Team Tickles: Team Tickles have proven against all odds their might in the DPC. In over 8 weeks of Winter qualifiers, they have finished 2nd on the table. Considering their performance, they should finish at the top.

HellRaisers: HellRaisers are quite a strong roster. Except, they have performed quite poorly throughout the season. Stats wise, we expect them to finish second as the championship proceeds.

NaVi: NaVi has found their winning ways back. But, there is much to work on the skill gap against the top teams. Yet, their experience makes them formidable opponents.
