ECSTATIC vs EG Black Preview and Predictions: ESL Challenger Melbourne 2023

Two teams will fight to stay alive at the ESL Challengers Melbourne 2023 in the ECSTATIC vs EG Black Group A elimination matchup

ECSTATIC were on the verge of completing a phenomenal comeback against Complexity in the opening match, but it was too little too late as the NA giants edged out in a 16-14 affair. The Danish side will now take on another American side when they face EG Black in the Group A elimination match. Fans who saw ECSTATIC’s fighting spirit against Complexity might consider themselves the potential winners, but some might side with EG Black as the CSGO betting favorites for this tie as they are the higher-ranked side. 


ECSTATIC suffered an onslaught in the first half against Complexity and fell 12-3 behind at the interval. It only appeared to be a matter of time before Complexity left the stage as the winners, but the Marcus “maNkz” Kjeldsen and company came back strong after the break and narrowed down Complexity’s lead to only two points. Even though it could not settle the tie in their favor, the late resurgence should boost the morale at the ECSTATIC camp.
