SK to EPICENTER playoffs over FaZe with a 2-1 victory

SK have defeated FaZe 2-1 in St. Petersburg, Russia to advance to the playoffs at EPICENTER 2017 (7-16 on Inferno, 16-2 on Overpass, 16-8 on Mirage).

The Group A winners' match kicked off on Inferno where the T-sided SK won the pistol round despite having a 3vs5 disadvantage. The Brazilians made it 4-0 after winning the first weapon round by claiming yet another 3vs5 win.

SK were leading 7-3 in the first half when Finn "karrigan" Andersen & Nikola "NiKo" Kovač took the reins and led FaZe to an 8-7 first half victory. Håvard "rain" Nygaard's triple kill in the second half pistol round made it 9-7 and the European squad won two rounds against ecos to get to eleven rounds (11-7).

coldzera stepped up against FaZe

Epitacio "TACO" de Melo got two opening kills for his CT-sided team in the first weapon round of the second half but FaZe clutched the 3vs5 with Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and karrigan's kills. FaZe then extended their streak to thirteen rounds and won the map 16-7.

Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's team started Overpass on the CT-side and won the first five rounds. Two opening kills by NiKo gave FaZe their first round but they couldn't penetrate SK's defense throughout the rest of the half and trailed 13-2 at halftime. The destruction continued in the second half which saw SK close out the game by picking up three rounds on the T-side to close out the map 16-2.

FaZe will play VP in the decider match

On the last map, Mirage, SK won the first three rounds on the CT-side. FaZe responded by picking up the first weapon round (3-1). SK looked like they were running away with the half when they had a 7-3 lead but FaZe held on and got four more rounds. SK were ahead with an 8-7 scoreline at halftime.

The Brazilian team won the first four rounds in the second half but lost the fifth round to FaZe's pistols (12-8).  SK responded a round later as FalleN clutched a 1vs1 post-plant against olofmeister who was trying  to defuse the bomb (13-8). SK finished off Mirage with a 16-8 score and won the series 2-1, advancing to the playoffs.

SK greatness is beyond what humans can comprehend. too ez for the best team that ever touched counter strike. not even FaZe, the best lineup possible non BR can touch the greatness of the best team ever. the way SK play is poetry, is music to your ears. coldzera is the best player ever, you guys can cry conspiracy, but he is clearly better than anyone u want. the salty tears are a common thing to us, please keep em comin. #ferGODtop1 #coldzera #boltthebraziliannutella #thecryisfree #TACOREST #areumadCUZIMNOT twitter.com/twitter/statuses/92324054004..

Just groups? They crushed sk on inferno but then sk was playing pug style with fer on overpass. A lot of bad decisions in mirage and that cost them the map. Ofc faze can beat this sk but they were playing with an stand in and fuck faze right in the ass in the last 2 maps. Im surprised but sk always manage to get something even in the worst moments. Surely best team of this year.

Way too easy for SK Gaming, the best team that has ever existed in all versions of Counter Strike. This record-breaking machine, also known as "team", consists of: Gabriel Toledo - Fallen: The best sniper and In-Game Leader that ever existed in this game that people call Counter Strike. Fallen is a beast. When the enemies press TAB and see his name on the other team, they instantly choke and lose all their composure, hence losing the match, just ask Team Liquid and they will tell you all about this. Fernando Alvarenga - Fer: The best player of 2017 so far. His play style is so good that the enemies can't even see where he is on the map. If you think Fer is in one place and you go and check that place you'll find out that he's not there and is actually behind you and by this time you have already been knifed and humiliated by the best lurker that ever played this game. Enemies choke just by seeing his model in-game, just ask TaZ and he will tell you more about it. Ricardo Prass - Boltz: Some people say this guy is the next Coldzera. He is always the best player in every team he plays. He has the chance to prove himself now that he plays for SK. He will get to learn even more from the best Counter Strike player ever: Coldzera. With Boltz on the lineup, the sky is the limit for SK. He is such a versatile player, you know you count on him to be the entry fragger, main rifler, lurker and if he is left alone in a clutch situation you know, you just know, that he will win and bring it home for his team. As Boltz returned to play under the leadership of the greatest IGL of all time, Fallen, we get to see what he is made of, and as always, he won't let us down. Marcelo David - Coldzera: Also known as GODZERA he is without a doubt the best player that ever played this game. Fallen is the best sniper and IGL, but Coldzera... Oh Coldzera, what can I even say about this man? He's like the Messi and CR7 of CS:GO, he's not from this planet. His aim is always on point, his game sense is impecable, he is also the smartest player that ever existed and the most humble one also, because a player of his skill level you'd think that he'd play as the team star or IGL, but no, he plays a support. But Cold (or GOD) can play any role and he'll still be better than 100% of the players. You know why? Because Coldzera has magic! Good players win titles, amazing players break records, Coldzera breaks the rules! You can stay with your stats that I'll stay with the magic! You prefer the stats, I prefer tha magic, I prefer COLDZERA! Epitácio de Melo - TACO: You might get fooled by his stats not being so good as his other 4 teammates, but just watch any SK match and you will see why TACO is the best entry fragger in the world and best solo B player ever. He's so versatile, you can give him any weapon, even an AWP, and put him alone in any B bombsite of any map and he'll humiliate all the players of the other team by his amazing skill and outstanding positioning as well as his out-of-this-world game sense. He's one of the smartest players that ever played this game and you know that. As a Terrorist just put him in front of the line and he'll win dominate the bombsite all by himself, and even die so that his team can plant the bomb! Tell me if this isn't the best thing a player could do? Give his life and give up having good stats so that his team can succeed? I can't hold back the tears anymore, damn my keyboard is all wet now... I'll have to stop here. TACO <3 And this is why this is an easy match for the best team that ever existed.

Coldzera> Niko NIko will never ever be as good as coldzera. All niko has is just very very good aim. He is brainless sometimes. Coldzera has the aim + incredibly gamesense.
2017-10-25 19:26
SK played so much better as a team, it's not cold being better than niKo. And btw Fer did better, at least in the first map.
2017-10-25 19:29
fer was complete dogshit on the first map, easily the worst perfoming player in the server. He was great on Overpass and mirage though.

2017-10-25 19:26
Many people talking about Fer being an eco fragger, but he had quite alot of impact especially on gun rounds, while coldzera literally had half of his kills eco kills. Yet eco fragger is Fer?? Idk really. MVP of first map for sure, and a good team show in general in 2nd map, great Boltz ended top fragger (or at least close to it now im not sure)
2017-10-25 19:27
Second map, im sorry. Im just retarded
2017-10-25 19:41
Was a great game, but FaZe still showing a great CS. Maybe the both teams divide the top 1 atm.

I mean, I admire SK. They have beaten FaZe with such a roster and in one hell of a streak. But let’s not jump to conclusions, shall we ? They have been a disappointment since the major, following Eliminations to G2, then Liquid, twice, and Heroic. They’re still not so good, and even if they got rid of felps.

2017-10-25 19:34
Faze is still a better team as a team. The problem is they tried to out-aim SK, it's like they actually read HLTV comments and believed niko is better than cold, guardian is better than fallen and rain is better than fer, which is so stupid. SK is an easy team to outplay, but an impossible team to out-aim. Take your notes, karrigan.
2017-10-25 19:34
By the way they've been talking on twitter, this actually seems possible
2017-10-25 19:41
Sorry, didn't get it. What seems possible?

This is one of the worst comments I have ever seen in my entire life, congratulations! 1) SK has no fault if their opponents are or aren't injuried: they play against whoever appears in the match; 2) There's almost no luck involved in CSGO at all. If you believe in that you are retarded and a very low skilled player. 3) What kind of voodoo did SK do to have so much "luck" while nobody else has it? Stop being stupid, it is NOT luck, it's skill, preparation and practice; 4) Keep crying while SK keeps winning. PS: Everyone will remember their wins!

Way too easy for SK Gaming, the best team that has ever existed in all versions of Counter Strike. This record-breaking machine, also known as "team", consists of: Gabriel Toledo - Fallen: The best sniper and In-Game Leader that ever existed in this game that people call Counter Strike. Fallen is a beast. When the enemies press TAB and see his name on the other team, they instantly choke and lose all their composure, hence losing the match, just ask Team Liquid and they will tell you all about this. Fernando Alvarenga - Fer: The best player of 2017 so far. His play style is so good that the enemies can't even see where he is on the map. If you think Fer is in one place and you go and check that place you'll find out that he's not there and is actually behind you and by this time you have already been knifed and humiliated by the best lurker that ever played this game. Enemies choke just by seeing his model in-game, just ask TaZ and he will tell you more about it. Ricardo Prass - Boltz: Some people say this guy is the next Coldzera. He is always the best player in every team he plays. He has the chance to prove himself now that he plays for SK. He will get to learn even more from the best Counter Strike player ever: Coldzera. With Boltz on the lineup, the sky is the limit for SK. He is such a versatile player, you know you count on him to be the entry fragger, main rifler, lurker and if he is left alone in a clutch situation you know, you just know, that he will win and bring it home for his team. As Boltz returned to play under the leadership of the greatest IGL of all time, Fallen, we get to see what he is made of, and as always, he won't let us down. Marcelo David - Coldzera: Also known as GODZERA he is without a doubt the best player that ever played this game. Fallen is the best sniper and IGL, but Coldzera... Oh Coldzera, what can I even say about this man? He's like the Messi and CR7 of CS:GO, he's not from this planet. His aim is always on point, his game sense is impecable, he is also the smartest player that ever existed and the most humble one also, because a player of his skill level you'd think that he'd play as the team star or IGL, but no, he plays a support. But Cold (or GOD) can play any role and he'll still be better than 100% of the players. You know why? Because Coldzera has magic! Good players win titles, amazing players break records, Coldzera breaks the rules! You can stay with your stats that I'll stay with the magic! You prefer the stats, I prefer tha magic, I prefer COLDZERA! Epitácio de Melo - TACO: You might get fooled by his stats not being so good as his other 4 teammates, but just watch any SK match and you will see why TACO is the best entry fragger in the world and best solo B player ever. He's so versatile, you can give him any weapon, even an AWP, and put him alone in any B bombsite of any map and he'll humiliate all the players of the other team by his amazing skill and outstanding positioning as well as his out-of-this-world game sense. He's one of the smartest players that ever played this game and you know that. As a Terrorist just put him in front of the line and he'll win dominate the bombsite all by himself, and even die so that his team can plant the bomb! Tell me if this isn't the best thing a player could do? Give his life and give up having good stats so that his team can succeed? I can't hold back the tears anymore, damn my keyboard is all wet now... I'll have to stop here. TACO <3 And this is why this is an easy match for the best team that ever existed.

Maybe SK fans should wait until the tournament is over to claim that they're top 1 but nah, that would be too logical.
2017-10-25 20:37
Idk why people keep thinking SK will be done. They have the most inteligent IGL and the best player in the world. It should be normal for Faze fans to expect a defeat.

SK and FaZe are currently playing very similar brands of CS. It's just that FalleN always has the edge against karrigan, for some reason.

By creating your own style of play and not imitate, that's why you have the advantage

For some reason? FalleN is 50 times the fragger karriedgan EVER was, and 10 times smarter.

Look nothing against Karrigan but he's not a strategist the only thing he's good at is reading his opponent's in game, he doesn't have sick strats or tactics and unlike Astralism FaZe don't even have crazy fundamentals either they play like any team you will see on FPL pug games. Fallen is better than Karrigan in every way and will always have the edge, Fallen was ranked #2 player in the world last year, Karrigan isn't even top 2000, he's one of the best awpers in the entire world, he's imo the best IGL in the world as well. The super sick thing about this match IMO is SK played FaZe's game and beat them at it, SK didn't have much time to practice with this lineup, imagine when SK actually has time to prepare for FaZe this is going to be a really nice rivalry if SK gets back into consistent form.

Way too easy for SK Gaming, the best team that has ever existed in all versions of Counter Strike. This record-breaking machine, also known as "team", consists of: Gabriel Toledo - Fallen: The best sniper and In-Game Leader that ever existed in this game that people call Counter Strike. Fallen is a beast. When the enemies press TAB and see his name on the other team, they instantly choke and lose all their composure, hence losing the match, just ask Team Liquid and they will tell you all about this. Fernando Alvarenga - Fer: The best player of 2017 so far. His play style is so good that the enemies can't even see where he is on the map. If you think Fer is in one place and you go and check that place you'll find out that he's not there and is actually behind you and by this time you have already been knifed and humiliated by the best lurker that ever played this game. Enemies choke just by seeing his model in-game, just ask TaZ and he will tell you more about it. Ricardo Prass - Boltz: Some people say this guy is the next Coldzera. He is always the best player in every team he plays. He has the chance to prove himself now that he plays for SK. He will get to learn even more from the best Counter Strike player ever: Coldzera. With Boltz on the lineup, the sky is the limit for SK. He is such a versatile player, you know you count on him to be the entry fragger, main rifler, lurker and if he is left alone in a clutch situation you know, you just know, that he will win and bring it home for his team. As Boltz returned to play under the leadership of the greatest IGL of all time, Fallen, we get to see what he is made of, and as always, he won't let us down. Marcelo David - Coldzera: Also known as GODZERA he is without a doubt the best player that ever played this game. Fallen is the best sniper and IGL, but Coldzera... Oh Coldzera, what can I even say about this man? He's like the Messi and CR7 of CS:GO, he's not from this planet. His aim is always on point, his game sense is impecable, he is also the smartest player that ever existed and the most humble one also, because a player of his skill level you'd think that he'd play as the team star or IGL, but no, he plays a support. But Cold (or GOD) can play any role and he'll still be better than 100% of the players. You know why? Because Coldzera has magic! Good players win titles, amazing players break records, Coldzera breaks the rules! You can stay with your stats that I'll stay with the magic! You prefer the stats, I prefer tha magic, I prefer COLDZERA! Epitácio de Melo - TACO: You might get fooled by his stats not being so good as his other 4 teammates, but just watch any SK match and you will see why TACO is the best entry fragger in the world and best solo B player ever. He's so versatile, you can give him any weapon, even an AWP, and put him alone in any B bombsite of any map and he'll humiliate all the players of the other team by his amazing skill and outstanding positioning as well as his out-of-this-world game sense. He's one of the smartest players that ever played this game and you know that. As a Terrorist just put him in front of the line and he'll win dominate the bombsite all by himself, and even die so that his team can plant the bomb! Tell me if this isn't the best thing a player could do? Give his life and give up having good stats so that his team can succeed? I can't hold back the tears anymore, damn my keyboard is all wet now... I'll have to stop here. TACO <3 And this is why this is an easy match for the best team that ever existed.

The fans smash SK if him lost to Heroic (Or RNG 16-0) but when he win ESL One Cologne 2 years in a row is the best team in the world. #ChoroÉLivreEZPZ

Rain is sick and still played better than olof. Olof isn't a bot, he's a brain-dead bot.

Strats & tactics > FPL pug team Well done SK.
2017-10-26 04:49
felps was the problem xD as fallen said they didn't even have time to train with boltz but he is just much better than felps and he knows how to play so i think sk is going to show again that they're top1 for long time :)
2017-10-26 05:31

Disappointing game overall, three one sided maps with FaZe losing the third map through unforced errors. They noticeably cracked under the pressure. With such a good tournament so far, It's a shame the most hyped match turned out to be one of the worst. Not the best Counter-Strike for sure, but SK is looking promising. If FaZe can pick themselves up this event will have amazing playoffs.
