September 9th, 2018 20:26

After the New Challengers came to a close with Vega Squadron rounding out the team list, FACEIT drew the first-round matchups of the New Legends stage.

The last day of FACEIT Major's first stage saw the final round of matches played, as teams of the 2-2 pool fought in best-of-three series for the last three spots in the New Legends stage.

Astralis will go up against Natus Vincere in one of the headliners of round one

TYLOO were the first team to go through from the fifth round, as they defeated Spirit 2-0 to advance to the top-16 team for the first time in the organization's history. BIG followed with a 2-0 triumph over OpTic, and Vega Squadron rounded out the New Legends stage team list after defeating the DreamHack Masters Stockholm champions, North, in a two-map series.

After the last day's matches came to a close, FACEIT did the draw of the next stage, in which there were five pools of teams:

Pool A: Cloud9, FaZe, Natus Vincere, MIBR
Pool B: mousesports, fnatic, Winstrike, G2
Pool C: NiP, Liquid
Pool D: Astralis, HellRaisers, compLexity
Pool E: TYLOO, BIG, Vega Squadron

The draw followed with these rules in place:

1. Three teams from Pool E will play against three teams from Pool A
2. One remaining Team from Pool A will play against one team from Pool D
3. Two remaining teams from Pool D will play against two teams from Pool B
4. Two remaining Teams from Pool B will play against the two teams from Pool C

The first-round matchups of the FACEIT New Legends stage, which will be played in a Swiss format, with the fifth round featuring best-of-three series once again, are the following:

United States Cloud9 vs. Russia Vega Squadron
Brazil MIBR vs. China TYLOO
Europe FaZe vs. Germany BIG
Ukraine Natus Vincere vs. Denmark Astralis
France G2 vs. Other HellRaisers
Sweden fnatic vs. North America compLexity
Russia Winstrike vs. North America Liquid
Europe mousesports vs. Sweden NiP

Nice matchups! C9 < Vega mibr < Tyloo Faze < BIG Navi < Astralis G2 < HR fnatic > col who? < Liquid mouz > NIP

2018-09-09 20:28
Nip is top 8 on HLTV ranking and north is not in the major so NiP is 7, but get top play a top 5 team, fucking how? Nip Is 7 so we should have played against some team that is 9-16 fuck this shit

Wait, no offense towards NIP, but you're logic is that just because they did best in the 1st stage, they should get the ez teams? It could have been worse; mouz looked ok at stockholm and nip is looking good.
2018-09-09 20:37
yep now that I see Navi vs Astralis, they got the worst out of this new system

Are you retarded ? Nothing is bad, they just follow tournament format rules ... For example : if you finished top 2 in previous major, you have to face one of the worst teams (3-2) thats why faze vs big or cloud vs vega
2018-09-09 20:38
liquid wasnt even in the last major just in qual and they got winstrike lmao I know that winstrike did become legends last time but its still ridicolous

I didnt see that at first I just looked at NiP I dont give a fuck bout no one else but yeah, now afterwards u are right Astralis vs NaVi is really retarded #1 round
2018-09-09 20:39
what do the hltv ranks have to do with the seeding of the major? completely irrelevant.
2018-09-09 21:56
Coulda been worse? It was literally between mouz and losestrike.
2018-09-09 20:35
so you think your team should play a team that is not as good as nip so they can improve? pathetic
2018-09-10 17:01
Well I kinda changed my mind. There are no easy teams in the major But 7th ranked vs 4th ranked (north is not in major) is just retarded But I see they go by past majors Anyway the major is no place to improve ,but to win , winning all that matters in major even if its dirty cs

everything is possible man, remember krakow 2017 faze go 3 0 and it was one of the favorite teams to win or imagine this: col make to the major so they are a good team, they have 2 days to train for fnatic, if they got lucky and win or manage somehow fnatic can meet in second round another unlucky big team who lose(because surprise always happen) and here we go they are at 0 2 this is improbable but is ok to start with a victory to bring some morale to the team.
2018-09-09 20:59
yea true but who knows, last time fnatic went out at last place (Starladder) they won the following event (Katowice), now they went out at last place at DH Stockholm so... fingers crossed

Sucks for mouz/nip and navi/astralis, starting with a loss
2018-09-09 20:34
meanwhile liquid get winstrike (old QBF) ; ) start with 0-1 - tilted after deafeat - the shortest route to 0-3 (faze get big in krakow'17 and end major with 0-3 record)

2018-09-09 20:41
Good luck to FaZe in the rematch (seeing as BIG went 3-2 I'm not THAT worried for FaZe)
2018-09-09 20:40
Big defeated faze right?
2018-09-09 20:41
Yeah, unfortunately But let's hope FaZe can 3-0
2018-09-09 20:43
I don't think faze will be defeated again by big coz they may have studied fr that defeat and bootcamped for them and also they have old team back wid olof we can think they ll do good
2018-09-09 20:44
Yesss - and NiKo is bloody on FIIIIRE

FaZe - Na'Vi' in the Final would be awesome tbh, hoping for that
2018-09-09 20:47
Yup I also want fnatic to do well
2018-09-09 20:48
Yeah it's possible tbh, they're good - hopefully!
2018-09-09 20:51
Idk man they need consistent wins They look shabby sometimes in mid rounds they lose badly
2018-09-09 20:52
They've got the players with the skill, but draken needs to start showing up and Xizt needs a long talk with their coach about playing tactically - I feel they employ a looser style based off individual ability, but when the individuals aren't showing up, it can't work
2018-09-09 20:57
Yup Draken will be good this year but xizt need to utilize talent
2018-09-09 20:58
Yeah pretty much - luck to them

Because C9's recent performances make them heavy favorites over Vega...LUL Also Astralis had eZaF draws in the first stage.

3-0 this time, the little failings from player break rust will be gone watch them tear through this easily, BO1 veto system against most of these teams gives them great maps and they should be so ready. RIP a bunch of big names this stage yes, I think a few unexpected names are very vulnerable ! just not Astralis

Yeah agree on all but NiP, map pool seems too weak for BO1 = this stage is gonna be a lot harder for them. Certain teams can ban Mirage and its already a much easier matchup, others can ban Overpass. Lots of Nuke bans expected anyway.. so surely in this situation Inferno is NiP best hope to get any wins. But everyone plays Inferno.. Really tough to nail down the final few in pickems, gonna be fun ! gl and to everyone else too

C9 < Vega mibr > Tyloo Faze > BIG Navi < Astralis G2 > HR fnatic > col who? < Liquid mouz < NIP As much as i want tyloo to win but against mibr it seems almost impossible. They're looking good atm ever since ynk joined in as their coach. NiP is also looking good while mouz been shaky. So yeah i think this should be the outcome.
2018-09-10 06:37
Super hard to predict these first few matches, keep in mind we don't know what form the "legends" have atm. These in particiular I find it hard to guess the outcome of: Faze - Big The germans looking strong but if niko, rain and guardian has a good day they don't stand a chance. Astralis - Navi Is Astralis saving the best for last? or are they actually getting found out atm bcuz all eyes are on them? Navi also lost a little form lately but they will be SUPERprepared for this latter stage. Nip - Mouse Think Ninjas will have the upper hand here because they had to play different matches and are in good form, that being said mouse is gonna come out strong. 50/50 MiBR - Tyloo All down to if Fallen can outcall these crazy plays from the Tyloo bois. All 5 major winners, Tyloo is overhyped right now but i think its a 60-40 in favour of MiBR. Sidenote: Fnatic should have the edge on col due to col's inexperience, can't see col winning that one. Would be a major (no pun intended) upset if that happened. C9 is going to get hammed by Vega, cant see no other result. G2 will most likely have a hard game but i think they will see the win out. Just to add for last i think the legends who haven't played yet have a slightly upper hand watching fresh demos from the qualstage. Well rested and superprepared all of them, just hope they fix all the tech issues thats been going on the last week. GLHF
