    Flash Wolves
    PAIN Gaming

    #faithage I like the Flash Wolves but I don't think they can beat out KOO. And I can't sacrifice my faith. PAIN can play spoiler like Kabum did, but I don't think they can become contenders to get out. Their games in the CBLOL finals were so damn long (40+ minutes each). They improved in the IWCI, but Brazil were the heavy favorites vs. weaker regions-- I don't think they can win against the early games of other regions. KOO is probably the best team in this group, but if I don't have faith, why am I even here?

    Group B:
    Invictus Gaming
    ahQ E-Sports Club
    Fnatic
    Cloud 9

    I think ahQ is really good. They dominated LMS like Fnatic dominated EU LCS, and I think LMS is stronger top to bottom. They're close enough to have constant soloqueue and scrim exposure with both LCK and LPL, and they're not weighted down by the shitty SEA teams now. In addition, ahQ has had a lot of international experience. They even beat Fnatic during MSI, and I don't think they got any worse. iG tops the group because they are a Chinese team and the meta favors zzitai a ton. Cloud 9 rounds it out because Hai will get destroyed by Kakao/Mountain/Reignover (They might be able to take a game, though. Cheese is cheese.).

    Group C:
    EDG
    SK Telecom T1
    H2K
    Bangkok Titans

    LPL is better than LCK. EDG beat SKT last time. They're better or equal in every position except top (which is also debatable if Koro shows himself worth starting). The Faker factor isn't enough-- Pawn has shown himself to be up to task of containing Faker (Their career h2h is ridiculous in favor of Pawn). Ryu will continue to die. Bangkok Titans get a nice European vacation.


    Group D:
    LGD
    KT Rolster
    Origen
    TSM

    FreeSM.

    ahq didn't dominate LMS, that narrative is severely flawed imo. Like, Flash Wolves had a better record than they did iirc? And HKE was actually the hottest team going into playoffs and the regional quals but they shit the bed in the finals both times zzzzzzz

    ahQ had a 25-3 map record in the regular season and literally only lost 1 game to a playoff bound team (HKE). They then 3-0'd HKE when HKE came up through the finals gauntlet (although HKE did lose their ADC).

    They dominated that region. Maybe even harder than Fnatic dominated EU LCS, given their finals performances and bo2 format.

    And yeah, I'm really sad Toyz couldn't go to Worlds. They choked both opportunities away. :( I cri everytime.

    Edit: Misremembered LMS worlds seeds. HKE had two opportunities to go and got fucked both times, like you said. Thought their auto qualification was more similar to LPL's autoqualification.

    So in Group A it's pretty obvious Pain will come first since they have Kami, with Koo second since CLG lost it's superstar Jungler.

    Group B is much more interesting, I have a feeling Cloud 9 will lose it's first 2 games and then win the rest and cinch a tiebreaker against Fnatic, upon which Hai will break his wrist and Meteos will come out of the crowd screaming something about Diamond 2 before completely rekting Fnatic and reminding the world why Reignover was called Gameover.

    I don't even know the other two teams in group B, so I won't talk about them.

    Group C is obviously going to be SKT/EDG and the other two teams just getting fucked.

    Unless Ryu gets to play Zed and shits on Faker, but I'm pretty sure SKT is smart enough to just ban it.

    Group D is by far the most competitive in terms of skill level, Origen has a great mix of talent/veterans and can def pull off an upset or at least a good showing. LGD has Imp, Godv, Acorn/FUCKING FLAME, and PYL so they are clear favorites imo.

    TSM has shown in the past that with it's great Coaching staff and superior prep they can beat top tier teams like CJ Entus and Yoe Flash wolves, a worrying trend for KT Rolster. They better watch out.

    My picks.
    TSM won't win a single game, fight me. Someone should make a Leader Board on lolesports.

    Anyone else been reading the top 20 players at Worlds this year that Riot released? It's been pretty fucking absurd so far.

    It's good for a laugh that's for sure. Also CLG has Xmithie back, that should make them stronger than if they had to use Huhi.

    We are living in an era where it is far more likely for CLG to get out of Groups than TSM.

    I stand by my statement that TSM won't win a game. Origen is looking far better than they are, and KT and LGD will advance easily. CLG also got the easiest group, by far.

    According that TSM documentary thing, they have been doing pretty well in scrims. Also IG (I think) said to watch out for TSM. Though that could just be IG being nice. With this huge time to practice and the new patches, it's hard to accurately predict anything. However, TSM not winning a single game would be hilarious and referenced forever.

    On another note, I didn't know westdoor is better than ssumday. Or any of other players on that list already.

    Don't take the rankings seriously. It's just the Power of Narrative at work. They're a total joke.

    Xmithie getting his visa has me excited. I consider them to be favorites to win the group. (With my #faith goggles on).
