Bymas powers FaZe to victory over NAVI in DH Masters Spring

With a 2-0 win over Natus Vincere, FaZe continue their run in DreamHack Masters Spring Europe, earning a spot in the consolidation final where they will face BIG.

FaZe suffered losses to Natus Vincere in all three meetings between the two teams in 2020, and needed to turn around the negative trend in DreamHack Masters Spring to stay alive in the competition. Today they faced off in the lower-bracket final, where FaZe secured a comfortable win on their map pick, Mirage, and held off Natus Vincere on Dust2 to secure a swift 2-0 for the series. The Lithuanian rookie Aurimas "⁠Bymas⁠" Pipiras had an impressive game, leading his team with a 1.37 rating.

After a 3-0 start for Natus Vincere on the CT side of Mirage, FaZe's map pick on which they boast an 82% win rate in the last three months, Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David showed up with a 1v3 clutch on B which helped his side equalize the score at 3-3. The CIS team moved back into the lead thanks to some well-executed aggresion before FaZe figured out how to counter it, tying the score again at 6-6. Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač was leading the fragging for his side in the first half, and before the end of it, allowed FaZe to grab a minimal advantage, 8-7.

That advantage was extended after the pistol, when Håvard "⁠rain⁠" Nygaard secured a triple, while Bymas' quad kill hold with the MP9 in the first rifle round put FaZe in the driver's seat (13-8). The two teams traded a few rounds from that point onwards, but FaZe quickly capitalized on their lead following another impressive 4K by Bymas.

The Baltic duo broky and Bymas topped the scoreboard for FaZe

In the second map pistol, Denis "⁠electronic⁠" Sharipov unlocked the B bombsite on Dust2 with a triple that won them the round, but Bymas and coldzera turned around a 2v3 in the following force which got FaZe rolling early. rain was proving to be deadly on the A defense, pushing his side to an 8-3 advantage with a double, and Natus Vincere struggled to build any momentum. With only electronic breaking double digits in the first half, his team managed just five rounds for the half, leaving them with a mountain to climb on the defense.

Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev's flank netted him a hat-trick of frags on the second pistol, but the crucial round slipped away from Natus Vincere as Bymas and Helvijs "⁠broky⁠" Saukants combined for all five kills. Ilya "⁠Perfecto⁠" Zalutskiy locked down B in the first rifle round, which started Natus Vincere's streak on the defense, chaining rounds together for the first time on Dust2. The score was close to being equalized (12-11), when FaZe finally found a way to unlock the defenses - by rushing B. The European squad did it two times in a row, and after finding some momentum, pounced to close out the map 16-11.

Navi should lose their n1 spot rn actually, because G2 will get more points than them from this tournament, and g2's win streak is better than their, so there is no way that they stay n1 Also, I expect after this week Faze to jump like 5th or 4th place, even 3rd is possible Anyways, ggs for Faze, at last they won vs navi unexpected with Bymas, but insane performance from him. For Navi, i could say that if S1mple is dead, they lose round and vice versa. Electronic tried to carry, but its impossible 1v5

it doesn't matter what team you're a fan of, if you care about the future of CS and where it'll be in 5 years, this should excite you. seeing new talents get a chance to shine and performing at the highest level is so fulfilling

Amazing performance by the youngsters. And Rain was on point today aswell. So sick and tired of people -Rain for negative stats when hes incredible poor utilized. He's role has to be absolute stellar to get a positive stat. Eventho they got two youngsters he gives them room to shine. Hes baiting, entry fragging, using shit guns when needed, anchoring tough spots, doing what ever hes told for the benefit of the team. And sometimes he just tapping heads everywhere. Cant expect that all the time.

Electronic - 39 deaths. P1mple - 30 deaths. He just baits and saves, this bumps his rating so much.
