The No-Scope That Killed Team Liquid's Counter-Strike Momentum

The No-Scope Sniper Play That Killed Team Liquid's MLG Counter-Strike Major Momentum

Despite the fact they were on match-point with a comfortable lead, you could feel everything going wrong for Team Liquid the moment they endured this 1v5 AWP massacre.

With the entire Liquid team rushing through the apartments on Mirage, seemingly on their way to an unexpected first-map victory in the MLG Counter-Strike major semifinal, Luminosity's Marcelo "coldzera" David stopped them dead in their tracks. Lurking at the end of the hall, below a window, he met their bull rush head-on with some of the fastest, deadliest AWP play of the entire week.

Coldzera picked-apart Team Liquid in between bunny-hops and helped Luminosity come back from the dead to deny Liquid a first-map victory that seemed all but assured. It proved a sign of things to come, as Liquid blew another massive lead on Cache.

    That's Mirage, not Inferno, friend!

    And he wasn't really bhopping either :P

    Ridiculous play though!

    1v5 implies (at least in CS:GO) that its 1 person left versus 5, this wasn't that. Also Coldzera only got 4 kills with TACO getting the last, and as D3cadent said above the map is Mirage and not Inferno. The CS:GO articles on here haven't been that good with a few articles just ripped off from the CS:GO subreddit.

      I've gone through and corrected the map, although I think you can see where the "1v5" imagery came from since he was largely facing the rush single-handed. But yeah, ever since I've been playing 1vX was always used to refer to clutches.

      Thanks for the feedback.
