Like the previous groups, the top slots for Group C and D look to be an easy lock for the top teams.

In Group C, Na`Vi are the favorite as the second-ranked team in the world according to both and Duncan "Thorin" Shields, leaving the second slot a toss up between, G2 Esports and Cloud9. And in Group D, Astralis will likely top the group, after their strong performance at IEM Season X World Championship Katowice. The second slot could easily go to either CLG or EnVy.

The MLG Major Championship: Columbus will take place on March 29 to April 3 in Columbus, Ohio, and it will be the first Valve CS:GO Major to feature the newly standardized $1 million prize pool.
