Join us in welcoming Aliwi “w33” Omar to Team Liquid. He will be joining us just in time for the final Major of the year, Epicenter. Afterwards we will be setting our sights at TI9 where we hope to claim our second Aegis of Champions.
"I’m happy and thankful to have been given a chance and I’m ready to prove myself once again." - Aliwi “w33” Omar
Our Dota 2 team is filled with some of the greatest players in the world for their positions and w33 will fit in terrifically with them. W33 has proven himself to be one of the most resourceful mid laners in Dota 2, going toe to toe with the greatest players who have ever played the role. He does not shy away from playing off-meta heroes when required even when the stakes are high as we have seen with his Skywrath and Jakiro.
W33 made a name for himself playing Invoker and Meepo as a pubstar but solidified his position as a world class mid laner during his time on Secret and during his TI6 run. We're going to unleash that world class mid laner once again.
W33 has continued to impress us during his time in South America where over and over again he has delivered, not only in the mid lane lane, but also with his rotations and his decision making as a player.
Any team would be lucky to have such an outstanding player join their roster and we once again welcome w33 to our family.
CS:GO From 16-1 to 6-16: Love and Heartbreak in CS:GO In Counter Strike, if a team loses a map with less than 6 round wins, it’s a beatdown. It’s such a beatdown that we normally see it in an outclass scenario—a tier 1 team against some upstart. When it happens between two tier 1 teams, it’s often not an outclass and more a perfect storm.
League of Legends Leading from the Isolated Lane In the average TL game, Alphari leads his lane opponent by 493 gold and 12.5 CS by 10 minutes. If you don’t know the numbers of League, this may not seem like much.
Street Fighter 4 FGC: This is Good Bye for Now... With a heavy heart, it’s time to announce that Team Liquid will be exiting the fighting game community. This means Team Liquid will no longer be competing in Street Fighter V or Tekken 7.
