Last night Team Liquid announced the last player to complete the rebuild of the roster.
Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken returns to Team Liquid after two years at FaZe, where the 24-year-old rifler won everything worth winning including the PGL Antwerp Major, IEM Katowice 2022, IEM Cologne 2022, and the Intel Grand Slam Season 4. The success continued in CS2, where Twistzz and FaZe won the first three tournaments on the calendar.
Now the Canadian is back at Team Liquid, where he was part of another golden era in 2019, where Liquid went on an insane winning streak and claimed the Intel Grand Slam Season 2 title in just 69 days. Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken is the only player in history to have won two Grand Slams. In the announcement video the new Liquid-rifler reveals one of his ambitions on Liquid “I’m back and want number three”, he says referring to a third Grand Slam win.
Twistzz also commented on his own Twitter profile about the move to Liquid.
- There will be more info shared but I would still like to share a bit of insight on my move to Liquid. When I started receiving offers, I realized I do want something that has longevity to it, an over all younger team. The organization has created a very strong supporting staff around this team and for me there is a lot of history within the org. I truly believe in what is being created here, I could say a lot already about each piece of this squad but to keep it short, we can't wait to show what we're working on.
Keith "NAF" Markovic is the only player from the heyday of Team Liquid who is still on the roster. The two Canadians will be part of a new Team Liquid team that will be based in the Americas region with the signing of the Brazilian rifler Felipe "skullz" Medeiros. Casper "cadiaN" Møller and Mareks "YEKINDAR" Gaļinskis are the last two remaining parts of the team, that will have some time to prepare for the 2024 season with no upcoming fixtures in December.
