Here we go again! Following last weekend's seeding match between Supremacy and Team Oplon (ex-ARES/Lucky7), the European Pro League groups are now complete. This will be the last season played under the current format, which consists of a double-elimination group stage after which the region's four best teams will face off in a classic elimination bracket.
The winners of the last season of European Pro League, PENTA Sports, have been placed in group A along with Vitality, a team which they have faced recently at the Six Invitational. It will not be the only French roster in the group as Millenium and Team Oplon, respectively seeded 4th and 5th, are the last two teams in group A.
The fourth French team, Supremacy, is in group B. They will come up against the latest Pro League World champions, ENCE eSports, as well as German team 1UPeSport and the brand new Swedish roster which recently got picked up by Digital Chaos.
While two spots for the Pro League World Finals are still at stake, this season will also see the six best teams keep their Pro League spot and compete under the upcoming new six-month format (more about that here).Translated by @Chevrotte
