Liquid exit StarSeries League
Team Liquid have announced that they have withdrawn from SL i-League StarSeries XIV with immediate effect.
According to a statement issued by Liquid, the decision was made by the team while participating at the CEVO Season 8 Finals, where they finished in last place following back-to-back 0-2 defeats against dignitas and Conquest.
Liquid, who had defeated Enemy 2-0 in their opening StarSeries match, plan to cut down on the number of leagues in which they are involved and could soon pull out of other tournaments, the organisation said.
Team Liquid sit out StarSeries XIV
Eric "adreN" Hoag's men currently sit at the top of the North American ESL ESEA Pro League division with 12 victories from 16 matches, while in the FACEIT League they currently sit second on a 4-1 record.
"Our team came to conclusion that we had been playing over, so we need to start declining and dropping some leagues," Liquid said in a statement to Starladder.
"We also came to the conclusion that your League (SL-I Starseries) will be one of the leagues that we will be dropping right now.
I am sorry that this happened with such short notice but we consider it is better for us, as a team.
"We were approached by some leagues that haven't been announced yet, and we had to turn them down."
Liquid will be seen in action this weekend at the iBUYPOWER CS:GO Invitational, which will give away $100,000 and a spot at IEM San Jose.
