FURIA eliminate Liquid from BLAST Premier Spring Finals

Liquid are out of BLAST Premier Spring Americas Finals after a 2-1 defeat to FURIA, who will face the loser of MIBR - Evil Geniuses next.

Two derbies took place in the upper-bracket semi-finals of BLAST Premier Spring Americas Finals, with Evil Geniuses taking down Liquid in the North American one and MIBR upsetting FURIA in Brazilian one - that sparked controversy on social media.

Fighting for their tournament lives, Liquid and FURIA faced off today, with Eric "⁠adreN⁠" Hoag's team's gamble to play the decider on Mirage, where FURIA have a 100% winrate in the last three months, not paying off for the North Americans. The final score was 2-1, with Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles standing out for his side.

FURIA stepped up to a 3-0 lead on Vertigo after cleaning up the pistol and the two followups, before two multikill rounds from Keith "⁠NAF⁠" Markovic helped his team get on the board. FURIA then extended to 5-2, but Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip activated to turn around the half, powering Liquid to an 8-7 advantage before the switch.

That lead was extended as the North American side claimed pistol (10-7), but things then turned sour for Nick "⁠nitr0⁠" Cannella and co. FURIA got on the board and then forced their opponents to eco with a crucial gamble stack on A in a 4v5, while Yuri "⁠yuurih⁠" Santos continued his strong T-side form on the defense as they pulled ahead. Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan's quad AWP kill on the A ramp continued the streak and saw FURIA close out the map with an impressive nine-round streak, 16-10.

HEN1 was a consistent force for FURIA

Kaike "⁠KSCERATO⁠" Cerato and HEN1 combined in the second-round force buy to earn FURIA a 3-1 lead on the CT side of Nuke, but Liquid didn't let things get out of control, replying with a four-round streak of their own, surviving some frantic situations. arT stepped up with the AWP to keep his side in the half, but NAF led his team to a 9-6 advantage with three opening kills and a clutch for the half.

Liquid pushed further ahead after claiming a second-round force buy of their own in the second half, and with exquisite play from Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski, left the Brazilians in the dust to reach 14-8. With some successful A site hits, FURIA edged to 10 rounds before Liquid closed out the map with a lobby crunch, 16-10.

On Mirage, FURIA showed strong form early into the Terrorist side, leading 7-1 before Liquid managed to shut down their B play to find their second. Following a technical delay, which was caused by a DDOS according to FURIA's CEO, the Brazilians went back to winning ways, closing the half 11-4 off of an inspired HEN1 (15K-3D). Liquid managed to get four of the first five rounds on the offense despite losing to a force-buy, but the comeback was stopped shortly as the North American team's site hits were locked out, ending the map 16-8 in FURIA's favor and eliminating Liquid from the event in fourth place.

It wasn't just the picks, Liquid only managed to win when it was Nuke, Overpass and Vertigo, some games at Mirage were tightened like the 22-20 at DH Masters.

Stewie is calling i believe
2020-06-19 13:33
Stewie ruined liquid. First he took over as igl and made them tier 2 and now he puts nitr0 in the worst spots possible to always have a scapegoat for sucking himself. Both need to go if they want to be a tier 1 team

stewie is igling now? what the hell is nitro still doing in that roster then? The only reason he was on liquid was because he was an IGL. Other than that he has nothing to offer, they should just pick up some young kid from FPL or some solid anchor support player.
