Welcome Oski and Atow!

Welcome Oski and Atow!

We’re thrilled to welcome Tristan "Atow." Soyez and Oskar "Oski" Gozdowski into the Team Liquid family. Atow. and Oski are two of the most exciting young Rocket League prodigies in the EU scene. We saw what they could do at the Monaco Gaming Show, late last year, where they stepped in and stepped up! Filling in for Ronaky and Flakes, they pushed our roster to the Finals. At that point, we knew that this was only the beginning.

When we signed Atow. and Oski late last year, we circled the RLCS Winter EU Regional 3 as our first tournament. While we can't qualify for the Winter Major, we have to reach for as many circuit points as we can and give our players as much big stage experience as possible.

However, the dates for open and closed qualifiers for the EU Regional 3 fell just before Atow. and Oski turned 15. Given the unusual circumstance of our players missing the qualifying event by just 4-5 days, but being able to make the regional event the qualifier leads into, we spoke with Psyonix last year and presented our case. After some consideration, Psyonix allowed us to field Atow. and Oski for the open qualifiers. We’re thankful for Psyonix’s understanding and appreciate their flexibility.

To further welcome our players, we have a written interview with Oski and Atow.. You can read Oski's interview here. And you'll be able to read Atow.'s interview next week.

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. 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.
