Day 2 of the Quarterfinals have come to an end.  We started the day with the North American team, Team Liquid, facing off against the European team Hellraisers. Team Liquid started the BO3 off hot, winning the first map Mirage 16 – 10.  It was looking good for Liquid as they moved in to the second map, Dust2. With both teams evenly trading rounds, it wasn’t until late in the map that Hellraisers managed to string together a few rounds, eventually winning the second map 16-10, sending us the distance to map 3. Watch as NAF clutches a 1v3 with a USPS and still defuses the bomb with under a second left.  Despite his efforts, Liquid went on to lose this map.
