This is a really trick one, and honestly you could favor either team going into this, however personally I have FaZe taking this. I feel like yes, FaZe started the year very, very slow however Kioshima has been proving to be a perfect change for them, not only he himself is performing well individually however he has brought the teams spirits up by quite a bit and it’s great to see. This may or may not just be a ‘honeymoon’ period and we might see FaZe land back to earth eventually, however for now can just ride the wave together I guess. Dignitas just back from a I’d consider disappointing LAN, expected them to make the finals, if not even win it however they got quite rekt by SK and Tempo and fell short. Not entirely sure how much Dignitas’ minds will be in this game and how much practice they have done since coming back however yes, something to keep in mind. With Dignitas you never know, they seem so meh at times however other times they can really turn the tables and go rampage on you, and predicting which Dignitas we will see is really tough, just really depends if the star players are feeling it really. Head to heads recently favor Dignitas, these two actually faced off about a month ago and it ended in a 1-1 split. Overall, I do think that FaZe on paper are the better team, of course Dignitas tactically take the cake and their map pool I feel is also deeper, so that’s that. 60-40 in favor of FaZe here.
3% FaZe under 67%, otherwise 3% Dignitas
My odds = 60-40 FaZe
My risk = High
My bet = 3% FaZe under 67%, otherwise 3% Dignitas
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: FaZe 60:40 Dignitas
I’ve always said that dignitas is the best tier 2 team in the world and they are easily capable of beating any team, this time they are below 50% against another tier 2 team which actually went through a roster change recently, FaZe replaced Maikelele with kioShima and it seems like this change worked out really well for them, their fragging power is on another level right now and that’s something they were missing with Maikelele in the team.
FaZe’s results are also great, they beat ENVYUS twice, fnatic, G2 and Virtus.pro, they lost a series against mousesports in which they got absolutely wrecked, also went 1-1 against dignitas in ESL ESEA Pro League, great results from FaZe so far, but not as impressive as people think, VP and ENVYUS are in a massive slump, fnatic had a stand in and G2 went through a roster change, that’s basically why FaZe beat all those great teams.
dignitas played qutie bad in their recent matches, they lost 0-2 against SK Gaming and that match wasn’t even close, also lost against Tempo Storm, this one was closer and they should have won this match but kinda choked, dignitas also lost 0-2 against Space Soldiers but I’m pretty sure they didn’t care about this tournament and just wanted to get over it, other than that dignitas won majority of their matches.
Everything will come down to the map pool, maps like overpass, cache and cobble would most likely go in favor of dignitas, while FaZe should be favored on dust2, mirage and maybe inferno but I think it would be 50-50. I’m going with dignitas but keep in mind that this match is extremely risky and either team can take it.
My odds for this match: FaZe 45:55 Dignitas
Interesting game here between two sides that right now are quite close in level in my opinion. Dignitas perhaps have less fire power, but are a much more rounded side. FaZe are still a bunch of aimers, who just run around playing a very loose style. Dignitas were looking good lately, until for some reason, they got completely demolished by SK. K0nfig had a horrible game, 2-17 on the first map, and they were completely out played. It seems to be the story for them, they perform well in the BO1’s on the first day, and then really poor the next. Their online form though, for the most part has been really good, and the odds for me in this game are surprising right now. I feel like the map pools match up well, and we have not seen enough from FaZe for them to warrant these odds. They made a whole load of mistakes yesterday and need to cut them out to take down the Danes. LOW on Dig at these odds.
My odds for this match: FaZe 45:55 Dignitas
