Looking forward to seeing SINNERS with forsyy. Interesting what roster AGO will present, will they find a new AWPer or are they going to play with Grashog? Will be interesting to see flamie on Tier 2/3, I think he might dissapoint ppl even there. But I wish him GL. I think that DBL PONEY is going to be playing under new org. already, and I'm really happy for them, now that they can fully focus on playing I think they can really show some skill, I think they can win this tournament, they're an really underrated team. GL to everyone.
