Esports News – French team Vitality secured their spot in the DreamHack Open Atlanta grand final after beating compLexity Gaming 2-1 in the semi-finals (12-16 on Dust2, 16-6 on Train, and 16-8 on Nuke). This is the team’s first Major CSGO win, but they’ve also dominated some notable qualifiers earlier this year such as the WESG 2018 North-West-Europe, LOOT.Bet Cup #3, and DreamHack’s European Qualifier. However, the fairy tale ending did not materialize for team Vitality as the faced giants Luminosity in the finals. Before giving credit to the DreamHack Open Atlanta champions, we take a look at how Vitality fought their way to the finals.
Before Team Vitality and compLexity Gaming reached their final match, they had to pass through CSGO teams Ghost Gaming, Luminosity Gaming, eUnited, Rouge, Team Envy, and Fragsters in the group stage and playoffs.
The final battle then started on Dust2 where both teams responded with strong team fights. Vincent “Happy” Schopenhauer from Vitality surprised their opponents with a triple-kill in the first pistol set on the CT side. Complexity answered with two strong executions and snatched away Vitality’s advantage over their map pick. After Vitality called in two tactical pauses, compLexity only lost a few rounds before ending the game.
Vitality got back on track on their opponents’ map pick, Train. The team secured the first six rounds in a row as Counter-Terrorists. compLexity only scored one point during the halftime as Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut led his team to 27 straight kills. Vitality then wrapped the round with a 16-6 score.
Nuke, the decider map, started out with Vitality as the Terrorists and compLexity as the Counter-Terrorists. compLexity took the 5-1 early lead. In response, ZywOo led the charge once again to help Vitality reduced their deficit to a single round. They successfully forced Complexity’s Peter “stanislaw” Jarguz to call a tactical pause.
Vitality lost another round, and the tally eventually reached 8-7— in favor of compLexity. Vitality clearly didn’t lose hope as they kept breaking through the opponent’s defenses to take the leading scores back to their advantage. After their fifth pistol series round and another anti-eco, Vitality lost the third round in a 3v2 situation when Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker executed three straight kills. Fortunately, Nathan ‘NBK-‘ Schmitt shut down compLexity’s team members and sealed the scores at 16-8, letting ZyWOo dominate the final scoreboard with 31 kills.

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.
