Liquid confirm Hiko exit

After the confirmation of Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz to the roster, the North American organization has revealed the departure of Spencer "Hiko" Martin.

Liquid has announced the removal of Spencer "Hiko" Martin via social media, two days after he and Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu were added to OpTic's ESL Pro League Season 5 squad.


Hiko leaves Liquid after joining in 2015

With this, Liquid's renewed five men is defined and set to have the Canadian player Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz as their in-game leader for the current season.

On the other hand, OpTic seems to be ready to confirm their plans for this year, as Hiko and the Brazilian coach have already helped the team secure two victories against Selfless in North America's ESL Pro League Season 5 division.

Liquid's roster stands as follows:

Canada Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella
United States Josh "jdm64" Marzano
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski
Denmark Jacob "Pimp" Winneche

Not really. It looks like Hiko and peace are not signed yet by what i've seen in their twitters. Hiko said at least until DH Las vegas and peace said it's not 100% confirmed his situation. So, it's probably contract conflicts or they want to see how it goes before signing them.
2017-02-08 05:34
At the very least, Optic's Twitter welcomed them to the team, not that that is a guarantee, but I think it's almost 100%.

I think both sides benefited. OpTic is a much more coachable team than liquid, so the Peacemaker+HiKo combo can turn around the table.
