Hiko: "allu not joining Liquid"

Aleksi "allu" Jalli will not join Team Liquid on a permanent basis, Spencer "Hiko" Martin has revealed.

The Finnish player, who is a currently a free agent following his departure from Ninjas in Pyjamas, tried out for Liquid last week in the North American qualifier for ELEAGUE Road to Las Vegas, in which the team were eliminated in the first round after being defeated by Dogmen.

On his stream, Spencer "Hiko" Martin revealed that Liquid were looking to bring Aleksi "allu" Jalli and his girlfriend to North America by "late January, early February at the latest", but then the Finnish player told the team that he had other plans.


allu turned down Team Liquid 

Hiko added that Liquid are still looking for a new player, with the situation of Jacob "FugLy" Medina, who has played for Cloud9 and CLG as a stand-in in the last week, remaining unclear.

"We don't know who we are going to use yet, we are looking at our options," Martin said.

"It seemed like even if we were the best team in the world, he [allu] did not want to move to North America."

2015-12-23 16:47
ye he will end up in roccat with their 3 finish players, would be better for him to play in NA and atleast still go to majors etc. but im sure his new plans is to play with sunny and them in roccat again since they are going full time now
2015-12-23 17:01
probably.. hopefully a finnish team could achieve something in GO

It's not impossible if the team can commit to play full time with a stable roster for long enough. Allu is (in my mind & opinion) very likely to join roccat at least for now esp. when they went full time. Isn't it the first time a finnish team is committing full time to cs as well? And no, they're not going to immediately get good results and hop into tier1, I'm not saying that. But at least they have a solid base to improve on now that they don't have to work elsewhere and train at the same time.
2015-12-23 18:39
+1 hoping big improvements for finnish cs in 2016

HE CANT CARRY 4BOTS ON THE TEAM
2015-12-23 16:50
He didn't want to move to NA, he's lived in Finland his whole life
2015-12-23 16:55
yeah thats the official stuff but I bet he honestly thought they were shit
2015-12-23 17:25
Thats a small reason. The biggest reason is that he didnt feel like leaving NiP for a team that is not going to do him any good besides paying good salary
2015-12-23 17:55
thats obviously a lie. if he would never consider moving to NA, there were absolutely no reason to try out in the first place. he simply overestimated what liquid can offer him.

Martin added that Liquid are still looking for a new player, suggesting that the organisation have effectively parted ways with Jacob "FugLy" Medina, who has played for Cloud9 and CLG as a stand-in in the last week. This is not true. Hiko said that fugly is still an option for the team.

I don't think you understood the thread fully. "It seemed like even if we were the best team in the world, he [allu] did not want to move to North America." He never wanted to move for the team, under any circumstances. so therefor there were no real reason to even start the trail, when he knew it would require that he moved to NA
2015-12-23 20:32
You may never know what exactly happened. I mean, you might be right, but also there is a chance that he didn't really felt like its worth it to cross half the world for that team. Thats why he tested playing with them, so he can know the atmosphere, how they play, etc.

haah nice one, now they get to play with bot adren, and they replace their 2nd best player. gg wp liquid tards.
2015-12-23 19:51
Good choice allu, you wouldn't have any future in that team anyway. I do see potential in Liquid, but can't see allu play with them. He needs something else.

I think he'd have to get in on a work visa like a lot of musical touring artists. Some cannot go to America because of criminal records

Oh how i hope that he joins back nip.... If he doesn't, I don't think I would care even if he joins Team YP. I am so sure that +allu-friberg+pronax will lead this team to easy top 3... This team is so competent and still scary at times. No team, not even fnatic undermine these. Pronax joining will give this team so much strength. Please nip, do dis
2015-12-24 07:24
allu to G2, G2 -> top 7 consistently with the potential of winning some events (1 or 2 annually) with decent prize money. Nowadays, every benign top 7 team is capable winning event where not all top 5 teams are competing, so pretty promising opportunity for allu imho...
