Alrighty so a tricky BO1 here honestly. Both of these teams while you could argue are the best ones in the tournament, well maybe WorstPlayers > Arcade, however they both lost their games yesterday. Empire somehow managed to get smashed by Digital Wave, don’t ask how, I’ve no idea. Arcade had a less embarrassing loss to Fluffy Gangsters who are making a name for themselves at the moment. I do think that Empire is the best CIS team, obviously excluding Na’Vi, HR, F3 and what not, not sure what you can or can’t consider CIS, however from around these kinda teams, Empire for me is the best. I think that with continued effort Empire has a lot of potential, however they do not seem to think so and instead spend their time doing some really suspicious stuff when it comes to high advantage matchups, but hey this is the minor, they really should be trying their best here. I do not like the fact that this is a BO1, can be really random especially since Arcade can more than give Empire and have in the past. Both teams have had new additions, upgrades too I feel. Kucher has replaced Fix for Empire, and now I do not rate Kucher at all, do not think he is very good, however he is definitely an upgrade to Fix, in the fragging and experience department so definitely bonus marks to Empire there. And ahm Soft1k is playing here for Arcade, I am not 100% if he has left Ex-YP since they are also attending this event, or he is a standin, would be a bit weird if he is a standin for an event his team is attending, so lets presume he is a permanent addition. Sotf1k is decent, hit or miss really however has had good performances vs ex YP. Overall, 65-35 in favor of Empire here for me, for their sake I hope they win this minor, however time will tell.
3% Empire under 72%, otherwise 3% Arcade
My odds = 65-35 Empire
My risk = High
My bet = 3% Empire under 72%, otherwise 3% Arcade
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: Empire 65:35 Arcade
Don’t really understand these odds to be honest. The last time these two played, Empire actually won, and seemed for the most part, the better side. I know this is a BO1, and both sides looked poor, but I am sure neither team will want to lose this game. Arcade will need mir and jR to go big today, if they are to take this. For the Empire boys, kUCHER needs to show his experienced, to guide players such as electronic to step up, and take this game to their fellow CIS side. They have always had close games before, but with Empire having the upper hand recently, and being the underdog, it seems to make for a decent 2-3% bet.
My odds for this match: Empire 55:45 Arcade
