StarLadder Major Berlin 2019: Europe Minor group stage draw
Only one week separates fans from the start of the Minor Championships for the StarLadder Major Berlin 2019! Today, we present the group-stage draw for the Europe Minor on July 17-21, where eight participants are set to fight for two tickets to the most prestigious CS:GO event of this fall.
Eight teams overall have earned the right to attend Europe Minor Championship after passing the barrier of the closed qualifier. In the list, there is room for both well-known squads, like North, mousesports, and Fnatic, and lineups who are just getting started such as Team Ancient and NoChance.
|Group A||Group B|
In the first group, all eyes are drawn to mousesports and CR4ZY, who previously met at the last European Minor for IEM Katowice Major. Back then, CR4ZY, formerly known as Valiance, beat mouz twice and eliminated them from the competition. This time, they will be joined by the German five of Sprout and the Europeans of NoChance.
Group B is headlined by the Danes of North and the Swedish lineup of Fnatic. At the previous Major, FNC were eliminated in The New Challengers Stage, and now, the team is participating in its first Minor event as they are anxious to return to the Major Circuit. The other two teams in the group are the Germans of BIG and William "draken" Sundin’s Team Ancient.
