Main Week 4 Review and Week 5 Predictions

RGL-Main

   WiLLmaTiC   - 7/1/2019
Now that Cascade and Vigil have past, we have 3 weeks of pure staple highlander maps, starting with Product. Product is known for its Sniper dominant gameplay, and in order for teams to be productive they will need to manage the other team’s sniper while protecting their own.

Week 4 Review


As Foretold by Rayman5000 vs Oprah Winfrey Network (MOTW)

Prediction: GL;HF
Outcome: 1-2 Oprah Winfrey Network
Logs: First Half Second Half Third Half Full Match

Unfortunately for As Foretold by Rayman5000, they too are susceptible to roster issues, resulting in them playing with 3 subs and having to shift players around. Joey Lemons was able to pull an impressive 990DPM. On the defensive front, Raptoir was able to consistently stuff As Foretold by Rayman5000’s uber pushes, allowing his team to extend the capture times.

MVP: Raptoir


ANTHRAX vs Loud Noises

Prediction: 2-1 ANTHRAX
Outcome: 1-2 Loud Noises
Logs: First Half Second Half Third Half Full Match

A fairly close game between these two teams, as long as you only look at the round times. Loud Noises was able to get 67 more frags than ANTHRAX. dafran had a hand in this, scoring 44 kills over the course of the match. Zalway was able to pull almost 20k damage which allowed Loud Noises to pick up some easy clean up frags.

MVP: Zalway


Plan B vs Cafeteria Milk

Prediction: 0-2 Cafeteria Milk
Outcome : 0-2 Cafeteria Milk
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

A strange low frag and low damage match for both teams. humphrey was the only player to get over 10k damage, in addition to top fragging on his team at 29 kills. RPC_33 was able to top frag in the server with 30 frags, however it was not enough.

MVP: humphrey


Swift Inc. vs Luigi's REAL Italian Ice

Prediction: 1-2 Luigi's REAL Italian Ice
Outcome: 2-0 Swift Inc.
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

In an interesting move, Luigi's REAL Italian Ice moved pantherr to Soldier and had sorry, squidie on Demo. While this change worked out overall, they were unable to secure a win. spaghetti with 46 frags and nucket with 36, were able to secure the victory for Swift Inc.

MVP: spaghetti


No.3 Pencils vs We 4fit

Prediction: 2-1 No.3 Pencils
Outcome: 2-0 No.3 Pencils
Logs: First Half Second Half Full Match

Unfortunately for We 4fit, this was just another match where they were simply outclassed. The one exception being alfredodan. Unfortunately for him however, his 30 kills were not enough for We 4fit to win one round. Tabda was able to easily control We 4fit’s flank, providing more opportunities for aggression.

MVP: Tabda


Burnt Toast vs Bye Week

Prediction: Bye Week
Outcome: NA
Logs: NA

Burnt Toast had a bye week, nothing to report.

MVP: NA



Week 5 Predictions


Oprah Winfrey Network vs Cafeteria Milk
Prediction: 4-2 Oprah Winfrey Network

Both teams have snipers who are able to pop off. I expect the rounds to be fairly close, while mainly determined by which sniper gets more frags per round. Joey Lemons will also pull some good damage numbers.

As foretold by Rayman5000 vs Loud Noises
Prediction: GL;HF

As Foretold by Rayman5000 is looking to bounce back from their disappointing loss last week, while Loud Noises is looking to prove themselves against one of the division's best teams.

Players to watch: WiLLmaTiC, reigh


Swift Inc. vs Burnt Toast
Prediction: 4-1 Swift Inc.

Unfortunately for Burnt Toast, Swift Inc. is simply much more experienced on a staple map such as Product. Burnt Toast may be able to squeak a round out if the stars align, but Swift Inc. should win this pretty handily.

Players to watch: nucket, woodchip


ANTHRAX vs No.3 Pencils
Prediction: 3-4 No.3 Pencils (MOTW)

This should be a really close game. Both teams have very respectable snipers, in addition to having combo’s to follow up on their picks. Whip will provide some excellent damage for push off of. Tabda should be able to get some big bombs off on patrick after milk’s picks.

Players to watch: Jazz, milk


Plan B vs We 4fit
Prediction: 4-2 Plan B

Plan B has recently bolstered their roster with RPC_33 and dro. On the flipside however, We 4fit recently lost Theoretical Spy, which is definitely a hit to their fragging potential. If We 4fit wins rounds they will be by the skin of their teeth.

Players to watch: RPC_33, Stocking
