My predictions for top 2 in every group


Group A: 1. Samsung White, 2. Edward Gaming

Group B: 1. TPA, 2. TSM

Group C: 1. Samsung Blue, 2. Fnatic

Group D: 1. Alliance, 2. Najin W Shield


Was thinking about the same thing, except for Group A since I know too little about those teams. For SK's sake I really hope they do well; it's an exciting time for them and I expect them to give the others at least a hard time.

Group B: Wait what you think Starhorn Royal is worse than TPA and TSM? SHRC nearly brought EDG to their knees lol.

they just look so inconsistent and it's really hard to predict how they'll show up

I also think the Chinese scene is weaker than last year and I'm just predicting both TPA and TSM to perform well

They still finished really close second in the scene that still is the second best competitive scene in the world. You're not going to be taken seriously if you think EU/NA > China.

I mean, it would be a reasonable guess to say SHRC to make second but for them to finish below at least two teams? Also, inclining that TPA > SK is a very risky bet as well.

I'll call you a wizard if you get it right but until that point it just seems stupid to me :p

Why do people think SK will beat tsm?

Are they not the c9 of eu at least that's what im told there more tactical players and team not strong laners.

If tsm can beat sk i think they can beat sk its a toss up group b really any team could show up and win.

No one here said SK > TSM.

In that regard though SK certainly has a good shot vs TSM if you look at their performances vs Alliance. SK certainly is just as good as some as the 2nd seeded teams. Some people actually argue SK > Fnatic based on their playoff performances.

I know im talking in general especially with MonteCristo and Thooorin they said that royal club would be first and sk second.

Then again the team he coached is about to lose to CA and go into challenger series.

RIP CLG unless they win 3 games in row.

what do you base all this on, if I may ask? Neither region has played each other in a long time and I don't think China is ahead of EU/NA at all.
