Ascent.EU vs Se7en
The two Premiership finalists of last season will be brawling it out on Product and Sunshine, and with each map favouring a side, some very intense action is to be expected. Last season, Sunshine was taken easily by Se7en, while Product was the only map Ascent.EU was able to win in the Grand finals in a convincing 3-0 rout.
Se7en easily disposed of l'En Avant de Guingamp last week, dropping only a single round in the process. With kaidus returning to the Prem again this season, it will be interesting to see if Se7en can finally break free from their curse and win on Product.
Ascent.EU on the other hand encountered a surprising amount of resistance from MONGI MODE in the previous week. While they were able to walk away with all six points it was much harder than anticipated. Still, with credu on Sniper, the team looks primed and zoomed in to challenge for at least three points from this evening’s fixture.
L’En Avant de Guingamp vs THE THEORISTS
Week 1 was a tough introduction to Prem for EAG against reigning champions Se7en. While they showed good fighting spirit and competitive mettle, it takes more than belief to upset a team of Se7en’s calibre. And they will surely be eager to prove themselves against a more even opponent tonight.
THE THEORISTS’ first encounter with a French squad went fairly well. While the games were at times a little chaotic, they won Snakewater and Sunshine 6-2 and 3-1 respectively, and never going behind on either map. Tonight will be a test for them, facing players with Prem experience for the first time in a competitive fixture, and we’re psyched to see whether their teamplay, coordination and theorycrafting will prove to be in their favour against the newly-united Frenchies.
