KSCERATO stars as FURIA take down Movistar Riders in EPL

The Brazilians now sit on a 2-0 record in Group D.

FURIA defeated Movistar Riders in a two-map series, dominating Ancient (16-3) and closing out the series with a comeback from 7-13 on Nuke (16-13). Kaike "⁠KSCERATO⁠" Cerato had a fantastic series, putting up a 1.73 rating and 52 kills.

FURIA now sit at the top of Group D with a 2-0 record alongside Cloud9, with their next game against Liquid coming on Friday at 19:30 . Meanwhile, this is the second loss of the group stage for Movistar Riders, with the Spaniards facing Cloud9 in the next round of play.

KSCERATO was the star of the show

The series began on Ancient, with Movistar Riders starting on the less-favored Terrorist side. The Spaniards had a very rough start, losing the pistol round and were simply outclassed in the opening exchanges, with FURIA winning all 15 rounds of the half. Movistar Riders achieved just one opening kill in the first half alongside just three bomb plants, with the team coming closest to getting themselves on the board in the penultimate round, where they were denied by André "⁠drop⁠" Abreu's 1vs2 clutch.

A pistol round win meant Movistar Riders at least avoided the 16-0 and were able to get three rounds, as the map finished with a dominant 16-3 win for the Brazilians.

Nuke proved to be a much closer affair, with Movistar Riders in control of the opening few rounds, bar a lost 3vs5 situation on the lower site. FURIA came back into the game after being 2-6 down, with KSCERATO finding impact in several rounds to set the halftime score at 8-7 in favor of the Spaniards.

Movistar Riders won the second pistol and looked like they were about to run away with the game, racing to a 13-7 lead. FURIA stabilized soon after that, with KSCERATO once again the difference maker. The 23-year-old got an incredibly important quad-kill in a 3vs5 situation with the scoreline at 13-9, with the Brazilians never looking back and closing out the game with a 16-13 win.

While kserato has been amazing in recent matches. Yuurih somehow had a huge drop-off, certainly not performing up to his usual standard

That's the problem with furia nowadays. When one of the two is on fire, the other one is asleep. Luckily saffee has been also carrying his weight.

Kscerato-yuurih duo is freaking sick when they both pop off. I'm just hoping the duo will be back on form, especially with rio major coming by soon. Want to see them make it far at the playoff.

People should know how they work by this point. It's been years all you see is people complaining about them. On practice there is little difference between a top 5 and a top 15 team, particularly at the start of a season like this with barely any events to take recent results from. But alas, it seems this ranking only favours bettors that are aware of this fact vs. people that sees top 20 vs top 5 and really believes a team like Movistar is favored due to that.

And a team like C9 has played exactly 1 tournament since July. It's a mixture of more factors, like BLAST being franchised, but yeah, kinda summed it up saying we're not that deep into it yet.
2022-09-23 01:09
You're right about that, I never thought by that point, less attentive punters can be influenced by this rank.
2022-09-22 21:56
isn't EPL the problem:?? (top 30 teams play only one tournament for 5 weeks) edit: maybe not top 30, but at least top 15 are all focused on EPL

Eh, it might contribute yes. But that's mainly a problem in its own tbh, EPLs get quite tiring being so spread out. Then again they're normally a decent exhibit of most teams' forms, being all BO3.

One thing is for sure: everyone was counting Movistar out because sunPayus left, almost treating him as the only reason why Movistar was getting good results. Yes, sunPayus left, but this Martinez guy is playing very very good. If he finds consistency on this form he'll be amazing, definitely poached by other teams and will only make it clearer that the problem isn't sunPayus leaving, but the whole team instead
