Another Liquid Team; Liquid`Dota 2!08-12-2012
Yesterday evening, around 21:00, TeamLiquid announced it has recruited another team to participate in the ever-growing e-sports scene. Aside from Starcraft and Starcraft 2, TeamLiquid has expanded its repertoire to include DOTA 2 (Defence of the Ancients). DOTA 2 is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game like League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth. Its origins can be traced back to the game Aeon of Strife or – somewhat better known – the custom map DOTA which was originally introduced in Starcraft, but became popular in Warcraft 3.
TeamLiquid owner Liquid`Nazgul – born and raised in the Netherlands – writes about how he came across the five members that now embody team Liquid`Dota. Together with the first member; Sam “BuLba” Sosale he carefully approached Brian “FLUFF” Lee, Michael “ixmike88” Ghannam, Tyler “TC” Cook, and Steven “Korok” Ashworth. As Nazgul explains; ‘Though each of these players brings something unique to the table, they do have one thing in common; they are all hardworking and respectful individuals who have their minds set on long term dominance’.
So let us congratulate TeamLiquid for – hopefully – having created another successful team to embark on the e-sports adventure.
