The Western European outfit have won the last four S-tier tournaments they have participated in. It, therefore, doesn’t come as a surprise that Gorgc put them above the rest. They are hot favorites to lift the trophy in Bali and make it three Major wins in a row.
The 29-year-old briefly thought about teaming up BetBoom Team and Gaimin Gladiators in the S-tier bracket. The Russian outfit recently had an impressive run in DreamLeague Season 20, surprising everyone by making it to the Grand Final. They gave Gaimin Gladiators a tough fight, extending the series to a fifth match.
Gorgc, however, later changed his mind and placed them in Tier B instead. He clarified that although BetBoom Team performed exceptionally well in DreamLeague, he had concerns about their ability to maintain the same level of performance in a LAN environment. Shopify Rebellion, 9Pandas, and Team Liquid have also been categorized as Tier B teams. The OG streamer labeled these teams as “wildcard” selections. While they may not be considered favorites, they possess a significant potential to create upsets.
In Tier A, Quest Esports join the usual suspects PSG.LGD, Tundra Esports, Team Secret, and Evil Geniuses. The Saudi Arabian organization caught Gorgc’s attention with their fantastic DPC WEU Tour 3 Division I campaign, where they finished third.
beastoast, Team Aster, Azure Ray, and Bleed Esports were placed in Tier C, ranked slightly higher than Blacklist International, nouns, Execration, and Invictus Gaming, whom Gorgc considered to be in the bottom tier.
