Staying Alive – EPL Match of the Day


In the marathon that is the ESL Pro League, fans are treated to upsets quite often. Group A was filled with shocking results, and Group B made a promising start yesterday.

Both FaZe Clan and Outsiders lost their opening games against ENCE and Furia.

Today, the two teams will meet, and one of them will be losing their two opening games.

Falling behind this early is a death’s sentence, so rest assured that both teams will try to bring the heat today.

FaZe Clan had a disappointing start to their EPL campaign. A three-map loss to ENCE is not how to newly crowned Katowice champions would have wanted to kick off their stay in Dusseldorf.

ENCE’s Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer has built up quite a reputation as a giant killer, whether through an insane performance of the in-game leader himself or through playing some of the sweatiest Counter-Strike with his team.

But most importantly: FaZe fell short. One could argue that they went from playing in front of the Spodek Arena to a dark studio in Germany, but if FaZe wants to be elite, they have to perform no matter what.

The game against Outsiders has to be won. A loss would mean that FaZe no longer controls their faith.

Waves of aggression

Whenever a team faces Furia, it can go one of two ways: They either shut down Andrei “arT” Piovezan’s antics or crumble under a wave of raw aggression.

Outsiders’ deliberate playstyle had proven an effective counter to Furia, but yesterday it fell short.

A combination between certain individuals not hitting their usual form, a lackluster CT-side on Overpass, and a strong performance from Kaike “KSCERATO” Cerato resulted in quite a convincing loss for Outsiders.

With FaZe, they meet a team they have played quite a bit in the latter half of last year. They traded series at the PGL Major and toppled the European powerhouse on their way to a win in the Pinnacle Fall Series.

The big question is: can Outsiders play their own game without having FaZe disrupt it?
