MATUMBAMAN is disappointed with Team Liquid's performance at The International 12
Lasse MATUMBAMAN Urpalainen was unhappy with Team Liquid's pick in the match against Team Spirit at The International 12. The Finn believes that you can't take Riki to mid if you're unsure of your opponent's match-up.
MATUMBAMAN in the analytics studio pointed out Team Liquid's main mistake and asked a rhetorical question:
"Weaver almost didn't disappoint me at all. Liquid didn't have the best characters against him. Ideally you should catch a hero and kill him so he can't ult. You only pick Riki if you know your matchup in the middle. Invoker used to be only a mid, but today, with improved Sun Strike, he can be a support as well. I don't want to say Liquid ruined the game for themselves, but in the end they did. It was a complete suck. What did I see!!!"
At the time of writing the news, Team Liquid is playing against Gaimin Gladiators for the lower grid semifinals. Over the course of the season, GG have almost always beaten Liquid.
