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.
