FaZe sweep OG 3-0 to secure IEM New York title

The European squad won their first event since the addition of Markus "⁠Kjaerbye⁠" Kjærbye with a confident 3-0 victory over OG.

In an unexpected grand final battle between the 13th and the 17th ranked team in the world, FaZe took down OG 3-0 to claim the victory in the $140,000 event. Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač and co. have been unable to win an event since November of last year, when they were victorious at BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen.

OG will have to suffice with reaching their first grand final since forming the team 10 months ago, as they were unable to repeat their win over FaZe from the group stage, which ended 2-0 in favor of Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen's side. The BO5 grand final was a different story, as it started competitively on Mirage (22-20), but FaZe were dominant on Inferno (16-5) and comfortable on Dust2 (16-11), taking the tournament in an impressive fashion, having defeated Heroic, BIG, and Vitality earlier.

NiKo and co. claim their first title since BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen

OG grabbed a 6-1 lead on the CT side of Mirage, FaZe's pick, as Aleksib led the way with a 3-0 opening duel record. NiKo's men found their footing after that, with a 3v5 win which included a Helvijs "⁠broky⁠" Saukants 3K allowing his team to finish the half just slightly behind, 8-7.

After the switch, FaZe pulled ahead by winning the pistol, but OG found success towards B, abusing the Kjaerbye - Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David partnership. The two Major MVPs were unable to find a solution for the whole half, eventually seeing the game go to overtime. The B site struggles continued for FaZe, but they were bailed out by solid T-sides as the back-and-forth continued. Eventually, Kjaerbye stepped up with a quad kill on B to conclude Mirage in his team's favor, 22-20.

Following a rough first map, coldzera came alive on Inferno, starting with an 8K-1D score as his team took a 5-1 lead, overcoming the second-round loss. OG added a second to the tally only after finding themselves down 10-1, again with pistols, somewhat recovering the half at the end (12-3). Aleksib's pistol triple on the B-site hold gave his team a lifeline, but FaZe responded with four back-to-back gun rounds and ended Inferno 16-5.

Dust2 was hard-fought from the start. OG picked up the early lead off of the pistol, 3-0, before FaZe showed impressive form with the rifles to take the lead 6-3. Mateusz "⁠mantuu⁠" Wilczewski's AWPing and Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså's rifling allowed OG to find their footing in the second part of the half, seeing the team ranked 13th in the world edge into a 8-7 lead.

Following the side swap, FaZe established themselves thanks to NiKo's hat-trick of frags on the pistol and Håvard "⁠rain⁠" Nygaard's key double on the A hold in the first buy (12-9). They powered on to match point, 15-9, and close out the series thanks to NiKo's 1v1 clutch for the final score of 16-11.

The tweet after the first map totally broke NBK :DD What a mindgame
2020-10-11 20:02
What happened.?
2020-10-12 00:25
Kjaerbye dissed OG on Twitter, and NBK responded with saying that he finally wasn’t the worst player going in the match attached with a picture Kjaerbye’s HLTV stats. FaZe won the first map and Kjaerbye told NBK to join the server.

Congratulations FaZe fans, enjoy your victory. Your team played a great CS on IEM. *Applauses sounds* NT OG, you're played not bad for your first grandfinal, guys. Although i wanted them to win it was a great tournament for OG. Top2 without coach seems like a great result. #DreamOG #FaZeUP^

2020-10-11 20:40
FaZe is showing some potential, overall the core of NiKo, coldzera and broky can still make a TOP 10 team together I think. OG is looking really good atm., unlucky final for them.
2020-10-11 20:40
Bye bye 200 coins on CS go polygon :( Gg Btw - we are living in the end times so make sure where do you go If you die - heaven or hell
2020-10-11 20:40
because of your addiction i doubt you'll go to heaven..
2020-10-12 11:21
ha i got you you need to understand that there is no good person in the world at all and we can go to heaven only thanks to what Jesus did and believing in him no works can save us bruh btw it's not addiction because I started it with free coins, played for 1 week, lost them all and GG XD Ga 2, 16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. 18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

2020-10-11 20:48
Nice to see whatever swap they made with Kjaerbye has worked out. He looked terrible before but is much better now. Interesting how some change like that can have such a big impact. Congrats to FaZe.
2020-10-11 20:57
Wait until a real tier 1 org realizes aleksib is actually a good IGL, buys him out and then watch what happens to the rest of this dumpster fire. They wouldnt even get into any finals in the first place. The calls were pretty good all game, but there is no firepower to actually convert the rounds and its making him look silly. No wonder NBK had to ask him not call out peoples mistakes in mid round when they keep throwing round after round. The riflers just aren't good enough for tier 1 games against top teams. They can win some games here and there, but its really hard to lift trophies if the only reliable player is your IGL. It's legit insane if they make top10 (even during online era) without any reliable hitters that a caller can rely to not botch an easy firefight to throw the round. I guess we should be impressed about OG even making it to a final with this kind of roster.
2020-10-11 20:59
I don't think that Aleksib will leave from OG. He and NBK- got a full carte blanche, OG owners N0tail and Ceb fully trust them in CS:GO matters. They can make roster changes if they want.
2020-10-14 10:46
Oh, man, dont tell me FaZe will stick together because of this win now, what a disaster :D

Can someone tell me what happened? I missed the entire series and I can't grasp the deal of the only team performing in IEM NY dropping 3 consecutive maps to a team that got a clean and dried out map pool
2020-10-11 21:25
"a team that got a clean and dried out map pool" They destroyed OG on inferno (Best map for OG) 5-16 Before that the destroyed Heroic on train 16-3 (a map that faze had less than 20% winrate) It seems like the bootcamp they did before the event payed out

I got some info from Twitter yesterday FaZe fans: Grand Finals Was boring Neutral fans: OG throwing OG Fans: CHOOOOOKE! So seems like just one team logged into the server. Sad to see. Can't assess whether or not FaZe was good since they lost once to OG but in all other matches they had no opposition. Impossible to know how well FaZe played.
2020-10-12 14:14
Kjaerbye change role with Cold . Kjaerbye did way better than Cold at Cold's role and Cold did way better than Kjaerbye at Kjaer's role so they found a lot of frags in sum by just a little inner change that gave them the victories

I watched the semi-finals. In that one it didn't even look like Kjaerbye had a set role, but just was sent out to do whatever he wanted
2020-10-12 14:31
and it worked 46/31 1.30 is top tier performance no?

Congrats to FaZe but what a disappointing tournament. Big teams underperformed massively and two lowest-ranked team made it to the final. Then, a 3-0 swept win. As a person who attended to ESL One NY offline, this was the most underwhelming final so far (and it was a Bo5). I guess not much to expect in online era.
