Immortals beat Liquid in Austin
The second opener in DreamHack Open Austin’s Group B went the way of Immortals, who were able to beat Liquid on Inferno, 16-11
Immortals, starting on the defending side, were the first team to get on the board, in large part thanks to doubles by Lucas "steel" Lopes and Lincoln "fnx" Lau. Liquid were close to taking the eco, after planting on A and holding it down to a 1vs1, but finally Henrique "HEN1" Teles was able to clutch it out and keep the Brazilian team’s superiority.
The first gun round ended with a 2vs2 after plant on A, but once again Immortals were able to give a little bit more than their North American opponents to keep the match in their favor.
Liquid were able to get one round in the seventh round of the match, but were immediately reset for a 7-1 partial. Despite playing with Tec9 and UMPs, Liquid were able to break into A after getting the opening frag and were able to make the bomb explode to get another round on the board.
hen1 & co. sent Liquid to the losers' match
Null element then got an ace, opening the round with a double and getting the last three after the plant, forcing Immortals on an eco and getting Liquid back in the game. The next round, though, HEN1 was able to ninja defuse in a 1vs1 against Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz, to increase their lead to 8-3.
A slow play from Immortals gave the Brazilians the first gun round after planting on A and forcing Nick "nitr0" Cannella and stanislaw to save their guns. Liquid were able to reach double digits and bring it within two, 12-10, but were unable to bring it back as the Brazilians closed the match out 16-11.
