100 Thieves knock out FaZe

100 Thieves have knocked FaZe out of ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals with a 2-1 victory in Group A's lower bracket semi-final (Inferno 16-11, Dust2 12-16, Mirage 16-7).

Aaron "AZR" Ward & co. have now moved on to Group A's lower bracket final, where they will take on the winner of MIBR and fnatic on Thursday for a spot in the playoffs, leaving Nikola "NiKo" Kovač's team eliminated in 9th-12th place.

100 Thieves picked Inferno for the first map of the series and got off to a good start before the two sides started trading blows with Marcelo "coldzera" David and Håvard "rain" Nygaard putting up individual plays for FaZe, while AZR and Jay "Liazz" Tregillgas stood out on the other side with crucial multikills.

Consecutive triples from the latter helped close the first half with a dominant 11-4 scoreline and coupled with a second-round forcebuy triumph at the beginning of the other, courtesy of AZR denying a bomb plant in the last seconds, 100 Thieves were within two rounds of victory. FaZe tried to come back, but a 5-14 deficit was too much to handle and they conceded the opening map 11-16.

100 Thieves will play the winner of MIBR and fnatic in a do-or-die match

Dust2 was a lot more back-and-forth in the first half, with Justin "jks" Savage & co. grabbing the early lead while FaZe went on to exploit 100 Thieves' lacking B defense to end up with a one-round advantage before switching over to the Counter-Terrorist side themselves.

There, the European squad pulled away with the pistol round and although 100 Thieves managed to equalize the map at 11-11, NiKo & co. stepped up late in the half, with the Bosnian clutching a 1v2 along the way to level the series at 16-12.

For the third time in a row, FaZe were unable to get off the line first on Mirage, and this time they found it much more difficult despite big individual plays from NiKo and coldzera, as 100 Thieves put up a fantastic offense worth 11 rounds. Once AZR's squad won the second-round forcebuy in the second half, it was only a matter of time before they closed out the series at 16-7, 2-1.

2019-12-04 18:58
That's what happens when a mad fragger with little to no IGL skills start to IGL. FaZe needs a real IGL. MSL will do and he's available. As to who's gonna be benched - I've no idea. They are all good.

-Olof let him go back to the Swedish scene in place of forest on nip who will most likely join dignitas. Keep broky young promising talent who’s putting up good numbers, pick up MSL before north re-aquire him after their horrible showing here at EPL to IGL and main awp, and if they can’t get MSL pick up tabsen from BIG and juggle awp between cold niko and broky although lack of main awps been hurting them so plz get MSL don’t throw the chance to get a good IGL like you did aleksib faze.

2019-12-04 19:08
and BAM it happened. knocked out in your faze. olof and cold again at the bottom. is it their roles or do they simply underperform most of the time? something seems not to fit here. btw imagine paying 1million for cold - holy shit what a bad deal considering his performance to date. faze and mibr always seem to be even more crippled every time they make a roster change roflmao. competition is harder now, other teams catch up apparently. very well - entertainment wise.
2019-12-04 19:13
LMAO cold is their second best rated and second best player by fucking far you are fucking dumb i’m not a fan of his style but to say that he is trash you need to be a fucking mad hater

What's really the point for Faze to exist. They don't have any passion or motivation after Boston. They try but they always rely on raw power and individual skill. Individual skill doesn't matter so much anymore after Astralis started steamrolling everyone with insane tactics and utilitt usage. Coldzera is past his prime and we are seeing it.
2019-12-04 19:25
He has been past his prime for ages now. They didn't need Coldzera, they needed MSL or someone else with atleast half a brain.

Yeah... I don't understand the move to get a rifler and a support player to compensate for an IGL and an Awper... now you have NiKos bad IGLing and at the same time reduced firepower cuz of that, and olof AWPing who clearly is no real AWPer... those two roles are really essential. I think cold isn't bad but they didn't need him..

2019-12-05 15:51
Coldzera needs another role as T. He has never been this passive. It's like his only function as T is to try to clean any mess left from Faze. Which is too hard and stupid. Albeit he is a good clutcher, he absolutely must be involved in the entry action.

nice way to call someone a baiter
2019-12-04 20:37
On the contrary. A baiter would take advantage of his partner's death. He is simply not participating of the action at all. It's like buying Pelé to be a goalkeeper. It doesn't make sense.
2019-12-04 20:55
Hes never been an entry.
2019-12-04 20:51
But he has never been away from action either. He either lurks or entries after 2 players. But simply flashing and getting late to action is not his thing.

100Kriegs have been coming back really strong since Gratisfaction patched his sensitivity and is delivering again. But FaZe my god, disappointing...
2019-12-04 22:07
By the way where are the people who were pretending "Olof is back" and that he "will make a great primary awper" ?
2019-12-04 22:09
expected and deserved

No more conclude dudes

even with jks and jkaem bottom fragging. Will be good to see their form with jks and jkaem on their game

Also great to see that pretty much every player on the team can go nuts when need be, that they are not depending on 1 or 2 players to perform.
2019-12-05 09:59
just need them to all go nuts at once and we should see a good result in championships such as this.... however not the case this time around :(

Gratisfaction carried them. 100T would be out without him
2019-12-05 09:37
100 Thieves made a good call picking up the Renegades lineup. Gratz boises from dannanda.

i thought finnish people hated 100t/renegades

Heh I think many do, or did at least, because they beat ENCE. I myself have been a big fan of the lineup from the getgo, they haven't had the chance to practice against top teams like EU lineups have and they just put in the work. Also, jkaem had a moment when it looked like his career is pretty much done (after he was dropped from FaZe and had a bad run with Dignitas), at least on top level, then Renegades gave him a chance and it's pretty incredible how it all turned out. He found a home and has the past year played better than ever. I think the lineup is solid and could easily be considered a strong top5-top3 team (thus far, maybe even better).

olof should just leave Faze Faze should just get another young talent. Olof should just join the other Swede vets to make a new team olof gtr Friberg Xizt and maybe Forest soon? or someone else.
