Let’s have a look at some of the past major events that took place in the competitive world of CS:GO.
FaZe snagged $500,000, securing victory in the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier Grand Finals with a 2-0 victory over Astralis.
FaZe came back from a dominant opening on Cache that saw Astralis leading 12-3. After the start of the first half, FaZe came into the game like a hurricane. They managed to finish the first match 16-14, before dominating the second game (on Overpass) throughout.
This is FaZe’s second win in as many months, with the team winning the championship title at ESL One New York. They’re currently one of the strongest teams in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s ever-changing competitive scene, with a 15-0 record at recent LAN.
Astralis, FaZe, and North follow behind Fnatic on ranks two through four, slightly ahead of the rest of the field. Rounding out the top six spots are mouz in fifth and NiP in sixth.
But the truth of the matter is this: the number two ranked Astralis, and the number eleven ranked G2, are separated by only 11 points, with the French side having played two games less. So potentially, the difference could shrink to just 5 points after G2’s clash with BIG on Wednesday.
Hellraisers, Heroic, LDLC, and BIG, who sit in-between, still have everything to play for as well, as the finals are within reach and relegation also makes its presence felt from below.
Even Na’Vi and EnVyUs, the only teams with ten losses in EPL Europe could theoretically still secure a finals spot with perfect play. But, trying to get enough points to get out of the relegation zone should be a priority here.
Most of the teams currently participating in the ESL Pro League can be seen facing each other in the Esports Championship Series 4 as well. Ten teams each from Europe and North America are fighting to qualify for the playoffs.
Out of these ten teams, eight teams from each region ranked in the top 8 in the last season. This automatically made them eligible for a slot in the current season. The 2 remaining slots were taken by teams who won ECS Promotion S4 matches.
Last season’s invitees are Astralis, Team EnVyUs, FaZe Clan, Fnatic, G2 Esports, GODSENT, mousesports, and Ninjas in Pyjamas. Virtus.pro and Heroic have entered through the ECS Promotion S4 matches.
G2 Esports played their first matches against Virtus.Pro. Out of two matches played, G2 Esports was only able to win one. This gives them 3 points and the 5th position on the ladder. Their current win-rate is 48% per round.
Heroic has played the most matches out of the rest of the European teams and lost most of them. Out of 6 matches played, Heroic was only able to win a single one. At the start of the week, they were defeated by FaZe Clan.
Later Heroic managed a win against GODSENT. But they were then defeated by Ninjas in Pyjamas in both their matches. This gives Heroic the lowest win-ratio as well, which is a mere 17% a match, and 36% per round.
These sides also recently met in the ESL Pro League, where Heroic was still struggling. In the middle of the week, G2 Esports convincingly beat Heroic 2-0. After the defeat, they currently sit at 11th place, winning 8 and losing 12 in the process.
Meanwhile G2 Esports has found their way back in the ESL after a 5-game losing streak. They have recently won 7 of their last 8 games played, which includes a win against their ECS opponents. So, G2 will be looking to win their last games to guarantee a spot in the Finals, while Heroic will be desperate to win the last games in order to avoid relegation from the ESL.
2-0 G2 Esports
Heroic 3.75 – 1.25 G2 Esports
Playing 4 matches and losing 3, GODSENT has 3 points and now stands 5th in the league. The only match which GODSENT was able to win was ‘Mirage’ (16-4), played against Heroic. GODSENT lost both their matches against Team EnVyUs, but the battle was fierce. GODSENT now has a 25% win-ratio per match and a 48% win-rate per round.
Meanwhile, Fnatic is unbeaten since they have played only one series against Heroic and won 2-0 in the ECS.
Season six of the ESL Pro League is nearing its conclusion and two of the world’s best teams are currently in a fight for the top playoff seed. FaZe and Fnatic are tied for first place in the European region of the league, and both teams are sitting at 14-8 records with 43 points.
Fnatic wasn’t so hot this past week, however, losing to North in two overtime thrillers on Mirage and Cobblestone. On the bright side, they are still above North in ESL, who is at number two in the league for seedings.
The current playoff seedings are as follows: Fnatic, FaZe, North, Astralis, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and G2 Esports. This order and set of teams could easily change in the last few matches of the season.
With one week remaining, Fnatic and FaZe are tied for the top two spots in the standings.
So there might be a tight affair this time around as well.
Fnatic 1.85 – 1.80 GODSENT
