Most likely to win Katowice
 | 
Australia jd4ddy 
This is is my list: 1. Vitality: best looking Vitality ever imo and the most in form to win the Katowice 2. Og, mainly because of Nexa and niko finally telling Valde he can't have his stuafffff 3. G2, looking solid in the blast spring groups 4. Faze, hopefully Jks can hold his ground for Ropz to return and dominate 5. Renegades, just because I like renegades, Australia and INS's brother follows me on twitter. I know they ain't the best but I like being optimistic Honourable mention: Gambit, would like to see another back to back and maybe they win next year to become the first 3 in a row katowice winner

idk mate, it does make sense to me. By not using their best strats, there is a room for improvisation and errors that often result in chaotic plays and reduced player ratings. I would not be surprised if this was the case. Electronic looked shaky last year as well tho

An official match is an official match. Its been almost 2 years, we've jumped from online to lan multiple times, the its online excuse is no longer valid because it has been established that there will be more online events and players need to adapt or else they won't have opportunities to go to lan events

Remember their poor performance on Katowice 2021, EPL Season 13 and EPIC CIS League Spring 2021 where there were losing left and right to top100 teams. And after that they won all big lan tournaments.

Why would Navi be the favourites? They dropped too many maps to be considered a favourite. This is Navi we are talking about, not Astralis, there is nothing to suggest they are able to hold dominance for a long time

Not trash just there are some tournaments you don't see teams winning. I cant see navi winning due to the increase of quality teams. I think an upset is bound to happen and I have a gut feeling that its katowice.

''increase of quality teams'' LMAO. NAVI won the last LAN Katowice and there were Astralis with device for example. Id say better teams 2020 than now, noone knows how New G2, VItality, FaZe play on LAN.

Teams in 2021 were quality as well, especially GAMBIT (imo 2021 GAMBIT better than any of the new 2022 teams) and they were handling them after CIS rmr

1. Not vitality's best roster, atm. They have the potential OFC, but the lineup with shox and RPK was the best Vitality to date. They are indeed a good shout but i think the best they can do is semifinals. 2. Just not good enough. They looked decent at BLAST but still, they are not a team which can go all the way in T1 tournaments. 3. G2 are the only team capable of beating NaVi in a bo3 atm. If monesy performs they are a solid, solid contender. 4.FaZe pretty much the same story as for vitality. I think they will choke eventully even though i would love them to win Katowice. Max semifinals IMO. 5. Would be a nice Cinderella story, but not gonna happen. NaVi are the clear favourites. G2 or Gambit should be 2nd.
