KeyD has participated in the MAX5 Invitatoinal LAN, which consisted of a handful of South American teams as well as the big dogs like Gamers Academy and Luminosity Gaming. They played pretty damn well – well enough to reach the grand final against LG where of course they lost 0-3. For the most part of that final, it was a one sided game and KeyD got absolutely steam rolled on all 3 maps but to be fair LG is a world class team while KeyD is just considered one of the ‘better’ South American teams.
At MAX5, they managed to defeat a variety of teams such as NTN, AlienTech, Gathers and G3X. In the group stages, they also tied with Gamers Academy which is also a good sign.
rEAk is one of the two Chilean teams which are participating in this small cup, and we have little to no information on them at the moment. The scene in Chile is quite small and there are only so many players which have the ability to be on a half decent team. From what I heard, FireMan is a good player but as for the others, I’m really not too sure.
Here are 4/5 player steam profiles. I couldn’t find LinkZ.
Final thoughts and advice
There’s no doubt in my head that KeyD are the better team here, but you never know what unknown teams like rEAK has to offer, and that’s a fact right there. Don’t judge a team before you see them play. KeyD has just gotten home from a LAN, and it was a domestic one so I don’t think the “post LAN effect” is going to be a factor in their current form.
I would just put down an ICB on rEAK and just hope that they could pull something off. For the most part though, the Brazillian teams playing in this cup are the strongest.
My odds for this match: KeyD 90:10 reak
