he can easily build up momentum by beating people that are easier opponents, thats the correct way to build confidence, not play the hardest opponent first.
2. psychological advantage? midas??? are you smoking? no matter how many games he wins hes still a choker, and chokers NEVER have the psychological advantage, no matter how many games they win in the group stage
3. saying midas needs to play savior before savior "build up confidence" is ridiculous and you know it. savior is the cockiest most confident motherfucker out there, playing midas ro16 or finals doesn't change that savior's a champion and will come through in pressure situations.
4. builds. midas plays THE SAME WAY every single time. why would savior need to see more midas games when all he does is FE into tank heavy macro mass move out? its clear whose style has been figured out and whose hasn't, and it's obvious midas is the one benefiting by seeing more builds on these maps. if midas saw the iris fast vessel build vs savior on HH (or hell, ANY build in the iris/savior series) you don't think midas would've learned a few things?
5. midas chokes because of the pressure, not because of the round number. it's crazy to believe the pressure is alleviated simply because its the ro16 instead of semis, like some magic button is pressed. if anything, midas put more pressure ON HIMSELF by picking savior and giving savior motivation, placing so much emphasis on the match, etc. midas sucks under pressure, and he should've played easy opponents because there's no pressure there.
as i said before, it was a stupid decision
