Immortals? Why? Do we even know which 5 they're going to play with at Malmö? Fnatic has looked insane in their first 4 games. They look like the best team out there by far from all the online games we've seen and we know they can deliver on LAN too. Sure, it's online games and it's early in the season, but a beautiful start is still better than a bad one. If Fnatic can play like they have online on LAN they could win the whole thing, especially since most teams are rusty and don't seem very coordinated. It will get much harder for Fnatic when the rest of them is up to speed and warmed up later in the year, but at the moment they have an opportunity. Immortals, on the other hand, is a bad team, they didn't deserve to play in the major final and even with perfect conditions, they are at most an upset team. Edit: I can't see C9 winning against North after watching Valde. He seems like he's possessed by the devil and the first games I saw from C9 looked really bad. Aizy could bring North down enough for C9 to have a chance, but I don't know.

Tough matchup for C9 and NiP but i wish them the best gl tarik and RUSH for their first c9 major tournament (ESL New York Qualifier went good so i believe they can win this match against North) NiP is another thing they looked Good at DH Valencia but FaZe is very hard to play now with Guardian But how i said before gl to both of them
2017-08-25 15:44
how retarded is this? the best team (SK) gets to go against some shitty no name team, its basically a free fuckin win, at least give them some competition. and then teams like nip, vp, envy have to face harder or of equal skill teammates. who the fuckk does these draws??

the funny thing is NV just beat G2 to qualify for that ESG lan so itll be even more tense because g2 definitely doesnt want to lose to NV twice considering they are suppose to be the "super" team.
2017-08-25 19:35
THAT IS SO TRUE!! nV is supposed to be the "leftover" team from the French scene; and they ended up beating G2 in the ESL ONE NY qualifier. A lot of tension and yeah, a must watch in the group stage X)
