FaZe Clan have finished in ninth place at IEM Fall Europe following a 2-0 victory against BIG today. This result puts the international CS:GO squad in a good spot to qualify for the PGL Major Stockholm, even though they’re depending on other teams’ results.

Finn “karrigan” Andersen and crew’s future will be decided in the IEM Fall Europe playoffs, which are set to kick off tomorrow. FaZe, Copenhagen Flames, Fiend, Movistar Riders, and ENCE are fighting for the four remaining European slots. To secure a PGL Stockholm Major spot, FaZe need one of these teams to lose in the quarterfinals and finish in eighth place. “We did the best to have a chance to qualify, now we pray,” karrigan tweeted after the game.

CS:GO veteran Håvard “rain” Nygaard and Canadian star Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken played a huge role in FaZe’s victory against BIG today. The pair finished with a 51-26 and 48-17 K/D, respectively, and over 100 ADR. Twistzz made the best play of the entire series, a superb one-vs-four clutch in Mirage’s B bombsite, in which he displayed his patience and precision more than anything.
