DraftKings CoD Core Plays and Cheat Sheet (CDL) – April 3, 2021
A wild series of events occurred during this week of the group with multiple teams getting swept and one team unexpectedly losing which may cause some uncertainty going forward. Scenarios for seeding have become even more crazier especially in Group B as teams continue to fight for the chance to not play in the lower bracket. There may not be as many sweeps this slate but you never know. Let’s break down possibilities for the teams facing off.
FLA Mutineers v.s. PAR Legion (-148 FLA) (3:00 PM EST)
To start off the slate we get a rematch of these two teams from their Major 1 matchup. FLA was able to win the series 3-1. Unfortunately, PAR is currently less efficient as a team now compared to the previous faceoff and in my opinion it’s due to the fact Fire ended up switching to the submachine gun role recently which has caused him to look quite uncomfortable in that role. If PAR decides to not go back to that previous setup I think they may end up having a tougher time winning this match. Fire also had a 1.30 K/D in that previous matchup but now has a 0.80 K/D during this stage. Aqua has been the go-to player for PAR at the moment and most consistent but will definitely need the assistance of his teammates especially his assault rifle duo at the moment Skrapz (1.17/1.01 K/D’s) to prevent the dominance of the opposing assault rifle main of FLA, Skyz (who has cooled off a bit from his previous tear) and his duo Owakening who was the most efficient in the previous matchup with a 1.13 K/D overall. In other words, whichever assault rifle duos that end up performing better in this game more than likely may help get their team the win since they have been doing the best for them at the moment (with the exception of Slacked of FLA who is the second most reliable player for his team right now).
MIN ROKKR v.s. SEA Surge (-168 MIN) (4:30 PM EST)
MIN has continued to show signs of promise since the acquisition of Standy and are currently on a two-game win streak since then. In addition, MIN was able to sweep SEA 3-0 in their previous matchup during Stage 1 with their older roster which does not bode well for SEA’s chances now that MIN has improved with their newer roster. Attach was dominant in that last series with a 1.50 K/D along with his teammate Accuracy who had a 1.38 K/D. Therefore, I’d expect Attach to do well again this time (1.02 K/D) especially with some of the load being relieved off him slaying on the submachine gun role now with Standy being his submachine gun duo at the moment (1.05 K/D). On the other hand, the assault rifle mains of SEA, Gunless and Octane did really well in the last matchup and are currently two of the three most efficient on the team right now (1.07/1.17 K/D’s). Gunless has been seen flexing his role and using submachine gun on certain maps so it will be interesting to see if he begins to use it more often this time to combat Attach/Standy.
NY Subliners v.s. TOR Ultra (-293 NYS) (6:00 PM EST)
Both these teams are currently on a win streak (NYSL- 3, TOR- 1), but TOR has been producing slightly better numbers compared to NYSL (1.02 v.s. 0.99 team overall K/D’s) which should cause this match to be a close one. Cammy has performed really well in TOR’s sweep against LON yesterday and I’d expect for him to continue contributing for his team along with rookie stand-out Insight continuing to hold his own (1.13 K/D and most on the team). The current records for both teams in respawn gametypes are really close (5-5 for TOR and 7-5 for NYSL), so if NYSL can start off strong their chances of winning are more likely especially when NYSL has the most reverse sweeps in the league after being down in matches. Moreover, NYSL’s efficiency has been really balanced right now but in order for them to win easier Mack has to perform better because he is the only one on the team right now under a 1.0 K/D. Clayster and Diamondcon have now become the most reliable players on their team and if they anchor well in their assault rifle main roles it should help Mack do better in his gun fights. Also, the odds say otherwise but I believe this match is more even based on statistics and can go either way.
