Predictions

Am a bit nervous to bet on this game as Vexed are not a terrible side, even if they do have Hyper missing. They still showed a decent enough level against Ence the other day, with amazing comebacks on both maps. Overall they will be weaker however, as a stand-in can change a lot in your set ups and executes, and spots, and synergy. It makes your team a lot weaker regardless of how skilled the player is or not.

I worry slightly for SK as in mag1ksb0y he has not really set the world alight on LAN yet, and if you see his KDR between LAN and online it is quite different. He is incredibly young, and should get better the more events as he plays at, as he is incredibly inexperienced. They do have a lot of experience in Friis and MODII and that SHOULD be enough to take them through this game relatively comfortably.

I would not suggest going above LOW on a game like this, as I worry it could be closed. With how SK have been playing recently, and Vexed with a stand-in, the most logical thing to do is to go LOW on SK to take this game, even with the odds being bad.

My odds for this match: SK Gaming 65:35 Vexed

Should be an easy match for SK Gaming honestly, they spent a lot of time preparing for this match and managed to pull off few sick upsets recently, they won both maps against Na`Vi in the ESL ESEA Pro League, beat decent tier 2 teams like PENTA, ENCE and tied against E-Frag, also managed to get an overtime against ENVYUS on mirage, they should be very confident coming into this match and I believe they will take this quite convincingly.

Vexed are going through some issues with their team currently, many of you probably heard that Hyper couldn’t attend this even due to “family issues”, well not really, Vexed planned on doing a roster change and initially they wanted to get rid of Hyper, as far as I know oskarish is their tryout right, Hyper either didn’t want to attend this event with them, or Vexed just wanted to try the new player out, not sure.

Vexed are not that good currently and having a stand in will hurt them badly, they recently lost majority of their matches and played quite bad to be honest, Vexed got beaten by teams like Gamers2, ENCE, Lounge Gaming, dignitas, HellRaisers and many more, the only matches they managed to win were against mediocre tier 3 teams such as Copenhagen Wolves, RCTIC and x6tence.

So yea, SK Gaming should be able to come out on top here, I’m quite curious about the map vetoes too, Vexed will try to get cobblestone, train or mirage and these are SK’s best maps so should be even easier for the danes.

My odds for this match: SK Gaming 70:30 Vexed


Conclusion


This is a match that I think SK should be winning. I am not the biggest of fans of Vexed, they seem pretty meh to me most of the time, however lets see where this goes. SK had quite a good spree of form online, however just before this event they looked a bit meh, especially vs E-Frag. Of course, Hyper is not playing for Vexed in this event, we have Oskarish sub for them. I actually watched him play for them online a few days ago, and he did quite good, frag wise at least so that is something. It does however hurt their chemistry and what not, so that might be a trouble. Both of these teams, however more so SK are just hit or miss, SK when off form are horrible, but when they are on form, they have some really great players and they have shown time after time that they can challenge even tier 1 teams. Overall, since gotta keep this quick, 70-30 for SK here. Just play the odds, they should win but BO1 meh,..
