BLAST Premier Spring Showdown groups drawn

Teams from Europe and the Americas competing in the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown have been drawn into groups ahead of the tournament's start on Sunday May 31.

The groups for the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown have been announced by the tournament organizer, with competing teams split into two groups of five in Europe and two groups of four in North America.

mousesports are looking to bounce back in BLAST

Only one team per group will be eliminated before the playoffs, which will be played out using a single-elimination bracket, with a BO1 round-robin format used in the group stage.

In Europe, the two highest-ranked teams that were not invited to the BLAST circuit — fnatic and mousesports — have been placed in group B, and will be hoping for better results than they posted recently in ESL One: Road to Rio and DreamHack Masters Spring. Meanwhile, Astralis will be in group A, alongside Vitality and NiP.

BLAST Premier Spring Showdown Europe groups:

FURIA and MIBR will once again butt heads in a spicy Brazilian matchup as they were drawn into group A in the Americas division, while Evil Geniuses and 100 Thieves are looking like favorites to top group B.

you cant use that here, doesn't make sense in my opinion, its not that a like to have mibr and furia in the same group, but its the draw.
2020-05-25 18:21
draw seems kinda dodgy because MIBR, Furia and Chaos are always in the same group
2020-05-26 09:36
Same old same old Vita, ence, nip, astralis. So borring
2020-05-25 22:07
Bro I swear these NA groups are always the same. I'm getting tired of seeing 100T vs EG

But on the otherhand a Win for us i think 100T can actually top this group
2020-05-25 18:34
It will be either 100T or C9 EG sucks

They are. They can lose to AVEZ 16-6 and then win vs Movistar Riders 3-0. They are inconsistent.
2020-05-25 19:51
They lost 16-6 against AVEZ, because they tried to play with the vetos to make AVEZ ban mirage for them, but they didnt, mirage is the worst worst map of saw.

They're playing well, and are very well positioned on most of tournaments they're in. But what the international community sees is what it shows on HLTV, and that Blast Rising tournament went terrible for them, so its understandable. Lets see how they play on HomeSweetHome 6

Online CS especially in NA is getting so boring watching the same teams play each other. You already know Furia will top their group. And even when 100T play good against EG they’ll find a way to still not finish 1st. International LAN’s can’t come soon enough I just want NA teams to verse EU so we get different games

Group A on NA was made just to get so much spectators from Brazil Literally 150k on almost each brazilian game easy MIBR X FURIA - Brazilian rivalry (maybe 200k?) MIBR X Chaos - provocations at the last match MIBR X GenG - GenG never won against MIBR FURIA X GenG - FURIA never won against GenG FURIA X Chaos - not so relevant GenG X Chaos - not so relevant

I'm getting tired of it being the same match-ups over and over. There should only be two big leagues (One fall One spring) with like 20 teams where you meet each other twice and then 2 majors and maybe Katowice and Cologne as invitationals. The leagues should have qualification Up and down like regular football leagues and determine like 8 direct spot to the majors.

NA Group B is a joke, 100T shouldn't lose a single game.
