It feels great to be back!
Just over a year ago, we said goodbye to the last Dota team to play under the Liquid banner. Today, I can finally say that we're back and stronger than ever. We have signed the team formerly known as $5Jungz$: KuroKy, FATA-, Matumbaman, JerAx, and MinD_ContRoL. The team will make their Liquid debut today at 15:00 GMT (+00:00) in The Summit against Virtus Pro and they will attempt to qualify for the first Dota Major this weekend. Hopefully you will all tune in to support their efforts!
The team already had its first success in qualifying for the Nanyang Dota 2 Championships. To prepare for the Nanyang tournament, they have decided to bootcamp at the TeamLiquid facilities in the Netherlands. Earlier this year we opened up an apartment here next to our HQ to provide players with a dedicated bootcamping location before big tournaments. It's just one of the ways we try to provide the best organizational support for our teams.
In addition to the players we're also bringing on new staff members. Alexander Reinhardt—a long time friend of KuroKy and FATA- since their mouz days—joins us as team coach, while Mohamed Morad joins us in a managerial role to give the team logistical support. We're looking to support the team in every way possible, and hope to bring exciting games and entertaining content to our fans.
Finally, I'd like to thank all of our fans for waiting so patiently. Dota is a game that's close to my heart, and some of my best esports memories are thanks to our Dota teams. We've worked hard to sign a Dota team over the past year, and there were several opportunities this year where we were close. Unfortunately, those things don't always work out the way you want, and it was extremely disappointing each time we ended up having to keep you guys waiting longer. I'm thrilled to be working with this new Liquid team and can't wait to see what the future brings.

From the players
I am proud to announce that the roster of 5JungZ will now play under the banner of Team Liquid.
Our relatively new team—KuroKy, JerAx, Matumbaman, Mind_ContRoL and myself (FATA-)—is working hard on becoming one of the best teams in the world and it is a great feeling to be backed up by Team Liquid on this journey.
The organisation has been around for years, marking their stability and experience and I sincerely believe that they will greatly support us throughout the year.
- Adrian "FATA-" Trinks
We are glad that Team Liquid is supportive of our endeavours and wishful for a successfull cooperation. Shoutout to our fans and supporters, keep cheering so our work may be fruitful.

WoW Trill: The Bridge Between In the WoW community, the clearest divide might not be Horde and Alliance. It might be PvP and PvE. The professionals often stick to one side of the divide because of the amount it takes to reach the top level in just one mode is truly wild. But there is one player that bucks the trend - a player that's a bridge between: Trill. Learn about how Trill bridges the chasm between game modes and plays both at the highest level.
The Liquid Review July 2022 We’ve officially passed the half-way point of the year, and through the record-breaking heat and surging inflation, it can feel nice to stop for a moment, and relax with a tall refreshing glass of video games.
Community and pride: staff spotlight with Sarah A Team Liquid fan turned Liquid+ staff member, Sarah.GG is one of the many friendly faces that our fans get to interact with on a regular basis.
