flowsicK signs for Liquid

Team Liquid have announced that Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez has joined their CS:GO team on a permanent basis.

Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez recently stepped in for Liquid at Gfinity Spring Masters II, where the team finished at the bottom of their group, with two points from four matches after holding both fnatic - who would go on to win the tournament - and Na`Vi to draws.

It was a considerable improvement from the disappointing campaign at the FACEIT League Stage 1 finals, which left Liquid's management brimming with confidence about the future of the team.

flowsicK joins Liquid on a permanent basis

Liquid have now confirmed that they have tied flowsicK down for the long term. The 24-year-old was a free agent after being replaced by Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen on Nihilum Gaming's starting roster last month.

"[At Gfinity] it felt really good to show a high level of potential with this lineup with the little practice we had," Mendez told Liquid's website.

"Everything was rushed at first given our situation but we are quickly moving into a much more structured dynamic within the roster in regards to strategies and theories."

The North American team currently sit next-to-last in CEVO Professional, with one point from three matches, while in the ESL ESEA Pro League they lie in third place on a 6-3 record.

Liquid's starting lineup currently consists of:

United States Eric "adreN" Hoag
United States Jacob "FugLy" Medina
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski
United States Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez

Because ESEA's flag picking thing makes no sense. It was left over from when daps was their captain on ESEA.
2015-05-26 00:04
Because Liquid is a Canadian org.

No its not, It gives the flag of whoever creates the team on ESEA which in this case was Daps.
2015-05-26 00:20
Because fnatic is swedish? Virtus.Pro polish?
2015-05-26 03:00
Fnatic is an Australian org
2015-05-26 03:10

It took hltv a whole year to read the statement abour HR playing under CIS flag though.
2015-05-26 06:07
false: it took the team a year to become a CIS team based on their nationalities. we don't let teams pick the flag they play under, we use the flag majority of their team is from (and it was ukraine until s1mple and markeloff were cut).

2015-05-25 23:22
dunno why they pick him over some other p layers
2015-05-25 23:22
Like who? There aren't any other IGLs in NA.
2015-05-25 23:24
they got the moneyz , so could probably get someone better :) and also Adren is the igl if im not wrong
2015-05-25 23:27
You're wrong. Daps was igl when he was in Liquid, and now flowsick will take over. adreN has done some calling back when, but he's not an igl anymore.
2015-05-25 23:41
adreN is IGL and has been ever since FaceIt.
2015-05-26 00:22
Yeah no shit, since they cut daps LOL Who else is going to call?
2015-05-26 00:22
And yet youre the one saying that adreN isnt an IGL anymore. Hes still gonna be calling, Flowsick isnt an IGL
2015-05-26 00:24
Daps was not always IGL it use to adren then adren did not want to IGL anymore so Daps got to do it then that was not working so it went back to adren
2015-05-26 01:25
why would they have adreN if he wasnt IGL lol he is bad aimer and not such an clutch player, no impact at all mostly if they dont use adreN for IGL they better just cut him
2015-05-26 01:26
True that, also can anyone tell me if flowsick has any igl experience since people keep saying he is igl.
2015-05-26 03:05
I think semphis > flowsick
2015-05-26 11:28
Still IMO they should have picked jdm, or dinnertime at lead should because he is a great place and has some experience.
2015-05-26 16:57
*someone at least ; *player Damn I should learn to check the freaking autocorrecture...

2015-05-25 23:26
They didnt tie fnatic ...
2015-05-26 00:16
Ya they did. Liquid won Cache against Fnatic and Overpass against NaVi

to be honest he does solid in NA but he fails miserably in international lans. fugly on the other hand showed solid plays
2015-05-26 15:54
wtf that was his chance to go play for fnatic till hes out, maybe even replace him...
2015-05-25 23:36
Still bad team
2015-05-25 23:40

2015-05-25 23:43
they still went 3-32 over two maps against nip with that guy..
2015-05-25 23:43
yeh which proves that no single player can fix Liquid's mistakes or bad plays.. they need to find 5 players and stick with them, watch demos, and try to improve together.
2015-05-26 00:34
This is NA we don't do that well IBP did but they are gone RIP NA HOPE
2015-05-26 01:22
hmmm no mention to daps? well..
2015-05-25 23:46
shame to see daps go he was one of the better callers in NA when they were Denial

when they were denial, NAF-FLY and shazham were there to help carry. imo they should have never removed NAF, much stronger player than flowsick
