Team Liquid scored an impressive victory in the finals of DreamHack Dallas CS:GO 2019, but their hard earned hardware was nowhere to be found.

The DreamHack Dallas SC:GO grand finals on June 2 saw ENCE take Liquid to a tense Map 3, but the eventual champions were able to hold them off in the end.

After a great final match Team Liquid players probably expected to get a trophy, but there was a problem – it was nowhere to be found.

What happened to the trophy?

Team Liquid should have gotten a trophy to go along with their rings after winning DreamHack Dallas, if it hadn’t been lost in transit by the United Parcel Service (UPS).

While the players received their rings and commemorative plaques, the DreamHack casters confirmed that the trophy did exist, but had been lost on the way to the event.

“Probably a good time for me to mention that the actual trophy was in fact lost by the United Parcel Service, that would be UPS,” one of the casters said. “Shoutout to them.”

DreamHack promised to ship the trophy to Team Liquid “as soon as it was found,” whenever that ends up being.

The event seemed to be taking the loss of the one of the most important pieces of hardware for the entire tournament in stride, even asking ESL if they could get hooked up with DHL (another delivery company) in the future.

Team Liquid win Dreamhack Dallas 2019

Team Liquid took the first map of the DreamHack Dallas grand finals, but ENCE would come back and win the second map to send it all to the third and final map.

After coming hot out of the gate, Team Liquid somehow allowed ENCE to come back on Map 3 after being down 9-1 to start things off early.

But it wasn’t meant to be, and Liquid would pull ahead in the final few rounds to walk away as DreamHack Dallas 2019 champs.

Team Liquid right to ditch Twistzz | Richard Lewis reacts at BLAST Global Finals

2021 is showcasing incredible skill and talent within the Counter-Strike community for the BLAST Global Finals, and one team is swooping in with incredible moxie.

Richard Lewis​ reacts to Team Liquid’s crushing of NAVI on day 2 of BLAST Premier Global Finals, and says it’s all down to one man – Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo. The Brazilian sensation starred for Liquid as they knocked s1mple and co. down into the Lower Bracket.

Richard doubles down on his call to cut Russel ‘Twistzz’ Van Dulken from the starting lineup, and makes an early prediction for the team after they’ve found a new lease of life.

Coming right off of the bat with a 2-0 victory, Team Liquid is continuing to prove they’ve got much more to show than what we saw with their performance in 2020. Previously losing to NAVI at the Intel Extreme Masters Final, beating top-tier opposition was something that they struggled to grasp. Sinking low into the world rankings, getting deep runs was nigh on impossible for the team.

When discussing why this happened, Lewis notes that he’s previously indicated that Twistzz was dragging the team down, without a proper AWPer and in-game leader. He even suggested previously that FalleN would be a perfect match for the team, and seeing this pay off in real-time is great news.

Of course, the Team wasn’t pitch-perfect, with Jake ‘Stewie2k’ Yip still bottom in fragging, but a win of 2-0 is still an incredible landslide, showing fantastic tenacity against NAVI.
