CWL Fort Worth Kicks off today and with a stacked 16-team pro tournament to enjoy over the weekend. And what better way to get in the mood to enjoy this top-level play than by taking a closer look at some of the best in the pro bracket. Here’s who we think are most likely escape their group in first place:


Pool A Pick - Gen.G

Gen.G are newcomers to the scene, but their strong start to the Pro League has made them instant tournament favourites. They easily have the potential to stomp their group but will have to make sure that tournament jitters and other “new team” pitfalls, such as comms, don’t cause them to crash out before they deserve to.


Pool B Pick - 100 Thieves

100 Thieves have struggled to escape group stages in their recent showings. The team is relatively young compared to some of the more established teams, but are due a run of success. Having been placed in one of the easier pools, we expect to see them in the playoff brackets in short order.


Pool C Pick - Splyce

Splyce looked strong at CWL Las Vegas, but only managed to come away with a third-place finish—disappointing, considering their strong play throughout groups. They’ll be playing in a group full of hungry teams, including Excelerate’s former roster and Luminosity Gaming. How they perform against these less-polished teams will be a great indicator of their tournament chances.


Pool D Pick - OpTic Gaming

OpTic Gaming are the tournament favorites. Their first-place finish at CWL Las Vegas showed a level of play that had been absent from the team for much of 2018. Carrying forward the entirety of that winning team to Fort Worth, they look to blast through their group and use high seeding to make short work of the playoff bracket.


Honorable Mention - Team EnVyUs

Team Envy are looking for a strong showing as they’ve struggled in recent events, dropping matches to teams they ought to easily beat at CWL Las Vegas. Although they’re trapped in Pool D with OpTic, they should be able to advance if they can put down Team Reciprocity and eUnited.
