OG takes down FaZe in upset win at BLAST

The new OG roster is looking promising!

The match began in the jungle of Ancient and was picked by Nemanja “nexa” Isakovic and OG having won their last six series on the exotic map. After a close 8-7 half in the favor of OG, the map ended up being won quite easily by the underdogs as they closed it out 16-9.

On Mirage FaZe managed to answer back after falling short on the first map. Something they did through a super strong T-side led by the Latvian machine Helvijs “broky” Saukants, who collected 16 kills (23 in total) for himself sending the series towards a third deciding map.

Inferno is always an exciting decider map, and today it was no different. OG did well in the first half to put in eight rounds on their T-side to set up a thriller ending to the match. For OG it was Shahar "flameZ" Shushan, who was leading the team with several multi-kill rounds. The Israelian had a battle with FaZe's Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken of which player would have the most impact on the server.

At 14-10, it was again flameZ with the double kill that set up his team for success. OG won the map and match 16-11 and will face Astralis tomorrow for a spot in the BLAST Fall Finals, while FaZe will have a second chance to make it through on Sunday, when they go up against the loser of the match on Saturday.
