Team Liquid has its hands on just about every esport you can think of, and now it’s getting even bigger. The organization is finally moving into Rocket League. TL acquired three new players and is ready to roll on the pitch with a full roster.
The trio includes two former mousesports players, Jack “Speed” Packwood-Clarke and Francesco “Kuxir97” Cinquemani. The third member of the trio is former Oxygen Esports player, Emil “fruity” Moselund. This is a good-looking roster, but it isn’t championship ready just yet.
Starting off with fruity, he has been on the bench since late March where he secured 5th place in the RLCS Season 9 Europe. He had since been benched and was an inactive member for the rest of his time with Oxygen. Speed hasn’t earned a first place title since January of last year. With both The Bricks and mousesports, the highest he has earned is 3 – 4th in any S or A-Tier event. Finally we have Kuxir97, who was released from mousesports along with Speed in June. In the trio, Kuxir has the highest amount of first place finishes in his career spanning since 2016. Kuxir has the most experience in the S-Tier circuit, and we can expect him to bring his experience to help guide the squad.
The New Team Liquid Has Time to Shine
While the team isn’t championship ready, it has the potential for achievements with former champion winners on the squad. Since the first split will be taking place later this year, the squad has plenty of time to put in the work and come out into the new circuit looking stronger than ever. Team Liquid is most likely joining the scene after the announcement of RLCS X, the newest season of Rocket League. This is a complete revamp of the RLCS system boasting a $4.5 million dollar yearly prize pool. With enough hard work, TL can grab some of this for themselves.
