What are the opening matches of LG UltraGear Face-Off?
The first opening match is between Team Hero-shooter, led by Félix "xQc" Lengyel, and Team Survival, whose captain is Maria "ChicaLive" Lopez. This is a match-up between Overwatch/APEX Legends veterans and Fortnite pros and streamers, so it's going to be one hell of a show.
The other match is between two titans of the FPS genre: Team Delta (CS:GO), led by Tim "TimTheTatman" Betar, and Team Striker (Call of Duty), led by Dimitri "Greekgodx" Antonatos. Both CoD and CS:GO are storied esports, and so are their influencers, making this a difficult to predict match.
Full bracket preview and predictions, as well as a player spotlight of the four captains, are available below.
