DraftKings CoD Core Plays and Cheat Sheet (CDL) – March 28, 2021
PAR Legion v.s. SEA Surge (3:00 PM EST)
This will be the first matchup for these teams but they do have one thing in common which is having a recent loss to DAL and looking to recover with a victory. However, it may help to know that SEA was almost able to defeat DAL but lost in the final round on the last map while PAR lost to DAL in a series 1-3. SEA also has a K/D advantage or 1.06 versus PAR’s 0.99. PAR has shown some struggle to assault rifle main players in previous matches so far which is a plus for Octane of SEA. Octane is currently one of the top assault rifle mains in the game with a 1.24 K/D but also will be facing off with Aqua of PAR with the same K/D which should make this duel a significant factor to help determine the winner of the series although the help of teammates matter too. PAR is a better search and destroy team and have yet to lose a map on that so if it comes down to the wire it may end up in favor of them. However, SEA is the better respawn team (4-2 vs PAR’s 1-5) which is the majority of the maps in a series which can cause SEA to go on a stronger start which can break down the composure of opposing teams.
DAL Empire v.s. MIN ROKKR (4:30 PM EST)
DAL the defending champions are the last remaining undefeated team in Group B and survived a very close win in their previous match against SEA. They now face the hottest team in the league right now in MIN after their recent acquisition of the submachine gun slayer Standy. This may end up being one of the closest matches on the slate and a tough test for Standy as he faces arguably the third and fourth best submachine gun slayers in the game (Huke, Shotzzy). Also, this will be a rematch for the teams since their previous matchup in Stage 1 which MIN won in a 3-2 series upset. Huke has not been playing his best game as of late (0.99 K/D) and will definitely need to turn it around to help make winning for his team easier. C9 has been improving (1.08 K/D) and contributing greatly as an anchor/assault rifle main for DAL which will make slaying for his submachine gun main teammates somewhat easier throughout maps. Accuracy of MIN is not too far from C6 in the K/D category (1.01 K/D) which will be big for MIN if Accuracy can give C6 a good fight. Although it will be tough to gauge the winner of this match MIN has not been dominating teams in the search and destroy gametype now like they used to in Stage 1 which was their backbone as they tried to improve on respawn gametypes. In other words, if Huke is able to get back to how he played previously and DAL can win the majority if not all the respawn game modes early it can be trouble for MIN.
Optic CHI v.s. FLA Mutineers (6:00 PM EST)
CHI had to unfortunately witness first hand how the new look MIN team was in their previous matchup and got surprisingly swept by them 3-0. On the other hand, FLA was the last team to beat MIN which resulted in a 3-0 sweep before they dropped Majormaniak for Standy. CHI should definitely come back stronger in this matchup but they have to play well in search and destroy because FLA is improving in respawn gametypes (3-2) compared to CHI’s (2-2) and also the better search and destroy team right now. Search and destroy has still been the struggle for CHI and biggest obstacle for them turn it up to the next level as they are currently winless in the game mode to start the new group. Lucikly for CHI, one of the best players in search and destroy in Owakening is starting off slower for FLA this group and has a current 0.89 K/D. Moreover, this matchup may come down to how well the assault rifle mains play (Owakening/Skyz vs Dashy/FormaL). Dashy has a good opportunity now to bounce back from his disappointing games last series while Owakening is on his slow start. However, Skyz is the most efficient right now out of all four players with a 1.11 K/D which is third best for assault rifle mains in the league right now.
