The salty runback!
I would have thought they would keep all QF matches on the same patch, as they have the tournament realm, then move to latest patch for the semis. I could be wrong though
I could see this going either way, I think nV will be slightly favoured as they now know their style a bit better, but I could easily see this being a 3-2 either way
I think nV has a solid chance of winning and shouldn't be caught off guard this time around. I think they can possibly pull off a very close 3-1 to get a swing at KDP in the SF.
Fighting for the honor of getting KDP in the semis. Kappa.
ikr? I think they'll win this one but the semis match could be brutal. Now if X6 win the match I predict a swift 3-0 by KDP. If nV wins we might get a 3-1 or 3-2 if they make it a real set.
Actually if X6 wins and KDP have hard time beating X6 on the semis, we can be pretty sure who will win this season Apex..
Sorry, Taimou. It's now X6's turn to represent underdog teams and for NV to go home.
3-2 X6. KDP with a surprise loss to X6 in the semi.
Mano wins APEX.
My money's on nV. They will be better prepared and more coordinated this time against X6.
Either team could take it to be honest but I think only X6 has a chance against KDP, EnVyUs' current style is very defensive and I think birdring and rascal will treat it as a playground. Gotta put pressure on them to win.
I totally agree that either one of these teams could come out with the win, but I'm not confident in either's chances against KDP, mostly because of how X6 was dispatched by AFB, twice now and that nV doesn't look like they can handle that style of play as you mentioned.
I do think nV has a slightly better chance, mostly because KDP's backline tends to be somewhat exposed so EFFECT might be able to do enough work to enable the rest of the squad before they get destroyed by Rascal and Birdring.
Lord knows I've been hella wrong before though.
No, AF.Blue is already through to the semifinals. The bracket will be flipped once it gets to semis, so winner of this plays KDP and winner of LWBlue vs L-H plays AF.Blue.
3-1 EnVyUs if they play like they did against Meta again (minus throwing rounds on torbjorn of course).
tbh the winner of this is pretty unlikely to grab a win against KDP but I think that nV can bounce back from their previous set against X6
So are the semis and finals after WC qualifications? Looking forward to KDP vs NV. Kappa.
Solid 3-0 from nV, even better than I expected. I thought this was how the first match was going to go but it's really good to see that they were able to adapt.
envy is starting to look like a team that could take this season
I think they look better than they previously have but they haven't faced any of the big teams yet. I'm not sure how they would have done vs any of the big teams at full power.
We get to find out how they fare against KDP and even though I want them to win I'd have to lean more towards Kongdoo coming out on top.
