FaZe destroy OG hearts - and coldzera's legacy

Guess which team was disappointing at BLAST Premier Fall?

You guessed it right. Well, probably. If you've read our newsletter before, you know exactly who it was. OG, as per usual, just crumble under the pressure, every time they look good.

The perception was shifting, OG are Actually Good (BLAST even, bizarrely, referred to Aleksib as a 'legend of the game'); so said the people. OG, much like Tottenham Hotspur, are at their worst as soon as people think they might be good, and go out in last place in Group C.

A close loss to NaVi is understandable, but a similarly close loss to FaZe Clan in September 2021 isn't quite as acceptable for a team aiming for glory. Aleksib was out-fragged massively by karrigan and actual legend olofmeister as OG bombed out in last.

Could be worse, though.

One of the other so-called legends, coldzera, got absolutely blasted by olofmeister. Y'all ever get 16-0'd by the team you left?

Turns out, coldzera is a bit of a specialist in getting 16-0'd. It's now happened to him FIVE TIMES. Deciding map, qualification on the line, and FaZe go out and 16-0 Complexity. That's a paddlin'.

Five times! On five different orgs! Think about that for a second. This is a guy a lot of people say is one of the greatest to ever play the game, and nobody has been 16-0'd more than him. That's... somewhat inspiring?

blameF picked up just two kills, for crying out loud. olofmeister, on the other hand, went 20-4. Who said you can't teach an old dog new maps?

NaVi, after kicking Complexity down to the lower bracket, then dominated the guys who humbled them. They're looking pretty god damn unstoppable right now. You might be able to handle coldzera, but you can't stop the GOAT.
