1st. – Virtus.Pro

The resident team who won ESL One Katowice last year should be getting another huge boost from the home advantage and home crowd, which was one of the large factors in their win last year. This and their current run of form should allow the Polish team to take victory in the second ESL One Katowice major. If make it to the stage, they will win on that stage.

2nd. – fnatic

fnatic are a very strong team coming in to this event and many people will argue they will win. However, they will not have the crowd advantage, this will affect your mindset immensely, especially when ingame, it will make it almost impossible to come back after losing a couple of rounds. I feel fnatic will reach the final, but will have to play NiP in a match which will determine who plays in the final, this will be a game to look out for (expect many overtimes).

3rd. – NiP

With the introduction of allu the NiP team has been playing well, getting some good results recently such as their victories against teams such as TSM, Virtus.Pro and ENVYUS. NiP won’t win this event, but they will hold a strong placing. It will be interesting to watch allu at his first offline event with his new team.
