:00 North America Liquid vs. Poland Virtus.pro
09:00 Australia Renegades  vs. Sweden fnatic *
12:00 United States Cloud9 vs. Brazil SK
12:00 Denmark Heroic vs. China TYLOO
15:00 Denmark Astralis vs. Kazakhstan Gambit
15:00 France G2 vs. Europe mousesports  **
18:00 Ukraine Natus Vincere   vs. Europe FaZe **
18:00 Europe HellRaisers vs. Korea MVP PK *

* loser will get eliminated with a 0-3 record
** winner will advance to the playoffs with a 3-0 record

Can these drawings get any fucking worse jesus christ first the major now its starseries already c9 vs sk
2018-02-19 00:43
normally sk gets always the easiest match-ups to advance in a tournament. finally they get a real opponent
2018-02-19 00:52
why is the worst match put as last of the day.... would get much more viewers with c9 sk as the last game

I mean, it's at the same time as Faze-Navi, so it wouldn't get any viewership whatsoever.
2018-02-19 04:54
blame the teams for losing their matches, not the system. the way i see it, every team (except navi based on other form) is facing a team they have a fair chance of beating. thats a fair and solid system

Brazil R_ananias 
you can't blame the teams. C9 is in 1-1 pool because they lost to FaZe. So If it wasn't C9 it would be FaZe to be 1-1. The system is just bad because it's too random.
2018-02-19 04:27
Swiss system is the most fair for teams. People nowadays so arrogant. They dont even remember why every tournament has this system
2018-02-19 07:00
true
2018-02-19 10:15
no, remember SK lost to mousesports, they shouldnt ever lose to them on lan Bo3. then you would have c9 vs mouse and SK VS G2. both amazingly fair matchups with 1 team being slight favourites thanks to initial seeding. SK are to blame, if they won, its a perfect 3rd round
2018-02-19 10:15
So a top6 team trending to even better placements should never ever win against a top4 team trending downwards on LAN in your opinion? I hope for you you're not betting, mate.
2018-02-19 13:02
Firstly Sk is a top 2 team and mouse is a top 8 team. And you do realise that was mouse 1st LAN map vs SK since july 2015? A trend doesnt mean anything if the gap in class between the two teams is so large, dont pay attention to placings, gap in skill and performance means much more. fnatic are 5th would say they have more than a 20% chance to beat faze or Sk in Bo3? ofc not Just like Faze vs C9 these results are soo unlikely to happen. a 20-30% chance for the underdog to win is terrible odds, so yes i'd use the word "never" to describe this.
2018-02-19 13:26
Thats the thing about trends and tendencies. Fnatic being 5th is nowhere near their standing in reality. SK is definitely not top 2 since they cant consistently beat the likes of faze, c9 and probably G2 anymore. Atm there is a vacuum, no distinguished top 1 team, and talking about rankings and capabilities of beating other teams of the same tiers makes near to no sense right now. Please explain the gap in skill between SK and mouse at the current moment, I can't really make it out except for Fallen's IGL skills being much better than Chrisj's.
2018-02-19 15:37
Did C9 will destroy SK again??

EU ppl watched the NA majors at that hour everyday,and mostly all of your events are at fucked up hours for EU ppl,and there are the most viewers,but the screwed ones are the organizers who need the views and so on....in EU most games are played after 5pm,so basically in the morning for u not in the middle of the night like for us

I just meant c9 unlucky because they drew matches against Faze and SK back to back.
2018-02-19 02:29
Agreed, but it’s important. They need to face them more on LAN. SK and Faze are The teams. C9 need to prove that they truly deserve their spot in the top 5. Having said that, these draws for C9 have been rough compared to other teams though. We shall see! Let’s go cloud 9!

Someone has to get the short end of the stick in every format. They proved themselves at the major by beating all of the best oponents. I sort of hope they can upset sk here as well. Even though there might be some caveats of c9 winning the major final itself their major run is undisputed in regards of what teams they were facing. If they can pull a deep run here and still be able to bring it to the best teams in the world. Well that would validate them even further.
