CLG win RGN Pro Series NA

CLG defeated Liquid 2-1 to win the North American division of the RGN Pro Series (14-16 on de_train, 16-6 on de_dust2, and 16-14 on de_overpass).

The North American instalment of the RGN Pro Series concluded last night with a grand final pairing together two North American teams often casually listed as second and third best, CLG and Liquid, respectively.

CLG came into the game after a disappointing showing at ESL One Cologne 2015 this past weekend, where the team took Na`Vi to the wire and nearly advanced to the quarter-finals.


CLG return from Cologne to win an online grand final and $7,000 

With Liquid having to win two best-of-threes and also using the teamlessly woebegone Derek "desi" Branchen as a stand-in for another stand-in, Spencer "Hiko" Martin, Eric "adreN" Hoag's team still managed to take the first map of de_train off of CLG with a 16-14 scoreline.

However, led by the fragging power of Tarik "tarik" Celik, and with AWPer Josh "jdm64" Marzano chiming in as well, CLG managed to take the series over the next two maps, sweeping Liquid on de_dust2 16-6 and grinding out a win on de_overpass 16-14 which nearly saw Liquid come back to take the map.

FNS is clearly a drag to CLG. What if they could find a good replacement for FNS? Or is CLG too attached to a player who doesn't have much value now that he no longer leads? Either way, CLG win, as they ought to. Grats.
2015-08-28 04:55
Wow, they actually won something.

Liquid will never be good with adren on the team. He's been washed up for years and still cant play CSGO. Dont give me the blah blah CSS titles bs CSS was easier than COD

actually liquid's lineup with hiko is pretty impressive! they have that elige guy who is super talented, nitr0 (the 4th best player in NA after shroud, skadoodle and tarik) fugly who is great as a defensive player and a guy that can't call but he is a decent awper, adren. they should recruit dazed as coach/analyst
