IEM4 North America Groups Announced

NORTH AMERICA – The Intel Extreme Masters Groups have been announced for North America.

The ESL's Intel Extreme Masters had a series of online qualifiers whose winners, along with the top 4 of the ESL America's Invite Division, would qualify to be one of the eight teams at the American championship later this year.

Today the groups for the first group stage of the American championship were decided.

Each of the four groups had its own high level performers. In Group A, coming strong off the second place finish at WCG USA, Team Turmoil looks to be the favorite, with their challengers being Cyber Revolution, High Rollers Gaming and Frag Dominants canadian roster, No Pression.

In Group B, we have the WCG champion EG, with little competition from their former group mates, CC+, the coolkids and finally, and the only apparent threat to EG, Excello.zowie. In Group C it looks like there will be a rematch of two Canadian contenders, Complexity Canada and Blight Canada.  Along with those two you have SK-Gaming Ladies, and a unknown in the Kenna 5ive.

Finally Group D appears to be the group of death for this stage of play. It features EG's and Turmoil's long time rival Complexity, the CEVO Professional champ and potential ESL's Invite division winners as well.  They are followed closely by MoB's more recent lineup, a long time contender zetsumi and finally Area51, who despite playing poorly online recently, has always been able to compete when it matters.
