paper rex is a really hard team to antistrat since they play much more aggresively compared to other teams. Their strongest players are by far f0rsaken and jingg. However, they are also their weakest players and as long as you kill both of them you win the round. the strat? just aim diff lmao

true fnatic made a mistake letting bind through. their comp was also questionable against prx. ascent was really unlucky for fnatic i would say as there were heaps of rounds where mindfreak just solo brought the game back.

play slow and smart maybe. Also I think Astra maybe good agent to counter/slower their retake

If I remember correctly guild and fnatic played slow, and PRX came to them. CMIIW. I think some of the biggest reason PRX lose the round because:

  1. they throw, somehow they could lose when they have man advantage
  2. enemy play good retake with good setup

You just need Astra. But not a common Astra, the guy must dominate this agent and be capable of extract more than 100% of her.

Is it a problem? Yes, but still by far the best way to do it.

#25

so basically have Sugarz3ro on your team

Basically, yes, but you can add a few more guys on this list.

marved, mako, pancada, melser ... but there aren't many guys that can bring more than 100% of Astra.

#28

Frags

I just said Sugarz3ro bc in my mind he's the most iconic Astra player in the world, maybe not the best but his performance on Astra specifically was very flashy and nice, and the other ppl on your list play other controllers at a very high level as well

#35

Frags

indeed he is. when you mention "Astra" 99% of people will think sugarz3ro. It wasn't a coincidence, when PRX had to play against his Astra they had no answer.

Step 1 : kill f0rsaken
Step 2 : kill jingg
Step 3 : there's no step 3 mindfreak will Clutch

#24

You're wrong btw

Step 1: kill f0rsaken
Step 2: kill Jingg
Step 3: kill mindfreak
step 4: kill D4v4i
step 5: kill Benkai
step 6: wake up because you can only dream of getting all 5 of them

Slow them down, if they can't enter the site they can't win.

Go fast against them when you're attacking with no strats like you're playing ranked games. Going against them with their own strat instead of slow ones will just make them panic since they would not expect another team to have the same all aim no brain strat.

so you mean any Team need copy them & change strat in 5 day ? okay good luck with that lmao

the problem is, even if you killed f0rsaken and jinggg, their remain players still managed to do clutch to win the round. we already seen this many times where mindfreak or benkai win 1v2/3 or even 4.

I think if fnatic would’ve played slow more and baited Forsaken then they could have won. Also ban bind KEKW

Difference is, this is not sentinels. You shut down tenz sentinels auto lose, u shut down f0rsaken or jingg there is still mindfreak clutching, d4v41 with the impact kills, and benkai with all the comms and lineups and shit.

PRX just force aim duels. Most teams have that 1 player that can win those aim duels (Derke and yay most notably), but PRX has 2.

Also I think one key success to PRX has been their ability to counter Optic/EMEA/DRXs comfort pick. The amount of chaos forsaken brings just makes this so hard for teams to deal with. Not to mention Jingg on Raze is fucking crazy in his own right.
I'll be interested to see if optic is willing to ban bind to avoid falling into the same trap everyone else has.

I would remove drx from the list cuz prx always struggled against east Asian teams.

You're right, but PRX still beat DRX on bind in M1. My point is that Bind is almost every elite team's best map, or close to best map and PRX has turned that on its head.

PRX did not beat DRX on bind in M1, it's the other way, PRX was dominating but DRX destroyed their momentum after 1 clutch

then i feel like liquid is the only team that stands a chance against prx considering they have jamppi, nivera, sccream who litterally are sherrif gods

Maybe, they're also the closest thing to an EMEA PRX, living or dying off of chaos at times. I don't think Liquid would beat them though, PRX still have fantastic team play on top of all this, not so much Liquid.

I really like this take, and the one above.

Liquid have rarely ever looked like the best team in EMEA, but they've always looked like a good matchup against pretty much any team internationally. The only exception being Zeta division. They were very poor against them on Fracture and Split.

#83

Liquid is built for international events, not so much domestic. I do hope more chaotic teams make it into Champs though. Imagine a Champs with teams like PRX, TL, FaZe, Leviatan, Kru (or the NIP we saw in M1), and NORTHEPTION. While these might not all be the best teams that could make it, it would be fun as hell to watch.

Of the 3 international tournaments they played, liquid were knocked out of 2 by domestic rivals.

Fnatic made a lot of mistakes in map one.
Even with their economy.
Even still it was super close. They could have definitely have won that map.
If that was the case, who knows what could have happened in map 3.
It would be a 50/50 in my book.

#53

Also, that mid push from Jingg in the begginning of the round can be easily cutted out.
all fnc need was a player watching from top mid.
Wich never happened during the 2 or 3 times jingg done that.

if u r talkin abt round 20 then u r wrong they had to players at mid top but they still couldnt stop that push because
1) they got suppressed
2) the push was really really fast..... even if they were still waiting there after getting suppressed they couldnt have caught jingg off guard

bro can't imagine a team is just really good
prx's aggression is insanely powerful, and it's way smarter than most consider.
ascent, 2 set plays with jing's blast packs utilizing tons of cool util plays. the fade + raze was honestly perfection
bind - the amount of support forsaken gets on his yoru from the support players is insane, their TP plays are always backed up, the team gets simple calls and understands how to move. brimstone + yoru ult/molly plays were goated, utilizing fade + tp's also!
within their aggression is an immense amount of coordination and skill, you have to watch the games and the minimap closely to get it, but the narrative that they're simple a team that "run's it down" or is only fueled by aggression is wrong. they're super talented and really smart.

I agree with you, most of us only talk about how good entry from f0rsaken and jinggg, but behind this they have really good support from benkai, d4v4i, and mindfreak

If you haven't played prx before, I think it is important to choose fracture when playing against them. Because the map forces every team to push aggressively, even a team that hasn't played prx before will adapt well to aggression. I think that's why guild was able to take them to overtime on that map.

Guild really play good retake against them and hold push when they were attacker
