Pick'em GOD
 | 
Czech Republic shaggy_is_here 
Good morning ladies and gentlemen, here i come, the 8/9 pickem god (Thanks Fnatic). Here is my pickem for the Legends stage. Warning: I will on 99% change this once the opening matches will get revealed. For advancing etc they dont really matter so much but for 3-0 and 0-3, the team starting up with 1-0, has way bigger chance for achieving 3-0, right guys? I will might change 3-0 or 0-3, thus swapping some advancing team for TL. gyazo.com/11b8076d6df91220808c67a201037f.. 3-0 TL because they are good at BO1, recently beat even Astralis. Plus Stewie2k is a great addition Advancing: Astralis - Still number 1 in the world, wouldn't be surprised if they're going 3-0 FaZe - Not too sure, but they already beat C9, Complexity and BIG in the last ELEAGUE tourney. Not so good opponents, but right these opponents are in the same stage with them. Made in Brasil (MIBR) - MIBR has the qualities to go 3-0 and win this tourney, legendary 5-man squad, but can they find success in modern CS after almost 2 years of not playing together? Ence - Going 3-1 without any problems, almost 3-0. Having such a talents as Allu and Sergej, advancing should be possible Renegades - 3-0 with no problems, i doubt they will go 3-0 again, but 3-1, 3-2 seems possible to me NRG - They remind me Team Liquid, 3-0 with no problems, but can't achieve anything big. Probably not winning the major, but advancing is definitely possible with team-leaders like nahtE or Cerq BIG - This is very 50/50, but i have the feeling they can surprise, if xantares won't be dragged on the end of schedule like in ELEAGUE, they can advance to quarter-finals. 0-3 Complexity*, n0thing still plays very well, but last place in such a 2nd tier tournamets like ELEAGUE was means nothing good. *Complexity can be replaced by Vitality, NiP, C9 or even G2. #DiamondPick'em #BotDonHaci

It's jumping from 800 to 1 000 in menu but only 300-400 in-game. Just put fps_max 0 otherwise your fps in menu locks to 120

In this case, navi ofc
2019-02-18 11:43
Navi? Are you checking the news? S1mple is toxic, bitching about his tm8s. No boot-camp too, what do you think? Theres a bigger chance they will bomb out 0-3 than advancing.

Do you mean the london one? That is before this. Seems like they would go to another bootcamp after ICE Challenge but something happened (i can't say for sure that it was s1mple, and people are just speculating)

Yeah. Im not aware of if anything have happened after ICE challenge but havent seen any leaks about anything
2019-02-18 16:16
It's mostly because of this tweet twitter.com/pimp_csgo/status/10967456290.. and s1mple unfollowing zeus on instagram, and then people saying that is s1mple fault while we don't even know if is jis fault (probably is even before it, but after zeus interview he has 100% the right to be mad)

Considering that you didn't pick botvi, you're already at the top 10% of HLTV's intelligence hierarchy
2019-02-18 11:43
Thank you mr. s1mpacito
2019-02-18 11:44
The last advancing team is the toughest decision for me. BIG, Avangar and Vitality are possible.
2019-02-18 11:46
Big and Avangar > Vitality and Na'vi
2019-02-18 11:45
Avangar wont have any advantage against Vitality. NOT in BO3, BO3 is where Vitality is strong. Not even mentioning that Avangar gets a lot of job done by Jame, I dont think he would do as much against Zywoo as against other "worse" teams. Edit: Had 8/9 too
2019-02-18 11:52
Saying jame is carrying avangar meanwhile not saying Zywoo is the only reason why vitality hasnt disband yet. Sike. And Vitality strong in BO3 looks like... 25:22 and 16:12 vs a team that didn't even advance? Ok...
2019-02-18 11:56
I´ve never said zywoo is not the reason they havent disbanded yet. What im saying is that Jame wont get as much done as usual vs Zywoo (same would go for Jame if he played against Guardian etc). And Im also saying that Vitality is experienced enough to have an edge in BO3, despite latest results.
2019-02-18 12:05
Vitality is washed up and theyre incredibly lucky to meet Vici in the only BO3 they have played. I dont see them winning vs NiP, Fnatic, G2 nor C9. And now theyre going to play vs such teams like Liquid, Astralis, Faze in BO3. Idk dude, not looking good. Avangar looking better since they already played these teams X times.
2019-02-18 12:07
And i have neither of them in my pickem, because they look very weak vs top notch teams.
2019-02-18 12:08
Same here, but if 2-2 match-up would be Vit x Avg, I think Vit would take it 2-1, thats what Im trying to say.

I have your exact same picks up until I see the matchups except for renegades which I don't know... In a bo3 against vitality for example renegades can very well lose.
2019-02-18 11:46
Overall ive seen Renegades as a better team. I dont really see Vitality advancing but your pick'em your picks brother man <3 I dont want to screw anyones pick'em

Sweden Div-\ 
Ahah yeah, I guess we'll be fine, plus the fact that there are bo3s basically everywhere makes the prediction easier. The difficulties come with the 3-0 and 0-3 picks which are fairly random (complexity could win a bo1, but I still put them on 0-3, another team who could go 0-3 are G2).
2019-02-18 11:54
Actually very good pick em

Faze - not too sure Mibr - win this tourney 0/8
2019-02-18 12:50
MIBR isn't choking and they were playing together for 3 years, Faze has a new roster.
2019-02-18 13:25
I'll put faze for 3-0, and navi instead of big, and I'm not sure about rng yet

2019-02-18 14:45
Dude idk, NiP hardly advanced from challengers with 3-2

nrg wont make it out of groups imo. Yea, they went 3-0 in challanger stage, but if you look at teams they played, it wasnt that hard compare to this stag of competition
2019-02-18 14:47
and who do you think will advance instead of nrg? there is no better team.

I guess s1mple and electronic can carry navi through or nip can advance if all players show up
2019-02-18 17:42
s1mple wont carry anymore... he is ded inside nip 3-2 struggling against tier 2 teams, idk dude.

3-0 Liquid 0-3 Complexity Advance: Astralis NRG G2 (thank me later) MIBR Renegades Vitality (Zywoo going to carry) NaVi (S1mple factor) But will probably change after the matches gets announced. 8/9 in first stage, only fnatic who fucked me.

This is mine: steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetai.. Largely the same but I have the feeling RNG might not produce the same results as in the challenger stage and I kinda hope Vitality comes online during this stage. There were glimmers with Zywoo and Apex and NBK was performing really damn well so if he keeps that form and both Apex and Zywoo come alive then t\I see them making it. If G2 plays like last 2 matches then I see them doing some damage as well. BiG didn't do well during Eleague and with some dysfunction in team and a roster change so close to the major I don't see them doing well. Especially if Nex has wrist injuries on top of his normal lackluster results. Ofc EZ4ENCE so couldnt leave them out. Got 7/9 on challenger stage: steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetai..

COMMENT: What do you think about swapping Liquid with Astralis guys? :-P
2019-02-18 17:26
Nah but i believe you should try picking BIG for 3 - 0. Ofc i know there is little chance for that but as you say they are 50/50 they might destroy or got destroyed. Also not sure about Renegades, they look decent but might be just a baloon team.
