adreN to miss PGL Major Stockholm

Liquid's manager, Steve "jokasteve" Perino, will step in for the duration of the tournament.

Eric "⁠adreN⁠" Hoag has announced that he will not attend PGL Major Stockholm with Liquid as he prepares for the birth of his child, leaving the team's manager, jokasteve, to take his place.

The loss of adreN comes as a big blow to Liquid ahead of the Major as the team have looked a more cohesive unit in recent weeks, with Keith "⁠NAF⁠" Markovic and Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip both putting up numbers reminiscent of their glory days.

adreN will not stand behind Liquid as they fight for a Major crown

"I will be sitting out the Major due to the upcoming timing of my son's birth," adreN explained in an Instagram post. "First major in over two years AND with a crowd is going to be so hype and I'm sad to be missing it but I would never miss this moment with [my wife]."

jokasteve has been Liquid's team manager since 2015, and can often be seen sitting nearby during their practices and official matches. He has also stepped in as coach for the team on previous occasions, including at ELEAGUE Premier 2018, where Liquid finished in second place to Astralis.

Despite not having the same tactical base and depth of knowledge as adreN, the 31-year-old will provide a familiar voice behind the players in the server as they make their Major bid.

A second place finish on the North American Regional Major Rankings leaderboard earned Liquid a spot in the Legends Stage of PGL Major Stockholm, which will kick off on October 30. The Challengers Stage (previously the Major Main Qualifier) will begin on October 26, and offer eight spots in the Legends Stage.

Liquid will have the following roster for PGL Major Stockholm:

United States Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski
Canada Keith "⁠NAF⁠" Markovic
United States Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip
United States Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince
Brazil Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo

United States Steve "jokasteve" Perino (coach)

1/2. yes they still lost 3. okay so liquid apparently dont want to win tournaments 4. ok and whos to say they wont be in bad form at major 5. not really, if you lose = you lose, you couldve almost won because the other team had a shit day, bad form, etc. if you win, you win, you lose, you lose

3. literally irrelevant match, they were prepping for blast and they won it, no need to play for rmr points if you're already a legend 4. obvi no one can know what the form will be like, but based on the most recent things we've seen, liquid is in good form 5. you could also say the same thing about a win, one team could have a god day while the other had a bad day, the fact that liquid kept it close on 3 different maps with gambit shows that they're capable of winning against the top teams

Here me out and I throughly believe this, Joka is the missing key to Liquids Major championship.
2021-10-18 23:31
Such unlucky timing, even worse than gla1ves timing even though that was not really unlucky, cause he has xyp9x to sub in. But the onlything that can make Adren's child birth is a major win, we've seen team liquid with joka steve do great at eleague winning against a navi that just won esl one cologne 2018 beating best team astralis at the time.

Don't know the backstory of this but, man that's really unprofessional. Imagine having to play some of the most important matches of your career and just throw it all away because of your unborn child......

Nothing sad about it honestly, this was unexpected and when the major was announced, moses was the coach. Also its his first child. he just can't leave his wife alone at such a time. Majors are going to come every year anyway but the happiness of the first child, its only gonna be once.

Congrats to him and his family but I expect Liquid to get eliminated in Challenger stage anyway. So he won't miss much I don't think.

Oh that's right. They are in Legend Stage. The travesty of regional qualifier that somehow NA region got the same amount of slots like EU. Furia, EG and TL are actually on Legend stage when Astralis has to fight in Challenger stage.

Yeah but FalleN can only do so much IGL'ing, it helps to have a 2nd guy also coming up with strats to take the load off of FalleN.. also because FalleN is an AWPer as well so he needs to also make sure he will deliver with the AWP

True but it can be calculated for sure.. like I know Valentine is spicy but if you knew major is in November then maybe be a bit careful? There needs to be a balance between professional and personal life I think. Liquid will take a huge hit and this can affect them a lot...

You have very little knowledge of how pregnancy works. Some people try for years before succeeding. It’s not like you decide at some point “today is the day!”. No, you try and you try and when you succeed it’s a very lucky occasion

Real men who work in the building business are called on the day of birth from work and get a day off. This guy has no real drive for T1 CS, is pampered in inflated salary and price money. Lost no respect because he had not gained anything as a coach. As a husband its nice that he cares about his family, but for a fan of competition he seems to be out of place. I see no drive in him on the regular day of coaching, maybe I am wrong but the optics in total are bad. He is one of the few in tier1 cs on which thorins mamba speech had no effect.

If he only got called on the day his child was born he wouldn't be in America with his wife, he would be in Sweden with a long time difference, who would you say Liquid should take as a coach over Adren, they are playing decent rn no need to change, no real coaches left in NA anyway best they might do is Shakezullah

2021-10-19 22:38
If you were truly committed you'd remain abstinent during the period 9 months before the major to make sure things like this don't happen. Kidding, family first always. Congrats to Adren, wild that his kid is gonna be born on the same day liquid win the major :]
