It was a good weekend for more teams than one in Copenhagen. FaZe Clan was finally able to show some promise with their lineup in dominant fashion while Ninjas in Pyjamas managed to get enough points to secure their place in the BLAST Pro Series Global Finals.
The two teams met in the grand finals where FaZe would continue their fantastic run with two close victories. A 19-17 overtime victory on Nuke would put FaZe in the driver’s seat heading into Dust2 where they managed a more comfortable 16-12 victory.
Prior to the final, FaZe had picked up wins against Astralis, Natus Vincere, NiP, and Cloud9 while falling to Team Liquid. Even more impressive as the 16-2 and 16-3 trouncings of Astralis and NiP respectively.
NiP came into the event only needing to fend off Cloud9 and Natus Vincere from overtaking their 10 point lead. A finals appearance and some crucial wins over Cloud9 and Astralis to open up the event which all but guaranteed a top-five finish which is all they needed to keep their lead.

This gave NiP entry into the $500,000 event before they moved into the grand final against FaZe. The event is set to take place at a yet to be announced location in Bahrain from December 13th to 14th.
