Disguised vs TSM Preview – VCL NA Mid-Season Face Off

Disguised and TSM face each other again to get out of the Mid-Season Face Off’s lower bracket.

It hasn’t been long since these two teams faced each other on VCL. Their last encounter at Split 1 was a very competitive series, as Disguised fought hard and almost broke TSM’s defenses. Therefore, this will be a thrilling matchup, as the loser will be out of the Mid-Season Face Off. Before the match starts, here’s what you can expect from this face-off.


While Disguised’s performance in Split 1 could’ve been better, there is no doubt that this team has been showing improvements. The Canadian squad was undefeated in the Open Qualifiers but faced some tough opponents in the first stage of VCL. Luckily, they were able to move forward into Mid-Season Face Off, and the upcoming match is DSG’s last chance to stay on this stage as they find themselves in the lower bracket.

Player to Watch

After replacing Exalt, riku had a tough role to play. But he came through with his performance in the last two matches. We are placing our bets on him to outperform his teammates yet again.


The unexpected 2:0 loss against Moist Moguls landed TSM in the lower bracket, and it is hard to predict whether or not this great name in eSports will be able to find its way back. Once known as rivals of 100 Thieves and Sentinels, TSM has now found themselves against a newcomer. Nevertheless, the fans are still hopeful, given TSM’s excellent performance on Split 1.

Mid-Season Face Off – Disguised vs TSM Preview & Predictions

TSM are the clear favorites on this matchup, but we think Disguised can learn from their past matches and turn this around. That’s why we are going with Toast’s squad for the win.


Disguised will be banning Fracture and Icebox, and TSM will steer clear of Pearl and Split. We will see them head to head on Ascent, Haven and Lotus.


Map 1: Disguised to win with TSM<11.

Map 2: TSM to win with Disguised>8.

Map 3: Disguised to win with TSM>12.

Disguised will have to fight hard against corey’s aggression, as he will pick up kills left and right!
