mousesports take down Liquid

mousesports beat Liquid 16-13 on Dust2 in the second match of Group B at DreamHack Masters Malmö.

Liquid who climbed up to #8 on our world rankings and who shockingly reached the semi-finals at MLG Columbus 2016 went up against mousesports who made a group stage exit at the Major as they struggled to close off games.

Despite Kenneth "koosta" Suen's entry-kill and a bomb plant, the CT-sided mousesports secured the pistol round with the defuse. The American team bought early on the third round but it did not work out for them (3-0). What worked for them was a mixed buy as they picked up their first round and they went on to get the lead as koosta's AWP-play reigned supreme (4-3).


mouz start off strong

Spencer "Hiko" Martin picked up a quad-kill and was almost able to make it an ace to clutch it for his team but Timo "Spiidi" Richter killed Hiko, tying at 5-5. The back-and-forth half ended with Liquid leading 8-7.

The B-site rush by mousesports gave them an advantage to kick off the half as they won the pistol and the anti-eco rounds (10-8). Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski got two opening kills in the first weapon round but failed to follow it up as mousesports led 11-9.

When the score was 13-9, Liquid called a timeout but mousesports won the anti-eco to make it 14-9. mousesports won a 2v4 to gain six match points but Liquid put on a fight. The American team won a 2v4 and then got their 12th round which triggered a mousesports timeout (15-12). mouz closed it out 16-13.

mouz won both pistols xd
2016-04-12 13:35
are you saying that the result is not reflective of who were the best team? :)
2016-04-12 13:41
It's a BO1 regardless.
2016-04-12 13:43
im just saying, that mouz had more luck than liquid. If pistols didnt count, it would been really even game
2016-04-12 16:42
winning pistol rounds is surely not based on luck.

Yes, and playing with pistols takes more skill than with rifles
2016-04-12 13:55
what?pistol rounds are the Most random shit in a random game
2016-04-12 14:33
Neither pistol rounds are random, nor is the game.
2016-04-12 18:38
its not even my opinion, guns arent accurate and run&gun with pistols is random as fuck ( they arent accurate anyway ) .

Lol, with USP ez 1 tap headshots=random?
2016-04-12 20:57
usp is the only pretty accurate pistol ( deagle excluded ) close to mid -range. also random while running and jumping. running accuracy is bs

Wtf do you want, tunning and gunning is supposed to be random
2016-04-12 21:05
running and gunning should be supposed to fail each and every time and be inefficient. not be random and rely on luck, thats why i said pistol rounds are fucking random because you glock-train into a bombsite and press mouse 1 while strafing and hope to get lucky. same with smgs and even rifles , its still way to strong.
2016-04-12 21:11
Lets Put it this way,the game and pistol rounds have to many random factors to them when the game should only rely on skill
2016-04-12 21:16

Estonia swag420weed 
Agree that too random, but good enough player will get 2-3 ez headshots with usp when the glock train is coming
2016-04-12 21:27
yeah i agree i was a bit overreacting

2016-04-12 13:39
If they write this "news update" at the time when match goes, mad props to the guys who work on this!
2016-04-12 13:42
We write it while the game is going on and we don't have multiple texts for different scenarios. We just write these as we watch the stream.
2016-04-12 15:18
Okay, thanks for the reply...Mad props to your crew, you're doing great job!
