From watching these two teams play a lot recently, I have to say that Mongolz look much better than nxl. They looked really convincing against Czen, and although they threw one map, they still looked the better side, which just shows you how far they’ve come. Machinegun is a really impressive fragger, he just seems to get 1-2 kills every round, albeit not always impact kills, but at least he is consistent. Zilkenberg has also stepped up, and is now probably their second best fragger, and overall their team is looking good.
Nxl used to be a top team in Asia, but have slipped off some what. You could argue they did well to get to this final and it shows their level, but if 1nchking hadn’t played without hazy, and had their main 5, I honestly think they would of walked all over nxl. They seemed poor in places, and I was not overly impressed with their play on any of the maps.
The maps for this final are already known, D2, Cache, Train. D2 could perhaps be a close map, as we have not seen nxl THAT many times on it, and Mongolz do not have the best record on the map, so expect this one to be close. Cache should be a map the Mongolz run away with it on as it is their home ground and a map they look really good on, with sick CT set ups, and good T strats. The third map is a map nxl actually beat them on before, albeit a long time ago, and I would still favour Mongolz on this map if it came to it.
The odds are not the best for this game and I do feel nervous betting on Asian games, but would still suggest going MED on Mongolz. Seeing both sides perform, I cannot see how nxl wins this game unless Mongolz have a really off day. This is still a high risk game so don’t bet if you can’t afford the risk.
My odds for this match: Nxl 30:70 Mongolz
