Beneath our roster swaps and bombshell signings lies a dedication to an efficient work environment and a foundation of success. At the core of this foundation is a world class support staff with the ability to facilitate the diverse needs of our players. As a Korean native, former professional support, veteran MOBA competitor, and most recently player manager, Dodo is a complete package a perfect fit for our 2018 roster.
Dodo holds a crucial role in the coming weeks as our team familiarizes themselves with their new environment and working conditions. His fluency in Korean and experience with several members of our roster offer an edge during this process and the continued development of synergy and communication amongst our players. We’re excited for Dodo’s active role in our League of Legends support staff and look forward the experience he brings to our organization.

The Liquid Review - March 2023 If you asked a Team Liquid fan how the Cavalry did in February, you’d get drastically different answers depending on what games they follow. A CS:GO fan might give you a cautiously optimistic take that Liquid is a solidly top-ten team and a dark horse to win any tournament we go to. On the other hand, a League fan might be frustrated that we’ve failed to close out a lot of winnable games, and a little worried about our chances at making playoffs. Or you could ask a deliriously happy DotA fan, who would tell you with complete confidence that Team Liquid is the best team in the world, destined to win the Lima Major.
The Black Roots of the Fighting Game Community Despite how diverse gaming is, there's no denying that in most esports, there's a real lack of Black titles. Most titles, but not the Fighting Game Community - or FGC for short. The world of fighting games is much more diverse than most esports - and not only more Black, but more influenced by Black culture,athletes, and talent. Why is that? De'Angelo Epps asked community figures Majin Obama, Salt, and Professor High Kick to find out - and to find out the areas where the FGC still needs a little work.
