FaZe move past IMT in Kiev

FaZe have secured their first victory at SL i-League StarSeries S3 Finals after moving past Immortals (16-10 on Mirage).

Immortals began as Terrorists on Mirage and even though they had two quick picks, a slow B execution guaranteed them the first pistol round. In the force-buy, FaZe managed to kill four opponents with Deagle, but Henrique "HEN1" Teles pulled off a 1v1 to win the round and eventually the next one.

Håvard "rain" Nygaard and Nikola "NiKo" Kovač then killed two each when holding bombsite A to win the first gun round. Immortals lost their eco round, but after that they executed B for a 4-2 lead. In a back and forth semi and force buy plays, Lincoln "fnx" Lau pulled off a quad-kill in a 2v4 clutch for a 6-4 lead.


NiKo finished with 26 frags after killing 17 in first half

It was on yet another semi-buy that FaZe got back to the game as Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey killed two in a 1v2 clutch. The Brazilian side had to save money twice and their opponents took a 7-6 lead. Aleksi "allu" Jalli's triple-kill in round 15 led his team to finish the first half with a 9-6 lead.

As for the second pistol round, FaZe won it with a flawless A execute, following it up with the corresponding anti-ecos – where the Brazilian team failed to kill any opponent. Ricardo "boltz" Prass helped his team win the gun round with a triple-kill and Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles did exactly the same in the next one for.

In the 21st round, Finn "karrigan" Andersen almost pulled off a 1v3 clutch, but fnx's play prevailed and FaZe had to eco. As they picked weapons, allu picked up an AWP triple-kill and a won 1v1 to help his team secure a three round lead. In the following round, the Finnish player won a 1v2 and from that point onward money didn't help Immortals as FaZe finished the game 16-10.

Really expected especially with the current form of NiKo. Immortals are overrated and HEN1 is inconsistent
