FlyQuest vs Team SoloMid
FlyQuest are the real deal and, frankly, we're kind of taken aback by that being the case. We always knew they'd come out swinging, but their games thus far have been tremendously impressive. They're clean, commanding, surprisingly cohesive, and have shown very few weaknesses in their first eight outings. Now sure, they, too, make mistakes from time to time (mistakes which range from negligible to downright inexcusable), but they all seem somewhat easy to fix -- they're manageable and are not at all the kind of issues which, say, Immortals and Dignitas are currently faced with.
Their 5W-3L record might not sound all that impressive, but it's actually quite alright and is made all the better once you factor in that they hold wins over Counter Logic Gaming (back when it mattered), Cloud9, and 100 Thieves. They're actually good and seem to be evolving at a very rapid pace. They're also tied for third and if they manage to best TSM -- which, in all fairness, they're all but guaranteed to do -- they'll not only further separate themselves from the rest of the pack but also solidify their spot as a top-tier team (and a shoo-in for the playoffs).
TSM, on the other hand, looked good against Cloud9. Well, as good as they could have given the circumstances. They made things competitive throughout the early stages of the game and then, once the going got rough, took a back seat and got demolished -- as was to be expected. Still, for a team with three substitutes and little to no synergy they did alright, perhaps even a bit better than we thought they would.
We expect a similar affair this time around as well. FlyQuest aren't on Cloud9's level (a somewhat justified assumption), but they're still a top-tier team and should be able to prove it with relative ease, too.
