We’ve got a week or so ‘til the second half of the RMR, but there’s so much to cover in this whole event that we can’t avoid it.
This group is going to be f’ing chaos.
Nearly all the good teams have asterisks, and nearly all the weaker teams have upset potential. G2 have serious star power, and almost certainly won’t lose in groups... right?
That said, there’s a possibility for G2 to go 0-3, and they never miss that opportunity.
Players have the uncertainties over their head that are a bit more serious, while NIP have a new roster (ish). Entropiq are pretty damn good, but there’s always a feeling that at some point they’re going to stop being good.
We can’t describe it, but if they went out here you almost would just say “yeah, that makes sense”.
A similar fate could befall Copenhagen Flames, while Astralis are still something of a new roster. ENCE... well, we’re sure there’s some way they’re not amazing. We just don’t know what it is yet.
That leaves HEET, SINNERS, Spirit, AVE, Sprout, Bad News Eagles, Endpoint, Sangal and Anonymo. Everyone knows at this point that HEET are dangerous, and Spirit have chopper at a Major.
If you know, you know.
We’re pretty excited for Bad News Eagles, too. They’ve been winning a whole lot, and they’re the first Kosovan team ever to make it this far. Nothing to lose, now!
It’s almost impossible to know who is getting out of this group, and trying to figure it out would only ruin the magic. Sit back, watch and enjoy this absolute fiesta. It’s going to be wonderful.
