Team Liquid Welcomes 2 New Heroes

November 24 2015
In esports, individual skill attributes to a lot of success but on a team of 5 players, attitude and personality play a much bigger factor. That's where Christoph "Cris" Gowitzke and Raoul "GerdamHerd" Saurbier come in. After their 1st place win at the Fragbite Masters, we knew these two had something special--they clicked with the team, and things just worked. Now, Liquid Heroes is complete once again.

Statement from the captain

After one month of trying out people and trying to figure out what would be the best for our team, I'm very glad to finally be able to start working with Cris and GerdamHerd under the Team Liquid flag. After playing together for a few days I realized we have the right communication, the same work ethic and the same ambition, and so I think they are the perfect additions to the team.

While the previous team was feared by everyone and we were on the top for a long while, things did not always work. I think at the very end it was unavoidable to make changes, but I wish my old teammates good luck and hope to see them at the top with other teams as well. For the new team, I hope that we'll be able to make Team Liquid the best team in Europe, and why not, the best team in the world. I honestly think we have the right tools and the right attitude, and we are all going to work really hard to make it true.

-Juan "Vortix" Moreno Durán

Statement from the players

I was really excited when Team Liquid approached me, since this is a really big opportunity for me. Our first practice games went really well and everyone sounded really motivated and excited for the future. I'm really glad to be a part of this new lineup for Team Liquid.

-Christoph "Cris" Gowitzke

Given the fact that Team Liquid dominated the European scene for nearly an entire year, I was excited when Luci and VortiX first told me about their plans to rebuild the team. In our first games I was happy to see everyone working as hard as possible and maintaining the right mindset even under high pressure. If we continue like that the best is yet to come.

-Raoul "GerdamHerd" Saurbier
