FaZe and BIG clash at BLAST
With their roster in a bit of an unknown situation, FaZe Clan take on BIG for the Upper Bracket Round One of Group B for the BLAST Premier: Fall 2020 Regular Season.
It has been rumored for over a month now that NiKo would be joining his cousin huNter over in G2 Esports, meaning FaZe would lose their star player.
It appears as though the potential short-term replacement should NiKo step out of the lineup is olofmeister, who would be returning to the starting lineup after some time away from the game. No matter should NiKo stay or go, players such as coldzera, broky, and Kjaerbye will be looked upon to step up during this shaky time for FaZe Clan.
On the side of BIG they are coming off a decent fifth place finish at the DreamHack Open Fall 2020 in which they lost to the eventual champions in Heroic.
BIG remain one of the strongest teams in the online era off the back of their starring trio in XANTARES, syrsoN, and tabseN, with the former finally living up to the hype he had during his time within the Space Soldiers organization back in 2018.
This team is incredibly consistent with high level tactics and skill level, but this is a matchup against an opponent with seemingly very little to lose, which means they could end up being rather unpredictable.
SyrsoN will have his hands full as he matches up against broky in the AWPer head to head, with broky being one of the most underrated players in the game today.
FaZe Clan are 3/1 to win and 2/9 to lose to BIG.
