Luminosity and Tempo Storm continue their advance to domination in North America by making it early into the DreamHack ZOWIE Open Austin semifinals following respective wins over Cloud9 (16-3 on Mirage) and Liquid (16-10 on Cobblestone).

Four teams advanced to the best-of-one winners' matches at DreamHack Austin following respective wins in their groups: Luminosity, Tempo Storm, Cloud9, and Liquid.

The Group A winners' match kicked off on Mirage as the Alec "Slemmy" White-led Cloud9 tried to continue a new-found wave of momentum following a shutdown victory over CLG earlier. Unfortunately, Luminosity, the second best team in the world, had other plans and quickly pulled off a 15-0 CT half on the map.

Despite Cloud9 winning their CT pistolround on the second half, all it took was a single gunround from Luminosity, which happened to be the first one, and the Brazilian team advanced to the playoffs early with a 16-3 victory.

Liquid went into the second winners' match and tried to give the hometown American crowd more to cheer about compared to the previous game as they faced off against Tempo Storm on Cobblestone.

Careful defense by the American team gave them the CT pistolround as Spencer "Hiko" Martin was able to close out a one-versus-two, but a standard "no respect" aggressive Tec-9 buy from Tempo quickly broke down Liquid's economy and equalised the game.

Off the back of this round win, Tempo Storm surged ahead and it was only a 3K from Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski to bring the score to 6-2 for Tempo Storm that gave Liquid some space in the game but, following two accrued rounds, Tempo continued to power forward to a 11-4 half.

With Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles far in the front for his team in terms of impact, the twin brother of Henrique "HEN1" Teles was able to get three USP kills and give Tempo Storm the second pistolround of the game, moving the score to 12-4. However, Liquid paid Tempo Storm back in kind for their second round Tec-9 buy with a similar Tec-9 buy that paid off and gave Eric "adreN" Hoag & co. some breathing room.

Liquid were ultimately able to get as close as ten rounds in before the Brazilian side buckled down and closed out the game, 16-10.

Damn, those Brazilians are insane on LAN. NA teams should take note. Hard work and motivation will pay off. I hope there is an NA team in the finals, but sadly that's probably not going to happen

I think the problem NA teams is that the best players do not get on the same team, is one in each team, so can not have a fixed team to be considered the best, just with each NA team has its phases as better and not a constant, while in Brazil the best players are between TS and LG. Srry for my bad english.
2016-05-07 07:19
No no. They just need Hard working.
2016-05-07 07:21
No, I think the problem is the work ethnic. Alot of people don't realize that NA players get paid a pretty nice salary, regardless of how well they place at tournaments. It is a business after all, and as long as the orgs get name recognition and views, that's all they care about. The players don't care about becoming the best, because they will get paid good money either way

Brazilians barely met any resistance today, they just completely out-classed their opponents. Probably really frustrating for NA teams to play against such monsters in their own region, well, it was a Bo1 after all, maybe they have some chances in Bo3 series.
2016-05-07 07:20
I believe in bo3 series will be even worst since Brazilians map pool is very good for both teams.
2016-05-07 07:21
BO3 against LG will be torture for any NA team. But TS's map pool isn't as deep so a BO3 can work out better for NA perhaps.
2016-05-07 07:23
I mean, Bo1 maps veto system puts NA teams on a good map for TS\LG preemptively because of a bigger map pool, but in Bo3 there is only one ban for each team and third map supposed to be chosen randomly, so NA teams should have a good shot at least at one map.
2016-05-07 07:29
If anything is good for them, you cant improve playing against lowbobs and winning all the time.
