Isn't Zoun in that bracket too? Not sure I'd rank Cure over Zoun. Based on historic results sure, but Cure hasn't been putting up those results recently (or he wouldn't have to fight his way through the Ro36). Either way, Cure and Zoun look like they got the easier bracket. Really just Has and Harstem who might contest. Top with soO, Ryung, Classic, Scarlett and Elazer looks way harder.
If I would break them into tier, it would probably be: Most likely to make it: Cure, Zoun Probably make it if they show up: Scarlett, Elazer, Ryung, Spirit, Soo, Classic Will be surprised but cool if they make it: Nightmare, Charm, Has, Harstem
Spirit doing a ByuN live on A stream, that does not bode well for his play-in run :/. (he paused due to wrist pain) edit: saw Coffee destroy Zoun in g3, he used a clever 2 base all-in with a lot of tanks on a new map with a sweet tank spot. The disruptors were unable to shoot effectively due to the rocks + reduced nova, maybe protoss will struggle this IEM? Too early to tell but Coffee beating Zoun is an insane upset imho
