And the real test begins. Even if AFB got destroyed by LH they're a good team. Their opponents just new how to catch and deal with their dive in a extremely efficient and effective manner.
We get to see how KDU fairs and if they can get their revenge for getting sweeped last season!
Should be much closer imo, Uncia were in a swamp of awful play during groups and they aren't now. I think AFB should win but this is a new look for Uncia, trying to get back into being a solid tier 2 team in Korea.
KDU have looked pretty sick, but there is still potential for them to get rolled depending of which of their trial players they field. They got beaten pretty convincingly by MY today in Nexus Cup without DDing.
Interestingly enough KDU just lost to Miraculous Youngster in the Upper Bracket SF of the Nexus Cup. I can't translate that into strength relative to the Korean cast. MY looks like a decent team, finishing in the 5th-6th place of the Premier Series 2017 Spring tournament.
I feel like they might be able to take a map or two, but I wouldn't be too surprised to see a sweep.
oooo this one should be great to watch, even if it isn't close it'll give us a good idea of how the teams match up in Korea right now. I'll predict a 4-1 AFB but hey, anything could happen here.
AFB will 4-0 them. I think people are starting to act like AFB are a bad team just coz they lost against lunatic hai. Lunatic hai counters AFB's style of play thats why they lost. even taimou said the same thing. AFB will 4-0 them just like they did to x-6
LH used to play a slightly less aggressive style than the current AFB but I think they countered them because they adjusted that play style to pull back, catch the dive, kill the tanks, and kill everything else. More than anything they executed a strat to counter them and it worked very, very well. I think AFB didn't respond to it because they hadn't been properly challenged and they weren't used to playing from behind.
But yeah I agree that we may be selling AFB a bit short after just one game. KDU could end up surprising us (cause Overwatch) but I believe they might get two maps at the most, though I'm leaning more towards a 4-1 or maybe even a 4-0
Dang, KDU plays in this bo7 and then couple hours after play again in the nexus cup
All these great matches in Korea, but never an English stream. Well I guess I better learn korean in the next 3 hours.
Interesting that Kalios is in for DongHyun this match. It's early but their teamwork seems a bit off.
AF Blue is looking even stronger since APEX, at least in this match. I can't wait to watch AF Blue vs. LH or KDP.
They looked stronger in apex too tho? They 3-0ed every team till semi finals. They will lose against lunatuc hai coz their style is countered really hard by LH style. Afb vs Kdp will be something tho.
I'm confused, is donghyun off the team? Or are they rocking a 7 man roster now
AFB announced in Twitter that Donghyun will be taking a break. They said it is just due to accumulated fatigue and did not mention when he will be returning.
Happy to see Kalios finally getting a chance though. They looked a bit shaky on the first map but got it together pretty quick.
KDU did not seem so bad against AFB in control map, which seems to suggest that they have decent individual skills.
I think they need better strategy coaching though. They do not seem to know how to perform together to siege the objectives. Or maybe players are just confused because they are playing with different players every match.
This is a long list of players for one team. They really need to lock down their main starting lineup, so they can perform better together as a team.
