OpTic crush Liquid 16-2
OpTic pick up their first win by defeating Liquid 16-2 in the opening game of the ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals.
Following a clean pistol, OpTic took the first gun round to ensure a strong start on the Counter-Terrorist side. Liquid managed to grab a round by pushing B to make it 1-4, but were instantly reset in the subsequent one.
Despite the announcements from the team, we still saw Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas using the AWP a lot, and with a lot of success - locking up the B site together with Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz who had some massive multi-kill rounds.
Liquid were getting shut down all over the map and found themselves 12-2 down going into the last round of the half. Nick "nitr0" Cannella made an entry on B and helped his team to get into a 4v2 after-plant situation, but Spencer "Hiko" Martin and co. still lost the round due to a fast smoke-defuse by Tarik "tarik" Celik.

After an A rush yielded them the pistol round win, OpTic weren't troubled and closed out the match with a quick 16-2 to secure their win, and a potentially important +14 round difference.
