Liquid returns from vacation after The International 12 with a change on the offlane. Instead of zai, the TI11 33 champion will play on the challenging lineup. Neta is considered one of the best offlane players in the world, so Team Liquid's overall lineup has not weakened.
The team had impressive results for the entire year: five finals (without wins) and top-6 at The International 12. They looked solid in the early stages of tournaments, but in the decisive matches, Liquid always broke. They have very skilled players in every spot. M1CKE has adapted well to the first position, Nisha has played great in the past season, and many of the supports have played together for a long time. Team Liquid likes to pick characters with low cooldowns and emphasize strong positions.
How will the change affect the team's play? 33 can play the same characters as Zai. Another issue is that 33 played Tundra Esports, which was focused on farming and slowly gaining an economic advantage. Will Neta adapt to the active play style? The team's result in the match against Team Falcons depends on it.
Team Falcons is already familiar to us from their qualification for ESL One Kuala Lumpur and their participation in the Pinnacle. In one month, the team had 34 matches with a record of 28-6, an 82% win rate.
In terms of responsibilities in the team, the players are perfectly matched. Cr1t can play well with young Malr1ne in the midlane. There is a stable set of Sneyking and skiter in the easy line. ATF can use his signature characters and doesn't have to adjust to the team. The Falcons secured a win at the Pinnacle, but there are better ways to judge their strength, as the level of the opponents was lower.
Nevertheless, there were loud victories over PSG.Quest and Virtus.pro, and these were the participants of the previous The International 12. Team Falcons has every chance to break into the tier-1 scene, and the Malaysia tournament will be the first serious test for the team.
