FaZe defeat NAVI 2-0 to win PGL Major Antwerp

FaZe become the first international lineup to win a Major, besting the holders Natus Vincere 2-0

22:35 THAT'S IT! FaZe ARE YOUR MAJOR CHAMPIONS!

Natus Vincere crumble under the pressure, something no one expected to happen, and FaZe bring it home.

Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen finally wins his Major, after years of heartbreak and near misses, and it took a monumental performance from Håvard "⁠rain⁠" Nygaard to get it done.


22:28 FaZe within touching distance

Once FaZe get themselves another buy, they get rain through secret and he finds a kill, throwing the Natus Vincere defence into chaos. Despite things coming down to a 2v1 for FaZe with both members on less than 20 health, they manage to close it out.

This gives FaZe a chance to break the economy but they can't find the round needed in the follow up, and thus Natus Vincere get a few weaker buys to drag themselves close.

HOWEVER, a pacy upper execute with Tec-9s bears fruit for FaZe, once again relying on a monster play from rain to bring things home.

After some back-and-forth, FaZe are in touching distance.

Europe FaZe 13 - 10 Ukraine Natus Vincere


22:19 Natus Vincere break FaZe to get back into the game

FaZe win their T pistol to put Natus Vincere under EXTREME pressure.

rain continues his quest for a Major MVP award by picking up two openers to seemingly crush the second round force-buy, but Natus Vincere somehow find frags to make things close, and Valeriy "⁠b1t⁠" Vakhovskiy comes up with a miraculous 1v2 deagle clutch to give his team hope.

FaZe answer with a force-buy of their own, but it is dealt with by Natus Vincere.

Game on.

Europe FaZe 11 - 7 Ukraine Natus Vincere


22:13 Natus Vincere recover towards end of the first half

Natus Vincere FINALLY find some traction on their offence.

They lose a gun round to a Russel "⁠Twistzz⁠" Van Dulken 1v2 on the lower site, but the next round sees them win with an upper execute, forcing FaZe onto a bad buy.

karrigan can't find anything with an aggressive push outside, rain dies as well, and yet SOMEHOW Helvijs "⁠broky⁠" Saukants finds multiple kills to make the round close, only for Natus Vincere to eventually close.

The final round of the half, with FaZe on a weak force-buy, goes the way of Natus Vincere, recovering what looked like a potentially catastrophic half for the CIS squad.

Europe FaZe 10 - 5 Ukraine Natus Vincere


21:03 rain continues to dominate

Round eight sees rain yet again come up huge, grabbing a 3k in the face of an upper hit with his team on a bad buy. He even cleans up the follow up pistol buy from Natus Vincere to put his score at 16-4.

Natus Vincere FINALLY silence rain when they get another full buy, but they struggle to capitalise on the space they gain and leave the site take FAR too late, allowing Robin "⁠ropz⁠" Kool to clean up the round with a 3k from decon.

Andrey "⁠B1ad3⁠" Gorodenskiy calls a timeout to try and remedy this, before it gets out of hand.

Europe FaZe 8 - 2 Ukraine Natus Vincere


21:58 FaZe maintain early lead

rain has been absolutely dominating outside, a 4k hold in round 5 forcing Natus Vincere onto a save.

When Natus Vincere get guns back up, a VERY late upper hit comes down to a 1v1 which Denis "⁠electroNic⁠" Sharipov duly wins. Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev deserves huge credit for a 3k that cracked open the site.

Europe FaZe 5 - 2 Ukraine Natus Vincere


21:50 Close battle early doors on Nuke

FaZe obliterate Natus Vincere in the pistol round, keeping all five alive, and they convert in the face of a Natus Vincere save.

Natus Vincere pick up the very first gun round to avoid the slow start of Inferno, a slow and very spread default picking FaZe apart.

Europe FaZe 2 - 1 Ukraine Natus Vincere


21:45 The second map, Nuke, begins!

Nuke begins, with FaZe on the CT side.

If you trust stats, this should be a 2-0. FaZe have a 100% winrate on the map in the last three months, whereas Natus Vincere only have a 50% winrate.


21:25 FaZe TAKE INFERNO TO GO 1-0 UP

FaZe duly capitalise on picking up two CT rounds to open OT, grabbing two T rounds on the bounce to close map one.

The second round came down to a plant with only four seconds left! FaZe went B, lost two trying to enter the site, ropz grabbed a kill on a rotator at A and back FaZe went!

The CS:GO world must be out of breath after that one, because it was a back-and-forth affair that went right down to the wire.

Europe FaZe 19 - 16 Ukraine Natus Vincere


21:20 First half of overtime goes to FaZe

Things get really wild in overtime.

First round sees a B hit come down to a 1v2 for Natus Vincere, but electroNic can't close.

Second again goes FaZe's way, a VITAL karrigan 2k holding the line, once again on the B site.

Natus Vincere head to B one more time, and this time find success.

Europe FaZe 17 - 16 Ukraine Natus Vincere


21:13 OVERTIME

After an 0-8 start, Natus Vincere can't complete a miraculous comeback to steal away their opponents pick.

A huge 3k from karrigan in round 29 gave FaZe the hope of getting to overtime, and ropz comes up big with a vital clutch to take us to OT.

Europe FaZe 15 - 15 Ukraine Natus Vincere



21:04 Natus Vincere are back level

Ilya "⁠Perfecto⁠" Zalutskiy is putting this game on his back. Despite losing two on their way into the site, Natus Vincere can thank the aforementioned Russian for finding key frags to make the B hit work.

Europe FaZe 13 - 13 Ukraine Natus Vincere


20:56 FaZe back in the driving seat

This game is wreaking HAVOC on the nerves.

FaZe get guns up, manage to bring a round down to a 2v1 in their favour with 10s left, and yet b1t conjures up a double-kill to force FaZe back onto an eco.

When another buy comes around for FaZe they make no mistake, holding off a full five-man A execute to put themselves back in the driving seat.

Europe FaZe 13 - 10 Ukraine Natus Vincere


20:48 Natus Vincere begin recovery

Natus Vincere manage to grab a couple of rounds early once the guns come up and break the FaZe economy, giving themselves some breathing room and a way back into this map. It is not easy going though, with each round throwing up some scares.

Europe FaZe 12 - 8 Ukraine Natus Vincere


20:41 rain makes HUGE play to put all the pressure on NAVI

WHAT IS THAT?!

rain opens the pistol with a 2k at banana, only to FINISH the round with three more on the retake.

INSANE.

Europe FaZe 11 - 5 Ukraine Natus Vincere


20:37 FaZe bring convincing lead into second period

Natus Vincere adjust, calling far less rotations than the early part of the half, and it does improve their holds and start netting them rounds.

FaZe are still able to find gaps in the defence, often with simple dry peeks based on timings and intuition, but with less success.

A lost round to a FaZe force-buy kills any momentum Natus Vincere built, letting slip the faint hope of recovering the half, even with the last going their way courtesy of Kirill "⁠Boombl4⁠" Mikhailov's MP9.

Europe FaZe 10 - 5 Ukraine Natus Vincere


20:24 Natus Vincere finally get on the board

Natus Vincere nearly net their first round in round eight on a partial buy, a double hold of arch leading to a 4v3 advantage they can't quite convert.

The following round finally DOES see Natus Vincere get on the board, courtesy of a big mid hold from electroNic.

Europe FaZe 8 - 1 Ukraine Natus Vincere


20:18 Natus Vincere yet to get on the board

Natus Vincere are really struggling to get going on their defence here, the passive holds netting zero information.

FaZe have done nothing special yet, playing standard defaults and taking map control, but it is being done to a high level. The second gun round goes their way, and Natus Vincere take a tac-pause to try and figure things out.

Europe FaZe 6 - 0 Ukraine Natus Vincere


20:12 FaZe take control of early part of Inferno

FaZe hold off the Natus Vincere second round force despite a double kill from s1mple on the A site, and then duly rack up another to go 3-0.

The first gun round comes down to a 3v3 in the B site, and Natus Vincere can't get it done in the retake, with ropz bringing the round home in a 1v1.

FaZe in control early.


20:03 FaZe start strong

FaZe pick up a convincing win with a quick mid pop to kick off Inferno, before we get a short technical pause.

The tension is IMMENSE.


19:54 The veto is in

We will be seeing Inferno for FaZe, Nuke for Natus Vincere, and Ancient as the decider, as predicted.

Now we know the maps, who is the favourite?

The veto was as follows:

FaZe ban Mirage
NAVI ban Vertigo
FaZe pick Inferno (NAVI pick CT start)
NAVI pick Nuke (FaZe pick CT start)
NAVI ban Overpass
FaZe ban Dust2
Ancient is the decider (NAVI pick CT start)


19:50 Who will take the crown today, Natus Vincere or FaZe?

Today history will be made. Natus Vincere take on FaZe at 20:00 . Either Natus Vincere will join an elite club of teams who have managed back-to-back Major trophies, or legendary IGL karrigan will pick up his first Major, finally banishing the demons of Boston.

These two teams have met twice so far this year, the first battle going the way of Natus Vincere 2-1 at IEM Katowice, the second going the way of FaZe 2-0 during ESL Pro League Season 15.

s1mple is poised to pick up back-to-back Major MVPs

Coming into this grand final many eyes will be on the star trios for each team, and if ratings are anything to go by it is Natus Vincere who sport a slight advantage. s1mple (1.28) and b1t (1.26) find themselves the top two performing players in the Major proper, whereas the highest rated member of the FaZe trio, ropz (1.14), isn't even in the top 10. In fact, rain (1.19) is actually the best performer on FaZe sitting pretty in the fifth spot.

As for the veto, it may well hinge on Vertigo – previously it was a map that neither team played, but FaZe recently floated it in the ESL Pro League Season 15 final against ENCE, and proceeded to win the map when it was picked. The other interesting map to consider in the veto is Ancient, a map that both teams sport a 100% win rate on in 2022; it seems likely we will get it as a decider.

Wow I was not expecting that. I mean, I only watch FaZe's games because that Twistzz fella is rly cute, so I thought "handsome dude's team against one of the best teams in the world, this might be good", but wow, that was a great series, had a lot of fun watching it and Twistzz was looking very good, and playing very good too I guess.

For true Faze fans, especially who stayed with team after 2018 Boston - live the moment, there is no better joy for a csgo fan to see your team finally wins major for the fist time. I know it for sure.

???? ur logic still makes no sense safe and boring =/= bad A CS style can be better and "boring" at the same time. It's reasonable to conclude that FaZe's style was better which is why they won 2-0 and with a very comfortable margin on the 2nd map.

You are obviously a sub 4000 player, why are you even commenting, when you have no grasp of the game at an amateur level, let alone the pro scene? Karrigan is one of, if not, the most intelligent IGLs currently playing the game, supported by an insanely talented stack of teammates. The playstyle of FAZE is beautiful to watch because of how aggressive and assertive they are. Gla1ve on the other hand is stuck in 2018 meta and is getting stomped.
2022-05-23 12:49
I sure as hell hope, that NiKo has the balls, to apologize to Karrigan and congratulate him .. Karrigan 1 major - NiKo 0 majors

And this is the second major in a row whose final match I haven't and I will not watch. Machine is probably the worse "T1" caster because he understands almost nothing about the game, all his casting is down to player A killed player B which is too annoying to listen to 150 times in a row. Spunj is a lot more analytical for sure but he's repetitive as hell. I'm really saddened Hugo and Harry were robbed of this opportunity. Congrats to FaZe - you've finally assembled so much firepower you're unbeatable. And luckily you don't have players with super egos (e.g. NiKo) who tilt and make other players feel horrible and throw games as a result. To HLTV: it's sad you continue to link to horrible Twitch 1080p streams instead of high quality 4K on YouTube. Maybe one day you'll come to your senses.

We needed pick d2 , and then map 3 could be ancient and also nuke but on map 3 is different if u won map 2 and u also began on ct side on nuke . This game was shit , bad map choose from navi , they could easily won , they are the better team , and real number 1 . They just made mistake on map choose/kick . And then rain having a good day 1 times every 20 matchs… and simple having a bad tournament every 20 tournament…

Woohoo! Congrats FaZe. The whole squad but especially rain, the Norwegian (+karrigan getting his first major at the age of 32). It was Faze's turn, Navi had their awesome major in 2021.

Well done to everyone who worked hard to put on this amazing show, definitely one for the history books. Karrigan finally gets his crown, what a legend. FaZe truly have a perfect story here Counterstrike is the best esport, nothing else even comes close to the people and passion in this game

They had to win in overtime on the first map, they had to win before overtime. Unfortunately, Navi missed the victory there, because FaZe got a significant psychological advantage by pulling out an almost lost map. In many ways, thanks to the active and unexpected actions of Kerrigan, it is worth acknowledging this. When the captain, who has been going to this victory for so long, does such things, that's it, it's a big boost to an already very strong team. The second map was affected by internal uncertainty about the future of Russian players in the team. There were simply no psychological reserves left, and internal, not external, for the public, cohesion in the team and confidence in each other and in ourselves to interrupt FaZe's mood. That is, it was necessary to overcome themselves and the situation, but there was no foundation for this. In many ways, this is the merit of the highest persons in the team. They cut off one's nose to spite one's face. Instead of showing the whole world unity in difficult times, set an example of unity. On this one could get the strongest psychological confidence and get an incredibly strong team for a long time, but, unfortunately, they were not capable of that. That was a chance to make a legendary team, that was a chance to make really big things to happen, bigger than CS, bigger than just a video game, bigger than just an entertainment, that was a chance to do something such special and influential to the world, that was a chance to really change the situation in the world if you wanted it... and they missed this great opportunity, sadly. Instead of organizational calculation and wise foresight, emotions prevailed. After this, the question of priorities arises - what is more important for you - the result or something else.
