The battle is over and the FaZe Clan stood tall at the CS: GO PGL Major Antwerp 2022. The team had defeated Natus Vincere with a convincing 2-0. With this, they brought home $500,00. This win, combined with the one during the ESL Pro League Season 15, means FaZe is now qualified for the World Final.

FaZe entered the tournament at the Legends Stage. This was made possible by getting third place in the European Regional Major Rankings A. At the end of the Legends Stage, the team made it to the top eight and thus qualified for the Champions stage. Their first opponent was Ninjas in Pyjamas which they beat 3-1.

FaZe would be able to get the score to 15-15 and lead things to overtime.

In overtime, FaZe got a quick lead at 17-15 before Na'Vi would get a win for a 17-16 score. However, FaZe wouldn't be denied and won the next two rounds to close the match at 19-16.
