IEM Sydney 2018: All your content in one spot
IEM returns to Australia with IEM Sydney 2018, one of the biggest esports event to hit our shores. 16 teams from around the world including our local teams compete over three days for a $310,000 AUD prize pool. Respawn Ninja was invited by ESL to cover the event. From player interviews to videos, you can check out their coverage here.
FaZe defied all odds at IEM Sydney, taking down Astralis, a team considered to be unstoppable in the lead-up to the event, 3-0 in the grand final (19-17 Cache, 22-20 Overpass, 16-14 Train). The team have been without Olof “Olofmeister” Kjabjer since the start of April due to personal reasons and have instead been using NiP legend Richard “Xizt” Landström. A poor start in the group stage for FaZe was quickly remedied by convincing wins against Cloud9, Fnatic and TyLoo on their way to the grand final. Respawn Ninja caught up with champions - FaZe Clan's NiKo in this interview, check out the full article here.
