Kick and Method are matched up against each other in the Operation Kinguin #2 cup to be played on the 15th of February 2016 at 18:00 CET.
Kick had a very good match against LDLC.White. They won the series 2-0 comfortably winning the first map at 16-7 followed by a crushing 16-5 win on the second map. Considering LDLC.White is a really good team who can upset some of the tier one teams on their best days, that is a very impressive result. Kick consists of Portuguese players who are pretty unknown but who have been racking up the results. They have had wins over OnlineBots, RCTIC, LDLC.White. They did lose two matches to Mixcat, but considering the skill gap difference between the teams that was probably expected.
Method have not been in the greatest of forms recently. They are in a slump and manage wins only against very weak teams such as QuietPlease. Their recent matches are wins over Anceint, Efrag, Cloud9 etc. They did put up a decent fight on LAN against Cloud9. But that was with a pinch of salt as they had two stand-in’s for the LAN event. Method as a team is definitely looking down and out right now. Their performance online before the LAN tournament was pretty shaky and it is expected to continue today too.
The Prediction : 63%-37% Kick
The Bet : Low to medium on Kick
Risk : Low
