Team EnvyUs were full of potential at the start of the Summer Split but eventually fell, hopefully they’re tapping into that potential as they’ve had a lot of time to practice; this will let them come into this tournament extremely comfortable and confident.

Team Liquid have always ran into trouble when things got tough, they’re often ending in 4th place which is a comfortable position but it’s not world class. They’ve had plenty of time to practice and are utilizing a few fresh players; this could be their chance to make it to the World Championship 2016.

Cloud9 are being talked about a lot recently, their phenomenal performances during the 2016 NA LCS Summer Playoffs deserves it too. This team has proven time and time again that they should never be underestimated and the same thing goes for this tournament, even though they’re considered ‘favourites’.

Immortals made a few shady mistakes that have cost them a lot of potential practice; this could mean they’re heading into this tournament with less preparation than usual. It shouldn’t be much of a hindrance as they’ve always got something up their sleeve.
