FaZe Clan upset Natus Vincere in the PGL Antwerp Major Grand Final

FaZe Clan upset Natus Vincere in the PGL Antwerp Major Grand Final, becoming the first international team to win a CSGO Major. Karrigan and company are in charge. FaZe did not stumble as they did four years ago in Boston, defeating the reigning champions in two games. Rain, the last remaining member of the original FaZe CSGO squad from 2016, showed up big when his team needed him, taking NaVi to task and winning the Major MVP award.

NAVI was unable to contain FaZe Clan, who appeared to be well-prepared on both the Inferno and Nuke maps. Helvijs “broky” Saukants and Hvard “rain” Nygaard stepped up on the big night for FaZe, handling the former Stockholm Major champions with grace. NAVI, on the other hand, had a ‘5-10’ deficit at the midway point on both maps. On Inferno, it managed to put up a valiant fight, forcing overtime before succumbing, however on Nuke, it was a full outplay that brought it to a halt. PGL Major Viewership

The opening map of the Grand Finals was Inferno, which was chosen by FaZe. Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev’s team nearly snatched a 12–5 lead from the international team. Fortunately, they were able to recompose themselves in overtime and eke out a 19-16 victory. From there, it was mostly straight sailing for FaZe, as they strolled to an easy victory on Na’Vi’s map pick of Nuke.

Going into the PGL Antwerp Major, both FaZe Clan and Natus Vincere (Na’Vi) were considered major favourites. It was no surprise, then, that the two teams would meet in the tournament finals. The game was a back-and-forth battle throughout, and the sweep revealed how tight the series was. The win marks the first time an international roster has won a CS:GO Major tournament.
