V4 Future Sports Festival groups drawn

The draw for the group stage of the V4 Future Sports Festival has been made, with the eight competing teams having been split into two groups.

The participating teams were split into two seeding pots based on whether they were invited or had to qualify for the event. 

mousesports, who won the StarSeries i-League Season 4 last night, have been drawn against Polish duo Virtus.pro and VenatoreS, and David "⁠frozen⁠" Čerňanský's eXtatus. FaZe, the current No.1 team in the world, face a relatively easier task, having been paired with HellRaisers, GameAgents and Dark Tigers.

Group A Group B
Europe FaZe Europe mousesports

Extatus won last Czecho-Slovak Championship 2017 (biggest LAN in our region), they also went into MDL (i guess 27th season) last season and did pretty good.

2018-02-26 12:59
against who they can win some map? XD just tell me, vp is shit but in 1 month with michu they shouldnt lose 10 rounds to extatus (worst lan team eu), venatores will easily beat them 2:0 too, they are bunch of lanners, should be pretty ez too
2018-02-26 13:01

0/8 venatores lul
2018-02-26 13:02
typical newfag XD extatus higher than venatores in hltv ranking so they cant win, lmfao kid
2018-02-26 13:03
Denmark ghostan11
Tell me one achievement for venatores beside winning vs other polish shit teams
2018-02-26 13:04
Tell me one achievement for extatus beside, after over 1 year of playing together while having consistant star player, getting into eu minor just to get smashed by everyone on lan to prove that they can't compete. you are so fucking delusional lmfao XD
2018-02-26 13:11
Denmark ghostan11
So u telling me this shit team venatores was created few months ago? Both teams are trash and onliners, but at least extatus has achieved something.qualifed for minor and almost to esl pro league. Meanwhile venatores arent even in the premier. Didnt even do something in eu leagues.thats why extasus is better than venatores. Saying that for sure they will lose to them is kind of delusional even for polak who is scared to put his flag.
2018-02-26 13:18
>venatores >onliners XDDD lmfao you say that only because you are delusional polish scene hater, you got mental problems and we both know that so at this point eod
2018-02-26 13:19
Denmark ghostan11
Lmao ofc they are onliners.by what do you judge that they are lanners when in their whole retarded history they didnt play any lans in eu leagues. Thats why both of this teams are onliners but at least extasus achieved something
2018-02-26 13:23
Its like saying that VP are onliners because they would never qualify to lan XD you are so fucking autistic and dumb, surely 16-18 yo kid venatores are trash online, thats why they cant qualify to tournaments, they are much better on lans but they simply didnt have chance to qualify, your tears wont change it my little boy
2018-02-26 13:26
Denmark ghostan11
Lmfao venatores arent playing in eu lans cuz they simply suck to qualify.beside playing in shitty polish lans they havent done anything after an year.thats not an excuse for them being that bad and not even being in the premier.and Yes if vp wouldnt get those invites i dont think they would stand a chance to qualify. So they can be raped on lan (almost lost to mvp omegalul) its cute that you are defending shitters cuz they are from Poland but stop cuz you are embarrasing yourself
2018-02-26 13:32

It's so dumb, Faze is there only because of 1 player?! haha Should not be a thing, if it's V4(Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia) then pick teams where at least the majority of players are from these countries. Huge chance for smaller teams to show up & get some cash to further develop
2018-02-26 15:15
they want tier 1-2 teams, not just tier 4 to make a good event
2018-02-26 15:19
>vp >tier1-2
2018-02-26 16:04
mouz faze
2018-02-26 16:49
There isn't a lot of point investing so much money into an event that will have tier10 teams and no exposure at all. Nobody would give a fuck if there were only teams with majority V4 players in it,but if someone sees mouz and faze there they immidiatly get a bit more curious.
2018-02-26 16:32
Scam event 4 sure probably shit delays and pc crashes aswell

What’s the point of hosting a 600k tournament if your only going to invite a few teams?
2018-02-27 08:53
it´s a V4 tournamnet for countries of the V4. 4 top teams has been invited as they have atleast 1 player of V4 countries. Why ? Because of the lvl of the event. Why is the government doing this ? To raise averness and give chance to low teams to build budget to make it to higher lvl :)
