G2 vs FaZe Preview and Predictions: Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2023

Members of Heroic are waiting on the Semifinal stage to fight the winner of this G2 vs FaZe matchup

FaZe are approaching this match with the IEM Katowice 2023 wound still unhealed as they faced a 0-2 defeat against G2 in that event – an event where huNter- and his teammates went on winning the entire tournament after that. The victors of this fierce encounter will have to face the #2 global ranking holder Heroic, a squad that’s been looking fearsome this year with their IEM Rio 2023 and Paris Major adventures. With G2 being the CSGO betting favorites of this Best of 3, will they be able to repeat the Katowice run? Here’s what we think.


After a dominating win against OG, G2 tasted their first defeat in IEM Dallas when faced with the sheer power of Heroic. m0NESY and his squadmates struggled to find answers in both maps, with the 4-16 score on Ancient being their worst, a map where their newest addition Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen had a terrible 6-17 K/D and a 0.37 rating.

G2 vs FaZe


With broky and ropz starting out strong on Mirage, it almost looked like FaZe would get a 2-0 victory against Cloud9 after a 16-7 score on the first map, especially with Abai “HObbit” Hasenov and Timur “buster” Tulepov underperforming on the opposite side. However, the second map was a mirror-opposite score in favor of the Russians, even with broky continuing his reign, which he did on the final map as well to close out the series with a 2-1 score.
