All main group stage matches were played out, as we see Copenhagen Games reaching playoffs with the two best teams from each group seeded into the upper bracket, while third and fourth battle it out in the lower.
The main group stage came to a close after five best-of-three matches in each group to determine what seeds the teams would be going into the playoffs with.
In nearly all cases, the favourites managed to prevail and we haven't seen too many surprises in second place deciders either, with one exception in group H, where Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander's CPLAY got the better of FlipSid3.

The Ukrainian-Russian team also had problems with the Slovakian lineup from nEophyte, as FlipSid3 closed de_nuke out at 16-13, while they had to come back from a 5-10 deficit after switching to Terrorists on de_inferno.
Below you can see the entire double elimination bracket match-ups in the bracket order:
