This would be their second event with the new roster. Not winning isn't a big deal.
Yes! but global final is also happening :)
*fnatic blocks your path*
Very fancy words my friend :)
Since Navi arent in the event, there isnt actually a clear favourite. IMO there are a bunch of teams that can take the W
Lets start with location and format. Will it be LAN in Denmark again?
Was just thinking about that. Na'Vi will not play IEM Winter so, there's a chance for Astralis to win this, also there's a chance for Vitality to win it, same goes for Heroic, Gambit, G2 and NiP (idk about NiP tho, just naming them)
Still a very new lineup, not a whole lot of time to come up with something new
They don't need it. Their lineup is so new, anything top 4 will be a big success for them and considered a good sign for the future. That won't be a walk in the park, though.
gla1ve vs kenny. k0nfig vs niko and blame vs hunter it's gonna be interesting
nip wins and device mvp so s1mple doesn't overtake device (cue the copium)
astralis/g2 will win it
maybe and just maybe gambit/nip/liquid win (low chance)
I think you're expecting too much, they just got together as a roster and the event is pretty stacked. I hope they can do it anyway but chances are not incredibly high
Maybe. But vitality and gambit have better chances.
Also fnatic can surprise and go all the way.
Personally i want either astralis or fnatic to win this event😎
gla1ve and k0nfig will be good
but i will lose points from kennyS on fantasy
gambit is not gonna win iem, thats a given
cant win with bot xyp the paycheck stealer in team
its LAN so I'll give 60% chances to astralis and gla1ve
Astralis 4 majors, they don't care about low tier tournaments.
Let's be real, they ain't winning any big lan event without a very good dedicated awper. On top of that, they really need to work on their T side on every map. You can't really win any big event without good awper and decent T side thats it.
They looked somehow decent in the recent BLAST tournament just because of k0nfig's good form, nothing was really special in their tactics.
