Pickem FixWin Diamond
 | 
Hungary Gulaash 
Hello guys. I'm a Veteran, Global, many times Pickem winner, have Diamonds from 2019, have Golds from prehistoric times... I have some tips for you. Put a team into 3-0 that is not so sure to advance, so you can minimalize the chance of fail of not getting 5 good predictions. Astralis vs. CPH can be easily an upset match since its a national derby. Sharks is the best candidate for 0-3 but Tyloo and Pain are also good to go home fast. Many people overhype BIG but i don't feel the power in them since XantaresGOD left, but still, i listened to the people so i putted them there. Spirit could be the other option.

Why Spirit over say, Entropiq? Spirit have been on a decline all year since the spring and I doubt they bounce back

I think they are individually stronger players than Entropiqs + i've seen a lot of people picking them as an advance team. Pimp and ceh9 also picked them.

Absolutely agree that the likes of Degster and Mir are above Elian and co, but i think their strats are severely lacking with Chopper as their IGL. And maybe I just want some explanation because i also see general consensus being Spirit>Entropiq when recent results just dont reflect that imo.

Entropiq so annoying, they're a team that just feels so fragile Seems to be a common theme that I like teams that are cagey and fragile it's annoying But I agree Entropiq recently have seemed hotter than Spirit, but Spirit look very organised when they do things right. IDK spirit have always seemed super professional to me.

I guess technically, but i dont think experience really holds thaaaat much weight (consider Faze bombing out in berlin, or Spirit (with chopper and sdy at least) failing to qualify in berlin against Dreameaters (krad and forester)) Also seeding is fucked to begin with because RMR is dumb and the top and bottom seeds both contain really weak teams in each

Spirit have the number 1 seed so they will face the lowest seeded team per equal standing, Right now they face Faze (seed 16) but the other low seeds are quite bad so spirit have a very good shot at making it.

But don't BIG have low seedings as well?
2021-10-23 14:12
imgur.com/a/3qHyIAX Yeah i know i kinda went ham yesterday morning charting out every result i thought would happen hahaha. And for the same reason of the upper seeds looking pretty weak as well, I think Entropiq has a chance.

I started it, got through to the 2-0,1-1,0-2 stage and realized i mightve messed up because VP +Fl1T changed seeding orders. Got all my homework done though, so ill redo it and comment in a reply (need to be more active to post in forum) later today :]
2021-10-23 14:45
imgur.com/a/GP1V56t Here it is, I would have done all permutations with the tossup matches but holy shit that would genuinely take days, so I went with my own predictions, which you are allowed to disagree with.

I think VP will do good against lower ranked teams. They only seem to choke against the big dogs.
2021-10-23 16:41
This is almost exactly what I have, but I put Heroic 3-0 and Entropiq to qualify But I like this strategy, putting an underdog for 3-0 so that you've got all the good teams in the bottom row to maximise the chances of getting 5 picks right. Nice thinking. IDK if I'll change though.

I used this strategy in 2019 pickems as well and if i can recall well i was safe very soon not like others who had to sweat on the last round matches.

Only issue with CPH 3-0 I have is that last round is a BO3 Against an actual good team, assuming there isn't another underdog who goes 2-0, BO3 should be harder for any underdog to finish off, even if they got a map. I don't see any of the underdogs going 3-0 though if you ask me, definitely some potential to go through in teams like GODSENT and Entropiq, but 3-0? If the good teams in this draw play how they should, then this should be pretty simple for the majority of people doing the pickems.

3-0 spot should be considered as a throw away pick imo. I barely see people who picks CPH as an advance team so that made me feel like i should put them there instead of the bottom line. Picking GODSENT or Entropiq as 3-0 is not so bad choice either if you follow this strategy.

Fair enough logic. I've gone for Spirit 3-0 and moved Heroic to the bottom row, and Entropiq I've moved out entirely.

I feel like that yes. Don't forget that VP will start against a weak Pain while CPH start against Astralis.

As i said i feel Tyloo and Pain are also good 0-3 picks. I chose Sharks because i feel like Tyloo has way much more experience and yes they are separated with their matches in Asia but they may come with some yolo asian tactic that will be unexpected. In the meantime Sharks are major virgins, so their hands may will shake in tough situations.

I can't believe we had the same picks and i had a really hard time choosing them. Definitely copying your picks for the legend stage as it is going to be a hard one. GJ
