Free Diamond: Correct Pick Ems
 | 
Denmark quasivacuum 
hltv.org/forums/threads/2619572/correct-.. 8/9 in the first round, only Astralis 3-0 failed (I had IHC 0-3 at first but switched to Renegades 0-3, ultimately didnt matter coz u dont need 3-0s and 0-3s to hit to get diamond) imgur.com/a/i9vk9oO I will only talk a bit about a few of the picks/teams as most of it is pretty straightforward: Imperial 0-3: This team looks bad, and its because of no peacemaker. With peacemaker I would take them to advance through this stage. But no peacemaker no win! Peacemaker is one of the best coaches in the world. Furia 3-0: Im taking a team that im not feeling great about advancing here. This is because, it cannot be justified to put any other team here. Absolutely not. The two biggest favorites to advance to the next stage are Navi and FaZe. Navi are playing G2 and FaZe are playing Ence in round 1. These teams arent even massive favorites to win those games alone, and then they have to win two more games on top of those. No thanks. And then I just like the juxtaposition of 1 BR team to 0-3 and 1 to 3-0, but w/e. Furia will go on to do great things, but I think their run will be at the next major or the major after that. G2: Since my picks are pretty cut & dry im gonna put this team not to make it through to the next stage. Navi first game, could lose here, down 0-1, and they look very shaky and inconsistent. Im gonna fade G2 all the way from this point on, if they advance to the next stage im gonna take them to go out in their first game. BNE: Another contender for 0-3 but I just think they will find a W, theyre confident and hot and some of the players are hitting really crazy shots like sinnopsyy, but I think they go 1-3. 0-3 isnt a bad pick tho. Other teams in the mix for 0-3 is Spirit and Liquid, but at this stage teams can run into tough matchups so there are plenty more teams that can go 0-3 if they get the wrong matchups. Outsiders: I said it before and I will say it again: They were 0.4s away from not making it to the major. They couldve been eliminated from challengers stage. But magic can happen, they were given a gift. Only thing I dont like about this team is the fact that Yekindar seems to be a bit burnt atm with the uncertainty of the future and hes also not playing as well individually (and the team doesnt look as good as it could). I could see some magic but I also wouldnt be surprised if they went out, but they do have a good team on paper and a team thats been together for long. CPH Flames: Entropiq and CPH Flames were the two underdog stories of last year that looked pretty good. Entropiq didnt even qualify and now were seeing CPH Flames at the legends stage. CPH Flames are obviously great on LAN, but some of their games online they just look so bad, getting smoked by EC Kiev on a map for example. And heres the difference: CPH Flames looked good coming into the major last year, this major I dont think they look good coming into it and teams know not to underestimate and they actually have some CPH Flames demos they can watch so they dont get caught off guard like last time. Not taking them to advance, but they are a fun team. Theyre also the type of team that can upset great teams and then lose to mediocre trash, imo. TL;DR: imgur.com/a/i9vk9oO

How did you get 10 days ban lol ? I wouldn't put Outsiders over G2, also BIG could be a really good 3-0 team, dont really see them at the playoffs either.

Dont know. I just play a lot of faceit and cop a lot of reports (im not even toxic). It goes down to like 6-7 days and then it goes back up to 14 days. Ive been MM banned without getting out of it since they changed it so reports in faceit games can give u a MM ban. Until they made that change getting reports in faceit games (private games) had no effect on ur MM status.

yeah yeah, no need to try to hide your toxicity just own up to it
2022-05-14 17:25
since when have they done that? I thought 7 day cooldown is max for getting kicked, teamkilling etc. but you can get like 20-35 days for griefing. I have never heard of 14 day bans
2022-05-14 17:32

I think its somewhat recent, maybe like 6-8 months ago? I dont remember exactly Ive never heard of 20-35 days for griefing? That must be manually applied then. But before u could ONLY get MM cooldown for playing MM. But I dont play MM at all and I get matchmaking cooldowns, thats from reports in faceit games. Thats what they changed.

yeah the 30 day bans have existed forever, it's what you get from Overwatch for griefing. You get a majorly disruptive for cheating and minorly disruptive for griefing. ( youtube.com/watch?v=kIUMRl9jW-4 this is a OW ban for griefing, you can see it's red instead of yellow like a normal cooldown) Some years ago they added that if you get 2 OW bans for griefing it's a perma ban.

2022-05-14 17:59
honestly... 10 day cooldown? ahaha
2022-05-14 05:56

My cooldown goes up to like 13-14 days and then it goes down to like 7-9 days remaining and then it goes back up to 13-14 again. Thats how it goes lol
2022-05-14 17:46
I also have a gut feeling that G2 are not making it, they are struggling to close maps and i think that they will get punished for that in this stage by better teams

Liquid is currently the same shit as coL, both garbage. BNE I don't need to say anything, they're not solid, they're 50/50 with teams like forze but they will probably surprise in the next few years Imperial is clearly far superior to both, at least currently.

Yes bro, Imperial is a better team, on paper. No doubt. But everything doesnt go according to paper u know. I think BNE are confident + hitting stupid shots so I just think theyll take a game. But yes, it could just as well be some other teams that go 0-3. I just like Imperial 0-3 here even if they, on paper, arent the weakest team.

Deep inside I think the same, but I prefer to follow the logical path, I did it in the last pick'em and got the diamond
2022-05-14 15:59
imperial has really tough match ups, that's why I put them 0 - 3.

Seems very normal and I agree with your pickems. Spirit at 3-0 for sure could be the stuff of dreams but doesn't really matter does it?

Yeah I have furia 3-0 and its already gone, but I didnt want Furia to advance had I not taken them at this spot. Had I not taken furia here I would probably have taken G2 instead, but G2 also lost (and like I said, I dont think G2 will go through)

but it seems to me it is a better strategy to put a random team at 3-0 and 0-3 and put the teams most likelly to pass in the bottom. nice pikem imo
2022-05-14 18:50
1 reply
Yes absolutely. Its so stupid because u trap yourself this way. If u put a team to 3-0 and they go 3-1 or 3-2 then youre losing your 3-0 pick and youre losing a "to advance pick" Its never a good strategy.
