The semifinal match between FaZe Clan and Fnatic provided a look into a titanic clash of two great CS:GO teams. That also meant there was some great plays by both teams throughout the match.
So, let's take a look at the plays that littered the semifinal match.
6. Close Defuse By JW
This was a huge play by Jesper "JW" Wecksell. He picked off Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer to eliminate the rest of the FaZe players and then needed to defuse the bomb. But, the bomb was covered with fire and he didn't have a kit.
He rushed in, with little health and was able to pull off the defuse.
5. Krimz 1v3 Shutdown
This time, Freddy "KRIMZ" Johnasson was not able to clutch up and get the 1v3 to win the round for Fnatic. Nikola "NiKo" Kovac saw right through it and was able to shutdown the effort to secure the round win for FaZe.
4. FaZe Win Eco Round
Things looked a little bleak for FaZe heading into the second round, they were still using pistols while Fnatic had a whole artillery of weaponry at their disposal. That didn't seem to mean much to FaZe as they won the eco round.
3. Lekr0 AWP
Fnatic rounded off the first half of the second map against FaZe with some strong performances such as this play by Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson with the AWP. He closed out the first half with a double kill by using the AWP to take out two of FaZe's members.
2. NiKo Double Tap
Nikola "NiKo" Kovacs pulled off a quick double kill to win the round for FaZe on Mirage, FaZe were already up 10-6 and this kept pushing their lead closer to a map victory. He made it look effortless by quickly disposing of Fnatic's players.
1. Golden Ace
The best play of the semifinals came courtesy of Maikil "Golden" Selim. He was able to pull off an ace against FaZe Clan. Sure it wasn't as clutch as getting it when your team is on the ropes, but he literally just sprayed down the entire FaZe Clan team to win the round. Quite a great play.
