[VOD] Major changes, Liquid's triumph in Sydney, and a Madrid preview on HLTV Confirmed

The 16th episode of HLTV Confirmed is now live, with the panel set to discuss latest changes in the scene, including the recent Major announcement, Liquid's triumph at IEM Sydney, and more.

The VOD of the 16th episode is available on YouTube and on all your favorite podcasts apps via anchor.fm/hltv:

The four-man panel of James Banks, Milan "⁠Striker⁠" Švejda, Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill, and Zvonimir "Professeur" Burazin returns in the 16th episode following a two-week break from the last episode.

In tonight's episode, there will be plenty to cover given the break, including more chaos in Cloud9, where Soham "⁠valens⁠" Chowdhury returned to his coaching duties, and Virtus.pro, who exchanged Paweł "⁠byali⁠" Bieliński for Michal "⁠OKOLICIOUZ⁠" Glowaty.

Liquid's first big-event triumph puts Astralis under threat as the No. 1 side
