Team Liquid swept mudgolem in the lower-bracket German ESL One final on Saturday to advance to the grand final.
Thanks to that 2-0 win, Liquid will face Natus Vincere in the final on Sunday. Na’Vi swept the mudgolem on Friday in the top bracket finals to earn their place in the grand finals.
Liquid, playing in red in the first game, opened with a win in 34 minutes. Playing on the gridiron in Game 2, they followed up with a win in 54 minutes.
Sweden’s Michael “m’iCKe” Nguyen installed Liquid with an average kill-death-assist ratio of 9.0-2.5-9.5. Oliver “skiter” Lepko from Slovakia tops the mudgolem with a KDA ratio of 5.5-6.0-11.0.
The $ 400,000 Dota 2 event starts with 16 teams from Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent Countries. The tournament ends Sunday, with the winner getting $ 150,000.
Both teams compete in the Swiss group stage with the best five rounds of three matches. The team needs three wins to secure a place in the eight-team playoff, while three defeats equal elimination. The team never plays the same opponent twice.
The preliminary round is the best of three, a double elimination format until the grand final, which will be the best meeting of five.
