UKCSGO can reveal the groups and seeds for the event in an easy readable and returnable format, as well as the schedule.

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
2nd: CeX
3rd: ferrari peekers
4th: Lifts?

5th: BuzzKill Esports
6th: BaronsMoneyCrew
7th: Osterity
8th: Madeeka

9th: gumpster’s fanboys
10th: KDR
11th: IGI Esports
12th: 1.2 3/8 A/C 9670090880 aircon flex pipe

13th: Gingers and Ganja
14th: genetics *
15th: OMEN
16th: Rat Pack

17th: Parkinsons and Pints
18th: Exillium Esports
19th: potshots
20th: Revilo Unoffical Fangroup

22nd: Derby Raptors Mix
23rd: Blackout Gaming
24th: Xplicit

25th: LANiMALS
26th: KingsUnite.Mix

The event’s format features a best-of-one round robin group stage followed by a full best-of-three double elimination format, inspired by the likes seen at DOTA 2’s The International. With the number of teams here, there will be four groups, three of which will have seven teams and one with six. The groups are as follows:

[table id=50 /] [table id=51 /] [table id=52 /] [table id=53 /]

These groups will be updated through all of today. The action will be streamed on the epiclan1 Twitch channel, with a rotating cast featuring Rory “dream” Redmond, Michael “youm3” Cassidy, Jamie “switchbladejay” and Dave “davemarr” Marr.
