Cloud9 and Optic are matched up against each other in the IBP Invitational to be held on the 19th of March 2016 at 18:00 CET.
Cloud9 have slowly been improving on their favourite maps whilst widening their map pool. However that being said Cloud9 do not have many success stories under their belt here so try not to read too much into their positive results from their last 4-5 matches.
Last time Optic played, there was a slight controversy surrounding the team roster. Their star AWP’er Shahzam was rumored to be removed from the team. However nothing has come from that rumour just yet. Optic Gaming are very low in the ESL table and they do not, practically speaking, have a chance of qualifying for the team.
The Prediction : 65%-35% Cloud9
The Bet : Low on Cloud9
