The second day of action at ESL One New York saw FaZe Clan get eliminated after they were defeated by North American underdog NRG Esports.

NRG upset FaZe in two maps, Inferno and Mirage, with Inferno going all the way into overtime and Mirage being a fairly one-sided affair. Despite the best efforts of Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovacs, who got an insane post-plant one-vs-three AWP clutch on Mirage, FaZe came up short in the Group B losers match.
