Even if Gambit wins it doesn't mean they are the new Astralis. They can fall off a cliff at any moment, no need to wish them bad fortune. If they do fall off, they made their own bed getting complacent being #1. Let them enjoy the top while they can, lets see how long they can stay there when LANs return!

Group A will be a surprise I feel like, I think Akuma is going to surprise people again. forZe will also get out of this group I think. I think that Gambit and NaVi are going to be upset a lot. For Group B I think Spirit is going to do it, and Entropiq maybe, I think that VP is going to have a huge fail here. GL to all the teams.

No train, no wins for Navi. They NEED train to advance anywhere relevant. Navi going to have a very bad year because that's the one map that gave them those extra map wins that barely got them to won.

That's an obvious and ill-informed lie, both statistically and in general as well. Simply putting caps won't make it true.

Imo it's a really bad system 2 round-robin groups, where only 2 teams from each group will advance to double-elimination play-offs for 4 teams, with Bo3 consolidation final and Bo5 grand final being on the same day. Also both NaVi and Gambit in group A. Either other 3 teams are doomed or some weird upset happens and one of NaVi / Gambit won't get any points
