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.

League of Legends | CS:GO //WAVE// EliGE & Bjergsen: NA’s Greatests Perhaps no 2 players reflect each other so evenly as Bjergsen and EliGE. The two consensus GOATs of a relatively weak region, they share similar struggles, successes, and even elements of process, style, and personality. In the first of the //WAVE// column, we compare their careers, their processes, and their time in NA in a side-by-side interview.
We are a Wave of One: Team Liquid Over the years, Team Liquid has become the home of champions—winning major titles in StarCraft, Dota, League of Legends, CS:GO, Smash, Quake, R6, and more. In the process, we’ve built up. We went from a single StarCraft clan into a global organization that’s spread across some 20 esports. Our emblem has turned from a banner on a website into a shield of pride—a symbol that draws in thousands of fans from across the entirety of esports.
The Liquid Review: August 2022 August gave Team Liquid fans a VALORANT miracle run that looks awfully familiar, a rare disappointing finish in the Quake World Championship, a rough DotA 2 major, an even rougher TSL, and of course, mustaches. It’s been a pretty up and down 30 days.
