OpTic upset FaZe; to ELEAGUE final

OpTic have upset FaZe 2-0 (Train 16-3, Overpass 16-12) to advance to the ELEAGUE Season 2 grand final, where they'll meet Astralis tomorrow.

Håvard "rain" Nygaard kicked off Train in style, picking up a quad-kill in a 3v5 situation while retaking the B bombsite in the initial pistol round. OpTic then turned up the heat in the gunrounds with fast attacks, which earned them a 5-2 lead.

Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey replied with a 1v3 clutch, killing two of the players while the remaining one had no time to plant the bomb, but FaZe's economy got reset in the following round.

The French player almost managed another big play in the next force, but he was denied another clutch by William "RUSH" Wierzba who ended up on just 3 HP at the end. From there on, the half was firmly in the hands of OpTic who powered through for a staggering 12-3 as Terrorists.

Once Tarik "tarik" Celik got a quad-kill in the second pistol round, there was little hope left for FaZe to come back. Finn "karrigan" Andersen's team attempted three forcebuys, all of which got denied as OpTic finished the map at a decisive 16-3.

The start to Overpass looked similarly dominating from OpTic, who got off to an amazing start after they picked up the pistol round on the A bombsite and got a read on FaZe's attack in the first gunround. Denying two more attacks towards B, the North American squad were in a 7-0 lead before FaZe finally found success on the same bombsite with a half-buy.

Aleksi "allu" Jalli then won a 1v1, which forced OpTic on a double eco. The European mixture's streak was stopped at five rounds, at which point Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas got a few opening kills while RUSH put up a double and a triple to end the half at 10-5 in their team's favor.

RUSH got another triple in the following pistol round, though FaZe managed a forcebuy victory to give themselves a chance in the match. With an aggressive setup towards fountain in the first full buyround, they lowered the deficit to just one round with a few ecos thrown in.

However, OpTic then put up two clean rounds and mixwell then came close to clutching a 1v3, dealing huge economy damage to FaZe in the process. As the North American squad won the next round, their opponents had to eco, and OpTic soon completed the upset  at 16-12 after two close rounds.

I dont feel optic won overpass, more like FaZe lost it. Allu was a bot and rain was asleep. 6 days out of 7 rain would rek them and 4 days out of 7 (cuz bot/god king inconsistency) allu would rek them.

I could've given FaZe a chance in a BO3 against Astralis honestly. OpTic though, I don't see them getting 20 rounds across 2 maps. But wellplayed, nice to see another north american team without huge names doing well internationally.
2016-12-03 06:27
Karrigan was the problem :P Astralis proved that they can get last semis without him. And even device was playing well in the semi final.

2016-12-03 10:55
feel like optic had the easiest bracket ever, only had to beat a fnatic w/standin a pos mousesports and a pos faze. And now since sk is eliminated they only have to face against astrallis in grandfinal
2016-12-03 06:29
they beat nv too. also are 8-1 in those 4 bo3s.
2016-12-03 07:12
you say that like envyus is actually good. They had easy group stage, fnatic (had stand in), envyus (still adjusting to new player and not that good of a team anyway), faze (this team is ass), mouse sports(this team is also ass). None of the teams they have beaten are within the top 5. They are blessed to get this far because of vp losing to faze and c9 not getting out of groups to challenge them.
2016-12-03 12:43
Keep the excuses rolling.
2016-12-03 07:54
what excuse? they got lucky af that vp didn't win their game and that c9 choked in group play and didn't go out first in place of mousesports. Shit even if c9 had went out second instead of faze they would have had to either play vp or c9 to get to grand finals and you and I both know optic can't beat either of those teams.

Rain is beast on LAN normally. 6 days out of 7 he would rek optic, today was his bad day. Allu though... hes not an onliner he is just always so inconsistent. 50% bot, like legit worse than Smithzz and 50% will go god mode and win crazy rounds/games.
2016-12-03 06:33
Rain on lan has been inconsistent since quite some time. Check the stats.
2016-12-03 07:45
Allu is one of the most consistent players we have lol. Do you even follow scene?
2016-12-03 09:16
lmao allu was by far their best and most consistent player, especially on lan where rain is shit in 8/10 games
2016-12-03 12:58

Scheduling, within 4 days faze has to forward their sleeping pattern by 6 hours, that is without it reducing reflexes and judgment, doable, but I have a feeling this is a partial reason for their weak performance. I suppose we are in for a statement clearing up wtf just happen.
