Liquid defeat TeamOne; to face FURIA in DreamHack Open Summer North America grand final

Liquid will face FURIA in the DreamHack Open Summer North America grand final after defeating TeamOne 2-0 on Dust2 (16-12) and Inferno (16-5).

Liquid continue their DreamHack Open Summer run with another clean slate, this time against TeamOne in the semi-finals, after beating Ze Pug Godz and Chaos 2-0 in the group stage. They will now face FURIA, who also won their three matches played so far, in the final on Sunday.

Liquid won the first pistol round in the series on the attacking side of Dust2, but doubles by Matheus "⁠pesadelo⁠" Panisset and Matheus "⁠prt⁠" Scuvero with Desert Eagles made it 1-1. TeamOne then won a scrappy third round, but were unable to stabilize as Liquid tied it back up 2-2 and went on to control the economy early on. Liquid made it a seven-round streak, going up 8-2 after ten rounds and securing a solid lead at the half, allowing the Brazilian squad just three more rounds before switching sides.

TeamOne didn’t let the map slip out of reach in the second half, winning the pistol round and the two following rounds to make it 8-10. Three big AWP kills by Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip on long secured the first round of the second half for Liquid after which the North American squad then charged ahead to 13-9 before TeamOne could retaliate with a successful B play. They followed up to hit double digits and start to close the gap, fighting back to 12-14, but were eventually shut down as Liquid won the first map 16-12.

Liquid are yet to lose a map in DreamHack Open Summer

TeamOne got ahead on the defending side of Inferno winning the pistol round. Despite going up 3-0 a single round loss put the Brazilians on an eco, which Liquid were able to convert on going on to tie it up the following round, 3-3. They then kept the momentum going as TeamOne struggled to contain the attacks, outmaneuvering the defenders every round to an 11-3 lead before losing the last round of the half.

Pedro "⁠Maluk3⁠" Campos and company once again won the pistol round, making it their third in the series, but ran into a wall on B the following round as Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince and Stewie2K downed two each with pistols to put another nail in TeamOne’s coffin. Liquid then went on to win the map out, 16-5, to secure a spot in the grand final against FURIA.

2020-08-14 23:54

If you are bored, you can watch a EU football championship and see the same teams winning every year. Every competitive sport is like that, friend.
2020-08-15 11:58
its not about the "who wins what", you always have "eras" in which team a or team b is dominating everything for a while. what i mainly wanted to say is that the NA scene currently only has 3 teams that are somewhat exciting to watch, and they have to play against eachother basically weekly. of course its fine if you're a fan of these teams (i just assume you're furia fan because of your flag, i like the guys as well, but seeing the same matchups on a regular basis is just getting a bit stale)

I understand you. However, this year all CS scenes are like this. NA has 3 relevant teams, EU... Maybe 5 teams and CIS only 1 team. The quarantine brought a strange case where there are more ppl playing and watching CS, and at the same time the competitive is dying.
2020-08-15 13:34
CIS rtr nr 1 wastually most exciting one cz navi sucked And id say in EU theres just a bit more variety and upset potential, ofc the big teams rm are like 5-7
2020-08-16 14:22
you realize you don't HAVE to watch them right?
