This will probably be decided between Ghost and Dignitas to be honest, but I'm always expecting a good show from the BR talents yuurih and kscerato... I think they have a good chance of upsetting too.

Their biggest mistake was kicking dapr back in GX. Dapr was more consistent than pollo and was kicked to join an even better team and still be a star player there.
