MIBR with brutal opener for new lineup versus Astralis
After making a massive overhaul to their lineup, MIBR have a tall order as they are set to debut versus Astralis for Group C play at the BLAST Premier: Fall 2020 Regular Season.
The only remaining members from the previous squad are kNg and trk, with the former being both the in-game leader and primary AWPer of this squad.
LUCAS1 has returned to MIBR, with leo_drk and v$m rounding out the five man lineup while legendary player cogu picks up the manager and head coach duties.
This is quite the shift away from the old guard of FalleN, TACO, and fer, with many questions as to how this squad will function.
One would imagine a loose style with emphasis on the likes of kNg and LUCAS1 is the way to go, but going against Astralis in their debut match is quite the difficult entry.
On the side of Astralis they took a surprising loss to Heroic to finish their time at the DreamHack Open Fall 2020 in third place.
Es3tag is off to Cloud9 with Xyp9x back in the lineup, meaning the historic five man roster is back in place for Astralis.
One would imagine synergy will not be an issue for this squad despite the rotation of players that have come in and out of this organization as of late, with the idea still being that dev1ce, dupreeh, and Magisk are the primary carries of this squad.
Anything short of a clean victory here would be a shocker for this squad.
MIBR are 9/1 to win the match-up, with Astralis 1/33.
