Following his team's victory over North that secured them a playoff spot, HLTV.org talked to Finn "karrigan" Andersen about FaZe's group stage struggles and the bracket ahead.

One of the favorites for the tournament coming in, FaZe, had a rough ride through the group stage, only securing a playoff spot with a win in the last match of the third day here in Cologne.

After losing to mousesports and picking up wins against fnatic and Heroic, FaZe were looking like big favorites to secure playoffs going into the match versus OpTic. However, the North American side took them down on Train, so FaZe was forced to face North in the final group stage match.

After his troops defeated the Danes on Inferno, we sat down with Finn "karrigan" Andersen to hear his thoughts on their ESL One Cologne performances, Nikola "NiKo" Kovač's impact as a secondary caller and more.

It means the most important thing. The use of this phrase is correct.

But the omega park would also make it the least important.
2017-07-07 01:03
No. the phrase "Alpha and Omega" means that it's the beginning and the end, the "Be-all and end-all", the most important thing.

Whilst it's not perfect, it makes perfectly good sense in context.

I think the point here is, that the money-aspect is so important on Inferno, because grenades are a necessity to defend the spots. On other maps you can win Eco- or Forcebuy-Rounds more easily than on Inferno. (without any utility)

Alpha and omega, who talks like that

I heard this being used by people from my father's generation. Like "Oh it's that important?", "Yea, It's alpha and omega". But in danish of course.
2017-07-07 06:13
yeah @dondane! I was wrong my bad, its common to say worldwide. But I thought it was "that shit is alpha omega" like, without the "and"
