April 22, 2018
Twistzz posted a 71/56 KD on Friday in a 2-1 series loss to Gambit in the Group D decider match at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
ANALYSIS
Twistzz series began on Overpass where his CT-side ran away with the first half securing the B-bombsite, while Gambit eventually returned to settle for a 9-6 half. Twistzz then pressed on through the second half as Gambit did as well in a comeback attempt but Twistzz then earned map point with a triple kill entry. He eventually helped secure the Overpass win with a 16-12 score, posting a 25/17 Kd and a 75.9 ADR. However, his series turned for the worst on Mirage as he struggled to find the frags to reduce the first half deficit, but the second half wasn't better with only two rounds in the 16-8 loss. To make matters worse, Twistzz also trailed Gambit on Train before coming close to forcing the overtime rounds. They ultimately fell short in the 16-14 game and were bounced from the tournament.
Falls hard on Mirage and Train in loss
April 22, 2018
NAF went 60/57 on Friday in the 2-1 series loss to Gambit in the Group D decider match at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
ANALYSIS
NAF jumped out to a great start to the series on his defensive side for a dominating first half on Overpass. With a 9-6 lead at the half, NAF went on to help secure the massive lead in the second half before Gambit could contest, eventually reach a 16-12 win. Although his time in Mirage has seen better days as he was unable to sustain an economy to close the gap, which resulted in only two rounds won in the second half for a 16-8 loss. From there, the series decider on Train saw NAF trailing once more with a shattered economy to eventually settle the half 9-6. Unfortunately, his efforts through the second half weren't enough to force overtime as he took a 16-14 ticket to the exit doors.
Comes up short on Train

TACO posted a 54/58 KD on Friday in a 2-1 series loss to Gambit in the Group D decider match at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
ANALYSIS
TACO began the series on a lighter note as his defense thrived through the first half reaching their ninth and final round, thanks to his triple kill hold on the B-bombsite push from Gambit to eventually claim the 9-6 half. He then picked up the second pistol round, thanks to his quick double into the B-bombsite which gave Liquid the upper advantage with a six-round lead before Gambit contested. In the end, it was TACO to secure the map with a triple kill entry into the A-bombsite for the series lead. The series turned to Mirage where TACO was faced with a 7-0 deficit early but then broke the streak in Round 8 with a triple entry kill into the A-bombsite for the round win. This sparked a comeback to secure the 9-6 half, but unfortunately, bottomed out in the second for a 16-8 loss. Even on the decider, TACO could not go the extra mile against Gambit, who edged the series on Train on the T-side to secure their spot in the quarterfinal.
Bombs the remaining series

Twistzz posted a 34/51 KD on Thursday in a 2-1 series loss to Astralis in the Group D winners' match at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
ANALYSIS
Twistzz began the Group D winners' match on Mirage where his defensive side barely held on to secure the 8-7 lead at the half. The second half continued with the two teams trading rounds with Twistzz eventually holding on to help secure the 16-14 win, posting a 15/17 KD and 64.6 ADR. His performance on Overpass hit rock bottom as he could only help achieve three rounds with an 8/17 KD and 57.1 ADR. However, his Cache performance wasn't any better, which resulted in the series loss in hopes of a quarterfinal spot.
Falls heavy after edging Mirage
April 22, 2018
NAF picked up an even 46/46 KD on Thursday in a 2-1 series loss to Astralis in the Group D winners' match at DreamHack Masters Marseille.

However, his progress through the series tanked despite still staying relative on the leaderboard, but with six rounds across Overpass and Cache was not enough to secure their spot in the quarterfinals.

zews to play in EPL S6 Finals
November 26, 2017
Team Liquid will play coach, zews, as their fifth player at ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals, according to a report from Dust2.us.
ANALYSIS
A couple of days prior to IEM Oakland starting its group stage action, Team Liquid brought in former Immortals in-game leader, steel. However, since bringing in the former Immortals member late into the year, steel will now be ineligible to compete in the Season 6 Finals due to the league's roster lock. Although steel will be able to compete offline for ECS Season 4 since Immortals forfeited their remaining matches of the season, allowing steel to complete the last four games for Liquid's regular season. Now, Team Liquid have no choice but to bring forward the team's coach, zews. This won't be the only time zews will have to stand-in as the Brazilian coach will also take part in the ELEAGUE Major Qualifier, which steel cannot attend after playing for Immortals in the online qualifiers for the Americas Minor. There has been no official statement made by the organization.

EliGE set to exit
August 15, 2017
Team Liquid plans to move forward with long-term member, EliGE, who is expected to join the ex-ibp roster, reports Jarek "DeKay" Lewis of Slingshot Esports.
ANALYSIS
Team Liquid is set to transfer long-term member, EliGE, as the player is set to join the ex-iBuyPower squad. However, if the transfer goes well, EliGE would be joining a team that will be limited to the amount of events attended due to the restraints on the core members still indefinitely banned in other leagues due to the match-fixing in February 2015. A direct comment has not yet been made from the organization.
