Astralis are your FACEIT Major champions!
The 2018 FACEIT London Major has come to an end today as the two finalists, Astralis and Natus Vincere, slugged it out in a desperate fight of economy and map control. With an amazing crowd cheering on their respective teams, the tension was high with every frag making a difference in the dynamics of the game.
Astralis dominated on their home turf, Nuke, having an incredible streak on the furnished white power plant during the Major. With Na’Vi taking us to their pick, Overpass, the game came to a dramatic climax as the two teams came to an aggressive battle of attrition. Astralis eventually came out on top, however, becoming a member of the small list of teams that have won two Majors in their career. With some crazy plays from both teams, it’s more than fair to say Astralis is the best team in the world right now with a dominating streak across every other team unlucky enough to come across their path. Congratulations, Astralis!
Like every Major, FACEIT London has proven to be incredibly exciting to watch with the best players in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive bringing their best game to the table. We hope to see you all next time during the 2019 IEM Katowice Major!
