Ineffective vs Secret
September 20, 2018
MATUMBAMAN finished with an overall KDA of 7/11/12 in a 0-2 loss to Team Secret in the Kuala Lumpur Major qualifiers.
ANALYSIS
MATUMBAMAN had a terrible time on Wraith King in Game 1. He had a rough early game, and was almost completely ignored by Secret in fights. It was easy for them to bring him down twice without expending much effort, and MATUMBAMAN lacked the damage to make himself a real threat. He finished with a 1/7/7 KDA. In Game 2 MATUMBAMAN played Phantom Lancer. He did a better job keeping himself alive, but his hero was practically a non-factor in fights for most of the game. He finished with a 6/4/5 KDA.
Can't heat things up enough vs Secret
September 20, 2018
Miracle finished a 0-2 loss to Team Secret at the Kuala Lumpur Major qualifiers with an overall KDA of 23/9/5 on Lina both games.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Miracle found a lot of kills for Liquid and won his lane, but he was the only member of Liquid to have any success whatsoever. He couldn't stand up to Secret on his own, and was often forced out of fights by Secret taking out his teammates. He finished with a 10/4/3 KDA. Game 2 was very similar for Miracle. He did well in lane and found a lot of kills, but he was the only one of Liquid to get off to a good start against Secret. This time he was facing off against a Drow Ranger lineup, which left him little chance to pull out a miraculous victory. He finished with a 13/5/2 KDA.
Liquid's offlane shut down
September 20, 2018
Mind_Control finished with an overall KDA of 4/15/24 in a rough 0-2 loss to Team Secret at the Kuala Lumpur Major qualifiers.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Mind_Control played Dark Seer. He got shut down hard by Puppey's Crystal Maiden and the root from Frostbite. Mind_Control's mobility was rendered completely useless by that one spell, making him and easy kill all game for Puppey +1. Mind_Control finished with a 2/10/4 KDA. Mind_Control was much more successful in Game 2 on Nature's Prophet, but couldn't shut down the Secret onslaught. He did a much better job staying alive and contributing to kills, but Secret's Drow Ranger draft made it very difficult for him to actually square up against anyone. He finished with a 2/5/20 KDA.
Weak showing from Liquid's support
September 20, 2018
gh had a rough time in a 0-2 loss to Team Secret in the Kuala Lumpur Major qualifiers. He finished with an 8/24/22 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
gh struggled on Dark Willow in Game 1, getting heavily focused down by Secret. Wary of the damage and disables that gh could bring to the table, his hero was ruthlessly targeted in fights before he had much of a chance to do anything. He finished with a 2/11/9 KDA. In Game 2 gh played Nyx Assassin, but didn't have much more success than in Game 1. He was able to be effective against zai's Storm Spirit, but it was that effectiveness that made him such an important kill for the rest of Secret. gh finished with a 6/13/13 KDA.
Knocked down to the lower bracket by Secret
September 20, 2018
Kuroky finished with a 3/24/28 overall KDA in a 0-2 loss to Team Secret in the Kuala Lumpur Major qualifiers.
ANALYSIS
Kuro had a rough time on Phoenix in Game 1. He died extremely easily in fights, and Secret had no problem at all switching and bringing down his Supernova egg. He finished with a 1/11/5 KDA. Game 2 went even worse for Kuro, on Lion this time. He managed to contribute to a few more kills at least, but finished with two more deaths than in Game 1. He was a priority target all game for Secret thanks to his powerful disables and burst damage, but he was never given much chance to show them off. He finished with a 2/13/13 KDA.

Welcomed to the top with direct invite to The International 2017
June 19, 2017
Valve announced via their official Dota2 website on Monday the direct invitations and regional qualifier invitations for The International 2017. Team Liquid earned the fourth invitation out of the six available.
ANALYSIS
Team Liquid has long struggled to find its rhythm and groove, suffering though juxtaposing periods of dramatic highs and disastrous lows. It has been a slow buildup for Team Liquid, beginning with a disastrous finish at DAC, a decent finish at Kiev and culminating with first place finishes over TNC and a red hot Evil Geniuses at Starladder and Epicenter 2017 respectively. Team Liquid will look to keep their momentum heading into The International and hope to add a long coveted Aegis of Champions to their trophy case.
