Schedule Of Matches For CIS Minor - FACEIT Major 2018
The second tournament out of the series of FACEIT Minors, CIS Minor Championship - London 2018, will run from the 10th to the 13th of July. Seven representatives of the CIS region will be fighting for the right to participate in FACEIT Major: The New Challengers Stage and a $50,000 prize-pool that is standard for CS:GO Minors.
In contrast to all the others CS:GO Minors, there will be one less team at the qualifying event for CIS. The Belarusians from Nemiga Gaming were twice rejected in getting their UK visas, and FACEIT couldn’t find a replacement for them in such a short period of time.
Due to those changes, Group A will gather three squads instead of four. In order to adjust the existing format that will be used at CIS Minor, the organizers decided to send HellRaisers straight to the winners’ match, where they will have to play against PLINK or pro100 for a Playoffs spot.

Monolith and PLINK have also encountered the visa issues but, in their case, it was solved by replacing some players. The ex-EPG member Mareks "YEKINDAR" Gaļinskis will perform for Monolith at CIS Minor as a substitute for Denis "Kas9k" Grishechkin, and PLINK will make use of the services of Kristjan "fejtZ" Allsaar, who will step into shoes of Artur "DarkS1DE" Kravchenko.
We’d like to remind you that FACEIT Minors share a common format. CIS Minor is not an exception as it will start with GSL group stage and be finished by Playoffs in a double-elimination bracket. The two strongest teams will then advance to FACEIT Major: The New Challengers Stage.
