mousesports send Liquid to DreamHack Masters Winter group lower bracket

The European team continue their hot streak with another impressive display that puts the North Americans one match away from elimination.

mousesports extended their winning streak to four matches with a convincing 2-0 victory over Liquid on Monday in DreamHack Masters Winter Europe's Group B. It was yet another clinical performance from the European side, who moved past their opponents in convincing fashion to establish themselves as one of the teams to beat in the $150,000 tournament.

With confidence running high after beating GODSENT, Heroic and Cloud9 en route to qualifying for the BLAST Premier Fall Finals, mousesports took the match by its collar as they raced to a 5-1 lead on the T side of Inferno, their map pick. Liquid then found their footing in the game and began putting some rounds together, but they were unable to take the lead as mousesports withstood sustained pressure despite Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen and Robin "⁠ropz⁠" Kool struggling to find frags throughout the half.

mousesports move on in Group B's upper bracket

The second half began with a near-flawless 5v5 post-plant from Liquid thanks to Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski, who picked up two kills and was the provider for the other three with a timely flashbang. The North American team rode that momentum to a 12-9 lead, forcing mousesports to call a tactical pause. ropz, who was still sitting on four frags, finally woke up and helped his team to turn the game around as Liquid struggled to break their opponents down and counter karrigan's great reads.

Liquid came out the brighter of the two sides on Dust2, but the game quickly ran away from them. mousesports took control of proceedings after posting their first round as they outfought and outclassed their opponents in the rest of the half — going their entire CT side without ever defusing the bomb —, with ropz boasting a 17-2 score and a stunning AWP ace.

Now playing on the CT side, Liquid looked a different team as they kept chipping away at the deficit despite having a few mishaps. But a remarkable comeback was not on the cards: mousesports kept the pressure on and immediately recovered when making mistakes to run out comfortable winners on the map.

My buddy, this is not actually a problem with russell. Now he play lurker in the background and this is twistzz’s makes it not fully enter the game. Background play when there is an aim god like Twistzz is the team's fault.

Don't count this result as either positive or negetive. Mouz is clawbacker of a team. They never post dominating results, most of their historical wins are via comebacks from high deficits. Thats just how they play. The furia/liquid game on Inferno was really one sided and one would argue that given the results furia is a better inferno team than mouz but their actual head-to-head can surprise you.

mousesports is showing some kind of potential, the core of karrigan, frozen and ropz could build a world contender lineup. Liquid has potential, they just need to work hard.

Bymas is also really good, he is much better player than he was a month ago, learning very quickly and even now he destroys everyone. Only chrisJ seems to underperform in almost every match except this one. Also I think that he reached his peak, because he is kinda old, so if they get a younger, better player instead of him, they can easily be top3 constantly.
