What do you have? And how many points from groups? I have 9 (Vega, Astralis and North) gyazo.com/2b6bfa28f17365610451e55c6947cf..

If JW performs like he did against astralis maybe Fnatic will win but I'm still going with Gambit

That a pretty good picked. But if IMT beat BIG i think they can beat VP / North

I would like to see it as well, but in a Bo3 against VP I think it's too damn hard for them. Maybe against North they can do it.

VP are playing in their home so I think the polish crowd will motivate them and they can get into Virtus.Plow mode

Very good I think you're gonna hit it all. Although you feel that Virtus.Pro can win from SK in a final inside your home.
2017-07-20 00:54
i think exactly same with u but in this major nearly nothing happened as i thought. so i will go fnc-sk big-north and sk-north with sk championship

this major was a hard one maybe even the hardest i got also 9 points.
2017-07-21 12:46
I fucking hate that fnatic vs Gambit quarter final again same thing as last major i know im gonna pick the wrong team thats so 50/50

Astralis-SK is so hard for me, I really like Astralis but Coldzera is on god mode right now so I went with SK, all games are so hard tbh I just wish there was Astralis-IMT and SK-BIG to make it easier
2017-07-20 00:59
same, too bad team pickem's are so much about luck, which teams play against each others and stuff and you have 75 to get gold instead of being in the top 5% or whatever

yep and then the swiss system is a joke, gsl but with bo3 would the best realistic option, the best option would be playing every team bo3 but that just isnt possible

wouldnt take too much time, maybe old gsl but the 2nd games are bo3 that way you can only get to playoffs or go out after a bo3 wouldnt take much time maybe less than swiss

At this point I'm just hoping we can all watch a good level of CS on the playoffs and that PGL don't ever organize a major unless they really change

And the bo5 final would have been kinda boring if SK didn't dominate C9 but apart from that it would have been a way better major

 | 
New Zealand imgur 
yep esl gets too much hate stupid reddit think cause pgl make good dota tournaments they'd make a good major if pgl can host like 3 good tournaments then give them a major i think dreamhack should get another one just that their production has been kinda bad but who cares tbh as long as the cs is good and no stupid pauses
2017-07-20 02:50

Portugal Tomfram 
Na'Vi-F3 was paused for half an hour or 45 minutes, C9-BIG was stopped for more than an hour and they didn't even stream the end of the match, I didn't see that in any Dreamhack even ELEAGUE who organized their first major in january did a good job, but PGL just ruined this major

Hope for a SK VS IMT Grand Final but I dont think IMT can beat VP at semis, no way IMT is going to lose to BIG at BO3, for SK they can lose to Astralis but dont think they can lose to fnatic or Gambit.

If godzera shows up, walleN hits almost every shot and fer does a good amount of entries SK got this. But I don't think VP can be stopped to getting to the final

I've got 12, and the same picks besides Fnatic instead of Gambit, but if they make as many mistakes as they did against G2, Gambit will win.

You can get that one wrong and still get gold as long as you get the remaining right so you're fine

I feel that BIG got it easy in group stage so they will have higher pressure to perform. IMT make it to the legend status and most likely will play with less pressure. I will take IMT over BIG in BO3.

Also the winner of the North vs VP will play in the semi-final on the same day whereas the winner of the previous day quarter-final BIG vs IMT will have more rest time. IF North vs VP dragged into 3 map with OT, whichever team come out will be at a disadvantage. I wonder if they got the strength for possible 6 maps. If VP can win 2-0 verus North then VP looks good to be in final, i not surprise if it end up SK vs BIG.
2017-07-20 04:25
I got 13, by far my worst pick'em ever so far LUL steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/85497.. But I'll bounce back in the playoffs, this time I'll go for at least silver steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/85497..

2017-07-20 10:04
If you're unsure about which picks to make, just head over to any eSports bookmaker and look at the odds. They're not always right, but statistically they're very accurate. It's how they make their money. One bookmaker has these 4 favourites: fnatic SK Immortals (very close) Virtus Pro (very close) -Then SK and VP to move on to the final with SK winning. Lounge current odds (very unreliable atm): Gambit-fnatic 50% SK 63% BIG 57% VP 65% If you want to gamble big, fine, but you're not winning anything extra by going for the underdog here, so it's wisest to just look at the data.
