Which teams are participating in Gamers8 2023?
The format for this tournament is very easy, as it’s a single elimination bracket without Group Stage. All the games will be played as BO3’s.
What games will we see at the Gamers8 2023 Kickoff?
- APEKS will defeat GamerLegion.
- After seeing both teams in recent events, I see APEKS being stronger than Gamer Legion. The Major Finalists have been struggling recently after losing some of their most important players, while APEKS is looking solid with their recent additions to the team.
- Cloud9 will win against FNATIC.
- We are expecting a lot from this Cloud9 superstar roster, and I think they are stronger than FNATIC at the moment. Cloud9 qualified for the playoffs on the last important event with buster, and we couldn’t see Ax1Le shinning as we wanted. I expect Cloud9 to win this.
- Heroic will win against Falcons.
- This is a no-brainer for me and for almost everyone. Heroic is one of the most consistent teams in the world and has been at the top for some years, while Falcons lost their most important players recently.
- Vitality will win against MIBR.
- This is another no-brainer. Vitality has been performing strong enough for me to believe that they will run over Falcons easily.
- ENCE will defeat Liquid.
- ENCE has been performing super strong recently on their last appearance, getting to the Grand Final. Liquid project looks promising, but I don’t think that they are strong enough to beat ENCE who is looking at their peak.
- NAVI will defeat a deflated FURIA.
- I think we expected a better performance from this new NAVI, but being 100% realistic they are not doing bad taking into consideration all the changes they have been doing. No matter these changes, they still look better than FURIA in their current state right now. I expected FURIA to shine with the arrival of FalleN, but the reality has been the opposite.
