FaZe over CLG in three-map thriller

FaZe are the fourth semi-finalists of ELEAGUE's Last Chance Qualifier following a three-map affair with CLG (Mirage 16-4, Cobblestone 14-16, Dust2 22-19).

The last quarter-final of the Last Chance Qualifier began on FaZe's pick, Mirage, and it was them to kick it off as Terrorists with three rounds in a row at the start. Tarik "tarik" Celik then put in a triple to get CLG a round on the board, but the American team ended up losing the following one.

While they had enough money to buy the next round due to surviving in four in the previous, Håvard "rain" Nygaard and Ricardo "fox" Pacheco won a 2v4 to force their opponents on an eco. When FaZe got to 9-1, CLG grabbed two more rounds, but the half still ended at a comfortable 11-4 in favor of the European mixture.

With one-sided rounds FaZe continued to thrive, and even the only close situation, a 1v1 afterplant, went Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad's way, as his team closed map one at 16-4.


Great display from aizy and rain put FaZe one step closer to EL playoffs

Switching over to Cobblestone, FaZe found themselves winning the pistol round for the third time, though CLG were able to stop them at two rounds as they force-bought in the third and Faruk "pita" Pita picked up three kills.

That set off a streak of six rounds, two of which were anti-ecos and one a 1v1 situation won by James "hazed" Cobb. Their go-to B strategy stopped working afterwards, as FaZe got five more rounds for a comfortable seven as Counter-Terrorists.

They couldn't keep their pistol-winning streak however, letting CLG get up to 11-7 after three convincing rounds. hazed's round-changing double denied FaZe a chance to build up economy after a won round, and Stephen "reltuC" Cutler's defuse in a 2v2 situation put CLG up to 13-8.

FaZe clawed back however, starting with a forcebuy victory on the B bombsite and a 2v3 afterplant on the other, and evened it out at 13-13. CLG were the ones to take control of the rest and take map two at 16-14, also due to a smartly played 1v1 by reltuC for map point.


koosta put on a show on Dust2, but it wasn't quite enough to pull through

Dust2 was left as the decider, and FaZe picked up their fourth pistol round win in the series for another 3-0 lead with rain taking point again, picking up three headshots with the USP-S.

Kenneth "koosta" Suen and reltuC then took over in the following three rounds, taking it to 5-3 in their favor before FaZe levelled it at 5-5. The newly-appointed AWPer, reltuC, stepped up with a quad with the big green gun, putting his team up to 8-5, but their opponents replied with two yet again to make it a 8-7 half.

Much like on Cobblestone, CLG won the second pistol, taking it to 13-8 eventually, trading the first couple of gunrounds. Upon losing the next one, reltuC's squad's forcebuy backfired. pita's triple, which included a double opening and a 1v1 clutch, put CLG one step closer.

FaZe broke their opposition's economy though and rain's 1v3 clutch against a forcebuy saved his team from match point. At 14-14, koosta stepped up with another three kills, but the match still went to overtime as jkaem landed a round-changing triple as well.

The teams kept exchanging rounds until the very end of the first overtime, and so the winner was not found yet. The trend continued in the first half of the second overtime, but FaZe finally took over with three in a row for 22-19.

2016-07-15 03:51
Not only 40k, but also really important kills, he was insane! I hope he keeps on playing like this, and that they get two new players because pita is just too bad for pro scene, and tarik is not trying anymore.
2016-07-15 12:14
Koosta was a god tarik and pita two bots! and fanboys will still suck tarik's brown nuts

Throwing on a 7% Match wtf?
2016-07-15 03:56
Yep all in. I'm aure tarik has a big inventory. Plus it's his last chance to throw until 2017
2016-07-15 03:59
1000$ investment = 70$ Win Wtf?
2016-07-15 04:13
Guaranteed 70 bucks. They just had to make sure it's convincing unlike IBP
2016-07-15 04:15
Not sure if bait or not But I would never even think about throwing a ELeague match for 70 bugs when looking for a new org/ team
2016-07-15 04:18

What a joke.
2016-07-15 03:57
I'm happy to see faze rebuild. Org cares about money and not results. I hope the core 3 now(koosta, cutler, hazed) will trial absolutely everyone and find 2 perfect players that can challenge the top of the scene and internationally aswell. Uber/desi/Drone are 3 type of entry/2nd entry players I'd pick up without contract. bol to them

If tarik was on a 'regular' day CLG would've been going trough. Terrible display by FaZe. Their 16th position on the ranking is accurate.
2016-07-15 04:44
There 16th Position in ranking is accurate because they fucked up in 1 Series But still qualify for every Major unlike other teams in front of them Yes very fucking accurate

Tarik is garbage, don't know why people think he's one of the best in NA. He's not even top 20 in NA.
2016-07-15 05:51
one of the worst decision makers in the game. its funny, he put up a tweet apologizing for his performance, and someone told him to start DMing...like what?

Exactly right, he's a great aimer but his decision making is some of the worst I've ever seen in CS:GO. Also lol @ the tweet
2016-07-15 05:58
the other tweet is even worse, using his contract situation as an excuse. i mean jesus, thats how the real world works. youre getting paid to play a game and stream - things you love doing. people would kill to be in your position.

Ikr. That's like when Kobe was on the Lakers when he was still in his prime and his teammates were shit. Real champions don't make excuses. You give it your all no matter what. Tarik isn't champion material.
