The FaceIT Major is currently underway with 16 of the top teams in attendance at the New legends stage. Eight of these teams are from the previous major, having secured their Legends status at that Major. The remaining eight fought their way through the New Challengers stage and ensured their place in the top 16. But in order to be truly immortalised in Counter-Strike, the teams need to ensure a place in the New Champions stage. They need to have a good performance in this Major in order to secure the Legends status for themselves.

The FaceIT Major Legends Stage will be held at the Twickenham stadium, the same venue as The New Challengers stage. This stage uses the Swiss format with each team having to win 3 matches in order to proceed to the next stage. At the same time, each team with 3 losses is out of the tournament.

We hope FaceIT has fixed the various PC issues that have plagued the CS:GO teams during the Challengers stage. Valve recently released a hotfix for the ‘footsteps audio’ issue where players would not be able to hear footsteps close to them.

Complexity

Complexity Roster:

  • Dephh
  • Android
  • Yay
  • Stanislaw
  • Shahzam

Complexity is one of the biggest names in Counterstrike. However, most of their successes have been only in the earlier version of the game. In Global Offensive, Complexity has not been a strong team. But in this major, they have surprised everyone with some really strong performances.

The biggest advantage that Complexity has going for them is their mystery. They have played a surprisingly large amount of Inferno and a couple of maps here and there. This basically means that teams do not know the full extent of their map pool. If Complexity can get a good veto they have a realistic chance with this matchup.

Dephh has been a revelation at this tournament. The player, who received multiple offers from various teams has put up great performances so far at the Major. Ofcourse it is not an individual talent, but the team enables him to play as he does. His efficiency with the rifle and his superior positioning often get him into an advantageous situation. However, we have only seen him much on Inferno and we do not know how he will perform on other maps per se.

Shahzam is the primary AWPer on the team. The former Cloud9 member has seen a return to form, although not at his peak levels. His ability to take a single aggressive peak and win the duel is what makes him so strong. He puts himself at minimal risk while checking up on a place and he still manages to often win the duel. Getting an early advantage for the team, Shahzam has been crucial to Complexity’s CT Side. Right now, we can only hope that he maintains the current form and continues to play as well.

Another potential candidate for the AWP role on the team is Stanislaw. We have seen Stanislaw pick up the AWP on his previous rosters to relative success. Stanislaw also helps the team in their tactics, which we have seen to be very successful so far at the Major. Complexity has a decent understanding of their opponents and can easily read them for their playstyle. This is especially important for top-tier teams who rely on great strategies in order to create an advantage for themselves. The fact that Complexity could actually manage to easily defeat BIG Gaming proves this point. Stanislaw has had ample time to prepare for Mibr and this should be a slight advantage for the team. But is it enough? That’s something that only time can tell.

Made in Brazil

Made in Brazil roster:

  • Tarik
  • Stewie2k
  • Fallen
  • Fer
  • Coldzera

The Made in Brazil roster won a very convincing match against Ninjas in Pyjamas. But they have not looked extremely strong as their lineup suggests. For the most part of the past three months, MiBr has looked weak and without deep strategies against top teams. Even now, they did lose a 0-16 on Dust 2 to astralis. Ofcourse Astralis being the best team and having the level of preparation that they do was a crucial part in the final result.

MiBr’s roster consists of five Major champions. They include three Brazilian players in Fallen, Fer and Coldzera. Each of these players is extremely well known for their very aggressive and yet accurate plays. Fallen has seen a resurgence of sorts with his aggressive style of AWPing. He would push through smokes in unimaginable situations get a kill and fall back safely. Of course with the playoffs and the much better teams, it won’t work all the time. Their opponents will have studied Fallen’s playstyle and will expect such plays from him. If he dares to repeat such aggressive plays, then he will definitely have a problem in the upcoming matches.

However, despite his risky plays, Fallen is getting his job done. It is the other two Brazilian players, Coldzera and Fer who are definitely not playing at the same level as before. Coldzera who also has a signage in CS:GO according to his name is no longer playing at the same level as before. His performance on this team needs to be much better if Coldzera will need to contest against the best teams.

Fer too has been rather lacklustre so far in the tournament. His lack of performance could hurt the MiBr roster which is seeing improving performances from the two NA players in Stewie2k and Tarik. Those two players are improving and the latest Video on Stewie2k will definitely help improve the players’ morale. In a way, the 16-0 loss to Astralis can actually turn into a boon for the team as they will be more motivated to not let such a situation arise again.

Prediction:

Complexity has definitely surprised everyone with their performance at this Major. The boot camp prior to the Major has paid off. They were at best a middle-tier team in the NA Region. They weren’t even the strongest team in the North American region, however, they look extremely strong at this Major so far. But they have to face off against a resurgent Made in Brazil roster. This team has all the necessary components to win the Major. They have the best quality players and an amazing coach.

YNK’s addition to the team definitely makes them a much more tactical team than before. They have always had the individual skill set necessary to enable a great performance. But their strategies were getting old and not as effective as before. For this game, we recommend a bet on Made in Brazil roster. They have the experience and the firepower necessary to overcome Complexity.
