Liquid are the clear #1 team in the world right now, they have won everything in the past 10 months, including the $1,000,000 IEM grand slam title which came from claiming 4 of 5 major IEM events within the space of 144 days. The team has won everything except the ultimate title of them all, a Major victory which they are surely lusting after, but the matchup with cr4zy could be a recipe for a round 1 diaster for the #1 squad.
Cr4zy has been picking up a lot of steam over the last 6 months but this will be their first true showing at a major event. With a best of 1 on the first day of the tournament, it can always make for some interesting upsets. Cr4zy has the right ingredients to maybe pull off just enough to achieve an upset here.
The grudge match. Since the removal of karringan as a caller and player, the faZe team roster has been unable to recreate its earlier success in 2018. To make matters worse they haven’t beaten mousesports since it’s creation, especially with the newly formed lineup with the karringan addition.
For the matchup with FaZe clan, Karrigan has gone to twitter to post his pre match taunt only used when facing his former squad. Can FaZe break the current trend or will the former captain of FaZe get yet another victory over them?
