Predicting the outcome of EG vs. PSG feels like a nigh impossible endeavor. Both teams are so darn volatile it doesn’t even make sense. It’ll be a game of inches, but only because they’re about as inconsistent as it gets.
On the one hand, their precarious nature has resulted in a much more entertaining state of affairs. On the other, it makes our lives an absolute nightmare.
Both EG and PSG have had humongous triumphs and absolutely crushing defeats. To their credit, they have evolved as the tournament progressed, but they’re still inherently volatile and downright impossible to fully (and objectively) assess.
One day they’ll trade blows with the very best teams out there — if not even win. And then, out of the blue, they’ll just implode beyond measure and fumble in the most mind-blowing of ways.
Evil Geniuses are better, but the gap between them and PSG Talon isn’t nearly as large or insurmountable as we initially believed. It all depends on the day and how well they manage to start things off — to say nothing of their versatile and often quite flawed drafting tendencies.
It’s a complete and utter toss-up.
EG vs. PSG — As Even As It Gets
These two teams are both fairly capable and inherently flawed. Their flaws aren’t always visible, but whenever they are pushed to their limits, these deficiencies become as clear as day. Evil Geniuses have, generally, been a bit more consistent, and their stellar win over T1 proves as much.
We don’t think they’ll accomplish much once everything is said and done, but they can definitely pack a punch and are not to be trifled with. Much of the same can be said for PSG Talon as well, although they seem to be an even bigger enigma, so we’d rather not make any sweeping statements until we get a bigger sample size to digest and go over.
In any case, Evil Geniuses are favored here for a very good reason, and while a win is by no means guaranteed, it is the most likely scenario.
