    Been waiting for this for a long time!

    The match to see in the First Group Stage clearly is Team Russia vs Team Peru. Team Russia is basically Virtus Pro (4/5) and Team Peru has two former TI Players like Kingteka and Matthew. Smash, vanN and ztok are also decent players. That BO1 is going to be a sensational game. May the best win.
