Predictions about the Opening Match
For the first time, both teams are going to compete against each other. Global Esports has an impressive record in South Asia which attracted more franchisees for the team. The team completely revamped its lineup and selected players from all around the globe. The new team managed to defeat Team Vitality on one of the maps at LOCK/IN but was ultimately disqualified from the competition.
T1 during their initial stage competed in NA; however, after receiving a franchise they shifted to Pacific Region. The team signed up players like Cloud9, The Guard, and Crazy Racoon, who are performing exceptionally well for the team.
Therefore, it is a tough call to make for the first match as both teams possess strategic capabilities along with ample firepower. Hence, observing the recent performance of both teams at the LOCK//IN suggests that Global Esports have an edge over T1.
The roster of Global Esports is as follows:
- Jordan “AYRIN” He
- Park “Bazzi” Jun-ki
- Kim “t3xture” Na-re
- Michael “WRONSKI” Wronski
- Carla “Monyet” Nugraha
The roster of T1 is as follows:
- Son “xeta” Seon-ho
- Byeon “Munchkin” Sang-beam
- Joseph “ban” Seungmin Oh
- Ha “Sayaplayer” Jung-woo
- Lee “Carpe” Jae-hyeok
