NAVI Junior Preview

NAVI Junior is the academy roster of the famed CIS organization. The roster recently signed with the organization and is slowly coming to terms with the management and is showing improvement in results.

With a 1.19 rating, B1t is the best player on the team. On an average, he deals 82.6 damage per round which is one of the highest numbers at this tier of Counter-Strike.

NAVI Junior is very strong on Vertigo, Train and Inferno. Despite these maps being heavily CT sided, the NAVI Junior roster has been successful on the T side. With this success, NAVIJunior has been able to take the advantage of a strong economy and turn it into crucial rounds.

The team lost recently (twice) to Gambit Youngsters. This was an expected result considering the huge skill difference between the two teams. However, the team’s loss to Selectah was a surprise and a big upset.


ALTERNATE aTTaX is ranked 34th and the German roster has experienced players such as stfN and mirbit. These player have been around the German CS:GO scene for a long time and have competed on some of the best CS:GO teams.

However, Kressy is the most impactful player on the team with a 1.17 rating. The young player has a very high first-shot accuracy and doubles down with good positioning and support from teammates. ALTERNATE aTTaX has set up a system where the team sets up the best chances for a victory in the round by enabling the heavy hitters on the roster.

ALTERNATE aTTaX is exceptionally strong on Vertigo. The team has played 34 times on this map in the last few months and has still maintained a 82% win-rate on the map.

Pick: Under 2.5 Maps (-164 @ Pinnacle)

I am taking this series to be over in just two maps. ALTERNATE aTTaX has a huge advantage coming into this match and should be able to crush the relatively inexperienced roster of NAVI Junior. ALTERNATE aTTaX is also very strong on Vertigo, which is one of the best maps for NAVIJunior.
