IEM San Jose 2015

Team Liquid crushed an Incomplete Virtus Pro 2-0 to advance to the semi-finals at IEM San Jose. Liquid beat VP 16-2 on Overpass(Liquid’s pick) and on Mirage(VP’s pick).

Overpass opened with an ace by FugLy that stopped VP’s push through bathrooms. While Virtus Pro is playing with a stand-in, CSGOLounge’s Michu in for snax, they and their fans should expect more out of them at a LAN event. Their first win came during their first rifle round on the back of a byali 3k. Rounds six and seven saw Team Liquid keeping at all of their members alive, give or take 1. Round eight saw VP’s second and last win of the map off of a strong A long execute and out duel of Elige. Personal highlight was the following round in which Hiko was left in a 1v2 against PashaBiceps and Byali. Hiko hit a fading away shot on sniper window on B site before turning around and out-shooting byali, who was on site. Hike smiled and nodded his head steadily as he nabbed a seventh round for his team. Nobody on Team Liquid had more than nine deaths while only one person on VP, byali, had a kill count in the double digits. Semmler took up for VP’s stand in Michu, but michu delivered the least kills, by 1, and the lowest player rating of .28. The lowest player rating on TL was 1.26.

Mirage was considerably more competitive, though 16-4 would mean VP technically did 100% better than they did, despite it closing out at 16-9. Liquid won the pistol round on an A retake after VP trades one for one on the bombsite. Liquid go up 5-0 before VP took their first round on an A take. VP picked up the next four but not without contention. Their losing streak ends on a double fake A in which they never planted the bomb once they made it on site. Liquid went on to win the half 9-6, losing the last round of the half. Pasha and Byali held B site during pistol round, grabbing three and two kills respectively. Liquid would go on to win a force up next round and with it, more or less, the game. Elige led his team in frags with 27 while pasha led his with 21. VP saw an overall better performance, but Hiko was right when, after the win, he said, “No snax, no win.”

When he was asked if Team Liquid could win, a smile broke over Hiko’s face and he calmly said, “Yes.”

Team Liquid moves on to face Natus Vincere in the semi-finals as the last American team.

Helldivers 2 has seen a rapid rise in popularity, presenting both opportunities and challenges for Arrowhead Game Studio. Although one could argue that the studio has produced a modern masterpiece, Helldivers 2 is still prone to persistent connection issues. Players who have shown great patience with the ongoing server issues in the game are now starting to clash, focusing on personal gain instead of uniting for the success of Super Earth.

IGN reported that players are pleading with Arrowhead to include an AFK auto-kick feature on the Helldivers subreddit. This request comes after some players confessed to remaining logged in to continue playing and bypass the unpredictable server connection process. This issue requires an urgent resolution.

@Arrowhead GS: You’re gonna need an AFK timer.

The leader of Arrowhead, Johan Pilestedt, was informed about the problem and assured that the developers were investigating the situation. “I have already communicated this to the team,” Pilestedt confirmed. Regarding Helldivers updates, Xbox players are now petitioning Arrowhead to release the game on their platform after comments from Xbox boss Phil Spencer about the game’s exclusivity.

Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series has garnered significant acclaim from players, with Cal Kestis’ gripping journey of survival serving as a focal point. Actor Cameron Monaghan, renowned for his portrayal of Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Survivor, has expressed his openness to bringing the character to life in a live-action adaptation. However, Monaghan emphasizes that certain conditions must be met for him to consider reprising the role.

During a panel at FanExpo Vancouver 2024, Monaghan, known for his roles in Shameless and Gotham, provided insight into his perspective. While many actors would eagerly seize any opportunity to join the Star Wars universe, Monaghan’s willingness to portray Kestis in live-action hinges on the narrative significance and continuation of the character’s story. Merely appearing as a superficial presence would not align with his vision; there must be substantial meaning and relevance for Kestis within the context of the story.

As anticipation builds for a potential third installment in the Star Wars Jedi series, Respawn Entertainment’s reported development of a first-person Mandalorian game raises intriguing possibilities. Could Kestis find himself embarking on new adventures within this immersive gaming experience?

Fans are speculating and curious about the possibility of a live-action Star Wars movie starring Dominic Monaghan. Would such a project capture your interest? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
