Team Liquid Preview

The team that was the best team exactly a year ago, has since slipped in rankings. Despite the determination of its players, Team Liquid could not reclaim its title as the best team in the scene. However, CS:GO fans will realize that the team has one of the highest skill ceilings in the game.

Players like Twistzz, Elige and Stewie2k have contributed immensely to the success of North American Dota 2. With a 1.18 rating, Elige has been the stand-out performer for Team Liquid, even as other members on the team are underperforming.

The team is comfortable on the majority of the map pool. But it has been very successful on Dust 2, Overpass and Nuke. Even on these maps, Team Liquid is strong only on specific areas of these maps. The team adjusts its playstyle depending on its strengths.

Evil Geniuses Preview

Evil Geniuses is yet to lose a map in this tournament, but they have also faced off against much weaker opponents. Evil Geniuses’ CS:GO roster has been on a five-match winning streak over its opponents, highlighting the team’s momentum and the players’ performance.

Evil Geniuses has defeated Team Liquid in their last two head-to-head matches. Players like CeRq have stepped up during these online matches and his playstyle with the AWP suits Evil Geniuses’ playstyle. Evil Geniuses also relies on tarik and Ethan, who are putting up impressive results. EG’s map pool is smaller than Team Liquid’s. They are strong on Inferno and Train with over 60% win-rate on these maps.

Pick: Evil Geniuses ML (-120 @ Bovada)

Evil Geniuses has the forward momentum coming into this match. The team is yet to lose a single map in the tournament and it has also outmatched Team Liquid in their last few matches against the team. I am taking the Evil Geniuses team to win this match against Team Liquid, possibly with a 2-0 score.
