Astralis can't and mustn't lose this. This tournament is their chance of finally winning something this year.

I mean, G2 have problems with nexa absent, vitality will win only if zywoo's back doesn't break from carrying. Heroic - omealul. Plus, there is no pressure, perfect environment for Gambit to succceed

I think Astralis can win heroic and g2 (will be hard ofc). And vitality....well lets hope Zywoo has a bad day haha

Don't think will be hard for Astralis to beat G2, especially without Nexa

fnatic are overhyped, I think. Winning t-2 won't help against gambit/astralis/vitality/heroic

They are winning without dropping maps against solid teams (CPH Flames, BIG, Ence) For sure tougher tests ahead but not overhyped.

Agreed. Fnatic will get a huge step up in this tournament and hopefully they can deliver, it definitely has top 10 potential. Lets prove them wrong fnatic!!
2021-11-29 16:44
gambit are overhyped, winning online won’t help vs fnatic
2021-11-30 09:22
Fnatic will win bo1 over gambit and win upper bracket final in group b get to playoffs and win grand final against astralis I’m calling it ez
2021-11-29 16:45
i dont think, but lets see
2021-11-29 16:47
This would be their second event with the new roster. Not winning isn't a big deal.

Doesn't matter considering how good they have looked on Blast. They must win this tournament and they actually have a good chance since NAVI isn't playing.

There are other strong teams too who can and will beat them. Na'Vi not being there doesn't make them the favorites. They are a new lineup who other teams have very little intel on. It's gonna get tough for them once teams start figuring them out.

i mean they literally have 2 more days of practice than they did in blast ?
2021-11-29 17:12
they looked good on Blast because noone had any demos on them and they got carried by k0nfig's individual form, not because of gla1ve's good calls. Now things will be different and teams like Heroic won't loose to them like that anymore.
2021-11-29 17:30
Yes! but global final is also happening :)

Since Navi arent in the event, there isnt actually a clear favourite. IMO there are a bunch of teams that can take the W

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)

I believe Astralis can win heroic, nip, g2 and even gambit if everyone step up. Vitality is hard af but with proper practice i think they got a good chance.

FNATIC
2021-11-29 16:45
Vitality will win it
2021-11-29 16:02
Still a very new lineup, not a whole lot of time to come up with something new

They did very good in Blast so i think they should be getting better and better with each passing day. Also it gave them a big moral boost and hunger for the W.

True, but there're also more opportunity for opponents to study them

Yeah. Best chance considering the lineup, navi not playing, moral and confidence (because of blast). And also they have enough time to practice and fix their mistakes.
2021-11-29 16:09
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.

astralis/g2 will win it maybe and just maybe gambit/nip/liquid win (low chance)
2021-11-29 16:49
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
2021-11-29 17:15
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😎
2021-11-29 17:25
gla1ve and k0nfig will be good but i will lose points from kennyS on fantasy gambit is not gonna win iem, thats a given
2021-11-29 17:26
cant win with bot xyp the paycheck stealer in team

Astralis 4 majors, they don't care about low tier tournaments.
2021-11-30 09:29
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.
