GAMERS GALAXY: Invitational Series Thailand 2022 Group A
- Army Geniuses
- BOOM Esports
- Polaris Esports
- Talon Esports
Looking at the teams in Group A, BOOM Esports seems to be the team to most likely finish first. The race for second place will most likely revolve between Talon Esports and Polaris Esports. Army Geniuses seems to be the weak link of the group. Can they make a surprise?
GAMERS GALAXY: Invitational Series Thailand 2022 Group B
- Team SMG
Competition in Group B will be much higher. The top three places are expected to rotate between Fnatic, Team SMG and Execration. RSG, on the other hand, certainly has the potential to surprise.

GAMERS GALAXY: Invitational Series Thailand 2022 will kick off with the match between Talon Esports and Army Geniuses. Talon Esports, one of the group and tournament favourites, would not want to start off with a loss to Army Geniuses.
BOOM Esports is another team that is expected to finish in the top two places in Group A and advance to the playoffs. Polaris Esports must win against Talon Esports or BOOM Esports alongside Army Geniuses if they want to finish second in the group and qualify for the playoffs, but that's tough. A possible third place awaits for Polaris Esports.
Team SMG is also expected to win over both Execration and RSG on day one of GAMERS GALAXY: Invitational Series Thailand 2022. We repeat, no team should be underestimated in Group B.An amazing group awaits us.

- Fnatic - Execration (10:00 CEST)
- Execration - RSG (11:30 CEST)
- Fnatic - Team SMG (13:00 CEST)
BOOM Esports will likely start day two of GAMERS GALAXY: Invitational Series Thailand 2022 with a win and then face Talon Esports for the group title. It is quite difficult to predict who will win the match between the two teams that are likely to meet again in the playoffs.
In the match between Army Geniuses and Polaris Esports, Polaris Esports is one step closer to winning. Still, the Filipino team should not be complacent. Army Geniuses is a team that can surprise.
Great matches will be played again in Group B. Especially, the match between Execration and RSG can be decisive on the way to third place, and the match between Fnatic and Team SMG can be decisive on the way to first place.
