It’s been a perfect start to CS2 for FaZe. The star-studded roster won their third event in a row with a 2-0 win against MOUZ at the CS Asia Championships 2023 yesterday. The victory brings FaZe up to a 15-match win streak. Their only defeat in CS2 came in their very first match at IEM Sydney against GamerLegion. Since then, FaZe has been unstoppable.
In China, the Grand Final was a rematch of the Group B final. But unlike their first encounter of the tournament, FaZe quickly ended MOUZ’s hope of a tournament victory by winning the map pick of MOUZ. Mirage was dealt with in a quick fashion winning 13-7 before things got a little more complicated on Nuke. But with a good second half, FaZe gave themselves the chance of winning the map and match in overtime. At the third overtime series, FaZe finally broke MOUZ and could celebrate winning their third event in a row after winning IEM Sydney (LAN), Thunderpick World Championships (online), and now CS Asia Championships 2023 (LAN).
With the $250,000 win, FaZe has now racked up $600,000 in tournament winnings in CS2 alone.
Next week FaZe can add $200,000 on top of that if they are able to win the BLAST Premier Fall Finals in Copenhagen that are set to start on the 22nd of November.
The MVP of CS Asia Championships 2023 was handed to Robin "ropz" Kool. The Estonian was also named MVP at the Thunderpick World Championships.
