A total of 16 teams will be competing in the Berlin Major. For Majors, four teams from each region qualify, including APAC North and South, Europe, LATAM, and North America.

Fan-favorites G2 Esports will try to get back to the top in front of their people, as the team's headquarters are just 400 meters away from the venue.

However, Astralis arguably are the favorites to take it home. After losing Charlotte's Grand Final against DarkZero Esports, the Americans want to redeem themselves in the lion's den, Europe.

People also expect DWG KIA to do well in Berlin, as the Koreans are considered to be APAC's best bullet at the Major -- which would be the very first international win for an Asian team in Siege.

Meanwhile, Brazilian rosters are hungry to demonstrate their real potential, after w7m esports and FURIA Esports were not allowed to travel to Charlotte due to visa issues.
