Luminosity to Major final over Liquid

Luminosity are through to the grand final of MLG Columbus after edging past Team Liquid 2-0 (19-15 on Mirage and 19-16 on Cache).

The early stages of Mirage were played at a incredibly high pace as rounds went back and forth following insane individual actions. Luminosity opened up the game with a fast push, storming through the A site, but then Spencer "Hiko" Martin replied in the first eco round with a quad kill, taking advantage of a poor plant attempt from the Brazilians. Liquid were in for a hard reset, however, as Lincoln "fnx" Lau picked up two crucial kills with the Desert Eagle to give his team a clear route to A.

Luminosity kept pressing hard and won five of the next six rounds, but then Liquid finally managed to put their foot down to hold back their South American rival, cutting the gap to 5-7 after winning three rounds in a row. Marcelo "coldzera" David put an end to Liquid's streak with three important kills, but then the home side bagged the final two rounds to keep the deficit to a minimum.

Liquid came from the break looking very strong and won the first four rounds to force Luminosity to call a timeout. After the pep talk, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo gave Luminosity a much-needed round with a quad kill inside B, but Liquid hit right back, resetting the economy of the Brazilians.


coldzera pulled off one of the highlights of the year

Eric "adreN" Hoag's side followed it up by winning the next five rounds to bring it to map point, and that is when insanity began. coldzera went huge and stopped an apartment push with four kills with the AWP, including a jumping double kill, and Luminosity started picking up round after round. Liquid were crumbling under pressure, and not even a timetout at 15-13 allowed them to prevent the game from going to overtime, in which the Brazilians would string four rounds rogether to take the lead in the series.

Next up was Cache, where Liquid were in dominant form during the early stages of the game, strolling to a 4-0 lead. Luminosity were then on the brink of claiming a round but were denied by Hiko, who sensationally won a 1vs4 clutch with the bomb planted. The game was already threatening to spiral out of control for Luminosity, but FalleN made sure to remind everyone that his side would not go down without a fight and won a 1vs2 clutch.


Hiko had a 24-5 half as CT on Cache, but it was not enough 

Luminosity then went on a great run and brought the scoreline to 6-6, but they were unable to take the lead as Liquid managed to claim the final three rounds courtesy of Hiko, who ended the half with a 24-5 score.

Liquid carried the momentum into the second half and won six rounds in a row to bring the scoreline to 15-6. Many believed that the game was about to come to a close, but it was a repeat of the first map as the North Americans were unable to apply the finishing blow. As rounds went on, Liquid spiraled into a state of disarray, and some very questionable decisions in a number of rounds allowed Luminosity to force overtime once again.

Starting out on the CT side, Luminosity picked up the first two rounds of overtime before Liquid finally got one on the board, bringing an end to an 11-round winning streak from the Brazilians. But it did little in the way of stopping Luminosity, who would claim back-to-back rounds on the Terrorist side to seal a dramatic and hard-fought 2-0 victory and progress to the grand final of the Major.

2016-04-03 11:13
HAHAHAHAHA ADAM You can try everything you want to prevent LG going to finals, like forcing them to play 2x bo3s in the same day, forcing them to play without preparation against Liquid, YOU CAN TRY EVERYTHING, but in the end talent + heart will prevail. WE SMART, WE LOYAL, WE FRIENDLY, WE ARE FROM BRAZIL!

This is why thorin says brazilian fans are the worst and most toxic. You're not friendly at all. I love LG they're all good people but fuck the rest of you conceited favelas, so0o0o0o conceited
2016-04-03 03:21
Don't judge us because of these kids :(
2016-04-03 03:33
yeah i'm sorry that was mean to generalize. But honestly there are a lot of brazilian fans that are just beyond rude and pretend like they're not. I mean that applies for everyone in every country but it's pretty bad in brazil. Sorry though man!
2016-04-03 04:36
NP, unfortunally is the true though :/
2016-04-03 04:37
I looove rio! Been there twice. Best place on earth, Acai smoothies, jesus those are good. But i didn't like the crime : ( but copa and ipanema! So good.
2016-04-03 11:57
Don't worry, I bet the majority of Brazilian CS fans are civilized people. It's just that the uncivilized ones yell the loudest. I'm a C9/Liquid fan but I'm still going to be rooting for LG in the final since I have always liked them as well. I hated to see how some Liquid/NA CS fans booed LG when they came out, people need to learn to respect their opponents.
2016-04-03 04:40
So true, i was ashamed over the mericans when they "buued". Thats a patethic act but typical USA. LG played out of their mind and fully deserved the Win! Go LG!! Win this major
2016-04-03 09:50
Taco is a toxic rude person as the rest of the LG squad who insulted s1mple on twitter just cause he knifed Taco... Brasilians are to proud of everything they do its like an infection.
2016-04-03 15:42
Are you serious? That was one time. You seem to forget that simple is the most toxic player in cs history. And YES, he's gotten better after this "New simple" thing, but still toxic.
2016-04-03 15:48
no i dont forget that but ive never seen an ukrainian write "we are friendly"...LG fans do it all the time and it pisses me off cause LG isnt friendly at all.
2016-04-03 15:54
To a certain degree thats true. But one incident (taco) doesen't mean the entire team. Especially fallen seems like a super humble guy.

he is right, though. lumi only won because liquid couldn't close on either map with the huge lead, and lumi started playing dirty. maybe they should have pulled an astralis and taken that timeout on match point. before you ask how much: i don't bet.
2016-04-03 04:37
playing dirty is the crowd like wallhack shouting the position of players
2016-04-03 04:50
Thats inevitable. If you want to blame someone, blame it on the organisers if things like crowd's voices could be heard.

You shouldnt be proud about a fucking line on a world map dude cause brazil, germany and america and so on are nothing else then some stupid names for regions in the world and you are proud of something you didnt help to evolve at all.

You think jumping awp kills are skill based? He gets one standard kills and then a 100% lucky collateral kill and then a nice no scope. 1 of the kills was very easy, 2 of them was 100% luck, last noscope was skill and nice but not highlight of the year wtf

This is the first time ever that i will call a team "chokers", they got to 15 rounds on both maps, but somehow let them comeback and still lose in OTs :)

2016-04-03 03:08
everyone says a choke but they just came the closest to beating lg out of any teams, even fnatic. gg liquid.
2016-04-03 03:08
They weren't just beating them, they were pummeling them. Ridiculous amount of tilting.
2016-04-03 03:09
I mean, i expected cache to be 16-6, but mirage? As a fan i was mad af with that game. Liquid was only hitting b in the beginning and they were only playing with Taco there. Then, they delivered mid to Liquid, when their game was never like that. If they play mirage against Navi, if they play like that, they will get crushed.
2016-04-03 03:19
I'm at a loss for words 15-6 15-9
2016-04-03 03:09

Liquid deserved a 3rd map I think. But great game, fun to watch! Good luck in final LG.
2016-04-03 03:09
They should've won the fucking maps handily Jesus Christ. It's not even a matter of deserving a third map. They had LG dead to fucking rights. Shit must be embarrassing.

2016-04-03 03:11
I think LG never lost a BO3 to Chokenitas, only for NaVi and fnatic

It felt to me more that Liquid Lost the game , Than LG won.Liquid lack the ability to reset their mentality, LG learned to do it just like fnatic, so you can only say that the game is over when you get 16 rounds off of them. GL to both NaVi and LG tomorrow, probably gonna be one of the best series of 2016.

youtube.com/watch?v=G2cK2D2Iams That's what I imagine it felt like for Liquid. LG have cold blue steel running through their veins. Insane mental capacity. I feel bad for Liquid, but I was rooting for LG the whole way through.
2016-04-03 03:53
LG played out of their minds, the most epic comeback i've ever see. That cold 4k, TACO with the autosniper, LG played with heart, soul and nails, against the crowd, they silenced 30k people and casters. Gg LG You have a big heart best series in the major so far. Tomorrow will be more epic. TACO>liquid
2016-04-03 04:02
The crowd is 10k people and to be honest it was more Liquid shitting the bed than it was LG being amazing. To each their own though.
2016-04-03 04:32
Yeah man but lets be honest too muchs things against LG that game, sometimes the crowd reactions let the guys at liquid now what was going on.
2016-04-03 04:34
Yeah there was some ghosting going on for sure, but thats been going on all tournament. You guys on stream might not hear it, but the crowd gasps a lot when player's crosshairs hover over other people and cheer when a shot through smoke connects. Did it happen a lot for Liquid and not at all for LG? Yeah for sure. At the same time, I think it impacted about 3 plays, and even then Liquid should really close out those games. Like, any other top 10 team and LG loses if they play the way they did today, and I think it'll show vs Na'Vi tommorow.
2016-04-03 04:52
I agree if they play like today they will lose aginst navi, they need to step up, play the maps they know (inf, train, over, cbble). Also, about the ghosting, in matches like this where a play can give you a round and that round can give you the entire game, this shouldnt and cannot be a factor. This should be a must for these events.
2016-04-03 05:00
I agree, I have no idea why there were not soundproof booths. And even on maps they know, I think they will lose most of them. Na'Vi will flat out win on Train, Mirage, Dust II and Cache, whereas LG will win on Inferno and Cobble - Overpass is a toss up really. My guess is Na'Vi ban Inferno, LG will ban Cache, Na'Vi pick Dust II, LG picks Cobble, and then a random map. If that map isn't overpass I don;t see LG winning ever.
2016-04-03 05:08
Does Navi play cache?, because i think LG would ban d2 instead of cache.,
2016-04-03 05:11
Na'Vi does play Cache yeah. And while Na'Vi are stronger on their D2 than on their Cache, I would say LG are also stronger on their D2 because their Cache needs work.
2016-04-03 05:13
I didn't see LG on d2 in a long time (last time was 16-0 against fnatic), so i'm not sure about that one. Tomorrow will be a fun match to watch.
2016-04-03 05:19
Agreed, gonna get there super early to get my pins and decent seats but I'm really looking forward to it. Hopefully it goes to three maps but I'd settle for an awesome 2-0.
2016-04-03 05:21
I still have hopes for LG, let's see what happens, send some pins to Argentina :P. Have a fun day tomorrow man!
2016-04-03 05:23
and, LG and NA'VI are used to play against each other, 2 teams that know each other very well.
2016-04-03 06:36
Maybe next time bro ;) sorry but LG too strong team right now. Told you about heart and soul, in finals that's what is the most important thing.

I was in the crowd, the entire stadium was having issues watching because it was so painful watching Liquid throw away round after round. Honestly, Liquid gifted LG this BO3. They should not have won either game but did, more through Liquid choking than phenomenal play. Good series, but honestly should not have had the result that it did.
2016-04-03 04:31
Are you going tomorrow? In that case, cheer for NaVi!
2016-04-03 04:35
Of course I'm going back man lol. For sure cheering for Na'Vi, I think they're pretty decent guys (despite my minor dislike of Zeus). Cheered for em vs Astralis and pissed of the people sitting next to me and I'll def cheer for em vs LG.

tbh I'm going to be screaming for Na'Vi. With or without my help they'll beat LG 2-0 or maybe 2-1, but LG will lose unless they play three times better than they did today and Na'Vi doesn't show up.
2016-04-03 05:10

Liquid wouldn't reach that far without the support from the crowd anyways, cold himself admitted that the crowd was interrupting them and ghosting, but it proved to be a two sided knife, as Liquid couldn't close out the games because of the pressure of the crowd.

"The moments the crowd got loud, yeah it was kind of hard and especially in the Liquid game [not the VP game]. When the crowd became really loud, it got in the middle of our communication and it was hard to communicate. Sometimes even the way the crowd reacted in certain situations that were occurring, it kind of snitched the plays we were doing to the Liquid players so that's a bit of a change from the booth that we're used to playing with." Coldzera. obviusly crownd ghosting , in all game...

Omg... 15-9 -> 15-19. Then 15-6 -> 16-19. Jeez. Most depressing loss in CS for me.

That's some real fucking choke mate. Now only if edward and guardian play their game in the finals, they can win it. Guardian needs to wake the fuck up

Well deserved LG! So patethic when the dumb. Mericans started to "buu" on the brazilians. So typical merican, stupid.
2016-04-03 09:43
Is unreal for me how LG suck dick against NA Teams over and over again why? WTFFFFFFFFFFFF they suck in every NA Tournament
2016-04-03 09:51
GG wp LG. Great series. LG strong on short again. cold locked down cat/ladder room. Aggressive rotations, trying to meet the rush with 4-5 made the games very interesting. Liquids b fake and taking a without a fight was crazy. Great games, heads up liquid, you done us proud. GL LG, you can bring it home, navi is hungry for this though.
2016-04-03 09:59
well said brah, well said
2016-04-03 11:44
they didnt lock down cat for shit...its just that once Liquid lost LG's 10th round on mirage, they started playing slowly which is way different from what was winning them rounds. they literally won 6/7 gun rounds when they hit b on mirage. They shouldn't have changed up their gameplan.
2016-04-04 03:14
gg I hope Liquid learn from this
2016-04-03 10:02
I hoped Liquid won this match, to prevent LG from being rekt by NaVi. LG are fun team, they dont deserve for rekt.

2016-04-03 14:38
i never supported NA teams because im not interested in their scene but seeing how the crowd cheered so hard for Liquid made me cheer for Liquid too and god damn, its so painful to watch how they choked 15-9 and 15-6 back to back maps :(:(:( this shit really hurts, i hope i never ever experience something similar im still in shock about what happened
2016-04-03 15:29
I noticed that the Brazilians so toxic , wow
