As it’s been the case for many teams after the first half of 2023, Furia also made some changes to its lineup – saffee and drop out, Fallen and chelo in.
Due to this change, many thought that Furia would raise the bar, but that’s not what we’ve been seeing during these first few games they played together – at least in terms of the final results. But what about the underlying stats aside from winning or losing, did they improve? That’s what we’ll discuss here today.
Being one of the most important rounds in the game – given that the pistol round can easily lead a team to a 2x0 right off the bat – we think that analyzing the pistol-round performances of a team will give some insight into their overall performance. With that in mind, we dove into the former and current rosters’ pistol-round stats.
Just in case you forgot, here’s what the roster used to look like:
As for their performances, the old roster had a 47% win record – of course, taking into account the last 50 maps played during the first season of 2023. To go even further, out of the 100 pistol rounds played, Furia won 47.
We also have to say that they were not very consistent – which seems to be a problem for Brazilian teams. In other words, Furia lost both pistol rounds in 13 out of the 50 maps and won both pistol rounds in 9 out of those 50 taken into account.
So, to sum up, Furia had been underperforming in these types of rounds. Despite that, they actually were performing well in the full-match view.
Here’s what the new roster looks like:
When taking into account the stats for “new” Furia’s pistol rounds, even though the sample is much smaller due to the team being together for just over a month, the team actually improved their game.
In just 4 out of the 18 maps played, Furia lost both pistol rounds. In contrast, they won both pistols in 10 out of those 18 maps. That’s already an improvement in the sense of consistency. But it doesn’t end there.
Out of the 36 pistol rounds played (2 per map), Furia managed to win 24 of them, leading to a 66,67% win record – that’s a 19,67% improvement when compared to the old roster. But of course, we have to take this with a grain of salt given that the samples analyzed are disproportional. Also, Furia has been kicked out of 3 tournaments this month (TWC Europe Series 1 and IEM Sydney Europe Open Qualifiers 1 and 2), so these improvements have not been reflected in the full sense of the games played.
With that said, we’ll have to wait a bit longer to get a full, accurate rundown on the improvements made after the roster change. If you want to follow up on this topic, be sure to come back to Strafe.com in a few weeks – we’ll definitely analyze this again after some more pistol rounds are played. See you then!
