Vitality - Latest performance & results
Vitality has had an incredible year and with ZywOo they have probably the best player in the world in their lines. Furthermore, they were probably the first team to successfully implement a sixth man into their roster and since then have been showing very solid performances with Nivera. How Valve's decision not to tolerate player changes will affect Vitality is still unclear. As it stands, however, it will not be possible or advisable to enter RMR tournaments with six players.
However, Vitality had minor problems at the last two tournaments and were not as successful as before. Especially the emotions on the part of shox and apEX suggested some difficulties within the lineup. However, Vitality now had about two weeks to prepare for the BLAST group stage and will have clarified possible difficulties and discrepancies.
At the BLAST Global Final, the team made it to the upper-bracket final undefeated, but was ultimately defeated by Astralis and NAVI, both 2-1, and was thus eliminated again before the final match after the IEM Global Final. Due to their great year, Vitality is still the clear favorite in the duel with Complexity in view of the odds. However, the last performances of the French were not that convincing.
Complexity - Latest performance & results
The mixed lineup of Complexity was another huge surprise of the last year. Towards the end of the year, however, the team had to deal with a player change and health problems and currently a long negative streak. At the BLAST Premier Group Stages, the team will play with their full lineup for the first time in a few weeks. Main-AWP poizon seems to have fully recovered and will compete with the team again.
Both at the IEM Global Challenge and in the new year at the BLAST Global Finals and the cs_summit 7 the team was eliminated early with various stand-ins. This is another reason why the odds are clearly against Complexity in their duel with Astralis. The last encounter between the two teams took place at the BLAST Global Finals and was clearly won by the French top team.
Vitality vs. Complexity - Map-Veto prediction
The bans are Train and Vertigo. Between Vitality and Complexity, the tip for the maps is Dust2 and Mirage. As deciders Nuke and Overpass would be well conceivable. However, both teams had some time to prepare for the tournament and surprise picks are quite possible.
Vitality vs. Complexity - Prediction
The spectators can expect an exciting matchup between two top teams of last year. The current form of main-AWP poizon is still questionable after his health break and also star player jks still has problems to find back to his top form after his transfer.
Between Vitality and Complexity, the tip is still on the French favorite. Due to the strong performance last year and the low odds, we bet on a 2:1 win for Vitality. As a stake, we see four units as appropriate.
