European powerhouse FaZe join Astralis as the first invited teams to Intel® Extreme Masters Oakland! After last year’s third place finish at IEM Oakland 2016, the reformed squad around in-game leader Karrigan and AWPer NiKo have positioned FaZe as one of the very best teams in CS:GO.
Even though the team is relatively new on the block and their have been roster changed, they have an extensive history in the Intel® Extreme Masters circuit. Participating in four stops throughout 2016 and 2017, they continue to improve, however the coveted first place finish has eluded them, but they are getting closer with every tournament they play.
Just look at their ever-improving IEM results:
Even though they have not secured a first place finish at IEM, earlier this year they did take revenge against Astralis from Katowice in the StarLadder Season 3 finals. FaZe secured their first international LAN tournament victory and with that, a new found confidence to continue their journey to the very peak of the CS:GO scene.
Will we finally see the first place finish at IEM that FaZe have been building towards?
