Astralis and NRG are matched up against each other in the Group stage of the Eleague tournament Group C to be held on the 7rd of June 2016 at 12:15 EDT
Astralis will be playing without Karrigan for them at E league Group C. Keep in mind that they have been practising a lot with the knowledge that Karrigan will be playing in the team for sure. That puts them in a position of playing with zonic instead of Karrigan. While Karrigan is not the strongest player in the team, his presence and the fact that he makes the mid game decisions does have an impact on their gameplay. All this being said, Astralis are for sure the better team coming into this competition. They have a superior skill gap and better experience than their NA counterparts.
NRGś roster includes tabsen, Fugly, PTR, Gob B & Legija. This group of players has not had the success in their recent matches that they would have hoped for. NRG;s latest results have been a lot more Losses than wins than what they would have hoped for.
NRG Recent Matches –
Gob B himself admitted on social media that there is a considerable skill difference between the teams and they will need all the support that they can get. The team is still building itself around the EU core and their performance has to be on top level in order to stand a chance. OFcorse with the reduced fragging power of Astralis and with the induction of Zonic ( Who has not been the most active Danish player ) this is probably their best chance
The Prediction : 80%-20% Astralis.
The Bet : Medium on Astralis.
