Battle for glory
The four teams all have something to prove coming into the tournament. FaZe Clan have failed to make a statement this year but have recently found success with Marcelo “coldzera” David among their ranks at Blast Pro Series Copenhagen. A victory at the event would prove to the world that the new roster was the correct move.
NiP have not secured a victory at Blast this year. However, the currently placed #8 team on the rankings will be out for blood to prove that the veteran team has still got it in them to be a serious threat on the scene.
Team Liquid have looked quite sloppy recently. Despite having a scary start to the year, ever since their failure at the previous Major, the American side has not looked quite like themselves. This will be the territory to prove their stride of greatness was not mere luck.
Finally, Astralis will want to end the year on a good note. Having recently triumphed at IEM Beijing, the current #1 CSGO team in the world will want to attain enough points to finish out the year at the top.
