Cloud9 were crowned the victors of iBUYPOWER Masters 2017 this past weekend, but the stat lines showed a pretty different story as Team Liquid's Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken and Counter Logic Gaming's Ricky "Rickeh" Mulholland put on star performances.
Twistzz definitely came through in the clutch, pulling off some insane numbers for Liquid. With an opening duel success rate of 75.8 percent, you definitely didn't want to see the young Canadian during an entry. Unfortunately for Twistzz, Liquid as a whole did not perform and they collectively only mustered a 3rd-4th place finish at the event.
Rickeh was a close contender for our player highlight, posting up the highest damage per round and he was the most successful AWPer at the event, with 0.48 AWP kills per round. Despite that, CLG fared even worse the Liquid as they were eliminated 0-2 from the group stage.
