Day 3 of the EU West The International 10 qualifiers. Here are my picks and predictions for 2 big series of the day.
Chicken Fighters +1.5 @ 1.50
Chicken Fighters were one of the best surprises of those qualifiers for now. They still didn’t lose a single series, and they started their journey in round 1 of the lower bracket. 2-0 vs No Bounty Hunter, 2-0 vs Vikin.gg and 2-0 vs Hellbear Smashers are pretty respectable results so far. However, now they have the biggest test so far, Team Liquid. Liquid barely beat Spider Pigz with 2-1 and lost cleanly to Tundra with 0-2, so they might be shocked a bit. This is a real opportunity for Chicken Fighters to show their worth against Liquid who is not in the best form so far. Actually, they are way beyond what they need to win that qualifier.
OG @ 1.51
OG played an amazing series vs Team Nigma yesterday. The whole match was back and forth but OG managed to close it down with 2-1. They showed a lot of weaknesses, and I don’t think Tundra has the power to exploit those weaknesses. Yes, Tundra is amazing in these qualifiers, and with 2-0 vs Brame and 2-0 vs Liquid they are looking really good. However, I do think they have a final boss to beat here. OG is one of the favourites for the TI10 spot, together with Nigma, and I don’t think Tundra can come between those two. They are surely a dangerous team nowadays, but I don’t think that they can take OG down.
