Faze Clan achieved great success: Winning ESL PL and Intel Grand Slam

As a result of FaZe Clan's 3-1 victory over Cloud9 in the ESL Pro League Season 17 finals, they have won the Intel Grand Slam worth a million dollars. Having won the prestigious Intel Grand Slam for the first time, FaZe Clan is one of only four teams in history that have ever won the prestigious tournament.

The team is also the last in the CS:GO era to be able to accomplish this feat - Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken is the only player in CS:GO history to have achieved this feat twice, after he accomplished it while playing for Team Liquid in the second season of the game.

A total of only one map was won by Cloud9 in the Bo5 final of the EPL. FaZe Clan had the advantage virtually the entire time, even though the match ended 3-1 and we witnessed a lot of rounds going back and forth. There was no question that the direction of the final would be determined from the start when FaZe Clan defeated Cloud9 with 16-13 on the map Overpass, which had been chosen by Cloud9.

FaZe were even more impressive at Inferno and came close to being the biggest winner with a score of 16-9. There was no way for Cloud9 to mitigate the damage on their second map, and in the end, FaZe secured another safe victory by beating Cloud9 16-11 on Ancient.

Twistzz was able to drive his team to victory and a supreme title on the last map with an ace and a clutch in the 25th round of the final map.

Best Players: Robin "ropz" Kool

Robin "ropz" Kool was regarded as one of the best players at the tournament, and ranked second in the overall rankings.

As a result of Zywoo and Vitality being eliminated, ropz is now poised to receive a new level of recognition as an individual. Now that Astralis, Liquid, and NAVI have all achieved success, FaZe Clan has also gotten a million dollars for winning the Intel Grand Slam.

Interesting story.
