StarLadder has revealed the groups and schedule for the upcoming Europe Minor.
The Europe Minor will take place from July 17-21 and feature eight qualified teams battle for a spot at the Major. The event will feature double-elimination groups and offer $50,000 in prize money.
A spot in the New Challengers Stage of the StarLadder Major is on the line with the top two sides earning their place. Third place teams will get one more chance at the Minor play-in where the top three teams will earn a spot.
mousesports are the heavy favorites in Group A where they sit a step above the rest and having shown great results on the big stage recently at ESL One Cologne.
Group B isn’t so straightforward though with North, fnatic, BIG, and Ancient making up the list. While fnatic, North, and BIG favored in matches against Ancient, writing off the Swedish side is not a good idea. Anybody can come out on top of Group B and some nail biters should be expected.
