CS:GO – Team Liquid Welcome 2021 With Style As FalleN Brings The Team A Dedicated AWPer

It’s fair to say that there was a bit of concern in the air as Team Liquid announced a mutual parting with Russel ‘Twistzz’ Van Dulken as the young rifler was eager to move to Europe after a lengthy tenure with Team Liquid, bringing them to prominence throughout multiple events over three years.

Then Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo was rumored to be taking the riflers place – a necessary change for Team Liquid that hasn’t had a dedicated AWPer for years. Considering that Elige, the newly promoted Grim, and Twistzz all fulfilled the same role of rifling with Stewie2K changing to IGL to phase nitr0 out of the lineup (who went over to Valorant to join Hiko and Steel), yet a dedicated AWP there was not.

Stewie2K attempted to fulfill the AWPing role with a short-lived stint that led to frustration, and NAF is a hybrid rifler/sniper at best.

So when FalleN rejoined the team of Stewie2K today for a match against NaVi with a ferociously competent Aleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev (who has just been named as the number 2 player of professional Counter-Strike for 2020 by HLTV, losing out to ZywOo), there was a vested interest if this could be the return to form that Liquid has needed.

Gabriel Toledo was legendary as an AWPer back in 2016 on SK Gaming – where FalleN and Stewie2K first played together, and there were frank concerns that FalleN wouldn’t be able to hold a torch to his past glories. Yet Liquid wasn’t looking for a team-defining player – they just needed a consistent AWPer that could hold long sight-lines and angles.

So when FalleN orchestrated a comeback on the second map of Nuke (NaVi pick) after dropping (12-14) that saw Team Liquid bringing a magnificent comeback with a T-sided win by elimination, two demolitions, and a final elimination that left Natus Vincere dumbfounded and upset as victory, and a third map, was deftly yanked from their hands.

S1mple had a fantastic series, consistently making eliminations through smoke and winning unfavorable duels, although Aleksandr Kostyliev managed to die three times from Molotovs throughout the entirety of the match.

S1mpler left the server with the most kills of the series, with 47 total, and FalleN compared with 34 kills. Yet statistics aren’t the entirety of the game; Grim had a massive showing on Inferno with a t-sided b-site 2v1 clutch, NAF held the most damage (and highest rating) at 93 ADR.

Team Liquid was able to turn around after a strong first map showing and grab a win against the third-highest rated team in the world. Having FalleN seemed to have changed the game drastically for the NA team, and they could very well be on the rise to the top once again if this isn’t a honeymoon stage for the NA team.

It may be the first time we’ve seen Gabriel Toledo smile in the past two years, at any rate.

Minecraft Snapshot 21w03a Adds Glow Squid And Glowing Lichen With Some Extra Bug Fixes

It’s a new year, and that means more Minecraft updates in the run-up to the Caves and Cliffs update in the summer. These snapshots include small added features that will arrive all in one go later this year.

This time, Minecraft snapshot 21w03a adds Glow Squid – the mob that won the community vote at the end of last year – and Glow Lichen, a new addition to the expanded caves expected with Minecraft’s next huge update.

So, the Glow Squid. These new aquatic creatures do not spawn naturally in this snapshot, but they can be spawned in creative mode using a Glow Squid egg. This will give players the first chance to have a look at them!

Glow Squids are bright under the ocean, bringing light to even the darkest, deepest depths. That means they shouldn’t be too hard to find. When they’re killed – if you can bring yourself to do it – they will drop glowing ink sacs.

These ink sacs are an interesting new item in Minecraft. You can use the glowing ink to bring colour and light to your signs. This means you will be able to read the signs, even at night time. This can also be used to light up your item frames. You can use an ink sac on a sign to remove the glow later.

This is also the first time there’s a new mob interaction in the upcoming Caves and Cliffs update. Axolotls, another new mob, will attack any Glow Squid they see on site. So be careful when you’re planning your brand new exciting aquarium build.

Next up, the Glow Lichen. This is a new dim light source found naturally spawning in caves. You can collect it using shears or use bonemeal to help spread its growth along rocks. Glow Lichen will bring light to even the darkest caves.

Minecraft Snapshot 21w03a also includes a small change to dripstone – you can craft dripstone blocks from 4 pointed dripstone – and a host of bug fixes.

This includes a few changes to the Shulker mechanics – they can’t be pushed back or pushed inside other blocks anymore – and a couple of fixes for problems with feeding/taming animals and general crash fixes.

The Minecraft Caves and Cliffs update arrives summer 2021 and will feature lots of new mechanics to bring life to Minecraft’s fairly boring cave systems. It’s been ages since anything new was introduced to this key and important area of the game, and these snapshots give players a chance to try it out first on Java Edition.
