Despite Liquid trying their best to make the comeback, Rare Atom led by Kaze was quick to close out the game on the CT side. Rate Atom won Inferno 16-11.

On Overpass, it's fair to say that Liquid got demolished. A quick match that only took Rare Atom half an hour to secure their first win of the event.
