Optic and Cloud9 are matched up against each other in the Group stage of ESL Pro League Season 4 to be held on the 22nd of August 2016 at 0500 CEST
The map that will be played in this ESL Pro League match is Cache. While Train definitely holds a clear advantage for Cloud9, as it is one of their better maps; Cache is one of the most common maps in NA. Optic have shown splendid resilience in their recent Cache matches. Cache being a very open map, the team prefers to take several aim duels. The team’s raw firepower is also quite good and hence they can perform much better on open maps such as Dust2 and Cache than other strategic bsed maps such as Train, Overpass etc.
Cloud9 were one of the best teams on Cache in the world for quite sometime. However that being said; they have had several close matches against some of the better NA teams. The Cloud9 roster has had problems in terms of their consistency issues.
The Prediction : 55%-45% Optic
The Bet : Low on Optic
