DraftKings CoD Core Plays and Cheat Sheet (CDL) – March 27, 2021
Now that new players have made their debuts teams will start to recognize who really deserves to be at the top and the rookies so far on their new teams have done really well with the exception of one. Powerhouse teams have been upset and will also look to recover from their losses. That being said let’s go over the slate today and the possible outcomes.
NY Subliners v.s. LON Royal Ravens (3:00 PM EST)
Both teams are currently on a two-game winning streak but sadly one of those streaks will end. The new look LON squad has been improving a lot more and only lost one map in their last two series. Surprisingly, both new additions to the team have been performing the best for LON and will have to continue proving their worth to secure their spots for the long term. These two additions and most efficient on the team are PaulEhx (1.15 K/D) who is a main assault rifle player and Zed (1.17 K/D) who is a main submachine gun player. On the other hand, NYSL has been grinding through their wins and feel like they deserve to be acknowledged as one of the best teams in the league. However, the team overall K/D is just under 1 (0.99) and will need to be better in order for them to continue succeeding. Mack has been the one falling behind slightly and has to turn his game around consistently in order for the team to take it to the next level in my opinion. Mack currently has a 0.89, but the rest of his teammates have been performing well enough for them to win with Asim leading the way with a 1.04 K/D. Unfortunately for NYSL, LON has been performing better overall in every gametype (6-1) versus NYSL’s (7-6) which may just be the edge LON needs to win.
ATL Faze v.s. LA Thieves (4:30 PM EST)
Everyone in the league knows that ATL is the team to beat right now and they currently have a team overall K/D of 1.27. ATL should be able to defeat LA today with not too much trouble especially when the team LA just lost to a team that was dominated by ATL. LA also struggled against NYSL’s main submachine gun player Asim which makes it even worse for their chances because ATL has arguably the two best submachine gun players in the game in aBeZy (1.04 K/D) and Simp (1.19 K/D). LA’s best chances rely mostly on Slasher and Kenny who are the two most efficient players on the team right now with 0.98 and 0.96 K/D’s. Venom did not have the best debut but has a chance to turn it around but as a main submachine gun player this will be a true test against the best two in the game currently. LA’s efficiency also dropped slightly from a 0.93 K/D with Temp to a 0.91 K/D overall after replacing him with Venom.
TOR Ultra v.s. LA Guerrillas (6:00 PM EST)
TOR has had a bad break and currently on a two-game losing streak but so is their opponent LAG, therefore one team will be getting their first win today of the second group stage. The recent acquisition of Insight for TOR has been well for him but the rest of the team has not been doing as well. Insight currently has a 1.04 K/D while his teammates are all under 1 KD as of now. Unfortunately, LAG has yet to win a respawn gametype which is the majority of game modes in a series, but they have one search & destroy win under their belt so far. However, LAG as a team has a K/D of 0.95 which is slightly more than TOR’s 0.93. TOR really needs Bance to step it up in order for them to start winning again in my opinion and the fact they are struggling even more now after dropping Methodz is starting to make me believe Methodz was not the problem to begin with. For LAG, Vivid has been the best player and most consistent with a K/D of 1.11 while his teammates are also underneath 1 K/D so I’d expect for him to continue leading the way. Although both teams have been struggling this may end up being one of the closer games on the slate and I believe the loser may end up needing to reevaluate their roster and make a change in order to improve going forward.
