This is a BO1 for the beginning stages of the ESL Nordic Nationals Winter Finals, an event where 8 Nordic teams are in attendance to battle it out for a slice of the €15,000 prize pool.
This lineup is looking pretty stacked, not going to lie here. SKYTTEN is quite a known name for his time on Kinguin when they first signed a CSGO team and slap from Team Acer (also AliGon) is definitely no stranger to the competitive scene. On official records, CGBP has played just one match under their current name, with that being against ‘ttc’ on the 13th of November. The match ended as a 0-2 loss despite the skill levels for both sides being fairly similar.
ROCCAT is probably the only Finnish team out here right now that has established a name for itself. The last time we saw these guys play was quite a long time ago back in September at the Cluj-Napoca open qualifiers, where they were defeated by Immunity and Cloud 9. The roster has remained pretty much the same except for -nasu and +CISU.
There are some known names on here though, but not very many which truly stick out to me. Back when 3DMAX was the supreme Finnish team that actually got to a major, I recall stonde and xarte. Juho played along side jOELZ in NerdRage and I can recall sunNy standing in here and there in a variety of Finnish teams.
Final thoughts and advice
If you have a small inventory, I wouldn’t touch this match with a ten foot pole. However if you have some skins to spare, I would suggest going low on CGBP because I do think they are better skill wise despite ROCCAT being together for a significant amount of time. We really have no idea what form these guys are on so this prediction is a shot in the dark. Good luck.
My odds for this match: CGBP 55:45 ROCCAT
