FaZe Clan’s incredible lower bracket run continues at the CWL Championship, as they reach the lower bracket final with a win over eUnited.

eUnited has been in formidable form throughout the event, but FaZe Clan defeated them with a 3-0 sweep to secure a top-3 finish and eliminate eUnited in fourth place.

FaZe Clan was sent to the lower bracket in the very first round of the playoffs with a loss to Team Envy, but they’ve managed to work their way to now being within a single win of the grand final.

Their run almost ended in the previous round, with a rematch against Envy. In the fifth map they found themselves down 1-5, but managed to pull off the come-back for revenge.

Hot off of such an intense win, FaZe Clan managed to clinch a tough opening Hardpoint against eUnited, before following up on Sainte Marie du Mont Search and Destroy for match point. eUnited’s tournament life rested on Ardennes Forest Capture the flag, but FaZe denied them to secure the series.

FaZe Clan will now face Team Kaliber for a spot in the grand finals, who themselves are coming off of a loss to Evil Geniuses in the winner bracket final. Team Kaliber had been on a hot streak in the winner bracket, but with EG handing them their first two Hardpoint losses of the tournament they will need to bounce back immediately to contend with the momentum that FaZe carries into that match.
