The last game day of DPC 2023: Upper Division Tour 1 will meet us with a high-profile match between Team Spirit and BB Team. The duel does not decide anything from the point of view of the tournament situation and will be a purely principled meeting, where the championship will be played at the event.
Both teams will approach him with perfect streak stats: 6-0. The difference is only in the number of cards taken.
Team Spirit during the tournament lost 4 maps and won 12. BB Team, in turn, won the same number of maps, but lost only 1.
The result of the match will show which team will be the strongest in the first round of DPC 2023: EEU Upper Division, and we will try to predict the name of this team.
BB Team Uniform
Let's start the review from the nominal first place. This is BB Team and in this match they will appear before us in the status of a favorite.
The bookmakers believe in the success of the BB Team. The chance of the “super team” winning is estimated by the odds around 1.5.
A fairly categorical figure, considering who will become an opponent for the BB Team. However, it is impossible to deny the fact of superiority in the table before the start of the match, and therefore you will have to agree.
The current position of the BB Team in the standings does not cause much surprise. The BB Team roster was assembled for this very purpose - victory in the region with further success in the majors.
BB Team Players
However, we should not ignore the fact that BB Team has not yet met with serious resistance within the framework of DPC 2023: EEU Upper Division. Spirit, perhaps, will be the first difficulty on the way to the title.
BB Team Performance
Before the start of the regular season, BB Team claimed the championship laurels. During the tournament, it became clear that the starting marks were given correctly.
The debut confrontation for the BB Team was the match against the former club of 4 players - Virtus.pro. The renewed “bears” failed to oppose anything to the newly assembled BB: the match ended with a score of 2-0.
Then BB played against HellRaisers. Solo, who had experience with BB participants, could not find the key to victory: another 2-0 for BB.
In the third game, BB met against Ramzes, with whom some of the members of the betting club managed to play during the time of Outsiders and VP, as well as SoNNeiKo, who headed BB last season. For gpk and the company, the series turned out to be the most difficult, but successful - 2-1 in their favor.
In the fourth series, BB played against One Move. The league outsiders managed to impose a fight only on the 2nd map, turning it into a 70-minute battle, but lost, eventually giving BB a third victory with a score of 2-0 and a fourth in the overall standings.
Before this match, BB met with NAVI. “Born to Win” drafted in the first map, and in the second one they flooded with a won pick – 2-0 for BB.
Then BB met with Nemiga Gaming. The worst team in the region lost 0-2, giving BB an easy pass to the Major.
Heroes BB Team
BB Teams have near-perfect stats with only one map lost, so virtually all of the heroes they pick didn't lose. And they chose the following: Death Prophet (6 matches, 100% wins), Hoodwink (5 matches, 100% wins), Treant Protector (4 matches, 100% wins), Clockwerk (4 matches, 100% wins), Sniper (3 match, 100% wins).
Only Tiny, DK and Rubick lost. One card out of three played.
Team Spirit Uniform
We continue the review of the match with the analytics of the form of Team Spirit. It's rare to see Spirit in underdog status, but that's the case in this matchup.
The bookmakers do not really believe in Spirit's victory. The chance of winning is estimated by a coefficient in the region of 2.3.
Perhaps the number is correct. Spirit play well, but still a little worse than their counterparts.
Despite the stable roster in relation to the same BB Team, Spirit looks worse in general. The new mid player continues the adaptation process.
Team Spirit Players
However, in recent games, Spirit look cheerful. You can see the very spirit of the “dragons”, which remained with the replacement of the midlaner. It remains the ability to join the game at the right time.
Team Spirit Performance
Team Spirit played within the first division of Eastern Europe. There they outperformed all their counterparts at regular intervals.
In the first round of the DPC 2021/2022 EEU - Division 1 Team Spirit took first place, to then take second place at the DPC EEU 2021/2022 Tour 2: Division 1: Playoff. In between draws, Spirit took 4th place at GAMERS GALAXY: Invitational Dubai 2022.
In the middle of the year, Spirit visited the first major of the season - ESL One Stockholm 2022. There, Team Spirit took 9-12th place, which did not quite synergize with regional tournaments.
In the third season of the DPC EEU 2021/2022 Tour 3: Division 1. The decline has already begun, but Spirit quickly returned to service: 2nd place at the Riyadh Masters 2022 and a victory at PGL Arlington Major 2022 made Spirit one of the main favorites of the upcoming The International 2022.
The tournament itself turned out to be a total disappointment for the Dragons. Last year's champions flew to the TOP-16.
Before the start of DPC 2023, Team Spirit played BB Xmas Show. At the BB Xmas Show, Team Spirit reached the grand final almost without any problems, but lost in the decisive confrontation. Lost in the fight, with a score of 2-3.
Team Spirit's first encounter at DPC 2023 was a match against NaVi. Despite the nominal and actual advantage, Spirit lost the first map without a chance, but in the end they managed to close the series with a score of 2-1.
Then Spirit played against One Move. What was supposed to end with an unconditional victory for Spirit dragged on into a full-fledged b3 with a hassle, but a victory for Spirit.
In the third series, Spirit played against Nemiga. Another passing opponent, but another bo3 series.
The fourth game against Darkside followed the old patterns. The match against Ramzes' team ended on the third map, in favor of TS.
In the fifth game Spirit met with HellRaisers and finally we saw those same Spirits. The team showed their spirit and without problems closed the series with a score of 2-0, leaving behind one of the main competitors for a ticket to Lima.
The passage to the Spirit Major was earned in the match against Virtus.pro. The Dragons outplayed their rivals on two maps without any problems.
Heroes Team Spirit
The most frequent guest of Team Spirit picks are Rubick, Pangolier and Tiny. Characters appeared in 8 games, while winning 62% of the time.
Centaur is also extremely successful (7 games, 100% win rate), Enchantress appeared in 6 matches and won 5 of them, Clockwerk was picked 6 times with a win rate of 66%.
History of personal confrontations
Previously, the teams did not have a chance to play with each other. The decisive match of the season will be the first face-to-face confrontation between teams with updated squads.
The outcome of the fight
In this match, I expect an equal game, which would be logical in the case of the two best teams in the region. Team Spirit impresses more, in whose victory I believe.
I understand that during the season they looked more faded, but at the end of the race they began to play as expected from them.
Outcome: victory for Team Spirit.
Team Spirit. 9th team in the world ranking. At TI, they managed to take only 13-16th place. The replacement was not long in coming and "TORONTOTOKYO" left the team. To replace him, they take "Larl" from BetBoom. At their last tournament of the past year, BetBoom Xmas Show took 2nd place, losing in the final to Gaimin Gladiators with a score of 2:3. At the first DPC of their region, they played 6 matches, all of which managed to win. I can’t say that the opponents didn’t have a chance, but in some important aspects, the spiritualists always turned out to be stronger.
Bet Boom is the 15th team in the world ranking. A lot of people have put great hopes on this line-up, and definitely not in vain. The team rolled through the first DPC, destroying all their rivals, losing only one Darkside map in 6 matches. So far, all expectations from them are justified.
In fact, this match does not solve anything. Both teams are one hundred percent going to the Major and it would seem that they shouldn't try too hard. But in terms of superiority in the CIS, he is fundamental. In addition, this is the Spirit's first game against Toronto. It is difficult to predict the outcome, but I liked the BB game more. I will bet on them, but I think we will have a full distance in the match.
I'm a bettor, I live only by this. I devote all my time to this. There are no more interests.
I have been running my business for quite a long time and have achieved some success in this. Believe me or not - everyone's business. But why not try? Maybe you like this life too!
