Official: Twistzz joins Liquid

April 14th, 2017 22:11

Team Liquid have formally confirmed the signing of Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken from Misfits.

Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken joins Liquid on a permanent basis after playing for the team on loan earlier this week, helping them to beat OpTic 2-0 and to hold SK Gaming to a 1-1 draw in the ESL Pro League.

He will step into the shoes of Jacob "Pimp" Winneche, who stepped down from Liquid's starting roster last month after expressing his wish to be transferred to a different team.


Twistzz joins Liquid on a permanent basis

The Canadian member burst onto the scene in late 2015 with SKDC. After playing for TSM as a stand-in for a brief period in March 2016, he signed for the North American organisation and quickly garnered a reputation as one of the most exciting young talents in the region.

His final event for Misfits was DreamHack Masters Las Vegas, where he averaged a 1.15 Rating despite his team being eliminated after just two matches.

"Having this opportunity is the greatest feeling," he told Liquid's website. "I am ready to take on new challenges when coming into Team Liquid.

"I have worked extremely hard these past couple months on improving myself, being much more consistent and becoming a better player/person.

"The main reason I wanted to join Team Liquid is because I see it as a big stepping stone in my career. It gives me more experience as well." 

Liquid now have:

United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski
United States Josh "jdm64" Marzano

well considering c9 are better online then they are on lan
2017-04-18 00:24
They're not better online they just face worse teams online (NA) than at LANs.

theyre beating sk online but losing to nip b4 draken on lan
2017-04-19 22:18
SK has been declining and they 1-1d them anyway and the series vs NiP was close...... so Edit: That's also only 1 example, can you give an actual stats that they play worse on LAN vs the same teams?

def a good pickup, great new talent. however, everyone on this team will need to be more consistent and step up if they want to achieve anything. All of their games is just one player having a good game and everyone lagging behind on impact.
2017-04-15 03:57
knew this was happening like 4 weeks ago when i was on boomeo and saw twistzz, nitr0, elige, and zews,playing together lul
2017-04-15 03:59
now kick nitr0, add an actual player, and if jdm doesn't improve, add someone else too and ez top1 NA
