FaZe to playoffs over G2

FaZe eliminated G2 from the ECS Season 3 Finals in two maps, Overpass, 16-10, and Train, 16-11, for a spot in the playoffs.

The first map, Overpass, started the way of G2, as they won the first pistol round on the terrorist side and started to run away with the first half taking a 6-1 lead before FaZe could even react. Behind 4-7 on the scoreboard, Finn "karrigan" Andersen won a 1vs2 clutch in an afterplant situation after Dan "apEX" Madesclaire had cleared the A site with a triple, keeping early game close.

FaZe was then able to win the second pistol round to tie the match up, 8-8, going into the second half. With the momentum going their way, FaZe, took the lead 12-8 before G2 could win a round. Both teams then traded rounds, but FaZe finally were able to overcome G2’s defenses to take the map 16-10.

FaZe survive the group stage taking G2 out 2-0

The second map, Train, started out a much closer affair. FaZe was able to win the pistol round on the terrorist side, but after six rounds, a 3-3 score was on the board. The side, however, once again went the way of the European combine, who took a big 10-5 lead to the half with a very solid Håvard "rain" Nygaard leading the way.

The second half started with G2 winning the second pistol round, but two desert eagle headshots by Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and rain got FaZe back on the driver’s seat. The French team, feeling against the ropes, started force buying as FaZe accumulated rounds all the way to a 14-6 lead. Finally G2 was able to strike back, taking a handful of rounds to double digits, but finally FaZe got to match point and followed it up to close the map and match, 16-11.

Bad game from G2 overall, should not have let overpass slip after their strong start and letting train be the decider
2017-06-24 21:03
Yeah, shox and Kenny did not show up good enough. They are supossed to be the mad fraggers of the team, but imo boddy is becomming one of the best fraggers in this team.
2017-06-24 21:04
yeah indeed but bodyy didn't performed as good as he can. did solid but he is a guy that can go off easily.g2 sadly played weak.

No offence to who writes the article but you are really boring. When you mention Karrigan 1v2 clutch that changed the momentum of the match and probably ended up winning them the game. Not to mention the 180 turn headshot while been shot in the back. You need to make your writing more impactful to get us readers more involved and keen to read your article. Otherwise what's the fkn point?
