ESL European Nations Championship Main Round

ESL – Great ENC action gets underway with United Kingdom facing off with Russia.

Today marked the opening of the European Nations Championship Main Round. 6 teams were locked up as an automatic bid due to their success in past years. The remaining 6 teams had to prove their worthiness as they duked it out through four Qualification Rounds, but they have now made it to the ENC Main Round.

The 12 teams are split into two groups of six, Group A & Group B. The format is standard Max Rounds 15 and a Best of 3 map series between the teams.

The groups are as follows:

GROUP A:
France
United Kingdom (Callisto, HenryG, Hughsy, Re1ease, hudzG)
Denmark
Russia (Cblp, Nix1, c0m, limper, ub1que)
Belgium
Germany

GROUP B:

Italy
Austria
Poland
Netherlands
Slovakia

The rosters are currently unreported. More information will be made available soon.

To get underway the first series consisted of the United Kingdom squaring off with Russia. The first match was a close one on de_dust2, but the UK pulled away winning both halves by a score of 8-7 for a final score of 16-14.

The next map up was de_train. Russia was able to take the match on train by a score of 16-12 to even the match series at 1 game to 1.

De_inferno was a completely different story as UK throttled the Russians by shutting them out with score of 16-0 to go on and take the series 2 games to 1.
