NAVI Javelins’ only two losses this year came against Nigma Galaxy in the ESL Impact League Season 3 Finals Grand Final and the ESL Impact Katowice Grand Final. With that fact in mind, it is safe to say that they are the second-best female Counter-Strike team in the world right now, and they’ll be aiming for the title.

While the Polish squad hasn’t played a ton of games in the past three months, they will be very determined to finally dethrone Nigma Galaxy, and they’ll definitely be in great shape to do so at the event.


The American-majority lineup has done well against local competition, hence why they have qualified for the ESL Impact League Season 4 Finals. However, Shimmer don’t have a favourable history when it comes to their matches with European opposition. In their latest game against Nigma Galaxy they suffered a devastating 2-16 loss.

Last time out at the ESL Impact Finals they failed to win a single map and crashed out of the group stage in last place. Any improvements on their previous result should be considered a success.
