Preview of Group D in week 3 of #HomeSweetHome

#HomeSweetHome Week 3: Group D Preview

#HomeSweetHome is approaching playoffs and today it's time for Group D to conclude the last two teams who will move on. As per usual we will analyse the teams and make our predictions. BIG, Endpoint, SKADE and Team Secret will fight it out in Group D for the two spot to the playoffs and a chance at the total of $40,000 that gets awarded weekly. Team Secret are new to #HomeSweetHome and enters the server. It won’t be an easy task for the newcomers as the two time champions BIG are looking to repeat their success and besides that Endpoint and SKADE have played two respectable weeks coming into this one. Below we will review all four teams and give our final predictions on how we think they will fare.

Teams 

BIG

  • Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz
  • Nils "k1to" Gruhne
  • Tizian "tiziaN" Feldbusch
  • İsmailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş
  • Florian "syrsoN" Rische

BIG enters the third week of #HomeSweetHome as a two time champion and there is no doubt they are favoured to win another one. XANTARES and syrsoN have been outstanding this far and it would be no surprise if one of them picks up the MVP of the week when it’s all said and done. Group D might just be the toughest of them all, as all four teams are of high caliber, but in all honesty that should not be a problem for BIG, at all. It all should be as simple as BIG winning the group and the other three fighting for the second spot. However the opening game between BIG and Endpoint could turn that on its head as a best of one between the two could definitely end with a surprise. 

Endpoint

  • Kia “Surreal” Man
  • Joey “CRUC1AL” Steusel
  • Thomas “Thomas” Utting
  • Robin “robiin” Sjögren
  • Max “MiGHTYMAX” Heath    

Endpoint has reached playoffs in both of the previous weeks of #HomeSweetHome, but got knocked out in the quarters both times. As much as the guys in Endpoint wants to improve this time around, things will definitely be more challenging as the group draw is quite rough. The opening game against BIG is as hard as it gets and it is very likely Endpoint will find themselves in an elimination match straight away. However, if we are looking at the teams previous performances, where especially CRUC1AL has had great performances, they should be able to manage their way through anyway. If Endpoint could surprise BIG in the best of one opener the road is set to win the group.

SKADE

  • Ivan “Rock1nG” Stratiev
  • Denislav “dennyslaw” Dimitrov
  • Kostadin “rafftu” Turbinov
  • Alex “Rainwaker” Petrov
  • Teodor “SPELLAN” Nikolov

SKADE has performed admirably in #HomeSweetHome thus far with one playoff showing and one close miss. They have wins against teams such as Gambit Youngsters and AGO, but with that said the challenge is much bigger this week. In all honesty it is really hard to see how SKADE is going to trump BIG and Endpoint, who have been strong in the tournament until this point. The newcomer Team Secret is definitely no joke either and the opening game between SKADE and them will decide a lot. Unfortunately for SKADE we believe they will end last in the group this week. That is the harsh reality of a group draw this tough.

Team Secret

  • Flatron "juanflatroo" Halimi
  • Filip "tudsoN" Tudev
  • Dionis "sinnopsyy" Budeci
  • Guy "anarkez" Trachtman
  • Martin "PERCY" Wessel

Since this team was created at the end of last year, they have been rising constantly and the improvements are vast. Lately the team has gathered impressive wins against teams such as Heretics and AGO, but there are quite a few deep dives in between. Consistency is not a word that describes Secret, yet. There is a big possibility this team will rise in to the top 20 of the world eventually, but they are not there yet, and in their first week of #HomeSweetHome they have a massive challenge. In all honesty a playoff spot looks really tough to reach, but we think Secret will fight until the end for it, but falling just short. To change that players like juanflatroo and anarkez need to improve their already great performances lately.
