SK beat Liquid to win Cologne Major

July 10th, 2016 18:50

SK Gaming have secured their second consecutive Major title after defeating Liquid 2-0 in the grand final of ESL One Cologne (16-7 on Train and 16-6 on Cobblestone).

The first half of Train was an extremely hard-fought one, and it began with the former Luminosity team storming to a 3-0 lead on the Terrorist side after Epitacio "TACO" de Melo caught two Liquid men by surprise in the pistol round.

It looked like the first gun round would go SK's way after they got the entry frags in the inner bombsite, but the Brazilians could not hold down the site. However, SK would hit back in the following round, meaning that Liquid had to deal with a hard economic reset. Marcelo "coldzera" David then went huge as he clutched the round to give his team an even more substantial lead.

Down 1-6, Liquid tightened up their backline and won two rounds in a row, the second of which courtesy of a quad kill by Spencer "Hiko" Martin. TACO wreaked havoc for the Brazilians in the following round with a quad kill, but Liquid hit back on eco, with Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski picking up three kills. The North Americans continued closing the gap and eventually brought the deficit to a minimum by the end of the half.


TACO was the hero on Train 

The second half began with Liquid going for an inner push, and they almost pulled through after EliGE picked up three entry frags. But then some miscommunication on their part allowed Lincoln "fnx" Lau to get three kills and secure the defuse.

The Brazilians carried that momentum into the gun rounds, shutting down Liquid every time as they ran out 16-7 victors.

Map two was Cobblestone, one of Liquid's favourite picks, and tried their best to live up to that billing as they got out to an early lead after winning the pistol round. They were handed a heavy blow in the third round, however, as SK won an eco, with the Brazilians eventually running away with the lead.

SK showed no signs of slowing down, with the scoreline blooming to a 9-4 advantage for the Brazilians, whose winning streak came to an end thanks to a fantastic AWP ace by Josh "jdm64" Marzano. But Liquid failed to capitalise on that, giving SK the chance to take a five-round lead going into the second half.


SK are the Major champions 

The former Luminosity team further added to their lead by securing the pistol round in a nerve-wracking 1v1 duel won by fnx. After giving up both ecos, Liquid had no margin for error, and they found a lifeline as they won the first gun round of the half. But more misery was about to come their way as SK won a force buy and followed that up with two more rounds to lock down the map 16-6 and secure another Major title.

2016-07-10 18:56
Easiest major win . Fnatic gonna come so hard for next major.
2016-07-10 18:57
Thats what they say since 1 year now. LUL
2016-07-10 20:32
HAHAHAHAHA that is what they are saying since later 2015...nt 4head =]
2016-07-12 20:53
Easiest Major Win? Go there and do better...We had de group of death, we did 100% win to the playoffs...we just lose one map to VP...we won Liquid...Liquid won fnatic...soooo SK>>>>>>>>fnatic! And even if SK took fnatic in the finals they should get rekt...SK is unstoppable at the moment =]
2016-07-12 21:00
Yes it is easiest. fnatic with injured olof. Guardian is not at the same level yet. French scene is fked up. VP is getting old. Liquid is NA. G2 couldn't get Past the groups. So the whole scene is weak . SK have peaked at the right time.
2016-07-12 21:05
Sorry mate...even thorin said no excuses this time...olof is ok and did great at EL...no excuses! Guardian is not at the same level because hi is not training as he should...his fault...no excuses!!! VP is getting old? FalleN plays CS since 2003...he is old...no excuses! G2 was a fluke! Europeans always find excuses for all their failures...SK is a god now and you should deal with it...now the time for jokes against BR CS is over...the world turns ... swallow it! Learn to lose sometimes...see you next tournament...enjoy EL...you will need it =]
2016-07-12 21:17
Let's see next major we will know how capable is SK Enjoy your Victory untill it lasts. Yea scene is shit cozof fans. Br has most retarded fans. I'm not even from Europe
2016-07-12 21:45
NA? If you are NA I am so sorry! S1mple is out of Liquid...pimple insted! NA teams agaisnt EU teams? This time NAVI or G2 will win it...if fnatic does not show up...there is no chance for NA teams if NA playes...they prefer a good excuse to train hard and dedicate themselves as Brazilians do!Do not take the Brazilian's merit on this one =/

Good job to SK but the Brazilians are not very friendly, if you are good job! But most of Brazilians are not friendly, they only support SK and talk shit about every other team. When SK loses to someone, Brazilians call them hackers. Congrats to SK, nobody hates SK, they just hate their fans.

Id say this is by far the most easiest major run. SK vs VP, G2, FaZe, Flipside and Liquid
2016-07-10 18:53
To be honest on paper it was and in sevrer it wasn't. Flipside was a hard game, VP defiantly was, G2 was too, last 2 mhmm, yeah.

Yeah, good to test it again, since SK won, once again, a major.
2016-07-10 22:08
nova 4 way of thinking ill bare with you.. fnatic trashed SK 3-0 couple of months ago, why wont they do it again
2016-07-10 19:08
nova 4 ? lol. you're in denial. yes fnatic could do it again but they have to perform when it matters. and they didn't. now liquid > fnatic. and SK > liquid.
2016-07-10 19:34
im trying to say that losing to liquid doesnt mean that they will lose to SK. clearly a nova4
2016-07-10 19:46
i understood that. yes tyloo could even beat SK. but performing when it matters is most important. clearly you haven't played a lot since you don't know the difference between winning a match in major and winning match in a scrim.

Awsome and crap at the same time. Crap because finale was going to be one-sided - just boring. Awesome, because SK have won 2 x 500k this year so far if I'm not mistaken. Congrats.

I dont have unfortunatelly, sure hltv would give it further on tho. But the thing about cold is that I only saw him playing bad at IEM Katowice this year. Since he joined LG, since his first international event (cologne 2015 major) he ALWAYS PLAYS GOOD, top fraging and so...

So your whole rage is based around you losing something? Liquid beat Fnatic and Na'Vi. Ofc they deserve to be in the final. They just played really bad in the final.
2016-07-10 19:13
Good job SK and TL. Wish Hiko could've won a major considering TL would probably be no where if Hiko didn't do everything he did to help the team. Fallen is Brazillian csgo god.

I blame Team Liquid who performed like shit? It is not about taking sides here, the final was fucking atrocious. Worst final in the history of CS.
2016-07-10 19:16
Yeah... because the teams that would make this final better just lost to fucking Liquid. Obviously Liquid went as far as they could, no one expected them to win bo3 over those teams, congrats to them, they weren't expect to put a real fight against SK. fnatic and Na'Vi were. G2 as well, but they failed even harder.
2016-07-10 19:18
Seriously? Are you saying that this was a good final?

i really don't understand how can people say "cheater", dude, is this a world championship, this never will occur
2016-07-10 20:21
LMAO. Brazilian brain (sorry for the smart brazilian people) with the amazing logical reasoning "world championship, cheating cannot occur" How many athletes lose their title at Olympics games like 7 years later because they were doped. When the competition happened the cheat did not get detected and people thought they won the legit way.

Congrats to SK, some silvers are mad now but even if NIP was the champion they will still call for hacks. Great run from Liquid too, hopefully Pimp will help them to keep playing at great level and S1mple won't be missed too much.

Liquid 2-0'ing fnatic might be the upset/shocker of the year, never would have guessed they'd be able to close out the Swedes in 2 maps ... especially since they had to play Cache. LG though is on another level, when TACO got the 4k in the first pistol I knew it was a wrap.
2016-07-10 23:31
yes its cheats. they have nothing to lose being a brazilian. so they cheat.
2016-07-11 00:02

2016-07-11 00:41
Fnatic went down on semifinals dude. They were statistically the best pistol round team in this major. Salty because VP can't win pistols? VP had one of the worst pistol rounds percentages in the major. Kinda hard to beat the best when you can't get down at least a 50% pistol round win percentage. VP's own fault, my salty friend.

I just pointed out that the best team in pistol rounds won and you call me salty? Haha you are so incecure then, chill dude. It's only game why you hef to be mad? CS is not all about statistics... SK had 4% worse win rate of pistol rounds than fnatic but if they've played face to face it's ez pistols to SK because of tactics. I'm not even saying that it's bad that the best team in pistol rounds won. It's very important part of the game.
2016-07-14 20:09
Oh alright, my bad then bro. You know how it is. Hltv brings out the worst of people. I was assuming you were implying they weren't that good and that they just won because pistol rounds or something. Either way, I'm dumb, sorry. :)

I love this great team since they started as KeydStars in the international scene and it allowed us to watch them, part of them but with the same philosophy. Congratulations to these amazing guys and all of their fans! SK is continuing a new era of CS GO... coldzera, known as Godzera, will be next best player in the world... mark my words. <3 Love from Spain <3
