Natus Vincere who were on the CT-side won the pistol round but FaZe responded with six rounds in a row. Even though Natus Vincere picked up two rounds to trail 6-3, FaZe ran away with the half to win it 12-3.

rain was the main man against Natus Vincere

Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer & company started their CT-side campaign with the pistol round victory and went on to close out the game 16-4, qualifying for the next stage of the tournament.

Let's be honest, vega is just pushing smokes like retards, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. they were lucky that it worked on that game, I doubt they could repeat it in bo3.

I don't understand people like you. Faze has a new team, what do you expect. Give them some time and then you can judge
2018-01-15 21:09
new team in what? they been playing cs for a long time my friend, they know what to do
2018-01-15 22:12
every team has ups and downs and in epic centre Rainmosta was so sick, and as far as i know Olof wasn't in his full conscious at ESL pro league finals. they had only played two bo3 with this new line up, they're grinding and getting better. Hopefully we'll get to see some good results in Major.

It's about teamplay mate. Not only about individuals. And at this point Faze can still improve a lot. I have a lot of respect for sk, but It seems like you guys don't want to acknowledge the capabilities of others. Or it's just basic trashtalk because it's the typical toxic cs community

Might be a tough match for both teams, and I would love to see FaZe win that game, but I'm really tired of hltv users simply gloring/fangaying and overhyping FaZe. They are not a superteam, they never said they are.

yah but they lost to vega in this tournament played pretty bad vs against team liquid with zews... telling me that their form is kind of shit
2018-01-15 20:09
Telling me the competetive level of nowadays CS. So many teams that can upset and the level is so close that often it's up to wich team is fired up today and playing wich confidence and wich team don't. There are no unbeatable teams today.. But some are concistently better than others. Faze are in good enough form to win the whole major, and so is SK and a few others. Buy plenty of teams are good enough to upset.. ecpesially in BO1
2018-01-15 22:36

2018-01-15 20:08
As I said in another topic, Navi is the kind of team that Faze eats alive: too easy to read, with poor CT mix ups in terms of agression. The whole Navi game plan as ct was to pick up a double awp and hope for the best.
2018-01-15 20:10
if you have zeus top fragging in your team you are really fucked

Navi lost their biggest strength - chemistry . when simple came. If they just swapped Seized with electronic before that, they would be still a top 10 team, this is not, and will never work for them... They are adjusting their whole strat/positioning, just to accommodate s1mple, it wont work, cs is team based game. Fragging and stats are not the whole story, just look at the Astralis, device is by stats their best player, but also their weakest point, all their sucsess came because Dupreeh/Xyp9x are delivering when needed. And also look how Astralis plays 10X better and more dynamic/confident cs with dennis instead of device for example

But ... but... fanbois tell me that s1mple's stats are sooooo great and he is not the problem !? I like your analysis though and agree with it. By the way here is a typical " s1mple carry " when the guys he faces have top tier firepower..
