  • Rooster

Renegades vs Rooster


In Oceania, the obvious favourites Renegades are sporting a mightily impressive 100% win rate since the online era of Counter Strike started due to the pandemic. Over the oceans towards Asia, and TYLOO will easily be favourites, with a hot 80% win rate in the past 3 months of online tournaments. But during this odd time of online events, things can change in a snap, so perhaps an underdog can rise up.

In Europe however, the fields are much more even between teams, with nearly all of them winning the unexpected but also dropping the obvious at alarming rates in the past few events.

Update as of 23/11/2020:

Due to COVID restrictions, Evil Geniuses will be replaced by Cloud9. The group information remains accurate, with the only amendment being Cloud9 in the Europe Group A bracket. This is due to travel restrictions in place on the Evil Geniuses roster due to pandemic limitations.
