One of the biggest majors in CSGO is coming up. The IEM Rio Major 2022 is happening right now in Brazil over the next few weeks. There are 16 teams vying for a chance to make it to the Legends Stage at one of the biggest CSGO Major tournaments to end 2022. Here are predictions as to who will make it out.
As with every year, so many teams are trying to make their way through the CSGO Majors for a chance at winning the latest tournament. The winner of this tournament will automatically qualify for the BLAST Premier Final 2022 and to IEM Katowice 2023. Both of those tournaments will also have major dollars attached to them for the winners.
The 18 teams playing to join the eight already in are MOUZ, Bad News Eagles, BIG, Team GamerLegion, Outsiders, Fnatic, 9z Team, FURIA Esports, Evil Geniuses, OG, Team Vitality, Grayhound Gaming, Cloud9, IHC Esports, 00 Nation and Imperial Esports. The eight teams already in are FaZe Clan, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, ENCE, Sprout, Heroic, Team Spirit and Team Liquid.
Here are the eight teams that we predict will join the eight teams mentioned above.
- Bad News Eagles
- Team Vitality
Sure these are mostly some of the bigger orgs in the scene but that makes sense right? MOUZ almost always makes it, FURIA is consistently strong even with their roster changes and Cloud9 show up basically every time. At least one of these teams will probably barely scratch their way in.
Fans who want to make picks for each round though will want to check out websites like SkinClub Pick’em. Here players have a chance to win some amazing skins while also going to a website that is going to keep them updated throughout the tournament. This site will have news, videos of the most clutch plays and so much more for the fans to enjoy.
The Legends Stage and Champions stage will certainly require a lot of thinking. There will be less chances for players to get things correct. That is why the Challengers stage will be crucial for those who want to try and have a perfect Pick’em. These eight teams listed above are ones that certainly stand out and teams that will have a great chance of making it out.
After that, it seems like it will be anyone’s game. Will teams that make it through challengers potentially have the advantage just from the fact that they are already warmed up on stage? Can they carry the momentum from making it through and getting used to what the other teams they played have shown them? This will be crucial when deciding who may win. By the way, you can also predict which teams will go to the Legends stage on the SkinClub Pickem page, absolutely free.
The series are going to be intense as everyone is fighting not only to win some cash but also to get to some of the biggest tournaments of the next year. This is the culmination of what these teams have been practicing for. Look for the CSGO Rio Major 2022 to be a very exciting one with a fantastic crowd to boot.
