Group B is TSM, M5, but Sk and sypher looking powerful and group A probably Fnatic and CLG, but Dig can always have a say imo

I think CLG should come out on top of Group A since it's a much easier group. I say much easier because Dignitas hasn't been practicing that much and Fnatic seems to have fallen hard if you look at their recent tournaments. Millenium has been pretty strong lately so I would probably pick them to be the biggest challenge to CLG. I don't know much about iG except from what I've heard the CLG members say about them. From what I've heard they are a strong team (especially with Mikako Tabe and Whitezz) but are still young when it comes to competitive play so I think could finish 3rd in the group at best. Same thing for WE, CLG beat them in Korea and I expect the same for a tournament of this magnitude.

I really don't know who will come out of top of Group B. I want to say TSM since they are practicing really hard on the EU-W server right now so they should have a good indication of how the EU teams are running comps. M5 will have to bring something new to the table if they want to surpass TSM again, I don't think using the same tactics as Kiev will prove to be as effective. Sypher has been doing really well and keeps improving. I think they could steal a game from TSM if they play really well with minimal mistakes. I think they will surprise some people and could sneak in to 2nd place in the group and advance to semis. SK is a wild card, you never know what you will get. They could play pretty badly like they did in Kiev or they could blow people away like they have been lately in scrims (winning convincingly against M5). Saying that I don't think SK is as good at LAN events as they are in online tournaments so I don't predict they will make it past group stage. Ehome is another Chinese team that I'm not too sure about. I've seen some of their players in high elo solo queue here and there (on CLG streams) and they seem to be decent mechanically but I haven't seen them in tournament play since IEM Guangzhou.

So my predictions for each group are :

Group A
4-World Elite

Group B

My predictions are that CLG ain't goin far with how they are now!

Fnatic has been doing terribly in online events but they play on another level in LAN events. You guys are underestimating them.

Should be some good match-ups, but as teams are playing right now, Group A seems the softer of the two.

Time for some Fnatic action again imo :)
