IEM Sydney Champions in 2018 Faze Clan makes a reappearance on the mainstage in front of a live audience at the First-Ever Counter-Strike 2 Tournament in the same city. In the Quarter Finals against ENCE, Faze Clan went 13-5 on Nuke, their own pick, and carried the momentum with a 13-0 ENCE pick Anibus, securing a clean 2-0 series sweep without the necessity for a decider Map of Ancient.

Ence vs FaZe Clan Best-of-3 Quarterfinal Veto: 

1. FaZe removed Vertigo
2. ENCE removed Inferno
3. FaZe picked Nuke
4. ENCE picked Anubis
5. FaZe removed Mirage
6. ENCE removed Overpass
7. Ancient was left over

Result: 2-0 Win for FaZe Clan.

In the post-match interview, Faze Clan's fragger Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken stated, "We really wanted revenge against ENCE." To assist the team in accomplishing this feat, he recorded a K-D of 32-13 with 103.6 ADR and a rating of 1.79. As the Canadian helps FaZe cruise towards the finals, he also seeks to become the MVP of the Tournament.

Over the last seven matches in previous IEM Dallas and Blast.tv Paris Major 2023 Challengers Stage Faze Clan managed only a single Map win but not a single series victory against Ence. 

Then, tomorrow, FaZe will take on Mouz, who have won eight straight games while defeating some of the biggest teams on the field, including Na'Vi and G2 Esports.

P.S: This is the first-ever 13-0 in a Tier 1 LAN Tournament. Whereas, there have been a few 3-0s in a Tier 2/3 Tipsport Prague Cup Spring 2023 Finals tournament last week. Eclot, Entropiq, Sampi, and ECLOT participated in this tournament over LAN in Prague, Czech Republic for $18,610.
