Stats for the OB and Piter as they've appeared on Tipify
A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
The OnlineBots have played very well recently and they have definitely caught my eye. They could be the next ‘GPlay/E-frag’ because they are a small time team but with full time commitment to the game and practice etc they could definitely do well. According to FejtZ on his twitter, they will be playing with a very different lineup to the usual one (+-3 players). The remaining 2 players from the original 5 will be FejtZ and sperr. This change for this match is very random and a bit worrying for the team. The tweet: http://i.imgur.com/zW4d5mQ.png)
The expected lineup for OnlineBots in this match will be:
Obviously this will be a big change and I wasn’t even aware that changing 3 players was allowed but apparently it is.
Apart from a loss to Epiphany Bolt today, Piter have been doing pretty well and have earned their spot here in the semi finals. They pushed Epiphany Bolt to OT on Cobblestone before losing 16-19 but against LowLandLions and AliGon, Piter crushed them. There won’t be any roster changes for the Piter side like the OnlineBots.
Final thoughts and advice
Without the temp roster for OnlineBots, I would still have slightly favored Piter but with this wild roster that OnlineBots will be playing with, there’s really no telling how they’ll do. Most likely they’ll end up playing worse than usual because of the lack of team co-ordination/usual roles and perhaps the language barrier. This will essentially be a mix team VS Piter. If OnlineBots want a good chance to win, PUG style maps will need to be picked (eg dust 2).
My odds for this match: OB 30:70 Piter
