steelega in for Stanislaw

November 13 2017

We would like to announce that we have signed Lucas "steelega" Lopes from Immortals. He will be replacing Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz as our permanent fifth player starting at IEM Oakland this week.

steel is a talented and experienced player who accomplished much during his time on Immortals. As the team's leader, steel helped his team to a silver medal at the Krakow Major among other achievements. He is a well-respected figure in Counter-Strike and a consummate professional, and he will add both firepower and leadership to our squad. We hope that this change will propel us further and give us more tools to compete against the best teams in the world.


"Steel is the most professional player I know. His positive attitude and skillset fit our needs perfectly and we are excited with what's ahead of us."

"Feliz demais em ter o leguinha no Liquid! Ele vai trazer toda raça e garra Brasileira e espero que todos continuem torcendo por nós!!"

- Wilton "zews" Prado



Tune in as steel makes his debut for Team Liquid this week at IEM Oakland from November 11 to November 19. Cheer for the team and our newest addition as we take on the rest of Group B. We'll be squaring off against RNG in our first game of the tournament, so make sure to check Liquipedia or our twitter for updates on when we play.

League of Legends   Take notes: How TLH is Learning From EG After a shocking 0-3 loss to Evil Geniuses in the Losers Finals of the 2022 Spring Playoffs, Team Liquid’s dressing room is predictably quiet. Quiet enough that, through SQUAD’s camera crew, you can hear the sound of the players’ shoes shuffling against the carpet. After a moment, Liquid head coach André "Guilhoto" Pereira Guilhoto ruptures the silence.
League of Legends   What's Going on With Squad? Six years ago, I was sent to cover the LCS World Championship semi-finals at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Within the bowels of America's foremost sports stadium — where Knicks and Rangers mingle on game days — the rosters of SK Telecom and ROX Tigers prepped for one of the biggest matches of their lives.
Apex Legends   "That’s the Real Version of our Team" Though Team Liquid finished their Apex Legends Global Series Split 2 season on an upswing, climbing to place eighth overall in the North American League, they weren't necessarily the favorites to win it all at the Split 2 Playoffs in Stockholm, Sweden. After all, they were up against 39 squads comprised of the world's very best Apex pros.
