    Okay potential Liquid C9 match could be pretty entertaining. I like NAF being added to Liquid, but still think getting steel was a really weird move that won't pan out. They could replace steel with Nifty and have a crazy lineup.

    c9 is getting mirage and train vs heroic, lol. nice getting your two best maps in your first b03

    and i agree, naf is going to be really good for liquid, but steel is just kinda meh for me. not sure how nitr0 at IGL will pan out long term either.

    Holy shit, Torqued beat a real team (Vega). I guess it makes sense that they could beat a team with an aggressive puggy style, but did not expect that.

    I'm so happy that BTS is doing CS tournaments now and that CS fans seem to enjoy them as much as dota fans. The summit has always been one of everyone's favorite dota tournaments of the year despite it being a smaller tournament because it's so meme-y and laid back. (And you get players casting and joking around on the couch constantly) Players seem to like it as much as fans too. That house is awesome.

    C9 and SK tomorrow in the 3rd slot, so probably in the evening in the upper bracket final. #2 and #3 teams in the world.

    Torqued and Liquid play in the preceding matches. Should be a great day of CS.

    That's fucking nuts. Can't believe liquid just did that with no practice on the new squad. End of a (C9) era. We're in the NA era now boys.

    since he has joined, he and nitro (mostly NAF though) have been hard carrying that team. NAF has to be top 3 NA right now. stewie really disappointing recently.

    Top 1 NA with Auti the only one that seems close currently. That seems absurd saying that with C9 just winning the major, but nobody else can touch his impact in every game.

    i'd agree with that. auti has been the only consistent member of cloud9 recently. rush has had almost no impact the last couple of tournaments.

    its honestly unreal, and i love it. i checked the score when it was 2-2 and was pretty positive they'd blow it. they just tilt so easily, if they aren't blowing people out its tough for them to win.

    Credit to Flusha this time though. Faze didn't blow it, Flusha just was a god.

    C9 falling from major winners to picking up JDM and FNS in a few months. I'm actually hyped to see JDM with a new squad, especially C9 where they can give him the freedom he needs to ball. FNS though, it just doesn't seem like there is any room in an IGL that can't frag.

    Don’t have a lot of faith in this lineup without stew, especially with FNS. SK going to fucking destroy now.

    Liquid -steel +taco actually might be pretty legit. No idea if Taco can get back to fragging but there is potential.

    obviously a tiny sample size, but FNS looked pretty damn good calling. not sure you can really take much away from it through

    FNS historically has been an incredible mind. I’ve watched a ton of Rank S games he was in where he would predict opponent’s strats multiple rounds in a row. Yea it’s a pug but it was for money and had it been easy others would have done it equally well. His aim/skill just sometimes gets overwhelmed in big matches.

    SK is calling in English. That will take some time to adjust to.

    Happy for C9. Just a few months ago you would have thought this team would be around for years and continue to improve and get better and better.

    losing zews is really shitty for liquid, not sure stewie gets them over the hump without his influence

    Actually I wonder if everyone is overestimating Zews. Liquid obviously knows his value. The players have said that Nitro is actually the one who does the tactical planning so, maybe they feel confident to continue without him.

    Also, Tarik must feel fucked lol.

    Edit: Definitely thinking this was forced on Liquid now more than them wanting Stewie. Kind of sucks for them, but still could be an exciting true NA super team now. Would be sweet to get SGares as coach.

    lol I just sold a Stewie gold sticker for $175, it went for just $50 in November. Have made a good amount by buying a ton of gold stickers at their lowest right after the 50% sale and just sitting on them for a couple years. Still waiting for Shroud's to blow up even more.

    Dang. Nice get. Liquid have a great chance at winning this major though Astralis is king at the moment.

    I think this is their best 5 ever, no weak link, but it's new enough for someone to still find something to punish though too. Would be happy for them to just get to finals and take a map off of Astralis. Astralis looks like they have a super easy bracket, though Liquid seems to comfortably beat navi anyway.

    Hated to see C9 go out. They could use Golden returning. Zellsis did well Allen hugs considered but he’s still too young.
