MIBR beat FaZe in BLAST Premier Showdown playoffs

The Brazilians pulled off an epic comeback on Nuke and then dominated on Dust2.

MIBR are through to the quarter-final stage in the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown after defeating FaZe 2-0. The Brazilian team stuttered, then moved into high gear, coming back from a 4-14 deficit on Nuke to win the map in double overtime. After wasting three map points, FaZe looked deflated on Dust2, where they were on the back foot from the offset as their opponents ran out comfortable winners to set up a quarter-final clash against the winner of Thursday's series between Liquid and MAD Lions.

MIBR looked uncharacteristically off the pace during the early stages of Nuke, their own map, as FaZe stormed to a 9-1 lead after losing the pistol round. The Brazilians them picked up the pace and secured three more rounds to keep their comeback hopes alive heading into the break.

MIBR will face Liquid or MAD Lions in the next stage

FaZe piled more misery on MIBR after the side switch, winning the first three rounds of the half, but the landscape of the game changed once the Brazilians had proper gear. Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe led the charge as MIBR enjoyed a spell of dominance and brought the deficit to a solitary round before FaZe finally broke that losing streak to hit map point. The European team would be unable to deliver the finishing blow, however, as MIBR kept their defense tight to force overtime.

The first overtime could not determine a winner as FaZe once again let a map point slip. Helvijs "⁠broky⁠" Saukants powered his team to a two-round lead in the following set of extra rounds with key opening frags, but MIBR kept their composure and won four in a row to lock down the map.

MIBR carried their momentum into Dust2 as they jumped out to a commanding 9-0 lead, with Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira raising eyebrows with a 1v3 clutch on the B site. Things were looking bleak for FaZe as the half approached its final third, but they managed to tighten up their defence and brought the deficit to just five rounds.

FaZe kept persevering in the second half and even managed to cut the gap to 11-13, but their comeback hopes were dashed in the following round as MIBR shockingly managed to win a full eco — a round that changed the course of the game and swung the momentum back towards the Brazilians, this time for good.

This. Only broky in this lineup that’s pretty good. Coldzera > Lucas though. Would be a good switch. Cold has done a pretty good job as IGL though.

cold brings lots of toxicity and ego with him... lucas1 is the complete opposite, very very very chill and fun guy. Things like this make lots of difference on the atmosphere and vibe of the team, and it reflects on the server. lucas1 is the most replaceable player of the lineup for sure, but cold would poison the team so fast.

GGWP Faze Clan MIBR did not only comeback from a 14-4, they cameback from cs 1.6. It's Major winner, from the roots of game, with a legacy to come. #FreeVSM: - VSM got banned for using a game cheat, at the age of 13, on a MM. I mean, i know VALVE is god to the game, but there are generations to come that will play the game, why not create reasonable exceptions? It makes sense in the real world....

MIBR surely played some next level CS against Faze. Skilled players can't be of much value if the organization is trash - which Faze likely is. All they care for is star power. They are suffering with IGL deficiency since Karrygan left. What Faze need right now is a good IGL + a coach. And if rumours are true, (which always are in the world of CS) Karrygan is coming to Faze. Faze surely have a ton of money after the Niko deal. -Olofmeister - Kjaerbye + Karrygan + Ropz + a Coach

Nah mate, a good IGL is all Faze need. Except for the few Blast Tournaments they won, they've been bad since Karrygan left and they've always been without a real IGL since then. Niko and now Cold and the team is without coach too..honestly Faze as an Organization and its management is so shit. They spend money blindly instead of spending it wisely. For where Faze is today, the org itself is more responsible than the players. Its so strange, when teams are striving for building 6 man rosters now, Faze hadn't even had a proper 5 man roster with suitable roles.
