Luminosity Gaming are a very strategy oriented team. They have a IGL in Fallen who believes in cracking the whip on his players while still giving some sort of freedom to them in their game style. However that strict control also is the reason sometimes for them being so predictable. That in addition with the fact that they do not always manage to win their aim battles results in LG being at a disadvantage with respect to Gamers2. Gamers2 are pretty much on par with the best firepower in CSGO. In terms of maps, LG are very good on Mirage, Dust2, Cobblestone. Inferno and Overpass would probably be like the second tier maps for Luminosity Gaming. Cache and Train are the least favored maps for Luminosity Gaming.
