The #HomeSweetHome: Week 5 action features a matchup between forZe and HONORIS. The #HomeSweetHome: Week 5 features two stages, the group stage which is currently taking place and the playoff stage. During the group stage, the 16 participants are broken into four groups of four, playing in a double-elimination style bracket within a day's time. The opening match of each group is a one map, winner take all format while the following three matches are best-of-three-maps. The top two teams from each bracket advance to a single-elimination playoffs featuring best-of-three matches.
The Russian squad forZe is one of the toughest teams in the #HomeSweetHome event. They enter the day ranked 26th in the world. The team has seen a ton of mixed results lately, although they tend to be a fairly easy team to predict. They tend to win games that they should win and they won't pull off a ton of upsets.
The Polish team HONORIS is one of the newest teams on the scene. This will be their first time playing together as a team after being launched this week by two veteran Polish CS:GO players. Their roster features a bunch of veterans, but no one on the team has logged any professional action on Counter Strike, which leaves a ton of questions.
I can't pass this up. This is the inaugural match for a newly formed team in HONORIS. They will surely be rusty as none of their five players have played any professional matches on CS:GO in the last three months. HONORIS will have their hands full with the 26th ranked forZe. I believe that forZe will dominate this best-of-one contest from every aspect and cover the six and a half round spread easily.
