FaZe knock out mousesports to join 1-2 pool

MIRAA
September 14th, 2018 22:54

FaZe live to fight another day at the FACEIT Major after defeating mousesports 16-8 on Mirage.

Chris "chrisJ" de Jong opened up the action in the final match of the day with a trio of kills in a flank attempt, helping mousesports to take an early lead. They followed that up with the corresponding anti-ecos for a 3-0 start, but FaZe hit back in the first gun round with a B split, punishing the CTs' passive setup.

With a stunning quad-kill by Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács, FaZe prevented the reset and took control of the economy, eventually securing the lead at 4-3. mousesports still tried to get back in the game, but every round won by them was immediately countered by Finn "karrigan" Andersen's troops, who closed out the half with a 10-5 lead.

FaZe remain in contention

Now playing on the CT side, FaZe won the pistol round with an A retake to further add to their lead. mousesports went for a risky force-buy, a move that paid off as they broke through the defence thanks to their two AKs, with Miikka "suNny" Kemppi pulling off a massive 1v4 clutch in the next round.

mousesports followed that up with another round, bringing the deficit to 8-11, but FaZe brought that streak to an end thanks to a trio of AWP kills by Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer. That round broke mouz's resistance and swung the tide back in the favour of FaZe, who would remain in the driving seat to seal a quick 16-8 triumph.

What I like the most about him is that even when everybody knows he's a huge star, he's humble enough to admit Niko is the main star of the team. In yesterday's match against Navi Olof saved an AK and he dropped it to Niko instead of playing it himself. Not a lot of former wordls best players do that

In this game? Yes. But they were playing better with cromen. Olof surely is better than cromen on paper but he hasn't shown it yet after his comeback other than this game. Hopefully this is the start.
2018-09-15 03:36
Cromen was better as a support/lurker yes. But olof can be better in awping or being entry fragger. And rain isnt performing well. They should make rain lurker and olof main rifler
2018-09-15 06:16
Should actually replace rain rather than olof and just give him a larger role overall.
2018-09-15 08:56
Yes Get another lurker if rain cant do shit Maybe cromen only

2018-09-14 23:01
I think the internals in the team are fucked up. They never look happy. Oskar seems like he’s rather doing something else and his possible bad attitude might have big negative impact on young players like sunny and ropz. Snax didnt ruin anything, give him like half a year extra and if he then fails to deliver he can take blame. They need a roster change anyways. Rumours about sunny/oskar leaving.

Poor mouz, this major was very unfair for them, look what they had to play against... And now they will have to qualify all the way up. Very unlucky and unfair.

No its not unfair. look at faze and nip results they 2loses team this series. Its just mouz more bad than anyteam

May be -oskar +byali? I mean, oskar doesn't carry and ChrisJ can do a really good job with an AWP, so why not?

Because byali is trash & there's a lot better players you can bring in. The only reason for getting byali is to assist snax with chemistry, but what's the point when he's trash too?

Fine match, ChrisJ and Oskar played well and beautyfull, lots of kills at precious times... other teammembers didnt't always follow up. Nice to see Olof back in a decent level, awping was awesome, and best of all he smiled !!! Niko is just on another level than everyone else……. looking forward to next match
