I'm not an expert but here we go:

Group A: Fnatic almost surely. Most likely C9 with a slight chance for luminosity.
Group B: TSM almost surely. Most likely Mouz but potentially Flipsid3 or G2.
Group C: Virtus.pro most likely. After them most likely NiP but still a good chance for Titan. Poor liquid they are a good team but they are in a super tough group.
Group D: Envy and Navi. Envy should make it no problem, Navi should also make it but there's always that slight chance of upset.

can see liquid getting out of group. if liquid is able to beat renegades and luminocity in bo3, i can easily see them beating bo1 current titan and current nip. don't remember the schedule, but if they play first match NOT against of VP, i totally see liquid going through. despite good latest results, NIP and titan arent really contenders for top4 right now.

Liquid beat Renegades when they were in a slump. Renegades haven't been practicing as much and will only get back to it once they're in the US.

Despite having Hiko, Liquid aren't good enough to trump over VP, NiP, and even Titan (IMO on the Titan bit).

So, my prediction?

Group A: Fnatic, Luminosity.
Groupd B: TSM, G2.
Group C: Virtus.Pro, NiP.
Groupd D: Envyus, Na'vi.

Possible upsets? CLG making it out of group D instead of Na'Vi, Mousesports getting out of group B instead of G2.

it very much depends of who will play who. and it very-very much depends on how teams prepared to major in those 3-4 lanless weeks.
if i would make bets, and if we assume that everything will stay the way it leveled up for last month, i would bet on liquid against nip in bo3, i would bet on liquid against titan in bo1, i wouldn't bet on liquid against VP (even though they played reasonably close at PGL finals). nip plays brainless for last couple of months, it's very hard to predict their game, but i can't see them winning on well organized teams at lans, and titan has yet to show anything on lans, even though they were quite good online (which means nothing, because it's pre-major online results, no one really cares to perform at their max level, except teams like HR/efrag/property etc, which in games with them titan has shawn very mixed results).
it's hard to predict placings without knowing schedule. especially with BO3 deciders, which makes huge differences in tight groups like those.

I'm sad for NiP frown.gif
None of their group matches are a "guaranteed" win. Even on the form NiP were on about a year ago, it's still a tough group. Liquid have been playing well (better than Cloud9!), VP are on top form (I think they'll go far, maybe win it with some luck), and Titan can never be written off (if shox has a good game, it's gg).

On the GE = Elite skill, I think the NA scene, at least last year, showed that the puggy-style of play doesn't translate well at the pro level. The reason the NA scene got a bashing vs the EU teams, was that they played with "too much aim, not enough brain". Things are better now, with more stable teams and decent in-game leadership. Additionally, when you watch pro streams on Twitch, where they play MM rather than ESEA (a rarity, I must say!), it's not true that they're dropping 40 bombs all the time. In fact, they are let down by their team quite frequently.

Schneider leaves Dignitas. Picking up Konfig might be a very good option, or even grabbing Tenzski back for Dignitas!

That's mainly because none of the pros streaming are actually trying very hard in the MM. You need to remember, once they're streaming, they're doing it for pure entertainment purposes so they need to stay focused on the chat more than the actual game. Not to mention they're typically queuing with other players which makes it harder to drop a 40.

NA scene really isn't anymore stable than it was before. Look at Conquest that just mutinied ryx, or WinterFox that's had quite a few roster changes in the last 3 months. The only team that's been rock solid stable is Cloud9, CLG, Liquid. Everyone else is still shuffling, and more shuffles to come.

Anyone else notice that Geico sponsors TSM? lol

Might as well put my predictions as well.

Group A: Fnatic, Cloud 9
Group B: TSM, Mousesports (A lot of you predict G2, but I'm not familiar with them.)
Group C: Virtus Pro, Ninjas in Pyjamas. (It will be a longshot but since Liquid is on the rise they might be able to pull through.)
Group D: EnvyUS, Na'Vi.

I'm not really familiar with G2 or Vexed so feel free to criticize my prediction.
