Team Spirit: Needs to Improve
Team Spirit failed to make it to the top of the playoffs for The International 11. The team drew seven times, managed to win once, and lost one match. The result leaves much to be desired. Even with weaker opponents, the Dragons played inconsistently. Team Spirit performed very well on one map and poorly on the second. The game is passive, the team does not respond to ganking and just continues to farm. Of course, in some cases, the experience of the team is enough to turn the game around, to win an important fight on the skill, but the more serious the opponent, the fewer these chances. Tundra Esports showed that perfectly. True, Team Spirit should make the first round of the playoffs. After all, BOOM Esports is noticeably inferior to the Russian squad, and the group stage showed that the team from Southeast Asia is not in the best shape.
BOOM Esports: the Last Match?
BOOM Esports could hardly make it to the playoffs of The International 11. The team had only one win in the group stage and had to compete in a replay for a slot in the lower playoffs. Yes, there were no problems in the replay. BOOM Esports won both matches very convincingly, but that's the only bright spot in this tournament. In addition, we should not forget that the team from Southeast Asia met with the weakest opponents in Group A. In the playoffs, the level of competition will increase significantly, which will negatively affect the team's possibilities. BOOM Esports has the experience of beating Team Spirit, but that game took place at a commercial tournament, and the Russian team did not need that. In the playoffs of the main tournament of the year, everything will change, and Team Spirit will be able to show a stronger game. Bo1 will not affect the outcome. Because of that, BOOM Esports will not have any advantage.
Expert Betting Tips
Team Spirit will start their way into the playoffs of The International 11 from the bottom of the net. The Russian team was not the best in the group stage, but the first round should go through without any problems. Especially considering the poor form of BOOM Esports.
