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.

Format

The New Legends Stage: September 12th – 16th, 2018

  • 16 Team Swiss System Format
  • Round 1 to 4 matches are Bo1
  • Round 5 matches are Bo3
  • The Buchholz system is used to seed matches from Rounds 3 to 5
  • Top 8 Teams proceed to The New Champions Stage
  • Bottom 8 Teams are eliminated

MibR

Made in Brazil roster:

  • Fallen
  • Fer
  • Coldzera
  • Tarik
  • Stewie2k

The Made in Brazil team is one of the best teams on paper. Made up of the members of two Major winning teams in Cloud9 and SK gaming, Mibr’s results are shocking. They have not had any success with this team. Even the matches that they win were supposed to be walkovers for the potential for this team.

MiBr’s Fallen is the Joker on the team. He has changed his roles and the team’s playstyle multiple times in his search for success. Adapting to the meta and the team’s potential make him such a great leader. He is like an elder brother to most of the players on this roster. However, that does not mean that the team is without its disagreements. Coldzera for one has been rumoured to have disagreed with Fallen on several occasions. Most of these disagreements are with regards to their tactics and gameplay.

Can Coldzera get back into form with his new team?

In order to fulfil the gap in their tactics, compared to other teams, MIBR added YNK in August 2018. YNK is a former Counter Strike Global Offensive player, who moved on to the analyst position on the desk. His transition into the analyst position was fairly successful from the weatherman segment early his career to his staple analysis on the desk. He provides deep insight into a team’s performance and is especially useful when dissecting certain plays and why they work. As an outsider, he has a neutral perspective on why certain teams work and some don’t. MiBr’s failures are one such example of a team that surprised everyone with their below par performance. Bringing in YNK is a great way to establish an advantage when it comes to their strategy and tactics.

Tarik has seen an upswing in his performance of late

But he has had very less time with the current roster. Only 1 month into his job, he is expected to deliver results for the team. MiBr needs to be able to advance at least to the Champions stage in order to make themselves ‘successful’. The team did look strong at their last outing, the Dreamhack masters Stockholm, but is it enough to make them an elite level team? Not yet.

YNK will be instrumental in order to help MIbr form good strategies for the major

Tarik has shown an upswing in his personal performance as a player. He has had times of lows and highs, but the current graph definitely shows him moving towards a high. This bodes good news for the team as they look towards success. MiBr will have to face off against the Asian team, Tyloo in their first match of the New Legends stage.

Tyloo

Tyloo Roster:

  • Mo
  • DD
  • Somebody
  • BnTeT
  • Xccurate

Tyloo is easily the best team from Asia in Counter-Strike Global Offensive. Most of their success in the Asian local championships, however, came due to their superior aim and firepower. The same cannot be used against the top teams in the world. Their decision to add BnTeT and xccurate represents an acknowledgement of their problems when it comes to their tactical approach to the game.

The current Tyloo roster looks more balanced and much better than the previous iteration. This is mainly due to their focus on having a better team play and better tactics for the team. Xccurate presents a very aggressive and often borderline stubborn approach to the game. However, this is exactly what throws off the enemy and they often run into a wall on the Tyloo defence. The Tyloo team has played Inferno quite a lot during the FaceIT London Major and we have seen how averse they are to last-minute rotations. Rather than make two bomb sites weak via rotations in the last few seconds, Tyloo believe in reinforcing one bomb site. Then depending on how good or bad the opponent’s entry on the other bomb site is, they can take a decision to either go for the retake or save their weapons.

BnTet along with Xccurate provide the tactical advantage that the Chinese teams need in CSGO

Somebody has to receive a special mention, because of his aggressive playstyle. At the top level in Counter-Strike Globa Offensive, you do not often expect players to push through smoke in order to gain the peek advantage. But that is exactly what Somebody does and to a very high effectiveness. The players’ ability to hit these shots despite taking a very big risk is what makes him a terror for the opponent. He is responsible for any playstyle changes in the enemy because they always have to watch out for his aggressive playstyle. However what makes his playstyle most effective is the fact that the rest of the team is in a very defensive position.

This ensures a good contrast between aggressive and defensive positions for Tyloo. It is almost impossible for their opponents to gain a huge advantage just by eliminating Somebody. Xccurate is their primary AWPer on the team. However, we have seen Somebody pick up the secondary AWP with regularity and be extremely effective on it.

The daredevil: Somebody keep pushing through smokes, making aggressive plays and they often work

For all the praise on Tyloo regarding their CT Sides, their T sides on Inferno seemed woefully underprepared. The team did not have any strategy on how to crack the opponents CT defence and that can be a big problem on other maps. It is obvious that Tyloo has had good preparation on Inferno. However, if they cannot play a good Terrorist side on a map that they favour, it calls into question their performance on other maps. But for now, Tyloo only have to play Best of Ones and that gives them control over the map pool to a large extent.

Tyloo does look strong so far in the tournament and there is a decent chance that they can make it to the Champions stage. However, they need to win 3 matches in order do so and the first match will be against MiBR.

Prediction

This match will be extremely close as both the teams are on a fairly equal pedestal. MiBr is the better team on paper, but they are playing far below their potential right now. The Made in Brazil roster, however, has seen significant improvements with Ynk coaching them into a world-class roster. They need Tarik and stewie2k to step up with their individual performances if they are to have a chance at making it into the New Champions stage.Currently Mibr is not that far ahead of Tyloo and that is indeed a worrisome sign for Made in Brazil fans.

Tyloo has had amazing individual and team plays, but they are no longer the new kid on the block. The 2-day break between the Challenger stage and the Champions stage is sure to have provided teams with adequate time to review their opponents. By now, MiBr has a fair understanding of Tyloo’s playstyle and how they refuse to budge at the last second. This can be used by Mibr to their advantage. They could set up elaborate fakes which would work simply because they trust in Tyloo’s judgement and have studied their playstyle.

For now, we recommend a very low bet on MiBr. This match is very risky since we have seen MiBr be as dominant as their potential allows.

Tyloo


Tyloo Roster:

  • Mo
  • DD
  • Somebody
  • BnTeT
  • xAccurate

The Tyloo roster is one of the strongest Asian team in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. This team has the talent required to compete at the top level, but their current performance is not always up to the mark. They burst onto the scene a few years ago and were characterized by their extra-aggressive manoeuvres.

However, the lack of a set strategy and deep tactics meant that the team were easily able to counter them with grenades, flashes and smokes. The team has since changed rosters and made a genuine attempt to get themselves known as a more strategy – oriented roster. Tyloo lost to North in the BO1 opening match. The score was a 16-7, on Inferno a favourable map for North. Ofcourse with North eventually also winning their series against Astralis, it does put perspective on Tyloo’s loss.

However, Tyloo were easily able to defeat Grayhound Gaming. They limited Grayhound to single-digit scoreline which is essential to exert their dominance. The Tyloo Gaming performance definitely is commendable, but they needed to move out of the Groups at Dreamhack Stockholm in order to show progress. Unfortunately, with Astralis being their next opponents, it is going to be all the more difficult for them.

Tyloo relies heavily on having a great strategy, but their performance against Astralis will be a difficult case to deal with. The Chinese team requires to have a great veto in addition to an underperforming Astralis.

 

Astralis

Astralis Roster:

  • Device
  • Dupreeh
  • Xyp9x
  • Magisk
  • Glaive

Astralis remains the best team in the world. This is not just because of their roster, but also because of their results in the past few months. Post the player break, Astralis are playing their first tournament. So their surprise loss to North in a BO3 series should not be taken at its face value.

Astralis lost Kjaerbye in a surprise move to North a few months ago. The move that was mostly handled by the management definitely surprised the players themselves. However, the addition of Magisk brings about a whole new aspect to the team. Astralis has a plethora of in-game leaders and players who can take the role if needed. So when Kjaerbye left the team, it was Glaive who stepped up and managed the team. It actually turned out to be great, since Glaive is actually very good at what he does. The In-Game Leader is unlike others in the fact that he can actually frag almost equal to the others in the team.

Glaive can use his teammates to their maximum potential and there is no one elsewhere it is more visible than in the case of Magisk. Astralis have a very deep map pool, one which can rival the best teams in the world. Their weakest link was Cobblestone, which has since been removed from the active map pool. This makes them a very strong team and allows them flexibility in the veto phase.

Astralis has a very aggressive playstyle, especially on their CT side. They are constantly poking around to get more information, which can be used mid-round by Glaive. The In-Game Leader’s mid-game calls are one of the best in the game. He is constantly evaluating the situation and makes decisions on the go. The team is used to play around quick decisions and they move like a well-oiled machine.

Prediction:

The Astralis team is undoubtedly the stronger team amongst the two. Their performance has been improving tremendously but they are still quite a ways away from making a strong case for themselves. The Astralis team should be able to win this match with ease.

Tyloo does have to take on the tough task of proving themselves to their fans. Their inability to defeat North in BO1 will just make this tougher for them. The Tyloo roster needs to pull off innovative strategies in order to potentially win this matchup. They are a team which can definitely pull off new strategies to throw Astralis off-track. But it will take time for them and they are not prepared for this match right now.

We recommend a large bet on Astralis, especially since this is a Best of Three matchup.

North

North Roster:

  • Aizy
  • MSL
  • Valde
  • Kjaerbye
  • Niko ( loan )
  • Ave ( Coach)

Team North is a Danish roster comprised of some of the veteran Danish players. Most of the players on this roster have played for the best Danish team in some form or the other. Their experience of playing at the top level and dealing with problems is crucial to the development of this team.

North is a lineup that looks very strong on paper, and it should easily be able to be in the top 6. However, they do not always have the results to show for their lineup. Initially, it was due to a lack of synergy on the roster, and then poor form saw the team slip in rankings. They are still currently ranked #10th in the world, but their results have been drooping of late. They are unable to put up decent results as a team.

Kjaerbye’s addition to North was sudden and shocking. Image courtesy: SkySports

Their best map is Mirage, Inferno and Train. Their amazing CT side on Inferno is infamous for being watertight in many situations. The playstyle has a big focus on their coordination on the CT side. The watertight defence is mostly due to their conservative nade usage, which is why sudden pushes often throw their defence off-balance. But they are mostly prepared for the same with their guns out and usually with flash backups from the secondary player. North remains a team that is very strong on paper, but their transition into performances on the server is a matter of concern.

The North team is a team that has more significant experience in Group A. Their experience and talent, if utilised to its full potential can be the single most significant factor in their win.

Tyloo

Tyloo Roster:

  • Mo
  • DD
  • Somebody
  • BnTeT
  • xAccurate

Tyloo is one of the best Asian teams in Counter-Strike. For a region which has regularly produced some of the best teams in Dota 2 and other esport titles, it is surprising to see China lag behind in CS: GO as much as it is. When Tyloo first burst onto the scene, they were very aggressive in their approach. They often would run into a site uninitiated, and that would surprise many of their opponents.

Teams figured out the team since then. The roster has also undergone several changes since that time. The new roster has more of a focus on improving the reliability of their results with detailed gameplay and more intense practice regimens. They always are trying to improve their gameplay via tactics and strategy. The team does not have as much firepower as the former roster ( most of whom are on Flash Gaming right now), but their increased focus on strategy and gameplay makes them much more amenable to winning their matches. However, Tyloo lacks firepower, and that is the biggest problem for the team.

BnTeT is the leading fragger on Tyloo

The addition of BnTeT and xAccurate is supposed to solve this problem for the Tyloo roster. The Indonesian duo has been making a name for themselves with spectacular performances against top tier teams. But the low quality of their teams meant that they were almost never able to win their matches with ease and face off against top tier teams. With Tyloo it provides them with an opportunity to be on a top team and compete against the best. The language barrier problems that would have arisen with only BnTet on the team has been partially solved with the addition of xAccurate. For now, the team’s focus on team building and ensuring good results is what makes this team always an upset potential.

Prediction

North Gaming is undoubtedly the better team when it comes to their matchup against Tyloo. The Danish roster has many experienced players, and their collective talent is more than that of Tyloo. North does have the advantage of being a team which can have a very deep map pool. They prefer Mirage & Inferno, but they are still well versed on all maps. The performance of the team in recent months has not been the best, and that could play a part n their performance at this tournament. WThis matchup will almost definitely be the sole reason for a team qualifying into the playoffs. Since the other two teams in this group are Grayhound gaming and Astralis, we expect North and Tyloo to be competing for the second playoff spot in the tournament.

Tyloo has the advantage of being a surprise team. Their minimal playtime with European and western teams is what makes them a surprise for them. In previous editions the team has had a very raw approach to the game, relying on their aim to win. But once teams figured out their gameplay, they were very easy to counter as a roster. The present Tyloo team sees more grenade usage resulting in better performances.

We have to recommend a bet on North Gaming for this match. They have the experience and the better firepower on the team.

The Zotac Cup Masters is the first tournament to be held since the players’ break started. The tournament does not feature the top Counter-Strike teams, but it does not lack quality or competition. There are several tier two teams in this tournament that are striving to make an impact. Their performance in this tournament would go a long way in their form for the upcoming season. Many of these teams are not attending the FaceIT London Major. While some of them are Legends for the upcoming Major, they are not really in the best of form right now.

The Zotac Cup Masters is a LAN tournament with a prize pool of. The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center,Wan Chai will be hosting the tournament. It features 8 teams in attendance. Due to the limited time period for the tournament, it is scheduled only for three days, it has a single elimination format. This single elimination format could probably have been improved upon, however, the organisers have at least ensured that each match is a Best of Three series. The fact that every match is a BO3, with the finals being a BO5 is small comfort to the teams.

This tournament has a prize pool of $300,000 with the lion’s share of the prize pool going to the first place. The tournament winner will take home $200,000 as well as the bragging rights.

Format

  • Playoffs are Single Elimination
  • Quarterfinals & Semifinals: BO3
  • Finals: BO5

Tyloo vs Kinguin

Tyloo

Tyloo Roster:

  • Mo
  • DD
  • Somebody
  • BnTeT
  • Xaccurate

Tyloo is one of the better Chinese teams in Counter-Strike Global Offensive. The team made its way by some really aggressive and fast gameplay. They did manage to shock most of their opponents in the early phase of their ‘international matches’. The Tyloo team soon realised that their aggressive posture would not always give them the advantage. After their initial burst of results, the Tyloo roster seemed lacklustre mostly due to the fact that most of the teams figured them out. The performance of the team withered and they were unable to score upset wins over top teams such as SK Gaming ( at the time) regularly.

This led to Tyloo looking internally to solve their problems. The team lacked the necessary tactical approach in their game. They are extremely skilled, but they do fall flat when it comes to the top teams in the world. Considering the fact that they are the undisputedly best team from the Chinese region, they would always face some of the best teams in the world at International events.

The new Tyloo roster (  the current one) has a mixture of Chinese players and Indonesian players. The two set of players come from diverse languages, but that has not stopped them from forming a really strong team with a focus on the strategic aspect of the game. We can see how Tyloo manages to secure advantages for themselves partly due to their tactical acumen.

BnTeT is one of the most skilled players in the world and his performance on the server is usually the highlight of Tyloo’s match. The Tyloo roster, however, does not solely depend on BnTet in order to potentially win the match. BnTeT is played as a part of the team and even if he has an average performance, the team still looks very strong. Xaccurate is the latest addition to the team and this has resulted in him being able to trade off for BnTet. The two Indonesian players have great synergy as is expected due to the absence of a language barrier.

But what is important is the usage of smokes and flashes by the team. For a roster that was notorious for its dry push onto a site, the team has developed several set strategies over the past few months. Their execution is really good, but they also need to win the aim duels against some of the top teams in the world. This is where they often falter as they don’t have the surprise element on their roster anymore.

Kinguin

Kinguin Roster:

  • Taz
  • Mouz
  • Rallen
  • Reatz
  • Minise
  • LOORD ( Coach)

Kinguin is one of the better known Polish organisations in esports. The website has supported Polish teams for a very long time, often enabling them to compete against top European teams. The current roster’s performance is somewhat mixed, but with several veteran Polish personnel in the roster, they do not lack the necessary skills.

The team cruised through the European qualifiers for the Zotac Cup. They were able to defeat LeftOut 2-0 in the finals to secure their place at the tournament. However, that being said they definitely lack firepower when it comes to playing some of the better teams. This tournament does have some really strong teams such as Virtus Pro, MiBr etc. These teams might not be at their peak and are actually in a slump. However, there is no doubt about their individual skill. Most of their lack of form comes from the lack of synergy and confidence within the teams. Kinguin will have a tough time trying to become a contender for this tournament. Their first match is against Tyloo, the Chinese giant.

Kinguin has Taz, former Virtus Pro player who was shown the exit due to poor performances and results for several months. However, Taz is a great personality leader in any roster and his personality will give the necessary boost to Kinguin. The Kinguin team has a very small map pool and that is going to affect their chances in this match. They will have to contend with two types of Tyloo. Tyloo either plays very aggressively or they respect their opponents and try to play around with their tactics and strategies. So for Kinguin, this is going to be a tough task.

Prediction:

The two teams are very different when it comes to their form. Kinguin still needs time to start winning ( if they ever do). After all, they comprise of several players who were evicted from some of the ‘top’ teams in the world. I emphasize ‘top team’ because Virtus Pro could not solve most of their problems even with Taz’s exit. The player is an asset, regardless of his performance. His experience and his skill will help out Kinguin in the long run. But for now, Kinguin has a long way to go.

In contrast, Tyloo is a team that has been on the winning ways for quite some time. The team has been able to win several of the regional qualifiers, consistently making it to the big leagues. But this is where they hit the brakes. The team’s performance, however, has seen significant improvements in the past few months. They have added a very tactical aspect to their game, one which has resulted in a much stronger and composed team.

For this match, we will go with the tried and tested team that is Tyloo for now. They have had consistent results over the past months, and that is bound to help them in this match. Considering this is a BO3, the Tyloo map pool, which is significantly bigger than Kinguin’s will also become a crucial factor. We recommend a medium sized bet on Tyloo for this match.

Introduction

IEM Shanghai 2018 was postponed well into the player break due to certain logistical hurdles. This is one of the first stops in China for the Event organizer. They are looking to tap into the Asian market, especially with their recent appointment of new personnel heading the division. IEM Shanghai features a prize pool of $250,000 and will see eight teams compete at the tournament.

This tournament is aptly called as the race amongst Tier 2 teams, there are so many teams which are striving to break into the top scene. Teams like NRG, Grayhound, Tyloo and Virtus pro are all capable teams. We have seen them cause upsets in the past and create chaos amongst the rankings. But in this tournament, amongst equals, it is going to be a true test for several of these teams.

Virtus Pro

Virtus Pro Roster:

  • NEO
  • Byali
  • PashaBiceps
  • Michu
  • Morelz

The Virtus Pro team rose to prominence early in Counterstrike Global Offensive. Most of them made their names in CS 1.6. In recent months, however, Virtus Pro has been nowhere near their former glory. The Polish squad has made several changes to their roster including breaking up the original squad.

They brought on Morelz to the team as well as added Michu to their active roster. Now Michu is a player that has been a consistent performer in the Polish scene. He has been under the radar, but that is mostly because the Golden Five was by far the most talented players in the scene. Since there were no players able to live up to their skill level, the Virtus Pro roster of the former did not change. But they would occasionally bring in Michu as a stand-in. As a team, it is important for them to understand and gel well with each other. The time that Michu spent as a stand-in on the roster was obviously a trial period for the team and the player.

However, just today, Virtus Pro announced that they will be adding yet another player to the roster. This is despite the current roster still in contention to advance at IEM Shanghai. This Is obviously because the team does not feel comfortable with the current roster as it is. Snatchie from AGO Gaming is a young and upcoming player. While he has not had many victories to his name, his temperament on the roster is well known. But announcing Snatchie right now also means a death sentence for Morelz time on the roster. It means that Morelz will not be on the active roster.

Virtus Pro has been very aggressive in their gameplay. While it used to work in their earlier iteration, their aggressive gameplay has led to their downfall of late. They are unable to win singular battles and they lose cause of the lack of firepower. Virtus Pro lost to Hellraisers in the Group stage match 16-12. While they did manage to overcome the team in the elimination match, they do not look very strong. The latest news about Snatchie is definite to bring down the team morale.

Tyloo

Tyloo Roster:

  • Somebody
  • Mo
  • DD
  • BnTeT
  • xAccurate

Tyloo is the best Chinese CS GO team for quite some time. While the core roster has seen several changes over the years, Tyloo remained dominant in the scene. Tyloo won against Gambit Gaming in the Group stage of IEM Shanghai 2018. They were quite dominant in their performance.

The biggest improvement for the Tylo roster is the addition of BnTeT to their roster. BnTet is one of the most talented and skilled players from the region. He has maintained a consistent performance throughout the past few months. His ability to maintain a very high KDA irrespective of the opponents is what drives him to become one of the best players in the scene. But unfortunately he is not playing on a top level team and that does not utilize his skills to their maximum potential.

Regardless of these Tyloo is a strong roster. The former roster used a very aggressive stance and would win matches based off their skill alone. When they burst onto the scene, the top teams would constantly be surprised by their brazen and forward attacks. This would create a slight opportunity for Tyloo. They are a team which would win most of their matches. But once the top teams figured them out, the team has since adapted. They have a more strategic approach to their game. This has helped create them into a much stronger team while still maintaining the high level of skill on the roster.

Prediction:

The outcome of this match is not easy to predict. On one hand, we have Virtus Pro who looked good in their match against Hellraisers. However, the news about Snatchie replacing Morelz on the roster is definitely going to come as a shock for the player and the team alike. This will definitely act as a motivating factor for the team. Skill-wise, they are not doing too good, which sees losses with big margins for the Polish squad.

Tyloo, on the other hand, has been accomplishing most of their goals and achievements. The team has been winning most of their recent matches. While mostly they are playing against Australian teams such as Grayhound, Renegades and Tainted Minds, they are still winning them with comfortable margins. The team is looking very strong with a mixture of tactics and firepower.

We recommend a low bet on Tyloo for this match.
