Cloud9 have booked their spot in the cs_summit 2 upper bracket final after defeating Liquid 2-0 (16-4 on Cobblestone and 16-11 on Mirage).

The second match of the day kicked off on Cobblestone, Liquid's map pick, with Cloud9 securing their CT pistol on the back of a trio of kills from Tarik "tarik" Celik. A keenly-contested period then followed, as rounds went back and forth, but Cloud9 took the reins of the game and closed out the half with an impressive 12-3 lead. 

Liquid then found a lifeline thanks to a quad-kill from Keith "NAF" Markovic in the pistol round, but they were dealt a heavy blow in the next round as Cloud9 hit back immediately. The Major champions never let go, eventually locking down the map at 16-4 with a great 1v3 clutch from Timothy "autimatic" Ta.

Cloud9 will take on SK in the upper bracket final

Cloud9 started their map pick, Mirage, on the right foot, bagging a quick 5-0 lead after picking up their T-side pistol. Surprisingly enough, Liquid's first round win came on a shoddy buy in the seventh round.

After that, Nick "nitr0" Cannella's men tightened up their defense, winning five of the next six rounds to bring the deficit to three rounds by the end of the half.

With their third successful pistol round, Cloud9 set themselves up for a 11-6 lead. tarik's squad then responded well to a third-round buy from their opponents with an aggressive strategy, further increasing their lead to seven rounds.

Liquid still found a way back into the game as they won the next four rounds, but Cloud9 would not let the game slip away from them. After hitting match-point with a 1v3 clutch from Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham to hit match-point, Cloud9 quickly wrapped things up to assure themselves of a spot in the Upper Bracket final, in which they will take on SK.

I really like watching SK and C9 go at it. New kids vs the old Guard. Kind of go back and forth but with the old guard team winning usually. It's developed into a fun rivalry. I know SK and their fans will never admit that but it has.

3rd gen immigrants to a country are not natives of the country their ancestors immigrated from. Case in point, you say Auti and Stew are Asian but yet you think Twistzz is British, lulwut.

Van Dulken can be traced back to Britain and Ireland. Are you trying to say that Twistzz is Asian?????
2018-02-10 01:48
Last names are patrilineal. If 99% of my ancestors are Scottish, but my great great great great grandmother married a German, I could have the last name Muller. Doesn't make me not Scottish. Twistzz is whatever is on his passport, so probably Canadian.
