Day 1 – Semifinals
PGL Finals • VP vs LIQUID • Snax goes big!

Virtus.Pro vs Liquid is tighter than expected, but Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski is actually giving an huge hand to VP!Here is his beautiful 4K (4th frag not available in the clip) that basically decided the match. Worth mentioning the perfect teamwork with Neo, luring Liquid from the smoke while Snax was moving around it.

    I’m really glad TSM took this against Fnatic. According to gosugamers, I believe they’re ranked #1 now? This is great. I love the change in the rankings, life is getting interesting 😉

    • If so the GG ranking is not correct. Basing a ranking system on matches instead of events is plain wrong, matches should be used only in order to determine the short-term form 😉

      However, the Top-3 battle is getting tight and all the top-ranked 4 teams (Fnatic, TSM, Envy and VP) are pretty aligned, but we need to wait for DH Cluj in order to see real changes for the Top1 crown (Fnatic are still 8 points ahead Envy, and 10 ahead TSM but the PGL outcome will likely tighten these values).
