StarSeries Round 3 pairings determined

The draw for the third Swiss round of StarSeries Season 7 has taken place, with the 16 competing sides having learned their fate.

The 2-0 pool of teams will be headlined by the clash between FaZe and Renegades, two teams currently in the top 10, with the other match pitting Vitality against fnatic.

In the 1-1 pool, two regional clashes will be drawing a lot of attention as MIBR will go up against NRG, while NiP will be locking horns with Natus Vincere. IEM Katowice runners-up ENCE will be looking to shake off their defeat to Vitality but will need to be wary of the threat posed by ViCi, who stunned Na`Vi on the first day of the event.

NiKo's FaZe will take on Renegades on Monday

North and BIG will be widely expected to get a victory to their names after being paired with Panda and paiN, respectively, in the 0-2 pool of teams.

Below you can find the draw in full:

2-0 pool:

Europe FaZe vs. Australia Renegades
France Vitality vs. Sweden fnatic

1-1 pool:

United States NRG vs. Brazil MIBR
Sweden NiP vs. Ukraine Natus Vincere
China ViCi vs. Finland ENCE
China TYLOO vs. Russia Spirit

0-2 pool:

Denmark North vs. China Panda
Germany BIG vs. Brazil paiN

Dude must've lost a bet.. But no, I'm not saying that ence is #2 in the world. Actually they are like top5. But the thing is, they play better whe they are under some pressure. And I meant that it could happen (high chance) that ENCE will go into quarters atleast. Ence played bad today, but that doesn't mean they will play bad tomorrow.

It's about pride for seeing own country competing in big leagues. Sometimes it feels we aint worth shit but when something big happens to us we take great pride with it and at the same time lifting the depression out of the way. We finns enjoy being noticed but at the same time we like to keep our things by us. Any finns feel free to disagree and put yall opinions here but this is how i personally see it. (also the cocky ones might be some 13year old "jonnes(basically squeakers)" who dont know how else to contribute other than saying "ez4ence")

I got destroyed in this matchup props to spirit but honestly it came down to tyloo just playing like trash. Its not about pandas recent games its about who is on their roster and spirits play style. Anyways props to them they are probably going to be the upset of the tournie

Yeah because you're a newfag , pakistani or swedish , if you're pakistani so you can't talk cuz your country = 3rd world + noscene country + shithole country and if you're swedish your scene is worse than french scene and you are fakeflagging so that means that you're ashamed by your own country so you can't talk about french scene there is nothing to laugh since the 2 new teams are growing in power very fastly and at the end of the tournament we'll see if vitality is top 5 world or not and tomorrow i will laugh at fnatic so hard
