mouz secure first place in group D
mousesports defeated FaZe (16-10 on Mirage) to clinch the first place in group D and a spot in the playoffs of DreamHack Masters Las Vegas.
The early phase of the game went the way of FaZe who were up 6-2 before mousesports started to stabilize on their CT side. Contrary to what we are used to seeing from mousesports, all of their players were contributing in round wins and they managed to get to seven CT side rounds before FaZe closed out the half with an 8-7 lead.

mousesports came out on top of a chaotic pistol round, and a similar scenario repeated in the following round with Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný clutching a 1v1 against Aleksi "allu" Jalli to get a 9-8 lead. The Czech AWPer had a multitude of high impact kills on the T side that got mousesports to 13-10 lead.
The following round was on Nikola "NiKo" Kovač who got a kill in A palace and then shut down FaZe with three more on the window room lurk while his team was pushing A. Despite Finn "karrigan" Andersen's UMP-45 antics in the B house that yielded him two kills, mousesports were able to close out the last round to make the score 16-10.
PotM: Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný was dominant with the AWP, getting 24 kills with his main weapon and 33 in total. Adding to that a +4 first kill difference and his big play in the key moment of the match, he easily takes the PotM award.
