mousesports top EPL Group C; FaZe, OG to play-in

The ESL Pro League Group C has been concluded, with G2 missing out on a second group stage after a loss to mousesports. Meanwhile, FaZe and OG will fight for a spot in the second group stage through the play-in.

Everything was still up in the air ahead of the final matches in Group C, as any of the four favorites — G2, FaZe, mousesports, and OG — could've been eliminated depending on the results.

Both key games, FaZe - OG and mousesports - G2 ended up being one-sided affairs. FaZe trounced OG on both Dust2 and Nuke, while G2 was unable to put up a strong fight on Nuke or Train against mousesports, which ended up costing the French-Serbian team a spot in the next stage of ESL Pro League S11 Europe.

FaZe were on the edge of elimination, but managed to squeeze into the play-in

OG were sitting on a 3-1 lead on the offensive side of their map pick, Dust2, after they claimed a force-buy on B and the two followups. Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen's men fell flat after that, losing round after round as they looked uninspired on the Terrorist side. Eleven rounds in a row went FaZe's way as Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and co. won them all with three or more members alive. After the switch, OG put up some resistance, but FaZe soon closed out the map, 16-7.

Similarly to Dust2, OG started 3-0 on Nuke only to give away the following five rounds, allowing FaZe to gain a foothold on the T-side. NiKo posted 15 frags in the first half as his side ended it with a 9-6 lead. The second half was even more one-sided as the force-buy worked out for FaZe and saw them claim the map after stringing seven rounds together.

A force buy win and then six in a row for mousesports gave Finn "karrigan" Andersen's squad a lead on Nuke, G2's map pick. The French-Serbian squad managed six before the switch, a respectable scoreline, but Robin "ropz" Kool continued his strong first half by claiming the pistol for his side and pushing mousesports towards the win. David "frozen" Čerňanský also stood out on Nuke, and G2 were unable to stop the rifling duo, conceding a 16-9 loss.

Train looked equally convincing from mousesports as karrigan spearheaded his team to a 10-2 lead on the offensive side with quick A hits round after round. Down 11-4, G2 managed to claim the crucial second pistol to stay alive in the map and series, but an anti-eco blunder hindered their chances of a comeback. Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač put in a strong performance in hopes of pulling the map back, but his 29K-19D weren't enough and mousesports closed out Train, 16-11.

GG FaZe, congratulations for FaZe fans. I said that OG still need more time even after OG won against mouz and G2. They are inconsistent team, and they need to fix this shit. Also OG need to step up in online CS. They can play good on LAN, but they can't do this in online. I think that OG need to practice more on low level LANs, like DH Open, V4 Future Esports, etc, like mouz did this unti they become a tier1 team. And FaZe has way more firepower than OG. Anyway, OG going to play-in! #DreamOG

I'm really impressed by OG performance here. While this VP lineup sux, honestly don't see any future without changes. For me they should bench AdreN and SANJI asap. As for who should they take, for me the best option is to take facecrack and Jerry. facecrack is insane youngstar, while Jerry's leading works very well. So the final roster would be : Jerry facecrack qikert buster Jame
2020-04-03 21:42
wow... SANJI is probably their most unselfish player. The guy literally drops top weapons every round, sacrifices himself and still finds a way to frag and be one of the last 2 alive. And doesnt have to fucking save every round like Jame. I think Adren definately needs to go and bring in ANGE1

You can check Hunter is Bosnian.And even he is serbian that makes %40 of team not.But he is not serbian

he's serbian born to serbian parents who is also ortodox by his instagram posts who was born in bosnia i did my research, maybe do yours before saying nonsense also it does make it french-serbian team, what else are they gonna write there, just french... ofc not you have peanut brain

So why they add Bosnian Flag? You are 0 IQ person. And lets say he is serbian. Then the team is %40 serbian.That doesnt make it Half serbian team.We accept something for being Half %50 So maybe in Brazilian education it's %40.Brainwashed Brazilian. Go and learn math firstly then you can play game.
