gyazo.com/63dc26bd0462653cbd59717aae78fa.. Grayhound or ViCi? im not sure at all...so pls, give me advices about what should i do. Btw, im being conservative with my picks to get the coin, thats why ive put avangar on the 3-0 instead of others.

I went with Vici because I have no faith in the Chinese CS, but it's a coinflip tbh.

it was another guy writing that i personally go for Vici as Grayhound won against them kinda convincingly if you don't take the first map as they started slowly on that one but its really hard to predict them anyway also Vici will always get the hardest opponent based on their 16th ranking
2019-02-12 15:15
you're right but if they fight each other after 0-1 or 0-2, one of them will get a win

By the rankings they shouldn't be able to face each other. But after watching his preview video this morning he reminded me of the Elo system they want to use. But i think they shouldn't face either way.

No one cares how you call it, this is not proper name of major stage. Plus new Challengers is not a quali
2019-02-12 11:52
it is a quali for the major

No chance because 16 best team will face 13 best team so and 14 best teams face 15 best team and if there is an upset they will face the 2 better teams

Like the other guy said, there's actually a 0% chance that they can meet in the 0-3 stage. There is a rating now which can be seen here : hltv.org/news/26011/iem-katowice-new-cha.. The team with the highest rating in the stage or phase (1-0 etc.) gets to play the lowest ranked team in that phase. So its impossible for them to play each other as Vici is 16th and Grayhound 14th

I think that system is really good. It provides that the underdog teams really need to fight to get through and actually deserve it instead of getting lucky and get other "bad" teams

Go for the safer picks in the others teams to qualify while pick a dark horse as 3-0, if a team like fnatic goes 3-1 and you chose them as 3-0 you will get wrong

If you've not gone Vici you need to reevaluate your life. They're not even the underdog, they're just objectively the worst team there.

Australia c0meatm3_Bro 
i watched them play each other in the minor and Greyhounds teamwork is hands down 5x better then vici's, they also beat vici in the minor so i went vici as the worst team at the major, based on the fact they had already lost to greyhound and greyhound gave renegades a good game, and renegades are a lot better then vici.
2019-02-12 11:31
Have you done any research at all, team spirit for example play a very reserved style of cs not allowing them to get any information this literally plays into vicis play style. There is no way Vici can go 0-3 and that’s just one example

I've done a bit of research, yeah, and I came to the conclusion (along with most others), that Vici are the worst team there. Just looking at Spirit and Vici's HLTV pages without going any further into it shows that Spirit have beaten at least 2 of the teams in the Challenger's stage in the past month. Vici have lost to Greyhound twice in the same tournament, lost to Renegades, and have mixed results against various tier 2 teams over the past month. Greyhound are another contender for 0-3, but they've beaten Vici and taken maps off others so I think they can do it again (I also want Dick stickers next major too).
2019-02-13 00:55
I agree on paper Vici look worse than all these other teams, all I’m saying is the only reason renegades and gh best Vici is because they play them domestically. Some of the teams in this new challenger stage are not as versatile in adapting to unorthodox play styles. Obviously the upper echelon of this new challenger stage are that much better that it won’t matter but for teams such as Ence, a spirit a vitality, Winstrike, Vega, Avangar could potentially be upset and honestly I wouldn’t be surprise if it’s spirit mainly. For ViCi to go 0-3 would surprise me, their play style literally plays against how some of these teams play counter strike. Spirit especially have trouble adapting because of how drawn back and information reducing their play style is. Just my thoughts at the end of the day I could almost see a world where each of these teams go 0-3 and 3-0

2019-02-12 15:30
maybe they will go to group stage with 3-0, but i think in legends they will fuck up, cuz they always played vs tier2, but in legends there are astralis, navi, liquid and other
2019-02-12 15:41
0-3 or 3-0 ? Like if over results were impossible
2019-02-12 16:10
first comment it just joke, i think we can't wait fantastic result from vitality, they will be just like good tier1.5 team. i think they will lose in legends stage 2-3
2019-02-12 16:52
why spirit to go through??? also FURIA can go out 0-3 as well

Have you watched C9 play recently? They're nuts rn, so I would say they'll get through. Also, would you put Vega over Spirit?

Poland cinos 
I picked both if I remember right. Vega is of cource more experienced on majors and they always do good at these events, Spirit might choke but that's the risk of this pick. For me outside of major spirit > vega, on major vega > spirit. About c9 : probably I'm little bit "outdated" but I was neved convinced about that flusha/kioshima lineup. Maybe you are right tho.

Ok here is the tip - first pick all the teams you think will make it through. Then pick the team you think will go 0-3 - I chose Spirit. Finally out of the rest chose the one you think might get lucky and win all 3 - I chose G2 - because they are either lights out or terrible and don't trust them to get through.
