Liquid pummel FURIA to win cs_summit 8

The North American team capped off their undefeated run through the upper bracket with a 3-1 win over FURIA in the grand final.

It was a deflated-looking Liquid who entered the Regional Major Ranking tournament after over a month's break from official competition, scraping together a win against Bad News Bears and falling to Extra Salt in their first group stage matches. However, with the team transitioning calling duties from Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo back to Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip, their performance in ensuing matches steadily improved, and their shaky form faded away.

After Liquid edged out the win in an intense upper bracket final match against FURIA, where two maps reached double overtime and the decider required all thirty rounds to reach its conclusion, the stage was set for an intense best-of-five rematch in the grand final.

It was anything but that though, and it was Liquid who led from the front foot at the onset of the series and carried it through to its conclusion, securing Overpass (16-5) and Nuke (16-11) before falling on Inferno to a comeback effort from FURIA, only to immediately answer back with a crushing 16-5 win on Mirage.

Stewie2K has taken back the leadership reins on Liquid

It seemed as if Overpass could make for a competitive map to kick off the series as FURIA took an initial lead, pulling ahead 6-3, but there was little to be said for their efforts in the rest of the map as they garnered just one additional round as Liquid put on a clinic, closing their pick in dominant fashion.

That momentum carried into Nuke for Stewie2K's side, who put up a stalwart defense for a 9-0 start before FURIA clawed back into the map for five rounds. However, a pistol win and ensuing conversions had Liquid reach map point in short order, with the team closing things out not long after.

Inferno was the sole close affair of the series, and the only one to go FURIA's way, despite Liquid holding a 14-9 lead in the second half. After a back-and-forth battle in the early portions of the map, Liquid pulled well ahead following the side swap, but were unable to take the map over the line as FURIA fought back to narrowly survive elimination, edging out a win in regulation.

It was a return to normalcy for Liquid soon after that though, and they didn't lose a step in posting a strong CT side lead on Mirage before swiftly bringing the map to a close, 16-5.

If you think, that of the 8 teams in the main event 3 of them are Brazilian and 2 teams in the top 4 are Brazilian this indicates that the Brazilian teams are "taking" (theoretically the Brazilian teams should play in your region, but unfortunately the valve only made available 1 vacancy for major in SA) the vacancies that would be destined to the North American teams, therefore, as many people boasted in the chat of the twitch that the BR scenario is dead, but we are the ones who are "taking" (even because we got the vacancy winning from NA times, so it was fair) the vacancies in the NA scenario (but as I said before, this is also the fault of the valve that does not correctly distribute the vacancies to the major among the regions)
