Xm Gives Team Liquid Fans a Reason to Cheer for Azure Ray in Grand Finals

During the post-game interview when SirActionSlacks remarked how there were so many Liquid fans in the crowd, he questioned Xm why the Liquid fans should now be supporting Azure Ray. According to the translations provided by Jin "Jin" Ru, Xm confidently replied, saying, "Team Liquid has never beaten Gaimin Gladiators in a grand finals, so we are here to pick up the mantle. We will beat GG [Gaimin Gladiators] for you guys [Team Liquid fans]." This bold statement resonated with the crowd, creating a buzz of excitement as Azure Ray prepares to face off against Gaimin Gladiators in a best-of-five showdown at the ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023 Grand Finals.

Xm's words carried a promise of redemption and a chance to rewrite history. The Upper bracket dominance of Azure Ray was momentarily halted by Gaimin Gladiators when GG beat Azure Ray in the Upper Bracket finals to secure a spot at the grand finals while simultaneously knocking Azure Ray down to the Lower bracket, but now Azure Ray is determined to reverse the tide in the much-anticipated redemption match at the ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023 Grand Finals.

What adds more intrigue to this epic showdown is Xm's guarantee to play Viper against Gaimin Gladiators. In the final game against Team Liquid, Xm's Viper wreaked havoc, dealing a staggering 19.3k damage, the highest in the game. His impressive K/D/A of 10/3/6 showcased the impact of his Viper play, aiding Azure Ray in an early tower takedown and shutting down Jonáš "SabeRLight-" Volek’s Timbersaw.

Team Liquid’s captain, Aydin "iNSaNiA" Sarkohi also jokingly added “I mean the truth is we wanted Azure Ray to play them [Gaimin Gladiators]. Nobody wants to see GG vs TL in the grand finals again

As the curtains draw to a close at the ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023 the grand finals are set for Azure Ray vs Gaimin Gladiators, should Gaimin Gladiators win this, it would mark their seventh tournament win of 2023. Will Azure Ray redeem itself at the grand finals?
