Overwatch Contenders Week 3 » Predictions for this weekend
This weekend we are being treated to exciting matchups with teams hungry for the top prize, and are ready to show the overwatch world what they’re made of.
On Saturday, 8 teams are scheduled to face off
First up we have Team CC going against Flag Gaming.
Both are based out of China and are looking to make noise on their road to OWL. Their match begins at 3 am EST time. These two teams met in the past, having faced one another in the LanStory Cup 2018 – Guangzhou Online Qualifier. Both teams made it to the playoffs, but it was Team CC who came out on top with a 3-2 victory.I don’t predict much of a difference in the outcome this time around. Though not far behind in career earnings, Flag Gaming doesn’t have the amount of competitive experience that Team CC has, so I’ll give this match to Team CC.
For the next match at 5 am EST, we have T1w facing off against LGD.
Things seem a little bit shaky for LGD, as they saw the departure of four team members within the last two months. However, this team has been around the block for nearly three years and has faced far greater adversity in the past. T1w, on the other hand, is barely a year old but is an absolute juggernaut. Their roster is arguably the most balanced that we’ll see this weekend, and they have placed no lower than 4th in every tournament they’ve participated in thus far. This will definitely be a must watch. I predict T1w will come out as victors.
Next, up for our 4 pm match we have LFTOWL taking on XTEN.
LFTOWL is being lead by the likes of murizzz, leviataN, & pizzalover. All accomplished and experienced players on their own right. Xten is a relatively new team in the scene, but their team members have been seen around the competitive scene for some time now. Something tells me they will be bringing a ton of noise. Man, do I enjoy a good Cinderella story.
Rounding up Saturday, at 6 pm EST we have Caverna e-Sports facing off against Up Gaming.
Caverna hasn’t had much eye-popping success since their inception in 2017, with their best being two-second place finishes in a couple minors. However, they’re looking to change that this season.
I’m biased as all heck, but I appreciate good support play. A good support player is like putting a brick wall in the middle of a nascar track; if you cannot find a way around it, you will crash and burn. I believe that Th1ago, though not a JJONAK or Shaz, will be a deciding factor in who advances from this match.
