peacemaker: "Hard work pays off"

Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu talked to HLTV.org about Liquid's route to the grand final of ESL One Cologne and what they need to do to grab the Major title versus SK Gaming.

Liquid have continued their surprising path throughout ESL One Cologne with a two-map semi-final victory over match favorites fnatic despite losing all four pistol rounds in the process.

We reached out to Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu to talk about the fnatic rendezvous, what Liquid's communication was like after Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev's crazy 1v2 clutch and what lies ahead in the grand final versus SK.

You can find the rest of HLTV.org's videos by going to our YouTube channel here.

EASY for Finnish Professional Electronic-sports organization «ENCE eSports», containing insane player Juho «Juhob» Lampinen, who can handle both the main rifles and the AWP (Arctic Warfare Police sniper rifle), incredible support rifler Mikko «xartE» Välimaa who recently won large Vectorama 2016 tournament with his team, professional rifler Miikka «suNny» Kemppi whose decisions make ENCE's opponents literally cry, irreplaceable Tom «stonde» Glad who uses Razer DeathAdder 2013 mouse @ 400 DPI in combination with 1.75 in-game sensitivity to crush his opponents, and of course absolutely crazy Counter-Strike: Global Offensive AWP (Arctic Warfare Police sniper rifle) player Aleksi «Allu» Jalli, who is only 24 years old currently and who has already reached his top-level form, from the nordic country Finland (officially the Republic of Finland), sovereign state in Europe.

Huge respect for this guy. Comes into a typical inconsistent NA team without structure and new roster and brings them to the major final.

like you said, hes a kid ;-) one day he'll regret, but w/e..... i'd rather play with a decent teammate and try to get further than playin with a salty hero like simple, he also has his bad days ofc, what do you do at that moment? he'll be extra salty and fuckup the complete atmosphere, so.
2016-07-10 13:10
Yes, that's what I've read, and I actually understand him because moving from Europe to USA is hard, even harder for a young lad. It's bad for the game that he can't overpass that weakness, but well, he deserves to feel ok to play. P.D.: I really bet an eye that the freakz0id bully thing has a huge impact on his decision.

im sad that nobody mentioned peacemaker... im from europe, and i like that NA slaped EU right in the face, maybe our guys will realize that the time of easy wins against NA are over... maybe not, but liquid is ready for europe... peacemaker did an unbelivable job and i think that he doesnt get enough attention... he knows what he does, just listen his interview, its so obvious that he works well
