Team Liquid is one of the most popular and successful multi-gamings in the world. The history of the club dates back to 2000 from StarCraft: Brood War. Starting off like a regular clan for playing the first StarCraft, Liquid turned into an organization that has rosters in 14 esports disciplines.

Let us introduce the story of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster.

First Appearance

Even though Team Liquid is a veteran organization in esports, they started a division in one of the most famous disciplines only in 2015. Of course, we are talking about the CS:GO roster.

In January 2015, Team Liquid signed five former players of Denial eSports. First Liquid’s roster included:

  • adreN;
  • FugLy;
  • nitr0;
  • daps;
  • NAF.

This was how Liquid played several months. In March 2015, NAF’s spot was taken by EliGE. The following months were also spent on reshuffles. The employee turnover continues until 2016. Then Team Liquid showed their first worthy result.

2016 and the Final of ESL One

In fact, 2016 was a starter for the CS:GO division of Team Liquid. Then Liquid surprisingly made it to the main stage of ESL One: Cologne 2016.

Another surprise was Liquid’s performance at the tournament itself. Liquid won second place at the event, and at the playoff the gamers beat NaVi and Fnatic. At the final match Liquid were unable to defeat SK Gaming and the team took second place.

Liquid’s performance at the tournament was remembered by lots of fans. The key reason here was the roster that represented the organization at the tournament. The team was:

  • nitr0;
  • EliGE;
  • Hiko;
  • S1mple;
  • Jdm64.

s1mple showed great gaming at that CSGO Major tournament and deserved his own graffiti on the Cache map.

However, the Ukrainian gamer hadn’t spent a lot of time in the North American team. In April, s1mple left Liquid and joined Natus Vincere in August.

s1mple’s leaving influenced the following results.

Dark Period

In the period from the end of 2016 and till the beginning of 2019, the team demonstrated bad gaming. After the second place at the Major tournament, the team felt the pressure of responsibilities before fans and themselves. However, Liquid could not live up to the expectations.

This period brought lots of unsatisfactory results at the main CSGO tournaments for the team. The team took 9-11 place at ELEAGUE Major: Atlanta in January 2017. Later Team Liquid had a series of successful performances with second places at ESL Pro League Season 5 – North America, ESG Tour Mykonos 2017, and ESL One: New York 2017.

However, the performance at ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018 in January 2018 left some room for improvement. There the team took 12-14 place.

Nevertheless, the second half of 2018 was more beneficial for Liquid. The team won second place at ESL Pro League Season 7 – Finals, Esports Championship Series Season 5 – Finals, and ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2018.

In September 2018, Liquid finally got to Top-4 at a Major tournament sharing 3-4 position at FACEIT Major: London 2018. After that, the team took second place at Intel Extreme Masters XIII – Chicago and ESL Pro League Season 8 – Finals.

2019 and Golden Era of Liquid

In 2019, Team Liquid got a renewed roster. Now it was a mix of new and familiar faces. The roster was represented by:

  • nitr0;
  • EliGE;
  • Twistzz;
  • NAF;
  • Stewie2K.

These gamers won iBUYPOWER Masters IV in January 2019. However, the following Intel Extreme Masters XIII – Katowice Major 2019 brought the team only 5-8 place.

After the mediocre result in Katowice, Liquid won second place at BLAST Pro Series: Sao Paulo 2019 and BLAST Pro Series: Miami 2019.

In April 2019, Liquid won ESL Pro League Season 9 – Americas, and a bit later Intel Extreme Masters XIV – Sydney. In May 2019, Liquid got placed on the fourth position at Esports Championship Series Season 7 – North America and won second place at cs_summit 4.

The silver medal at cs_summit 4 was a start of Liquid’s long-standing streak.

In June 2019, the team won DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019, after that GG.Bet Cologne Invitational and ESL Pro League Season 9 – Finals in the same month.

In July, the team moved on and became the winners of ESL One: Cologne 2019, BLAST Pro Series: Los Angeles 2019, and Intel Extreme Masters XIV – Chicago. Thanks to these great results, Liquid managed to win the second season of Intel Grand Slam and earn the million the gamers deserved.

However, this magnificent streak was interrupted by 5-8 place at StarLadder Berlin Major 2019.

Not a very successful result at another Major tournament threw Liquid off their stride. The roster were unable to get back to the former peaks, but went on to show worthy results.

2020 and the Pandemic

Right after esports moved online in April 2020, Liquid won ESL Pro League Season 11: North America.

In May 2020, the team took fourth place at ESL One: Road to Rio – North America, the first tournament of the RMR series for North America.

In June, Liquid took second place at DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: North America and fourth place at BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 American Finals.

In July, the team got third place at cs_summit 6 Online: North America. August 2020 was a good month for Team Liquid. The team won second place at DreamHack Open Summer 2020: North America and ESL One: Cologne 2020 Online – North America.

In September 2020, the team got placed on the fourth position at ESL Pro League Season 12: North America, and in October the team stopped at the fifth place at Intel Extreme Masters XV – New York Online: North America.
