FaZe beat Na`Vi to secure final spot in Boston

FaZe are the first grand finalist of ELEAGUE Major Boston after defeating Natus Vincere 2-0 (16-9 on Inferno, 16-7 on Mirage) in the New Champions Stage's semi-finals.

The first semi-final of the Major kicked off on Inferno, Natus Vincere's map pick, with a triple-kill from Nikola "NiKo" Kovač helping FaZe to secure their CT-side pistol. Surprisingly, the Ukrainians forced for two straight rounds, without any luck, with FaZe increasing their lead to 5-0. 

It was thanks to a 1v2 clutch from Egor "flamie" Vasilyev that Natus Vincere got their first round on the board. Still, they could not follow it up and had to deal with an economic reset, with FaZe setting themselves up for an 8-1 lead.

That was a wake-up call for Natus Vincere, who finally managed to string rounds together thanks to a 1v2 clutch and a triple-kill from Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev in the following two rounds. That was the start of a good run from the Ukrainian team, who brought the deficit to a minimum.

Finn "karrigan" Andersen's squad would not let a comeback, however, and switched to the Terrorist side determined to regain control of the game. After winning the pistol round and both anti-ecos, FaZe ran all over the Na`Vi defence and lost just two rounds before locking down the map.

NiKo & co. are through to the Major grand final

FaZe's map pick, Mirage, started with s1mple securing the CT pistol for his team with a 1v3 clutch, and following that up with two more triple-kills in the subsequent anti-ecos. But after buying up, the landscape of the game changed dramatically as FaZe quickly turned things around.

Even though Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko came up huge in the sixth round by finding four enemies with nothing but CZs, the European mixture instantly responded with a trio of successful rounds. After that, FaZe continued to hold Natus Vincere back, losing only one more round to bag a 10-5 half-time lead.

In the second half, Natus Vincere found a lifeline in the series after picking up the pistol round. However, that would to be too little, too late, as FaZe quickly wrapped things up to book their place in the ELEAGUE Major grand final.

Guardian had insane impact that second map Niko and olof have continued great form throughout the tournament, and rain has stepped it up in playoffs I have to say flamie and edwards performances have been disappointing considering the rest of the tournament. After they didnt show up individually on inferno they looked so out of it on mirage

Man enough of Edward already. You can't not show up for that role. Who wouldn't go to a site solely defended by him and zeus?
2018-01-28 00:11
NiKo MVP thus far
2018-01-28 00:11
Wot? Actually it’s Olof. Been at the top for every single game
2018-01-28 01:18
In the games that I watched, NiKo won some crazy clutch rounds, that's why I think he's the MVP thus far. But thats just my opinion :)
2018-01-28 01:20
fair enough. I could only watch the games in the beginning (where olof did those things) and the last games through statistics. Maybe 50/50 between them then and the final will decide? :)
2018-01-28 01:52
Yeah, thats for sure hahaha
2018-01-28 01:57
IF they win ofcourse .. haha
2018-01-28 01:58
I really think they will tho. That's their best chance atleast.

FaZe somehow avoids playing against any top teams again. Have they ever made it past the group stage when they had to play against anything but shit teams?
2018-01-28 04:03
It is easy vs Faze. Guardian should be happy he got out from Na'Vi
2018-01-28 07:34
what a boring and one-sided game, navi didn't even try sk vs fnatic probably is the best match on this major
