The formation of the FaZe Clan superteam featuring Guardian, Karrigan, Rain, NiKo and Olofmeister once looked set to dominate the CS:GO landscape, however despite a few notable wins, it never quite materialised as many had expected.

Esports historian and journalist, Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields, has worked in conjunction with the team at Dexerto to release a documentary to cover the failings of what many predicted to be the next CS:GO dynasty.

The journey starts with the formation of the multi-million dollar team, featuring five of the best players in the world, in an era where flashy plays and individual performances could trump cold hard tactics.

We follow FaZe’s journey from the initial success to Major disappointment, all the way through to Karrigan’s eventual exit from the squad.

This is the first of a number of planned documentaries scripted and narrated by Thorin, covering a wide range of subjects from CS:GO through to League of Legends and Overwatch.

Dexerto explores how Vitality was able to win their first tournament of the year at IEM Beijing, pulling out an incredible comeback against a seemingly unstoppable NaVi. 

French CSGO has made a comeback in the past two years, with Team Vitality and G2 Esports working hard to put France back on the map.
While the performance of the two best teams in the region has been admirable, reaching multiple grand finals throughout the year, they have failed to overcome their opponent on every occasion.
After their performance at Blast Premier Fall Series, Vitality looked to be in good form coming into IEM Beijing-Haidian, especially as the addition of Nabil ‘Nivera’ Benrlitom seemed to add another weapon to the Vitality arsenal.
The Frenchmen showed from the start of the group stages how dangerous they could be and how their new sixth member could change the way they approached games.
The finals of the tournament saw the two highest-rated players in the world face each other, with Oleksandr ‘s1mple Kostyliev taking on Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut. Both acting as catalysts for one of the most entertaining series of the year.
The rivalry between the two is only just starting, with a few tournaments still left before the end of the year, both prodigies are looking to claim the title of the best player of 2020.
