The attackers only had the advantage on one map: Split. Defenders had the edge on all the other maps, especially Bind, with a win rate of 59% (85).
Omen was the most picked agent in the tournament. The only time Team Yendez didn’t pick Omen was on the Bind map when they went with Brimstone instead. However, the experiment was unsuccessful as Yendez lost (5-13). No team picked Viper during this tournament, not even once. Currently, Riot Games seem unable to enhance Viper to a level that teams start picking her on the pro scene.
The most picked agents on each map based on the tournament results were as follows:
- Haven — Omen, Breach, Sova, Jett, Killjoy (or Cypher)
- Bind — Omen, Breach, Sova, Raze, Jett (or Killjoy)
- Split — Omen, Breach, Jett, Raze, Killjoy (or Cypher)
- Ascent — Omen, Breach, Sova, Killjoy, Raze (or Jett)
It’s noteworthy that no team picked Sova, although this agent was picked by other teams in all matches.
