At the beginning of this DPC season, Team Liquid decided to form an entirely new roster. In fact, they decided to acquire the ex-Alliance Dota 2 team, which was “set-off” in favor of Adrian "Fata" Trinks’s newly formed stack.
I'd like to continue to cast here and there, this isn't a full retirement, but I wanna take some time to evaluate my life outside of casting. I really love Cap, he's always going to be my bff, but I find casting stressful, and I still struggle with anxiety in front of a crowd https://t.co/nnRj3Oq25z

It seems like apart from a new roster, Liquid will also have a new coach. From now on, William “Blitz” Lee will be the one taking this hard role. This is bad news for all Dota 2 fans out there because he is one of the best casters in the world. Not only are we not going to see him casting anytime soon, but one of the most iconic “talent” duos in Dota is destroyed as Austin “Capitalist” Walsh’s “friend-in-crime” decided to try his luck as a coach.
It is important to note that Blitz has some coaching experience before. In fact, he used to do it for Team Liquid again back when Kuro “Kuroky” Takhasomi first joined the organization. After that, he briefly moved to Digital Chaos but his time there was short-lived.
According to the tweets, Cap will be pairing up with Trent “TrentPax” MacKenzie as a casting duo. However, we will be able to see him and Blitz commentating again at ESL One Hamburg 2019. This incredible tournament starts in just a couple of weeks. Despite the fact that it’s not in the DPC, it still has some of the best teams in the world fighting for that $300K prize pool.
