GAMERS GALAXY Invitational Series Dubai 2022 Playoffs Predictions
GAMERS GALAXY Invitational Series Dubai 2022 Playoffs PredictionsThe hottest series in Dubai is in town with high-profile participants across the competition. From the International 10 (TI10) champions to DPC Regional Finals winners, the GAMERS GALAXY Invitational Series Dubai 2022 is on par with Valve-sponsored Majors.
Nigma Galaxy delivers exceptional performance
Nigma Galaxy and OG are no strangers in the Dota Pro Circuit scene. However, one defining difference is OG has become a formidable candidate despite featuring a relatively new line-up. Whereas Nigma, despite rocking the same roster that won TI7, has only gotten worse since then.
Nevertheless, Nigma does have its days at the GAMERS GALAXY Invitational Series Dubai 2022. For instance, Ivan Borislavov “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov proves that his dexterity and timing can become a deadly tool despite playing a lacklustre offlane hero, Dark Seer. It goes without saying that even old-school players have a few tricks up their sleeves.
After all, amidst the fast-paced meta and drafts, Dark Seer’s popularity fell in favor of better alternatives, Mars and Magnus. That said, Dark Seer’s role in the current meta is a hidden gem, for it counters ranged heroes, Templar Assassin, and Drow Ranger. Both carry options have become bread and butter for many decent teams to pull off an easy combo.
OG’s talent prospects
Whereas team OG’s gimmick these days has been around leveraging the young team’s quicker maneuver and typical fast-paced drafts. They quickly become a staple in DPC WEU Regional Finals after toppling down Team Secret. As the latest addition in the WEU scene, OG has at least proven itself to be a consistent team.
Nigma vs OG
When we look at a match-up between the two regional rivals, OG seemingly has more reliable tactics and playstyle. There’s no single dependency that OG is limited to, which makes them a difficult opponent to truly shut down. On the other hand, Nigma’s traditional playstyle and revolving themselves around Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi felt stale and situational.
Despite that, Nigma is still the bigger favorite at x1.50 versus OG at x2.47 odds. Now that’s probably because OG is playing with a stand-in replacing Mikhail “Misha” Agatov. Optimistically, the odds being against OG is a blessing in disguise for OG fans. Consider larger stakes at betting OG to win 2-0, which rakes x4.88 returns.
Neutral betting markets also have reasonable odds as well, such as betting on total maps to be under 2.5, which returns x1.80 rewards. Expecting Total Roshan Killings to be under 2.5 rakes x1.24 odds, but is plausible since OG ends matches relatively early.
BOOM Esports becomes a SEA sensation
The Southeast Asian powerhouse, BOOM Esports delivers once again, this time, debunking the myth about the SEA region being weaker than others. BOOM swept the floor against two WEU teams, OG and Team Secret, and Nigma Galaxy SEA too.
What’s impressive about BOOM is that they stick to the basics, picking midgame heroes that enable them to take early objectives. Sure, many compared BOOM’s uninteresting drafts over iconic masterminds, such as Clement “Puppey” Ivanov’s theory crafting. Well, look who’s in the upper bracket of GAMERS GALAXY Invitational Series Dubai 2022.
Tundra Esports tests the waters with Saksa
The latest update to Tundra Esports is the debut of Martin “Saksa” Sazdov, replacing veteran player, Adrian “Fata” Trinks. Frankly, Tundra’s decision to pick up Saksa doesn’t have any fault, but removing Fata raised quite the debate. Fata is an established captain and drafter in the competitive scene for over a decade, so fans feel that Tundra might not dish out impressive drafts anymore.
If anything, Saksa’s presence in Tundra gave Tundra more flexibility in terms of how the playmaking pos4 player can perform. Saksa’s Snapfire has been a frequent MVP in many games against Team Spirit and TeamSoloMid, as he elusively set up combo stuns.
BOOM Esports vs Tundra Esports
We have seen BOOM Esports stomp over two WEU powerhouses in the GAMERS GALAXY Invitational Series Dubai 2022. Not discounting their long-running winning spree since winning the DPC SEA Regional Finals as well. While BOOM’s success story is vastly contributed by every player in it, Erin Jasper “Yopaj” Ferrer’s performance as a mid-player has been phenomenal.
As such, the Dota 2 odds are in favor of BOOM at x1.48 versus Tundra at x2.53 returns. Staking more on BOOM, consider betting on BOOM to win 2-1, returning x3.18 odds. Tundra isn’t a shabby opponent, so chances are high for Tundra to snatch a match off. Picking BOOM for Match Most Kills and Match Most Towers rewards x1.53 returns, and x1.50 returns respectively.
Alternatively, if siding WEU’s candidate, Tundra Esports is your cup of tea, there are several multi-fold returns. Such as betting on Tundra to win 2-0, raking in a generous x5.13 reward.
While the top seeds in GAMERS GALAXY Invitational Series Dubai 2022 battle it out in Upper Bracket Playoffs, two other teams await for their lower bracket round’s opponents. Team Spirit and Secret are in the lower bracket eagerly awaiting their turn to give their opponents a run for their money.
