Renegades <<< ENCE
no real reasoning here. ence has been t1 since the katowice major. if they somehow lose this, ence needs to kick aleksib (oh wait)
Vitality >? Avangar
This one is hard to predict. it could LITERALLY go either way. Vitality SHOULD take this game easily with the help of ZyWHO and co. but we all know that avangar has some crazy aimers. This could in fact turn into an upset in favor of avangar. But i think vitality should win this match every day of the week.
POSSIBLE UPSET, VITALITY 2-0 OR AVANGAR 2-1
NRG < Na'VI
Ok, so. My reasoning behind this pick, is that NRG are famous for choking/tilting under pressure + navi is literally known for sucking in groups. Cerq literally cant have any impact vs s#1mple. Na'Vi has better aimers, experience and igl. yes, nrg crushed they groups, yes they beat astralis. But remember, the crowd consisted of 20 people (no real pressure).
NAVI TAKES THIS 2-1
Liquid = Astralis
This one is really hard. My gut says astralis, my head says astralis. but EVERYONE says liquid is gonna take this. RN im very unsure about this pick. But if the veto goes right, everyone pops off at the astralis side. Liquid quite frankly, are gonna get smashed. (and stewie is gonna cry on twitter :*))
HOWEVER, i do want to point out that liquids playstyle is based around people taking duels (and winning). For that you need confidence, and liquid players themself has said that theyre not confident. Simply off this small detail:
ASTRALIS TAKES THIS 2-1 (Vertigo, Overpass and Dust2)
ENCE > VITALITY
ENCE will win this ONLY if allu & aerial does their job.
OTHERWISE 2-1 ENCE
ASTRALIS > NAVI
lul. 2-0 astralis lmao (inferno/vertigo & Overpass)
ASTRALIS ENCE REMATCH
ence has a bigger chance of winning this major than last if you look at the form of astralis. but remember, ence has not been performing that well compared to what they used to.
yes im biased, AND this is MY opinion.
