After a 16-7 defeat to Astralis, FaZe have been eliminated from Blast Pro Series Copenhagen.
They began the tournament with a tie to NiP on Mirage and then a victory over NaVi on Overpass. Their initial good form stalled, so they fell to Cloud9 then Astralis to be eliminated from the tournament. Other results ensured that NiP would advance to the final, but the Astralis defeat proved to be the final nail in the coffin for FaZe Clan.
The players have commented on the result, with current in-game leader Nikola “NiKo” Kovac saying on Twitter:
“We f**ked up so hard.” – NiKo
The veteran ex-leader on the roster, Finn “karrigan” Andersen apologised to fans in his own tweet.
After a victory at EPICENTER 2018, where FaZe defeated Blast Pro finalists NaVi to take the trophy, this placing has left many surprised.
In an interview with TV2.DK, karrigan claimed that the weeks leading up to and following EPICENTER had to contain success in order for him to stay on the team. Mixed results have ensued, leaving the question of whether FaZe will be making their first roster move of 2018.
