Round 1 gets started – 12pm
After some classic first day LAN issues with servers and vetoing, the first round of matches have finally kicked off.
With Insomnia using the swiss format for groups it is unlikely for there to be any major upsets in round one. EKO being seeded number one means they get a free pass to the 1-0 stage with a chance to scout out their potential opposition.
