Who do you want me to replace VP with? I dont use teams that I know are gonna make it through to the playoffs on 3-0 cause then I lose easy points for them making it through if they go 3-1, however VP has got qbf as their 1st opponent and there is liquid in the 2nd stage so if they worked hard enough and they have to do is win one hard game. There is no way Im throwing Vega away, they are way too strong and they dont have any respect for their opponents which is really important in bo1's. Im not sure with Gambit and I was thinking between them and mous, however mousesports tend to lose bo1 at the major, they always were and gambit is such an experienced team and they were really decent in bo1's in Oakland, so I do believe in them.

I dont want to risk 3-0, Astralis is gonna make it to the playoffs but they can lose a map or even two, so I will take easy points for playoffs. And I do believe in Gambit and Vega, NaVi was DESTROYED by FaZe and mouse and what if Zeus stops hitting the shots? He and simple are currently carrying the team and its a really bad sign if your igl needs to do the work. Mouz? They only were playing good on mirage, Im pretty sure they will be veto'd at least twice in this major.

Astralis have slow starts. I doubt they make it 3-0.

Who do you want to put as 3-0? SK, Astralis, G2, FaZe? Smart, what if they lose? For example, you pick FaZe and they go 2-0, but they lose with SK and finish 3-1, you lose easy points for them to making it to the playoffs. As you see throughout all the majors, 3-0 is usually reserved for a surprise teams like Gambit or BIG. No NaVi? Who are they better than? I see them as the 10th strongest team on the major, they are behind mousesports and Liquid cause of the draws. VP is 11th strongest for me and they are always strong on majors an bo1's, they were in a slump and they almost went 3-0 last time. Im not sure they will make it into the playoffs so I might risk it considering they are playing against qbf in the first game. QBF? They are the worst team, straight up, they didnt beat anyone strong in the qualifier and I dont see them winning a game, even BIG seems better than them.

That 3:0 prediction is a pure random but I'll say that Astralis will make it 3:0. Na`Vi can destroy Gambit Esports in their first match, then win other QBF and then they can lose 1/2 matches and go to the quarterfinals. QBF can easily pickup that first match versus VP. They can also beat Team Liquid in the overtimes. Virtus.Pro didn't play since October or November, I don't think that they are really prepared for this major, I want to pick them as 0:3.

They are always prepared for the major. TaZ is grinding the hours with Byali and I think they can surprise. People were saying VP 0:3 on the last major and they freaking almost got 3-0.

And btw wasnt Big and Gambit random? 3-0's are always random, its better to grind easy points and risk only on the hardest one to guess, than to try to go for a broke with FaZe 3-0 and then watch them go 3-1.

I know you are a fan of NaVi but admit it, they were really bad on the qualifiers.

What do you mean? They lost to FaZe Clan and mousesports. This teams are pretty solid and it's okay to lose to them.

Have you seen the game vs FaZe? Strongest NaVi map, and all they had to do to counter NaVi is to play ultra-agressive. Heck teams like Vega can destroy NaVi cause of their playstyle, NaVi is a risky choice.

As you see throughout all the majors, 3-0 is usually reserved for a surprise teams like Gambit or BIG. Thats why I pick VP, they have an easy 1st round and they are usually strong on bo1's, thats why I dont want to waste my playoffs spots and get easy points for SK, Faze, Astralis and G2. Cause who knows who wins their matchups or goes 3-1, its a lottery so I might as well go outside of the box.

Im not sure if I would pick C9, Gambit and Vega to go through. Not all of them. I think fnatic will go through. It is hard to say, it will depend on draw. Who would have thought QBF can qualify for major. Since Sk dont practice with felps, I have bad feeling they also wont go through. Or another big name like in Krakow Faze didnt qualify.
