06.24.20 CSGO Summit

Grim put on a hell of a show yesterday but Triumph sadly fell to MiBR yesterday. Between the stream sniping and sending death threats to opposing players, MiBR is a really dislikeable group of losers and hopefully we see Liquid knock them down hard today. We have a nice 4 game slate and some other options today so it should be fun to play whichever slate appeals to you. Premium notes will be in the discord if anybody is even awake at this point. Good luck, have fun, and game on. 

Draftkings’ scoring follows the chart shown below, with a focus on K/D and clutch plays. Rosters are set with a Captain position who receives 1.5x his points at 1.5x his salary, but beyond that it is positionless. This is important to understand because CS teams follow a composition of different roles such as IGL (In game leader), entry fragger, support, etc. With Draftkings making no distinction between players, it is left to you to decide which roles are most important within this scoring system and to take advantage of that. For several teams for example, their IGL is not often going to score highly as they may be less skilled at the game but are valuable in ways that Draftkings doesn’t record. With that in mind, we will jump into a quick look at the roles of key players, their key stats, and how their perceived performance should fare in accordance with their salary.

Fanduel Scoring

Deaths -1.5Deaths -1Rounds Lost -.5
Assists 1.5Assists 1Match Won 10
Headshots .3Headshots .2Team Sweep 10
Sweep Bonus 22.5Sweep Bonus 15

Fanduel has 6 slots for a captain, 4 standard players, and a team. The captain position does not affect a player’s salary like it does on Draftkings. This is particularly advantageous for when you have an inkling that a superstar will put up a large performance but you don’t want to limit your options elsewhere. The team slot will be a lot of fun for those situations where you like a team to win but don’t like the fantasy prospects of any particular players so you can still get some exposure. We figure most users will try to pick the cheapest winning team because a lot of the stats you get points for are hard to predict, but a winning team should definitely fare better.

Our top plays are designed to show the most playable options on each team, factoring in performance and price. The top 2 plays on each team will be in our player pool and the third tier top plays are people we will sprinkle in a bit along with the core group. All of the statistics shown are for the last 3 months to see who has been performing well recently while still keeping a significant sample size. 

Vitality(-588) V FATE(+376) (12:00 PM EST)

RpK6,00010.6471.10%0.88

This game more than any other looks like it should be over before it’s started. We all know how talented Vitality is and their opponent is one of the loser teams that slipped through the qualifying cracks. These guys underperform at times but this is a dream matchup in every way.

FATE’s only good map is Vitality’s auto-ban so that doesn’t bode well for them in this series. This is not a team to look at for really any reason as it shouldn’t be close but they have a few guys in solid recent from if you think ZywOo’s computer will break or something.

Movistar Riders(+143) V North(-189) (12:00 PM EST)

EasTor6,2000.970.6369.10%0.92

This team has been all over the place recently and is struggling to find any sort of consistency. They will have certainly reviewed the tapes from the last time they just played North and will be looking for some edge or understanding heading in here. LoWel has been playing decently recently and ALEX and mopoz are okay players in their own right but this just screams “AVOID” to us.

North recently swept these guys and will be looking to not let down here. A few players here have been in fantastic recent form and they should be able to carry them to a victory. They may not be the largest betting favorite on the slate, but this team is top heavy and we all love that for DFS.

TACO5,6000.950.5769.50%0.84

These guys are quickly making names for themselves as the most dislikeable team in the world due to their horrific behavior. Death threats, cheating, and in-game harassment is all a part of Brazilian culture at this point but these guys take it to an extreme. They have also lost 11 straight maps to Liquid, dating back to May of last year, so that’s encouraging. The team is a bit different with trk now but hopefully they are stomped here and can face punishment from Valve at some point. Their top guys can be in play as always but this should be a loss.

Liquid has not been playing as much as a lot of other teams and that rest should keep them well prepared for their opponents. EliGE has looked great recently and strong help from his supporting cast should help them put this series away. The map pool matches up pretty well and MiBR’s struggles should continue here.

Chaos is a mess and the past week has been more about years old match fixing and receiving death threats from crazies in Brazil than playing CS. They will probably keep this closer than expected and could upset but this is one of those teams where even when they win, they don’t score crazy well individually. Maybe target 1 or 2 guys at most in any scenario.

100T should win this series on paper but their awful recent form is making them hard to trust. Gratisfaction and jks have been playing okay recently and they really need to show their potential here to not let an easy series slip through their fingers. This is a team to ride or die with on the slate or just avoid.
