Team Liquid Partners With HUYA

June 21 2019

This is one of the most ambitious crossovers of all time.

Team Liquid is excited to announce that we’re partnering with HUYA to bring our Twitch live streams to China. This is actually the largest collaboration in esports between a Chinese content platform and a Western organization, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our strong Chinese fanbase. This partnership takes our fan-building to the next level by reaching the world’s biggest esports audience.

Select Liquid player Twitch streams will also be available on the HUYA platform using, a back-end system that allows players to restream on different platforms with ease. Our League of Legends, CS:GO, Apex Legends, and PUBG teams, as well as our Hearthstone player Fr0zen, will now have their streams available through HUYA. The technology limits delays to just six seconds and allows 1080p restreams with a simple touch of a button.

"It's taken us a year to find the right live streaming partner in China and we couldn't be more excited to work with HUYA. Fans in China will be able to watch streams and have a direct connection with their favorite pros in a way that was impossible before now. We know that this partnership is the start of something amazing and hope that Chinese fans new and old enjoy everything that's coming from Team Liquid and HUYA." - Mike Milanov, COO

For fans of DoubleLift we also have a very exciting announcement. We see how much support you give to DoubleLift and it means a lot to all of us so we’ll be live translating Big Brother’s stream! We’re hoping this will help bridge the gap between DoubleLift and his fans in China and will make it a more immersive experience for everyone. As we move forward with our partnership with HUYA you can expect other players to also have live translations in the very near future.

Expect to see us on HUYA coming soon. To keep up to date on our latest developments in China, please follow our official Weibo account.

League of Legends | Smash   The Rise of the Resilience Meta Esports is known for burnout - athletes retiring in their mid-20's because they can't keep up. But Coach Bobby and Coach Chung are looking to change all that. They want to see a new world of esports where, as the field grows, so too do the number of veterans within it. By bringing in expertise from traditional sports, from science-based coaching, and from their unique backgrounds, they hope to bring about the Resilience Meta.
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.

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.

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.
