I thought it'd be interesting to predict how you think the TeamLiquid writers will power rank players going into BlizzCon, as well as any changes you would make and why. For this I'm assuming the November power rank will be BlizzCon dedicated, so only looking at those 16 players.
My expectations for TL PowerRank are:
If it came out this way I think it would be pretty close to right for me, however:
- I think Serral is probably number 1 overall, particularly in a weekender environment where he will be more comfortable than Maru without the same level of map preparation as in GSL where he has thrived.
- Although I think Neeb would be second strongest foreigner currently, and probably deserving on skill alone to be in the top 8 overall, he also has the hardest group overall. I'd expect Special to advance from his group before Neeb. So I'd swap them around.
- Has has upset potential for sure, but to me he is clear cut 16th position on the balance of probabilities.
Also I think 3-5 are pretty interchangable.
