On Saturday, Obey SMITE will be up against Burrito eSports in the third week of the SPL Fall Split following their important 2-0 win versus Team Rival. Obey has done phenomenally so far this split, sitting in second place as of Thursday night. However, come Saturday, Obey could slip into first, should they find the 2-0 versus Burrito. This sweep seems incredibly likely, considering Burrito’s performance in the Fall Split and their last place finish in the Summer Split. Even though Burrito brought in Alexey “FaraKrik” Farion to fill the hole left by Willem “DeathPanter” Hoste in the mid lane, within the first week of play they were able to snag a win against Team Elevate, DeathPanter’s supposed new team. To Burrito’s contentment, this single win was enough to equal their performance from the split before. To be fair, the Summer Split was also their first split in the SPL, having joined The Papis as the newcomers to the professional stage. However, much like The Papis, their inexperience within the SPL has really shown, and Obey, being the tenured players that they are, will likely be able to take advantage of the beginner mistakes and lack of synergy that Burrito may show.
