Three Things to Watch Out For In The ESL Pro League S7 Finals
Posted 16th May 2018 By: Derpina    328 Views
Esports News – The long-awaited ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals started last Tuesday, May 15. Sixteen of the best CS:GO teams are competing for a portion of the $750,000 prize pool, but there are only 6 playoff spots available for taking, so expect the Verizon Theatre to host a bloodbath.
As the biggest CS:GO tournament this year, the competition is set to turn tables, stage the unexpected, and tell the bravest of tales. Predictions might happen but there’s no way of knowing until the final matches. To give everyone a heads up, let’s take a look at the tournament’s biggest plots and subplots to watch out for, and think about the chances of these three becoming true.
Will FaZe remain undefeated?
FaZe | The absence of Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer in the team didn’t rattle Faze’s momentum. They keep on winning title after title with the addition of Richard “Xizt” Landström and the powerful combination of the iconic trio: Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács, Nikola “NiKo” Kovač, and Håvard “rain” Nygaard. Faze is now up for more challenges against top-tier teams before confronting Liquid and Astralis in the playoffs.
Will Astralis become vulnerable?
Astralis | As expected, Astralis defeated its enemies and have reached two finals appearances in a row, making them one of the favorites in ESL Pro League Season 7. For the past months, the team was also considered to sport one of the best rosters in CS:GO tournaments. It seems like the combination of Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander, Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth, and Emil “Magisk” Reif worked out pretty well—they are, after all, the world’s best players in using damage-dealing utility. But despite all this, critics say that Astralis should take a look at one of their biggest weaknesses: entry fragger Peter “dupreeh” Rothmann.
Can Natus Vincere’s S1imple exceed expectations?
Natus Vincere | Without a doubt, Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev is the powerhouse of Natus Vincere. He is the best player in the world, according to critics, rankings, and his consistent performances. The team, Na’Vi are now two for two in their journey to the grand final, despite losing the StarSeries and DreamHack Masters Marseille. S1mple, on the other hand, received the MVP medal on both events. Can he and his team win another title this season?
