These two teams are presented as being of roughly equal strength but when you analyze them carefully, you immediately see that Alliance’s roster is actually stronger than Nigma’s. First of all, Nigma is missing its most important player, KuroKy, who also happens to be the captain of the team. He has been temporarily replaced by the team’s coach, rmN-, who isn’t even close to Kuro in his ability to compete at the highest level and lead his teammates to success. Nevertheless, Nigma still managed to beat FlyToMoon and OG in this tournament. But arguably, both of these teams had severe issues and could not compete at their full potential. Just consider the fact that OG lost SumaiL before the event. Right now, Alliance has some of the best players in the world in its roster: s4, Nikobaby, LIMMP, and fng. So far, they defeated NiP and Na’Vi in this tournament.
