FaZe Clan Wins BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen
By Max Mallow
FaZe Clan won BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen Saturday defeating Ninjas in Pyjamas in the grand finals.
FaZe Clan's new roster featuring Marcelo "coldzera" David and Helvijs "broky" Saukants swept the Swedish ninjas 2-0 with close finishes on both Nuke and Dust II.
FaZe added coldzera and broky after parting with Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovacs and Filip "NEO" Kubski. The lineup failed to make it out of groups at ESL One New York in its debut, but bounced back nicely with a trophy lift here before heading to IEM Beijing.
Copenhagen was one of the stronger BLAST CS:GO events featuring Team Liquid, Astralis, Natus Vincere, Cloud9 and the two finalists. Astralis ended up defeating Natus Vincere in the Pro Standoff showmatch.
The final BLAST Pro Series event of the year will be the Global Finals in December. Taking place in Bahrain, FaZe, NiP, Astralis and Team Liquid will battle it out in a double elimination bracket for a shot at the $350,000 grand prize.
The BLAST Pro Series Global Finals take place Dec. 12-14.
