We take a look at two of today's games in the BLAST Premier Fall Series and the IEM Beijing qualifiers.
Complexity will take on FaZe in this lower-bracket matchup. FaZe were dealt a big blow after NiKo went to G2 earlier in the week and now have to play with olofmeister as a stand-in. He actually performed quite well against BIG despite being away from the game for a significant period of time, and they managed to steal away Nuke against them which is a bit of a victory in itself when you consider the circumstances. However, Complexity should take this series without too much of an issue. Not only because of the stand-in situation, but also because there isn’t really a map where they will be scared to play FaZe.
Illuminar +1.5 (1.90)
Illuminar have just been rekt by different issues recently, everything from power outages to internet issues have forced them to play with a stand-in in several of their latest matches. However, assuming that they actually have their full lineup for this game, I think they have enough quality to steal a map away at close to even odds.
