OMEGA League Closed Qualifier Teams
Team Empire, KHAN, Cyber Legacy, 5Comrades
Both Empire and Cyber Legacy are favourites in this group. Most of Natus Vincere that was dropped in the last 3 months have been recruited by CIS. The team looks like a powerhouse and they are sure to top the group with Alliance coming second.
HellRaisers, Voldermort, Team 4, EXTREMUM
Although the HellRasiers are favourites to win the group, they may be in for a hard time. Voldermort, the team came out second in the Northwest playoffs, showed amazing coordination and skill use which enabled them to outplay sticky situations. Extremum also performed well in the Southwest playoffs. HellRaisers may have a harder time than expected.
B8, 5Men, Tempo, Motaci
The powerhouse that is B8 with Dendi is the obvious favourites in this group. Dendi has immense experience navigating through these playoffs. He has led many times with amazing comebacks. B8 could very well go to the playoffs.
Team Ukraine, Vikin.gg, E-corp, Cyberium.S
Viking.gg will definitely end up winning this group. Their recent performance against some of the top teams in Europe have shown last month. They will surely be feeling confident about winning against their opponents especially with their experienced roster
