Liquid ease past CLG

Liquid keep their hopes of reaching the MLG X Games Aspen semi-finals alive after a 16-5 rout of CLG on de_cache.

Starting off on the Terrorist side, CLG went for a textbook A push in the pistol round, only to be completely slaughtered by Liquid, who defended the site flawlessly, with Nick "nitr0" Cannella getting four kills to his name.

Despite getting a couple of great kills on eco, CLG still found themselves down 0-3 going into their first gun round, in which they decided again to rush A, once again with no success as they were obliterated by Jacob "FugLy" Medina and nitr0.

Liquid continued on a roll here and eventually took the score to 11-0 as CLG's efforts were simply in vain. Tarik "tarik" Celik's side then finally managed to get their first round of the game, but it did little in the way of troubling the former Denial side, who were up 14-1 at the break.

nitr0 led the scoreboard for Liquid 

Things went from bad to worse for CLG at the start of the second half, as Liquid won the pistol round with ease following a mid push. With 13 match points in their hand, it was surprising to see Eric "adreN" Hoag's side take some time to seal the deal, but in the end Liquid ran out 16-5 winners in this one-sided contest.

Unexpected result, Liquid weren't supposed to win, but they played greatly.

They were supposed to win. Cache is one of their best and probably only best map. Almost beat iBP to overtime, so they obviously could beat CLG. CLG didn't know wtf they were even doing, TL kept shutting them down. Everyone was just hyping CLG too much.

I disagree. If someone watched the ex-IBP vs Liquid game, then those people should have know when the map was Cache to bet fast on Liquid. When i saw the map is Cache added fast 0.5 cent to my bet, because I just knew CLG is not as strong as IBP.
2015-01-24 04:16
0.5 highroller xD
2015-01-24 04:20
I had 0.3 on them and then added more. Lost 20 euro on LDLC still trying to climb back :(
2015-01-24 04:23
I was going to bet on Team Liquid originally, but CSGOLounge didn't let me. "All queues are full" or some shit like that. Tried again right before the match, SAME MESSAGE. This is why I don't bet anymore.
2015-01-24 04:53
donate 2 dollars you wont have that problem for atleast 30 days.

2015-01-24 11:03
Why would you best high on a 92-8 game? Those are always ICB.
2015-01-24 11:06
Fnatic lost against LDLC and won against CLG CLG won against LDLC and lost against Liquid Liquid lost against Fnatic and won against CLG Chain logic says that any team can possibly win MLG now...

hopefully, i have no hope for NA teams or kabum in a bo3.

Kabum will make the bomb go KA-BOOM!

2015-01-24 04:02
ez game, ez skins! Best CT map ever, and TT side if you have 145iQ.
2015-01-24 04:02
Most balanced map after DD2, if you have strats...
2015-01-24 04:17
With that theory, Nuke could be balanced if you have strats...
2015-01-24 04:27
It's not..because nuke is not doable at all, whether as a T you have strats or not..CT rotate takes like 10 seconds... except that..those sites are both hard to reach because how much they are open
2015-01-24 04:33
Strats don't just involve taking a site, they can involve a lot of map control. A well thought out strat will take into consideration the rotates, map control, delaying players and in general out playing them
2015-01-24 04:54
NA so consistent /s
2015-01-24 04:02
expected. CLG is shit and got lucky
2015-01-24 04:03
More like CLG isn't that good on Cache and Liquid is. A game I can remember off the top of my head is mSpaz vs Torqued were they nearly lose 16-0.
2015-01-24 04:04
ez
2015-01-24 04:03
CLG literally just took their hopes of getting out of groups and flushed it down the drain. Welp, hopefully Tarik's confidence of beating Fnatic comes through. Inb4 Liquid beats LDLC and CLG beats Fnatic...
2015-01-24 04:03
If you're right, I'll jump off a bridge.
2015-01-24 04:08
Coming with you
2015-01-24 04:17
Yo dawg. It's all possible. Liquid 100% can beat LDLC if the right map is chosen ( they better fucking not pick Inferno again..) CLG..well...on the right map and if Ptr and Tarik can go ham, they can beat Fnatic but it's lesser likely. Hopefully Fnatic will give CLG more respect than they gave to Liquid after seeing they beat LDLC
2015-01-24 04:17
Ya high dawg, if you believe that shit.
2015-01-24 04:43
? Don't underestimate NA teams lmao Liquid can beat LDLC without a doubt if the map isn't an LDLC map and if CLG can pull a miracle the Fnatic win is possible. We'll see though
2015-01-24 04:46
Liquid will never beat ldlc. And CLG is burned out by now.

WHAT!!!!?!? Is that even legal? :O
2015-01-24 05:05
I hate these 'MURICAN lans. Always 10 pc for playing matches and teams waiting long hours for the next match. This is crap.
2015-01-24 04:04
It's because MLG/X-Games wants all games to be played on the Main Stage. All the other LANs are normal, no idea what the fuck you're talking about. CEVO+ESEA Lan had multiple games going on at once.
2015-01-24 04:09
Didn't expect CLG to stomp them but holy crap they just didn't show up..
2015-01-24 04:04
I love Liquid so much. Such a young squad w/ potential. Fuck Torqued. CLG is good, but they got lucky.
2015-01-24 04:04
light the candles boys.

This is by far the best tournament I've seen in CSGO. It's groupstages with teams all over the world and its beeing a roller coaster. CLG upset LDLC LDLC beat Fnatic Liquid beat CLG KaBuM beat C9 NiP beat Dignitas (which is not the surprising thing about that match) C9 beat NiP
2015-01-24 08:43
Underdogs all the way. TY for all the skins.xD
2015-01-24 09:05
ptr burned out after the first game but 1st experience is the best experience :)
