These two legendary teams will battle it out in the part of ECS Season 6 Europe. Both of the teams have been in a slump lately, some more than others. Both Mousesports and Fnatic have brought in fresh faces to their roster. STYKO replaced Snax in German squad, while twist and brollan replaced flusha and dennis in Fnatic.
Ever since Mousesports added Snax to their roster, they had a very hard time, even versus average teams. STYKO was a support player for the team, he did not mind dying in order for his team to win the round. However, Snax was not that type of a player, and he was not able to adapt to it, so they reversed the decision and brought back STYKO.
German roster prefers playing more strategic, but they tend to drain the clock a lot lately and sometimes it can cost them the round. Their main player is definitely Oskar, who is pretty bad lately. He is definitely out of form, but there are some signs of improvement. Mousesports is a very structured team, they have a plan for every situation, and this is where they have the edge over Fnatic.
There is not much to say about Fnatic. They are a legendary team with some of the best Swedish players. However, they as well have been in a slump lately. Out of their last 5 matches, they have won only once, versus team BiG, in overtime. They shuffled a lot lately, brollan and twist have been brought in to the squad not even two weeks ago, and that may pose a problem for the Swedish roster. To be honest, they have big shoes to fill. Flusha and dennis have been outstanding for Fnatic, but they wanted something new in their career.
These two teams faced each other 6 times. One of the matches went to overtime, where Mousesports edged out the victory on Train. In total, Mousesports won a total of 4 times, while Fnatic has 2 victories against Mousesports to their name. As we can see from their past results, there are maps that Mousesports can easily beat Fnatic on and vice versa.
For instance, they played Mirage 2 times so far, Fnatic got beaten on the map twice, they were even demolished once, 16-3. On the other hand, Fnatic has a very strong Inferno, as they were able to beat German roster 2 times there. However, both of the games were thrillers, 16-13, and 16-12. They also played Train twice, and both of these matches were nail-biters, 16-14, and 19-16.
Both of the teams are not in such a good form lately, but, I would give a slight edge to Mousesports. Roster changes happened for both of the teams, but I do not think that Mousesports will be affected by their switch, because STYKO was their former player. On the other hand, Fnatic never really played in this line-up, and they are still trying to find their footing. I believe that Mousesports is a better team, especially on Dust 2, and I believe they will prevail.
