Håvard “rain” Nygaard and FaZe to Paris

FaZe, led by Norwegian Håvard “rain” Nygaard, is once again qualified for a Major. The team still had to dig deep in overtime against Cloud9 at Mirage, before the team played much stronger at Inferno and took the victory 2-0.

This means that three out of three Norwegian players in the qualifiers have secured tickets to the last Valve-sponsored tournament in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Triple Norwegian in Paris

With Apeks and Complexity already qualified with respectively Joakim “jkaem” Myrbostad and Håkon “hallzerk” Fjærli on the teams, only our biggest star remained.

FaZe opened the RMR qualifiers well, and with a win over Norwegian Apeks they stood strong after two straight wins. The team still lost against both Natus Vincere and Bad News Eagles, and then a fine overtime loss against MOUZ in the last round. Thus, it was scary for FaZe who were one of the advance favorites to qualify early. The giant nevertheless woke up and easily knocked out Aurora in the Last Chance qualifier before it was only Cloud9 who stood in the way of a new ticket to another Major.

At Mirage, things looked bad for a long time for FaZe, who were down 4-11 at the break. However, they recovered to 15-15, thanks in large part to Helvijs “broky” Saukants who closed with 32-16 in K/D (kill/death ratio red. note). In overtime, only FaZe won rounds and thus took the victory 19-15.

On FaZe’s own map choice Inferno, things looked much better early on. The team dominated and led 11-4 at the break. After the break, the teams took turns taking rounds, before FaZe finally proved too strong and won comfortably 16-9.

With that we have a total of three Norwegians and two Norwegian organizations ready for the major in Paris after Apeks and Heroic secured tickets earlier in the qualification.
