"This new C9 lineup lacks firepower"

Rush: No

Yes I’d say this.

These games with Faze never fail to deliver. GG Faze.

Would you guys say Tarik is one of the best decisions c9 as an organization has made? The more I watch them play the more I see how much impact Tarik has in their games. He's fucking good man

Not to overreact, but FNS is the solution.

Benevolent mastermind billionaire philosopher FNS with the merciful 2-0 to spare us an inevitable Inferno double OT

But real talk, he must be crying maple tears of joy right now. For years, he's grinded, working his ass off to prove himself as a true IGL. Finally, he gets the sendup to be at the helm of a world class team, a team able to 2-0 FaZe on their two best maps. Dreams do come true guys.

ATTENTION ALL TEAMS -

PLEASE KEEP YOUR STAR PLAYERS ON LOCK. THE FAZE MONEY TRAIN IS ABOUT TO STOP BY AND TRY TO STEAL YOUR STAR PLAYERS.

4 czs

1 scout

no utility

FNS is such a beast, I still remember the day he made the Theory of Relativity, right after discovering fire and founding Quantum Physics

Someone tell FaZe that they haven't reached the finals yet

Karrigan: No

NaVi contemplating putting an ankle bracelet on s1mple rn

who would win?

a fully equipped terrorist side?

or 4cz bois

I too would also say this but I feel like one of our opinions is worth more on this matter

Xizt: Why.

I think it was really good for Skadoodle to get some time off between yesterday and today. The inactivity really took the pressure off.

🤔

Can't wait for olof to come back, Xizt just simply isn't good enough for such a loose and individually reliant team like FaZe.

It seems your boy FNS has unleashed a beast in RUSH. This C9 is showing such insane promise! I'm very excited for their future

overview for faze this match

map 1 - we are on the comeback and we are outplaying c9 slowly at A - lets rush through a smoke at monster

map 2 - we are winning all of our rounds on A - lets keep trying B

Sadokist: N*****

wouldn't it be awesome if the fans gave Tarik the nickname of Cthulhu and during clutch time you'd here the crowd roar

"Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn."

and we watch tarik ace

u/Cloud9Jack

CZ:GO

Karrigan: You're not Olof

thank mr fns

We are all equal in the eyes of cthulhu

Who would win? A team created by the best players from all over the world or a turkish youtuber

Yeap, he had 7 kills in 5 rounds, and in next 25 rounds he got only 4 kills.

You say that as If CZs aren't up there with AKs for 1 v1 gun fights

4 cz bois every teim

He should just Brett Favre it and retire after every event.

Get one for Flamie too and cuff them both to Zeus.

Automatic in my opinion is C9s best player. He’s definitely one of the most consistent.

We're gonna need a pronunciation guide for this one...

Happy: Where am I and who are you people!?

I feel like if any roster could afford to have an IGL that was weak in fragging, it would probably be faze and then Cloud9 is up there with anybody else. I mean they literally won the major on the back of just absolutely insane skill, and Stewie was far from their best player.

You watch so many of these rounds where FaZe just show off their superior aim and CT aggression and you gotta ask yourself - how the fuck did C9 win? 

Both pistols and well-placed resets definitely proved to be the game-winner on Overpass, but C9 had bad starts to both halves on Mirage and still won. I guess C9's T side shines whenever the CT side isn't too aggressive (like G2 was), and FaZe were just sloppy af on their T side, giving up lots of picks. I absolutely despise C9 spamming retake A setups, though, they had the most success when they had plenty of people on A.

Great game for Ska, much better than yesterday! RUSH stepped up as well, really nice to see.

That beast's name? Oprah Winfrey

thank mr FNS 🙏

C9 have some insane retakes on Mirage, really great to watch.

All he had to do was nuke brazilian CS so a spot would be available in C9. The long con paid off.

The "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn." is silent. So it's just U-S-A!

Legend says FNS saw a little girl on the bus years back, and she was crying after being bullied for being black. He gave that girl money, comforted her and told her she’s destined for greatness. This girl grew up to be Rosa Parks.

Since stepping down from the IGL role, his fragging has improved massively, and he was already fragging well when he was IGL. He's really been a huge asset to the team.

He actually founded Quantum Physics without it but realized regular people couldn't understand without something else, so he made the Theory of Relativity up on the spot real quick

Such a nice lad

I feel bad for Niko; so many insane plays but not quite enough. Rush is an absolute beast.

Yea he fucked up few times, but he gets around 20 frags on almost every map, tbh you dont need more frags from your IGL, thats amazing number for any of the best IGL's

The secret is that winning a major is the best content.

There was a special Counter-Strike game about this gun called CS:CZ even before a release of CS:GO

Cloud9 : “We got this” Meanwhile at SK Stew : “f*ck this”

Jeesus christ C9 vs Faze is always so entertaining, that last round though dhfjsgkjg

Great day to be a C9

Thanks to all the fake fans that swapped Flair's when Stew left

I swear, if I see a team pushing out monster at matchpoint against a force one more time, I'll fucking lose it.

poor Niko...

I feel this FaZe team has just lost all of its charm at this point, it’s hard to watch a team constantly put themselves in positions that are near impossible to win.

Kariggan made two same horrible calls, both came with C9 having already 15 rounds and with C9 force buy.

tarik and autimatic are king makers for C9

it'd still somehow come out as "U-S-A!"

Thank you, I would rather have a IGL then stewie.

Rush said it himself, not only does he get to go back to his favorite role, but he also performs better in a roster with strong structure.

So easy for Tyler "It had to be done" Latham

Also rush’s resurgence has been a revelation. I think the biggest benefit this move has brought to c9.

thank mr fns

Kng: Prove it..

Sure faze do have amazing aimers on their team but c9 do aswell. tarik and tim are some of the best aimers in NA (id put them at naf/elige level)

I really thought the monster rush would catch C9 off guard, but i guess it never really does.

However on mirage, i cannot understand why they didn’t emphasize A more heavily than they did

Yeah but what do you know?

If s1mple goes to FaZe I'd kill myself

Team Content

God my American erection is huge right now

We still don't know his endgame

Allu: Are the redbulls for the commercials or can we drink them?

Wait, you’re right.

CS:CZ = CZ75% Win. CS:S = CS: Scout

4 CZ 1 Scout valve confirmed op a decade ago

Probably because nobody else was available as a temporary player. Doesn't really make much sense otherwise.

mousesports flashbacks

Imma let you finish but the theory of relativity is foundational to quantum physics, FNS discovered the theory of relativity first.

RUSH had 0 impact at ticket booth

Well because when he's ticket booth it means he's solo A and they are running a retake setup. He could always go 1 for 1 and make it 4v4, but 4v4 generally favors the Terrorists.

FNS is the greatest mastermind tactician to ever exist in any FPS game in the universe

It s gonna be while. Even 6 months in CS is a very long time.

Yes! Go C9! I wish they make it into the finals, probably if they do is versus SK...

Tarik insight: stew & ska clashed a lot

They are def in top 5 NA, but NiKo and rain are a level above and this match proves it. It's insane how smoothly and consistently they can deliver in every situation.

best part about tarik is the crazy stuff he does. he had some true watermelon brain plays that made them win both maps

his fragging has improved massively

Has it? Maybe it appears more impactful. But over the last 10 or so events with stew, his average rating was really close to Tim's, the difference was less than 0.01. Tim and Tarik both had the highest ratings in the team.

Tyler " Let me fuck over Faze one more time " Latham ?

We don’t deserve Lord NiKo.

Nice to see he had impact on both maps too, he fucked up a few times but yeah.

When niko pulled that 360 spinning shoot ting, i almost died

His transformation from CLG tarik to Optic/C9 Tarik has been insane. Who knew he just needed a solid team. Maybe it was a confidence thing

"This team is gonna suck. Gotta change flairs now!"

LETSFUCKINGGOBOYS

thank mr fns

On mirage you can practically take mid control for free if the CT’s have 4 CZ’s

It's because on CLG they played so heavily around AWP, giving all resources into it and Tarik would end up with just a 5-7 too often.

Tarik and Autimatic are legit world class players. Neither are crazy flashy in the way that s1mple or Niko are, but they feel like a poor mans Fer and cold. I feel like which is which is obvious

FNS: no

If skadoodle doesnt headshot guardian and tags rain and xizt, the round could probably have gone Faze's way, FNS kills the second guy in apps ( rain ? ) only because he has less than 25 hp.

CZs didnt make or break that round alone, shit decision making from Faze and Skadaddy tagging 2 and killing one are the biggest factors imho.

Well, thats obviously why you have the scout
