Minstrel's Final Curtain
February 23 2017
"I've decided to move to an esport with real potential, Stardew Valley..." - Minstrel
Today, Liquid'Overwatch parts ways with John "Minstrel" Fisher. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors as a humble farmer armed with nothing but a few coins and some hand-me down tools.
"Minstrel was, in my opinion, the most funny and honest guy I've met in a while, despite generally being pretty quiet, and announcing his departure today is certainly a sad event for me. I certainly always valued his ability to make everyone laugh, even after the toughest losses. I'm not sure what's next for Minstrel, but he seems to be the kind of guy that can play any game at a high level, so I'm sure he will find some more success in his future."
- John Lewis, Overwatch Manager
"I am glad that during my time on Liquid we could carry on the organization's legacy of almost winning. (I'd like to thank hastro for providing free booze at the MLG after party). For now, I've decided to move to an esport with real potential, Stardew Valley."
- John "Minstrel" Fisher
Currently, our Overwatch team is trying out potential candidates to fill Minstrel's shoes. Stay tuned for more information!

Dota 2 Matumbaman - A legacy in numbers When it comes to Liquid Dota, no player quite defines the team like MATUMBAMAN. Matu made Liquid his home and helped Liquid to lift the aegis, as well as contend for it on two very different rosters. As a player, he is truly a legend, a standout, and a favorite in the Liquid world. In order to honor that legacy, we worked in tandem with our partners over at SAP and created a retrospective in numbers, using their top-of-the-line analytical tools.
League of Legends Yeon: No Pressure for the Rookie 2023 saw a complete change in approach for Team Liquid League of Legends program. For fans, players, and leadership, it felt like a necessary one. Two straight years of falling short with super teams culminated in the team missing the World Championship for the first time since 2017.
League of Legends CoreJJ’s wake-up call to the LCS The way CoreJJ sees it, if the LCS want to rival the LCK and LPL then it needs to wake-up and put in the work. He's worked with Team Liquid to put together a roster that will out-work and out-perform the rest of the league so sharply that it will wake them up to their weaknesses. "Work-life balance is a mirage," says the world champion. And now it's time to come back to reality.
