FaZe get past Spirt and secure Grand Finals spot

We have found our first Grand Finalist!

A place in the Grand Final was at the line when FaZe and Spirit stepped onto the stage in Antwerp. FaZe were the favorites, but Spirit pushed them the whole way.

To kick off the action, the teams headed to FaZe's pick of Mirage. Spirit came into the match as the highest-rated CT team in the tournament but had enormous problems shutting down the FaZe offense. Especially hard was it to put a stop to "rain" who bulldozed his way through everything in the first 15 rounds which gave FaZe a five-round lead.
The second half was way closer than what we saw in the first. "chopper" called a great T side, and with the help of some big individual plays from his squad they clawed their way back into the game. FaZe was a tad too sharp though and took the victory at 16-13.

The action continued on Dust2 where it was once again FaZe that started in control, but this time on the CT side. "rain" was still hot after a fantastic Mirage performance and was causing problems for the Spirit offense. The Russians did pick up some impressive rounds in the middle of the half and were only behind by three rounds at halftime.
"chopper" who was surprisingly Spirit's best performer on Mirage, was also a key player here on Dust2. From the front, he led his team not only back in the game, but in the lead. The Russians found match point at 15-13 but unfortunately could not close it out, and FaZe took it to OT.
The map needed three overtimes as Spirit failed to convert on three more map points throughout the first two. And that would be their undoing as FaZe took advantage once they reached map point for the first time, and the map came to a close at 25-23, and FaZe are headed to the Grand Final
