Team Heretics vs NAVI Preview and Predictions – VCT 2024 EMEA Kickoff

As the EMEA League’s Playoffs begin, here’s our prediction on the Team Heretics vs NAVI matchup

On the one hand, we have one of the tournament favorites that have continued their form of last year to secure the Playoffs of yet another EMEA League. Team Heretics, in contrast, is one of the underdogs that defied our prediction and reached the top four status. These two forces are about to collide for a spot in the upcoming Masters Madrid, and here’s our prediction.

Team Heretics

This is one of the rosters we did not expect to make it to the Playoffs, and they will have to defeat NAVI to make it to their first-ever Masters. The Lithuanian Boo and MiniBoo duo have been the two key players for Heretics’ last two wins, and they will need to go big to secure a grand upset in this matchup.

NAVI has done pretty well in the Group Stage with their former teammate ardiis back on the roster, who has been top-fragging for the team so far. While they are highly favored to win this Bo3, going against Team Heretics’ unusual comps will be a challenge for ANGE1 and Co.
