07.06.20 CSGO DK Mythic

Thank you all for being cool with our holiday weekend break. We were happy to help in the Discord to lower the work on our end but we are back at it with a grotesque slate. Draftkings is apparently cool with stooping as low as the Mythic “streamer league” so this should be interesting! Premium notes will be in the discord because of how weird this is. The best advice is to not play it but we both know that we are all going to play it anyways… 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.

Davey6,0000.990.6466.90%0.94
Polen5,2000.970.8365.60%0.97

This is the well-known stream team of CS as these guys (and girl) mostly focus on their streaming careers rather than their playing careers. Still, they are talented players and are playing a team that I can’t say the same about, so they should be able to take this series. PA did beat Mythic a few weeks ago, but Mythic had c0m in for DAVEY which is a pretty big downgrade, so Mythic should be able to bounce back here. fl0m and keiti are the most consistent players here while the other 3 are all capable of big performances while also capable of big duds. zNf is the most likely of those 3 to play well, but is so expensive that it’s hard to go there. Polen is worth a punt if you need salary relief, but he is the most inconsistent player here and one great game could be offset by a bad one in a best of 3.

Lacore6,4000.890.6168.30%0.71
Powerzz5,6000.860.5865.80%0.76

This is an interesting team because, as of writing this article, they do not currently have a 5th player. RenZ has been begging on Twitter for someone to play with them and I have yet to see a confirmation that they actually have a 5th. Maybe cxzi will come back, which would make him a great play as he was playing really well for this team, so if he gets added to the slate before lock, you can plug him in. If not, I have no idea what’s going to happen. This team may have to play 4v5 and in that case, it’s hard to look here. RenZ and Magowi are solid while the other 2 guys really aren’t. Lacore is somewhat capable of playing well, but not enough to put money on him.

Oceanus(+181) V New England Whalers(-244) (9:00 PM EST)

penny7,4001.20.8072.90%1.2

Hunter5,8000.980.6272.00%0.85
zander4,8000.910.5966.90%0.89

Oceanus is in an interesting spot as they have to bring in wippie to replace Mada who had a family emergency. Wippie has played very well as of late and has even performed well against the likes of MiBR, FURIA, Gen.G, and Complexity, so he should be the top target from this lineup. Penny and tweiss are next up, while the other 2 aren’t really playable today. These guys are actually priced in order of their talent which is rare, so try to play the best one you can afford.

ben13375,4001.050.6871.30%1

Everyone’s favorite player is back and he is pretty cheap for the way he’s been playing. Boobie makes for a great salary relief option as he has been NEW’s 2nd best player behind their “star” PwnAlone. PwnAlone has the best chance of being the top scorer today and makes for a great Captain pick, while Boobie is a nice complimentary option. Rampage is usually the next guy up while the other 2 tend to lag behind. NEW should be able to sweep here, so getting a couple of their players might not be a bad idea today.
