The other EPICENTER match will see Vega matched against Liquid. Obviously, this match is much closer than the other EPICENTER match. While technically Liquid is the better team than Vega Squadron, however, Vega is a very strong team right now.
Vega Squadron is made up of a roster which has been playing together for a long time. Vega’s roster has been well established as a premier CIS roster. They have a high level of coordination with each other and at the same time, they will also make sure that they have some good plays on certain maps. Vega is well known for their Mirage, Inferno as the go-to maps. While on the veto system, they might not be the advantageous team, they are the better team when it comes to coordination.
Liquid, on the other hand, is a team that has seen individual performances from some of its members. Twistzz, in particular, has been exceptional with his raw skill. However when Twistzz does not have a decent game, Liquid falter and that is their drawback.
My odds for this match: Liquid 68:32 Vega
I really do feel like Vega have a chance going into this one and if Liquid are not on point, they may be in for a shock. The CIS side have been getting a lot of compliments lately and rightfully so, they have a really young skilled roster and I expect big things from them moving forward. Mir is a player I would like to see on someone like Navi, and can you just imagine what s1mple, mir, electronic and ANGE1 would be able to achieve with 1 more player? It would be scary. Liquid usually save their best for the LAN environment, and if they are on point then this will be a really hard game for Vega. I do still think Liquid should win this, but I think +1.5 for Vega is a good bet, as I can see them taking Liquid on Mirage and perhaps Inferno. Overall though the map pool of Liquid is stronger and that should carry them through. Liquid to win, but +1.5 on Vega too.
My odds for this match: Liquid 65:35 Vega
