Flukes happen, short term results prove nothing. And Liquid wasn't able to maintain it in longer period of time.
I used to be a liquid fan back then, the consistent number 2 is being downplayed but everyone was getting thrashed by Astralis and Liquid was the only one who stood a chance. Thanks to Zews as the coach utilizing the star players.
Then Astralis ran out of gas and that's the only reason Liquid achieved something at the end of the year, not because of stewie offering tactically something invaluable xD
And you can see the starting of next year when Liquid got beat around by random teams and lost their position as the 2nd best team in the world. Soon, Covid came along and then it got even worse when Liquid couldn't even maintain to be the best or even the 2nd best team in NA. Getting beaten over and over by Furia and occasionally by EG? Lol.
But well, if you believe in 1 fluke over year long 2md best team. It's your opinion, a stupid one but you're entitled to it.
