At ECS S5 Finals, Astralis further proved they're the best team in the world. One of the most interesting games they played was vs. Team Liquid on Dust 2 in the grand finals. Liquid takes 10 on their T Side, putting the pressure on Astralis. The Danes would then go on to dominate Liquid on the T side, taking 11 rounds and only giving up 1. Given such a strong T side, we wanted to see what we could learn from the best team in the world.
