FaZe to Major semis over mouz

FaZe are through to the semi-finals at the ELEAGUE Major after beating mousesports 2-0 (19-16 on Nuke and 16-9 on Cache).

mousesports and FaZe squared off in the first quarter-final match at the ELEAGUE Major's New Champions Stage. The series kicked off on Nuke which was picked by mousesports. FaZe started on the CT-side and picked up the first three rounds. mousesports won the following two weapon rounds with Chris "chrisJ" de Jong and Robin "ropz" Kool's opening kills (3-2).

mousesports tied the game but couldn't take the lead as FaZe won a 3vs4 with Nikola "NiKo" Kovač's triple kill. ropz got two entry kills on the A-site in the following round and reset FaZe's economy (4-4). Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný's team won the next weapon round to make it 7-4 and went on to win the half 9-6.

FaZe are in the semi-finals

Just like they did in the first half, FaZe won the first three rounds in the second half but lost the first weapon round as mousesports led 10-9. FaZe grabbed three more rounds to lead 12-10 but mousesports' defense tightened up and they managed to get two map points.

FaZe won 2vs4s in the last two rounds to take the map to overtime. NiKo & company lost the first round of overtime but responded with four rounds in a row to wrap up the first map 19-16.

mouz are out of the Major

FaZe's map pick was Cache and Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács's team started on the T-side. Finn "karrigan" Andersen & company won the first five rounds but couldn't make it 6-0 as ropz and Miikka "suNny" Kemppi's kills put mousesports on the board (5-1). Even though FaZe responded in the next round, they couldn't start a streak as mouz got their second round (6-2).

mousesports came close to tying the game but NiKo got an opening kill in the twelfth round, paving the way for FaZe to make it 7-5. NiKo finished the half with an ace as his team led 10-5.

ropz got a quad kill in the second half pistol round and another one in the following round where mousesports were in a 2vs5 situation (10-7). After losing another round, FaZe recovered in the weapon round thanks to NiKo's triple kill (11-8). FaZe closed out the map 16-9 and won the series 2-0 to advance to semi-finals at the ELEAGUE Major 2018.

We, speaking as a nation. And the brazilian football teams didnt won any world cup.

You cant speak as a nation since its not an achievement that the whole nation got. Its an achievement that only the players got. The rest did nothing.

Most people criticize him in Brazil. Your generalization is stupid.
2018-01-26 23:11
Where is my generalization? I only told him he isnt part of a team that won so he shouldnt speak like he won. I never said all brazilians do this.

2018-01-26 20:24
Throooin will probably recieve death sentence even though most Brazilians think the punishment is too harsh. Also mouz is in trouble when Oscar and Chris is at the bottom.
2018-01-26 19:57
No one is blaming thorin,no one suports kng.What's the problems with every non-brazilian and why hate us?
2018-01-26 20:07
Dude, search the forums. Search the comments on thorin's twitter, youtube, and facebook. I guarantee you will see.

Lets be honest, mouz would loose 1-2 anyway, but i felt really sad after that throw on nuke. They reached what they want, time to move on and keep improving map pool i guess. I often bash styko, but i think he played pretty good game, esp on CT side nuke (except that last round where he didnt hold niko in vent :P). Oskar sadly wasnt there in his top form.

Overall i think mouz can count this as pretty good result.
2018-01-26 20:08
overall yes, but I think they won't forget those countless missplays on nuke

Will be hard for Mouz to overcome these mental problems. Oskars bad showings in games that matter the most... Choke against QBF and this choke against FaZe in Nuke. Sad but true
2018-01-26 20:54
sorry sunny. you tried. shame oskar and chris didnt show up. chris was in great form leading up to the match (haven't looked at stats but from matches iv watched lately hes been great)
