ELEAGUE Major 2018 CIS Minor set to start tomorrow

Qualifying for the world championship ELEAGUE Major 2018 will not be an easy task to accomplish, and we will see how this will happen over the course of the coming months.

The draw for the group stage of the CIS Minor has taken place, with the participating teams having been placed into two groups, HLTV.org has learned.

Hosted by PGL at its Bucharest studio from October 26-29, the CIS Minor will feature eight teams – two invited and six qualified -, who will duke it out for two spots at the Main Qualifier for ELEAGUE Major 2018.

Group A features Spirit, the second-highest ranked team of the tournament, who are joined by Nemiga, pro100 and NOTBAD. Group B is headlined by AVANGAR, who are currently ranked 35th in the world, with Tengri, Quantum Bellator Fire and forZe rounding out the group.

The group stage will feature a double-elimination bracket, with the elimination and the decider matches being played in a best-of-three format. The top two teams from each group will then progress to the playoffs, which are expected to continue to feature a double-elimination system.
