Liquid advance to the grandfinal at cs_summit 8
Team Liquid won the first slot in the grand final of the North American cs_summit 8 RMR event. Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's team defeated FURIA 22-18 on Nuke, 19-22 on Overpass and 16-14 on Inferno in the upper bracket playoffs final.
"Right now, Jake is calling everything, pretty much on all the maps being the IGL" Liquid's coach revealed. "He just gels better with this core than when FalleN was calling. It just felt more natural for the rest of the squad — and FalleN and Jake just in general — I think it just makes more sense for the style of the team."
FURIA dropped to the bottom net final and will face EXTREMUM, who have defeated Brazillian lineup O PLANO in the second round of the lower bracket playoffs, 16-5 on Inferno and 16-14 on Dust2.
"FURIA can never be underestimated," AZR commented on his team's win. "We just have to make sure we prepare and come into tomorrow with a good game plan."
