Many League of Legends fans were hoping to see Team Liquid exact revenge on TSM after they lost twice to them in the regular season despite their impressive 14-4 record at the end of the regular season.
After a much hyped match-up, with Team Liquid and TSM owners, Steve Arhancet and Andy Dinh even placing a $100,000 wager on the best of five series, Team Liquid took the game five after a crazy reverse sweep comeback from being down 0-2.
Many were wondering how Team Liquid managed to pull this win off vs one of the best teams in North America and Doublelift revealed in the post match press conference that he felt no pressure during the series and claimed he was “unnaturally calm.”
He explained that although they dropped the first two games of the series, that he didn’t count them as “real losses” because they still felt as if they were playing well.
Doublelift went on to described how after the first two games had ended, he said “Ok, now the series starts, let's go 3-0” and attributed the victory to how calm his team remained despite being behind in the series. "I don't feel like the pressure of being down 2-0 got to us at all."

After that win, Team Liquid will join teams such as SK Telecom T1 at the Mid Season Invitational event in Vietnam on May 1 and will look to improve on North America's international achievements with a win at MSI 2019.
For all of the other LCS teams such as TSM, they will have a long break now until the LCS Summer Split returns on June 1 where we will see these teams go at it again to challenge Team Liquid for the top spot.
