The CLG read of Gambit at DreamHack Summer

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

If you’ve watched Peeker’s Advantage, you’ll know that FNS is pretty adamant Gambit had some easy to read tells as to what site they were were going to hit based off their initial setup on the T-side. While I didn’t bother to look them up, I did come across what CLG did specifically to beat Gambit at DreamHack Summer. It also didn’t fit in an article I’m writing, so here it is. The game was on Overpass.

What CLG did was they had someone rush up mid with an AWP, scope in and count the number of players that came out of tunnels. The number always gave away what site Gambit planned to hit by the end of the round, and CLG stacked either A or B off of that info and was correct in its read.
