fnatic and FaZe split maps
Despite taking a 0-16 pounding on Cobblestone, FaZe managed to split maps with fnatic after a 16-8 victory on Mirage.
While fnatic delivered their A game and more, FaZe barely showed up on the server as the Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer-enhanced squad kicked it off with a bang. Starting as Terrorists on Cobblestone, the Swedes piled up round after round with their opponents not getting anything to their name.
Even Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad stepping up with four kills wasn't enough to put a round on the board, and when it looked like FaZe would manage to avoid the embarassment, Dennis "dennis" Edman stepped forward with a 1v3 clutch for 15-0. The second pistol round was simply a blood bath, as fnatic delivered the crushing 16-0 victory on map one.

Map two was a different story entirely - FaZe kicked Mirage off getting away with the CT pistol for a 6-1 lead, as they broke fnatic's economy in the fifth round due to Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey taking away four guns in the previous round.
dennis put a stop to the dominance with another clutch, this time a 1v2, helping his squad take three in a row. However, despite breaking the economy of their opponents, fnatic couldn't make much more of the last five rounds and went over to Counter-Terrorists with only five in total.
Ricardo "fox" Pacheco was at the top of the scoreboard and kept up the pace on the second half as well, as his triple with a tec-9 won FaZe the third round. The Swedish roster never got back on the horse, their economy was in shreds for most of the remainder of the match, and the European mixture took the map at 16-8.
