Red Reserve faces off against Team Reciprocity in the first week of the CWL Pro League.
Red Reserve comes into this matchup having somewhat difficult road at the qualifiers. At qualifiers Red Reserve went 4-2 in group play but that was not enough to get them into the Pro League just yet. In group play Red Reserve started 0-2 with losses against Evil Geniuses and UYU. Red Reserve the win four straight to get them into the playoffs. In the playoffs Red Reserve was able to go undefeated after losing their first matchup and grab a spot in the CWL Pro League. Red Reserve has a lineup of some of the top players coming out of the UK with the likes of Bance, Joee, and zer0 who are all top ten. Red Reserve has the roster to be competitive and I expect them to show that in this years Pro League.
Team Reciprocity comes into the CWL Pro League with an easier trip than Red Reserve had at qualifiers. Team Reciprocity also went 4-2 and were able to qualify without having to go into the playoffs. Team Reciprocity won their first three games without any competition and then stumbled. Reciprocity then lost two straight before giving Engima6 Group their first loss of the group play. By beating Enigma6 Group that put Team Reciprocity into the Pro League and ready to make a name for themselves. Team Reciprocity is a new team with players like Denz and Tommey who are coming from Fnatic but are skilled in their own right. I’m looking for Team Reciprocity to make their mark in this tournament but it will be difficult against Red Reserve.
In this matchup I like the skilled guys with more experience from the UK. We like Red Reserve -164
