Team Liquid failed to qualify for the VCT 2022 – Stage 1 – Masters Reykjavík. But they were granted one more shot at redeeming themselves, in the VCT 2022 – EMEA Last Chance Qualifier. Liquid is all geared up to make the best out of this opportunity. The team has decided to modify their rosters after Travis “L1NK” Mendoza left for team Acend. To fill in the spot, Dmitriy “dimasick” Matvienko was announced as the final member for the rest of the season.

Team Liquid has an impressive performance history. They have performed reasonably well in the EMEA, and have managed to secure 3rd-4th positions in the biggest Valorant event of 2021: VCT 2021 – VALORANT Champions 2021. Unlike other professional Valorant teams, their core members had mostly remained unchanged during the last year. They have consistently delivered good performance with the same roster from 2021 through the second VCT. However, emerging teams and talents necessitate a modification of gameplay style in order to hold their position in the ever-evolving competitive shooter genre of esports.

The team, despite having resisted change for so long, decide to change their player organization after their performance in VCT 2022 – EMEA – Stage 2 – Challengers – Main Event. They had initially taken in Aurimas “Dreamas” Zablockis as  L1NK’s replacement. But Dreamas’s gameplay strategy didn’t fit in well with the team’s overall strategy, which is why they signed in dimasick as the final member of the team. Dimasick has versatility with a range of agents, but he is adept with Sova and Raze, with an Average Combat Score of 221 and Average Damage of 153.27 per round in the last six months.

Another new replacement,  Emil “eMIL” Sandgren, has been brought in to replace Connor “Sliggy” Blomfield. eMIL has previous experience as a coach for the Guild X for the Valorant Game Changers.

The current roster for Team Liquid consists of:

Dom “soulcas” Sulcas

Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom

Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen

Nabil “Nivera” Benrlitom

Dmitriy “dimasick” Matvienko

Eamon “cauzed” Drea (Manager)

Emil “eMIL” Sandgren (Head Coach)

Jake “Bacon9” Lloyd (Analyst)

For starters, Team Liquid is a huge name in esports. They have won some of the biggest tournaments to date. The organization is revered by all esports fans around the world. From CS:GO to PUBG they have rosters in all the major esports games. It was founded by Victor “Nazgul” Goossens a former StraCraft player.
