You say that the new LOUD are unbeatable with their increased map pool. You also say that LOUD have proven their worth by making it to the Grand Finals of their first masters, but lets take a look at their run.
LOUD beat Liquid who didn’t even deserve to be in that tournament so that win meant nothing
They then beat G2 who are frauds and fluked their way into the top seed
They then beat OpTic who were having an off-day, but still lost to them in the FINALS which is far more important than the earlier match, not to mention they were swept.
I think it’s safe to conclude that LOUD have in fact never proven their worth and shouldn’t be anyone’s favorites to win the next Masters.
