Day three of the FACEIT Major – London 2018 has come to an end, deciding the fates of the four teams. Two teams advanced to the New Champion round with perfect records, while the other two teams had to pack their suitcases after losing three games in a row.
Here is a summary of what happened on the third day of the New Legend round:
Vega Squadron 0:1 Fnatic – Inferno 14:16 (10:5, 4:11)
Fnatic had an intense match against the sharks, however, they made it through and won the first series of the day. Vega started the T side, with an impressive performance. The team quickly took a 7:0 lead, constantly exploiting the weakness of Fnatic’s defense. Constantly weak for money, the Swedish boys were in trouble. Slowly, Fnatic removed the gauze a few rounds to end CT’s side with a score of 5:10. Moving on to T, Fnatic took the upper hand, recreating the power Vega showed in the first half. A round win meant Fnatic moved up to the 2:1 bracket, ending Inferno map at 16:14.
FYFAEN THANK GOD. ??

HellRaisers 1:0 TyLoo – Overpass 16:10 (7:8, 9:2)
Convincing victory from the European team brought them one step closer to the New Champions title. TyLoo started off rhythmically on the CT side at Overpass. The team took the first pistol round and the next three rounds, including the first round of the HR gun. Taking the lead early, HR started getting a few rounds for themselves. The first half ended with a tight 8:7 score, with TyLoo taking the lead. Going to CT, HellRaisers completely overwhelmed the Chinese opponent. Having the gun round and the next 5 rounds, HR only allows TyLoo to win 2 rounds. Score 10 is what represent China can do. HR quickly ended the series with a score of 16:10.
We Beat @tyloogaming!?

Cloud9 1:0 Winstrike Team – Inferno 19:16 (12:3, 3:12, 4:1)
This is a tough match for both. Major Boston champion found blood sugar in extra time. Both the CIS team and Cloud9 played well on the CT side. Cloud9 started on the defensive side, quickly got themselves a score of 13-2, it seemed that everything was going too easily. Winstriek, despite being led by a large margin, began his comeback, repeatedly destroying Cloud9’s economy, to eventually equalize 15-15. Unfortunately, in extra time, the CIS representative played unconvincingly, with serious mistakes, causing the team to pay the price with a loss of 16:19.

Natus Vincere 1:0 Ninjas in Pajamas – Train 16:6 (9:6, 7:0)
Na`Vi avoided a dangerous situation against NiP at Train. With a good record on this map before, the black gold team started on CT, taking the pistol round and the following two rounds. From that point on, the two sides struggled back and forth. Na`Vi took the lead in the first half, largely due to their pistol round win, scoring 9:6. Going to T, Na`Vi completely overwhelms NiP in both stability and Clutch situations. 0 rounds for NiP on CT side meant Natus Vincere pocketed the final Train map with a score of 16:6.

G2 Esports 0:1 MIBR – Inferno 4:16 (3:12, 1:4)
Made in Brail won convincingly G2, from there to group 2:1. Team America started the CT side at Inferno, with the result completely skewed to one side from the first round. The gun round and the next two rounds were in favor of MiBR, and despite losing the first gun round, the team continued to dominate in the following rounds, leading 12:3. Going to T, MiBR showed their ability from the first half, only allowing G2 to win one more round, before crushing the opponent with a score of 16:4.

Astralis 0:1 Team Liquid – Inferno 16:19 (3:12, 12:3, 1:5)
The most anticipated match of the day between the two forces, Liquid and Astralis. Inferno started with the North American rep on the T side. The team quickly destroyed the defense of the world No. 1 team, taking a 12:3 lead. Contrary to expectations from the audience, the match did not end quickly, when Astralis adapted to the opponent’s play, slowly came back in the 2nd half. Weak money, inferiority to the opponent and the ability to read love Great situation from gla1ve helped Astralis equalize 15:15, pushing the game into extra time. However, Astralis’s effort turned into a ‘success’ when Liquid got themselves a perfect CT in overtime, and then got themselves another round of T, ended 19:16 and won 3: 0 in the New Legend round.
A quick close out as expected!

FaZe Clan 1:0 mousesports – Mirage 16:8 (10:5, 6:3)
The last match was a heroic match between FaZe and mousesports – just losing this match, one of the two strong teams of the tournament had to leave. Mouz started off stabilizing on CT, taking the pistol round and two rounds later. However, the advantage of taking the lead at the beginning of the half could not continue when FaZe quickly rose to remove the gauze. With the battle in their hands, the Karrigan army overwhelmed the opponent. Despite winning the second pistol round, but mouz could not convert that advantage into his own score, losing bitterly 8:16.
On the board. #FaZeUp
