FaZe eliminate Heroic to secure IEM Cologne playoff berth, NAVI through to semi-finals over Astralis

Published

on

FaZe clashed against Heroic in the IEM Cologne Group B lower bracket final, a series that went the distance on Mirage (16-10), Nuke (11-16) and Ancient (16-10), with the international squad coming out on top to eliminate the world’s No.4 team out ahead of the playoffs in Germany.

In the upper bracket, Natus Vincere topped the group to secure a spot straight into the tournament’s semifinals as they took out Astralis in a three-map affair on Ancient (16-7), Dust2 (19-22) and Inferno (16-5).

Robert “⁠RobbaN⁠” Dahlström’s men will have a big match in the quarter-finals, as they will go up against Gambit for a chance to face Natus Vincere, while Astralis will start their playoff run against Virtus.pro on the other side of the bracket, where G2 sit in the semifinals.

Heroic didn’t waste any time on FaZe’s map pick, Mirage, imposing their will and dominating the early rounds on the defense before going on to hit double digits before the switch. FaZe then flipped the map on its head as they went on a rampage with Olof “⁠olofmeister⁠” Kajbjer and Helvijs “⁠broky⁠” Saukants taking point to seal a flawless defense, bagging the map 16-10.

FaZe kept up their CT momentum on Nuke, with broky firing on all cylinders from the very beginning, but a much more reactive Heroic kept things close early on to get into striking distance in the second half, where they put forth a strong showing as CTs to tie things up with a 16-11 scoreline.

The series came down to the line on Ancient, a map Heroic have proven to be hard to beat with a 3-0 record. Although FaZe weren’t able to keep up early on, the international squad turned things around with Finn “⁠karrigan⁠” Andersen putting on a show to get his team ahead before turning up the heat on the attack, not allowing the Danes to build up an economy on the way to a 16-10 victory.

Natus Vincere took the pistol round on the CT side of Ancient, Astralis’ pick, by stopping a B play, after which the CIS squad then went on to control the first ten rounds, giving up just two in a very dominant side that put Aleksandr “⁠s1mple⁠” Kostyliev and company in a great place to take the map. Astralis fought back, coming out on top in the second pistol round, but were too far behind to stop NAVI from taking the lead in the series, 16-7.

Astralis started the all-important Dust2 defending, and brought back a pistol round loss by winning a forcebuy to gain momentum early on, and although Natus Vincere put on a lot of pressure the Danes held their own with a four round streak to bag the first half 8-7. The CIS squad buckled down on the CT side and hit match point first, 15-13, but were taken to the brink by Emil “⁠Magisk⁠” Reif and company, who stole the map in overtime to force a decider.

Natus Vincere didn’t skip a beat attacking on Inferno despite the hard loss on their map pick, imposing their will and keeping Astralis’ economy in check throughout, hitting double digits with s1mple leading the way. The CIS squad won an unlikely retake on B in the second pistol round to keep charging ahead unmatched, closing the map out cleanly 16-5 to secure a spot in the semifinals.

All ranked mode rewards for Pokémon UNITE: Season 1

Published

on

Pokémon UNITE features different types of rewards for every game mode available in the game, with most being awarded right after a match ends. However, for ranked mode, most of the best rewards won’t actually be available until the end of an ongoing season. 

Players who enter ranked mode in a MOBA title are typically more confident in their abilities and are looking to play in games with players who are also looking to improve and test themselves against others. 

UNITE uses a seasonal approach to its ranked mode, meaning players will have a set amount of time to climb through the six individual ranks, trying to reach Master Rank by the end of that season.

The ranked mode rewards will be split into two distinct parts, one overarching reward that players can work towards and is mostly about improving while playing games, while the other is based on your highest rank achieved during that season. And this doesn’t take into account the various missions that require playing ranked mode to claim bonuses too. 

So if you plan on competing in ranked mode for and period of time, and potentially plan on trying to climb the ranks, here are all of the ranked rewards for Unite’s first ranked season.

Are there ranked rewards in Pokémon UNITE?

Published

on

Pokémon UNITE has multiple game modes for players to pick from in order to control what type of experience they will have with the MOBA. For most players, this will end up with getting a squad together and jumping into ranked matchmaking once they learn the basics of the game. 

Ranked is where players can go to challenge themselves against players trying to improve themselves, and typically features more coordinated strategy, higher-level gameplay, and closer matches overall. 

Because this mode is considered to be the more competitive battleground for players, UNITE has six distinct ranks that players can reach, with five of them also having multiple classes within the rank to differentiate skill levels during the climb. Starting with Beginner: Class 1, players will work to grind Performance Points, which will help them reach the next rank and match up with even better players.

Like with most games, UNITE does have rewards that will be given out to players who participate and grind ranks in ranked mode, with those rewards being given out at the end of every ranked season. You can check the current season’s rewards by hitting the X Button when sitting in the ranked lobby and then selecting “Season Rewards.”

Starting with ranked season one, it appears that every player will get some special rewards just for participating in at least 20 ranked matches. After that, there will be scaling rewards based on a player’s highest rank achieved during a season.

You can expect all of the rewards to change when a new season begins, with TiMi Studio and The Pokémon Company sharing more details in the game when that happens.
