Ki Nala Atum
9 herO (captain)
4 CJ Entus
After finishing creating my team, I realized that the most dominant race here is Protoss. That's why I went for a Protoss quote which is supposed to mean "We are as one".
herO (captain) - Well, obviously. Couldn't not choose herO as my captain and he is one of the most consistent players as well.
Forte - I've been keeping an eye on him since that one Proleague game where he beat Cure (funnily enough he's playing him again in Week 1). He seems to be doing well in LotV, he appears in online tournaments a lot and even advanced to Code S now. I'm looking forward to what he can show us this year.
Creator - From what I've seen so far, it seems that Creator is doing well, both in game and emotionally. It looks like Jin Air really works well for him and I believe that he can get good results this season.
soO - I needed to pick a Zerg, so I went for soO. I was considering RagnaroK since I think he has potential and I usually try to have him on my team but I decided that I should have at least one player from SKT. soO can disappoint sometimes but generally he seems to be a solid choice.
Ryung - Just because it's Ryung. I want to see him do well.
Choya - The evil mastermind himself. After picking the rest of the team, I was choosing between him and horror. Both are from MVP, so the team didn't matter. horror is good and I see him in OlimoLeague a lot (even got to play him once) but I'm not sure if he can beat some of the Proleague beasts. In the end I decided that Choya is just safer choice because there's small chance that he will give me any negative points.
Life - Probably the most popular pick this season. He's not playing this week for sure, which means he's already missing two matches. And when he comes back, there is a high chance that the whole negative attention around him affects his games, just like it did back when the twitter/girlfriend drama appeared. Of course there is also a possibility that he doesn't come back at all but that would be horrible for SC2 scene, so let's hope not. Either way, even if he brings negative points, there shouldn't be a lot of them, so it feels like a safe pick.
Billowy and Journey - No reason in particular. Players from the middle of the ranking, on teams which don't appear in my main team.
