he wants to play in NA and he will continue to do so, i dont see a problem here
Depends on if bot2k stays on the team
Doesnt matter he gets the paycheck
We will find out with what Liquid does after all the roster shuffling ends.
We know for sure FalleN stew will go which is kind of a step in the right direction, but then TL need to make some good moves (IGL most important), and build around NAF who can be the star guy for a tp 3 lineup.
He had better options? I don't think so. We have no idea about what kind of abomination EG is going to be.
NAF + nafany = unstoppable duo
Change is always uncertain, so it makes sense that he keep playing with elige since theyve been together for so long. I think NAF will always be consistently performing as long as the rest of the team is good. Grim, Fallen, and to an extent Stew all had issues with the team, so if the remaining 2 players can agree and get along with the new core they will be strong, no doubt. Just get good AWP, IGL, and support to help NAF and elige.
Not like he had any better options
Well, that's honestly one for the history books and would only become clear in hindsight.
But as a naffer, it makes sense to have play with the core you have been with through a good portion of his career. If he thought that the core (Elige, Naf and Nitr0) is no good, he wouldn't bother re-signing.
Unless he was willing to located permanently to Europe, assuming he had offers, this is a good move. The roster will be unknown but Liquid at least has the money to put a good team together
I think the new liquid will be better if nitro can get back into the swing of things. Also I think -elige +primary awper might be a decent move at this point if elige is as hard to work with as some people have said
