Dota 2: Team Liquid disbands to form their own team

Team Liquid’s Dota 2 team is known all over the world as an absolute powerhouse team. Considering the achievements won and taken home were earned with hard work, skill, and teamwork, the team deserves a celebration. Liquid soared the sky when they made headlines back in 2017 at The International 7. The team skyrocketed through the tournament and won by a total landslide of 3-0 against Newbee. Leaving the whole DOTA 2 community in absolute awe, the team’s reputation constantly rose throughout the years. Up until now, fans considered Team Liquid one of the top tier professional Dota 2 teams to watch out for in tournaments. They would go on for three more years with minor roster changes.

The integrity of the team always stuck together until after TI9. On September 13, Team Liquid announced that their Dota 2 roster is disbanding. Kuroosh “KuroKy” Salehi Takhasomi clearly explains in a video with his appreciation for the organization and for everything they did. He also explains the plans for the future.

In response to the video and issue at hand, founder and CEO of Team Liquid, Victor “Nazgul” Goossens made a statement. Nazgul says he is proud of the team and acknowledges their constant support with years of loyalty. A short recap about Team Liquids Dota 2 history is included in the video.

Aliwi “W33” Omar and Maroun “GH” Merhej confessed their gratitude and appreciation for Team Liquid on Twitter.

Team Liquid are announcing that they are building a new Dota 2 roster for the DPC season 2019 – 2020. Just in time for the upcoming qualifiers. Team Liquid continues to battle all the way to the top. And with Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi, W33, GH, Ivan “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov, and KuroKy all leaving Team Liquid to start a new team, everyone is upset that the days of a beloved powerhouse team ends. But there are always two sides to a coin. Dota 2 is getting a new professional team competing in the DPC season, definitely exciting the community. Team Liquid also has a fresh and new roster for their organization.

Fans and pros alike are wishing the best for the now-former players of Team Liquid and the franchise itself. Now more than ever, everyone hopes both grow rapidly at their own pace with. The support of the Dota 2 community backs both throughout their respective journeys.
