Vici are definitely the favourites based on recent event performance AND have the home team advantage, but with this being the largest esport prizepool ever being the favourite puts a big target on your back- teams will be working on "anti vici" strategies to bring to TI.

On balance I think Vici should win but one can't rule out Secret or Liquid.

How about this? https://www.liquiddota.com/forum/ti9/550446-the-international-2019-power-rank

I am cheering for either EG or LGD to win but I don't think either of them will. Also interested to see if secret chokes again after coming into ti as one of the main contenders to win it

secret wins it all. like have u heard zais playlist? how could ur team lose when ur offlaners brain functions faster than a NASA super computer

also rooting for EG bcus U.s.a.!!! (lol), LGD bcus fy n xNova deserve a TI title, and VP bcus it’d be cool if they didn’t choke a TI appearance for once. also idk why I feel like there’s no world where vici takes it home in their home land, too much pressure I guess?

If anyone thought the Chinese fans were harsh on their teams when they don't happen to win in TI grands, imagine how bad its gonna be if that happens on home soil. Worse if they miss finals completely this year (decent chance VG or maybe LGD get there though).

oof I just got the image in my head of neither Vici or LGD making it and the grand finals crowd has like 30 people in it

Chaos Esports Club will probably get a lot of praise just because people will want to see Matumbaman do well after getting kicked from Liquid so close to the tournament. Not expected to go very far though.

Past that, you'd be hoping for Fnatic/NiP/TNC squeezing their way into top 6 and beyond I guess.

Big day for EG today, hype match to start the night off with OG. I think RNG is pretty strong right now and VG is one of the favorites. If EG don't get a point out of the grudge match with OG, it could be a real rough day. They'll bounce back the neXt day against infamous, but if they don't get many points today their last day against NiP and VP could be tough.
