Don’t think the roster on HLTV is correct here. It says Gla1ve is playing here, however he made a post on Facebook on the 12th saying that his lung collapsed once again, and he will stay in the hospital for at least 4 more days. And further so, don’t think he will jump back into CSGO so quickly, and if he does, he could be a major hold down due to being rusty and what not. Nostalgie is not an official roster, it does not have a official lineup, it seems like one very well off guy just hires teams to play for Nostalgie, the rosters are often changed at the last moment and what not. Since this is not the players’ main teams either, they often seem to not care on the same level and this leads poor performances and what not. Overall there isn’t much to say about Nostalgie here, they are a mix of players put together and we do not even know the full rosters. If that does not scream skip, I do not know what does.
So the good old E-Frag. I analyse these guys a whole bunch, so you all should already have the basic run down + They are on Lounge so often it seems. E-Frag are just the kinds of inconsistency, at times they can be insanely good, like really good however at other times, you see them losing matches…..matches like this, ones that they really should be winning. All of their team has a really high mechanical skill ceiling, obviously some more than others, however point still stands. They don’t necessarily rely on that one player to carry them in games, of course if lets say Dreamer is having a really good game, it helps a whole bunch as for me, he is their best player, however it is not necessarily for them to take games. It’s more about the whole team contributing. One player that has been standing out recently is Bubble, guy has been on fire and really putting in work, so if he can repeat that here, Nostalgie is in trouble. E-Frag really should be winning this, they have the team chemistry that Nostalgie most likely won’t have as they are a mix, and the skill ceiling is quite a bit higher too.
For me this has skip written all over it. Horrible odds, Nostalgie roster not clear, plus it is a mix most likely, if you take the HLTV roster and simply -Glaive. E-Frag SHOULD be winning this if the roster is as HLTV suggests and once again -Glaive, however I would not bet my house on it. The Nostalgie guys have some decent players, especially Magiskboy however eh, don’t think it should be too much to bother E-Frag in a BO3. Given that the odds are 80-20, and the uncertainty in rosters, I am simply skipping this and recommend the game. 65-35 E-Frag here.
Simply going to skip this. Horrible odds, it’s a mix with HLTV not even having the correct roster I do not think. E-Frag is E-Frag, not the team that I trust the most with consistency, so at these odds, just not worth it.
My odds = 65-35 E-Frag
My risk = High
My bet = Skip
My advice = Skip
My odds for this match: E-frag.net 65:35 Nostalgie
