Teams to watch out for in BGIS: 2021 Quarter-Finals
Group 1 of Quarter-Finals looks quite stacked. With teams such as TSM, XSpark, Skylightz Gaming, and Celsius in red hot form, the competition in the group will be quite intense. TSM made a statement during the third round of the online qualifiers when they secured 110 points in just three games, which also included a whooping 31 frag chicken dinner.
Seasoned teams like Team XO, GodLike Esports, and 7Sea Esports would be the ones to look out for in their respective groups. Interestingly, Team SouL and GodLike Esports have been pitted against each other in the same group. With both teams being fan favorites, their rivalry will be a treat to watch.
With the addition of star player Slayer, Global Esports has found a new flair. The team's performance in the Online Qualifiers was top notch, and they finished with the top spot in their group. The team will look to emulate the same performance in the quarter-finals as well.
Among the underdogs, Team Mayavi will be the team to look out for. The team has seen exponential growth in recent tournaments, and will likely leave a mark on the Quarter-Finals Stage.
