The international roster of FaZe Clan CS: GO was the first among others to qualify for the IEM Rio Major 2022 through the European RMR Group A. They went undefeated against teams like GamerLegion, Fnatic, and Sprout.
FaZe had a really difficult time winning its matches, despite not playing against opponents of world-class caliber; four out of the five maps they played required extra time to decide the winner. The community as a whole is now concerned about FaZe Clan’s ability to perform effectively in the main event as a result of this.
In a recent interview with Jaxon, Finn “karrigan” Andersen named the five CS: GO teams who pose the greatest risk to FaZe Clan‘s chances of winning the Major. This, of course, is contingent on the teams’ ability to qualify for the competition.
I think there are a lot of teams who have shown great potential during EPL. So, the teams that will be a threat are Vitality, G2, Cloud9, and Team Liquid. There is a smaller gap now than there has been the whole year between competitors and NaVi and us. Maybe there isn’t even a gap anymore. We will find out at the Rio Major.— Fin “Karrigan” Anderson, FaZe Clan IGL
According to Karrigan, these five CS: GO teams provide the most competition for FaZe Clan during the IEM Rio Major.
- Team Vitality
- G2 Esports
- Team Liquid
- Natus Vincere
Despite the fact that FaZe Clan did not have the easiest time winning its qualifier matches, the team was still able to win three games in a row and earn a spot in the IEM Rio Major 2022.
It has been a hectic season for everyone associated with FaZe, from the players to the fans, which has led to the following meme becoming quite popular among the CS: GO community.
With their victory over Sprout, FaZe Clan has ensured that they will compete in the Legends bracket at the IEM Rio Major. As a result of their victory in the last Major, FaZe Clan is considered to be one of the favorites for the IEM Rio Major. Despite the fact that their recent performance has left a lot to be desired, the players continue to have a decent amount of faith in their potential to come out on top.
