SK beat FaZe to win IEM Sydney

SK Gaming have won IEM Sydney after defeating FaZe 3-1 in the title decider (16-12 on Train, 16-7 on Cache, 13-16 on Inferno and 16-11 on Overpass).

The series kicked off on Train, FaZe's map pick, but it was SK who looked the livelier right from the start as they got out to a 3-0 lead after winning the pistol round with an A split, with Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David picking up three kills.

FaZe then won the first gun round thanks to two key frags from Håvard "⁠rain⁠" Nygaard, cutting off the rotation from the CTs, but then they had to deal with a hard reset as SK took the next round. That would be the pattern for the rest of the half as every time FaZe won a round they were instantly countered by the Brazilians, who took a commanding 12-3 lead.

The second half began with FaZe winning a messy pistol with a defuse through a smoke grenade. After planting the bomb while on eco, SK got their first round of the half, but they were instantly reset as FaZe won the next round thanks to three quick kills from Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač.

Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen then went huge, picking up back-to-back triple kills, with Fabien "⁠kioShiMa⁠" Fiey following that up with a 1v2 clutch. With a trio of kills, João "⁠felps⁠" Vasconcellos powered SK to hit 14 rounds, but FaZe regained control of the game and brought the deficit to just two rounds.


SK Gaming win IEM title

The momentum was now firmly with FaZe, but SK were not going to let a comeback happen, winning two rounds in a row, the second of which in a 2v4 situation, to lock down the map and take the lead in the series.

Next up was Cache, which saw FaZe get out to a 3-0 lead on the CT side after denying SK's A push in the pistol round. However, once we reached the gun rounds the impetus of the game changed completely: they won 11 of the next 12 rounds as FaZe simply could not keep up with their blistering pace.

Now playing on the CT side, SK further added to their lead by taking the pistol round, but then FaZe hit back on a force buy thanks to a fantastic Desert Eagle shot from NiKo, which opened up the map for them.

FaZe followed that up with two more rounds, bringing the scoreline to 7-13, but SK tightened up their defence, winning four rounds in a row to take the map at 16-7.


FalleN was on fire on Cache 

FaZe got off to a flying start on Inferno, winning the opening six rounds to put SK in danger of getting blown out. After getting their economy in order, SK won their first round of the map thanks to three AWP kills from coldzera, with Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga winning two 1v1 situations against Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli in the subsequent rounds.

Money remained low on SK's side after two close rounds, so when FaZe got their seventh round on the board, the Brazilians had to eco. The scoreline bloomed to a 9-3 advantage for FaZe, forcing SK to call a tactical pause. The short break allowed the Brazilians to halt FaZe's momentum and they picked up two much-need rounds to bring the scoreline to 5-10.

SK got out to a fantastic start on the Terrorist side, winning eight of the first ten rounds to take the lead for the first time on this map. It looked like SK had the game in the bag, but a 1v2 clutch from rain helped FaZe to swing the tides back in their favour, with the European team following it up with three more rounds to seal a 16-13 victory.

rain's 1v2 clutch turned the game on its head 

Map four, Overpass, began with SK taking the pistol round but failing to capitalise on that win as FaZe hit back on a force buy, with rain and NiKo getting two frags apiece. After giving up the next two rounds to build up their bank, the Brazilians got a second round on the board, but a massive blunder on their part prevented them from tying the game at 3-3 as karrigan pulled off a ninja defuse with three opponents still alive.

The rest of the half was highly contested as neither team could string rounds together, with FaZe taking a narrow 9-6 lead into the break.

With the sides swapped, SK's defense flourished. They won the first five rounds to bring the scoreline to 11-9 and force FaZe to call a tactical pause. With their economy in shambles, the European team went for a force buy, but they s till managed to win the round thanks to a 1v3 clutch from rain. It was starting to look like a repeat of the Inferno game, but this time around SK did not let their lead slip away, winning five of the next six rounds to lock down the map, 16-11.

Epic stuff, and still tons more refinement and little improvements to come yet from this new SK 2.0 IMHO #1 ranking deserved already, writing was on the wall at summit and how they showed up here, but will be denied until PGL.. expect an even higher level of gameplay from both teams by then, hope to see a rematch in the major final.. Wish I was from the East and could've gone to see it live, lucky for you lot who did get to :) AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!

It's damn hard to be alone at barrels for instance, or having to watch short and monster.. give him a break IMO Stats don't say it all, yes it was less than he expects of himself I'm sure, far from his best or even an average game, but he isn't BAD or he wouldn't be in his ROLE on the greatest lineup in history ! if it was so easy to upgrade him it would have happened by now.

TACO isn't that bad, he has to solo anchor the hard to handle site in a bunch of situations and often be the distraction/human shield making space entering sites. He plays his role well and was chosen by FalleN for his specific skills and mindset in the first place.And ever since, they went to challenging, winning and then dominating 2016, had the target on them that #1 team always receives, resulting in the inevitable struggles.. but they didn't need to get rid of him to come back to the top. And they are quickly becoming even more of an epic team ? coldzera is #1 player in the world still IMHO.. NiKo #2 but cold is just that little bit better all round.. NiKo is better in his own way but overall I give a tiny edge to cold with snax shox and device all deserving mentions. Really there is so much talent these days and the overall scene level is still rising so I feel lucky to witness it.. even Valve can't fuck the game up enough to ruin it

He holds B overpass when the rest of the team is going to A. when the play is good, SK won the round easily. if goes bad (Taco doesn't make a good hold B and dies) SK still have a chance to win the round. he has a specific role in the team that many people don't understand. PLEASE, TRY TO UNDERSTAND HIM
2017-05-07 13:39
2 replies
No, he's a liability playing on those barrels, I've seen dozens of matches from them on overpass, it's always the same thing, he always gets rekt there. Also, most of the time he's got Cold with him there, so you're wrong saying he holds alone.
2017-05-07 13:41
1 reply
wait... are you talking about CT or TR, because CT is Taco and Cold, but in TR he holds it alone (when I say "hold" is like hold the CT players in Bomb site B, not allowing them to backup the other site)

He's stupid. Why? He peek in an unnecessary timing. Thats so dumb. I dont know what to say even if you look at the cam, cold and fallen look pissed when he made that. Its not about role. Lots of dumb mistakes made by him especially after plant. But really last map in overpass was unacceptable, only 6 kills total 28 rounds like pronax.

This entry role bullshit again lol. how does that explain that he threw multiple rounds by not covering the defuser and abandoning the bombsite and giving faze a free ninja defuse? TACO sucks, period
2017-05-07 19:28
1 reply
well, was that play a mistake from Taco alone? I mean, that wasnt responsability only for taco, all the players from sk should be covering the defuse, not only him. I bet that if he would be dead in the round you would put the guilt in another player, or maybe say that this kind of thing "happens". That play wasnt olny his fault, was a bad play for all the players.

allu deserves some criticism, its a tough role but he isn't consistent and disappoints a lot lately.. then he hits everything for a while (like yesterday) and gets your hopes up again.. maybe he will sort his shit out, only human I guess Imagine if his form was like device..

I am sorry to say that but even though he performs good he is not that good of an AWPer, he is not like a tier3 AWPer of course, I still think oskar will fit better than allu

no he doesnt. The point of allu being in faze, is bc Allu might not be the best awper, but he is by far the smartest one. He has the best positioning, really good at clutches and never over peaks with the awp. Eventhough oskar and mixwell are better pure awpers, they dont even come close to allu his total package
2017-05-07 16:31

I agree Allu plays smart for the most part. But one thing mixwell has going for him is that he is equally deadly on a rifle. Allu with a rifle is like having Bot Brian on the team. But I like allu in faze, he fits in well with karrigan as the igl.

not really, true skillwise he maybe isnt, but he has always good positioning and gets the kills. I would rather have a much better awper than a slightly better rifler

It's been a while since we've seen SK so dominant, actually. Looks like they finally found their roles and all of them seem to play their spots comfortably. Funny how SK is playing well again when VP went down the drain and vice versa.

Coldzera looking like the best player in the world again. Gonna be tough winning against them if they keep playing like that. Faze looked kinda bland in the final. Only Niko and Rain really played well all maps. Karrigan, Allu and Kio need to step it up if they want to win against SK/Astralis/"VP on lan". Good tournament overall by Faze though. I think winning against Astralis was a huge plus for them. SK should be the clear favorites for the next big tournament. They came and they conquered IEM Sydney!

Faze did many mistake, specially allu, very many miss from awp, many mistakes with position on def defuse, specially 3 on rows on round against coldzero. Rain wake up only on 3rd map, but its was too late. I am happy did saw comeback SK on good play, coldzero top1 without question/
2017-05-07 12:36
Series was much closer than it should have been, too many god given rounds out of nowhere for Faze despite SK being superior, should have been 3-0 for SK with a much much easier train. Faze was not on a good day besides niko and rain, no team can win tournaments like that.

Mm they have never been utterly bad for sure. When you consider whats been going on they only had one group exit i think this year or two. I wouldnt say they have been nr one this year but rather theres no clear cut nr 1 right now. Overall this year astralis has achieved tbe most but sk and faze not far behind for sure. Right now astralis looks worse than faze and sk. Can be the other way in the next tournament again. Thats why there isnt a clear nr1
