Vitality send Liquid to lower bracket at BLAST

The French side won the clash of the "dead teams".

Both Vitality and Liquid arrived at the BLAST Premier Fall Final with roster changes hanging above their head, but it was the Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire-led squad that showed a better face over the opening series in Copenhagen, taking a 2-0 victory.

Stewie2K: "I'm going to use what I learned here so that I don't have to deal with the same stuff again in the future"

Mirage, Liquid's pick, looked competitive at times, but Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut's impressive performance put the map to bed. Dust2 on the other hand was a quick affair, tied up 16-7. Following this result, Vitality will face the winner of Astralis - NIP next, while Liquid will be playing the loser of the same match.

"We really like each other, we have no problems, it feels really good to play here," apEX said after the victory, commenting on the atmosphere in the team ahead of reported changes. "Whatever happens next we just want to have fun and take care of each other."

Vitality strolled to their first victory

A 4-0 lead for Liquid on Mirage melted away in no time as Vitality locked in a force buy win and scrapped by in the anti-eco, putting down their foot on the CT side. ZywOo coming alive meant that the half would go convincingly their way, Vitality's star dropped 22 kills in the half to go 10-5 up. The Americans went on a five-round streak on the defense, giving an illusion of a tight game, but Vitality closed it out with a dominant run of their own as all five players finished with an above-average rating.

Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon and apEX turned around a 2v4 to win the pistol and set Vitality up for a great defensive half on Dust2. Liquid found themselves down 5-1 before they broke down the B defenses with a low-buy split, catching out an otherwise well-playing duo of shox and Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier. However, no momentum was built for the North American side, seeing Vitality run away with the scoreline. It was 11-4 at the half, with the second pistol all but confirming the eventual 16-7 victory.

+1 It's not just that Liquid roster's getting changed, the depressing part is the note on which it's breaking apart. Elige, stewie taking digs at everyone, especially Grim and FalleN. Playing like they don't even care as professionals....

The worst funny of this interview : - He is talking about NA players who care too much about aim. Maybe, you should too, your aim is awful and you miss easy kills. - Grim doesn't have a good ethics. Stewie10am tweet = playing on streams until 4 am. Maybe, look at the mirror, Lebron Stewie James.

This is just sad, you can be a fan of any team, but as a fan true to cs, to see them implode like this, constant infighting everybody taking jabs at everybody is just very very unfortunate

Have you seen Stewie Interview ? It's like he said it's not his fault but others fault and Elige's ego is too big ... I think he's a good player but he's not doing that well ... I think just because Stewie won a major he thinks he's super good or something like this ... And he always blame others and not himself.

2 dead teams as HLTV say, well neither looked good tbh., Vitality won because of better individuals and that's pretty much it. I'm a little bit sad that it didn't work out for this Liquid team, I really felt like this roster had huge potential, and that with the right attitude and motivation they could comeback to being a Tier-1 team, but it seems like there was no motivation at all for some of the players. Sad. I still expected TL victory here, and again they fail, sad, but maybe changes is the best that can happen to them. GL further. GGWP!

I mean they tried to make FalleN play this sort of a supportive AWPer style but ppl started to shit on him really badly because his rating was less than 1.10 but I think that actually could've worked out.
