StarSeries Round 2 match-ups determined

StarLadder has revealed the pairings for the second round of matches at StarSeries i-League Season 7.

The 1-0 pool of matches will feature at least one clash between two top 10 teams in MIBR vs. Renegades, with ENCE potentially facing Vitality pending the outcome of the last match of the day.

After skipping the first day of the event due to visa issues, Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács will be back in action for FaZe against ViCi, who caused the biggest upset of the opening round by defeating No.4 team in the world Natus Vincere.

Na`Vi will meet either BIG or Vitality on Sunday

The Ukrainian team will be looking to bounce back from their false start against the loser of the match between BIG and Vitality in one of the most interesting matches of the 0-1 pool. However, all eyes will be on the Nordic showdown between NiP and North, two teams currently in the top 10.

Below you can find the complete draw, which did not use any seeding method:

1-0 pool:

Brazil MIBR vs. Australia Renegades
United States NRG vs. Sweden fnatic
Europe FaZe vs. China ViCi
Finland ENCE vs. Germany BIG / France Vitality

0-1 pool:

Ukraine Natus Vincere vs. Germany BIG / France Vitality
China TYLOO vs. China Panda
Russia Spirit vs. Brazil paiN
Sweden NiP vs. Denmark North

The draw is sure to revive the discussion about re-seeding the teams in between Swiss rounds. At the most recent Major, ESL introduced a new seeding method that saw teams rank each other before the event started. After that, the teams were assigned ELO ratings, which were adjusted after every match.

No, there isn't enough matches to determine 8 best teams without proper seeding.

Is also about the daily performance, same as in physical sports Its unlikely that you will get 3,4,5x a worthly opponent And if you lose all 3x matches to good opponents it maybe means your not good enough

If team loses against Astralis, Liquid and ENCE, according to you, it means they arent good enough for top8.
2019-03-30 21:13

Yes cuz that means either ence liquid or astralis are 0-2,1-2,2-2 and 2 teams were able to beat them

what is rigged there, u have to beat all times if u want to be a champion?
2019-03-30 17:10
pain - spirit , tyloo - panda meanwhile navi - big/vita ; or nip-north
2019-03-30 17:13
so what?
2019-03-30 17:14
Maybe .. unbalanced match up? I really what was done at the major, with the seed
2019-03-30 17:16
maybe we see better matches this way?
2019-03-30 17:17
but we will have either either nip either north at 0-2 .; anyway it doesnt matter
2019-03-30 17:20
they can only blame theirself about that

navi or big in 0-2 isnt good because it means if there is one more unlucky draw from the pool a team could be eliminated much earlier than they should have.
