VeryGames came from behind to beat LGB eSports 2-1 and win FACEIT's September Championship.
In an tournament with such an interesting set of teams, n!faculty, one of the four invited sides by the organisation, went no further than the first round after losing to compatriots BZSX, a mix team consisting of players like Patrik "zajp" Knutsen and Simon "twist" Eliasson.
In the semi-finals, BZSX were, however, no match for VeryGames, while on the other half of the bracket, LGB edged out fnatic 2-1 (16-2 on de_inferno, 11-16 on de_train and 16-4 on de_mirage).
This set up a mouth-watering final between VeryGames and LGB, with the Swedish side taking the lead following a 21-17 victory on de_cache.
Due to ping issues, VeryGames decided to play the rest of the game with Loic "RegnaM" Pero instead of Richard "shox" Papillon, a move that paid off as the French giants turned things around and won the match following 16-9 and 16-11 victories on de_dust2 and de_inferno, respectively.
FACEIT September final standings:
