Vitality ease past FaZe into 2-0 pool in Berlin
A trio of USP kills by Cédric "RpK" Guipouy in an A flank in the pistol round set Vitality up for an explosive start to the game. The French team, who started out on the CT side, dictated the pace of the game during the early stages as FaZe looked a far cry from the team that had dominated mousesports the day before, averaging just one kill per round and failing to plant the bomb a single time during the first six rounds of the game.
FaZe finally ended Vitality's streak ten rounds into the game, but the pattern of the game remained the same. The European mixture was outgunned and outclassed for the rest of the half as the French giants cruised to a 13-2 lead.
More misery was heaped on FaZe's players as Vitality took the second half pistol after charging through catwalk unpunished. A successful force-buy in the second half still gave FaZe's fans some hopes, but a comeback was not on the cards. Vitality hit match point on the back of an A split before putting the game to rest a couple of rounds later with a quad-kill from Alex "ALEX" McMeekin.
