Liquid have eliminated Virtus.pro at ESL One New York after beating the Poles 2-1 (16-10 on Inferno, 6-16 on Nuke, and 16-5 on Mirage).

Liquid took on Virtus.pro in the Group B elimination match at ESL One New York. Inferno was the first map in the best-of-three series and Virtus.pro started on the CT-side on the map.

Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski and Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas won a 2vs3 post-plant in the pistol round and the Polish team went on to win the first five rounds of the map. Liquid responded with six rounds of their own and then led 9-6 at halftime.

Liquid stay alive

Over on the CT-side, Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz secured the pistol round with a triple kill to extend "" 's lead to 10-6. Liquid won the first weapon round with stanislaw's 1vs2 clutch, making it 13-6. Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken's ace ended the game in Liquid's favor (16-10).

Just like on Inferno, Virtus.pro won the first five rounds on Nuke, but this time they did so on the T-side. Liquid won three rounds in a row to answer but Virtus.pro led 10-5 at halftime. Virtus.pro closed it out quickly, winning 16-6 and taking the match to the third map.

VP get another disappointing result

Liquid won the first nine rounds on the CT-side on Mirage. Although Virtus.pro got their first round on the board in the tenth round, they couldn't start a streak and trailed 2-13 at halftime.

Liquid won the map 16-5 and series 2-1, eliminating Virtus.pro in the group stage in New York. Liquid will face Astralis in the Group B decider match.

Unlikely... They have the rest of 2017 at least Also people gotta give liquid credit, they're not some scrubs that beat VP, they're a solid team and they just recently beat SK in a bo3 aswell
2017-09-15 23:50
While true, VP have been under performing since the ELEAGUE Major back in January.

Well actually they've won a premier lan in February, and they just recently finished top4 in the major. They are still doing better result wise for 2017 than all teams except 3...

That top 4 at the major sounds good but if they were in form it should have been a second apot at least
2017-09-16 01:16
Top 4 in a major with immortals in the finals
2017-09-16 02:40
And you want G2 or Envy in the finals ? :)))))))))
2017-09-16 04:00
They had to beat North then lost to Immortals... it's not like they took down SK and FaZe.
2017-09-16 04:30
I think its time to call this line up quits as well
2017-09-15 23:48
Nothing new VP is dead idk why they was invited
2017-09-15 23:49

Doesn't change the fact that he has been VP's most consistent player this year, and lately only one in VP who is playing on his level.
2017-09-16 01:26

2017-09-16 11:54

Rip VP. Once upon a time it was very fun to watch them play, especially vs. another aggressive team.
2017-09-15 23:50
yeah but now Snax is in-game leading and he is fckn horrible back then it was Neo or TaZ

2017-09-15 23:53
OK VP officially died! they were known as the NA Killers but now not even that stands. I don't get it their Nuke is so good, but why couldn't they transfer the form into Mirage?! You just beat liquid on the same map 1 week ago. And VP's true strenght comes infront of the crowds, but they can't qualify for them..:

I am always the one to say that it is better to work stuff out before changing a lineup... VP is long overdue for a roster change, and they need to start changing before guys like Snax or Byali call it quits.
2017-09-15 23:59
I feel bad for pasha.
2017-09-15 23:59
yep he is the only who seems to care. for several months...

2017-09-16 00:01
sk isn't better ;-) ok better than this but still
2017-09-16 00:02
xd come on
2017-09-16 00:02
what you mean come on? SK isn't in the best shape either. Come on you couldn't even sweep VP 2-0 and lost on one of your best maps 16-7 ;-) and yourself lost to liquid 2-0 ;-)
2017-09-16 00:05
dude you are comparing sk to vp, really? sk worst slamp is getting out of groups 1 tournment and get top4's lol liquid >>> vp too ez
2017-09-16 00:05
But SK has still young & hungry players + an IGL who actually fits perfectly as it. VP has neo and TaZ (atleast he was good in 2k16 and begin of 2k17) and snax as igl
2017-09-16 00:07
dude to me, in vp's defence... they did so much already, to me is ok to chill after all, a lot of shit players got salary for years, why da fuck vp cant? but that doesnt mean we cant make fun of them xD so chill out LUL
2017-09-16 00:09
I didn't say that :-) you can make fun of them. i am also doing fun of them, because they are done and somehow you need to get your mood up if you are supporting VP in this days ;-). But don't forget it SK will reach this level in a certain time aswell so you can't blame me, if i am going to make fun of them ;-)
2017-09-16 00:12
ok, when sk become trash like vp feel free to make fun of me till there #thecryisfree xd

Neo should get benched and enjoy a vacation. While the four fix their broken dream if they wanna retain the oldest lineup title.

2017-09-16 00:12
exactly. the guy is having his best year since 2k14/2k15 and suddenly after Dreamhack Las Vegas, neo, taz, snax and byali letting him to 95% down..
