FLY vs CLG is actually a lot more interesting than it might seem at first glance; predictions for it will also be all over the place and that, in short, is about as weird as it gets. We’re just not used to seeing Counter Logic Gaming win. There’s really no other way to say it.
They’ve been a bottom-dweller for what feels like an eternity and even this most recent surge of theirs feels surreal — as if it were a twist from a different kind of reality or “timeline.”
The grunt of their success, however, came not through their stellar play but rather through their incredible drafting and overall read on the meta.
Simply put: Counter Logic Gaming are ahead of the curve. They have the most interesting pocket picks, are always one step ahead of their competition, and are playing without any fear whatsoever.
And so, frankly, the fact that they’re 3W-0L after the first week of play should really come as no surprise. Counter Logic Gaming have earned all the praise they’ve been getting but we’re still a bit reserved given their shoddy track record.
FLY vs CLG Predictions — More Competitive Than It Looks
FlyQuest, too, have been quite impressive, but they haven’t made as big a jump performance-wise as their forthcoming opponents. They’re still capable and fairly dangerous, but they don’t necessarily stand out in any which way.
That’s not a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination but it does mean we don’t have as much to talk about and dissect. They’re good and will be leaving some kind of a mark once everything is said and done.
The jury’s still out on CLG as well, but they have made waves in the most unexpected of fashions so a bit of credit simply needs to go their way. Their wins weren’t flukes either, but they’ve been so darn bad for so long that we cannot help but worry that this, too, is nothing but a surge that’ll diminish and dissolve in a week or two’s time.
Right now, though, they have an immense amount of momentum and if they keep doing their “thing” they’ll stand a much better chance at taking FlyQuest down than most folks expect. Will they keep the hype train alive? We’ll find out soon enough.
