Map 2: Overpass (Pick: Heroic, Winner: FaZe, Final Score: 16-12)

 Overpass is a map that FaZe historically struggled on but they looked much better heading into the match. With qualifications on the line, FaZe got off to a supreme start on their defence. Despite trading around early into the game, they never looked off their pace which made it difficult for Heroic to do anything concrete.

The first gun round of the game went in favor of FaZe but Heroic shut them down shortly after to make the score 3-1 in their favor. From there, Heroic could extend their lead to 7-1 before FaZe put up their second round on the board. Heroic managed to swiftly regain composure, but a 1v3 clutch from Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken helped FaZe retaliate as the scoreline read 8-3 in favor of Heroic. The rest of the half was a one-sided showdown from Heroic, as they ended it with a score of 12-3.

FaZe put up a good defense on the pistol round of their CT side and converted the anti-eco as well as the gun round to make the score 6-12.
