FaZe have won SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 Finals after a nail-biting final against Astralis (2-1; Mirage 14-16, Nuke 16-6, Inferno 19-17).

FaZe continued with their fantastic record in pistol rounds with Håvard "rain" Nygaard and Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey combining for five kills on the T side of Mirage. The next two were split, which meant Astralis had to eco, but the Danes came on top of that one thanks to defending the B bombsite.

With that, Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander's men managed to climb to their first lead on the map at 5-4 following a defuse in a smoke when the team was at a disadvantage. FaZe then attempted a couple of splits, one to each bombsite, but only the first worked out while Astralis got to 7-5.

Nevertheless, FaZe were the ones to get away with the better half, grabbing the last three rounds for a 8-7 scoreline.


device's 1v3 clutch turned the tide on Mirage

Yet another pistol round win saw FaZe reach 11 rounds before Nicolai "device" Reedtz clutched 1v3 with a stolen AWP and smart play around a smoke. The rounds then kept going back and forth until it was 13-13 shortly after another forcebuy win going Astralis' way.

Nikola "NiKo" Kovač's huge double due to a timely push from underpass saved FaZe from having to eco, but their economy was in shambles anyway once the Danish side equalized the score again at 14-14 with an A execute. Fighting only against pistols during the remaining two rounds, device & company clinched map one at 16-14.

Another clean pistol at the beginning of Nuke gave FaZe a 4-0 lead early on, starting as Counter-Terrorists. gla1ve then saved a 1v3 attempt from kioShiMa on lower for Astralis' first round, which turned into three soon after.

Doubles from the Frenchman and rain stopped the short-lived streak and FaZe went on to rack up several rounds in a row with Aleksi "allu" Jalli putting up a quad-kill and NiKo chiming in with three kills later on. That gave the IEM Katowice runners-up a fantastic 11-4 half.

The second pistol round going their way as well with kioShiMa grabbing another big multi-kill left Astralis with all but zero room for error. FaZe took very little time to finish off map two, winning 16-6 to force the decider, Inferno.

FaZe didn't manage to win their sixth pistol in the series, but they did win the following force on the back of three kills from NiKo. After the European mixture won three out of the next four rounds, Astralis picked up a round with a poor forcebuy which rockestarted them into the half. 

Finn "karrigan" Andersen's squad couldn't find a way past the Danes' defences for the rest of the half with the exception of just one round, as Astralis switched over with a very comfortable 10-5.

FaZe got the much-needed pistol afterwards after three players waited in CT spawn for the information to come in, closing the gap to three rounds. They then had to save three guns due to losing the B bombsite without trades, and those weapons helped them eliminate all money on Astralis' side in the following rounds despite losing it in the end.

That in turn gave FaZe the economical advantage once they clinched the next round and once again found themselves just two rounds away from tying their opponents at 12-10. Multi-kills from device and "" made it 14-10, but FaZe didn't give up and replied with a forcebuy win.

After a poor force and an eco, Astralis showcased their signature methodical play to clinch match point, but they couldn't win either of the last two rounds as the match went into overtime. There, the European side stuck to their double AWP setup but got only one round with it thanks to allu's opening double in mid. However, FaZe grabbed three in a row on the T side to clinch their first big trophy at 19-17.

PotM: Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey was not only FaZe's top fragger in the series, he also had the most kills in the rounds they won on Inferno and Nuke (37-12 score in those rounds). Contributing in 91% of rounds on Nuke and 81% on Inferno, the Frenchman's consistency earned him the Player of the Match award.

Well I need to say this has been a good event from the level of CS I really enjoyed the desk they really pulled it of well even though I am not a fan of machine and thoorin it was also well casted BUT there where some major production issues The most fatal one imo was the decision making when to observe whom At many times we saw players outside of the action just before someone goes for a crucial peak Also we saw so much useless shit its great to see the players and the crowd from time to time and replays are the best but I don't need to see some fancy rendering of the map If there is the possibility a team will force I want to see the buy of the team and if there is the possibility of a kill after time don't cut it out Also the replays its great to see some crazy plays again but also show us the kills we missed during the rounds not a casual 2k when the opponent peaks 1by1 and turn X-Ray Off for replays it is so much nicer At last also maybe show us the buy at the side when you cut to the crowd or the players that way we can still se if they force or not or if they go for that awp
2017-04-09 22:37
So well played by FaZe. Happy for them, very deserved. They showed us world class cs.
2017-04-09 22:41
agree. Especially the lack of showing the money on the teams. I like Machine though.
2017-04-09 22:44
Yes also the weird glitch they had that you could only guess how much money a player spent during the buy

well played KioShiMa He finally stepped up and delivered. On the flip side there's a lot more to be desired from NiKo, his performance was disappointing to say the least
2017-04-09 22:08
Yeah, didn't shine at the finals, but overall NiKo was their top player.

Well deserved by FaZe, very tense match, but with the pistol wins they had and the immense skill in this lineup their future is bright. Definitely Top 4 right now, and I can't wait to see how they go for the rest of the year. Plus, k1o was the problem 4Head Karrigan getting revenge on Astralis too :)

Thank you FaZeUp they you took Cancertralis down, Run out of luck ha? Choke came back and hopefully it will stay for long time in their heads. hopefully they will end in a big slump like almost 90 % of 2016! But sadly they will hang on like a annoying spider on the top-....-

Nice. I'm glad they won the finale. Being leftovers from other teams they proved to be able to form a team. I am happy for karrigan, niko and kio in particular. Kio being the problem. Niko carrying mouse. Karrigan being booted from Astra.
2017-04-09 22:25
But also extremely great for rain who struggled to find a place in the nordic scene and worked so hard in this team ever since kinguin And Allu also who also couldn't find a spot in the nordic scene was pushed into roles he couldn't fit and been the number one meme of the community

They really deserved to win a big event, they are imho one of the, if not the, most likeable teams in CSGO right now! They had amazing mental strength to comeback from the first map, I can't wait to see what the future holds for them, but for sure they are a top 5, if not top 3, team right now! Also extremely pleased to see an international team finally win an event! #FaZeUp, GGWP boys <3

Well done for FaZe, amazing play. Astralis are still the number 1 so they have a lot of work to go yet if they want to be the best in the world, Astralis are still the team to beat as well since they've only lost 2 BO3s to top teams in this run of form, VP and FaZe now. Also, the format was unfair. Astralis shouldn't be punished for winning the semis by only having less than an hour to prepare and relax before the grand finals whereas FaZe have 4+ hours to relax. The grand finals should always be held on a separate day. Apart from that the quality of CS was amazing, so intense.

Did they fix the problem with the heat in the booths? Because that is most likely the biggest disadvantage FaZe had if it wasn't fixed.

There is a difference between sitting in there for 5 maps like Astralis and just short breaks and the long break FaZe had. Not that it was the difference in the game, but it might have given FaZe a small advantage.
2017-04-09 22:59
yeah fair enough, but I think that the short break was definitely giving FaZe an advantage. imagine how draining it must be to play a BO3 then have to prepare for another one an hour later without much rest, not taking anything away from FaZe though since there's no way that could have been avoided
2017-04-09 23:00
Deserved. It worries me about the discussion Karrigan and Niko were having before overtime, I hope that Niko just do what Karrigan ask of him. That double AWP setup almost lost them the matche atleast two rounds Karrigan and niko were overrun in B. I think Niko would had more impact with a rifle.

the last map was quite strange as I found Astralis played way better in general, just a lot less mistakes and a very good B hold and strategy, pushing banana every round and keeping it. Those 3 t rounds in overtime is where Faze really stepped it up finally and figured out how to counter astralis' ct side.
2017-04-10 00:43
For me this tournament showed that NiKo isn't a player that just gets many frags and good ratings. He knows how to play as team and how to win, i think that soon he is going to be top1 player and i always knew that astralis doesn't deserve to be called best team and doesn't deserve to be in top1 ranking, they won the major just coz of luck, gj faze!

2017-04-10 04:07
Dramatic ending. But most guys don't knows the end is come from EnvyUs captain [Happy]. A story begins from 2015 colon major. After win a major champion, Every Envyus members gets high, and feel challenge. Maybe [Happpy] want to build a more aggressive team(like 4 Apex style + himself, u know, that's popular in that year). Maybe in [Happy]'s philosophy, real champion should end the battle as earlier as possible, don't let rivals play clutch. So, they decide to replace Clutch guy——Kioshima. Then, is Astralis. Before in TSM, they have tried 1 breaker[Karrigan] + 1 posterior[Cajunb] + 1 freeman[Device] + 2 assistant rifles[Dupreeh+Xyp9x]. The question is: although they have world NO.1 breaker [Karrigan], and top class player [Device]. but whatever they work hard, their assistant rifle can't reach Fnatic's [olof + Krimz], Vp's[Snax + Pasha], EnvyUs's[NBK + Kioshima]. And Cajunb in majors worst performance(yes, maybe panic and neverus influenced his performance, and made him to be one of colon 2015 major 5 worst players in 8 legend team, but he get more 200% progress in next dubai's match). So they replaced Cajunb first. (that why he did not say hello when he meet his ex-teammates). Finally, they found a way——whole team group fight instead of individual performance. But Karrigan as a breaker, did not fit for the system. So they let him to play AWP.....Then, he go to Faze. The next thing u all know. Faze bought Niko to replaced Aizy. and won this. Maybe u think is a huge challenge for them. But, one thing is worth to check, that is Jkaem. The guy and Dennis beat peak status EnvyUs and scare them to S**t in major. Now, he is just an alternate member of Faze. So, u know how terrible of Faze's shooting?
