NIP and Hellraisers are matched up against each other in the Group stage matches of SL I league Season 2 Finals to be held on the 7th of September 2016 at 1000 CEST.
NIP are amongst the top five teams in the world. The recent Valve update not to have a 6th player communicating with the team definitely has hurt the Swedes a lot. Their gameplay relies on Threat being able to guide them properly. This along with the insane aim of players such as Get_right, F0rest helped the team to attain a top five position. One thing to remember is that Maikelele will be playing in NIP during StarSeries. Maikelele last played for NIP during January 2015 and has been playing in Faze since then. He has definitely improved in terms of experience and in his Clutch capabilities.
Hellraisers on the other hand have lost a lot of sheen from their better rosters. The current Hellraisers roster lacks the knack necessary to improve their gameplay and win against a formidable team such as NIP. Hellraisers prefer to play on a select few maps such as Cache, Mirage and Train. The team has been practising Train with a vengeance and hopes to reap the benefits off it.
The Prediction : 78%-22% NIP
The Bet : High NIP
