2020 wasn't so weird after all

You know how like, 2020 has been really weird, and all of the good teams are now bad, and all of those onliner teams like BIG and Heroic are really good now, and NA CS is dead because of their lack of ability VALORANT?

Yeah, forget all that.

The only one of those 'onliner' teams who even did well at IEM was BIG, and they got ran through by Liquid, an NA team. Well, EliGE mostly, who went absolutely ballistic - dropping 61 over two maps. The rest of the 2020 top four crew were nowhere to be found in the semi-finals.

As is tradition, s1mple fell just short of beating Astralis in the semi-finals, and he, electronic and now B1T got to experience being slightly let down by their teammates. As is also tradition, Astralis met Liquid in the Grand Final.

We don't need to tell you what happened.

Liquid got absolutely blasted by Astralis. Like, again. It's the most one-sided rivalry since Espanyol had the nerve to be based in the same city as FC Barcelona.

It's like when your older brother offers to play games with you, but he gives you that crappy off-brand controller that has a button that says 'SPEED' on it that you swear doesn't do anything. It's just not fair.

It's like when the teacher picks the teams during PE and the other team weirdly has the two guys who play for the county/state team and you have the fat guy.

And that's one joke for every map Astralis had to play before they slapped Liquid back out of the server.
