Preview of Group B in week 6 of #HomeSweetHome

#HomeSweetHome Week 6: Group B Preview

#HomeSweetHome is back with its sixth week of play and even if the tournament has a few new teams entering the battle, group B only consists of veteran teams. Complexity Gaming makes their comeback and as a two time champion they are favoured to go deep once again. Apeks, forZe and SKADE has all participated before, but they are looking to improve on their previous results. The four will fight it out for the two spot to the playoffs and a chance at the total of $40,000 that gets awarded weekly. If you want to read more about #HomeSweetHome and the tournament as a whole head over to our event page!

Teams 

Apeks

  • Ole Kristian "Marcelious" Langan
  • Sander Nordeide "Grus" Iversen
  • Kristian "akEz" Kornbakk
  • Erik "truth" Hansen Dyrnes
  • Pål "Polly" Kammen (stand-in)

Apeks has participated twice in #HomeSweetHome and even if they reached the playoffs once, the results have been underwhelming. The story has been the same in BLAST Rising where the Norwegians ended last after six straight losses. Since the departure of Haakon “Radifaction” Tholo the team has had a tough time and it’s still unclear how the lineup will look for this weeks #HomeSweetHome and it’s possible their coach, Polly, will play for them again. At this moment it’s hard to find many positives around Apeks, but the fact that they have been drawn in the same group as forZe and SKADE might give them a possibility, as both teams are underperforming right now. The opening game against forZe might become the deciding factor and we do give Apeks a fair chance to win that one.

Complexity Gaming

  • Valentin "poizon" Vasilev
  • Owen "oBo" Schlatter
  • Benjamin "blameF" Bremer
  • Will "RUSH" Wierzba
  • Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke

Complexity has a clean record in #HomeSweetHome as they have won both times they have participated. The likes of k0nfig, blameF and poizon have all had excellent performances this far and the team itself has competed in other tournaments such as ESL One: Road to Rio and lately DreamHack Masters Spring, where they face world class opposition on a daily basis. Complexity is far and beyond one of the best teams in #HomeSweetHome and as such the likelihood of them completing the triple is by no means far fetched. Complexity has in the past not made their way through #HomeSweetHome easy, as they have dropped the opening match both times, but we trust them to make it easier on themselves this time around. A group win and the third title is in the hands of this explosive team who is on another level than almost any team in the tournament.

forZe

  • Dmitrii "facecrack" Alekseev
  • Andrei "Jerry" Mekhriakov
  • Almaz "almazer" Asadullin
  • Bogdan "xsepower" Chernikov
  • Evgenii "FL1T" Lebedev

It’s close to a mystery how players like FL1T, xsepower and facecrack can’t get this team to work better. forZe has had a tough behind them with a big drop in form, but last weeks #HomeSweetHome was at least a step forward as the Russians reached the quarterfinal, but lost closely to the rivals in Team Spirit. A repeat of something similar should be the most realistic scenario this week as forZe on paper should edge out Apeks and SKADE for a playoff spot. The team does however wield a lot of potential and on their best day they could challenge anybody, especially when the talent FL1T is on fire. We once again believe in forZe to be better than the bottom half teams in #HomeSweetHome, but in all honesty nothing is a guarantee with forZe, who can be really hit or miss. 

SKADE

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

The Bulgarians in SKADE has participated in all five weeks of #HomeSweetHome this far and only reached the playoffs once. With that said, they have still managed to pick up wins here and there, while showing some decent skill. Dennyslaw and Rainwaker have been the players to make it possible in the past and if SKADE wants to have any chance to move on from this group they have to step up even further. The group draw is still tough for SKADE and it looks like another 3rd or 4th placing is heading their way.
