Esports News – ESPN Esports Brazil has revealed that YeaH! and Virtue has withdrawn from ESL Latin America League Season 1 due to visa issues. It was a sad day for some since millions of fans had been waiting for the competition, and the teams involved were even hoping to get another chance.
The tournament rules are strictly followed in all CS:GO tournaments, and in ESL LA League Season 1, it’s in the rules that all teams are required to secure visas to enter the United States by the end of the round robin stage (April 28), as the next stage, the semi-finals, and the grand final will take place in Dallas, Texas.
YeaH! had pleaded to postpone the deadline, stating that they would only be able to secure visas for their players once they return to Brazil after the ESEA MDL Global Challenge, which will take place from May 9-10 in Leicester, England. Sadly, the organizers of ESL rejected the plea. Virtue, the other fallen, also failed to obtain visas in time so ESL had to pull them out after informing the organizers. Despite earning a chance to compete in Dallas after singing most of the ex-Tempo Storm Roster, Virtue wasn’t also given another chance.
According to ESPN Esports Brazil, YeaH! and Virtue’s results and current standings in the league will be voided and deleted. Virtue held a third-place rank with a 5-1-2 record, while YeaH! were in the fifth rank with five victories and three defeats. Meanwhile, the top four teams out of the remaining six from the round-robin stage will proceed to the single-elimination playoffs, which will take place on May 6 at ESL Brazil’s studios in São Paulo. The winners will take a portion of the R$ 30,000 BRL prize pool.
Without Virtue and YeaH! in the line-up, only 6 teams remain, including Furia esports, Isurus Gaming, Sharks Esports, W7M Gaming, Team Wild, and Furious Gaming. Here are the current standings (W-D-L):
1. Furia eSports 9-0-1
2. Isurus Gaming 8-0-2
3. Sharks Esports 7-0-3
4. W7M Gaming 3-0-7
5. Team Wild 2-0-8
6. Furious Gaming 1-0-9

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
