Match Prediction: Ooredoo Thunders - NO SORRY | Dota 2

While there is a classic lull in the competitive Dota 2 before the start of the new DPC season and a wave of reshuffles, battles continue on the local arena. Some of the most interesting in our case are played within the European Pro League Season 4.

European Pro League Season 4 is still at the stage of the group stages, or, to be a little more precise, at the climax. We'll talk about the last day of the group stage and the opening match of that very day.

Let's take a look at the Ooredoo Thunders - No Sorry, the teams vying for a place in the top of the playoff bracket. Let's try to figure out which team will be stronger and earn important points.

Shape Ooredoo Thunders

Ooredoo Thunders will play as the favorite in this match. The chance of winning the European mix is estimated by the odds around 1.35.

Bookmakers believe in Ooredoo Thunders for a reason: the team managed to earn fame among the guests of the TIR-2 stage. They feel quite comfortable in such conditions, which adds up to a pleasant performance for the players.

This performance is provided by Ooredoo Thunders performers. The composition is combative and full of names, although not the loudest, but still.

Ooredoo Thunders roster

  • TA2000
  • No!ob
  • meLes
  • Omar
  • kaori

In fact, all the players of the Ooredoo Thunders roster are worthy of mention and appeared on our screens in one way or another - some more often like TA2000 and No!ob from Meles, some less often like OmaR.

The Ooredoo Thunders roster has a mix of Rune Eaters and Coolguys. Both teams once claimed local success in tournaments of the same European Pro League Season 4 level and were even noted in the DPC.

In general, for participation in a local championship like ours, the roster is just right.

Performance of Ooredoo Thunders

Since the team officially got together six months ago, they managed to play at various local tournaments, where they didn’t get much success, but within the framework of the European Pro League Season 4 specifically, things are going extremely well.

In the championship under the auspices of the EPL, the team takes the 2nd place before the start of this match. The team has 5 wins in six matches, and not a single card has been given away, which is already something:

  • 2-0 victory over No Bounty Hunter
  • 2-0 victory over Yet Another Team
  • 2-0 victory over Luna Gaming
  • 2-0 victory over Into The Breach
  • 2-0 victory over EZ Katka
  • Lost to Water Rune Enjoyers 1-2

Ooredoo Thunders suffered their first defeat in the match against Water Rune Enjoyers, although they approached him from a position of strength, not otherwise. Competitive struggle, although with a strong team by the standards of the tournament, but not up to Ooredoo Thunders

once again shows that anything can happen at Europea Pro League tournaments.

Heroes of Ooredoo Thunders

They play in moderation, do not invent the wheel and try to show the strongest preparations. Most picked Ooredoo Thunders characters: Tiny (18 matches, 77% wins), Marci (14 matches, 92% wins), Death Prophet (14 matches, 64% wins), Pangolier (13 games, 92% wins), Batrider (12 games, 58% of wins).

I note that with a fairly large win rate, the heroes of Ooredoo Thunders have a high win rate. This indicates the level of play of the “lizards” in relation to their counterparts.

Form No Sorry

In the status of an outsider, No Sorry will suit this match. The chance of winning a team from the Eastern European region is estimated at a coefficient of around 3.

Looking at the number, you might think that Ooredoo Thunders has all the cards in this match, but I would not rush to such a conclusion. Still, the teams look pretty equal to me.

A team from the Eastern European region similar to Ooredoo Thunders: the same ambitious performers with the same inclinations for more. Like the Ooredoo Thunders lineup, No Sorry has yet to achieve its ambitions.

Line-up No Sorry

  • dream
  • Mannik
  • cloud
  • Lefitan
  • BLACKARXANGEL

Until recently, the No Sorry roster represented Team Unique in the local arena, but in September the players and the organization parted ways.

During the period of cooperation, the team did not exact any special results, however, there were moments of pride. All of them were at TIR-2 tournaments at best.

Efficiency No Sorry

In the 2022 season, the team played within the DPC, where they played in the second division of Eastern Europe. There, the team managed to take the TOP-6 twice, which allowed them to keep a slot in the regional league for the next season.

Speaking of local events, for No Sorry it was D2CL. The most successful season was 11. Then in the final, No Sorry beat Virtus.pro with a score of 3-1.

Of the latest tournaments, European Pro League Season 3 can be noted, where the team reached the TOP-6. This season, No Sorry will try to surpass their result, and now they seem to have everything for this.

Before the start of the match, the team takes first place in the group stage table. The team has 6 wins in 7 matches.

No Sorry Results in European Pro League Season 4

Among other things, No Sorry will receive a technical victory over EZ Katka.

History of personal confrontations

Previously, the teams played each other in the European Pro League Season 3. Then Ooredoo Thunders celebrated a clear victory.

Match outcome

In this confrontation, I want to see an equal fight. Both teams can show decent DotA, which is evidenced by their performance in the European Pro League Season 4.

The most real result for me will be playing a full-fledged bo3. That's what I'll bet on.

Result: total +2.5.

All bookmakers have agreed that NO SORRY is the favorite. This can be noticed because odds on them are 1.647. This number in the favor of Ooredoo Thunders amounts 5.333. Respectively, the last ones are the underdogs of the upcoming match.
