NiP best MIBR; Astralis seal 5-0 record over FaZe
Astralis won the first pistol round cleanly against FaZe on Dust2, but they were unable to follow it up despite Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander killing three players in a 1vs3 before the bomb exploded. Astralis then made it 2-1, but a triple by Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács with desert eagle headshots kept both teams tied. FaZe then took the early lead, 5-2, after the game started to settle, but the Danes tied it back up after ten rounds. Once again, FaZe were able to give one last push taking the last four rounds to close the half 9-6.
Astralis then took the T-side pistol round, and tied it up against two forcebuys, 9-9, as Nicolai "device" Reedtz was able to win a 1vs2 on the second one. Both teams then stayed neck and neck, but it was finally the Danes who were able to close it out late in the match, edging past their opponents 16-13.
