well oxg is good team but fnatic better for sure. 2-0 fnatic maybe 2-1 they can win a map
oxg have ramadan buff. fnatic 0-2 oxg
Oxygen has always played differently in EU and FNATIC did some changes recently. However patch 2.06 favours FNATIC as Viper buff will change the game a lot. Probably a 2-1 WIN for FNATIC.
FNC 2-0 likely. FNC 2-1 second most likely, if OXG show up on icebox|ascent. Other scorelines unlikely, but possible if FNC simply have an off-day & OXG aim diff.
Both teams favor bind, the problem is FNC are the best bind team in EU & OXG have never ran Viper on it. Split is going to be instaban for FNC, considering it's another potential strength for OXG & weakness for FNC. OXG prob bans haven; if they for some reason don't do so, FNC favored.
The two dangerous maps are icebox and ascent. OXG had a close game with FUT on icebox + they won vs BBL on icebox in challengers 1. They also run the viper comp there. Fnatic's icebox has been a little shaky, both wins over Liquid & Vitality were close & they got massacred by Acend. They seem to generally struggle against Reyna there, which OXG can definitely pull out.
Same story on ascent, close game with FUT, win vs BBL. Though with this one, I would definitely give the edge to FNC considering they are also formidable on this map, it seems to have become almost a second staple for them alongside bind.
Unless OXG reworked their playstyle to incorporate Astra & Viper or FNC have an off-day, it's difficult to see FNC losing. It has been two weeks since an official game from OXG, so it is likely that they have reworked some aspects, but may be shaky incorporating them in official.
Who knows maybe OXG have been praccing Haven offline and pull it out after bind/ascent ban. Definitely potential for OXG; FNC are just a tough first opponent with all the momentum they have & how favorable the bans would be for them.
GL to both teams. No doubt in my mind, that OXG have studied the crap out of FNC. Let's see what they will bring.
Edit: They picked both Split and Haven. Let's see how this goes.
Also the team was 3 days old when they faced Acend. So that might have played a factor to them getting swept 13-0 vs Acend.
Certainly a likely contributing factor to that loss. There are too many confounding factors to consider the "why" questions, so I prefer to stick to what happened and extrapolate from that for the most part.
It certainly hinges on the regional diff and how great that will actually be; that's the biggest unknown, even with BBL having a close game with Liquid, the uncertainty remains for these two games today.
would like to see a closer match, but fnatic have been so clean lately
and this is oxygens map pick? HAHAHAHAHAHA
Fnatic's biggest enemy is themselves.
Well OXG did not ban Haven, they are showing off something they have never played; Astra. And it is not working very well.
Sheeeeeeeshh EU Just watch Turks power.Sheeeeeeeshh EU Just watch Turks power.Sheeeeeeeshh EU Just watch Turks power.Sheeeeeeeshh EU Just watch Turks power.
If toront's hands are keep shaking like this, will be 2-0 for sure after this .. he is literally lost almost any aim fight. "turkish jett" makes a huge pressure on him aswel i bet.
m1tez is basically my ranked instalock bottom frag reyna teammate
GGs, started close, but the skill diff is real. m1tez not so ice cold on icebox.
lmao turkeys such a bad region
two spots BTW
