both group A & B opening matches are listed for the same date. mistake or is that what actually going to happen?
I always feel FPX players have worse mechanical aim on average compare other top chinese teams. I know FPX keep proving me wrong since they always have pocket weird strategy to surprised other teams, maybe this is their thing. I still think ASE will overtake them this time.
Not really, in the past yeah but AAAAY and Lysoar have EDG level aim, arguably even Berlin but he can be inconsistent
FPX was around the same mechanical level in today's match.
ASE have made good roster changes for a more passive & strategic playstyle and it's benefitted them very well. Their result today was because they played smarter (only slightly)
Honestly, I think the most difficult outcomes to predict will be these potential matches: TE vs RNG in lowers, BLG vs TE rematch in lowers, FPX vs RA (they're both on similar level), and I guess you could argue that ASE vs TYLOO could be questionable but I think TYLOO is the weakest team in their group.
Overall, I don't think we'll see any big upsets this round of the tournament, but I do think we'll see BLG reclaim their top 4 status by knocking out TE. FPX should probably beat RA given that they pick the right maps, and chances are that RA could beat ASE to qualify for the next stage.
If y'all have any suggestions to modify my pick'em, please don't be shy to tell me, because I do want to try to make a perfect pick'em. Thank you!

Hey guys, I know this is kind of irrelevant, --and I apologize if make anyone uncomfortable by doing so-- but I made a tier list for Chinese teams on tiermaker if anyone wants to fiddle around or smth.
