PGL Major Antwerp 2022 Grand Final: FaZe vs. Natus Vincere Prediction & Preview
The grand final is between FaZe and Natus Vincere. The match will be a best of 3 played on LAN, and it starts at (20:00 CET). This is by far the biggest tournament ever, and the winner will receive $500K and a ticket to the Blast Premier World Final 2022, and the loser will receive $150K. What’s interesting about this match is the fact that these two teams are top 2 ranked best in the world, where FaZe currently holds that #1 rank spot and Natus Vincere holds #2. Winning a major is not the same as winning a normal LAN event, because Majors only happen once or twice a year so these moments are truly special in the Counter-Strike scene.

Ever since this roster added Ropz to the mix, they’ve jumped to a top 2 team in the world. FaZe currently have 3 players that are in the top 20 in the world, Broky, Twistz and Ropz. Two of these are riflers, while Broky is an AWPer. The team communicates in English because it’s an international squad, however, they don’t lack any communication on the server when you watch them play. Ropz remains the highest-rated player with Broky. This event is special for Karrigan because he’s been in a final before and lost (FaZe vs Cloud9 major), and it was a terrible choke from them after being up 15-9 on the last map and needing 1 round to be crowned as the champion. He has worked hard putting this roster together, so this moment here is special for him as he’s looking to win his first major. Opponents they have beat this event: Eternal Fire, Vitality, BIG, Mouz, Ence, Bad News Eagles, Cloud9, Copenhagen Flames, NIP, and Spirit.
Lineup: Broky, Twistzz, Ropz, Karrigan and Rain.
Natus Vincere have pretty much been the best team in the world for a very long time now. S1mple is the best player in the world and when you have him on your team it pretty much makes everybody’s job easier around him. S1mple currently has a rating of 1.37 which is absolutely insane, and the 2nd player behind him on his team is the youngster B1t with a 1.17 rating, so the difference is huge. S1mple has 1 major trophy and tonight he will be looking to add another one to his collection. He is arguably considered as the GOAT of Counter-Strike because of how good he is and all his achievements. This team is a CIS team, (3 Russians and 2 Ukrainians), so they communicate in Russian. Teams they have faced this event: Vitality, Forze, G2, BIG, NIP, Heroic, Ence.
Lineup: Boombl4, Electronic, Perfecto, B1t, and S1mple.
FaZe vs Natus Vincere Prediction
Natus Vincere map pick here will be Map 2, and the odds here should be around the 1.60 mark, so we are playing that edge. The veto could go many ways, however, we are expecting NaVi to pick Dust 2.
Pick: Natus Vincere Map 2 ML
