Team Liquid has been running through the lower bracket of the Six Invitational tournament. After falling from the upper bracket due to a 0-2 loss to MIBR, Team Liquid has won its matches versus Parabellum esports and Team Empire.

The lower bracket round 4 match saw Team Liquid face off against FaZe Clan. The series saw both teams bring out their A game as it was a knockout survival match. 

Liquid won Kafe with a 7-4 score with three rounds on the attack and four on the defense. FaZe stepped up on Chalet and barely won the map in Overtime. It was a crucial map win that allowed FaZe to stay alive in the tournament. The final map was Coastline and Team Liquid looked extremely comfortable on this map. Liquid won Coastline with a 7-3 score.
