The Upsets start here as we see Team Liquid being eliminated at an early stage of this Major, After Liquid’s failure of advancing as top seed of their group stage, they played the Round 1 of the lower bracket and lost it 0:1 to Team Chaos E.C. Which shows why this lower bracket is dangerous and never going to be a good choice for anyone no matter how skilled they are.
Talking about the big names being eliminated .. We still have a really bunch of big names here in the lower bracket harsh road and this is an indication that more upsets will be coming to some of the fans while others will be happy watching a great match of their favorite team winning, the road will be hard for the other teams since we still have Team Secret , Ninja’s In Pajama’s , Evil Geniuses and even the number one team last year in terms of Qualifying Points Team Virtus.pro fighting to survive the lower bracket elimination trying their last hope of reaching the final match.
Are we going to witness another cool Lower Bracket road bounce-back to be the champion of this Major title, or is it going to be a stable well deserved win from one of the upper bracket rulers.
