Summary

Standings: 

In the inaugural pick ems our very own Senior CS:GO Editor Ezekiel Jonathon Carsella emerged the victor and he is looking for a back to back win like FaZe Clan are looking for back to back grand final appearances in ECS. The format is simple: you get one point per correct pick in the group stage, five in the semi-finals, and ten points for predicting the grand finalist. Each day everyone will pick a top performer and the winner will be decided by HLTV 2.0 rating and will be awarded an extra 5 points.

Summary

ECS Season 4 Finals are looking to be a spicy one despite some less than desirable teams in attendance (Luminosity, wounded Astralis), and the very diverse predictions speak to that. ECS Season 4 Finals will be the last major event of the year and with a lot of the top teams missing (SK Gaming, G2 Esports, North, and Ninjas in Pyjamas) it will be hard to truly judge who is in top form going into the ELEAGUE Major qualifier (now re-dubbed The New Challengers stage). Still the event will provide a lot of valuable information such as whether Cloud9 or Team Liquid can escape a group with FaZe Clan and Astralis or whether OpTic Gaming can win a best of three (should they make the playoffs) against a quality team. 

Regardless of the results, it will be fun to watch as we predict the event the entire way! We would love to read back what you say so leave a comment below on your thoughts for the group stage going in.
