Predicted result of the Entity vs Talon Esports matchup
Despite not the most successful Long Corner of the group stage, Talon Esports show a better game than their opponents. Let's bet on the victory of Talon Esports.
Entity is the 21st team in the world ranking. The first round of DPC in their region played well, taking the 4th place in the end. There were of course risks to be out of the safety zone, but the replay put everything in its place and from the company of Tundra, ETG, OG the last were weaker. Lima Major held decent. As a result, they share the 5th-6th place with EG. The second round of the DPC is quite unsuccessful. They finished in 6th place. They could have been relegated to the 2nd division, but in the re-games for the 6th-8th place they coped with Nigma and Monaspa. The 3rd round did not differ from the 2nd round. The team again settled on the 6th place, almost getting relegated to the 2nd div. But they confidently went through the regional qualifications for TI, sharing a slot with Quest Esports.
Talon Esports is the 4th team in the world ranking. In the first round of DPC they were only on the 3rd line, missing Execration and GeekFam. But Lima Major is going great. They finished it on the 3rd place. The 2nd round of DPC after such a result at the Major naturally ends on the 1st place. DreamLeague was not so bright. The team only managed to get to the 11th-12th position. Major in Berlin is a bit more successful. They shared 7th-8th place with Team Aster. The 3rd round the team played quite disgustingly. They gave away a lot of series and ended up on the 4th place even without getting to the last major of the year.
I didn't like Talon's performance at all. The team didn't really adapt to the weather. ETG look much more confident. I'll take a clean win for them.
I'm a prognosticator, that's what I do for a living. I devote all my time to it. I have no other interests.
I have been doing this for quite a long time and have achieved some success in it. Whether to believe me or not is up to everyone. But why not try? Maybe you like this kind of life too!
Prediction: ETG wins!
