KDP is a rebuild, LGD lost some of their players and haven't been at the top for a while so I don't think their groups is as obvious. Could be some surprises but just based on known factor Group D looks much stronger.

Edit: Letters are hard, A -> D

You meant group D, right? If so, I agree with you.
I would say rebuilt Kongdoo and Lunatic Hai seems to be about at similar level based on the name values.
Element Mystic is as strong as RunAway imo based on their recent performances.
LGD lost half of its starters. Moreover, their recent form has been poor even before the players' departure. Lost twice in a row against MT1 in recent matches.
MY is undoubtedly the strongest Chinese team atm.

So
Group A vs. Group D
RunAway ~= Element Mystic
Kongdoo ~= Lunatic Hai
LGD ~< MT1
LGE <<< MY

Let's see whether new Lunatic Hai can continue to live up to their reputation of surviving through the groups of death! I think it will be really hard this time as I think EM and MY are two of the top three teams in this tourney.

Rosters for all of the participating teams.
It seems like ArHan joined Meta Athena? Am I the only one who missed this news? He should be a great addition for Meta Athena to fill in for Libero. Excited to see how these new teams will look!

Interesting, this does give them a lot of flexibility since they now have a strong Tracer, a strong Projectile and a strong Hitscan to run different comps.
