-allu -kio +jw +dennis
markeloff to Na`Vi please, -GuardiaN
they didnt stun them, they send them packing bro
EZ FOR WAYLANDER!
wayLander rekt FaZe!
Faze thought they were top 3 but they aren't even top 10, LUL.
GL FaZe in qualifiers for next major, it will be sick NiP, Hr, Liquid, FaZe
Big upset but F3 clearly deserved it!
There go my Pick'Em dreams
What a let down by FaZe 3 matches being favorit team in all of them, lose in such fashion here.. zzzz
That was some vintage markeloff. Só good to see!!
Blad3's calls were just insane, karrigan had nothing on him, and their firepower was not enough.
HELLO EU 4Head CIS HERE 4Head EZ BLYAT 4Head
i remember "TSM Choke again" and now "#FaZeDown"
wtf hltv? Xd
Not expected, ROFL ez game
(/o_o)/ Blade take my energy \(o_o\)
most shocking? lol I bet f3 upset against nip in cologne was more shocking
oh wait... :D
lol... what happened to FaZe?
lmao NiKo is cursed, faze need to drop him if they want to get to playoffs next major
beautiful, get rekt FaZe fans
I REMEMBER NiP ELIMINATE FROM FLIPSID3 ON MIRAGE,SAME STORY AGAIN????
Hahaha ez 0-3 faze pick'em
How much can NiKo carry more ?
What the actual fuck just happened lmfao. Im not a FaZe fan but Im sure almost everyone expected them to at least make it out of Swiss
niko was the problem they said in mouz ofc xD
the NiKo CURSE arrived @FaZe
Ez for papa Markeloff. The GodFather of Counter-Strike.
Ez game / 2010 here / -top 2 team on major (0-3 AHAHAHAH)
HELLO FAZE? MARKELOFF HERE, GET OUT OF MY MAJOR
The downfall of FaZe has started!!!
Flipsid3 stun Pickem Esports
Vintage Markeloff. God of the Gods.
Bad title. The headline should be "Flipside send FaZe home".
Man, FaZe so bad. How come?
Apart from Niko everyone really underperformed
Kio was a problem and he is staing as a problem. Nice player(no)
I actually feel soooo bad for NiKo
I see this pretty much like LG being eliminated by TyLoo in Malmo last year... random result that won't make F3 gods and also won't change the fact that FaZe is still a contender for the next big lans.
Waylander having his first monster game since Columbus when he destroyed NV
No excuses, faze sucked balls and I think there will be changes to come, I dont think they should change anything but I guess this was too big choke.
Maybe -allu or -kio
Hopefully Allu will find his way to Penta after the Major... Though he has lost his form totally but the skill is there, maybe he'll bounce back.
First NIP now Faze F3 kings of upsets
FaZe = G2 2016. G2 were a top3 team before Cologne 2016, and then they got easily eliminated in the major.
wtf. they've been in 4 straight finals, and on cologne in semis. calm down.
What happend to kio ? Lol he was so bad in these three matches :((
FaZe > ... > .... > .... > .... > .... >BiG>Flipsid3.
FaZe tilted by the bug in the BIG game, they dont need changes, they just need to calm down.. Waylander good in 1/10 games they are just unlucky he showed up when they where tilted.. F3 go 1-3 sorry guys
NiKo literally cant catch a break, if this game dies out in the future and he doesnt even play atleast 1 Major playoff game then idk what to say about his career anymore
as for electronic, if the CIS shuffle were to happen, i want him in Gambit or Na'Vi (most likely Gambit since Gambit are doing well so far in this Major but we still have the rest of the groups and the playoffs)
for wayLander, some team like maybe the ones i mentioned above should pick him up or any top 10 team, cuz i hate seeing them perform at majors just to be let down by their teammates.
lastly Blad3, put him in a Na'Vi as an IGL so they finally have a system (that atleast guarantees them a place at Majors)
-kio +Scream or someone else better then kio
kio was the problem confirmed
kio and karrigan two scrubs out rly nice to see.
markeloff deserve a better team.
Finnlander was too strong this time.
first nip, now faze
we won't see fzae at the next majors
i imagine now the face of all the FaZe fans that during the major qualifier were saying that Flipsid3 was a wasted spot on the major xd xd
FaZe totally outplayed xd xd
And some girls said markeloff wasted player lol
NiKo is back in elo hell, what more can he do in his career
WTF????? HELLO FAZE??? HELLO NIKO??? WHERE ARE YOU?????
interesting, what kind of discussion was between markeloff and zeus after game ended.
well played by f3 though
every big event one of the favorites is eliminated earlier as expected
Kio is the fucking problem again.
Damn. Kinda feel sorry for FaZe. Think they over-practised and tried to over -achieve. Oh well, shit happens. Move on and win the next one!
electronic top 20 in 2k17
rip NiKo dream
Im so happy that faze went out in the most tragic way i can think of. Losing with a 0-3 record, sent home by 1 one the underdogs. I just dont feel like they are major champions material.
First of all, they lack some of the pieces. Yes, I never think that Kioshima is a good player to begin with. His highest peak was probably when faze won the starladder event and alot of that was kio going ham. But thats it. This guy is just gonna be consistently bad and underwhelming for most of the time. + he is a big douchbag.
Im sad for rain tho. I feel like he had the most progress within the faze team. He was also a pretty humble guy so i admire that of him.
Allu was the 2nd most obvious problem for faze. The guy is above average, but mostly underwhelming as fuck. He litterally whiffs a ton of easy shots, hence the nickname BOT ALLU.
Niko and karrigan meanwhile are faze's most precious treasures that shud be kept til death. Niko just had an off one and its on a major, sucks to be him and i kinda feel bad for him as well.
For karrigan, its tough when your players arent really on form. Plus the thing that happened with BIG, it really fucks karrigan up mentally. Still a very good igl.
Because of this, i put faze alongside g2. Potential number 1s but still a bit close to figuring it out.
Faze's solution would be to replace either kio or allu (imo kio) and get another but solid support player. Anchor type player like xyp9x or nbk. Imo, try rubino. They rely too much on rain and niko. To be fair, these two are one of the most consistent duos on earth, but they need a backup plan when both of them are having an off tournament such as this.
Flipside was fucking impressive. If there is an cis shuffle, players like electronic and blade shud be not wasted. Electronic was consistently good and rising in scene so fast. Blade was an amazing igl. The way he led the team to play some of the rounds were absolutely amazing. Very precised, coordinated, and discipline.
lmao -kio +xantares -allu +oskar
EU superteam losing against second weakest team on the major
u cant explain dat
being NiP fans, we know how it feels
FlipSid3 Gambit grandfinal coming
- allu + snax
-kio + k0nfig
Maybe they dont need to replace allu, but in My opinion snax is a more consistent awper, and he could be an option if VP do decide to change their roster
arent Faze considered favourites LOL
NiKo the only one with positive KDR, dem mouz vibes.
this team needs an aggressive awper, not allu
here for historical significance.
Kio's ratings in the major:
Against Big = 0.53
Against Mouz = 0.63
Against F3 = 0.68
AVERAGE = 0.60
Literally any pro can do better than that. I'm a C9 fan and Kio's even worse than nothing/shroud. At least n0thing and shroud go off some time, rarely but they do. Kio is bottom frag 100% of the time. If you check Faze's last 12 matches he was bottom frag in 11, and it's not like he has bad stats because of his role, he is straight up bad.
My pick'em :::: Faze 3:0 :-))) RIP
Don't think anyone could predict FaZe dropping out 0-3 before the major, wow. gg FlipSid3
I'm really sad to see FaZe go home like this, but losing to BIG and F3 pretty much seals the deal, sad for the whole team =(
WHAT THE FUCK RIP PICK EM XD
really im so sad for faze. i think - kio + scream or xantares and - karrigan also. just niko and rain playing good on this team. but need teamplay
Faze saving strats for major xD
This is like VP, they came in 16th at ESL Cologne and everyone said they should retire. But now that they beat fnatic and are now 2-0 in PGL, everyone loves them again. Like what the fuck pick your sides people.
kio allu and karrigan good enough for FaZe 4Head
how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how? how?how? how? how? how? how? how? how?This is nonsense
"Too bad Flipsid3 beat Liquid they won't do shit at the major..."
FAZE DOWN XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
God damn, hltv kids still continue with the -allu bullshit. He has literally never been the problem for FAZE and almost NEVER bottom frags. But because he's from Finland, a very small country with very few fans and without an "explosive" playstyle that these 12 year olds want to see he's always the problem. He was arguably the second best player in this major behind Niko. He doesn't have a flashy awp, but he gets the kills and that's what matters. He's a good team player.
Allu, Rain, and Niko are not enough though at this level. Kerrigan played awful and I rarely suggest making any changes but Kio has been consistently poor for literally months now. Kerrigan has got to begin fragging again and I honestly think Scream would be a car better fit than Kio. Another player who would fit well would be Elige... Even Pimp would be an improvement over Kio.
Sad result. Faze will be back with a vengeance I would think.
RIP FAZE AHAAHAHAH
Kick Allu and add FOX
IF this happened, faze would be just unbeatable
k1o was the problem
karrigan was the problem
allu bot was the problem
Dude Niko has got to be pissed
elimination by bo1... tier10 event
"Rain top 5 2017" HA HA HA
Kick the fucking baguette and buy a good player. Easy consistent top 3, at least.
Fucking hell, that's a shock.
RIP FaZe prediction to win the Major LOL.
Allu is a great player, but i still think oskar would be an uppgrade, bigger carry abilities... But then again, would it hurt the team chemistry? Kio has too seldom high impact games and valde who is free agent could be a better replacement. I would love to see tabsen instead of kio, but that wont happen. Give it another tournament.. They might bounce back. But frankly, karrigan is no tatical genius and when they are not on point aimwise,their tactics and teamwork isnt good enough to rely on. Meaning they will never hit the stabile level of SK.
This is going down in history.
+ScreaM +S1mple incoming
HAY LMAO POOR NIKO,..............
-KIOSHIMA -KARRIGAN. GG
Stop hating on Kio animals, the guy has the hardest role to play in cs. He pretty much carried them in the previous tours together with Niko. It happens that everyone has a bad tour, including him. Allu is not hitting at all, so he's pretty much an issue together with rain and Karrigan. Seems strats are outdated, and 2 of the fragpower are on a slump (Rain, Allu)
