Team Liquid answers the Call of Duty
January 15 2016
After what has felt like forever, Team Liquid is proud to announce our entry into Call of Duty. We know how frenetic the CoD scene can be and really took the time to find players that would live up to the reputation and expectations fans expect from the Liquid organization. Without further ado, we are pleased to present Merk, Burns, Apathy, and StuD as players under Liquid'CoD. With Caleb Anderson, who managed Curse Black/Orange/AU, as the team's manager and TiberiusAudley as analyst, we feel this Liquid roster will be able to contend with the best in the world.
"Call of Duty is something that has always been at the heart of Team Curse. Following the game's departure from our organization and the merger with Team Liquid, we have been actively pursuing options to resurrect Call of Duty under the Liquid name. With all the up and downs in the scene, we wanted a roster that fit our image and represented our beliefs as an organization rather than just picking up any team inside or outside of the Call of Duty World League, just for the sake of having a team. Finally, after many months of searching, we believe this roster consisting of StuD, Apathy, Burns, and Merk as the captain is a team that I will love to manage but also a team that can compete at this highest level. I look forward to once again being involved with the players and fans, while also being excited to see this team play at our next tournament, UMG South Carolina."
-Caleb Anderson, Liquid'CoD Manager
"I am very grateful to be a part of Liquid and their first ever Call of Duty team. Their organization has seen much success and to play under the name is something I’ve always wanted to do. This will be a big step in my career and I’m excited for the future. I believe this team has a lot of potential and I think all of us are willing to put a lot of time into the game because of the unfortunate events we have all been through. I want to thank my fans for supporting me every step of the way and I want thank Liquid not only for the opportunity they are giving me, but for believing that we can be one of the best Call of Duty teams in the world."
- Liquid`Merk, Liquid'CoD Captain
"I'm extremely happy for this opportunity to compete with Liquid’s first Call of Duty team. It only feels natural since I was under Liquid management 2 years ago on Curse. After being on several top teams this past year, which have all been great experiences, I realized that none of them felt like home. I'm striving everyday to take this team to the top and show what Liquid is all about. I would like to thank my family members, supporters, and friends for supporting me and I promise I won't let you down."
Smash Liquid Legends: The Counterpick Unlike the two spacies (Fox and Falco), Melee’s mainstay floaties were not created equal. Puff is solidly better than Peach in a lot of respects and wins the matchup pretty handily.
CS:GO From 16-1 to 6-16: Love and Heartbreak in CS:GO In Counter Strike, if a team loses a map with less than 6 round wins, it’s a beatdown. It’s such a beatdown that we normally see it in an outclass scenario—a tier 1 team against some upstart. When it happens between two tier 1 teams, it’s often not an outclass and more a perfect storm.
