FURIA outclassed their opponents by Damage Difference and KAST, but also they were pretty good in utility damage.
The only negative side here is a flashbangs efficiency.
Also, we shouldn't forget that more than half of the year FURIA played in North America events which makes their numbers a bit too high.
Yuurih brought insane pure impact in 2020 – his damage difference and KAST numbers are incredible. Also we'd like to mention high utility damage.
Negative side: first bullet accuracy and flashbangs efficiency could be better.
Sad thing is that FURIA were unable to play against the top teams for most of the year.
Just because from what we have seen when they came to Europe last fall, it could have been an exciting year for FURIA. Even more exciting then they had.
In general, FURIA's performance was well-balanced, without real weaknesses.
