1. TEAM LIQUID
There is no doubt in my mind that Liquid is the best team right now. All 4 guys tend to be in the mix in every game of Summer Skirmish. In fact, POACH has been Top 2 the Past 2 Weeks and I know Chap has been Top 10 with 72Hrs twice, plus once on his own. Then you’ve got Strafe who won a Battle Royale this week.
They’ve simply shown up and they get what they deserve – 1st Ranking.
2. GHOST GAMING
This team gets ZERO hype and it’s so stupid. Pretty much every game this week, a Ghost duo was in the final circles. Of the 8 games, each Ghost duo won once.
In Pro Scrims, Ghost (especially Bizzle) are always in the mix. They own the scrims and they tear up the Skirmish consistently. There is no way to discredit this team for another.
3. NRG Esports
Look – this is VERY close between NRG and FaZe. However, NRG has shown up more it seems in pro final circles. TFue and Cloak are still both Top 5 players, but Jaomock and Tennpo bring their team down in my opinion. NRG is consistent as is Ghost Gaming. Zayt is always in the mix like Bizzle in Pro Scrims and General put on a great display this Friday.
4. FAZE CLAN
First things first, Thiefs should be on the pro team. Second, read above for my thoughts on this team. Though TFue and Cloak haven’t been able to pull out a Victory Royale, I still see the elite talent there in Scrims and the Summer Skirmish’s.
I just don’t think that Jao or Tennpo are good enough for this team to be Top 2. We’ll see if that changes, but for now those are my thoughts on FaZe Clan.
This team has stood out to me lately. Kreo and Aragon have been big factors in competitive and I just imagine the ceiling on this team if Kreo wasn’t in Hong Kong and Aragon wasn’t in Panama.
Then to add to that, though he hasn’t impressed in the Pro scene, I imagine if Ninja joined the pro team…
