I think everyone was a bit baffled after Rare Atom - Team Liquid yesterday. The Asian team came out and just ran over Yekindar & co so it will be very interesting to see them go up against a team like ENCE Today, can they do it once again?
ENCE had some flaws in their own game against ATK but in the end they won by just being the better team and I am pretty sure they did not expect to go up against Rare Atom in this match.
We do expect the following veto:
RA veto Ancient
Ence veto Overpass
RA pick Inferno
Ence pick Vertigo
RA veto Anubis
Ence veto Mirage
Decider - Nuke
We saw ENCE ban Inferno yesterday and if they do it today Rare Atom will pick Overpass and right now we do see a similar outcome for these maps. Rare Atom can play both these two on a high level (which we saw yesterday) and ENCE is a team that never really had a great track record on either map.
Looking at Vertigo we could see ENCE make some crucial mistakes that lost them the game against ATK but that should be an easy fix and against a team like Rare Atom they should be just a couple of levels ahead.
Two good maps for both teams and Nuke as a decider should go in the favor of ENCE but Rare Atom made the impossible against Liquid yesterday and it would be such a fairytale story to see them win against ENCE. A close map 1, Easy ENCE win map 2 and a bloodbath on map 3 if we go there is what we can expect.
Our betting prediction for this game will be as following:
