Liquid confirmed to attend ESL One Cologne
Liquid have been confirmed by the organizers as the eighth invited team to ESL One Cologne.
At last year's edition of the tournament, the core of the North American squad placed in the top eight after securing a 3-0 record in the Swiss stage, before falling to FaZe in the quarter-finals.
Liquid, who recently swapped Lucas "steel" Lopes for Epitacio "TACO" de Melo, have thus far disappointed to put up satisfying results with the new lineup, finishing 9th-12th in their debut at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
However, they will have plenty of chances to redeem themselves, as they are now confirmed to attend four large-scale tournaments during the next two months, including ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals, StarSeries i-League Season 5, and ESL One stops in Belo Horizonte and Cologne.
With Liquid's addition, the team list for ESL One Cologne, taking place on July 3-8, looks as follows:
Four more directly invited teams are left to be revealed by the organizers, with the remaining four coming from qualifiers in Europe (2 slots), North America, and Asia, which will run throughout May.
