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?

  • afiq "skygodz" sk ,
    group A group of death i think.Sad life
    • Sohail "GT-R" Raisi ,
      Nope thats Group B not A
      • yao "wahahahaha" yao ,
        Group B will be, VG seems to be the favorite, but OG and vega are also strong
        • Nathan Brenn Jr. "nathanjr12" Plazos ,
          Personally from Vega's current performance, they are deteriorating big time. Remember, ESL had a terrible format, making the result not so reliable. I really think that people just over hyped Vega. After ESL they looked like what we saw during Pre T.I 5.
          • Sohail "GT-R" Raisi ,
            I think they are still Good i mean yeah they are not great but they can atleast qualify
          • Denis "Vodka2Gud" Blah ,
            let me put it this way, vega's best performance can beat anyone, and their worst they will lose to unknown, most CIS teams are like this, however if no[o]ne get wr or SF its very hard to stop vega
          • Andhika "skyke" Widiawan ,
            Alliance broke them after ESL on 1 series, CeMa ragequit on both of their losses lol
    • afiq "skygodz" sk ,
      yea my bad guys but based on the grouping,no sleep time for me n SEA rigion due to hype
