FaZe secured a confident 2-0 victory over Space Soldiers (16-9 Inferno, 16-6 Mirage), to claim the first place in group A and move on to the playoffs.

Inferno, Space Soldiers' pick, started off with FaZe clearing out the B bombsite on the retake, but without enough time to actually defuse the bomb. The Turkish side went on to grab a 4-0 T-side lead after that before Finn "karrigan" Andersen's mid-push with a saved M4A4 worked out, resulting in three kills for the Dane and a round for FaZe.

Space Soldiers were quick to strike back and follow the round up to break FaZe's economy, with Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli's ace on the A apartments explosion proving crucial. The score was 8-1 before Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács secured FaZe's second with the help of Jorgen "cromen" Robertsen, who would put up a great A site defense with his countryman Håvard "rain" Nygaard in the next couple of rounds.

The European mixture managed to bring the score back to 8-7 for the halftime, then Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş's triple earned his team the second pistol, but FaZe would soon return to the driver's seat as a pistol-armor buy worked out perfectly. Space Soldiers opted for a gamble-stack in the first buy round, but it didn't pay off, and FaZe followed that round win up with some fast plays towards A, which the Turkish side was unable to shut down.

karrigan's squad didn't give up the pressure as the game came to a close, finishing the T side with nine consecutive rounds to win Inferno 16-9.

cromen was immensely impactful on Inferno

On Mirage, FaZe got off to a 3-0 start but were stopped in their tracks by Space Soldiers' first rifle round, as the Turks got give unanswered kills, shutting down the mid control attempt. The score was equalized at 3-3 when GuardiaN secured a double-entry, but Ahmet "paz" Karahoca replied with a quick 3K to shut down the B site approach and later on added two more to complete the ace.

rain's CT spawn sneak-in destroyed Space Soldiers' A site defense, giving FaZe their first buy round (4-5), with his team continuing to focus on A in the next rounds to get back into the lead. FaZe strung together six T-rounds before the end of the half, finishing it 9-6 up. After the switch, Nikola "NiKo" Kovač managed a near-unwinnable 1v3 on the B site to extend his team's lead, with FaZe being 11-6 up when Space Soldiers afforded their first buy.

AWPs from karrigan and GuardiaN rang true as FaZe picked off their opponents to get to 14, and it didn't take long for them to close out the map 16-6, finishing the series with a perfect CT half.
