cs_summit 8 groups drawn

FURIA will take on O PLANO in their first match, while Extra Salt will go up against EXTREMUM.

Beyond the Summit have revealed the group draw and opening match-ups for cs_summit 8, the Regional Major Ranking (RMR) event for North America that will offer leaderboard points towards qualifying for the PGL Stockholm Major.

Evil Geniuses, FURIA, Liquid, and EXTREMUM all received invites to compete in the main event as a result of being the highest-ranked teams on the 2020 RMR leaderboard, and although the seeding for the groups were done via the world rankings, the draw still resulted in an even distribution, with the directly invited teams matching up against those who advanced through the closed qualifier.

FURIA are set to face O PLANO in their first match

The eight teams have been sorted into two, best-of-three GSL groups, with the opening round kicking off with FURIA in a domestic battle against O PLANO, a match in which they will face Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles for the first time since his departure from the lineup.

Meanwhile EXTREMUM, returning to play in North America for the first time since October when they took part in IEM New York, have been drawn against Extra Salt, who concluded a European tour of their own and had a flawless run through the cs_summit closed qualifier.

In Group B, Evil Geniuses are set to take on paiN, a team Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz and company have yet to face after spending the first portion of their year in Europe, while Liquid and Bad News Bears will face off in the second opening match.

The top two teams from each group will advance to the upper bracket of the playoffs, while the loser of the decider match in each group will have a chance at redemption through spots in the lower bracket, resulting in only two teams being eliminated during the group stage.

The schedule for the opening matches of cs_summit 8 looks as follows:

Thursday, May 20

23:30 | North America Evil Geniuses vs. Brazil paiN
02:30 | North America Extra Salt vs. Oceania EXTREMUM

Friday, May 21

23:30 | Brazil FURIA vs. Brazil O PLANO
02:30 | United States Liquid vs. United States Bad News Bears

It is how it works. It was made before they know which team would attend, not saying i agree but these people saying they put this to harm brazilians teams are stupid Also, there are other tournaments with 1,4,5,8 and 2,3,6,7 seed.

Well, i can't say for sure, but normally groups are made by seed based on rankings. If brazilians teams were in the same groups in these tournaments, probably they got matched in this seeds. I'd have to research to be 100% sure. But most likely it was just bad lucky, they don't do it on purpose.

Pain > EG - Could go either way honestly, but EG is simply not looking great Extra Salt > EXTREMUM - Same as before, could go any way, but I can see EXTREMUM taking it if Liazz and gratata perform similarly to how they did in Spring Sweet Spring Furia > O PLANO - Same as before... anything can happen, but I will side with Furia on this one just because O PLANO does not have many matches against anything other than NA teams Liquid > BNB - Liquid has not competed for a while, but I hope that with adreN they can go the full distance. BNB has insane upset potential and I would not be surprised if they made it far into the tournament or destroyed Liquid Honestly I am excited for NA matches for once, but I wish my top 4 teams were not all in the same group lol
