I do not believe that current Navi roaster can contest, same for Liquid.
major is LAN, not online.
Where is Astralis? Faze wtf?
NaVi can actually surprise, certainly when everyone is writing them off and more certainly on LAN. But I think Astralis again have big chance and Gambit, if they play the same on LAN as online but who knows.
Theres no pararel universe where CoL is top 8
It's not a bad list imo. I don't think that G2 will be contenders for the major tbh, unless they find an awper and get a consistent run form right before the major.
Also, imo Astralis are clear favorites and I believe Col could be the one to defeat them
There's no contenders to list until we know who the participants are
i need your statement with argumentation to why you chose these 5 teams as contenders for major title
I dont think G2 will be in the Semifinals. They arent consistent enough and I think Niko isn't good enough of an AWPer to justify throughing his Rifle Skills away. If Gambit holds their current state they have a good chance same with VP. I think FaZe will be good. Karrigan is a great IGL and has the Team he needs to reach his goals. I would love to see coL win the Major i love them! But I don't know if they will play good enough in the Major. My Favourite Winner would be BIG bc of the way they played last year. They changed many things in the way some Maps are played etc and their starts and Util Usage was great to look at but by now I don't think they'll have a chance at a Semifinal spot.
I want to remind you to not forget Astralis and Vitality. Even tough both arent as good as 1 Year ago they will still be beasts on LAN.
Navi or astralis. Because only they can win other t1 in major pressure. And honestly navi have too many newbies so I guess astralis is the only one team to have most chance
Not G2 and not Navi thats for sure
it will be easy for tyloo
-G2 -CoL -Faze +Spirit +FURIA +NIP
"honest and actual" Dont use these words ever again silver.
TOP3 HAVU, ENCE, OG
1. Team Spirit
2. Gambit Esports
2. Team Liquid
5. Gambit Esports
ez for NAVI
GOAT s1mple MVP
complexity is way way way way worse than any other contender, i dont think they will even make it to they play offs.
I can buy your Faze clan, VP and Gambit. I dont think g2 will go very far either, with the ego of niko that team will go to shit. Bald pick for a team that hasn't won anything in 5 years.
I see Astralis, Gambit, VP, Navi, Liquid ahead of any other team atm. Maybe you can include Faze in the long run (5 or 6 months from now) Same goes for vitality, if they find their form again, could win it.
Objectively: from most to less likely, keeping in mind the long run, LAN pressure etc
Liquid (but if the final is astralis-liquid they would be way below this list)
Gambit (best team atm IMO but lack of experience other than Hobbit)
5. OG (sorry mens, have to include them because otherwise I am not delusional enough)
Is Astralis just going to die lol
Not G2. They are not playing well and putting Niko in the awp was not a good ideia. They turned maybe the best rifler around into a decent awper. Not a good trade.
Idt faze is going anywhere no matter what money they throw at cs
Depends on how quickly it will be after we go back to LAN. If it within a month or two then gambit won't be a contender but if it is longer then they will.
