Liquid win RGN NA Intercontinental II

While much of the day's evening action here in North America was centered around the CEVO-P Season 6 finals, North American contender Liquid secured themselves a first place victory in the RGN Intercontinental II series as well.

In a world of no work weeks, Liquid very well may have qualified for the CEVO-P Season 6 finals that took place this week, however the team were forced to forfeit their remaining matches due to scheduling issues with the offline finals.

Regardless, Eric "adreN" Hoag and his men stayed busy and competitive today by winning the online RGN Intercontinental II series in North America, netting a healthy $2,000 prize as well as an invite to the RGN Pro Series in North America (for which dates are upcoming).

Liquid made it through to the grand finals as favourites, and ultimately found themselves facing off against Fenix Fire, an up-and-coming squad that many in the North American scene have had their eye on as of late.

However, the difference in tiers between Liquid, who competed at the ESL One Katowice Main Qualifiers and MLG X Games Aspen, and Fenix Fire was noticeable in the series.

Despite putting up a solid fight, Fenix looked unlikely to take the series to a second best-of-three and ultimately expired, giving Liquid the win with scores of 16:7 on de_mirage and 16:9 on de_cache.

16th April 2015

The final standings and prize-pool breakdown are as follows:

1. United States Liquid - $2,000
2. United States Fenix Fire - $1,000
3. Canada SYNRGY - $500 

Intercontinental II play is not yet over as the Spaniards of Atlantis are scheduled to face-off against Gplay in the grand final of the European contingent; the game will be added to hot matches as soon as info is available.

tier 10
2015-04-16 07:22
2015-04-16 07:25
At least CLG beat tier 1 teams.
2015-04-16 07:43
There are no tier 1 teams in NA. CLG/elevate/C9 are tier 2 at best.
2015-04-16 08:09
Katowice closed qualifiers + the X Games MLG tourney.
2015-04-16 08:20
There were no tier 1 teams at the Katowice closed qualifiers (except mabe Titan) and as I recall, only EU teams made it out of groups at Aspen.
2015-04-16 16:33
Top tier NA teams, phrased it poorly.
2015-04-16 08:30
CLG has beaten envyus and titan which are both tier 1 so I think CLG is a tier one team.
2015-04-16 08:59
GPlay has taken maps from Envy and trains and often beats Titan. Gplay Tier 1 confirmed... Kappa. Also Titan is not Tier 1.
2015-04-16 09:30
If Titans not tier 1, how many teams are? like 6?
2015-04-16 12:40
One good tournament doesn't make them tier 1. By this logic GPlay is tier 1 too, Titan very barely beat them in a Bo3 lan few days before the ESL tournament. Flukes happen. Titan need to prove themselves this year. Then we can talk about tier 1.

Beating EnVy in BO1 doesnt make them Tier 1 lol.. You dumb fucks even think PTR is a fucking god after the show he put up on MLG against EnVy. He never performed that well ever since.
2015-04-16 11:12
your thinking is wrong
2015-04-16 13:21
Fantastic logic 10/10

Why so much hate ? You guys should be happy that there are a lot of competitions, with a lot of teams which make the game more interesting for everyone. Also, they never said they were tier1 team but at least they are trying to achieve something while you're trying to drag them down. In the end, it brings a lot more of exposure for the game which is definitely good.

2015-04-16 22:23

Ah, thanks. This clears things up a bit :D
2015-04-17 19:11
lol this cup was worth it more than the CEVO finals to begin with. if you count the lost wages from work for traveling to MLG stadium and the cost of the trip itself.
