The FACEIT Global Summit is right around the corner, beginning this coming Tuesday. All of the leagues around the world have almost finished up. With that, the roster for the Summit has almost been filled. The teams have now been divided into their groups so you can have a look at what the first days of competition are going to look like. Which group looks like it is going to be the most challenging?
Group A looks like it is going to be a tough competitor. This group consists of OP Gaming Rangers, Cloud9, Team Liquid, Crystal Luster, Shoot To Kill, AHQ Esports Club, Incognito and one undetermined team. The final team will either be Aerowolf Team One or Aerowolf Team Seven from Indonesia. It could also be a different region replacement.
There are a lot of standouts in this group, but two of the biggest are Cloud9 from North America and OP Gaming Rangers from Korea. Cloud9 finished in second place in the National PUBG League and always brought their best to the matches. They know how to play together and will be ready to take on the competition. OP Gaming Rangers finished first in the PUBG Korea League and are a very strong side. Their ability to put up kills will be tough to compete with in the group stage.
Group B is the only complete group in the FACEIT Global Summit at the moment, and they have some heavyweights coming into the fight. This group consists of ENCE, 17 Gaming, Afreeca Freecs Fatal, Team Envy, Four Angry Men, Brazilian Crusaders, Armory Gaming and MP5.
There is a lot of potential in this group, but Four Angry Men from China and the Brazilian Crusaders from Latin America stand out the most. Four Angry Men came in fourth in their league, but they always put up a fight. They will be looking to prove that they deserve their place in the Summit. The Brazilian Crusaders are the only representative from their region, so they have a lot riding on their shoulders. Teams will need to keep their eyes peeled for this squad.
Group C is similar to Group A in that they are still waiting on a team that will either be one of the Aerowolf Teams or a different competitor. This group consists of Oh My God, Tempo Storm, Team VSG, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Winstrike, OGN Entus Force and Blue Bees. This group arguably has some of the strongest teams in the Summit.
Out of these teams, Tempo Storm from North America and Blue Bees from Japan stand out and will be tough to deal with. Tempo Storm had an amazing run in phase one of the NPL. They left the rest of the competition in the dust. If they put up as many points as they did in their home league, there is no doubt that they will move on to the next round. The Blue Bees, like the Brazilian Crusaders, are the only representative from their region. They fought hard to come in first this time around after their last fifth place finish. They will be ready to show that they deserve to be in the Summit.
What teams are going to move on to the next round? Tune in next week to see how the FACEIT Global Summit kicks off.
