FaZe win EPICENTER over Natus Vincere

FaZe have broken their title duck with a triumph over Natus Vincere in the EPICENTER 2018 grand final (2-0; Mirage 16-12, Dust2 16-3).

The grand final began on FaZe's pick, Mirage, where Natus Vincere's star duo got off to a great start as they combined for five in the pistol round, retaking the A bombsite without losing anyone.

However, the European mixture started setting a quick pace to the match from the first gunround on, converting several quick A plays, leaving little for Na`Vi as they racked up an 8-2 lead on the back of that momentum. Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko & co. finally replied with three out of the last five rounds, though they still gave up a 3v1 to Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács's fantastic AWP play in the B bombsite before sides switched.

FaZe pick up their first title since June and their first in 2018 with olofmeister in the roster

FaZe extended their lead to 12-5 with the second pistol going their way, though this time, the first gunround went the other way and Na`Vi closed the gap to four. The home favorites attempted to come back, but some individual plays, including a triple and a 1v1 from Håvard "rain" Nygaard and a quad-kill from Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer, helped FaZe reach 14 rounds.

After saving their guns a couple of times in a row, the European side closed things out with successful retakes on each bombsite, taking a lead in the series after a 16-12 win on the opener.

FaZe continued their momentum on Dust2, getting up to a 5-0 lead with Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and olofmeister making key plays for the squad. Natus Vincere managed to grab a couple of rounds, but they could not string them together, as they got reset by 1v2 clutches from the aforementioned Bosnian and Swede after each win.

On the back of the heroics, FaZe extended their lead to 11-2 and soon finalized the half with a 12-3 scoreline. With a second pistol round in the bag as well, it was only a matter of time until Finn "karrigan" Andersen's squad emerged victorious at 16-3, 2-0.

Not at all. I mean, I never meant FaZe are the best. I just said, if FaZe get back to their peak, only Astralis came tame them. Obviously Astralis is Top1 and are playing impressively well.

2018-10-29 21:36
Of all my time on HLTV I have never seen a bigger Astralis dick rider. It’s sad that you don’t get paid for this pathetic shaft sucking. They should hire you to give them a BJ before every game.

Yes. Wish Niko & co. will deliver as a team in IEM katwoice major & win it. I wanna see Guardian & karrigan win their first major. It feels sad to see both of them having no major when they're nearing the end of their careers (maybe 4-5 years for guardian). I felt like crying when I saw guardian in hopeless 1v3 clutch in inferno last round in Boston Major

2018-10-29 19:20
Not even a bit, Astralis is so much better than NaVi Liquid and Faze. There is no Team which can beat them constantly
2018-10-28 18:46
'IF FaZe are back to what they used to be...' Read maybe???
2018-10-28 18:46
I did? Even if Faze plays like this tournament they cant compare with astralis, there on a complete other level
2018-10-28 18:47
Ehm kid please.... IEM Sydney 0:3 with xizt instead of olof, but yeah faze can’t be compared with astralis.
2018-10-28 19:00
So what? Didnt win a Single Map against astralis after this. And all the games in sydney were extremely close
2018-10-28 19:00
Faze is the team who was toughest to beat for Astralis at Faceit major despite Niko taking IGL role literally few days ago. If Niko establish and prove himself as IGL (potentially -karrigan + better player) Astralis should be indeed scared tbh
2018-10-28 19:02
Doesn't matter, Astralis still 2-0'ed them NiP were the only Team besides Liquid that Managed to take a map from Astralis
2018-10-28 19:02
Ok you are just being stupid ignorant Astralis fan fag, who thinks they will be winning forever. Bye
2018-10-28 19:05
He's dumb leave him alone. When you say FaZe beat them 3-0 at IEM Sydney, they'll say ''It was close, could've gone either way!!!11''. Also when you say the same thing just the other way around at the Faceit Major, Astralis fans are like ''Blah blah FaZe overrated, ez for Astralis'', even tho FaZe could've knock them out at the Major.

2018-10-29 12:21

kinda pathetic that you have to go back 6 months! for a final that could have gone either way so deffo not a sweeping as you claim.. and since then Astralis has won numerous titles including a major and has completely destroyed faze every time they met.. so nt bro xD

@clutchkongen like you said ime sydney could of gone either way, I would say like the major, like when they played in ecs, in esl pro league, like one more tournament before the major and the only time astralis dominated was in the eleague premier I think and one of the maps in the pro league(16:7 if i remember).All other times it was really close games.Even Na'Vi and Liquid are destroyed almost every game with astralis so .. it's not correct what you say.FaZe are the only team that can beat Astralis anywehre anytime.Even in interviews Astralis members said that FaZe are the most dangareous team that they can face :)

0/8 The only tier 1 team that was missing was astralis , and to be fair the FaZe we saw today , both against liquid and na'vi could have beaten astralis aswell...

2018-10-28 18:51
Nope , astralis>FaZe any day , this was just a masive overpreformance by FaZe that will probably fade once we reach the next tourney , just sayin this FaZe from today could beat astralis if they ever overperform against them like this...

FaZe from bots to gods overnight... Okay then. Also, s1v9mple is back. Edward definitely has to go. Both electronic & flamie had a bad series, but we know the firepower is there. On the other hand, Edward has no more excuses to be on the roster. He is just straight dragging the team down. All the respect for him, he's a legend in the game, but he really needs to go.

2018-10-28 18:47
Unexpected win from FaZe to be honest. I thought that they can take out Liquid, but predicted that it will be NaVi 2-0 in GF. Great work! NaVi should work on their low morale problems, when they cannon get back into the mood. It happens very rarely, but looks really bad. It costed them Major Final and Epicenter final lately. It wasn't about tactics, it wasn't about aim, they just didn't really start playing.

Well that's one more proof that you can carry while ingame leading, and also one more proof that karrigan is shit. What's his excuse now?
2018-10-28 19:00
They fucking won why do u blame him lol
2018-10-28 19:05
You didnt get the point obviously.
2018-10-28 19:07
He cant see that karrigan is a bot...and they should bench him already and get a better player

Karrigan is playing really well lately.Actually when he is not busy with the IGL role he can be a great fragger.

2018-10-28 19:03
Another final, another loss and yet another MVP for s1mple
2018-10-28 19:11
dogshit in the final, why would he get MVP
2018-10-28 19:12
He still performed best overall during the whole tournament but Niko got the MVP anyways
2018-10-28 19:39
FaZe played more maps and faced better teams, s1mple farmed stats in group stage and against AVANGAR then played mediocre when it counted the most. Oh, and NiKo got his stats while IGLing as well. This was the easiest MVP pick ever
2018-10-28 19:58
I guess when you put it like that you're right lmao :)
2018-10-28 20:10
Guardian was putting in work. Niko was a monster as usual. But one thing most people are missing rn is olof is slowly returning to his godlike form. He is the master of mid round decisions. And if he returns to his 2015 form, faze will be one hell of a scary roster.

Well when its 4 horsemen of apocalypse show up at the same time, FaZe can basically run through anyone... And they did.

I presume karrigan is not one of those horsemen?
2018-10-29 17:32
Well even if he clearly played better than the monthes before, ( btw he can make a very good support because he has decent firepower and is usually very smart ingame ) , and 3 of the 4 had a dip down lately, I guess it's pretty obvious he doesn't match their firepower..

Why people cares a lot of the MVP?
2018-10-28 20:13
Because a player with more mvps more higher ranking,in top 20 For example device was major mvp so he probably will be top 1
2018-10-29 17:23
If i was Astralis i would be scared right now.

>thinks edward is unfairly blaimed for losses >copy pastes edward bottomfragging I get what you're saying though, they all underperformed, or rather got outplayed by Fazes memebers. But in reality Edward does that WAY more often than flamie and especially electronic
2018-10-29 05:48
olof the goat of cs go is reking noobs feels good to watch faze matches again
2018-10-28 20:37
Kudos for faze, surely thought they had almost no chance after poor games first days and overall rough form lately but I suppose once again we saw it is not about how you start the event but how you end it, GG WP, very well deserved :).

s1mple only plus k/d diff. s1mple is best player in CS history
2018-10-29 01:10
he was 11\17 in grandfinal xD unluko maluko
2018-10-29 09:05
Lol Na'vi had a little 2 month period where they could actually win tier 2 events, now it's back to choking in finals like their entire CS Go history. I was watching the game btw and s1mple did literally nothing I don't give a fuck what his stats say he had no impact on this game.

Better to have no impact and good stats than no impact and bad stats then. Even though we both know s1mple had by far the most impact of anyone on Navi in the final
2018-10-29 05:46
So he had none which is more than none alright. This wasn't even competitive idk what you watched but it wasn't the same game I watched FaZe didn't even play that good, Astralis would shit on them with that level they were playing in that finals.
