Two elimination matches were scheduled to take place today during the Legends Stage of the PGL Antwerp CS:GO Major. In the first of them, two of the biggest organizations in Counter Strike were destined to meet—Team Liquid and Team Vitality. And, unfortunately for North American fans, the last bastion from their continent will fly home after Vitality decisively beat Liquid with a 2-0 result.
The game was a nightmare for Liquid’s players from the start. At first, both squads loaded onto Mirage, the pick from North American side, though they didn’t look prepared at all to overcome the European team on it. Vitality grabbed the first six rounds before nitr0 and his crew broke the streak and claimed two for themselves. That was the end for Liquid in the first half, though, after Vitality hammered them in the remaining rounds, and claimed a 13-2 lead.
