The ESL One New York Counter-Strike tournament ended this Sunday, and FaZe won following a 3-0 clean sweep against Team Liquid.
On their way to the finals, FaZe went 2-0 during the group stages and 2-0 during the semifinals against Cloud9.
This is the first time FaZe competed with their newest roster after acquiring Fnatic’s olofmeister and NaVi’s GuardiaN in August. The eight-team tournament featured Astralis, Liquid, Na’Vi, SK Gaming, Virtus.pro, EnVyUs and Cloud9 and served as a great platform for the teams to display their performance along with their new rosters.
In an interview done to HLTV FaZe’s Nikola “Niko” Kovač compared the team to the old Fnatic, in the sense that they have a group of versatile players who know what to do in order to win every round.
The tournament featured a $250,000 prize pool, and with their win FaZe took $125,000.
