Renegades and Optic are matched up against each other in the ESL Pro league Season 3 Match to be held on the 13th of March 2016 at 04:00 CET on the map of Inferno.
Renegades are an Australian team that has shifted base to NA. Their team consists of
Renegades’ best maps are Cache and Inferno and they are very comfortable on these maps. The match today is on Inferno. Based on Renegades past matches on the map they should perform well.
Renegades’ latest match saw them win two maps quite convincingly against Winterfox. They performed quite well in that match showcasing some exceptional gameplay and strats. Ustilo has been with the team for sometime now and they are now well practised and Renegades are looking strong.
Optic have been performing even better in their matches recently. They are on a huge win streak dominating some of the best NA teams such as Liquid and Cloud9. Optic is ex-Conquest. They were one of the strongest teams on Inferno, especially on the CT side. A lot of that has to do with Shahzam controlling B site and playing aggressively at times to gain information.
However according to this tweet by John Nissan it seems there is an internal conflict within Optic which could severely affect the results of this match.
shahzam has burned so many bridges, wonder where he will end up
