Gen.G vs Team Heretics: Who will win the 2024 VCT Masters Shanghai Grand Final?

Prediction

The matchup of Gen.G vs Team Heretics is perhaps the most anticipated one in this entire tournament. The former is a consistent favorite throughout and has had an unbeaten streak so far. With a ton of firepower and clutch potential, Gen.G is a force to be reckoned with in this tournament. The most impactful player in its squad is undoubtedly t3xture, who will look to continue his form and win the championship.

Team Heretics, on the other hand, should not be underestimated either. With a dominating 2-0 victory over G2 Esports in the Semifinals, Heretics has shown its strategic prowess more than once throughout the VCT Masters Shanghai 2024. Even without MiniBoo in its squad, every other player brings in their own set of individual skills and calculated aggression. This is especially true for paTiTek and benjyfishy, who have been a consistent dominating presence in this tournament.

Honestly, this match is too close a call to predict an easy winner, and the outcome of this Gen.G vs Team Heretics match greatly depends on the map selection. Heretics is great when it comes to strategic and coordinated pushes, but Gen.G is an expert in comeback and clutch scenarios.

If the series goes beyond three maps, the scales tip toward Gen.G's favor, especially if the deciding maps are on Ascent or Breeze. Team Heretics' primary concern should be shutting down Gen.G in the early maps before the latter can find its stride and begin its crushing march.
