One thing that must be taken into account when discussing Ascensions is.
Played internationally with their current roster.
You need to remember that NA scrims NA teams and SA scrims SA teams, and both have differing playstyles
Sure, The Union and M80 can be dominating their own regions, but that does not translate to international success.
Take for Example Furia, in the BR region they are not seen as a top tier team, a team of talented players? yes. but a top team? no. yet every single game in franchising NA teams struggled against them, even with clear flaws, why? they werent used to Furia, 100T is another "mid team" that suffered at the hands of their region's best but gave a hard time to foreign teams.
The true factor to take into account when predding who wins is Mental and Adaptabiity, to be thrown off by a playstyle is easy even if you prepare for it, example: PLAYOFFS NRG VS EG.
EG lost, then won, then prepped to take on NRG and lost, they werent adaptable enough to finish it out.
With all that said KRU clears every team in Ascensions
Im watching MXM vs TheGuard, These mfs ARE NOT GOOD lmao, they should be jailed for the amount of braindead plays being made, holy shit their game is infuriating.
