Since no one has made one yet.

Who do you expect to win? Who do you want to win? Who are your dark horses? Who do you think will under perform or bomb out in either phase? What teams/match ups are you excited to see play? What are your pick 'ems?

Despite the recent result, Astralis is probably going to win because they definitely are holding back on some strats and device and dupreeh were insane most of Stockholm. I really want either North or Liquid to win. My dark horses are MiBR and fnatic. I think NaVi has a good chance of under performing again and mouz could also underwhelm. I'm excited to see what Liquid will do since they weren't at DH Stockholm and I would love an Astralis v North rematch at some point. My pick 'em

I feel like going through the challengers segment is actually an advantage, so I think the final is going to be Astralis vs Liquid. We'll see though.

liquid, astralis blow through qualifier, might lose to eachother
big/north probably make it through also
vp, nip, tyloo, optic, renegades i think have good shot
space soldiers, vega havent played in a while very questionable from both
gambit have been pretty weird even tho they upgraded their roster so i dont think they will pull through
complexity qualifiying was a miracle so 0-3 i think spirit will upset someone lol

then idk who will make top 8 because it really only matters when we get there

oh also rogue look like sick underdogs to make it to the next stage

CS is in a really good spot where there's like 5 teams that all have a notable chance of winning this major. Additionally, upsets are alot more prevelant between T1 and T2 teams. (Ex. North Vs. Astralis last wkd)

Gritomai wanna see space soldiers turn some heads this major

i feel like they're the dark horse of this major and can bring some upsets

they are playing 4v5 so that isnt going to happen. they'd be lucky to win a game in the challengers stage if anything.

edit: N OMEGALUL RTH there goes most people's pick em.

i feel like this is what most people's pickem is going to look like. deep down i kind of want to put a vega/tyloo/big over mouz or even navi (although simple and electronic can easily carry them through this stage of the tournament) but its just hard to do. i also dont know how i feel about the nip pick because other than beating astralis in 4OT (on a map astralis keeps trying to flex as a solid map for them but end up losing/having way too close of a game on it) they're run has been fairly easy. they looked okay at stockholm but again they had the easiest run to the semis. also dennis hasnt been playing that well in this team but i feel like they can win a few bo1s to scrape by.

swiss system is such an awful format!!!! just bring back gsl with bo3's to get out of the group which isnt necessarily the best format but its better than having the first two rounds being astralis vs navi then faze vs navi. the whole legends system is kind of a joke. also this has been a pretty bad event in terms of gameplay delays format etc.
