IEM Katowice New Legends Stage Tournament Guide - Tipify

Esports News – The new season of IEM Katowice Major’s New Challengers Stage has come to close, and that leads us to the main event set to conclude on February 28 to March 3. It follows a three-day break to give way to the New Legends Stage grand finals. This particular stage features powerhouse teams and a handful of underdogs battling it out for the prize pool and glory in a BO3 single-elimination bracket at the Spodek Arena.

Participating teams

The 16 participating CSGO teams in the New Challengers Stage have been asked by the organization to rank each of them in order to form a 1-16 stage ranking to determine the team’s seed and the order of the first matchups. This method is called “Player-Selected Seeding”. Each team gets a designated ELO rating based on their seed, and their ratings adjusted after every round with winners taking a portion of the losers’ points.

The result of the first seeding and the full team list is as follows:

1. Astralis
2. Team Liquid
3. Natus Vincere
4. Made In Brazil
5. FaZe Clan
6. NRG
7. BIG
8. ENCE
9. Renegades
10. Team Vitality
11. Ninjas in Pyjamas
12. HellRaisers
13. Cloud9
14. G2 Esports
15. AVANGAR
16. CompLexity Gaming
