don’t make it out of groups
LDN beat gambit for the 3rd time and qualify for the playoffs
· 1. GAMBIT.
· 2. LIQUID.
· 3. NAVI.
· 4. BIG.
· 5. LDNU.
· 6. FPX.
· 3-6. IDK too hard to predict, I think NAVI could and will improve drastically over time thanks to Jady buff, LIQUID probably in the lead to take 2nd spot. I feel like everyone in this group could take 2nd spot. We'll see. Pretty balanced group.
· 1. GUILD (HOPIUM).
· 2. ACEND.
· 3. FNATIC
· 4. G2.
· 5. SMB.
· 6. BBL.
· 1-3. GUILD bias but Leo easily #1 World. I think FNATIC will improve as well with braveaf addition, so my guess is that they end definitely in top3.
· 4. I think G2 still need to improve a lot of things, and they will, but I doubt they'll be there in time to end in top3. Huge potential, nonetheless.
· 5-6. SMB on par with G2 right now, IMO. I feel like BBL is one little step below SMB right now.
Navi sucks do you even watch the games
They play on the same level as say Finest or Queso from Europe
LDN, BIG, FPX >> Navi unless the latter kick all the bots who hold them back
That's why its called a hot take.
And yes, I watched every NAVI match from closed qual 1 and 2.
You are here calling for kicks and roster changes at the bare minimum. Team need time to show off. They need to work on map comps, and they will. Jady-Cloud duo is insane.
Who do you think the bots are?
Duno? Well, they need an IGL and he is performing well on SMOKES.
Dinkzj? He is not as bad as everyone says, and he is an experimented sentinel player.
Ssk? Well, maybe, he is not the best Jett player CIS region has to offer, maybe they should look for a replacement for him, he's not a bad flex player, but his Jett is nothing optimal.
LDNU will kick navi and BIG asses easily, they have best coach of the event, MOLSI is cracked and the lineup is extremely well balanced
Ldn is better than navi but there's no way they are better than big. Big is insane imo and they are looking crazy right now.
BIG look very impressive thanks to a certified JoYnt product(twisten) but LDN can definetely take them down, dont underestimate just how hard molsi and feqew can frag when the gears start turning and boo calls well around them
Molsi is insane and LDNU>BIG in firepower but BIG strats are just way better rn, I don't think they will end up above BIG
And about Navi, I just believe in them, I think they will improve massively for groups
SMB gonna upset a lot of teams like before
man SMB needed to keep pAura
other 4 player says pAura was the problem in berlin
really. didnt know that
Did they really said that? I think paura can still improve skillwise tbh
I am not saying pAura is bad etc i think its top 3 in his role , they said on stream everyone blamed izzy in berlin but he wasnt the problem
Gmb not 1st seed from A group
At least 2 CIS teams qualify through A group
At least 1 team from champions will not even qualify to playoff
Acend not 1st seed for B group
Fnatic doesn't get out of groups, they ain't that good online after all
guild will win champions
Acend and FPX 99.99% qualify to Masters
Fnatic ACEND Guild qualify to playoff
TL not qualfy to Masters
Fnatic's Bind > Acend Bind
3/4 teams from Champion will upsets
i'm just excited to see the new guild compete, honestly i want to see if sayf will be punished for his overaggressive plays or will he be able to perform the same against the world's best.
