European Championship groups announced!

The groups of the final stage of the Hearthstone European Championship to be held on 3-4 October in Prague have been announced. The eight best players who have passed the hard qualifiers will encounter each other in card competition. $ 25 000 is at stake. However obtaining money is not the main goal the players pursue, as the main prize is a paid trip to the World's Championship, which will be conducted in early November.
Two players of our team,  Sweden Sebastian "Ostkaka" Engwall and Denmark Frederik "Hoej" Nielsen, will represent Ukraine Natus Vincere at the tournament. Only International Nihilium enjoys the same representation of 2 players at this event: Netherlands ThijsNL, who is the top 1 in Europe in accordance to GosuGamers rating, and Germany Lifecoach.
Unfortunately, Ukraine Na`Vi wasn't lucky enough: both of our players have been put in the same group. Furthermore, our players will be in one group with the abovementioned Netherlands ThijsNL. The last participant of group А is Belgium Maverick from France Millenium. It was he who defeated the best CIS player Ukraine Cloud9.Kolento, in a decisive match.
The fight will be very hard and complicated. Only two players will get to the next stage, so Ostkaka and Hoej will need to do their best to get to the top. Let's hope, they'll manage to defeat these difficult rivals, to the great pleasure of Ukraine Na`Vi fans. Follow the successes of Denmark Hoej and Sweden Ostkaka and support them with your comments! The Championship of Europe is coming, don't miss it!
