F3 to playoffs over FaZe in Kiev

FlipSid3 advanced to the quarter-finals at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 Finals after defeating FaZe 2-1 in the Group B decider (4-16 on Train, 16-12 on Nuke, and 16-14 on Cache).

The second match of the day started out on Train with FaZe on the T-side. Aleksi "allu" Jalli's opening kill with a Tec-9 allowed FaZe to take the pistol round. Although Håvard "rain" Nygaard's team lost the fourth round they answered in the following one with a 2vs2 win, making the score 4-1.

FaZe's seven round streak ended when Yegor "markeloff" Markelov showed up with the AWP but FlipSid3 trailed 4-11 at halftime despite being on the favored CT-side.


FlipSid3 advance to the playoffs

Oleksandr "Shara" Hordieyev's double kill and bomb plant in the second half pistol round did not suffice and FaZe went on to win the map in a dominating fashion with a 16-5 score.

FlipSid3 were the ones who started on the T-side on Nuke and they grabbed the pistol round without losing a player. The tables turned when FaZe's weapon round came about as Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad secured his team's first round with a quad-kill (3-1).

Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey and rain clutched a 2vs2 to put their team ahead and jkaem's triple kill extended their lead to 5-3. jkaem's monstrous performance continued throughout the first half which FaZe won 11-4.


FaZe down

The story in the second half was different as FlipSid3 took advantage of the CT-side, winning the first seven rounds of the half and forcing FaZe to call for a timeout. FlipSid3, unfazed, closed out the map 16-12.

After the T-sided FlipSid3 took the first five rounds on Cache, FaZe answered back with four of their own but FlipSid3 finished the half 9-6 ahead.

The Ukrainian team won the pistol and followed it up with the second round, making it 11-6. FaZe won their early weapon round but their streak ended at two rounds as FlipSid3 made it 12-8.

Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy clutched a critical 1vs1 and got a quad kill to make the score 14-12 and FlipSid3 finished off the map 16-14, and the series 2-1, advancing to the quarter-finals where they will face Cloud9.

Not that the teams are getting weaker but that the skill is leveling out and no longer do we have powerhouse teams with the best aimers and strategist, everyone else started stepping up and the skill is leveling out
2016-09-09 16:19
I actually talked about the Tournament but the "supposed" stronger Teams like NaVi, VP, FaZe And Godsent didn't deserve it. OK FaZe from did deserve it the most from the other 3 Teams tbh. But you're right

well yea Everyteam with pronax in 2016 is shiet Virtus premier NaVi fucked by the coach update FaZe still has kio and aizy
2016-09-09 15:54
Actually starix was there ? Coach update didnt apply here. Coaches were allowed to sit with players and even provided pcs. VP didnt have kuben. VP has an excuse,na vi dont,nor do godsent.
2016-09-09 15:58
That's not an excuse to lose to an Chinese team on LAN
2016-09-09 15:59
VP got rekt by envy as well,not just the chinese team. Thats why i said VP has an excuse,navi dont. Who gets rekt by envy these days? no one.
2016-09-09 15:59
no NBK tho
2016-09-09 16:00
Well apex had the game of his life,and apex plays like that in like 1 game per month Plus devil was 2nd in terms of frags,so just a good day for envy.
2016-09-09 16:11
Navi had a New player with a New role, maybe they are trying to CALL without starix too, and Aizy is the FaZe best player, with an unlucky series, not sure why u blame him, it's organization's problem for picking Allu instead of a proper IGL, making his team consistent enough. Fuck Homesent though, they should Play well togheter since they have been playing togheter at some point.
