Flash Gaming

Flash Gaming Roster:
  • Summer
  • Attacker
  • Loveyy
  • zhoking
  • Freeman
  • z8z ( Coach)

Flash Gaming's roster has some very well known Chinese players. When the team was formed it was touted to be the best team in the region. And why Not? It had some of the biggest names in the Asian scene at the time. But the final result was a disaster. The team failed to live up to its expectations and were soon not as strong as one would have hoped for.

Flash Gaming has also been surrounded by rumors of a potential change in the roster. As such they don't look strong enough to compete with a former World Number 1 team, MiBr. Regardless, Flash Gaming does have the individual skill required to play at this level.

MiBr - Made in Brazil.

MiBr Roster:
  • Fallen
  • Fer
  • Coldzera
  • Stewie2k
  • Tarik
  • Ynk ( Coach )

The brazilian squad ( well, not so much Brazilian now) has made a name for itself after winning several majors. Their dominance is unparalleled in CS:GO history as they rose from being a no-name team to becoming the world's best team on a consistent basis. Having several players capable of holding the world's best player title, this roster has had a lot of skill at its hands. But the internal problems and lack of decent tactics on the roster meant that they have to initiate changes. They brought in two members from Cloud9 in the form of Tarik and Stewie2k. With these additions, every player on this team has won a Major, a feat that not many other teams can boast of.

MiBr also added a coach to their roster, after almost two years of playing without a coach. This decision was necessitated after several weeks and months of poor performances. While the players would often show up on an individual skill level, the team seemed to falter more and more. Ynk's addition to the roster provides an outside perspective, something that was not obvious to the team before their string of failures. But Ynk will not be a coach who can motivate the players as well as other coaches. His role on the team would be to provide them with a clear and concise analysis of their losses.

MiBr has all the necessary talent on it's roster to become the Number one team in the world. But as we have seen multiple times in the past, having decent talent is not a sure shot way of ensuring victory. After all the current Faze roster is also made after several attempts at making an international star-studded roster.

Fallen's change in roles and his adaptability to the team's requirements are what makes him one of the best players in the world. He can adapt his role, positioning as well as movement depending on the team's requirements.

MiBr probably has the best chance to potentially make it as the winner of this tournament. However, their current form is definitely not something that would help them tide over to achieve victory at Zotac Cup Masters 2018.

Prediction :

This should be a fairly straightforward matchup between the two teams. Flash Gaming in its prime could have potentially made an impact. Their current form, however, does not promise much. We recommend a large bet on MiBr for this match.
