Predictions for ORD vs. EG will surely lean towards the North American champions and, well, it’s easy to understand why — there’s quite a large gap between these two teams and there’s very little (if anything) ORDER can do about it.
For a brief moment in time, it seemed as though they were destined to pull off an upset and totally throw a wrench in EG’s plans. Fortunately for the North American representatives, they were able to not only weather the storm but bounce back in the grandest of fashions.
EG were in dire need of a win and they knew it, too. They needed to make a statement after losing both of their games to G2 Esports. And, well, they certainly succeeded: EG made quick work of their Oceanic adversaries. They made few mistakes and were able to impose their will and playstyle right from the very get-go.
And what a stark contrast it was compared to their games against the LEC champions. They were always on the offensive, looking to make a play and snowball their way to victory. It was the EG we all thought would show up, which tells us one very important thing: they are a great team and are most capable, but they’re just not great enough to compete with the likes of G2 Esports.
ORDER, on the other hand, while certainly feisty and capable, are still a cut below their Western peers, as evidenced clearly by the game below.
ORD vs. EG Predictions | More of the Same
EG’s first win over ORDER was neither a fluke nor a stroke of luck. They were the better team, and they were better and more superior across the board, both on an individual level but also as a unit.
Betting on Evil Geniuses, therefore, is the only logical choice; ORDER will surely come out with an entirely different draft, but that alone cannot make that big of a difference. EG are better in every which way and are bound to prove it yet again.
