My bad, i forgot about the Misfits match being on LAN. I also agree that C9 is a good team, my problem with them is they dont have good enough strats, and or patients to win against better and smarter teams, they play very loose and pug like, this leads to mistakes and lack of trades, which makes them kind of choke during hard fought matches.
as for player comparison:
Stewie = Twist (i know unpopular opinion, but i think given the they clutch and form of both, its equal.)
Autmiatic<Elige (overall form almost every match Elige gets 20+ kills sometimes 30+)
Tarik>nitr0 (i dont know IGL wise, but fragging wise 100% seeing how we dont know they comms we won know who is better)
rush>steel (new lineup even if it was old lineup rush>stan)
So skill wise C9>Liquid but as i said it comes down to strats and smart plays, I think Liquid are a smarter team than C9, and if it came down to a bo3 on lan with the current lineup with both 2 weeks of playing together (the team) i think Liquid would win.
But we wont know till the current lineups face of so we will have to see, either way they are both amazing teams and i will enjoy each of there matches.
