It’s ESL One Katowice time! The Major that we all were so eagerly waiting for. After the fall out of Galaxy Battles 2 as a Valve supported Major, we have missed a tournament of this magnitude and hype! Definitely there were some memorable Minors along the road but eventually there’s a reason they are called Minors.
And first up we have the TI7 winners and currently 2nd in DPC rankings Liquid taking on against the CIS qualifier winners Team Effect. It’ll be a BO1 series with the loser falling down to the lower brackets.
It might look like a cakewalk for Liquid but it surely is not, given the recent performances of Team Effect, they’ll surely give Liquid a run for their money. Effect’s morale must have skyrocketed after qualifying for the DAC Major too and add the uncertainty of a BO1 to the situation and we have a good opening match in our hands.
Prediction – I have been impressed by Effect’s recent results but given that they all were on an online setting, it gives me a reason to back Liquid for this one. Yes, there is the possibility of an upset but Liquid are way too talented squad and won’t let that happen. Hence, I’ll be going with a victory for Team Liquid!
My odds for this match: Team Liquid 88:12 Effect
