It’s a high stakes match between fnatic vs MIBR at the IEM Katowice 2023 Play-ins, with the winner of this Lower Bracket matchup qualifying for IEM Katowice 2023. Again, the two teams have never met each other and that only makes this fixture an even more anticipated one.
MVP Candidate (Points)
MIBR’s insani is your pick of the pie according to average fantasy points scored over the last 3 months on FanClash. The youngster had an insane showing against Grayhound and MIBR will be relying on him to deliver the goods once again, this time against a storied organisation like fnatic.
MVP Candidate (Opinion)
While MIBR Academy graduates insani and brnz4n lit up the csgo servers against Grayhound, exit performed ably and will once again be called up to take up a big load of the work when it comes to facing fnatic. Boasting one of the best Kill/Death Ratios among the 10 players that will be playing, MIBR will be pinning their hopes on their 26-year-old star firing on all cylinders.
The Credit Optimiser (Most Economically Efficient Squad)
According to the FanClash expert opinion, taking 3 MIBR players is the way to go if you want to utilise your credits optimally. FASHR and roeJ are the choices from Fnatic while exit and HEN1 is joined by Grayhound-killer brnz4n. Having no mezii is a bit of a risk but this is a power-packed lineup that will come in handy if MIBR end up winning the series.
The Stacked Squad (Best Squad according to Fantasy points)
If we go by FanClash fantasy points, the advice is to go with 3 fnatic players, with FASHR and roeJ from the economically efficient squad being joined by star player mezii. HEN1 makes way for mezii while brnz4n is replaced by insani in the squad as exit keeps his place. This is an interesting lineup that would work well if fnatic end up dominating the match.
Writer’s Squad and Summary
As far as my squad is concerned, I have gone with HEN1, exit and brnz4n from MIBR, thus expecting the Brazilians to power over fnatic. From fnatic, I have chosen to go for mezii, with FASHR filling up the squad.
Other notable considerations are insani from MIBR and the likes of nicodooz and roeJ from fnatic. This will help you make multiple teams with different combinations keeping these options in mind.
Coming to captain and vice-captain, exit and HEN1 are my respective picks for the same. You can also go for mezii as a worthy option for one of the two multipliers.
Talking about boosters, brnz4n will be a good option for the Procession Starter booster while HEN1 can be put on the I’ll watch you die booster. You can also put exit on the Frag Leader booster but I have gone for the former two.
