SK and Optic are matched up against each other in the Group stage match of ESL One New york to be held on the 30th of September 2016 at 2000 CEST.
SK are the champions of the last two majors. They are the team to beat as we head into this tournament. This is one of the few big tournaments that we will be seeing SK in action. However that being said they have had problems in their online matches. As Fallen has said; the problem with the team lies in that they are trying too much. The natural gameplay will help them perform much better than trying so hard.
Optic defeated Cloud9 in order to qualify for ESL One New york. The Optic lineup is fairly new and while its a new roster it is definitely a roster that can challenge some top teams in the world. SK is sort of a local NA team right now with the constant league matches and online playoffs. Considering how they are the team to beat, every team will be targeting them.
The Prediction : 75%-25% in favor of SK
The Bet : Low on Optic, their % is just too low to bet on right now.
