Who are the favourites to win? (only included 'serious' possibilities)

im not biased lol, everyone knows SKT are the best team in the world and any team would have to be extremely lucky to even take a game off of them, and if it does happen then it's just that, luck, nothing else


lmao taking MSI into consideration it's really biased or perhaps even stupid to say "any team would have to be extremely lucky to even take a game off of them". They dropped 5 games total vs Fnatic and EDG, and many would argue these aren't even the top teams at this tournament.

they are the obvious favourites but not dropping a single game? lmao

Fun fact: I regard you as so biased that I took that statement 100% seriously

Why would I be biased? I came into the tournament worried that with the dominance of teams like Fnatic and EDG, SKT weren't going to live up to the hype of a #1 Korean team, and now I'm more confident but still worried that could get upset by any of the teams they're facing.

I'm a Faker fanboy but I'm not unreasonable. I know this is the closest Worlds since season 2, and I've mentioned before that we still have to see how SKT measures up against the teams from other groups.

I think SKT not dropping a game sounds plausible.

MSI SKT and post-MSI SKT are two different beasts - Marin only really stepped up and became the captain of SKT in the season after MSI.

That being said I want EDG to win, but we'll see how the games play out since there are so many good teams this year.

MSI EDG and post-MSI EDG are also two different boots, china just sucks atm, the meta is completly against them.

And we do not know how strong EDG or SKT really are. That group was EDG+SKT+the second worst and third worst team of worlds. And the thrid worst team was not easily stomped by SKT.

Which team would you consider worse than BKT?

Thats a question? I think #freeBBG would know the answer.^^

At least BKT had a game concept.

SKT not dropping a game? Fully possible. I don't expect it though. I do see them going 6:0 through quarters and semis but I do think Fnatic can take a game off them and KT could if they don't get read by SKT like they did during the LCK finals. I even think AHQ and Origen can take a game, even though that's very, very unlikely.

You know, I would laugh if FW beat Origen today. I placed them as a bottom team, among the teams to not make it out of groups, and they take first.
