Cloud9 vs. Renegades at MLG Predictions

Cloud9 got lucky yesterday to be honest. They won the most important round of the match and took home the win, but they could of easily lost as well after an impressive CT half. If Dignitas had managed to put together 1-2 more rounds on the T side, or start CT, they would of for sure won this game, and it is fine margins like this that mean C9 are here today and Dignitas not.

Renegades came up against a decent Gambit side yesterday on a map they had clearly been practicing. Gambit had set executes, and their aim was on point and Renegades struggled. The game was still close, and it could have gone either way, with some crucial mistakes from both sides. It is hard to tell exactly the level Renegades were at from 1 map, so we will find out more today.

Because the CT sides of C9 are decent, but the T sides are so horrible, if Renegades can put enough on their T sides, I believe they can take this game. Yam, and jks will be really important for this game and I can see it being really close, I just don’t believe unless they are on D2 or cache, that c9 have the tactical knowledge to break apart a well organised side such as Renegades. LOW on the Aussies at these odds.

My odds for this match: Cloud9 50:50 Renegades

Thoughts

Once again going to look at the map-odds for this match as it’s once again a really close BO3. The loser of this match will also go home and not qualify for the major in Columbus, the winner WILL qualify for Columbus. A major without Cloud9, has that ever happened before? If I remember correctly not, so there’s much on the line here. Cloud9 have rather been extremely lucky and should have lost against Dignitas. Inferno, Overpass and Cache were left as the three random maps and I felt like Cloud9 had no chance on Inferno and Overpass, the only map they could beat Dignitas on as it’s one of Dignitas’s weaker maps is Cache and guess what? The map became Cache. Cloud9 got extremely lucky by the random pick here as the only maps they can REALLY play are Dust2, Train and Cache. Renegades on the other hand did good, they won against Dignitas as well but on Inferno which might have been somewhat lucky as well for Renegades as Inferno isn’t a map Dignitas play a lot, the second match was against Gambit and this match honestly never felt really close, Gambit always had the match in their own hands especially after the 9-6 T side half. Renegades didn’t look good against Gambit and that somewhat surprised me as Train is a match Renegades do play quite a lot. The thing in this BO3 is; Cloud9 will ban Inferno instantly and that’s Renegades’s chance for a ”free” map gone as Mirage is a map Cloud9 can upset on. None of the remaining 6 maps are maps Renegades are favourites on. Sure, Cloud9 only play on Cache, Dust2 and Train but the same counts for Renegades, Renegades hate playing on Mirage and Overpass and these are maps Cloud9 CAN play but they won’t pick it. To start off; Cloud9 should ban Inferno and Renegades should ban Overpass as they definitely can’t play this map. Cloud9 SHOULD pick Train after that as it’s their best map, Renegades’s pick won’t really matter at that point as all remaining maps are 50-50 and really can go either way, I would give them the biggest chance on Cobblestone and maybe Cache when they start as CT there. The 3rd map will be a random pick out of the left-over 2 maps which could be Mirage and Dust2 and I favour Cloud9 on both of these maps personally. As of now, I keep it on TBA (To be announced) and will think about it as the match starts in 6 hours. It will get edited in 3-4 hours.

EDIT: I do think that Cloud9 should win as they are favoured on most maps. I am kind of scared of their shaky T side but I think they should make it although Shroud HAS to step up like he did against Dignitas, if he does NOT step up then Renegades will win. Gonna go low on Cloud9 here but it is extremely risky!
