NAVI beat Virtus.pro to advance to playoffs, mousesports eliminate FaZe at DHM Spring

Natus Vincere are set to lock horns with Gambit in Group A's upper final, while mousesports have another elimination series against G2 ahead of them.

Natus Vincere have locked a spot in the DreamHack Masters Spring playoffs after beating Virtus.pro 2-0 in Group A's upper bracket final, while FaZe have been eliminated at the hands of mousesports following a nail-biting finish to a three-map series between the two international sides.

Dzhami "⁠Jame⁠" Ali's squad are set to play another regional matchup in the group's lower bracket against Spirit, which is scheduled for Friday at 16:45 and will be followed by mousesports' clash with G2 at 20:00 .

The early elimination comes as a tough blow to FaZe, who have been unable to impress in every tournament they have attended so far since Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen joined the team earlier this year. The European mixture has now exited three consecutive events in the group stage, and they have also failed to secure a spot at IEM Summer following an unsuccessful campaign in the closed qualifier in late April.

Perfecto turned up in great form in the VP series

Natus Vincere picked up a comfortable victory over their regional rivals despite getting off to a slow start on Dust2. Virtus.pro seemed to have the upper hand when they didn't let their opponents string rounds together on the CT side, but a forcebuy victory spearheaded by Kirill "⁠Boombl4⁠" Mikhailov helped shift the momentum, and after sides switched Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev's flashy 1v2 clutch on A brought the Jame-led squad to heel. Inferno was just a matter of complete domination from Natus Vincere on the CT side on the back of a second-round win, followed by a quick closing in the second half.

Meanwhile, mousesports took on FaZe in a back-and-forth series. The first half of Mirage rested on a knife's edge with the latter team coming out ahead before they put together a flawless defense led by Russel "⁠Twistzz⁠" Van Dulken and Helvijs "⁠broky⁠" Saukants.

Robin "⁠ropz⁠" Kool & co. replied with a strong showing on the Terrorist side on Nuke to equalize the series without too much trouble, and it all came down to Overpass. FaZe looked in control when they picked up a 9-6 half on the offense and went on to clinch the second pistol, but mousesports turned things around with Frederik "⁠acoR⁠" Gyldstrand leading the way to force overtime, where they finished off the job.

I mean look at the B-plant defence with B1T and compare it and defence with flamie. B-plant always have been pain in ass for Na'Vi. A big hole in Na'Vi CT-side because flamie couldn't properly frag. He got positions, where he supposed to do atleast one frag, but mostly he just got killed and that's it. But with B1T it looks so amazing. Every time B1T is doing one-two frags while defending the site.

Also take a look at his behavior now and then. In mouz karrigan often seemed happy, clapping, cheering with his red toy, etc. In faze he always seems extremely serious and even sad i would say. Imho he had more fun with youngsters, and things looked more promising than now.

Guardian was still signed. So no free agent.
2021-04-30 17:24
Mouz don't have the money for big names. That is why they work so much with talents. Don't forget ropz and Niko became big cuz mouz gave them the chance. I don't understand why a guy like karrigan who seems humble don't understand it is a great story. Imagine he would win a major with bunch of talents. People would say glaive 4 majors lul what a joke. And the chance to win a major with faze and mouz is equal under 5%

I agree. Ropz probably has the best game sense after the top 4 from last year. But twistzz imo is the better fragger(under karrigan, he's really good at making players shine), so that's why I said what I said. As a player, ropz is better any day of the week. But sadly hltv top 20 only cares about trophies and frags. Not game sense

Karrigan is better than dexter but he joined a team with players that already won everything or too much and didn't improve since 3 years. Unlike mouz. Everyone evolved the last 3 years a lot. Karrigan had taken the money over players with a good ambitions

Although I agree with some of your points, when karrigan joined FaZe, he said that he wanted to cement his legacy as one of the best IGLs, that he felt that this team had what it takes to win tournaments. Maybe karrigan is better, but in that case, if his words are true, his decision making on leaving mouz wasnt a good or a smart move. Hopefully he proves me wrong tho

NaVi is looking great atm., if they will keep it up I think they can be contender for the biggest titles with B1T. VP is struggling insanely lately, they are making huge mistakes as a team and individually, the firepower is not there, overall I think it's only a matter of time before we see changes. mouz is still sometimes lacking firepower when it comes to fighting with the best teams in the world, but other than that they have some life in them. FaZe looks dead, and I think changes are needed, they are not looking like a good team.
