EPICENTER groups revealed

The groups for EPICENTER’s CS:GO tournament later this month have been announced by Epic Esports Events.

Set to start on December 17th in Moscow, Russia, the eight teams that will be taking part of EPICENTER have been seeded into two groups. Among those teams will be Vitality, Natus Vincere, mousesports—who were invited when fnatic pulled out—, Evil Geniuses, and AVANGAR.

ZywOo will be in action at EPICENTER

The European and Chinese teams to make it through the qualifier, Heroic and EHOME, have been paired up with Vitality and Natus Vincere in Group A, while the CIS champion forZe has been slotted with local rivals AVANGAR, as well as mousesports and Evil Geniuses in Group B.

All matches will be best-of-three, with two groups of four teams that will be played out in a GSL format. The playoffs will take place at the Crocus Expo IEC on December 21-22, where the winner will take the lion’s share of a $500,000 prize pool.

The groups are:

Yes it's good practice but it's not great when they have played pretty poorly after qualifying, losing to r-stars twice
2019-12-05 22:42
Yeah if they get fucked on then that wouldn’t help much. If they can at least get 10 rounds a map or smth to make it close, then they will have something to watch and improve from

I hope so... it would be sad and a shame if they just get destroyed and dont even get 5 rounds in a map

I agree, but EG is still stronger, and the jetlag is not particularly affect them, as we see on the latest tournaments
2019-12-05 16:09
Forze on home soil could be dangerous especially if Almazer/FL1T/Xsepower enter their god mode but yeah EG could be really problematic to deal against
2019-12-05 16:10

Forze has very little experience against playing on the tier-1 stage. That's the problem
2019-12-05 16:14
Last time in Moscow they impressed everyone maybe it was just bo1 games but still also their map pool looks pretty damn solid and still if even EG is untouchable, mousesports looks not that good
