The final day of IEM Sydney is upon us, as the grand final is set between top European teams FaZe Clan and the all Danish Astralis.

The tournament has been an outstanding one, both for the quality of the matches but also the liveliness of the crowd, who in some moments stole the show.


There were also incredible upsets of course, most notably local team Grayhound taking down SK Gaming in a best of three match up, which also gave rise to the infamy of Grayhound player Ollie “Dickstacy” Tierney.

Grayhound were unable to replicate against FaZe Clan though, who despite losing to Renegades went on to take down Cloud9, Fnatic and TyLoo in an impressive run to the final.


Astralis on the other hand have looked near flawless on their route to the final, only losing a single map, making for a very tasty championship match up.

The match is FaZe Clan’s third grand final of 2018, but needed to go one better as they have lost the two previous.

Incredibly FaZe stunned Astralis, taking it 3-0 and despite the maps being close, looked assured throughout. Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovaçs took home the MVP award.

FaZe Clan put on a dominant performance to wrap up their IEM New York 2020 run, walking away with first place, a $70,000 purse, and bragging rights – for the time being.

Even though there were no crowds or in-person events for one of the premier events on the CS:GO calendar, there was plenty of action through every stage of the competition.


It certainly didn’t look like FaZe would blow through the playoffs as they did following the group stage. They did go 2-1, but OG and Team Vitality both looked capable of putting up a fight as well.

When we finally did get to the playoffs, it was all red and black from there. A 2-0 smackdown of Vitality would lead to a Grand Finals rematch with OG, which FaZe would easily win 3-0.
