Bruh Team vs brandonbrandonbrandonbrandonbr

Prediction: 2-1 many brandons
Outcome: 2-0 bruh

It seems I gave many brandons a bit too much credit for their roll over S.H.I.T. This time around they were outfragged and outmatched. Agb had an impressive performance with 40 kills by the end of the game, with Bear Hoovy and avian just under that. Overall, it was a showing from Bruh Team.

Notable Performances: agb, avian, Bear Hoovy

Home Depot vs Blackjack and Hookers

Prediction: 2-0 B&H
Outcome: 2-0 B&H

B&H’s payload superiority shows once more after a dominant game over Home Depot. They continue their streak of not losing to Home Depot on Swiftwater in matches and hopefully will continue to be dominant throughout the rest of the season. With some roster changes coming in for Home Depot, week 3 can be their saving grace.

Notable Performances: Poseidon, Insouciant, Kjr

Super Handsome Inteligent Team vs Never Knows Best

Prediction: 2-0 S.H.I.T.
Outcome: 2-0 S.H.I.T.

S.H.I.T. dominated Swiftwater in their scrims, giving up very few rounds in total, and their showing in the match proves it. Neum dropped a hefty 55 frags, and his team took notice. Bon Qui Qui tried his best to keep neum down, but to no avail.

Notable Performances: kinetic, neum, Hino, Bon Qui Qui

The Money Team vs Nine Trey Gangsters

Prediction: 2-0 TMT
Outcome: 2-0 TMT

Nothing surprising about this, the best team in advanced against a friend team. However, Yimi, train, and luxor put up a great performance, with all of them getting 20+ kills against TMT. Sadly, it wasn’t enough to snag a round off TMT. Mono and 5perm put up another great showing, with Makkabeus following suit.

Notable Performances: Makkabeus, 5perm, mono, Yimi, Luxor


Week 3 Predictions

The Money Team vs brandonbrandonbrandonbrandonbr

The Money Team has only been looking stronger with 0 losses in the season so far. Many brandons had a huge boost week 1, but then were stopped by the brick wall that was Bruh Team week 2. The Money Team should be able to just use their momentum to carry through Cascade week. I can see many brandons taking a round or two, but nothing more.

Prediction: 4-1 TMT

Players to watch out for: Mono, d3nny, ItsyAcore

Bruh Team vs Never Knows Best

I think this match will be much closer than people realize. NKB went 6-2 against S.H.I.T. in scrims, and Bruh went 5-3 against them. If NKB manages to neutralize rvn and keep Bon Qui Qui alive, this can be a very winnable match for them. I’m hoping NKB manages to put out a strong performance, to get back on their feet and start taking more wins.

Prediction: 4-2 Bruh

Players to watch out for: rvn, Bon Qui Qui, avian

Blackjack and Hookers vs Super Handsome Inteligent Team

B&H has been looking extremely strong on Cascade, going toe to toe with invite team “Impostors”. It is especially impressive when you think about “Imposters”’s recent performance against bffl’s best friends forever on Swiftwater last week. On the flip side, S.H.I.T. has been dropping rounds to teams like NKB and Bruh, so the odds are heavily in B&H’s favor.

Prediction: 4-2 B&H

Players to watch out for: Lexa, kjr, kinetic Moist Master

Home Depot eSports vs Nine Trey Gangsters

This match has potential to be MotW. The players who excel on Nine Trey Gangsters, notably Yimi, Luxor and train, are going to thrive on Cascade. Home Depot on the other hand has missed out on a day of scrims, something more worrisome when the team hasn’t managed to take a win yet and should want all the practice they can get. Even with Nine Trey Gangsters being for fun, I still think this is going to be a great match.

Prediction: 4-3 BOPIS MotW

Players to watch out for: Tosm, Yimi Luxor train, animus
