FaZe secure Major spot over IMT
FaZe defeated Immortals 16-11 on Mirage to become the second team to qualify for the ELEAGUE Major from the Main Qualifier with a 3-0 record.
The last match of the day saw Lucas "steel" Lopes clutching a 1v2 with few HP left in the Terroristic pistol round. FaZe bought up in the third round and forced Immortals to save two guns twice in a row, one of which steel put to very good use with a triple for a 3-2 lead.
The European mixture replied back right afterwards, survived a close forcebuy attempt from the Brazilians and continued to break through Immortals' defenses with a few quick plays.
FaZe secure Major spot over Immortals
At 7-3, steel provided another triple in B apps thanks to a well-timed flash from a teammate and set off a streak of rounds going his team's way. The in-game leader clutched another 1v2 towards the end of the half, which helped Immortals stabilize and get an 8-7 lead.
Philip "aizy" Aistrup and Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey combined for five kills in the second pistol round and their team also successfully defended both following anti-ecos. Henrique "HEN1" Teles's triple and 1v1 clutch gave his team their ninth round, while Aleksi "allu" Jalli got a triple of his own to reset Immortals' economy.
With FaZe getting another money-breaking round, they got up to match point at 15-9 and celebrated advancing to the Major at 16-11 with an eco round win.
