NiKo went 21/7 on Wednesday in a 16-1 win over Team EnVyUs in Group A at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
ANALYSIS
The group stage began on Cache where NiKo opened up with a huge quad kill hold on the A-bombsite to secure the pistol. NiKo went on to help secure the following anti-ecos, but once EnVyUs got on their buy round the streak stopped at three rounds. However, NiKo and co. made sure not to give EnVyUs any room as the team went on to pick up a 14-1 half before sealing their win with the remaining two in the second half, thanks to NiKo's team-leading 138.6 ADR and a 2.06 rating.

ANALYSIS
GuardiaN's group stage journey began on Cache, where he contributed to the quick 3-0 lead. ENVyUs managed to break the streak in Round 4, but GuardiaN continued to press on, winning 11 rounds straight thanks to his Round 13 1-vs-2 clutch on the A-bombsite to help secure the 14-1 half.

Secures first offline win for FaZe
April 18, 2018
Xizt collected a 16/5 KD on Wednesday in the 16-1 crushing win over Team EnVyUs in Group A at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
ANALYSIS
Rather strange seeing Xizt rocking the FaZe Clan colors in his first official offline match with the team, and it went quite well. The group stage began on Cache where Xizt held the line through the pistol and the following anti-ecos to secure the 3-0 lead. Team EnVyUs got in the way in Round 4 but FaZe continued to march on through a dominating CT-side to secure the 14-1 lead going into the second. Unfortunately, Team EnVyUs had nothing left to fight back with Xizt's 92.9 ADR in the win.
Dismal performance on Overpass
April 15, 2018
NiKo posted a 32/31 KD on Wednesday in the 1-1 split against Fnatic in Week 6 of ESL Pro League Season 7.
ANALYSIS
The series began on Inferno where NiKo and his team marched through the first half to dominate on the CT-side for the 10-5 lead going into the second. Despite Fnatic's three-round come back, NiKo sniped down three on the B-bombsite entry to secure the first round in the second half. From there, it was all FaZe as NiKo finally secured the series lead, thanks to his triple kill in the 1-vs-1 to claim the win, posting a team-leading 26/14 KD and 108.0 ADR along the way. The series shifted to Overpass where NiKo has seen better performances come from his T-side as he was only able to help secure three rounds in the first half. Down 12-3, NiKo struggled through the second half as he only picked up a 5/17 KD and 40.7 ADR in the 16-5 loss.
Quiet on Overpass
April 15, 2018
GuardiaN went 29/35 on Wednesday in a 1-1 split against Fnatic in Week 6 of ESL Pro League Season 7.
ANALYSIS
GuardiaN began the week on Inferno where he opened the first pistol round win by tapping down three on the A-bombsite hold. This allowed FaZe to secure the following anti-ecos, however, Fnatic contested to keep the economy to a minimum, but once GuardiaN got the AWP in hand the rest was history for Fnatic in the 10-5 half. A slow start eventually saw GuardiaN get back on the AWP to help claim the remaining six rounds to take the series lead, thanks to his 20/17 KD and 96.1 ADR. GuardiaN has had better performances on Overpass as his offensive side was being picked apart by the Fnatic defense, who didn't allow GuardiaN the economy for the AWP in the 12-3 deficit going into the second. Not much would come GuardiaN's way in the second half as he took a series split as Fnatic claimed the 16-5 Overpass win.
