Who's The Champion of ESL Pro League Season 15?
Topic: ESL Pro League Final S. 15
Two teams .. one dream! With FaZe and ENCE we got the (surprise) winner of IEM Katowice 2022 on one hand and an European mixed team on the other hand. FaZe is about to prove that they belong amongst the best teams in the world after an amazingly strong performance over the last few weeks.
Right before the Major, the originally American based team, is rising up to be a title contender. But what do we expect from ENCE?
General information regarding the final
The final will take place today (10.04.2022) at 5 p.m. CET and will be played out as a bo5! ESL Pro League Season 15 started on 09.03.2022 and ESL once again managed to set up an amazing event. 24 teams competed for the final two spots today. The huge international team, in front and also behind the camera delivered a great viewer experience. Make sure to not miss out today's grand final at 5 p.m. CET live on:
Runs in the event
Interestingly, both teams started their journey in Group B, and furthermore, neither of them finished off first! While FaZe Clan had a tough start to the group after winning IEM Katowice, ENCE managed to win their three opening matches, one of them against FaZe Clan.
The team around IGL karrigan already feared elimination after the first two days of play but managed to win the two deciding bo3's against Vitality and FURIA on matchday four and five. The European mixed team around IGL Snappi only lost one of their group stage games against FURIA and managed to convince throughout the whole group stage!
Both teams entered the playoffs in round one and managed to convince against different top teams. While FaZe Clan pulled off impressive 2:0 wins against NAVI and FURIA, as well as a 2:1 win against Players (Gambit), ENCE beat Fnatic, Movistar Riders, and NiP on their way to the grand final!
FaZe #1 in the world?
In an interview with hltv yesterday, ropz answered the question if you could call FaZe the #1 team in the world right now with "Yes" and today is the day to manifest that position. (Source) After winning IEM Katowice they have their second final appearance in a row and have beaten multiple top teams along the way.
Today the whole month of ESL Pro League comes to an end and for FaZe and ENCE it feels like they're starting once again, as those two also faced each other in round one of the event. FaZe seems to be the clear favorite and is the more experienced team when it comes to bo5 finals, but ENCE can't be underestimated after their great showing this event. Who are you rooting for? Let us know on our Social Media!
We wish both of them nothing but the best and can't wait to witness another magical CS:GO evening. Enjoy watching everybody and have a great start to the week tomorrow!
