Liquid crush BIG in Atlanta

Liquid are off to a great start in the ELEAGUE Major Boston's  New Legends Stage following a comprehensive 16-5 victory over BIG  on Inferno.

The third match of the day kicked off with BIG executing A, and Liquid responding with a four-man stack to bag their CT pistol. After quickly following that up with the subsequent anti-ecos, Liquid's double-AWP setup paid off right from the start, with the North Americans increasing their lead to 5-0 fairly easily.

That was when BIG finally picked up their first round with nothing but CZs, but Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski and co. immediately responded with yet another round to reset the Germans' economy.

Liquid did not break a sweat to beat BIG

Although BIG were still able to buy thanks to a bomb-plant, they would only get back into the game in the final stages of the half, winning three rounds in a row to reduce the deficit to 4-11 by half-time.

Wilton "zews" Prado opened up the way for his team to secure the second pistol with a quad-kill, with Liquid then picking up both anti-ecos to extend their lead to 14-4. Even though BIG still managed a successful gun round, there was little that they could do to stop Liquid from locking down the game.

Do you think you could replicate nex’s 28.5 ADR with just a molotov each round on inferno, or would it also take a HE?

16-5 is a crush?
2018-01-19 20:06
Yes. 5 is a very small amount of rounds to get. As one analyst once said, "if a team gets 6 or less rounds they never really showed up on the server"
2018-01-19 20:12
Yes, it is. They were down 11 - 1 at one point on the easier side of the map. That's pretty much a crushing defeat.

BIG as a 3-0 pick? lel

Yes, you’ve seen them performing good after last Major? Nope. They went lower and lower in HLTV rankings. I felt like QBF was a trap for a 0-3. They got my first 0-3 wrong, QBF won’t get me this time around!
