Revealing the group stage draw and final team for ESL One Hamburg 2018

Revealing the group stage draw and final team for ESL One Hamburg 2018

The ESL One Hamburg group stage starts exactly one week from now on Tuesday, October 23rd and we’ve separated the twelve attending teams into two groups of six as we approach the start of the event.

As you can see from the group stage draw, we’ve also locked down the replacement team for TNC Predator who had to withdraw from ESL One Hamburg due to scheduling conflicts. In their place, EVOS Esports will represent the SEA region as 2nd place finishers in the regional qualifiers. The fully Indonesian squad will now enjoy their first event in the West with a chance to impress new audiences on the big stage.

Thanks to the new event format, every team will end up playing ten group stage matches (5x Bo2s) against their group‘s opponents before the top four teams from each group move on to the playoffs. You can read up on the ESL One Hamburg format right here.

The tournament is set to start with the first three series from Group A which will be played simultaneously across three streams.
