During the last weekend Gankstars proved they are still the best team in the “AMERICAS” region.
But we’ll talk about that in another article.
Now it’s time to predict what team will conquer “EURASIA”. And that’s one tough cookie!
Nevertheless, we got almost all the semifinals right, so our confidence is back!
Let’s see if we can keep our inner Nostradamus alive and foretell the future once more.
CSPG Immortals vs Team Elevate
CSPG Immortals had a tougher time in the semifinals than most of us thought.
They started strong by winning Bureau in convincing fashion (13-5). However, Kings Demise managed to grab Grounded (9-13), forcing the series to the third map.
On Grounded, CSPG Immortals didn't look great on any of the sides, especially compared to their match with Learn From Past.
On the Counter-Terrorist side, they only won 6 rounds, which is rather low considering what teams usually achieve on CT side here.
Their Terrorist side was lacking as well, as they only got 3 rounds in total.
In the end, they won the series on Legacy. Their CSPG's Counter-Terrorist side was very impressive (9:2).
It looks like CSPG Immortals are the best Asian team at the moment.
„Ted“ was rather quiet this time, but „Buxnz“ and „M4tt“ stepped up and had an awesome series, getting frags all over the place.
„Punn“ didn't play, but that is not really surprising since the team is looking better than ever with the current lineup.
It's good to know that everyone on the team can step up when needed and that the team is not dependent on a single player.
In the European Team Elevate made quick work of team Dynasty, which didn't put up much of a fight.
This was a bit surprising, as Dynasty eliminated previous season winners (Nova eSports) in the quarterfinals.
Both matches ended rather quickly, with Team Elevate winning both Plaza (13-4) and Canals (13-5).
The man of the match was definitely „DyN“ , as he managed to get 43 on only two quick maps.
„Don-Hys“ replaced “PROLORD” against Dynasty and the team did seem to function way better that way.
The true test for Team Elevate will come in the finals.
We will see if the teams they have played until now just didn’t bring it or if Elevate is simply that good.
The fact that the match is going to be played on both servers (European and Asian) will most likely affect both teams.
However, we still think the better team will win.
After all, the match will be played in the best of five format.
Both teams have a good chance to win it all.
Team Elevate is still the favorite here and we know how deadly they are in the playoffs from previous seasons.
However, CSPG Immortals have beaten the finest Asian teams on their road to the Grand Finals and cannot be taken lightly.
They improved a lot after the changes they have made.
The question is – Will that be enough to take down a giant such as Team Elevate?
PREDICTION: 3-2/3-1 Team Elevate
