Will be interesting to see new HAVU squad in action. Weird that they still haven't announced who are they taking. I'm also looking forward to seeing AGO without mhL, interesting if they're going to show their new sniper or they're gonna play with Grashog. Sprout also debuting with 2 new interesting players, Finest most likely to play with Golden, Savage also having to replace chawzyy with someone, won't be easy, 777 with Grusarn, AGF with completely new roster, man this is gonna be an interesting tournament, seems impossible to predict the winner, I can't wait for it.

LFO gang gang. Lets go. Renegades should play more low tier level tourney like this. Not just high tier tourney but never had a chance to make it into playoff. Kinda useless. Anyway, I think EF will win this.
