But that means faze have played with better opponents in 2-0 and 2-1 bracket while north did not
2019-04-02 21:18
FaZe had Pain and ViCi you can't call them better opponents when you have FaZe on the other side.
2019-04-02 21:49
ViCi beat Na'Vi though which is more than you can say about any of the teams North beat
2019-04-02 22:02
Na'vi is not playing at their normal level right now, didn't see s1mple that bad in a long time. either way Vici is a small team able to upset bc no one knows them and they barley play something bigger
2019-04-02 22:21
"Didn't see simple that bad in a long time"? He had a 1.34 rating across the series. He was the only player with over 60 kills in a 3 map series (that he lost). He was the only player on NaVi to get double digit kills in map 1. That was not a bad performance from simple and I don't think it's fair to blame that loss on him. It comes down to NaVi never do good at the beginning of tournaments.

Spirit arent no namers. They are a well recognized and appreciated team in the cis. They are a solid tire 3 team imo
2019-04-02 21:00
I’d say they are tier four, only because they don’t have the tourney results to back the skill. Still better than MIBR OMEGALUL

2019-04-02 20:45
Previous 1-2 tournaments maybe but this tournament NRG has been pretty lackluster.
2019-04-02 20:47
You seriously put north over faze? Curious as to your reasoning
2019-04-02 21:24
Well it's still pretty much as a toss-up and map vito obviously plays a big role but having said that: 1. I have North as the team that has stepped up their game the most coming into this tournament compared to previous, watching their games, it's obvious they have put some good practice and preparation coming into it. From a previous Top 10~12th to around Top-6 or so based on their current form. 2. FaZe again I see as slightly negative form trend coming to this tournament to previous ones, I have had them as a stable around Top-5 team, but have them around Top-7 (maybe 8th) right now purely based on worse player performance seen here, especially Guardian has shown worst form and will make a big impact in the North match if they can't depend on their main AWPer as much (I do expect NiKo to AWP quite a lot as a result too). But also AdreN and Olof hasn't impressed that much either, only NiKo has shown great solo performances. 3. FaZe has already played quite a few matches with current lineup as they have participated in a lot of tournaments recently and I think FaZe isn't able to predict North as well coming into this match, North have had more time on their hands to refocus coming into this tournament.

Only people who underestimate them are people who haven't watched the games because "I dont watch tier 3 teams". If NiP dont come prepared to play well there is a definite chance Spirit go through. I'd put it at about 65% NiP 35% Spirit
2019-04-02 21:26
