Welcome to #TLOW, Minstrel & id_

July 30 2016

If you've been watching the team lately, then you probably already saw this coming. After a few months of searching for 2 more players to round out our team, we've finally found a pair we think will stick. We're adding Andrew "id_" Trulli and John "Minstrel" Fisher to our official roster, and we're excited to have them on board. They recently qualified for Beyond the Summit Cup Playoffs with a crazy lower bracket run, and we know this is just the start. With that note, we're also want to say that Tim "dummy" Olson is going to be stepping down from our starting roster, and we're working with him on finding a new place to call home.

id_ adds some firepower care of his Quake past. He and DaHanG are well acquainted, having won QuakeCon together thrice (2009, 2010, 2012) before. Andrew knows the ins and outs of competitive shooters more than most, and he brings a wealth of experience and swagger to the team. When he's got you on his radar, better watch out for the boom.

Minstrel on the other hand made his name in the early days of Overwatch playing Lucio, and his measured support play helped EnVyUs become one of the better teams during the beta. With a background in TF2 and other arena shooters, Minstrel knows how to aid his teammates with frags in addition to heals and buffs. He now partners with DaHanG to form a formidable support duo.

You'll be seeing the squad next in the ELEAGUE qualifier today, and later in the ESL Overwatch Atlantic Showdown North American Qualifier. Cheer them on as they attempt to qualify for GamesCom and a share of the $100,000 pot.

- Robin Nymann, Director of eSports

“I’m thrilled to be joining Liquid, one of the largest and highly respected organizations in eSports. It’s been great to play with the team over the last month and I’m glad it’s now official. Having played on many successful teams with DaHanG throughout most of my Quake past, it’s awesome to be able to play with him again in Overwatch and try to continue that success. All the guys on the team have tremendous work ethic and skill, and with the support of Liquid we definitely aim to be strong contenders in the Overwatch scene.”

“I've been playing competitive FPS for close to a decade now and am glad to get the chance to try my hand in the Overwatch scene where top tier players from all different gaming backgrounds have come to test their skills.”
