There have been a lot of massive showdowns in the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024, and now there is going to be more big matches coming up your way as the fiery matches take flight at the Wuliangye Chengdu Performing Arts Centre from April 8th to 14th. Make sure to watch the biggest competitions unfold as the shining stars clash with the hopes of reigning supreme in the contest!


What to Expect in IEM Chengdu 2024?


The IEM Chengdu 2024 will be played in two phases, with the group stages and the playoffs taking the event on full swing. A total of $100,000 will be given to the winner of the competition, along with an instant qualification for the IEM Cologne 2024 and 1,400 BLAST Premier points. For the group stages, it will be a double-elimination format with 16 teams split into two groups. The opening matches will be set as a best-of-1 game to allow faster games to take place, while the rest of the competition will be played on a best-of-three standard CS2 format.

The top three teams from each group will then advance into the Playoffs, with the group stage winners being guaranteed a spot for the semifinals. The runners-up will then advance to the quarterfinals, set as the high seed, while the teams who will end up as 3rd place will advance to the same stage but are set as the low seeds. Moving forward from that, all games will be a best-of-three series all the way to the Grand Final.


Top Favorites Who Could Win in IEM Chengdu 2024


The recent major win for Natus Vincere has shaken the CS2 world, which saw them shock the rest of the teams and fans with the way they have succeeded in their climb to the top. However, they are not set to play in the coming games for IEM Chengdu 2024, which means that the top team in the league right now would not be on your betting sights to come up with a favorable win in your wagers. This is why you should know which teams will be making a lot of noise in their games in the tournament.


So which teams can be considered a favorite to win in their games in IEM Chengdu 2024?




Astralis image

Astralis has been one of the most impressive teams in the current CS2 season. It is still a wonder as to how they have managed to emerge as one of the most fiery teams in the game. However, everyone can always attribute that to the impressive resurgence of dev1ce on the big stage, which has helped well on how they are playing right now. Everyone knows that Astralis is one of the most successful teams in CSGO, but translating that to CS2 will be a massive challenge as they hope to make the best of their chance as the ESL Partner team that will have a shot at the top. Who knows, maybe this will be a beginning of a new legacy that would see them rise to the top once more.


FaZe Clan


FaZe Clan went for a stunning campaign in their games when they battled it out at the top of the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024. While they fell short in the final against NaVi, it cannot be denied that this squad has finally found its groove with promising strides in the previous major. FaZe is expected to pick up the pace in their games and avenge their loss on the big stage. Who knows, maybe the team can come up with clutch wins in the tournament as they did in the major, but this time finish it with a win.

One of the most surprising teams in the previously held PGL Major Copenhagen was Cloud9. The team turned up the volume in the early phase of their campaign in the major, before ultimately falling short in the later stages. Still, Cloud9 has proven itself as one of the most promising teams to look out for. If you're looking for a squad to bet on that has a lot of impressive upside in their games, you can rely on Cloud9 to perform at the highest level.


Team Liquid


A cadian and YEKINDAR combo is something that fans should never forget. Team Liquid is still a team to beat whenever they have got their groove going. A lot of people recognize their growth so far, which is why there are a lot of expectations as to how they can perform at a big level. With bigger stakes and a qualifying spot for the IEM Cologne 2024 at stake, you can expect bigger strides from Team Liquid as they aim to score a huge win that will lift them to the top of the CS2 world.

G2 Esports

G2 Esports was one of the teams that challenged NaVi in their quest for a title in the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024. The team was a menace to face in the game, and they really did a great job of putting up some of the best performances in the previous competition. Thanks to massive heroics from NiKo, the team has been on the rise ever since, and they are most certainly gunning for a push in the coming IEM Chengdu, especially with their groove right now, which has been impressive in the past few months.


Why Should You Bet in the IEM Chengdu 2024?


IEM Chengdu is set to be one of the events that will open up the big stage for the next major ahead, which is IEM Cologne. This just means that the playing teams here have a lot at stake, especially with the massive prize money and BLAST Premier points that are up for grabs now more than ever. Make sure to manage your expectations in the coming events as many teams will definitely battle hard to prove their worth on the big stage now more than ever.
