Meet the ESL One Los Angeles Online EU/CIS Groups

Meet the ESL One Los Angeles Online EU/CIS Groups

Between April 9-19, the best Dota2 teams in the EU and CIS regions will come together for an epic clash at ESL One Los Angeles Online. It all starts with the group stage, which plays out as follows:

Sixteen teams are split into two groups of eight to be played in a Bo3 round robin format. The top two teams from each group will advance to the playoffs in the upper bracket, while third and fourth place from each pool will have to fight their way from the lower bracket.

Seeding Procedure:

We asked each team to rate all others in attendance, excluding the final qualifier slot, on a scale from 1-14. Adding up these scores allowed us to determine a ranking for seeding purposes. In order to avoid any potential manipulation of the ranking, scores that exceeded 1.5* standard deviations were removed from the tally. This process allowed us to form the following groups:

Group A:

  • Nigma
  • OG
  • Virtus.pro
  • HellRaisers
  • Gambit Esports
  • Vikin.GG
  • Cyber Legacy
  • B8

Group B:

  • Team Secret
  • Team Liquid
  • Alliance
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • Natus Vincere
  • Gentlemen
  • Team Spirit
  • Qualifier
