Seeds

Now for the always favourite contentious part of the event, the seeds. These were released at 9pm last night (apologies for the delay) and there was some controversy involved, but most were well received. The seedings were developed by the CS:GO admin team headed up by Umar “Maru” Aswat, and involved looking at previous LAN event finishes by team members, their online performances in leagues like ESEA and the ESL Premiership, as well as performances in PUG leagues like ESEA, UKPL/AL and the FPL. The seedings, with teams, are as follows:

1st: Fierce Esports
