Even though the sample size to collect enough data is small, Mezii still averages 72 DKFP per game. He isn’t the most skilled player on this slate but he has still provided immense value for GamerLegion this year. He had 37 kills and 37 deaths in GamerLegion’s previous game against Honoris. He led both teams in ADR (85.7) and KAST (75.4%).
Others to consider: Innocent ($12,000)
High-priced flex options
The ease with which Illuminar put away a solid team in Fate in the previous game will serve as a warning sign for GamerLegion. Innocent had the most influential contribution in that game, adding 36 kills with just 26 deaths in a wire-to-wire dominant win. He had an ADR of 96.6 and even registered four kills in a single round with the M4A4 in the second map.
It’s prudent to pick at least one player from all teams. From Lyngby Vikings, Twinx is the best target because of a combination of strong form and killing proficiency. He had 67 kills and 43 deaths in the previous game in three maps. Lyngby Vikings lost that game against Lilmix. Still, Twinx led both teams in kills, K-D (+24), ADR (94.2) and KAST (78.4%).
Pact is ranked No. 50 in the world right now. That’s a bit too high to consider Pact a quickly-developing team. However, the team has repeatedly shown a propensity to overcome the odds. In this game, though, the odds are in their favor, quite literally. Goofy will have a massive part to play if Pact is to win in this tricky game. Form is not a concern after he registered 58 kills and 53 deaths in a 2-1 loss in the team’s previous game.
Others to consider: Birdfromsky ($7,400).
Value flex options
A price of $7,600 for Zero is quite good. He has been one of the most important killing weapons for GamerLegion through the team’s slow and steady rise up the CS:GO rankings. He had 42 kills with 37 deaths against Honoris in the previous game. He should finish with a high kill rate per round, maybe over 0.70, but he might even have a high death rate. Still, there is value in this selection.
Stacking is not a bad idea from Pact. There are 51 ranking spots between Pact (ranked No. 52) and Lyngby Vikings (ranked No. 103). It isn’t going to be a shutout but Pact should get through in this best-of-one game. Sobol might be the beneficiary, in terms of adding the rounds not played bonus. He is also priced extremely affordably, at just $6,000.
Others to consider: Minise ($7,000).
