Elige is somewhere near his prime. When a player reaches this territory in CS:GO, it’s imperative to seize upon it because Counter Strike can be fickle. Against MIBR in the previous game, Elige had 42 kills and 31 deaths along with a K-D of +11. He also had the highest ADR (83.7) and KAST (71.7%) among both teams in that game. He even had a quad with the M4A4 and a 1v2 clutch win.
Others to consider: SyrsoN ($12,900)
High-priced flex options
SyrsoN has just turned his offensive switch on. And he seems to relish Faze as well. He has been simply stunning in the past few weeks. It’s not easy to upend form in this sport and it’s even harder to do it in the manner he has displayed. Against Faze in the previous game, he had 42 kills and 27 deaths with a game-high K-D of +15.
For 100 Thieves, consistency has always been important because the team doesn’t participate in as many tournaments as some of the other teams in and around the top 10 in the world. For that reason, Jks has been 100 Thieves’ most prolific player. He has strong defensive metrics and is a potent offensive player with any weapon. Against Chaos in his previous game, he had 39 kills and 29 deaths.
Considering BIG’s form, it might not be a bad move to stack from that squad, especially facing a struggling OG team. TabseN’s price has dropped significantly since about a month ago. Form can be temporary, but skill isn’t. TabseN certainly has the quality and class to put in another solid K-D performance just like he did against Faze.
Others to consider: oSee ($8,200).
Value flex options
Floppy and oSee ($8,200) worked beautifully in tandem to put away Gen.G in straight maps in their previous game. Floppy led both teams in kills with 51 and he also led both teams in K-D (+18) and ADR (94.4). Compared to oSee, it isn’t easy to convincingly predict the better producer in this game. Hence, you could use the price differential of $600 to build a more balanced roster.
Plopski wasn’t required to do much against x6tence in their previous encounter. Still, he finished with 29 kills and 20 deaths. Plopski has also found some of his lost killing fluency, which bodes well for Ninjas in Pyjamas. He averages 53 DKFP per game, highest for NiP.
Others to consider: Nawwk ($7,600), Cerq ($7,200).
