GuardiaN completed Mirage with an even 19/19 KD on Friday in a 16-12 win over Team Liquid at the ECS Season 4 Finals.
ANALYSIS
GuardiaN started the series on Mirage rather on the slow side as he did contribute to the short comeback to even the score early. His trade-kills helped the team get the entry-kills to get a few bomb plants down but Liquid controlled the map and the score 8-7 at the half. In the second half, GuardiaN did break out with the AWP to snipe down the Danes from taking the early mid-control. Although a few rounds did go south as he missed a few opening shot that cost him his position, however, with money in the bank he managed to come back with force. Shutting down the offense to win 10 out of 13 rounds contributed by GuardiaN on the AWP granted FaZe the second half dominance to take the win.
