SK over FaZe in Group D, to playoffs

SK Gaming bring down FaZe on Cobblestone (16-6) and top Group D to advance to the ESL One Cologne playoffs, and thereby become Legends.

With SK advancing to the Group D winners' match after taking down G2 and FaZe doing so over fnatic, the two teams met on Cobblestone to settle the score over who would be first to exit the 'Group of Death.'

The Brazilians clinched the first pistolround on their CT side, with Epitacio "⁠TACO⁠" de Melo picking up the two final kills and defusing the bomb. FaZe bought up early on the third round but a triple kill from Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga shut down FaZe's attack and again flattened their economy.

SK continued denying FaZe attempts to execute onto sites and moved ahead to 6-0 before the seventh round finally saw Håvard "⁠rain⁠" Nygaard and his team put a round on the board. SK picked up the next round but FaZe managed to buy up again and the ninth round saw a triple kill clutch from Philip "⁠aizy⁠" Aistrup to give FaZe a second round.


coldzera had an impenetrable hold of the B site for SK

With Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David continually picking up impact frags while defending on the B site however, SK finished the half with an incredibly strong 12-3 lead.

rain and Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco picked up two USP kills apiece to give FaZe the second pistolround; while defusing the bomb, rain humorously managed to knife kill Fabien "⁠kioShiMa⁠" Fiey, who was standing behind him, the second he got off the defuser.

After winning their first anti-eco, FaZe lost to a SK pistolbuy that saw TACO come down drop and grab two quick P250 entry kills, which forced the former team to call a tactical timeout.

Despite FaZe managing to win a pistolbuy on the nineteenth round (which saw Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad get a triple kill), SK swarmed FaZe the next round and promptly moved ahead to closing out the map 16-6.

Is it because they are the team with the most dynamic style in the scene, able to switch from slow methodical play to freestyle fnatic-style destruction as they see fit?

FaZe obviously need a proper IGL finally. gla1ve is teamless now, why not to pick him for free? I'd say they should keep only rain and aizy, everyone else should be out of the team. They can also buy k0nfig from dignitas like they did it with aizy, it shouldn't be the problem for them. And since they need an AWPer, the possible option is cajunb. But if they don't wanna play at all - then it can easily be +Magiskb0Y +Friis. gla1ve rain k0nfig/Magiskb0Y aizy cajunb/Friis I think it would work out much more efficiently than their current lineup with 4 individually skilled players and jkaem.
