FaZe pull off comeback against SK; advance to the playoffs
After a rought start to the game on Cache, FaZe managed to come back the game and defeat SK, 16-12, and advance to the playoffs with a 3-0 record.
Despite Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács's double kill on the B site defense to start off the game, SK was the team that won the pistol and took the lead early on. FaZe picked up their first buy, but Epitacio "TACO" de Melo's entries in both the fifth and the sixth round saw SK break the European side's economy and go 6-1 up.
Mid was highly contested in the unsueing gun round, but even though FaZe managed to keep hold of it, SK rolled into A, traded kills and allowed Fernando "fer" Alvarenga to clutch it out. After winning with just pistols, Finn "karrigan" Andersen's team finally managed to get on a streak of round wins, with GuardiaN's quad kill in round 12 helping that cause significantly.
FaZe's Slovakian opened up the second pistol round as well, with his two Deagle kills being converted into a round this time, though. After closing out the anti-ecos and bringing the score to 10-8, Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and GuardiaN combined for all five kills, picking apart SK's full buy defences and eventually bringing the match back into even keel.
SK's defenses were getting overwhelmed by FaZe's Terrorist side pace, with Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer getting some key kills as his team took the lead and went 13-10 up. The score was 14-12 when FaZe managed to convert a 4v5 round into a win thanks to karrigan stepping up with a triple. The European side completed their T-side comeback shortly, winning the match 16-12.
