Featured Match: Cloud9 CS vs FaZe Clan CS

The ELEAGUE Major Qualifiers are on again and all eyes are on the grudge match between Cloud9 and FaZe to bring the heat today. FaZe head into this match the favourites after knocking Cloud9 out of the ECS Season 2 finals with a comfortable 16-6 victory.

These two teams are intimately familiar with each other, and with playing each other at ELEAGUE, having faced off four times already in Season 2. This time around, the ELEAGUE Major Qualifier will use the Swiss format, which means that the two teams were randomly paired because of their similar win/loss ratio.

FaZe will have their fingers crossed for Mirage, a map where they consistently come out on top against Cloud9. On the other side of the pond, Cloud9 will be looking for Train, their strongest map against the Europeans.
