FaZe defeat fnatic to secure first win

FaZe have picked up their first victory in the ELEAGUE Major Boston's New Legends Stage after defeating fnatic 16-8 on Cache.

Starting out as Terrorists, FaZe began the match with a flawless T-side pistol before easily picking up the following anti-ecos. The European mixture then won the first gun round, but fnatic responded with Deagle double-kills from Maikil "Golden" Selim and Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson to get their first round on the board. 

After losing two more rounds, FaZe brought the Swedes' streak to an end, with Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács then clutching a 1v2 post-plant situation, they managed to break fnatic's economy. After that, Finn "karrigan" Andersen's men easily picked up a 9-3 lead.

olofmeister led the charge for FaZe

In the following round, it seemed like FaZe had crushed fnatic's hopes with a 2v4 clutch from Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and Håvard "rain" Nygaard, but the Swedish team refused to throw in the towel. Thanks to a successful CZ-buy in the 14th round, fnatic were able to reduce the deficit to 5-10 before switching sides.

fnatic began the second half by winning the pistol round and then hitting the eight-hour mark despite FaZe's efforts with pistols. From that point, however, olofmeister and co. were simply too hot for their opponents to handle, and quickly wrapped things up as they took the map, 16-8.

Don't get this rating system sometimes. How does going 15-13 when your team wins 16-8 equate to a 1.26 rating? When you have 67 adr at that (I know he awps its still low)
2018-01-19 21:03
clutches, multi kills and KAST affects the rating aswell not just the ADR an K/D
2018-01-19 21:07
He had a very high KAST rating and some impactful rounds (like that 1v2 clutch).
2018-01-19 21:12
Yeah what I'm getting at is that having an 80% KAST on a blowout win doesn't say much imho. At the end of the day, statistically speaking hes 15-13 with the least assists and damage on his team. I'm not saying hes bad or anything, I just don't see how that performance warrants such a high rating.
