The draw for the group stage of the CS:GO Asia Championships has been made, with the eight participating teams having learned their fate in the competition.
The group draw took place this Monday in Shanghai in a meeting with the eight participating teams, who were split into two double-elimination groups.
Evil Geniuses face a tricky test against MIBR in the opening round of Group A, which also features G2 and local side TYLOO. In the other group, all eyes will be on the clash between AVANGAR and mousesports, two teams separated by just three places in the rankings.
Kicking off on Wednesday, the CS:GO Asia Championships will feature a best-of-three format in all matches. The group winners will automatically move on to the semi-finals, while the second and third-placed sides will advance to the first round of the single-elimination playoffs.
