Official: Liquid sign koosta

Liquid have officially completed the signing of Kenneth "koosta" Suen, the organization has announced via Twitter.

A few days ago a report from Breitbart's Richard Lewis hinted at possible changes within Liquid, which have been all but confirmed by NME's coach Steve "Ryu" Rattaca, who revealed that Kenneth "koosta" Suen has come to an agreement with another team.

Due to the rules enforced by Valve and by extension the organizers of MLG Columbus 2016, he will not be able to play in the major's main qualifier with Liquid due to having qualified with Enemy through the Minor/Last-Chance Qualifier system.

Liquid have also announced that they will be loaning koosta out to Enemy for the upcoming qualifier, while using Echo Fox's Mohamad "mOE" Assad themselves as has been previously revealed.

Both players will be standing in for their respective teams at the major as well in case they (Enemy and Liquid) manage to qualify.

That marks the second time in as many months that Liquid have changed the roster, as at the beginning of January they changed Jacob "FugLy" Medina for the controversial player Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev.

With the change, Liquid's lineup is the following:

United States Spencer "Hiko" Martin
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski
Ukraine Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
United States Kenneth "koosta" Suen

In under half an hour koosta will play his debut officially under the Liquid banner, as the team will be playing the DreamHack Masters Malmö closed qualifier tonight.

Now Liquid > LG and C9 in NA
2016-02-21 18:39
not sure about Liquid>LG but yeah, so much better than c9
2016-02-21 18:40
It's goes LG>Liquid>C9>Clg now, Liquid will probably over take LG if the chemistry is good.
2016-02-21 18:44
CLG>C9
2016-02-21 18:55
Pugstar Stewie2k only rapes NA players so C9 > CLG

Doesn't matter who wins in a C9 vs. CLG match, what matters is what happens when they play top EU teams.
2016-02-21 21:31
I think they have a chance of beating LG as of right now. They won 11 and 13 rounds as a new team with adreN. Only having played complexity before. Synergy has gone up as seen vs Noble, s1mple is playing more comfy and Koosta is clearly a huge upgrade.
2016-02-21 19:19
LG>Liquid>C9>CLG>OpTic>a dead body>Winterfox
2016-02-21 21:01
CLG with FugLy>CLG with fns C9 with stewie<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<C9 with seangares (yes im a fanboy) but I think CLG has a chance to become much better than C9
2016-02-21 21:05
Internationally for sure. But Stewie is a NA pugstar so C9 will always win against CLG.
2016-02-21 21:14
You're all forgeting that Tempo Storm actually beat liquid c9 and clg in katowice qualifier. And they'll face C9 again in 15 minutes... We'll soon see if they can keep this up and become like 2nd/3rd best team in north america.
2016-02-22 01:45
exactly, c9 are shit were shit or shit since sean left w.e, but lg are on another level
2016-02-21 18:48
Says who? people said the exact same thing when they got s1mple...and well..you saw how that went. If they fix their shit T side...yeah.

Maybe they can pick up sg@res as the coach and side IGL or adreN as coach and side IGL. They may not be great players(in fact they suck compare to me) but they are good callers and leaders

I said this a couple of months ago, where hiko goes change arrives. Expected fugLy/adreN to get booted out first.. fugLy is a lurker, hiko is as well so there is a clash.. adren has been bad ever since he made the comeback. I suspect if this doesn't work out, elige would be next.. :D

so koosta cant play for liquid in the qualifier, but will he be able to play for the major itself?
2016-02-21 18:59
no, he wont be able to play in either its a dumb rule, but moe isnt that much of a downgrade, if they get fucked it probably wouldve happened either way

2016-02-22 04:57
I know how to solve NA problems...investing in C9 lineup...put s1mple and fREAKAZoiD together!!! That is the deal...and explosive team with a lots of TKs! NA dreams come truth!!!
2016-02-22 06:34
adreN dropped.. smart move, Now they just need to replace Hiko, and it will be a decent team...
