FaZe beat Renegades; Liquid take down Cloud9
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.
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.
