Facts about Team Liquid
In 2013, the North American organizations formed its first roster, placing highly in events such as the Raidcall D2L, The Defense, The Premier League, and the American Dota League, even securing an invite to The International 2013. The team formation consisted of players Fluff, BuLba, ixmike, and TC. After a rocky start at the TI3, they managed to finish the tournament as a respectful 7-8th place.
With no luck at qualifying for the TI4, the team was in need of roster change. With DeMoN replacing ixmike, and qojqva stepping into Fluff’s shoes, the team was showing early success at the HyperX D2L Western Challenge against the teams we Try and Relax. Eventually losing to team NAR in the semifinals, Team Liquid dismantled, being left without a roster.
On October 9th, 2015, Team Liquid announced their re-entry into the Dota 2 pro-scene with their new contract with 5Jungz. Their first test was in the European Qualifier for The Frankfurt Major 2015, and coming as an inexperienced team, they failed to qualify by losing 1:2 to The Alliance in the Lower Bracket. But knowing they’ve only started, Team Liquid wouldn’t let that discourage them.
Just after two months after their formation, Team Liquid decisively won the Champions League Season6 with a 9:3 record. Afterwards, they showed stellar performance at their first LAN victory at The Defense Season 5 by defeating the Frankfurt Major Champions OG in the Bo5 grand finals. It was obvious to see that Team Liquid was just warming up.
By securing second places at The Shanghai Major 2016 and ESL One Manila, and winning their first primer at the EPICENTER in Moscow, Team Liquid was headed to hoist the Aegis of Champions.

From what we remember Team Liquid the most, was their pure endurance at TI7, by starting out strong, then climbing back up through the Lower Bracket series. In the group stages, they were seeded with favorites of the tournament Evil Geniuses, LGD Gaming, and Team Secret. One by one, Team Liquid demolished their group stages, leaving with an impeccable score of 13:3.
Coming out with more than 12-victories, Team Liquid was allowed to pick their opponent in the Upper Bracket of the Main Event from the 3rd/4th placed teams from Group B: Virtus.pro or Invictus Gaming.
But unexpectedly, the tables have turned on Team Liquid where they would fall into Lower Bracket after losing to iG. In the first match, they’ve found themselves against Team Secret, to whom they lost the group series. Losing the first game, they were one game away from ‘goodbye TI‘. But with KuroKy drafting strategies, Team Liquid wriggled out of Team Secret’s elimination-hands. With what strength was left in them, Team Liquid started clawing their way back to the Grind Finals.
Eventually defeating Team Empire with a swift 2:0, and the favorites of the LB Virtus.pro and LGD Gaming, Team Liquid reached the LB final, where LGD.Forever Young awaited. Team Liquid was yet again one game away from ‘goodbye TI‘, after losing the first game. However, they repeated the scenario and were off to face Newbee in the Grand Finals.
By winning the Grand Finals in a 3:0-dominant-fashion, Team Liquid hoisted the Aegis of Champions and won over $10,000,000 USD. With becoming the world’s best, we conclude our Team Liquid Player Profile.
