Cloud9 vs FORZE Preview and Predictions: BetBoom Playlist Urbanistic 2023

We’ve got another all-CIS clash in Cloud9 vs FORZE in the Grand Final of BetBoom Playlist Urbanistic

It might not be a big-ticket tournament, but BetBoom Playlist Urbanistic has a massive prize pool that’s heavier than that of even the much coveted Intel Extreme Masters Dallas. After many weeks of matches, we’re down to just two teams — the mighty, established Cloud9 and the rising, aspiring forZe. If you want to indulge in a bit of CSGO betting, here’s our preview along with some predictions.


It’s been a long week for Cloud9, and it’ll have been a long day when they play this series. In just the last week they played the final of ESL Pro League Season 17, won BLAST Premier Spring Showdown, reached the Upper Bracket Final of the IEM Dallas Europe Qualifiers, and made their way to the final of BetBoom Playlist Urbanistic. That is a crazy amount of CSGO, but as long as they’re not too fatigued they could still take the win.

Player To Watch



The little Russian team is fast crossing the threshold between being underdogs and regular contenders, and they’re doing so at breakneck speeds. forZe have improved tremendously in a very short time, and the fact that they made short work of two good teams in the Playoffs of this event to get to this point is testament to that. This could be the big payday that announces their arrival on the big stage.
