Vitality ease past FaZe into 2-0 pool in Berlin

Vitality extended their perfect start to the New Legends Stage with a commanding victory over FaZe on Dust2.

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.

Vitality hardly broke a sweat to defeat FaZe

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.

and yet neo far lower rating. why? because neo picking up irrelevant frags (1k on pistols when they got destroyed, like 5k on t side in rounds with no chance to win, 5k vs deagles etc.) low impact kills, shit strats
2019-08-29 19:51
Still bro he played better than the other 2 bots rain and olof.... Olof got destroyed.in his lurk and Rain was 0 kills for half the match

Yeah it is , like second best at least , mirage probably best. But it's one of those maps FaZe is comfortable picking , they have great t sides on it , and ct side is also great with the double awp if NiKo hitting shots. Today was just not their day , no one was doing good on FaZe...
2019-08-29 22:23
It was it or vertigo and im pretty sure this is Faze's perma ban

2019-08-29 19:57
NBK and Apex were top frag against Grayhound (NBK) and North (Apex). Try again retard fan
2019-08-29 21:23
do you really consider North and grayhound a good team? wtf is wrong with all these French faggots stop being so dumb.... hltv should ban French people such a dumb country.... #FforFrenchfaggots

When will people understand that it's a star player team based. Their main goal is to put ZyWoo in the front line so he gets all the frags? That's a viable play style so Zywoo can carry
