    Hey everyone, I don't know if any of you like to do the CSGO pickem challenge but here's my picks and anyone doing these can give feedback if they want!

    So in the Prelim Stage I got 6 points or the top 6%. You only got 1 point per correct pick in that stage but I would say it's a good head start.

    Here are my picks for the group stages:

    And for why I did these picks will be explained.
    So Astralis 3-0 is kinda unpopular but if you look at every tournament we've had with this swiss system the favorites have never gone 3-0. ELEAGUE Atlanta everyone chose Astralis and NaVi went 3-0. (cannot remember who else did.)
    PGL Krakow it was all SK and FaZe. Gambit and BIG went 3-0.
    I think Astralis is solid enough to get 3-0 and their first match is against mouz I believe they can win against them.
    SK is pretty obvious even with Felps.
    FaZe should be able to go through after 9 finals and 5 wins.
    G2 Esports showed they could win in the prelims and went 3-0, after the role changes in the team I believe they are consistent enough to be worthy of a pick.
    Cloud9 being the strongest NA team at the moment should be a good pick.
    Gambit even without zeus showed they could still perform well.
    Mousesports winning EGS Mykonos and getting to the finals of ECS S4 and putting a strong fight against faze should be enough for them to make it through.
    The last one is kind of a toss up but I believe fnatic is a strong pick, if you saw their performance at EPL playing very solidly and now with a good IGL instead of flusha I believe they should be able to make it through.
    For the 0-3 I did quantum and there are a few other options.
    You can do VP with their current state I think there is almost 0 chance they make it through BUT their first match is against quantum, I think if they lose that their reputation would be shattered. No way they would let themselves lose that match so I think quantum is the strongest pick. The others you could do is BIG and/or space soldiers.
    I would love any opinions on these picks! Thanks for reading

    I believe these are great choices with a lot of teams that are starting to return. Such as c9,g2, and gambit.
