Liquid have completed the signing of Keith "NAF" Markovic from Renegades, both organisations have announced.
The Canadian player will be stepping into the shoes of Josh "jdm64" Marzano, who had been part of the team since June 2016, when he was signed from CLG as part of a trade deal that saw Kenneth "koosta" Suen move in the opposite direction.
Keith "NAF" Markovic is no stranger to Liquid, whom he briefly represented in early 2015 before being replaced by Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski. He went on to play for teams like Luminosity and Conquest before signing for OpTic, with whom he would win ELEAGUE Season 2.
In September, he signed for Renegades for an undisclosed fee, and he produced some of his best Counter-Strike with the Australian team, averaging a 1.27 Rating on LAN. While playing under Renegades' banner, the team most notably won the StarLadder i-League Invitational #2, in Shanghai, after beating Virtus.pro in the final.
This is the second roster change for Liquid in just a few months, after replacing Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz with Lucas "steel" Lopes in November. Due to the roster rules, the former Immortals member could not play at ELEAGUE Major Boston, where the North American team were sent packing in the New Legends Stage with a 1-3 record, with coach Wilton "zews" Prado acting as a substitute.
Liquid's squad currently looks as follows:
