Rogue beat Space Soldiers in FACEIT Major opener
The first match of the event kicked off with Space Soldiers, who are fielding Canpolat "hardstyle" Yıldıran instead of Engin "ngiN" Kor in London due to visa issues, executing B to pick up the first pistol as Terrorists. But after following that up with the anti-ecos, Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli's men could not prevent Rogue from restoring parity at 3-3.
Rogue remained in charge after that, stringing two more rounds together without much effort to take a 5-3 lead. Space Soldiers then finally managed to get back on the board with two successful rounds, equalizing the score once again, 5-5. With a very tight defence, Rogue went on to hit eight rounds before Space Soldiers picked up the pace to bring the deficit to just one round.
Now playing on the CT side, Space Soldiers picked up their second pistol before following that up with the anti-ecos to make it 10-8. Rogue responded well with CZs, forcing the Turks to save in the subsequent round, which allowed the North Americans to level up the score at 10-10.
After that, Rogue continuously broke through their opponents' defence and sealed victory without losing any more rounds to begin their FACEIT Major campaign on the right foot.
