Liquid was overall the 2nd best team in the tournament looking at stats. Look at how close the match was with Vitality and Navi when they lost. Look at their performance with EG and NAVI when they won and think that in 1 month with a new roster they had to train every day and had to think about new strategies. Being top5 is well deserved.
They were, frankly, playing at the same level as Vitality and NaVi. Regardless of winning or losing, all matches were really close, coming down to clutches and stuff. I really like what Liquid's been showing us
