FaZe edge out EG to complete IEM playoffs bracket

FaZe have come out on top of a nail-biting deciding series against Evil Geniuses (2-1; Nuke 16-12, Inferno 14-16, Dust2 19-16) to complete the playoffs bracket at IEM Beijing.

After meeting in the opening round of the group stage, FaZe and Evil Geniuses were set to clash again for the second spot in Group B, with the European side once again picking Nuke to start the series, which had turned out successfully for them the first time around.

A scrappy, fast-paced start of the match saw Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz's team get off to the better start on the defense despite losing the pistol round, a 3v1 situation to Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer, and a 5v3, as some key breaking points including a forcebuy win and clutches from Ethan "Ethan" Arnold and Tarik "tarik" Celik allowed them to amass an 8-3 lead.

FaZe beat EG the second time in a much closer affair

Another 1v3 from Nikola "NiKo" Kovač swung the late stages of the first half in favor of FaZe, who went over to the second half with six rounds to their name and soon found themselves in the lead on the back of a fruitful start on their own defense. A halfbuy win and Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte and Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov's 2v5 leveled the score as neither team looked in control until it was 12-12, when FaZe put their foot down with a four-round streak to secure a series lead.

Inferno began with the first three rounds going back and forth, with Evil Geniuses coming out on top of the forcebuy shenanigans to go up 5-1. FaZe responded with an eco round victory in the seventh round, courtesy of NiKo's spectacular quad-kill, and went on to equalize the scoreline at 6-6 before Ethan's ace swung the rest of the half in the North American team's favor.

EG extended their lead to five with a second pistol round win, but once Marcelo "coldzera" David's side got a hold of weaponry, they closed the gap to just one. As the map reached the late stages, the two teams started to trade rounds back and forth, with FaZe looking like slight favorites once olofmeister clutched two 1v2s to reach 14 rounds and put their opponents on a low buy. However, a win with just pistols swayed the momentum and Evil Geniuses held on to the series with a 16-14 triumph.

EG couldn't capitalize on their triumph at StarSeries, going out in 5th-6th

Dust2 was left as the decider and it started out streaky, with Evil Geniuses' great 5-0 start answered by a three-round run by FaZe's double AWP setup on the CT side. The remainder of the half was mostly in Chet "ImAPet" Singh's team's control, who managed to clinch five out of the last seven rounds for a comfortable 10-5 half.

Helvijs "broky" Saukants and NiKo combined for five in the second pistol round, while olofmeister saved the antiforce with a 1v2 clutch. That allowing FaZe to open the second half with a dominant run that ended at seven in a row, as Evil Geniuses finally got on the board and retook the lead after CeRq saved a scary 1v4 attempt from the Latvian. Neither team could finish off the job in regulation from there on, as the deciding map went to overtime. There, FaZe picked up a convincing couple of rounds on each side on the back of multikills from Håvard "rain" Nygaard, coldzera, and olofmeister, emerging victorious from the nail-biting finish at 19-16.

2019-11-08 20:32
nope EU stands for European Union as there are to capital letters referring to the fact that it is a abbreviation. Overseeing the fact that there are no dots between them eu is also seen as European Union because most of the people in this world are not so god damn lazy that they won't type Europa fully.

Go back to school guys.

Everything else that matters? So a working social system, good and affordable healthcare, human rights etc.? I think Europe might be better than the US in more aspects than you can fathom.

Sadly Vitality goes 1st. It would be insane if Astralis had to win EG in semis and FaZe in GrandFinal.

Yep. Vitality has chances to win the tournament, but I just don´t see this good cs of them like I see in FaZe and Astralis atm.
2019-11-08 14:45
There is no doubt, EG - Faze - Fnatic & Astralis are the top #1 contenders... I don't see Vitality going for top #1 at their current form
2019-11-08 14:49
- natic. They are top 10 but their not a dominant super power rn. Id put them 6-8

I see Liquid with more chances to beat these top tier teams and winning a tournament even now than Vitality.
2019-11-08 15:10
Between Astralis, Vitality and Faze, all of them deserved the spots they have. Faze won't feel too bad since I remembered that the team is looking to gain more experience before going for win. They've been amazing.

Astralis are the better team overall and tactically speaking, but FaZe firepower is insane! Over and over they won a round they shouldnt won because of individual play. NiKo, Cold, and Olof is best player on the world on their time and all of them show up on the same time lately. And Broky is not bad either, people will talk more about him if his teammate is not niko cold and olof

Ofc rain is a great player. I dont mention him because he never considered the best in the world like the 3 others. Even tho he is 4th in the world in 2017, show how good he really is

2019-11-08 23:04
+1 he’s easily a top 3 support player right now. insane KAST too broky will be top 20 next year. mark my words
2019-11-08 15:44
He is new to the scene. The skill is there, but i think Faze need to win 2 or 3 more LAN with him puting a solid performance to enter the top 20
2019-11-08 15:47
yeah and he’s getting a ton of it by playing with cold, olof, niko and rain. tbh idk why mouz didn’t pick him up, he’s way better than choker frozen lmao and would be a perfect replacement for botj
2019-11-08 16:22

Now that EG is gone you can hand over the title to Astralis already. Kinda sad/surprised to see EG lose to FaZe tbh. Either FaZe is really getting better or EG is another team susceptible to losing to flukes.

FaZe won EG two BO3s in this tournament, dude. Won Blastralis with a rekting Inferno against Astralis. If you´re watching them since Blast, you should know they´re playing a lot better than before.

Yep, he seemed very depressed in recent events as well. Maybe he doesn’t want to play anymore.

it really looks like it though. broky and cold have given faze a new lease of life it seems
2019-11-08 16:15
Don’t forget olof, change role to awp and he is playing really good, I honestly think he is the biggest reason they play so well.

One bad game and people start saying FaZe is Shit or even olof/niko/cold are shit. This is a brand new team, they still need time to fix everything. They still beat the world no.1 team twice in the same tournament and in the bo3 format. #FaZeUp
2019-11-08 16:22
i would ask "who are saying this" but since here is hltv, probably a lot of people Evil Genius is not ranked at 1st place by lucky. They are a very good team.
2019-11-08 16:48
and yet the team that is still in its new building phase with the new roster beat the world no.1 team 2-0. Well, that's gotta prove that even though FaZe are still building up, they can still perform when they have to even though it won't happen all the time.

Europeans are so serious about CS:GO. They're like "EU CS IS THE BEST" no offence, I don't care I just want to watch the games. I don't care what country the teams are from, it doesn't even matter.
2019-11-08 17:02
Thats why na teams sucks in csgo and in lol if we’re at it. Becuase your people doesnt care. Why even compete if your guys doesnt care about the win
