Oxygen Esports vs TSM Preview & Predictions – VCL NA Mid-Season Face Off

TSM and Oxygen Esports meet other for the first time in VCL as this is their last chance to make it out of the lowers.

After a confident win against Disguised, TSM are still in the competition. In contrast, Oxygen Esports find themselves in Lower Round 2 following their loss against The Guard. The winner of this encounter will be able to advance into the Lower Round 3, while the loser is out of Mid-Season Face Off. Therefore, there’s a lot at stake here, to say the least.

Oxygen Esports

Oxygen had a pretty promising start in the Mid-Season Face Off against G2. After a 2:1 win against experienced players like ShahZam and dapr, they had to face one of the titans of this event, The Guard. Even though they lost against trent’s squad, the match was close enough for us to truly start believing in Oxygen.

Player to Watch

Verno has been carrying the torch for his team, even playing Sova and Sage, and his consistency only makes us believe that he’ll come out on top yet again.


TSM have been enjoying a good run in VCL, losing only two series against M80 and Moist Moguls. On their last match, corey popped off against Disguised, kicking them out of the Mid-Season Face Off and advancing into the Lower Round 2. Overall, they are going into this matchup with a strong background and an excellent pace.
