The new roster of Team Liquid lifted their first-ever trophy at ESL One Germany after an epic 3-1 victory over Natus Vincere. The new roster of the team is playing in the professional Dota 2 for quite a time. However, this is the first time when Aydin ‘iNSaNiA’ Sarkohi and his team marks a major victory in the pro circuit. This victory is not just considered a normal one as Team Liquid had to face the hardest teams to get to this point. Throughout the tournament, Team Liquid had to go through Team Secret, Vikin.gg, Team Nigma, Mudgolems, and Na’Vi to win the title.
Team Nigma and Secret became a little trouble for Team Liquid in the beginning. However, Insania had all the answers for the world-class teams after the first game of every series. The whole Team Liquid squad came out as the favorite in the matchups against the biggest teams. Throughout the tournament, Team Liquid only lost two series to get to this point. The team first lost 0-2 against Team Secret in the group stages. Similarly, Liquid had to face a 1-2 defeat in the first round of playoffs against Mudgolems.
Lower Bracket Run
Team Liquid dropped down to the lower bracket of the tournament as the team had to go through a defeat against Mudgolems. In the lower bracket run, Liquid only lost two games. Moreover, Liquid eliminated Team Nigma with a 2-1 victory and later on, swept Team Secret in a 2-0 epic series. Team Liquid also became the first team to eliminate Team Secret from a tournament after Vikin.gg did it in April from the ESL One Los Angeles.
Road to Championship
As Liquid took on Secret, their next meetup was Mudgolems. Team Liquid represented a very strong play against Mudgolems to sweep the series and reach the finals. Liquid started the grand finals with amazing energy. The team easily took the first two games of the series. However, Na’Vi bounced back in the third game of the series to take 1 as well. Despite that, Liquid gave no choices to Na’Vi in the fourth game and the astonishing plays by Samuel ‘Boxi’ Svahn, Max ‘qojqva’ Brocker, and Tommy ‘Taiga’ Le took Liquid back to the top. Liquid closed the fourth game and became the Champions at ESL One Germany 2020 Online.
Insania from Team Liquid said that the team has been playing with the fear of losing every time. However, this time, we did not think of losing and just focused on winning. This is the best thing the whole squad has done and it has made our games much easier than ever.
With this amazing victory at the ESL One Germany 2020, Insania from Liquid became the MVP of the tournament as well. Team Liquid has done what no other team could do in the past. The team took its first tournament of the year as well as eliminated Secret.
