FaZe Clan will face Heretics in the Group D elimination match as part of the cs_summit 6 group stage. The cs_summit 6 tournament is a sixteen team tournament with a $125,000 prize pool. It is also a Regional Major Ranking event.
The third-ranked FaZe Clan has an aggressive play style that relies heavily on the players’ firepower and understanding of the game. The team suffered a heavy blow when Olofmeister took a break from CS:GO due to burnout. After adding Bymas as a stand-in, NiKo has stepped up to the occasion, often getting crucial entry frags for the team.
FaZe Clan has an extensive map pool and they are comfortable playing on the entire map pool except Vertigo. The team has a high win-rates on Dust2, Mirage and Train.
Heretics features a French CS:GO roster and is ranked 22nd in the world. The team lost last time around 1-2 to Team OG. Two of the maps in this match were 3-16 losses for Heretics, highlighting the team’s lack of preparation on most of the maps. Going up against FaZe Clan will be a tough task for the French players due to their lackluster map pool.
I am going with FaZe Clan for this match. With NiKo in brilliant form, CS:GO fans can expect him to put up big numbers against a team outside of the top twenty.
