I think Cloud9, the best team in North and South America. Fnatic, of course, the best team in the world. Both teams are in good shape. I know that the Americans to the tournament especially prepared, they went to boot camps and playing with European teams (because American CS is very different from the European, they have had a great experience). The team was at the game yesterday fnatic - Virtus.pro probably discussed your current opponents and know what to expect from them. "pronax" said he was very impressed with the play of the American team, especially on a map Cache and will watch the demo, because not familiar with the game of this team.
About the tournament: the finals of the ESEA ESL Pro League, the Winner will receive $100,000, loser - $60,000. At these tournaments, the teams are sweating more and preparing for them for months. Consider the results of the teams in the Playoffs. Cloud9 easily dealt with CLG 2-0 and fnatic beat Virtus.pro 2-1. Of course, the opponents were quite different and this should also be taken into account. I think that Cloud9 would not have coped with the poles. Advantage will give the Swedes, with those large, because they are much more experienced, and if "pronax" strike out at least one of the maps (Cache, Mirage), we can expect an easy victory against fnatic.

I will describe the situation yesterday "CEh9's" words: "I do not even watch the final will (irony). It will be dry and not interesting."
My favorites at the top :) match.
If a little more constructive - that Cloud can to much both annoy champions. But ... but ... but no. :)
If you like a comment, I would appreciate a thumbs up :).
For you worked Joni Le.
I don't understand why other forecasters underestimate the team Cloud9, I think that this team will go down in the TOP 3 in the world. I, being inattentive underestimated this team, I thought that dashing team of upstarts. I think this will suit you want to undermine those who rained the whole top on Fnatic! As for Fnatic, I was just in shock when they lost to CLG and then was the percentage of 6% on their winnings!
