Liquid Takes a Step Back from Halo
December 16 2017
We are sad to announce that we are taking a step back from Halo for the time being. This decision has not come easy, as we were incredibly proud of our team and what we were able to accomplish over the past few years.
However, due to the lack of progress behind the scenes, we've decided to reassess our current involvement until we can gauge the direction of the series. Even though we are leaving the Halo scene, we are still hopeful that it will continue to grow and reach its potential. We would like to thank our fans for supporting us since our debut in Halo and hope that you continue to support our players on their new teams.
During this past year, we were able to accomplish a lot, including a bronze medal in the Halo World Championships. Liquid was always among the contenders, and we were committed to fielding a team that could win titles. While we ultimately fell just short of the mark, we were happy with our performances and results.
"As someone who started their esports career in first person shooters, Halo held a special place in my heart. Not only because of the game, but because of the players, coaches, and analysts that I had the pleasure of working with. Although Team Liquid had many ups and downs throughout our tenure in Halo, we had a great ending with some fun tournament runs and overall placements. To everyone I have worked with over the years in Halo, thank you."
- Caleb Anderson, Team Manager
"Since joining Team Liquid over a year ago, we've had multiple roster changes but we were always considered one of the best Halo 5 teams. We owe a huge thanks to TL for always providing us the tools we've needed to help us improve (especially our analyst Audley). TL has had good run in Halo and I'm honored I was able to contribute to their success."
- Kory "Symbolic" Arruda, Head Coach
"It's been an absolute pleasure working as the analyst for Team Liquid throughout their tenure in Halo 5. I've gotten to work with 14 different players all under the Team Liquid banner and although many faces came through TL, they were consistently considered one of the top teams among the league. It's been an honor to contribute to Team Liquid's success in Halo and I wish all the players I've worked with continued success as they move on in their careers."
- Tyler "TiberiusAudley" Hicks, Team Analyst
Our players have found new teams, and we would like to express our sincerest gratitude for their efforts during their time on Team Liquid. They are all talented players and we hope that they find success on their new teams. Eco and StelluR will be heading to Splyce, while Penguin and Spartan will play for Reciprocity.
We'd like to thank our fans for cheering us on and thank the Halo community for making Halo such a vibrant scene. We hope that you will all continue to support Halo so that it can be the game that it deserves to be.

Street Fighter 4 John Takeuchi: Year One John Takeuchi had an accelerated entrance into the world of esports. Unlike most of our talented players, John had never had a professional sponsor before landing a deal with Team Liquid. At only 20 when the ink dried on his contract, John’s world was about to expand in ways he never expected.
