Liquid bring in moses as new Head Coach

Liquid have announced the signing of Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole as their new head coach.

The former professional player turned analyst and commentator, most known for his pairing with Anders "⁠Anders⁠" Blume in recent years, has decided to leave talent work to take on the new role of a head coach.

His addition to Liquid comes just a few days after the official announcement of the signing of a new player, Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince, who stepped into the shoes of the North American team's long-time in-game leader and AWPer, Nick "⁠nitr0⁠" Cannella.

moses leaves talent work behind to take on a new challenge

moses is effectively replacing Eric "⁠adreN⁠" Hoag, who leaves Liquid following a tenure dating back to late-2018, when he joined the North American side alongside Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip after the team lost Wilton "⁠zews⁠" Prado and Epitacio "⁠TACO⁠" de Melo to MIBR.

With adreN standing behind the team, Liquid reached new heights in 2019, becoming the No.1 team in the world and maintaining that spot for over three months in June to September as they won six consecutive Big Events and smashed the second season of Intel Grand Slam within 63 days.

However, a Major title is still missing on the team's resumé, which is the main box the team will hope to tick off with the new coach after they went out in the quarter-finals of IEM Katowice and StarLadder Major in 2019. "If me coming in as a coach with this team doesn't yield a Major trophy, then this has been a failure. That's the goal," moses said in the announcement video.

Liquid now have:

United States Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski
Canada Russel "⁠Twistzz⁠" Van Dulken
Canada Keith "⁠NAF⁠" Markovic
United States Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip
United States Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince

United States Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole (coach)

Such a selfish move. Only thinking about yourself. What about all your number 1 fans who only watch matches to hear you cast? You just snubbed them all for your personal "goals". Honestly I expected more out of you but I guess you're only motivated by money after all.
2020-08-09 20:59
Why do feel entitled to decide what this guy does with his career? If you actually care about him as a person you be supporting his move to coaching. Why should he stick with a job that he has been doing for such a long time just to appease random people on the internet rather than chase this new coaching opportunity? Let him be happy.

I hope you're trolling lol. Do you seriously expect moses to prioritize his fans' desires over his personal dreams and goals in life? You're selfish and stupid to think that way. Imagine if you were VP of a company and everybody loved you as the VP, but you had the opportunity to become the CEO. Are you telling me that you would stay as VP just because people love you as VP rather than becoming CEO?

Thanks for posting the link. If #198 actually linked steel's tweet, that would have helped.

Nice bait but Top tier CS:GO talent who leave being on camera to become coaches are doing it out of drive and passion, because likely they are actually taking a pay cut. Respect to those willing to chase another dream when they had already achieved one! - thorin

Who cares what people like? If moses wants to become a coach like YnK, then he has every right to do so. Why would anyone in moses' shoes give a shit about what the fans prefer his career to be? He'd be stupid to turn down such a great opportunity in life. If anything, moses can always go back to being an analyst / caster if the coaching gig doesn't work out.

I agree with you. I hope that Moses changes this scenario. If Liquid want to become #1 again, they must be open to every possible map.
2020-08-09 20:33
It's really a joke. Overpass is TL's good map, but they don't dare to play it against Astralis, and they have no chance to win the Nuke and little chance in D2 and Inferno. What the Astralis needed is to remove Mirage and the series is over.
2020-08-09 20:37

2020-08-09 22:45

Let's take a look to a concrete example so I can illustrate my point of view. Furia have been an obstacle to Liquid in NA, right?. Furia are quite good when playing Mirage. Their recent winrate was 100% or something like that. By autobanning Train, Liquid suffer from an automatic 0-1 disadvantage against Furia in BO3 eliminations. I know that elige and other Liquid players repudiate Train (just look for some tweets), but they do have to overcome this state of affairs. Liquid were only able to win the Grand Slam because they were invincible playing Overpass and were great players in D2, Inferno, and Mirage. Nuke and then old Vertigo were okayish. There is no guarantee that this is ever going to happen again. Read Haoyuan comment above. He emphasizes my point.
2020-08-09 21:04
I meant to reply literally to #130 Astralis was banning Mirage but were still #1
2020-08-09 21:15
Astralis can play Mirage also. Don't forget in Katowice they beated NiP in the first half with 15-0 (the f0rest cheering scene remember?) They banned Mirage just because they're so overwhelming in all others maps so they ban other teams' best two map.

ADREN REPLACED BY CASTER KEKW
2020-08-09 20:15
Replaced by a caster who was a former pro and one of the best of his time. He has lived and breathed Counter Strike for a very long time. Furthermore, adreN wasn’t really a coach when he needed to be. Thorin emphasizes this in his video talking about Moses being added to replace adreN or at least make him an analyst behind the scenes. nitr0’s In-game leading as well was hurting them after their IGS and Cologne win. He wasn’t as proactive or communicative as he really should have been. Liquid literally just replaced their two weakest links. Respect to them both, but they were severely hurting Team Liquid.
2020-08-10 14:49
YnK, now moses. Who's next? Thorin in Astralis?
2020-08-09 20:15
Astralis have had a Thorin in their side for atleast 5 years
2020-08-09 20:18
thorin is known for hating astralis organization but he would probably still join if they gave him an offer ;)

True, though his ego might not be doing well. Edit: Thinking about this now, he's probably thinking he's too good for all of the events, so his ego is pretty much intact.
2020-08-09 23:31
Moses has every right to go after his personal goals and prioritize that over what CSGO's fan base would prefer him to do.

Adren was never a real coach. He was more like an analyst. Which is not what Liquid needs.

How do you know that? He just didnt fired up on anything like your precious sonic. But he definitely did a hell of a work back scene, that's why TL get their 1st grand slam.

I get it from his personality and the the way he acts around his players. I never said he didn't work hard. I only said he probably isn't fit as a real coach. He would fit better as an analyst. Also When did i praise zonic? What a strange comment...
2020-08-09 21:17
liquid won grand slam because all 5 of them were popping off at the same period of time, they're not inventing crazy strats like astralis or excecuting a site with pin point perfect smokes and flashes, they just did defaults with some variation and what differentiate them from other teams at summer 2019 was their raw aim and skills ( and also due to the fact astralis took somekind of a break ).
2020-08-10 12:56
just look at the recordings of tournaments where liquid struggled, there's alot of time where TL took timeouts and adreN just sat there without even talking to the team, i'm not saying he's a bad coach, he's a great analyst, but team liquid really needs moral support in order to get that momentum rolling and adreN doesn't necessarily has that.

team liquid doesn't need moral support for now. because their aim isn't as good as they used to. you need an actual strats now to win a series, that's why a great analyst is more useful nowadays than just a coach with good moral support. that's why i said kassad isn't really a perfect fit for TL. and maybe that's why they choose moses too. you should watch a lot of TL YT. every single TL team on every kind of esports get enough moral support from the org. they don't need someone to give them more, they need someone smart to win them trophy. not kassad. AdreN is a perfect fit for me, but moses is fine too.
2020-08-10 13:11
moral support in amidst of all of uncertainty in pro matches is miles away of a difference than a moral support when you're training in a bootcamp, they will never be the strat oriented team like other EU teams, they just need to hone that aim and confidence, and if those 2 is already great then a decent strat will work just fine, and i think Kassad or maybe for this instance moses can give them the confidence that they need but often lose whenever something goes wrong in a match

if they not gonna be a strat oriented team, they're not gonna achieve anything. other teams can easily counter you every single team. not to mention all of these guys also play a lot of valorant games, that maybe has some impact to their playstyle / aimwise. imagine if u had great aim + great strats just like astralis 2018 had.
2020-08-10 14:31
yeah because that's not their thing, that's always what separates NA from EU, NA teams just can't be the strat oriented team like EU teams because they're too used to play with a more free and loose approach to it, which isn't necessarily bad but that's why i mentioned they need a coach that can boost their confidence mid match, not some indepth analyst like adreN was

Not particularly impressed by this move but Moses is certainly better than YNk. Janko is just an arrogant dude who thinks he can quote motivational phrases and call it a job. Still analyst into coach is not something that worked out well historically. Maybe it is different this time.
2020-08-09 20:33
It worked for TL in League. They picked up Caster/Analyst Jatt and got from being in a slump to best team in LCS again with their most dominant regular season result until now (15-3). Not sure if it works in CS with moses but i appreciate the attempt.
2020-08-10 08:54

I think we should bring in Harry and Hugo as a replacement for anders and moses. Anders will still probably cast, but with semmler taking on the roll of desk host who knows what will happen. I definitely think Harry and Hugo are some great commentators and have been around for a while now, they just need to take their next step to do stuff like esl one cologne or the latter stages of the major. And also I will be so mad if fucking vince replaces moses. I can't stand that guy.

That’s not what i said. But i asked if you think it’s a flop perse. He has good knowledge of the game and has a certain vision of how he want liquid to play. Besides that is he super friendly on a personal level with that squad, almost all members. I think what they lack is a people manager, not necessarily a tactical genius coach. Since their lineup is more about skill and outshooting the opponent over set strats anyway. You think way to linear about the concept of a coach it seems. Also, the fact that you point out that being bald is something which unqualifies a person to do something well is laughable. Fking kid.

Dude since Moses only casted good games in big events, for the Liquid players it will look like they're gonna be playing a Major final every game with Moses voice during all the game. Just imagine, you hit an awesome awp flick and you hear Moses in the background shouting "OOOOH WHAT A SHOT" "HO DOES HE DO THIS"only to you and your friends to hear no one else :c sad boi hours

Uff.. You almosted give me earth attack, I think a fox vac or a moose coach moses not moose
2020-08-09 22:32
lmaooooooooooooo
2020-08-09 22:33
I guess they just felt like they needed a good motivator rather than a strong tactician. Someone with more leadership skills and a bit more presence on the team. I guess moses is a better fit then than adreN. Moses isn't that bad really, ex-pro in 1.6 and GO. Knows the scene, knows the players. Him and Grim will definitely get the most out of the current squad. I can definitely see Liquid dominating again now with Astralis on a hiatus. They will get that extra boost in morale now with Grim and moses that will tip them over the edge same as when Stewie + adreN joined

2020-08-09 22:50
I'm ok with this actually. This team could be dominant if Grim is a legit lan player.

adreN about to join the the talent work replacing moses?
2020-08-10 05:56
I think that job requires you to talk instead of just standing there, mouth open and looking weird. I'd say adren probably blew that chance already. But good for liquid. Atleast they're getting a coach who doesn't just stand there expecting the players to tell him how to tell them what a coach does or can do during matches. Because that guy always looked more clueless than the players themselves when he needed to step up and give input.

Someone please get Anders a box of tissues and a gift card for a therapist. Why would you leave him moses? He didn't even ask for a prenup and now you're leaving him on his own and having to take care of us kids all by himself? Not fair moses. That's simply just not fair.

Holy shit, unexpected move! The biggest lost here is the disbandment of the legendary commentating partnership between Moses and Anders..

2020-08-10 18:40
Its a win/lose situation. Im sure hes capable and able to act as a coach but if liquid choke out on the next major the community can possibly backfire on moses and he will def be blamed for them choking. Still the last person i was expecting.
2020-08-10 16:00
He will commentating his team in teamchat😂
