FaZe beat Na`Vi; on to ELEAGUE playoffs

FaZe defeated Natus Vincere 16-6 on Inferno, securing the first spot in group A and a place in the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2017 playoffs.

A promising start to the pistol round from Natus Vincere was spoiled by Håvard "rain" Nygaard, who got kill after kill on the encroaching Terrorists before clutching the 1v1 to start off the match with an ace. After cleaning up the second and third rounds, FaZe extended their lead by shutting down a late-round A execute by killing the planter, making the score 4-0.

FaZe had a 3v3 retake on B going their way to make the score 7-0 before the Ukrainian side finally got on the board with pick-off round that finished on A. The economy of FaZe was fragile after that, with back-and-forth rounds leading to ecos from the European mixture and Natus Vincere catching up, making it 8-6. The last buy round went the way of FaZe, as Finn "karrigan" Andersen's team pulled off another 3v3 retake on B to finish the half 9-6.

GuardiaN won against his former teammates

Natus Vincere had an even better situation going for them in the second half pistol round, but Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács turned a 2v5 situation on its head, getting four kills and punishing the defensive side's over aggression. Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko's team decided to go for an early buy, trying to surprise their opponents, but it backfired, allowing FaZe to go up 13-6 without being contested with a full buy.

An A site execute worked out perfectly for FaZe, as rain picked up two entries to extend their the lead. With limited economy and entries not going their way, Natus Vincere were unable to fight back, eventually losing the game 16-6.

Yeah, most talented lineup as individual players. As a team, not so much. There's a reason why SK is the best team in the world and FaZe isn't and I will daresay FaZe will never be Top1

seized again... but hey he was one of the best supports and he will reach his old form in no time without igl role:D FULLkappaHD
2017-09-09 05:29
What seized? Have you watched the game? He isn't the reason why they lost.
2017-09-09 09:54
I didnt say that he was the reaon(or the only reason)... But his performance was as below average as usual
2017-09-09 10:06
You judge by stats or what? Because I watched the game and I can say that seized performance was fine, he did many important frags.

Ha ha :D so true. But, the good side of it is - These 4 players are stronger than any other team's 5 players.

SK, I agree is better. G2 I'm not sure. G2 is inconsistent.
2017-09-09 06:09
I feel like g2 has a higher peak if only slightly
2017-09-09 06:12
It would be sad if any other player would be bottom fraging.....he did his job good and he has these stars to worry about frags
2017-09-09 07:41
Because of retards like u who think kills is everything, teams get destroyed! Like nip, fanatic, navi etc. Ohh kick that fifflaren bot, kick that pronax bot, kick that zeus bot and then when shit goes wrong, retards like you always say ohhh bring them back because the team went to shit! Get a life kid and you go try play better

No team will treat Niko like his former team treated him i.e. a superstar. In faze he is just one of the roleplaying team member.

Which is good, isn't it?
2017-09-09 08:27
Yeah. Treating a player like star will only make them a huge dick. Their ego will get so high that they will not practice thinking " I dont need to train, I'm the best." And so on. NiKo is better than he was in mouz because right now he is not playing like he wants to. He uses his talent being a team player, which is more helpful than playing like a "star".
