Gambit, the world’s best CS:GO team has now been knocked out of this year’s largest event so far, IEM Cologne 2021. FaZe beat Gambit in convincing fashion on Ancient 16-13, 22-20 on Overpass, and 16-9 on the final map Inferno.
It comes as a shocker for the community as Gambit is the top team in the world at the moment, ahead of Natus Vincere, G2, Heroic, and NiP, according to HLTV rankings.
The first leg of the quarter-finals saw Astralis beating Virtus.pro 2-1 and advancing to the semi-finals to face G2 Esports.
FaZe versus Gambit Esports started on a rather expected model for the favorites as Ancient ended with the first half 11-4. But the fascinating display of skills by Twistz and Olof, lead the team into winning the game 16-13.
FaZe now faces Natus Vincere tomorrow in a best of three semi-finals.
