The Halo The Major Grand Final will be a rematch between eUnited and Cloud9. EUnited took down FaZe Clan in the bottom bracket finals in an intense five-match series today.
FaZe started the series with an impressive 2-1 CTF victory over Bazaar. FaZe successfully completed the task of cleaning up eUnited before the flag ran out and won the victory point just seconds before the end of the match. EUnited couldn’t get hold of the flag before the bell rang forcing sudden death and had to regroup for map two.
EUnited responded with a 50-42 Slayer victory on Live Fire, overwhelming FaZe in gunfights and halting their momentum. Spartan shows how he can die and almost gives up 20 lives for good measure. FaZe had a good teamfight and only lost 8 lives, but eUnited went away with a victory on the second map.
FaZe started Oddball with an excellent round win when they got a hold of Skull with ease. But eUnited responded by winning the next two innings, although in the third round FaZe was close to coming back. FaZe stopped eUnited at 99 and hit 85 before eUnited prevented a comeback. Snip3down tried to protect the skull, but eUnited ended up taking the last second to win the game.
Strongholds on Recharge is a walk in the park for FaZe. They always control almost every power weapon on the map and maintain the limit of three multiple times. EUnited tried to recover but only broke 100 points. FaZe closed the game with a score of 250-105 and confidently started a series of fights on map five.
The fifth and final game of the series was Slayer on Aquarius, and both teams had one last chance to make it to the Kickoff Major Finals. FaZe couldn’t maintain the momentum from their previous win, and eUnited continuously dominated and gradually took the lead. EUnited’s KingNick showed just how devastating the Dynamo grenade can be in Halo Infinite as he gets two kills with ease.
FaZe tried to regroup and end the cycle of death, but eUnited didn’t want to let the chance to get revenge on Cloud9 slip away. They ended the series with a 50-43 win and secured a spot in the final.
The FaZe Clan’s Kickoff Major is over, but they took an impressive third place, 11,000 HCS points, and a $39,000 prize pool. EUnited will face Cloud9 in the Finals tonight.
