Liquid dismantle MIBR, secure 3-1 record
The North American roster kicked off Dust2 in successful fashion, besting the home crowd favourites on their T side. A further two were accrued by the leading squad, as force buy fell from the Brazilians fell through, followed by a full eco loss. Upon securing rifles, MIBR placed themselves on the board, but it was followed by an economic reset, which once more put the home side on the back foot.
This marked the beginning of negative spiraling for Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and company, softened only by a spectacular AWP ace from Fernando "fer" Alvarenga on the B bombsite, which yielded the team their second round at 2-9. As inspiring as the play may have been, Liquid proceeded to relentlessly dominate on the T side of affairs, concluding the initial half with a monstrous 13-2 lead.
Further disappointment was in store for MIBR as a nearly fruitful T pistol round turned sour following a 1v2 clutch from Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken, which proved to be the Brazilian squad's undoing. Map point was succeeded by a consecutive round victory, securing Liquid a 16-2 victory over MIBR in Round 4.
