HR take down Liquid in Columbus

First match at the MLG Columbus 2016 Main Qualifier came to an end as HellRaisers beat Liquid 22-20 on de_dust2.

Liquid have recently added Kenneth "koosta" Suen to their lineup but because koosta qualified with another team, Eric "adreN" Hoag is back with them for only this tournament and if they qualify, the $1,000,000 major.

To start the game, T-sided Liquid decided to try a mid-to-B push but it did not prove to be successful with HellRaisers stopping the American team on their tracks. HR didn't make a mistake in the eco rounds of their opponents and Emil "kUcheR" Akhundov clutched in the first gun round when he was in a 1v2 situation to bring the scoreline to 4-0.

Spencer "Hiko" Martin & co. got their first round after giving up six to the European squad. Having taken the wind on their backs, Liquid earned themselves four rounds to put their rivals in a tough economical situation. The streak ended at six as Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný dealt huge amounts of damage to Liquid players with a Scout. The half concluded with Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow & co. 8-7 ahead.


adreN is standing in for Liquid

Despite winning the pistol in the second half, Liquid lost the anti-eco which led to four consecutive rounds by HellRaisers. They had the chance to pick up another one but couldn't capitalize as adreN secured a round for his team with a quad-kill (12-9).

Nick "nitr0" Cannella prevented a match point to get his team their eleventh round followed by a 5-on-5 retake by the Americans (14-12). They went on to get a match point and had a 2v1 advantage on the last round to close it out but ANGE1 had a crazy highlight moment as he killed his last opponent on A site while jumping which meant they were going into overtime.

HellRaisers only got one of the three rounds available on T-side and started their CT-side 16-17 behind. Liquid gained a 5-on-3 advantage and planted the bomb but HellRaisers pulled off an amazing retake to tie the game at 17-17. The Americans once again had a match point but Hiko fell short in a 1v2 as oskar came up big. HellRaisers finished it off 22-20 in the end.

If you only look at the stats, sure. But he's the awper on dustfucking2, he's supposed to get a lot of kills. And did you see how many easy shots he missed?

yes, but liquid made a lot of mistakes in that 30th round. elige push, nitro peek aswell was stupid

Not surprised. Chemistry not yet built. I said it would take months. Not surprised with result. Insert koosta would have probably pulled out the win on raw skill alone. But Liquid will not become dominate until the 2nd half of 2016.
