ELEAGUE Premier prediction ('cause why not)
Probably gonna be horribly wrong after day 1, but let's try.
Astralis-C9-This isn't hard actually, Astralis must take this match, everything is in their favor
MiBR-Liquid-Even tho Liquid looked weak in Cologne, I think they analysed everything, and they'll come back stronger. On MiBR's side, I think getting tarik is gonna make things even worse and make the team worse in team-play.
1-2 ('cause cold)
Astralis-Liquid-This is the interesting one. I think Liquid definitely has a chance, but Astralis will take this. They will be more fresh 'cause their first match-up, and won't let upset happen.
C9-MiBR-I'm sorry to say this, but C9 is just bad right now. MiBR getting the win easily.
Liquid-MiBR-This match will show better CS than the last one, but I think Liquid players know themselves better and they will edge out MiBR.
2-1, 3rd map probably going to OT
FaZe-Mouz-Snax will be implemented to Mouz's system and they will play better, while olof won't be on the max level yet. Upset's gonna happen.
Na'Vi-fnatic-Na'Vi looks extremely strong and Lekr0 will be IGL for fnatic, so their game will be probably kinda janky. Easy money on Na'Vi.
Na'Vi-Mouz-Na'Vi will analyze Mouz and s1mple will be god again meaning Na'Vi will move past Mouz in rather dominant fashion
FaZe-fnatic-I said what I think about fnatic above and I think olof is going to get better so it's gonna be win for FaZe
FaZe-Mouz-karrigan and RobbaN will prepare for Mouz, and Nik0 will be playing good. Even with big effort, Mouz won't get through.
Astralis-FaZe-This the big one. I THINK Astralis will take, but I'm not sure, it depends on the played maps alot. Still I'm gonna say Astralis scraping through.
Na'Vi-Liquid-Too easy, s1mple is god. Liquid's run ends here.
Na'Vi-Astralis-This will be a great match. Rematch of semifinal in Cologne. I think Zeus won't have great game like there, but still, after a long battle, Na'Vi will win. They are in excellent form and they are very motivated so take that.
2-1 2 maps going to OT
tl;dr: Na'Vi is my pick
Thanks for reading, Vale
