It has been a splendid season of the NA ESL Pro League. They league is currently dominated by two teams which are Team Liquid and NRG Esports. Both sides have only dropped one game so far with 10 wins each as we pass the halfway mark. Let’s have a look at some of the matches coming your way on Thursday.
The Brazilian side has played 10 games against 5 teams in the ESL PRO League Season 7: NA. In these meetings the side has failed to win a single series. In all of these games they’ve either ended at 1-1 or lost 2-0. In the past week, the side lost both games against Team Liquid and NRG Esports, while settling for draws against Cloud 9, NRG, and Rogue. So far in the standings, they are second from the bottom with only three wins and seven losses. They really need Epitacio “Taco” Pessoa to shine, as he the worst performer of the side so far. He has only 95 kills to 148 deaths while giving only 30 assists. The side needs to find its chemistry and they need wins soon in order to make a mark in the 7th edition of the Pro League.
The American side of Optic Gaming is currently flying high in the 7th edition of the NA Pro League. They currently are sitting at fourth place in the league and haven’t lost a series so far. However, they have tied the series against Cloud9, Rogue, Ghost Gaming, and Renegades. Nonetheless, the side managed to achieve a four-game winning streak. They beat compLexity and Splyce 2-0 and currently hold a 67%-win rate. They have lost only four and won eight, with a decent K/D of 1.04. The standout player for the side is none other than Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke. He hosts a respectable K/D ratio of 1.20 with 260 kills to 216 deaths. The team will be confident against the struggling Brazilians.
SK Gaming 0 – 2 Optic Gaming
SK Gaming 1.35 – 2.95 Optic Gaming
It has not been a season to remember for Cloud 9 in the ESL Pro League. So far, the side has failed to win even a single series in the season. Up till now, the side has played a total sum of 12 games against six teams. In these 12 games, they have won 5 and lost 7. Moreover, they lost 2-0 to the league leaders, Team Liquid and only managed a 1-1 score against SK Gaming, OpTic Gaming, NRG Esports, Ghost Gaming, and compLexity Gaming. Timothy “autimatic” Ta has been the solid performer of the side with his 235 kills to 211 deaths. He could be the man against Team Dignitas, where Cloud 9 will be looking to get their first 2-0 victory.
Team Dignitas is the punching bag of the 7th edition of the ESL Pro League. They have played eight games so far in the league and have eight loses to show for it. The American side looks destined for relegation. They lost to compLexity Gaming, Luminosity Gaming, Team Liquid, and NRG Esports. Some might say that the team might escape relegation since they have played fewer games. However, to do so they have to start winning games, which seems highly unlikely in the match against C9. Matthew ”mCe” Elmore has 88 kills with 157 deaths to his name. He really needs to improve his performance if his side should escape the relegation battle.
Cloud 9 2 – 0 Team Dignitas
Cloud 9 1.18 – 4.25 Team Dignitas
