NaVi vs Echo Fox ( Train and Dust2)
NaVi and Echo Fox are matched up against each other in the Group Stage E of the E League to be held on the 21st of June 2016 at 18:00 and 19:10 CEST
NaVi are one of the top teams in the Counter strike community. NaVi have been able to take down the top CSGO teams. NaVi relies heavily on Guardian as the main AWPér .There have been times when when NaVI have struggled from playing without Guardian or with a really out of form Guardian. NaVi however are definitely considered amongst the top 5 CSGO teams in the world right now. NaViś main maps include Dust2, Mirage, Overpass. They hate Cache and pretty much have a 100% ban rate for Cache. Nuke is a map that has been traditionally been a bad map for NaVi; however that was the previous version of Nuke. Given the fact that the current Nuke is quite different from the old one, we cannot be sure of how NaVi plays the map.
Echo Fox on the other hand have most of their results from the previous roster. This team has had very bad recent matches. However its been sometime after the roster change and the roster now includes some really good players in freakazoid, Shahzam and Sean Gares. The other two members, Roca and Ryx are also extremely talented players on an individual level. They have limited experience, however the presence of Sean Gares and Freakazoid should alleviate that a lot.
The odds for NaVi are way too high for a best of one in my opinion. The maps are Train and Dust2, and despite people believing that these are the best maps for Navi and hence it should be easy for NaVi ; a low and equal bet on Echo Fox makes sense considering the roster, odds and the best of one factor. NaVi also tends to take Dust2 matches really close against NA teams. A bit too close for comfort.
The Prediction : 75%-25% NaVi
The Bet : Low on Echo Fox
