G2 - Latest performance & results
The mixed team around star player NiKo already won the opening match against Evil Geniuses two days ago and thus enters this duel as the clear favorite. Even though the game against Complexity didn't go according to plan and, as so often, only NiKo could really convince, the team will be well prepared and fully focused going into this matchup. A big problem for G2 is currently the lack of consistency of AmaNEk and huNter-, who always show solid performances, but often remain well below their potential.
Especially in the BLAST Spring Groups, the first two duels showed again how essential it is for G2 that the two players perform. IGL nexa does a good job as an announcer, but in the last months he does not show as solid performances as in his first months at G2. The team may even have too much firepower, but if G2 manages to consistently bring all individuals to their top level, we're talking about a truly world-class team. Between G2 and Evil Geniuses, the odds still favor the mixed team quite heavily.
Evil Geniuses - Latest performance & results
Evil Geniuses had to admit defeat to NiKo and Co. on the first day of play and only made it to the Consolidation Final thanks to a big surprise in the match with Vitality. It should be noted, however, that shortly before the start of the game IGL apEX withdrew from the active lineup and announced that he needed a break for personal reasons. About the exact reasons and the duration of the break is so far nothing known. Nevertheless, the North American team was able to hold its own against the top team around ZywOo and thus celebrate a great success.
Since their return to Europe, the team had to deal with numerous difficulties and was not quite back at the top of the world. At DreamHack January, the team lost in the group stage against Fun Plus Phoenix, who are currently performing well with stand-in chrisJ. Especially because of the defeat on the first match day, the odds between G2 and Evil Geniuses put the Americans as the clear underdogs.
