adreN confirmed for Liquid at qualifier

Eric "adreN" Hoag will be Liquid's fifth player at the MLG Columbus Main Qualifier, Spencer "Hiko" Martin has just confirmed via Twitter.

After changing the starting roster, as Kenneth "koosta" Suen has replaced Eric "adreN" Hoag in Liquid, the team have run into trouble due to one of the rules prohibiting koosta from playing with anyone but Enemy.

Initially Mohamad "mOE" Assad was supposed to stand in for the team once again after having already done so at ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 Finals.


adreN will play the Main Qualifier with Liquid 

He has reverted that decision since due to Echo Fox missing him for the next major's minor, according to his explanation on Facebook.

adreN has now been confirmed to come back to the team temporarily for the MLG Columbus Main Qualifier, as well as for the major in case Liquid qualify.

Liquid's lineup at the MLG Columbus Main Qualifier will be:

United States Spencer "Hiko" Martin
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski
Ukraine Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
United States Eric "adreN" Hoag

He said, 'I would of' at first and thus I proceeded to make that comment. He changed it to 'off' making me look foolish.

I don't see why people are acting like this is a big deal. They qualified with adreN before this, against better teams and without s1mple. Fucking reactionary mongs in these comment sections.

2016-02-24 02:16
Well, actually, may not be such a bad move considering he is the best player that will transition in smoothly. S1mple and nitro will do all the entrying anyways, all adren has to do is read plays and make calls. Hiko clutch. Looks pretty solid to me. Chemistry is there
2016-02-24 02:16

2016-02-24 04:10

very disappointing
2016-02-24 04:34
Liquid will fail, cause of adreN :( but owell...this is his last with liquid, and liquid will have koosta for the next one, and adreN can go back to his cave and be useless as usual
2016-02-24 04:37
Ur clueless, liquid will fall so hard wihout adren and u will see that. Its not about madfraggers. Its like c9, fall
2016-02-24 05:04
They may fall against EURO Teams sure ....but they will be NA BEST TEAM withOUT AdreN , AdreN is so bad always bottom fragging, doing dumb plays etc ( and yes its more than just top fragging ) , adreN just isnt very good anymore, and its time for him to move on or do something else like maybe coach or something. But in the Long run, Liquid is a better team without adreN , and even his own teamates agree with that.
2016-02-24 06:25
Lets go AdreN! We believe in you, fuck the haters. Give it one last hoorah and go out on top!
2016-02-24 04:45
+1 Really feel sorry for him though, he's a really nice guy, he doesn't deserve to get treated this way.
2016-02-24 13:35
Right? I mean I don't expect much intelligence or empathy from HLTV users because that takes too much effort. I think he can put out a good performance if he preps and puts his mind to it.. He's done it in the past. I just think he is burning out and that's why Liquid needed a change.
2016-02-24 21:33
I say he plays his best to say goodbye to Liquid?

So fucking awkwaaaard, damn. Good on adreN being a professional and just sucking it up and playing. I guess a lot of people don't remember when he was a monster back in source. Obviously his abilities didn't translate very well to GO, but that seems to be the case for a lot of players.
