Liquid has now "clinched" lower bracket with that. TNC can still get UB with a loss (through a tiebreak) or LB with a win (also through a tiebreak) so they need some help regardless of game 2. But a win guarantees them at least a tiebreaker set.

I think we get tiebreakers if both TNC and Alliance win (3-way tie for 3rd with the winner of Newbee/Mineski), or both lose (winner of Newbee/Mineski gets 3rd, 3-way tie for 4th with remaining teams).

maybe they misread the standings and thought they were already in for some reason?

Newbee won game 2 so they're at nine. Rooting pretty hard for liquid right now because :fork: Alliance

this game is meaningless for liquid so I'm not sure how much I'd read into it

the 15 games before this one, though

still not sure what the gently caress Alliance was thinking

Still hoping for TNC meltdown for the tiebreak funtime

E: w33 not being able to chain 2 skills together is making this difficult though
