The LOOT.BET Cup Playoffs are on, and Valiance, HellRaisers, Heroic and Sprout have already qualified for the Quarterfinals. The match for the day is Vega Squadron vs Tricked Esport. Vega Squadron are the event through a High Seed invitation, which means that they did not need to participate in the Group Matches to qualify for the Playoffs. All the High Seed teams directly qualify for the Playoffs. HellRaisers and Heroic were also invited as High Seeds, and ECS runner up mousesports will be making a bid for the Quarter Finals as well. Mousesports are possibly the most powerful team here and could well win this event. However, all the matches at this event are online matches, and we’ve often seen that online events are unpredictable.
Vega Squadron Vs Tricked Esport – Their stats in combat
Vega Squadron have played ninety online matches with their current lineup, and were able to win forty seven of them. This makes their online win rate fifty two percent. Their most recent important win was in EPICENTER where they defeated Natus Vincere in an epic best of three. Tricked Esport, on the other hand, have played just thirty six online matches with their current roster, and have won nineteen of them. They have a fifty three percent win rate in online matches. This will be the first encounter between these two teams.
Vega Squadron’s best maps
Vega Squadron have never played Cobblestone. They seem to consistently ban that map, and focus on other maps. This means Cobblestone is their weakest map, followed by Cache, with just three wins out of thirteen matches. However, their weaknesses end there, as they seem to be reasonably proficient in all the remaining maps. They have a fifty percent win rate in Train, fifty five percent in Nuke, and fifty nine percent in Mirage. Their top two maps are Overpass, with a sixty percent win rate, and Inferno, with a sixty three percent win rate.
Tricked Esports’ best maps
Tricked Esports have a massive advantage in Cobblestone, but they may not be able to use it, since Vega Squadron always ban Cobblestone with their first ban. They are also good in Train, with a seventy one percent win rate, in Nuke, with a sixty seven percent win rate, and in Mirage, with a sixty percent win rate. Their three weakest maps are Overpass, with a twenty percent win rate, Inferno with seventeen percent, and Cache with no wins at all.
Which team has the best chance of a win here?
The odds are running at 1.43 on Vega Squadron, and we advise you to put your stake on that team. They are much more experienced than Tricked Esports, and have won against teams like Natus Vincere and GODSENT recently. On the other hand, Tricked Esports seem quite unable to perform well against teams that are more proficient or experienced than themselves. If there’s a stable online connection, Vega Squadron have a very good chance of winning this battle.
