Liquid eliminate mouz in Atlanta
Liquid demolished Mousesports on Nuke (16-4), eliminating the European team and getting one win away from the playoffs.
The elimination match between Liquid and mousesports ended up being on Nuke - a map the North American side had decent results on, while the Europeans had not played it in a competitive match for quite some time.
The start of the match reflected that, as Liquid got to a 5-0 lead with mousesports barely making a dent on their defenses. Nikola "NiKo" Kovač picked up four kills on A to get his team on the board, but Jacob "Pimp" Winneche denied their plant on the lower site to reset the European team in the following round.
Spencer "Hiko" Martin and co. continued to roll mousesports, getting a 11-1 lead before losing an anti-eco, again on the A site. Liquid tried to change up their CT side, pushing agressively from secret and ramp, but mousesports won some duels and held off the retake of the A site.
Liquid finally closed out a match in time
mousesports ended the first half with three round wins in the row to make it four all together, however, Liquid took the pistol with a quick vent dive and followed that up with Nick "nitr0" Cannella clutching a 1v2 anti-eco on B.
