The groups have been announced for the second North American Fall Regional Championship, which is set to kick off Friday at PAX West.

In the first stage of the event, we'll see the winners of the first NA Fall Regional, Murloc Geniuses, go up against Team Name Change and Denial eSports in Group A. Meanwhile, Team Naventic will face Gale Force eSports and Astral Authority in Group B.

Here's a look at the full groups:

Group A:

  • Murloc Geniuses
  • Team Name Change
  • Denial eSports
  • Dumpster Tier Superstars
Group B:
  • Gale Force eSports
  • Team Naventic
  • Astral Authority
  • Imported Support

The eight teams will be battling for a $100,000 prize pool and the final NA qualifying spot at the Fall Global Championship, which is set to take place at BlizzCon later this year.

Although GFe, Naventic and Denial were the fan favourites at the first Fall Regional, Murloc Geniuses took first place. The upset leaves NA's top teams with something to prove this weekend, Sept. 2-4, in Seattle.
