Team Liquid Enters Rainbow Six announcing
We are pleased to announce our first steps into Rainbow Six Esports with the signing of MOPA Team from Brazil. This roster, comprised of Leo “ziG” Duarte, André “neskwga” Oliveira, Lucas "yuuk" Rodrigues, José “Bullet1” Victor, and Thiago “xS3xycake” Reis, comes to us after a strong year both domestically and internationally.
In Year 2 (2017) Season 1 of the Rainbow Six Pro League, the core roster—competing under the team Black Dragons—placed first in the LATAM region before battling all the way to second place in the international Pro League finals. The following season, their success continued under BRK Esports with a 3rd/4th place finish at the same tournament, solidifying themselves as some of Latin America’s top Siege talent.
With our R6S debut and forthcoming participation in the Rainbow Six Pro League, Team Liquid is now a long-term franchise partner of Ubisoft and Rainbow Six Esports. In 2018, our sights are set on dominance of the Latin America region and beyond.
A Breakout Title r6:Siege
2017 was a breakout year for Rainbow Six: Siege in both its competitive scene and overall player base. In its two year lifespan, Ubisoft has proven their dedication to R6S with constant updates, content patches, tweaks, and support for the competitive scene. This led to a recent accomplishment of 25 million total players and we’re confident the future of the title is just as bright.
Hey guys, I'm Leo Duarte also known as ziGueira, professionally known as ziG for some time. Today I'm here to announce something that many of you already know, but for those who don't, MOPA Team is now Team Liquid!
Yup, that's it, we are very happy and excited, no adjective in the world can describe the amount of gratitude and excitement we have. We are so happy, firstly that R6 competitive scene is growing a lot, and secondly that a lot of great teams are joining the scene, everything's going to be awesome. I hope this dream last forever. Team Liquid came to us and MOPA Team roster is now part of Liquid. We are very excited, and we are going to make the scene even more professional and competitive, and always be hungry and fighting to bring victories to you guys!
That's it, I would like to thank my teammates SexyCake , Bullet, yuuK, Nesk, Sensi our coach, and Rafa our manager. Without them we couldn't even get this done, before MOPA Team and now Team Liquid. Thank you guys very much, we had a lot of people guessing but now we are officially announced. #GoTeamLiquid and I'm sure this year is going to be full of victories. "Mira está muito cavala" ("aim is very horse", means that our aim is on point, sharp).
