D5 are a low tier Polish team which ha most recently been seen participating in the ESL Polish Championship which promised 4 spots for a $5,300 LAN final. Distinct 5 lost both of their matches 0-2 against eBettle and 31337 and were promptly sent home – not even passing the group stage. Other than that event, there is very little information of this team playing in an official/professional environment. Judging from their results at the event, I would place this team in the T4/3 category.
NextPlease is the second best team coming out of Romania after XPC. The team has been together for quite some time now but they were last seen playing against XPC in early June at the Balkan Championships. However, we have seen the players more recently represent Romania in the World Championships. I do think that NextPlease has a very good chance to take this BO3 since we have seen the players play more matches in the past, and they are pretty talented.
We haven’t seen NextPlease play too much in the past few months, but there are some powerful fraggers on the team. We don’t know what form they are in (this goes for both of the teams), but NextPlease should be able to take this series home over Distinct 5. There really isn’t too much information about Distinct 5 and I’m just basing my judgement of them by their performances at ESL.
My odds for this match: DT5 30:70 neXtP
