StarSeries i-League Season 6 first match-ups drawn

Starladder has revealed the match-ups for the first Swiss round of StarSeries i-League Season 6.

The draw was broadcast live from StarLadder's studios, where analyst duo Alexey "xaoc" Kucherov and Aleksandr "petr1k" Petryk pulled out the ties for the first round.

The draw was seeded, based on whether the teams were invited to the event or had to earn a spot via the regional qualifiers that were held in Europe, North America and Asia.

cadiaN's North will face OpTic in the first round

The first round will be headlined by an all-Danish showdown between North, who have just undergone two changes to their roster, and OpTic, who are currently down to a four-man squad after losing Nicklas "gade" Gade.

After back-to-back seasons in which the Swiss stage featured best-of-three series, the tournament is reverting to a best-of-one format for this early stage. The top eight sides will progress to the single-elimination playoffs, which will culminate with a best-of-five grand final.

Below you can find all first-round match-ups for StarSeries, which will run from October 7-14 in Kiev:
