Thoorin says yes. He was the one who coined the term, so he set what it takes to make an era. Why Liquid should be in the conversation:
1. All of 2018 Astralis was the best team and everyone agrees best team of all time. Liquid was #2 all year and beat everyone except for Astralis.
2. The 3 month run by Liquid in which they beat everyone, including at 5 straight Premier events in a row has been matched by only a single other team: Astralis. No other team has EVER done as well at Premier events over a short period of time consistently, EVEN Astralis.
3. Accomplished the Intel Grand Slam of Premier events in 5 weeks where even Astralis took over a year.
4. Until this afternoon when rankings come out, they were #1 for how long? Including ahead of Astralis.
