Team Liquid revealed a big change in its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team. The organization has added a new head coach to the team. Jason “Moses” O’Toole replaced Eric “adreN” Hoag as head coach of Team Liquid. Team Liquid revealed the news through its official Twitter page.
Moses is one of the most famous commentators and analysts in the professional CSGO scene. He worked for the last four majors of the game where he appeared as a commentator. He previously participated in the pro scene of the game and his return marks a comeback of a former player. Moses previously played at the top levels of Counter-Strike 1.6. At first, he started competing through United5. His team finished in the top 8 in 2003. After finishing his professional playing career, he started working once again in 2015.
Liquid’s run with adreN
Adren parted ways with Team Liquid as Moses joined as head coach. Adren started as a competitor in Team Liquid which led to a positive journey. During his 16-months run with Team Liquid, Adren helped the team to rise up through ranks of CSGO in 2015 and 2016. Adren’s greatest achievement as a player in 2016 is when he helped Team Liquid place in the top four at Major Championship: Columbus 2016. After Mythic left Team Liquid as a head coach, Adren got promoted to the vacant position in 2018. By 2019, Liquid became one of the strongest teams in professional CSGO under Adren’s coaching.
Team Liquid’s previous performance
Team Liquid became one of the strongest teams in the professional CSGO scene. The organization enjoyed a winning streak against the rival team, Astralis to reach the top spots. However, Team Liquid started to crumble due to the first-round exit at StarLadder Berlin Major playoffs. Despite maintaining a solid roster and winning five straight online tournaments, Team Liquid failed to bring trophies at home.
With time, Liquid kept making changes in its roster and appointed new players to reach the top levels. However, finishing top-four in the international events became a step down for Liquid after changing the roster several times. Currently, Liquid fights for second place in the international events in North America behind Evil Geniuses.
Liquid to find new roster
Instead of sticking to the old squad and waiting for a turn-around to happen, Liquid is looking for a new team. The turn-around formula worked like a charm for the rival team Astralis in 2019. To find a winning combination, Liquid dropped its oldest member, Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella, and replaced him with Micheal “Grim” Wince. The new roster is now all set to start its journey with Team Liquid at DreamHack Summer 2020. Fans are waiting for a strong performance by Team Liquid as the new roster of the team is really strong. Team Liquid will give a tough time to its biggest competitors like Navi and Astralis.
