SK defeat FaZe to win ECS Season 3

MIRAA
June 26th, 2017 01:26

SK Gaming came from behind to defeat FaZe on three maps and win the ECS Season 3 title.

The series began on SK's map pick, Mirage, but the early stages would have suggested otherwise as FaZe cruised to a 10-2 lead. It all began with an A push from the European team in the pistol round, with Nikola "NiKo" Kovač picking up three stunning headshots.

The first full gun round also went FaZe's way, courtesy of a quad kill from Håvard "rain" Nygaard, but SK rallied back on a force buy. FaZe responded by taking the next round, breaking SK's economy by denying the Brazilians the chance to save weapons.

SK would go on to take a second round, thanks to a quad kill from João "felps" Vasconcellos, but once again they were unable to capitalise on that. With the scoreline 10-2, the Brazilians finally managed to string rounds together, winning the final three rounds of the half to keep their hopes alive.

Fernando "fer" Alvarenga opened up the second half with an entry frag on A before picking up three more frags near the jungle area. The Brazilians continued amassing rounds and eventually restored parity at 11-11.

It looked like FaZe had no response to SK's pace, but then the game took a turn. With a triple kill on B, Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey put FaZe back in the lead, with rain following that up with a trio of kills of his own on the other site. SK still called a timeout in an attempt to halt FaZe's momentum, but the damage was done: the European team would go on to win the next three rounds in convincing fashion to lock down the map, 16-11.

SK secure ECS title in dramatic fashion after winning two maps in OT

The next map, Inferno, began with a flawless B execute from FaZe, who also picked up both anti-eco rounds. After losing the first gun round, FaZe restored a three-round lead with an A execute, but then they were torn apart on their way to B, where Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo secured three frags with the AWP.

What followed was a very dominant period from FaZe, who won seven of the next nine rounds, with fer ending the half on 21 frags.

FalleN went huge in the pistol round as Terrorists, picking up an ace, but it was all for naught as he could not kill the defuser on time in a 1v2 situation. SK hit back on a force buy, which propelled them into a 12-7 lead.

FaZe then tightened up their defence, winning five of the next six rounds to bring the deficit to a minimum. With a force buy, SK got their 14th round of the game and left FaZe strapped for cash. It looked like the map was about to come to an end, but the game took yet another surprising twist as FaZe pulled one back with a B stack on eco.

The European team went on to reach match point but they could not deal the finishing blow, wasting a 4v2 advantage in the final round to let the game go to overtime, in which SK would secure the win with a flawless CT display.

FaZe were one round away from victory but could not close it out

The final map of the series was Train, where the first-half was a one-sided affair from the get-go. SK jumped out to a commanding 11-0 lead as FaZe simply could not find a way through the brick wall that was the Brazilians' defence.

After calling a timeout, FaZe finally got a round on the board in a force-buy, and they followed that up with a gun round thanks to three quick kills from Aleksi "allu" Jalli with an AWP. But that was as far as they would go as SK bagged the final two rounds of the half to take a 13-2 half-time lead.

And that was when insanity began. FaZe put on a near-flawless display on the CT side, giving SK Gaming very little room to operate. Once again, the European team reached match point, only to be caught out in the final round.

The first half of overtime ended with FaZe taking two rounds. The second half went down to the wire, with SK securing three straight rounds to seal a 19-17 victory.

He stepped up when the team really needed him with that 3k as t, and as ct he just destroyed sk. Really don't know why he gets so much hate. He's a top 4 awper imo, along with kenny, fallen and device

he is not a pro. he is Niko. arguably best player in the world, he might even become EVER, a god in clutches, and he makes a rookie mistake. if u kill some1 that knows where u are, likely if u peek his teammate will kill u.
2017-06-26 15:26
Hes not really a pro more of a aimstar if someone shines him in that regard hes pretty useless then because he doesnt have much of gamesense

2017-06-26 16:08
He is the most skilled player in the world. But cold is the one who doesn't really makes mistakes, both awesome to watch. Still Niko is no.1 for me.
2017-06-26 18:32
don't wanna say something bad but do you remember that coldzara's clip vs snax on cobblestone? :D
2017-06-26 23:34
...fucking seriously. FaZe completely fucked Inferno AND Train, especially after the amazing comeback they had, but Niko could've literally just pressed S instead of W, like a god damn tard, and they would've won. Not that I can give him shit, he played great all event, but...uuuugh. It was SO fucking close. Other teams need to get over being scared of SK. There's hardly ever finals where the winner somehow gets the runner-up to make SO many stupid, blatant mistakes, that they should never make. All those teams need to, instead of just aiming better and being more confident, also start being more SMART against SK, because losing the situations FaZe did to end up losing the final because of them...is ridiculous.

like the problem with inferno was that they let fer get behind them once but they didnt expect it the following rounds i also thought up tons of ways to kill the guy ALWAYS peeking apps and wallbanging door, he did it like a tix ffs, just take 2 steps into the molotov and bang off his head from the other side then push it with 2 ppl ez a control
2017-07-01 04:31
A real final

Fantastic series, can't wait for more matches between Faze, Astralis, and SK. All 3 have been insanely close these past couple months.
2017-06-27 19:37
GRATZ SK GAMING GGWP I'ma be honest here, pretty sad that FaZe lost this but was close af. Glad for SK though, they absolutely deserve it after all the hard work they've been putting in. Really nice to watch SK play, as you know that they always do so much practice, in fact, they probably practice the most out of all teams and have the least off time. GG FaZe, FaZe were strong, but not strong enough, I'ma hope for my man k1o to win next time :P. FaZe still look incredibly strong, and who knows, maybe these are the same two teams we'll get to see in the Major finals and hopefuly get a rematch! Was definitely the most entertaining and the closest match at this LAN! Definitely a Finals worthly, couldn't have asked for better finals! In the end GGWP, both teams played great but SK came out on top this time! #RUNSKG #FaZeUP

hope? He literally carry SK today.
2017-06-26 01:40
yeah, but there have been other tournaments where he or fallen were outstanding, but cold always gets the mvp... these awards seem to be a little biased to me
2017-06-26 01:44
Yeah, 'cause Cold had always carried harder in the events he got an MVP for.
2017-06-26 16:42
Ofc dude sometimes the mvp it's correct sometimes not the marketing is crucial in every sport. Fallen last tournaments of the past year was insane but they couldn't get those trophys. Fer was outstanding with fox and then with felps. Now with more freedom in his game and with a better team he's going to deliver more and more. Cold was so consistent even this tournament but he didn't shine like sidney for example. He is lurking more etc with felps and fer doing their job getting kills etc and cold is doing more fnx role and it's ok because sk reach the top again.

2017-06-26 01:55
Between Top 3 tbh G2 isn't on the same level like FaZe, Sk and Astralis imo Excited to see NaVi and VP they've been quiet but I think they prepared huge things
2017-06-26 16:14
Especially VP. If VP actually comes back and doesn't completely shit the bed, then it's gonna be hard to know who to root for. If it ends up with a VP vs FaZe final, I'll be too conflicted, and I'll just keep going back and forth after both take rounds.
2017-06-26 16:52
What I learn from vp is that you can't never chill. I meant when this guys are back on form it's because of something. It's because they want to back on track. I know they will be back but they are older and they can't have that consistency they had before (2 o 3 tournaments in a row reaching semi finals at least or something like that).

Why are all brazilians so fucking cringy, it's unreal. I hate SK just because of their fanbase
2017-06-26 01:30
Sorry to say, but kinda dumb from you. Not all of SK's fanbase is stupid and, even if they were, SK has nothing to do with it. I mean, being unable to appreciate cold, fallen and fer playing just because of their fanbase is just silly. You don't know the delight you've been missing.
2017-06-26 01:34
I do appreciate their plays, they truly are among the best in the world, but for some reason I'm always cheering for the opposite team, just because I know what's coming from the fans if SK wins. Always taunting, it's really annoying and cringy. I've just seen perhaps the greatest match of 2017, first thing I see afterwards is Brazilians spamming "ez" and "cryisfree". I know others do it as well, but it just seems less. But tbh I know I'm getting way too worked up about it, and should really care less. Enjoy the win, they did actually deserve it, no matter how painful it was to watch those last few rounds from FaZe.
2017-06-26 01:42
Unfortunately every team has this kind of fans, but if people knew a little more of SK, especially Fallen, this hate would disappear. Awesome players and people.
2017-06-26 02:53
Nice one. Although the posts are also cringy and weird when SK loses. Win or lose, the site just goes bananas when SK plays.
2017-06-26 03:01
For good reason I suppose. They are currently the number one team after all

2017-06-26 01:32
They never gave up even when they were far behind. Both SK, Astralis and Faze brought their best games. If you honestly think SK players were lucky, you haven't watched the game. This is high level CS. Everyone is just insanely good. Faze played very well, they gave it almost everything it took to win, but not enough. SK did. Fer MVP! Niko was a beast aswell, so MVP could go hes way aswell.
2017-06-26 01:38
Impossible, MVP is always on the winning team
2017-06-26 01:44
that is why i think fer will get it. But niko is a beast, regardless.

Really good match, both team played on super good level, sk shows that they're still the best team in the world and if someone still thinks that its astralis then he must be stupid :D There will be a battle between FaZe, SK, VP and G2 for top1 and top3, i think that it will be like this: 1.SK 2.FaZe 3.VP 4.G2 and 5th spot will always change, hope to see optic playing on high level too and fighting for top5
2017-06-26 01:32

2017-06-26 01:52
As a SK fan I was really happy when Astralis won Liquid and Sk Had to fight against Astralis and Faze, it gives more meaning to "top1", though I was worried as hell. Also, looking at how the fights went and the fact that both maps went third map, I believe any of those team can get top 1.
