Team Liquid is making its debut in Valorant esports.
North American esports organization Team Liquid has announced its full Valorant roster today. This roster consists of all former CS:GO pros who made the switch to Valorant this year. The roster was formerly known as fish123.
First off are former teammates Adam "ec1s" Eccles and Dom "Soulcas" Sulcas, who played with London Esports and Fierce Esports during 2018 and 2019. After him is James "Kryptix" Affleck, a former rifler in CS:GO who had a great seven-year career with the game before switching to Valorant. The fourth member of the squad is Travis "L1NK" Mendoza, who also played with ec1s back in 2019. Finally is Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom, the only non-British member of the team, who had a nine-year CS:GO career.
All these players have been playing together for a little while now. As mentioned before, their roster used to be called fish123. They took part in the WePlay! Valorant Invitational and placed second overall. In addition, they snagged first place victories in some other smaller tournaments.
Co-CEO of Team Liquid Victor Goossens commented on the signings:
"With Riot Games' proven track record of supporting League of Legends, I expect Valorant to continue its exponential rise towards becoming a Tier 1 esport. I'm incredibly excited for Team Liquid enter this vibrant new scene, and to support this talented group of players. Fish123 was already one of the top teams in the world before donning the Liquid colors, and together, with our resources, we'll become unstoppable."
This new Valorant squad is set to compete in the European region. They'll most certainly be a force to be reckoned with in future tournaments.
