Astralis eliminate FaZe at BLAST Pro Series
Astralis came out on top in the chaotic first pistol round and picked up the following anti-eco for a slated 2-0 start, before FaZe turned things around on their third round buy, winning three in a row, the Danes then firing back to even things out 3-3.
Astralis' stout defense held off Finn "karrigan" Andersen his men for three more, but a quick push on B with Tec-9's from FaZe snapped the streak (4-6). Unphased, the Danes got right back to it, winning the next four out of five rounds to secure the 10-5 half.
In the second half, Astralis added to their lead by securing the pistol as Terrorists, but Nikola "NiKo" Kovač responded with a triple kill using the Deagle, which granted FaZe their seventh round of the game.
FaZe looked to pick up their second in a row, but Astralis' aggressive approach on the T-side paid off to break FaZe's momentum, which allowed the Danes to win five straight, locking down Overpass 16-7.
