Liquid took part as the second game of the day here in London, slightly delayed due to the double overtime caused by G2's win over HellRaisers. The two teams faced off on Mirage, where Liquid overturned Winstrike's pistol round win to launch a mammoth half where they went 12-3 ahead, with Russell "Twistzz" van Dulken leading the lines with a 1.79 rated performance. They continued this form into the second half, albeit suffering a small bit of resistance from the Russian team to eventually secure the 16-7 win.

compLexity are just too good on Inferno

Now we head to the massive upset. There's not much to write here apart from "compLexity bodied Fnatic" and that pun in the headline. Fnatic opened the map up with the pistol round, but compLexity came back firing. First by securing a forcebuy win and then by pushing on to take the lead, a 12-3 lead. The second half was equally strong, as In-Game-Leader Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz was the out-and-out best performer on the server with a 1.92 rating, as his team claimed a 16-4 win over the legendary Swedish side.
