An international team will win the event – All of the international teams could contend and upset American teams because of unfamiliar play styles and raw unexpected skill.
Faze Clan will bomb out – The team played very poorly at their last two LAN events.
Echo Fox will challenge top teams – Proofy and Neslo want to prove that they are still top players despite not bring in the CWL.
Parasite will return to glory – He hasn’t won a major event since UMG Nashville 2014 but has a chance to surprise everyone. CompLexity/Evil Geniuses has also won to last two Anaheim events.
