For a more detailed look at groups and seedings please view the following article.

The team has been seeded 7th due to strong competition from teams present and the uncertainty that the reshuffling of the team brings. The team aims to place highly in the CS:GO tournament however the road to such a placing will be very challenging. Why? For many reasons, first and foremost two European teams are attending this iSeries, former players from Team Roccat and OnlineBOTS.

Nothing more need be said about players from Team Roccat. However OnlineBOTS is a mix team containing a few players from United Estonia’s line-up who are current champions of the ESL UK Premiership, how much this translates will depend upon the overall team’s experience. But there is no doubt that OnlineBOTS will definitely pose a challenge. On top of the visitors from Europe there are other top teams attending the event , CAZ esports (who qualified for SLTV), Team Infused, CeX and FM eSports (former Choke Gaming lineup). With the large presence of such talented teams there is sure to be many tense and close games with the top places definitely open to anyone.
