Matumbaman - A legacy in numbers
When it comes to Liquid Dota, no player quite defines the team like MATUMBAMAN. Matu made Liquid his home and helped Liquid to lift the aegis, as well as contend for it on two very different rosters. As a player, he is truly a legend, a standout, and a favorite in the Liquid world. In order to honor that legacy, we worked in tandem with our partners over at SAP and created a retrospective in numbers, using their top-of-the-line analytical tools.

robinsongz: No High Rolls for Old Men
In the world of streaming and esports, every pro needs something to set them apart. For Robinsongz, it’s being consistent and being old. (AKA oldge if you’re one of the believers in his chat.)
