Ok, 2 Teams to follow here: Gambit: Andy is gone and they had some time to play with mir now, let's see if they can do something or stay Tier4 forever. Imperial: Keeping an eye on kRYSTAL here, especially interesting for Germans. Also nukkye been on the rise recently. The remaining teams are the usual suspects. Boring af, especially North.
