Meeting statistics

The current form of Rooster

Even considering Australia’s shortcomings in the CS world, Rooster isn’t among the strongest in the region. Their last place in the standing in the ESL Pro League Season 18 demonstrated how lacking in experience they are in tier-1 competitions. No wonder CS2 betting sites 2024 put such high odds for their win on Wednesday.

Though they were able to advance to the IEM Katowice 2024 Play-in by way of the Australian Open Qualifier, Rooster’s performance in local qualifiers was unimpressive; they were frequently losing to inferior opponents and were unable to advance to the ESL Pro League Season 19, IEM Chengdu 2024, and PGL CS2 Major Copenhagen 2024 Oceania RMR.

It’s expected that Rooster will have display significant issues at the IEM Katowice 2024 Play-in and finish in last place, missing out on qualifying for the tournament’s main stage, given their previous performance and recent qualification setbacks. Rooster prevailed in three of the last five games they played.

The “Bears“ are currently doing quite well; during BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2024, they defeated Cloud9 and BIG by the same score of 2-0.
