Team Liquid made history yesterday by winning their fourth consecutive North American League of Legends Championship Series (NA LCS) title at the Summer Playoffs 2019, taking down Cloud9 3-2 in the best-of-five grand final.
Liquid took the first game in the series with 11 turrets destroyed in 29 minutes.
However, Cloud9 was able to take revenge against Team Liquid and defeated them in the second and third match, putting them just one win away from their first championship title in five years.
Game four ended up being incredibly close, with alternating gold advantages from objectives and kills from both teams. In the end, however, Liquid came out on top and was able to push through for a final decisive fifth game.
Liquid dominated game five with Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen’s Akali having a particularly good game, which included this crucial triple kill on Cloud9’s Tristan “Zeyzal” Stidam’s Alistar, Yasin “Nisqy” Dinçer’s Aatrox, and Zachary “Sneaky” Scuderi’s Xayah.
Liquid kept up the momentum and cruised to victory, finishing the series and cementing their claim as the best League team in North America.
With their win, Liquid has secured the first seed spot for North America in the 2019 World Championship, with Cloud9 taking the second seed.
