Coming to the Lower Bracket Round 1 of ESL Challenger League Season 43, an out-of-form Sangal take on French roster HEET in an eliminator that will see the loser go to the Relegation Stage of Season 43.
By the Books (A Historical Introduction to the Fixture)
Sangal and HEET have never faced each other on the server before. But, form is something that is not Sangal’s friend right now. The international roster is winless in their last seven best-of-3 series and could find themselves in real trouble if HEET manages to make it 8 on the 6th of December.
As much as there are Sangal fans wanting them to break their streak of best-of-3 losses, everything pans towards a HEET win on the 6th of December. In fact, HEET look strong enough to close it out in two maps itself and it would be intriguing to see whether Sangal are able to make it a fighting contest, with potential relegation looming.
Sangal star soulfly has been on fire for his team in the past few months and has also amassed the most points according to the 3-month average on FanClash. With the Turkish player averaging a return of 66 fantasy points, it is no surprise that he costs 9 credits for this match and is expected to be a strong pick for captaincy.
MVP Candidate (Writer’s Opinion)
When it comes to matches that matter, HEET will be hoping for bodyy to step up and show his class. The 25-year-old has gathered loads of experience and has been one of the best-performing players in recent times for HEET. The former G2 Esports star should be on everybody’s team and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he ends up being the star of the day in Sangal vs HEET.
The Credit Optimiser
Interestingly, if you want to make full use of the credits you have at your disposal, the experts suggest taking 3 Sangal players in your squad, with afro and bodyy the two obvious picks from HEET. kyuubii is a good pick while phzy and kory are capable enough to make up the numbers.
The Stacked Squad (Best Squad according to Fantasy points)
If you go by recent fantasy scores, soulfly and afro are sure picks for any user. Herein as well, the experts suggest taking 3 Sangal players, with phzy and kory again filling up the squad while JaCkz is recommended as the second pick from HEET instead of bodyy.
Since we are recommending a HEET win, it would be wise to go with 3 players from the French squad. Among the 5 HEET members, afro and bodyy are valuable additions to the fantasy squad and will easily slot into my FanClash team.
Taking soulfly in the team is a no-brainer as he has been the leading man for Sangal for a few months now. The second Sangal player in my team will be kyuubii. In order to make sure I have these players in the squad, I have to go with JaCkz as the third HEET player and a filler for the team.
My captain and vice-captain choices are afro and bodyy, both intriguingly from HEET.
In an ideal situation, the best multiplier options would be afro and soulfly, with the two players putting in a considerable shift in the recent past. These two players should feature in every team, with HEET star bodyy a guaranteed pick as well.
As far as the other players are concerned, JaCkz can really be a value-for-money addition to the team considering the fact that he costs just 6 credits for this match. phzy is a stable option from Sangal while kory also has nearly identical numbers
However, coming to the boosters, phzy is an able selection for the “I’ll watch you Die” booster, with the Swedish star averaging the least number of deaths in the past 3 months according to HLTV stats. soulfly and afro are both worth considering for the Frag Leader booster and it will be interesting to see what the users end up choosing.
