FaZe overrun Renegades

FaZe are 1-0 at IEM Sydney after easing past Renegades 16-4 on Mirage.

FaZe, who began the match on the CT side, came out of the gate looking scary and took seven of the first eight rounds as Renegades struggled to find a way to get through the Europeans' defence.

After calling a timeout to discuss their strategy, Renegades got a second round on the board thanks to a pair of entry frags from Noah "Nifty" Francis, but FaZe hit back right after, resetting the Australians' economy. With nothing going their way, Renegades were limited to just three rounds in the half.


FaZe were far too strong for the Australians 

FaZe piled more pressure on Renegades with a successful B push in the second pistol round. The Australians fought back on eco with a trio of kills from Karlo "USTILO" Pivac, but they were unable to follow it up as FaZe bagged the next three rounds, cruising to a 16-4 win.

Why is SK always playing these bad tier tournaments? Is it because they are a shitty team?
2017-05-03 10:19
yeah, in large tournament they're out in groups so they have to play against low tier teams like here or cs_summit to have even a slight chance of making the finals

They can't win this one, FaZe and Astralis too stronk. Probably they hoped there would be more shit teams in this tournament than those two. NT SK, maybe next time.
2017-05-03 10:23
I mean it has Faze and Astralis who are top 1 and 2 so I'd say it's a pretty good tournament by the time it gets to semis
