BLAST Series Miami - Preview and Win Probabilities

BLAST Series Miami - Preview and Win Probabilities
Original text on
Next stop of the BLAST Pro Series is Miami, USA. There we will see 6 great teams battle for victory and 125.000$:
The Danish team will defend the BLAST Series title they won in Sao Paulo and are absolute favorites as they are dominating the pro CS:GO scene the last year.
Natus Vincere
In China, NaVi showed up and won the StarSeries & i-league tournament with a stunning performance of s1mple and electronic. These two smashed the KD ratio scores and carried their team to victory.
The European super squad struggled at the last event in China and did not reach the playoffs. But they had time to work on strategies with their coach YNk and should do better in Miami.
Fallens MiBR had a top placement at the IEM Major in Katowice but could not succeed on home turf at the BLAST Pro Sao Paulo. Can coldzera and TACO come back stronger in the USA?
Team Liquid
Still the 2nd team in the HLTV ratings in April, Team Liquid plays in front of a home crowed. In Sao Paulo they went to the finals, but have been beaten by Astralis after winning the first map on Dust2. Again, they will be up for revenge.
After the IEM Major in Katowice, C9 had massive roster changes — in Miami they will present autimatic, RUSH, Golden, vice and cajunB to play for the team. The US Major winners are absolute underdogs, but can they put up a run like in Boston? We will see.
Taking a look at the odds on betting platforms we find some win probabilities and can show them in a 100% graph:

Win Probabilities Round 1-5
It is no surprise that bookmakers are looking for Astralis to win the tournament, followed by Team Liquid, Natus Vincere, MiBR, FaZe and C9 dead end.
After Starseries & i-league NaVi will put up a fight to get into the finals and get a rematch against Astralis (as they lost at the BLAST Series Lissabon). So my top 3 will be: Astralis, NaVi and Team Liquid.

(Pre-Worlds Thoughts) BO3 Rostermania Predictions

Note: These predictions are just predictions combined with a bit of fantasy. Don’t take it too seriously! The reason I’m posting this before Worlds, is because I’d like to see what people think before Worlds and then after. I know it’s long, but I think it’s a fun read for a few dream teams which could potentially form
All of AW was pretty much dominated by OG and Faze and I don’t think they are going to make a change for BO3 given how good they both are. Also, BO3 will pretty much mean that no underage players will be on top organizations because of the 18+ age restriction for Champs and the World League. This means that Huke, Temp and TJHaly will probably be released from Denial and Elevate.
I think from the rostermania that is to come, there will be 3 emerging teams which will be able to seriously compete with OG and Faze in BO3. These are my picks;
ELEVATE Aches (Captain, Flex Player) Saints (Main SMG Slayer) Slacked (OBJ) Octane (Anchor, Main AR)
Elevate take a gamble pick up Aches after releasing TJHaly hoping that they get Ghosts/BO2 Aches instead of AW Aches. The other option for Elevate is to go back to its known roots and pick up Classic who is a fantastic Slayer but won’t put Elevate on the same level as OG or Faze. Whilst it is a risk for Elevate, if everything pans out for them, the risk will yield very very high return. I think Aches will be motivated more than ever with the huge cash pool offered by Activision and will grind out the game resulting in the return of BO2 Aches in BO3. At some point, he will be given captaincy of Elevate.
If Aches truly returns to form, this iteration of the Elevate roster will easily be the strongest it has ever had. Elevate would finally be on the level of Faze and OG now that they have two solid SMG slayers who can keep up with the SMGs of OG and Faze in Saints and Aches. Most importantly, Aches’ leadership and mentoring will help Saints develop from just a top slayer into much more complete player (as he did so with Scump and Crimsix). Also, Aches brings that champion mentality to an incredibly talented squad taking them from T4 to real championship contenders. The foundations of this team would be a lot like Complexity; Octane would be that strong snap-shotting Anchor player, Aches would be probably play Crimsix’ role of supporting both the SMG slaying as well has helping the Anchor to rotate when required, Saints would probably be the main SMG slayer like what Aches was, and Slacked would be the objective based player who wins a lot of their 50/50 gunfights in the objective like Teepee. Whilstthis is a young team which is brimming with talent, the difference Aches makes to it over someone like Classic is that his leadership betters everyone and takes the individual skill and awareness of each of the members to the next level. I really hope Elevate goes for Aches and Aches returns to his incredible form in BO3.
ENVY Jkap (Captain, Flex Player) Jurd (OBJ Based Slayer) Loony (OBJ Based Slayer) Slasher (Anchor, Main AR)
Hastro has done well with Envy, expanding it so that he’s acquired top CS and Smite teams. But, it’s a little embarrassing that the grassroots of Envy struggled the entire year and couldn’t win a single Championship. I think there’s an obligation on Hastro to invest in Envy’s CoD team so that it can legitimately compete for a title in BO3 which maybe the first year CoD looks professional to other eSports.
Hastro sits down the core of the team; Loony and Jkap (Goonjar was a last-minute fill-in and Jurd was on loan) and asks them who they would want on their team for BO3. After scrimming for Worlds with Jurd and actually finding out that he and Loony together make an excellent SMG duo, they tell Hastro they want to pick Jurd up. So Envy buys Jurd from TCM because they can and Jurd as an asset will probably yield a good return on investment. They then approach Slasher who is LF2 with Classic on Denial and ask him to join Envy. Seeing as there aren’t really much better options out there for his own team with Classic on Denial, Slasher joins Envy as their main AR and Anchor player.
The team’s foundation is its two objective based slayers who both are two of the fastest SMGs in the game. Loony and Jurd absolutely do so much work together and will do be an incredible duo in BO3 which 100% can deal with the likes of Scump and Karma as well as Zooma and Attach. The speed of Loony and Jurd is matched by the speed and aggression of Slasher as the Anchor. Even though Goonjar was on the team, he is dropped for Slasher who has a much better shot as well as has the ability to go on huge match-changing streaks like he did for Faze Red and Denial in AW. Jkap is the final piece of the puzzle being the veteran leader and play caller. Jkap is the support player (or flex player) who supports Slasher in rotation battles against Formal and Clayster as a secondary AR (with his famous M8 shot). Also, he helps in the smg slaying battles when required like he did in Ghosts as a support player with great success.
With two of the best objective based SMG slayers, a top tier rotating AR player and an excellent support player with veteran leadership, this Envy squad matches both Faze and OG pound for pound in BO3 and would probably do so in AW as well. This squad also fits the Envy mould; veteran players who are classy members of the esports community. Not to mention, Envy would always have the “home-side” advantage whenever they played in a Gfinity tournament. This line-up is one that is worthy of the Envy legacy and it’s important both for Envy CoD fans and the organization’s face as a whole, for Hastro to acquire a truly top tier team in Envy’s grass roots eSport.
UNITE GAMING Parasite (Captain, Main AR, Anchor) Aqua (Main SMG Slayer) Mirx (OBJ) Nameless (Support Slayer)
Unless Parasite wins Worlds with Epsilon, I think he will change rosters by leaving Epsilon and joining a new organization to build his own team. I can’t predict which organization but if it were to be one, it would probably be Unite Gaming given the success Parasite has had with that organization in the past. For Parasite to have real success in BO3, he will need his own team so he can build to his liking and playstyle. Otherwise there will simply be too many fights which would be lethal to the team. Any championship calibre team needs stability and all players on the same page.
So the first player Parasite picks up is Aqua from Epsilon with the idea of picking up an aggressive roaming slayer who can pick up important two pieces with good map positioning and excellent gunskill. Aqua fits this mould perfectly, and in many ways is very similar to BO2 Karma. I’m predicting Aqua agrees to team with Parasite over his tR teammates because at the end of the day he would take winning over having a good time. Granted BO3 has obvious similarities to BO2, you’d probably bet on Parasite to win a championship over most players. After acquiring Aqua, Parasite completes the team by getting the ON duo of Mirx and Nameless, who for the same reasons as Aqua, decide to join this Unite lineup. Parasite specifically looks to pick up Mirx for his incredibly reliable objective based slaying inside Hardpoints and around Flags. The final pick up for Nameless is to complete the squad with an all-round top veteran slayer who is an excellent SND player.
It’s interesting to me because a lot of people think very lowly of Nameless when there’s a good argument to say across both Ghosts and BO2 he was a top 10 player which is something very very few players could hope to boast. He was probably top 5 in Ghosts given how dominant he was both pre and post Vector patch and his second half of BO2 was where he established himself as a top tier player being one of the few players to ever beat Complexity (and win the championship). As a fun piece of trivia, Nameless statistically topped all of Complexity when they played in grand finals of tournaments in both BO2 and Ghosts (Karma and Clayster) in almost every gametype. If you don’t believe me watch the VoDs, it’s still on youtube! Sure when it comes to now AW isn’t his best game, but it’s pretty clear BO3 will be pretty much nothing like AW competitively. Going by his performances in Ghosts and BO2, I think Parasite would be wise to include him as the final member of the squad.
Parasite is a T1 anchor and will 100% be able to keep players like Clayster, Formal and Slasher at bay. Also in general as the main AR, I think Unite have a solid foundation in Respawns against the top teams if Parasite is playing as well as he can. With Parasite holding spawns for the team, Mirx will the other centrally important player for the team. He needs to be winning his gunfights and trading effectively in the hill and if he’s anything like he was on BO2, this squad will be so hard to beat. Although Mirx hit a slump in Ghosts, he has been really impressive as an objective based slayer in AW. It’s just unfortunate that he was pretty unlucky with rosters he landed on but for ON, he is easily the MVP and has actually had a really strong year individually in terms of statistical performances. If that same skill transfers over into BO3, This Unite squad will be tough competition for OG and Faze.
The final pieces of the puzzle will take Unite from being a T4 team to being a Championship quality team. Nameless is the glue of this team. If you get consistent performances out of him on this squad, this team would be on par with the best in game modes like Hardpoint. Nameless is a really strong SMG slayer and how he trades for Mirx in the objective will be a huge factor in hanging close to SMG slay-heavy teams like Faze or the Envy squad previously mentioned. If Nameless can do that whilst helping Parasite out on rotation with his own AR (which he’s also really nice with), then this team whilst not necessarily flashy, will be a very efficient respawn team. Aqua provides that Fariko Karma kind of player who gets the nasty two pieces which help break a hill or fend off a wave of pushes by the other team in CTF or HP. Aqua on tR did this time and time again against Faze Red and Denial at AW Champs effortlessly and I think he will be such a strong player for Unite as a raw slayer who breaks hills and pushes out spawns. In many ways, this team is like Fariko Impact 2.0. I think whilst not as flashy or eye-widening on paper, this team has the structure and talent to be incredibly efficient in respawns against the best of the best like OG and Faze.
Whilst being a really strong respawn team, where this team outshines everyone else is in SND. With top SND players like Parasite and Nameless as well as really clutch players like Mirx and Aqua, I would really be surprised if this team lost SND if they were adequately prepared. Overall, this team is not like the others in that it has 4 extremely powerful slayers and tries to kill everything. Rather, this team works on efficiency and teamwork to just grind out a steady win in one of the three respawns and then simply execute in SND. I think Parasite’s time in exile has come to an end and if he manages to assemble this team, he will return to the top of the tree where he once was. I’d love to see the story line of OG vs Unite unfold with Unite painted as “villains”. I remember how fun it was to watch Impact play OG because the stakes felt so high. I think this team is a worthy adversary for OG just like the others listed.
The End!
So there are my picks! At the end of the day, I really want there to be several super strong teams in BO3 so it isn't always Team A vs Team B in the Grand Finals of a tournament. The more competition, the more exciting tournaments and matches become. What do you think about the individual rosters? Are they realistic in your opinion? Do they stack up to Faze and OG? Which team would you go for?
TL;DR: I predict that the following teams will form which are serious contenders to beat Faze and OG:
Elevate: Aches, Saints, Slacked, Octane
Envy: Jkap, Jurd, Loony, Slasher
Unite: Nameless, Aqua, Mirx, Parasite

Please notice! Odds shown might have changed in the meantime.
You can read the full analysis in our website we wanted to give you a short resume for every team.
Fnatic: As expected – Fnatic is the clear favorite for winning this year’s ESL One Cologne, as it was the case with last year’s tournament as well. Both Betway and Bet365 agree on this, and they are marking them with quite a decent odd – 4.00.
SK Gaming: One of the biggest surprises of this tournament, at least when it comes to the odds, is surely SK Gaming. With Bet365 giving them 4.50 (slightly more than fnatic) and Betway giving them 4.00 (exactly same as fnatic), it is yet to be seen can this new roster can prove their odds on the tournament.
Also, please remember that SK Gaming bought the Luminosity Gaming roster.
Natus Vincere: Na’Vi is always among the top CS: GO teams, which makes for no surprise that they are among the favorites to win this tournament as well. Both Bet365 and Betway agree on one the probability of them winning the tournament – they are giving them a straight up winner odd of 5.00, which is not that much considering that the main favorites, Fnatic, has 4.00.
G2 Esports: G2 is coming into this tournament with fairly good odds. Bet365 offers 7.50 while Betway offers a bit less – 7.00. Considering the fact that their first match is against SK Gaming, it will be really interesting to see how it unfolds. In my honest opinion, Smithzz and Scream should be able to wage the match in their favor.
Astralis: With 3 losses in a row, things have not been great lately for Astralis. They are going into this tournament with a couple of awful matches where they did not take their chances at all. When you combine that with the fact that they are in a group with CLG, Dignitas and Gambit and you will realize that no matter their recent bad games – they still have a pretty good chance of going through to the playoffs.
Ninjas in Pyjamas: NiP is, by far, the most underrated team in the tournament. Truth be told, there is a good reason behind their huge odds (10 on Betway and 11 on Bet365). In the last 5 matches they did not taste victory, which can prove to be fatal coming into such a huge tournament like ESL One Cologne.
