FACEIT Major quarter-finals preview - part 2

Professeur
September 21st, 2018 00:15

With the first day of the playoffs is behind us, we take a look at Friday's quarter-finals and each team's chances to take the victory.

BIG and Natus Vincere kicked-off the action at the SSE Wembley Arena, with the match being won quickly by the Ukrainian side. compLexity - MIBR followed, and it was a somewhat closer series than its predecessor, but Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and co. still took a convincing victory in the end.

On Friday, two favorites for the title will step on the stage. The first one, Liquid, has been flawless so far in London, and will take on a massive underdog in HellRaisers. The second favorite is Astralis, who will have to defeat a struggling, but still dangerous FaZe, for a place in the semi-finals.

Liquid  Rating   HellRaisers Rating
Canada NAF  1.41   Jordan ISSAA  1.32
Canada Twistzz  1.37   Turkey woxic 1.14
United States EliGE 1.31 vs. Ukraine bondik 1.06
United States nitr0 1.15   Ukraine ANGE1 0.90
Brazil TACO 0.94   Hungary DeadFox 0.86
Brazil zews (coach)   Ukraine Johnta (coach)
EGB odd: 3.30   EGB odd: 57.33

A strong team going into the event, a 6-0 map record in the two Swiss stages, all three star players on point—it seems like everything is aligning for Liquid to have a great Major. While Milan "Striker" Švejda explored Liquid's chances to lift the trophy and pointed out some worrying signs, the match against HellRaisers isn't the one Liquid should be worrying about.

While HellRaisers have had some good results, they are yet to beat any really good teams in London, and have looked out of their depth when facing the world's elite. The ISSAA-woxic duo has been exciting to watch, but only the Jordanian has been consistent to the level of all three of Liquid's key players. HellRaisers have also shown that they have issues closing out games as they tend to lose silly rounds, something like that won't fly against a team of Liquid's caliber, who capitalize on even minor mistakes.

Liquid are massive favorites going into their first playoff match in London

Map pool wise, HellRaisers don't have any obvious weaknesses that Liquid can exploit, but the North Americans are simply better overall and should be confident however the veto ends up going. Browsing the team-based FTU statistics, a similar pattern can be seen—Liquid are good across the board, while HellRaisers are struggling with openings, but balance it out with late-round multikills and winning 4v5s at a slightly above-average rate.

With Liquid being such a well-rounded team, it is hard to find an edge for HellRaisers in this match. For any chance of an upset, they will need not only both woxic and ISSAA in prime form, but the trio of bondik, ANGE1 and DeadFox to step up in their respective departments, as well as for Liquid to fall apart as a team. It is a long shot.

Astralis  Rating   FaZe Rating
Denmark device  1.39   Bosnia and Herzegovina NiKo  1.31
Denmark Magisk  1.30   Sweden olofmeister 1.30
Denmark dupreeh 1.23 vs. Slovakia GuardiaN 1.11
Denmark gla1ve 1.18   Norway rain 1.01
Denmark Xyp9x 1.06   Denmark karrigan 0.95
Denmark zonic (coach)   Sweden RobbaN (coach)
 EGB odd: 3.85 EGB odd: 11.40

The last quarter-final is in some ways similar to the previous one, as Astralis are a well rounded team with great performances in the first two stages of the tournament, while FaZe have struggled and evidently have issues, but also some dangerous traits. While the similarities of Liquid and Astralis have been widely explored, there is a big difference on the other side as FaZe is a much stronger squad than HellRaisers on paper, and, therefore, the chances of an upset are much higher as well.

Looking at the Danes, the only department in which they are lagging behind the top teams at this tournament, albeit only slightly, are multikill rounds (0.84), but that is balanced out with device and Magisk being excellent at getting entries, which leads to them having an entry kill in 64% of the rounds they have played. Overall, their game plan has been working well so far at the event; they have only lost two maps, both in overtime and both to respectable teams: Liquid and NiP. While there have been some cracks in Astralis' armor shown over the course of the event, the talk of their issues has been somewhat overblown—starting slowly and building up form for the playoffs is a characteristic of a championship-winning team, and that is exactly what Astralis are.

A solid side like Astralis should be able to outlast FaZe

On the other hand, FaZe started the tournament poorly, going 0-2 before swapping the in-game leader role to NiKo and grabbing a playoff spot. Considering that, FaZe are in a great place: they have already survived a bad start and secured Legends status; everything on top of that is just an added bonus. They are the underdogs going into the match against Astralis, have no pressure on them, and that is exactly when FaZe are the most dangerous.

There is also the fact that, with a new in-game leader calling the shots, FaZe will be more unpredictable, making it harder for Astralis to do their homework on any map except Mirage, which the European squad played three times on their way to the playoffs. And it is not like FaZe will play completely random CS; they still have tactics and the foundation of structure karrigan built, but with NiKo being the one to pick and choose what will be used and when—Gambit replacing Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko with Bektiyar "fitch" Bahytov is an example of how well this can work, at least for the short term. And with NiKo and olofmeister both in red-hot form and a potential big showing from GuardiaN, Astralis could have a lot to deal with on their hands.

It all comes down to Astralis sticking to their guns, either preparing for Mirage well, or, more likely, vetoing the map and taking FaZe outside of their comfort zone. With no massive dropoffs from their players or a massive step-up from rain, who has been quiet lately, gla1ve and co. should be able to control the fury of FaZe and take the victory over the course of the BO3.

A strong team going into the event, a 6-0 map record in the two Swiss stages, all three stars on point - it seems like everything is aligning for Liquid to have a great Major. While Milan "Striker" Švejda explored Liquid's [chances to lift the trophy](https://www.hltv.org/news/24832/can-liquid-go-all-the-way-in-london) and pointed out some worrying signs, the match against HellRaisers isn't the one Liquid should be worrying about.


While HellRaisers had some good results, they are yet to beat any really good teams, and have looked out of depth when facing the world's elite. The ISSAA-woxic duo was exciting to watch, both of HellRaisers' Major rookies have started making the name for themselves, but only the Jordanian was consistent to a level all three of Liquid's key players were. HellRaisers have also shown that they have issues closing out games, losing silly rounds - something like that won't fly against a team of Liquid's calibre, they will make you pay for it.


Map pool wise, HellRaisers don't have any obvious weaknesses which Liquid can exploit, but they are simply better across the board and should be confident however the veto ends up going. Browsing the team-based FTU statistics, a similar pattern can be seen - Liquid are [good across the board](https://www.hltv.org/stats/teams/ftu?event=35649), while HellRaisers are struggling with openings, but balance it out with late-round multikills and winning 4v5's on a slightly above-average rate.


With Liquid being such a well-rounded team, it is hard to find an edge for HellRaisers in this match. For any chance of an upset, they will need not only both woxic and ISSAA in prime form, but the trio of bondik, ANGE1 and DeadFox to step up in their respective departments, and also Liquid to fall apart as a team. It is a long-shot.

So funny how Gold nova 2 players call guys Like Zeus and Edward bot. Even though i Like Ur nickname i have to Tell u that u are mentally retarded my friend
2018-09-21 00:24
ty i appreciate that
2018-09-21 00:25
Edward and zeus are bots but they have their special roles and responsibilites that make up for that. And no, edward doing good once in a while doesnt change the fact that hes a bot. Flamie is alright
2018-09-21 00:36
dude. ever imagined how hard it is to be a pro player. just consider all the rounds where they die and u think "oh zeus is such a bot". it may look botlike but consider all the other opportunitys when they could have died just before the point where u think they just went bot mode. i assume its soooo hard to stay focused on this level and do the right thing always. either zeus or edward would destroy every1 else on this entire homepage in every category of the game. there has to be a reason players are still signed in this orgs. we cant fathom their value i guess. (dont mention VP and neo now, because u know there has to be some execptions from the rules ;) )

But he obviously has the value now, he is signed after all. And that's what the guy was talking about. With your "logic", to buy a new car is the equivalent of saying "The car I used for the last 10 years for all my traveling etc. is shit because it's not the best car in the world for the last few years." ...

And how do you know it? It's not so clear cut as it seems in score tab. There's a bunch of things you have to be able to do to be a usefull player in the team enviroment. And Edward's value for the team can be just the fact that he does his job, comunicate well and all the things other than fragging. I can clearly see a value in a guy who does everything that is needed for a team and you as a team don't need to teach him all the basics of T1 competition. That's why for a team guy like this can be much more valuable asset than a young, fragging gun with no experience who has to be teached everything which drains resources from the team as a whole.

ropz, sunny, electronic, s1mple, twistzz, valde, kjaerbye, smooya, rez, lekro, nathe, cerq, woxic, issa, sergej, and i cant add more a lot of players who are 10 years younger than him that are better in every aspect of the game. and every single players that i mentioned had made their team better. so this statement is pure bullshit ''That's why for a team guy like this can be much more valuable asset than a young, fragging gun with no experience who has to be teached everything which drains resources from the team as a whole.''

Better? Like Mouz after Styko's departure? No company hires employees just on basis of their skill. The ability to work in that particular mix of characters, work ethic, willingness to do the designated job, how the guy is able to co-exist with the rest of the team etc. etc. ... There are countless features of a player that come in to consideration when a team is recruiting. Most of them are not vissible to an outsider. But keep repeating that some random guy who is able to perform in completely different enviroment gonna be apriori the better fit for a collective of people you have absolutely no clue about.

but styko isnt a fragger thats why having a young better aimer doesnt always equal a better roster such as snax replacing styko even though skillwise it's an upgrade the team is performing much more poorly

Zeus is not a very good aimer, but hes a damn good IGL. Edward really is a bot, youre right there. Btw just because someone might or might not be gold nova doesnt mean he cant tell whether someone is performing poorly or not. What many people to get is that if someone calls a pro "bot", he obviously means that hes a bad player COMPARED to other pros out there, not to normal people. Obviously hes still better than most of us randoms.

FaZe with Croman is better, so... Astralis and Liquid going pass, and TL will win this major.
2018-09-21 02:14
Faze isn’t better with Cromen lul. Its Karrigan who sucks ass cause look who is carrying Faze, thats right Niko and Olof. They are the only 2 that makes Faze having a chance vs Astralis

Karrigan has been off since olof came back in terms of calling. Their mid round is really weird atm. Also rain has really been dropping off lately which puts more pressure on the mid round so that isnt helping.
2018-09-21 11:03
willing to bet either olof or rain becomes a .90 player against astralis
2018-09-21 16:25
I don't see Olof going 0.90 if they play the same it will be Rain unless they change some stuff,
2018-09-21 17:37
Croman are not making them better. Karrigan and rain should step up. Since allu, kio days. Rain were never consistent enough. You can check their stats. Even niko and guardian on godlike mode, to win a title they always need rain to step up. It happen when croman with them, rain is on fire. I bet if croman were in this tournament with rain perform like this. They cant make it to legends.

astralis goes to semi, liquid goes to semi, astralis wins vs liquid, navi wins vs mibr, astralis wins the major, unless they choke on a fat dick which is a possibility.

Navi now get ez way to final imo
2018-09-21 03:46
Likely Astralis beats Faze and Liquid beats Hellraisers. Then, likely NaVi beats MiBR, and Astralis beats Liquid (unfortunately). NaVi vs Astralis in final.... edge to Astralis.
2018-09-21 04:30
liquid gonna be in final
