We can clearly see that North America’s NRG.gg had no problem flying through Group A without dropping a single map. In Group C, we see that Afreeca Freecs Blue came out victorious but did drop one map in Round 2. With the performances in Group A, we can assume that some of the teams have yet to catch up to NA and EU powerhouses. Expecting Rogue to come out of Group B with valour wouldn’t be a bad bet.

With NA proving its dominance in Group A, the eyes of the world are on Rogue to perform equally well. Rogue faces some stiff competition from Asia’s SKG. Skadi’s Gift holds a world ranking of 11; this is above Luminosity, coL, and Dignitas. The only other Asian team above Skadi’s Gift – at world rank 10 – is Afreeca Freecs Blue. Expect to see brutal matches between these elite teams on the stream!
