Where was the rest of the teams with no t1 experience? Gambit are the outlier. Astralis Faze G2 and Navi all placed above them. Virtus Pro finished in the same place. All 5 of these teams have 3 or more players with t1 experience and deep tournament runs. If we look at the teams with little t1 experience and deep tournament runs at IEM Cologne you'll see Spirit, Renegades, Mouz and Col in 13-16th. Liquid, Vitality and Furia all finished above them despite being alot worse recently. What do they all have in common? More t1 experience than any of the teams than in 13-16th.
