FaZe crush EnVyUs; mousesports survive Valiance scare in DH Marseille opener

FaZe beat EnVyUs 16-1 on Cache to pick up their first victory at DreamHack Masters Marseille, while mousesports have defeated Valiance 16-13 on Mirage.

Starting out as Counter-Terrorists on Cache, FaZe picked up a quick 3-0 lead after securing a flawless CT pistol. Envy responded well in the first gun round, but Finn "karrigan" Andersen's men immediately reset the Frenchmen's economy and further added to their lead.

Down 1-8, Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer called for a tactical pause, but it was not enough for them to find a way to break through FaZe's defence. Envy looked set to win their second round after Ali "hAdji" Haïnouss had found three opponents in the 13th round, but Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács crushed their hopes with a 1v3 clutch.

FaZe kick off their Marseille run on the right foot

After taking a whopping 14-1 lead, FaZe picked up the second pistol round thanks to a 1v2 clutch from Richard "Xizt" Landström. After that, there was little that Envy could do to stop FaZe from running away with the game.

Meanwhile, mousesports took on Valiance on Mirage, and the European mixture opening up the action on their T-side with a successful A execution. After following that up with the anti-ecos, mousesports kept stringing rounds together without much response from their opponents.

It was only in the eighth round that Valiance managed to pick up their first round of the game. Still, mousesports did not let their opponents follow up on any round wins, and went on to bag a dominant 13-2 half-time lead.

mousesports will take on the winner of the match between SK and NiP

But Valiance did not want to throw in the towel, and Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač kicked things off with a triple-kill, helping his team to win their Terrorist pistol. After that, Valiance went on a massive run, winning round after round to equalize the score at 13-13.

After losing 11 rounds in a row, however, mousesports were finally able to put a stop to Valiance's momentum, and they followed that up with two more rounds to seal a surprisingly hard-fought win.

Mouz fucked themselves by picking to start T after winning the knife. T by far has the best possibilities of a comeback due to how the economy works. By starting T they basically gave Valliance the change to pull a 180. They should trust more in their mirage.

If you think one player on that team is to blame you're out of your mind. The whole team is just lost so they're all playing like shit. Kio is the best player on that team.

Yeah it's almost as if he's demotivated by being on a terrible team. If you think one game paints the picture of an entire player then you're an idiot. RPK is close but he's incosistent, Scream is all aim and no brain, Happy hasn't been good since the lurk meta died and Hadji is decent but underqualified for this level of CS. Kio is the best player on EnvyUs. The only thing to take away from this game is that Envy is lost as a team.
