Can reck bring out the big guns?

What to expect from M80 v. FaZe

Time to shine for M80.

Well if this isn't going to be one of the biggest tests ever for this M80 squad. They finally get an IGL, they are cruising through NA CS, and their performance at ESL Pro League Season 19 was pretty respectable. IEM Dallas is going to be a different story, however. M80 will face one of the best teams in the competition while they are still considered one of the weaker ones. M80 have a shot, but it will be difficult.

M80 rolling through

They immediately came back from their ESL Pro League campaign to utterly dominant ESL Challenger League and finished in first place in the regular season. While the competition between ECL and what teams are in IEM Dallas are vastly different, the continued reps will help the team as they look to shock the world.

  • Let malbsMd do whatever he needs to do

  • Swisher has been adapting well to his new roles

  • Is the team more comfortable with s1n's calling?

FaZe Up

Lads, it's FaZe. If M80 get within a few rounds of the most dominant Counter-Strike teams in the world, North American fans should be treating that as a victory within itself. Let's not kid ourselves - FaZe will most likely win. This team just steamrolls their opponents and has only lost three BO3s in the last seven weeks, but this is a best of one and that always means there is a chance.

  • Will FaZe get tricky and throw in a Dust2?

  • broky has stepped up massively

  • FaZe haven't had time to adjust to the new Vertigo

Previous Matchups

These two teams have never played each other.

Likely Vetoes

Dust2 is in, Vertigo is changed, and M80 always bans Nuke. Honestly, the veto is going to be something weird.

  • M80 ban Nuke

  • FaZe ban Dust2

  • FaZe ban Anubis

  • M80 ban Mirage

  • M80 ban Inferno

  • FaZe ban Ancient

  • Vertigo will be played

FaZe have not really had the time to play the new Vertigo, but they're generally more comfortable on the map than they are on Dust2 or Anubis. With M80 being able to tick away three of their best maps, it's possible to see the recently adjusted map in competition between the two.

You can see M80 and FaZe play one another tomorrow afternoon at 03:30PM.
