The Bo3 standoff between Liquid and TNC was limited to two cards.
On the first of them, the game went pretty well for the Europeans. This is not to say what exactly Liquid was focused on. There was a juicy damage from w33 with Miracle, there were team ultimates from Tidehunter and Chen. The case was not without excellent initiation from Tusk. The perfect balance of the selected characters led KuroKy and his teammates to victory in 33 minutes.
In the second map, the emphasis was on the greedy farm for Anti-Mage, for which Miracle- played. The bet was played and the Jordanian perfectly performed on his hero, not having died on the second map even once. Despite this, the second card lasted longer. After 45 minutes, TNC wrote “gg”. The support of the Chinese public this time did not help.
