Following their unexpected loss to MOUZ in the opening round of Group C, Heroic bounced back with a dominant win against ENCE, who the Danes swept 2-0 (16-13, 16-10) on Thursday. It was a solid performance from Heroic that would lead you to believe that Casper “cadiaN” Møller and co. have found traction, but considering how many upsets ESL Pro League Season 16 has produced so far, we would take Heroic’s success with a grain of salt.

HEET have yet to taste victory, and based on their recent showings, it’s hard to believe that will change anytime soon. They lost against ENCE (0-2) on Wednesday and were just as unconvincing against Astralis (0-2) on Wednesday. Results like that suggest that HEET have no chance of beating Heroic, and we have a hard time finding an argument against that.

Even though Heroic have looked a bit weak in some of their recent maps, this is still an elite-tier team going against HEET, who have yet to beat a top-10 roster this year.

Complexity enter round three of Group C with a perfect 2-0 record and a +12 map difference, with wins against Astralis (2-1) and HEET (2-0). Complexity needed 25 rounds (25-23) in the second map against Astralis to complete the reverse sweep, so it’s not like they are insanely good.

Nevertheless, Complexity are playing much better since the departure of Paytyn “junior” Johnson, so perhaps it’s time to start showing this squad some respect. Their next opponents, MOUZ are 1-1 with a clean victory against Heroic (2-0) and a 0-2 loss against Astralis on Wednesday.

The main thing to take away from those games is that MOUZ might not be ready to contest big trophies, but they are highly competitive and definitely a team to keep an eye on ahead of IEM Rio Major. But can they defeat Complexity?

MOUZ have been playing cleaner CS:GO than Complexity, but they don’t deserve to be $1.40 favourites. This is a huge price to pay, and it seems like it’s based more on the market’s distrust of Complexity than anything else. Complexity can win, or at the very least force a tight series.

ENCE and Astralis have been struggling this tournament, granted that’s relative to our expectations. ENCE have shown less, though, with a loss against Heroic (0-2) and a win against HEET (2-0), while Astralis lost to Complexity (1-2) but took down MOUZ (2-0).

Results-wise, Astralis have looked better, but it’s hard to make any firm conclusions following two rounds of play. ENCE are still trying to assimilate to playing without Lotan “Spinx” Giladi, whereas Astralis continue to show cracks, proving that roster changes are necessary if they ever want to return to their former glory.

As the latest CS:GO odds show, this match is a complete coin-flip, and we agree. Expect a close, three-map series.
