Complexity vs Dignitas
Complexity enter this match on a six-game losing streak, but since they were facing mostly the best teams in the world, such as Team Vitality, Astralis and FURIA, I wouldn’t put too much weight on their lack of success. Complexity were also dealing with some roster issues, so it’s hard to be overly critical of their losing streak.
On a more positive note, Complexity field a lot of firepower with Benjamin “blameF” Bremer and Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke and to be completely honest, all this team needs is for k0nfig to find his old form and they should do more than fine. Another thing worth noting is that their stand-in Jakob “JUGi” Hansen has been playing somewhat decent, so I have to admit he is not such a liability as I initially thought he would be.
I was not too high on Dignitas ahead of this tournament, but they have surprised me with what they have shown against OG. I would even go so far to say that they deserved to win that match and perhaps they would have if a few rounds went their way.
After narrowly losing on Train (14-16), Dignitas struck back and humiliated OG with a 16-3 win on Train, which made it seem like they will walk away with a W. Things, however, did not go their way as they fell short on Dust2 with 14-16.
Even though DIG have impressed me, they’re still the same team that lost against the likes of Sinners and AVEZ. Complexity, on the other side, severely underperformed against Fnatic so I have faith they have a lot more to show. Bet on Complexity to get back to their winning ways.
Prediction: Complexity -1.50 Maps, 2.49 at Pinnacle
FaZe Clan vs MIBR
FaZe Clan looked completely hopeless in their match against mousesports, which they lost 0-2 with 6-16 on Mirage and 4-16 on Train. It goes without saying FaZe underperformed across the board with their “best player” Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjærbye managing only 25 frags and 0.84 HLTV rating.
At this point, I’m not even sure whether FaZe put in any preparation for this tournament as it certainly seemed like they didn’t. Adding to that, the morale in the team is at an all-time low with pending roster changes, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they end up getting eliminated by MiBR here.
In the cs_summit 7 Day 2 article I predicted that MiBR might be stronger than what the betting odds suggest which was true to some degree, but they failed to take advantages they had in their game against Heroic and ended up losing with 14-16 on Overpass and 9-16 on Vertigo. Nevertheless, we must give MiBR some slack for their loss since they had to face Heroic, who were only a couple of months ago the no.1 team in the EU.
The quality difference should be noticeable here, but I don’t fancy the current FaZe Clan roster. MiBR might have failed in their tournament opener, but they performed very well considering the quality of the team they had to face.
If MiBR can show something similar here, they should easily win a map and I wouldn’t even be surprised if they can 2-0 the shaky FaZe Clan. Bet on MIBR to make it interesting!
Prediction: MIBR to win, 2.25 at Pinnacle
Ninjas in Pyjamas vs Cloud9
Cloud9 have yet to impress me since their roster rebuild. They finished third-fourth at the MIDNITE Nine to Five 7, fifth-eighth at the DreamHack Masters Winter 2020 Europe and 11-12th at the Flashpoint 2, where they lost both of their games against Virtus.pro and OG.
Cloud9 won only 41.7% of their matches across the last three months, which does not look too good, but since this is a new team that lacks synergy, winning one-fourth of their games is not particularly bad.
I must give Cloud9 some praise for taking one map off FURIA yesterday, but sadly they were unable to seal the deal. FURIA took the series lead with 16-14 on Inferno, C9 struck back with a commanding 16-6 win on Nuke, but then fell short on Train (11-16) even though they held a 9-6 lead before switching over to T-Side.
Their next opponents, Ninjas in Pyjamas played like a complete mess against Virtus.pro and I simply can’t find the right words to express how poorly they did. Maybe saying they were playing like crap would be the best way to put it.
If NiP don’t improve upon their showing against VP, Cloud9 should roll over them without any real issues. At these odds, however, I am not ready to take their side, as I still have faith that NiP had a bad day. The value should be with Ninjas here.
Prediction: Ninjas in Pyjamas to win, 1.892
