We are barely a week away from the Collegiate StarLeague StarCraft II grand finals in Toronto, and our staff has a few opinions on the prospective outcome.
“Predicting the round-of-four matches isn’t too difficult. Universite de Montreal will almost definitely beat University of Waterloo and Temple University will likely beat University of Connecticut. The finals, however, present a challenge. My heart tells me Temple will beat Montreal, but my head tells me Montreal will prevail.” –Tyler O’Keefe
“I expect the finals to be between Temple University and University de Montreal. It’ll be a close match but I think Temple will snatch the victory!” – Joe LoGuidice
“I’m really excited about our sixteen teams coming to the finals this year for all our games. In terms of Starcraft II, I don’t see how the title wouldn’t run through Temple. Raze, Tesla, and company have been on a tear since losing the finals last year to [University of California, Berkeley]. They’ve gotten revenge on that loss in the round-of-eight this year to qualify for these finals, so some of their toughest competition is behind them. Their biggest opponent at the finals this year will be complacency.” –Daniil ‘CheeseHeadLogic’ Pauley
As for my predictions, it’s tough to say. I think if you go back through the playoff match VODs on our Youtube channel can give you a better view of things to come than anything I could come up with.
We had some great predictions here, but we won’t truly know the outcome until we hit up the grand finals! Tune in on May 12-14 at Twitch to catch the exciting Collegiate StarLeague StarCraft II action!
