FaZe beat Renegades; Liquid take down Cloud9

FaZe beat Renegades on Train,16-14, to go 2-0 in their first two matches, while Liquid defeated Cloud9 on Inferno,16-8, in their BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles opener.

FaZe took the lead on Train against Renegades on the attacking side as Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács found four CTs. The European team started out cleanly with a 3-0 lead. Once guns were in play, Renegades managed to get two rounds, but were then down in a 2vs5 on the sixth round and unable to tie it up. Aaron "AZR" Ward and company were finally able to turn it around once they built an economy, however, going on to clear the map round after round against FaZe all the way to a 10-5 half.

FaZe were able to close out Train on the CT side

The second half kicked off with Jay "Liazz" Tregillgas getting four kills to secure the pistol round for Renegades, but FaZe managed to close the gap early in the second half by winning the forcebuy and two more rounds to follow before the first gun round. Up by one,11-10, Renegades were finally able to get back on the board as Justin "jks" Savage won a 1vs2 afterplant on A against GuardiaN and Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer. It was finally FaZe, however, who on the CT side were able to bring it back after grinding rounds out rounds, closing it 16-14.

Four kills by Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken helped expedite the first pistol round on Inferno for Liquid, on the Terrorist side. Three Desert Eagle headshots by Tyson "TenZ" Ngo weren’t enough for Cloud9 to take the forcebuy. Abusing the A site, Liquid were able to overrun the defenders and plant on the first gun round, to push their lead to 4-0. It was finally in the fifth, with three kills by Damian "daps" Steele, that Cloud9 were able to get on the board, but Nick "nitr0" Cannella and Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski then won a 2vs2 afterplant situation on A to keep the momentum on their side.

Up 7-1, Liquid were able to win a 3vs5 afterplant on B to keep rolling over Cloud9. daps and company were finally able to string two rounds together with a 1vs3 followed by a 1vs1 clutch by the Canadian in-game leader, and put a cushion between themselves and Liquid to close the half out 6-9.

Liquid beat their North American rivals in their opening match

Liquid increased their lead on the second half after the second pistol round as Keith "NAF" Markovic took down three. On the first gun round, Jake "Stewie2K" Yip won a 1vs2 in an afterplant situation against Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas and Timothy "autimatic" Ta to keep Liquid ahead, 12-6. Cloud9 were able to get two more rounds in regulation, but it was Liquid who were in control of the match the whole time, closing it out 16-8 after a 2vs2 afterplant win by EliGE and Twistzz against autimatic and Kenneth "koosta" Suen.
