Eleven weeks after the Brazilians' loss against G2 Esports at the Six Invitational 2023 grand final, w7m esports have won the first BLAST Major of the year in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Bulls defeated Team Liquid by 3-0 in a five-map series, giving the blue cavalry the team's second Six Major grand final defeat in the last six months.
The series began with w7m esports winning five of the first six rounds on Skyscraper. Eventually, Team Liquid put the tie on the scoreboard with four consecutive wins on attack. However, w7m esports stopped the blue cavalry's comeback and secured the map win on round twelve.
Bank was even closer as w7m esports pushed Team Liquid to overtime. It was the most entertaining map of the series, with five clutches in 14 rounds. Felipe "FelipoX" De Lucia's 1v2 clutch in the final round of the map put w7m esports on series point.
Finally, both teams headed to Chalet as it was do-or-die for Liquid. Although the game was very close when both teams swapped roles, the Bulls didn't give Liquid a chance and closed out the series.
João "Jv92" Vitor and Felipe "FelipoX" De Lucia were the best men in the match with SiegeGG ratings of 1,30 and 1,23, respectively.
Meanwhile, André "NESKWGA" Oliveira and Lorenzo "Lagonis" Volpi were the best players for Liquid.
It's worth noting Gabriel "volpz" Fernandes' performance, as he went 2-13 (-11) on entries. Before today's grand final, volpz was Liquid's best rated player (1.19) as he had been chosen player of the match in Liquid's games against Wolves Esports, G2 Esports, and FaZe Clan.
Luccas "Paluh" Molina was also far away from his best version, as he scored a SiegeGG rating of 0.82.
Today's result is the first 3-0 at a Rainbow Six Siege Major since PENTA's victory against Evil Geniuses at the Six Paris Major. This result comes after a season where all the Six Majors ended in 3-2 scores.
