they almost beat them at Chicago.
G2 and Fnatic are the teams to look out for in 2019 imo.
Liquid- will be around the same level.
Astralis- has to start spiraling down, its gonna be slow but its surely going to happen, others teams will catch up with the meta and anti strat too much, the players have to start dropping in motivation.
FaZe- will do the same as in this year, i dont think they will stick with Adren and they will just win a few odd tournaments like this year, this roster is a failure since it isnt dominating with the level of skill they have, too big egos in team i guess, i dont think they'll find a fitting fifth soon.
G2- Got close to beating fnatic at PLG with the new roster, the French scene's comeback is happening in 2019 with G2. The organization finally took over the team and the control, kicked smithzz and ex6 and Ocelote is determined as fuck and now that he has control he'll make them work real hard. Shox got smithzz kicked and has his career on the line, he will make the comeback to the top.
G2's rise may not happen with this roster, but the comeback to the top is inevitable now that the players have no control, got their confidence crushed and have to work for that paycheck.
My prediction is that bodyy will get the kick and they will bring a co leader to help Shox more so he can freely frag while leading like in 2016.
Mouz- Wont be in the top 5, their firepower is limited, i dont know if they are happy with that but they've already achieved much more than what ppl predicted with those players.
MiBR- Not sure, i dont think felps is the solution. They will comeback later or sooner though, +yuurih or kscerato.
NiP- Will win 1 big tourny.
BiG- will get a better sniper instead of Smooya and get into the top 5.
