What can we expect from the series?

For old-time Counter-Strike fans, the Cloud9 vs FaZe Clan match might bring back memories of a certain Grand Finals. FaZe Clan had a substantial lead and they let the Major slip away. Well, it’s not the same two teams anymore and there are different expectations from their fans as well.

Cloud9’s loss to FlyQuest, the org’s debut in Counter-Strike came as a shocker for the community. With a 6-13 loss on Ancient, it could boil down to the map choice. Regardless, the two teams have not faced each other at all this year. Their head-to-heads last year saw the teams go the distance of three maps. Fans can expect a similar three-map series this time around as well. 

Cloud9 has taken down teams such as NAVI, G2 esports recently. Meanwhile, FaZe Clan has had similar performances where they have secured series victories against Vitality and Team Spirit. This series will come down to some individual performances. Ax1le and electronic will be players to watch out for on the Cloud9 side. Meanwhile, FaZe will require the likes of frozen and ropz to step up for a quick victory.
