Team Liquid have finally been able to find key to success with their confident and steady play. They has started to make finals more often, which is a success in retrospect. ScreaM is playing like in the best years of CS:GO, also surprised L1NK, who seems to gradually return form. Win over Oxygen Esports was too easy, which may have relaxed team a bit. Liquid were able to pull up Haven, which had previously been a problem for them.
Fnatic's new line-up just shines. Unreal play on his characters is shown by Derke, who before joining Fnatic was able to play at American club Immortals. Win over Gambit Esports may have added to his strength by committing an incredible second map comeback. There are hardly any problematic maps for Fnatic now, but may experience difficulties on Ascent.
