Frankfurt Major: Groups announced
The groups for the Frankfurt Major have been announced and the group stage will begin on 13th November.
ESL has released the groups for the Frankfurt Major; there are four groups containing four teams each. The matches for group A and group B will take place on 13th November and group C and D will be played on the 14th of November.
The favorites for group A are Evil Geniuses and Virtus.Pro, Fnatic and Newbee will have to dig deep if they want to move on to the upper bracket. It is highly unlikely for a second American team to make it to the next stage considering that Unknown as well as Cloud9 are in tough groups. In my opinion, group D will be the most interesting due to the amount of uncertainties in it; will CDEC be able to change their play style? Will Alliance be able to edge out Mineski or vice versa? And will EHOME perform well without their former leader Bai 'rOtk' Fan?
