Throughout the Grand Final, Faze Clan’s map presence couldn’t assert much-needed dominance. In contrast, TSM has been really consistent & proactive. Several desperate attempts from Faze Clan were completely pushed back by Wardell & Drone. Individual performance from TSM also saved them from losing multiple rounds, specially in Haven. Even with a slow-paced start, TSM maintained the upper hand.
Jimmy “Marved” Nguyen’s excellent performance kept Faze Clan away from a 3-0 clean sweep by TSM. Moreover, Wardell’s mediocre performance on Split & lack of map control also resulted in a 13-6 victory for Faze Clan. Nonetheless, TSM’s run in the UMG Closed Qualifier Has been outstanding.
