Liquid announce daps as new coach

The Canadian in-game leader will be standing behind Liquid starting at IEM Cologne.

Liquid announced on Monday that Damian "⁠daps⁠" Steele will be taking over the coaching position moving forward as the North American squad prepares for its next Big Event, IEM Cologne.

Liquid bench shox and adreN

The move comes just a day after the organization announced the benching of both rifler Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon and coach Eric "⁠adreN⁠" Hoag from the main roster after a disappointing start to 2022, during which Liquid's best result came in the form of a 5-8th place finish at ESL Pro League Season 15.

daps will meet familiar faces as he takes the reins in Liquid

This will be daps' first role back in the professional scene after taking a break following his stint with the Orgless project he founded earlier this year. The team was never able to break into the higher tiers of competition, only ever attaining success in local ESEA Cash Cups before eventually disbanding back in April.

Before that, from 2017 to 2019, daps had been in charge of the NRG squad that went on to find much success under Evil Geniuses, a roster he fostered as an in-game leader and later a coach. He then returned to playing in Cloud9 and Gen.G before joining back up with his former NRG teammates as Evil Geniuses' coach in 2021.

Coaching Liquid will mark daps' second tour with the North American organization, for which he briefly played in early 2015 alongside Keith "⁠NAF⁠" Markovic, Nick "⁠nitr0⁠" Cannella, Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski and the outgoing coach he's replacing, adreN.

Liquid are now just one announcement away from having a starting five, as the active lineup is down to four players after shox took his leave from the team and was moved to the bench.

Following daps' addition, Liquid's roster is currently:

United States Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski
United States Josh "⁠oSee⁠" Ohm
United States Nick "⁠nitr0⁠" Cannella
Canada Keith "⁠NAF⁠" Markovic

Canada Damian "⁠daps⁠" Steele (coach)

United States Eric "⁠adreN⁠" Hoag (benched)
France Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon (benched)

cs is atleast 90% instinct based, you do things with the information you get during a game, roles don't affect that at all except positions you play, only in set tactics it has an effect but even those are most of the time based on spawns / other factors

+1 at the ends its a game, his skill is in his insticts and aim, brain and so.. not in his roles.
2022-06-20 20:25
This was true 5-9 years ago But the game has evolved much more of a strategy bases game. Practice and vods beats all. Information is power now, you can't just play deathmatch. I don't even see how instincts and roles are opposites. It's Yekindar's instincts to entry, so is Elige's. That's a problem because having 2 hard entries is not a good thing.
2022-06-20 23:57
100% agree dude. it's so ridiculous how the hltv herd keep talking about roles in cs, like the gameplay somehow is different for each role, like in dota for example. cs is 80% micro and confidence, and only 20% macro.

not really btw instincs and roles are one and the same its like saying positions dont matter in football everybody has their own set of skills in cs and putting them in a position where they can use their skillset the most is what makes great teams great btw macro and micro positioning is everything in cs

dude you have to hit headshots, as anchor you have to provide your team with multikills, or win at least 1 duel. it is unacceptable to have a shit aim, but be a good "support" or "igl". everyone has to know how to throw good nades, everyone can make a call from time to time. cs is even less complicated than chess, cs is also one dimensional. this "roles" shit is ridiculous. navi kicked washed lowtab flamie and brought a decent player b1t - insta fixed all problems. faze got rid of old washed players and brought in two of the most capable players - insta fixed all problems. ence kicked lowtab doto - insta top 3. gambit y had everyone in the team contributing kills wise that's why c9 is in top 4. now watch g2 replace jackz wth a young gun and maybe aleksib - insta fixed roster.

yes getting kills is important, what my point is that positioning and roles have huge impact on "getting kills". you want examples? magisk going to astralis which allowed dupreeh to go to his old roles which instantly made him a top 10 player (probably even better, i dont rember, mmyb he was 6th in 2018).
2022-06-22 17:44
one of the best example would be jks in Katowice this year

2022-06-21 09:19
Yo le noob, Your take is as retarded as the guy above you, it’s not easy at all to switch roles, and it’s what killed shox because he was supposed to replace naf and take his roles but when he ended up staying shox had to entry which he never did in his entire carreer, and we see the result. And the second guy is equally as dumb because yekindar is the exact role fix Liquid needs, they have 4 baiters rn, they need someone to entry and get space.

It's a reset of pre-shox Liquid: Yekindar - entry EliGE - second entry Naf - lurk oSee - AWP nitr0 - IGL/support It's a better set up as Naf is miles ahead of shox at lurking.

Youre saying it like shox’s “role” was something important to liquid, naf is a lurker, idek why they even considered shox in the first place.

they are the same role. shox is a natural lurker but he was playing entry on liquid for some reason. so by removing shox, liquid needs an entry. yekindar is an entry. you may have known that they had shox playing entry if you even watched the games.
2022-06-20 22:48
When liquid brought in shox they had to shuffle around roles a lot, bringing in yekindar will likely make there roles more like the stewie days. Shox created role problems, yekindar will likely fix them
2022-06-20 22:59
not only can naf play (and has played) all of shox's roles in the past, but yekindar is an all around better player than shox and is an incredible entry, which liquid were lacking in.

Stew was an good entry fragger .. but his toxicity destroyed the team, talk shit about grim - argue with FalleN for small mistake - wanna igl while FalleN good at it for all those things, he was Forced to go, with no come back to liquid again
2022-06-21 00:17
Shox is only good at lurking because the only chance he has is shooting players in the back. He was never on NAFs level cause NAF doesn't just take opponents off guard but dead on while pushing as well. The thing that concludes NAF for the role is he clutches rounds because he knows how to play his damn cards right and make the best opponents from the other team disappear. Yeh I come off as a jerk but ever since Shox joined Liquid the dude looked like a fraud. He talked a lot and at the same time he could barely handle a duel. Did the guy have aimbot stored in his mouse back in the day or something?
2022-06-21 06:45
Ahh naf goes to lurk ( his orginal position) and yekindar plays entry and agro roles with nitro as support?

To be fair, Shox going to liquid is what not made sense at all, because nada is the lurker, with him gone and yekindar in, NAF goes back to lurk and yekindar takes Stewie or twistzz role.

2022-06-20 21:30
NAF plays true lurk again and yekindar full entry, elige second entry will make things a lot better for T side elige who has been struggling, basically yekindar replaces stewie from old liquid on ct: just put yekindar in star spots(ex: shox had pit on inferno)
2022-06-20 21:11
Umm? Shox literally entried for them and elige has the most freedom on the team so when he's feeling it he's aggro and when he's not shox does it. That's why Liquid need yekindar so elige can just play his roles
2022-06-20 22:07

the idea of having a passive coach who focuses more on mindset/motivation instead of telling the team what to do was (in my opinion) pretty much the main reason liquid had moses in the first place, i don't think it's exclusive to EG if you really think about it, you can't really name a single NA coach that really had an active role within the team like b1ad3, zonic, XTQZZZ, maleK etc., who all seem to have a lot to say when it comes to their team's direction
2022-06-20 21:12
It's true that EVY just talked about his experience in EG, but it's been talked about many times before about NA teams in general. EliGE brought adreN back to the team because he's EliGE's yes-man for example. And you never addressed how trace is in any way sidelined like the NA coaches have historically been. "3- same with number 2." doesn't make any sense.

You're right about number 3. Trace doesn't look as a decider, specially if you compare him to Zonic. Zonic had authority and everyone listenened to him.

Snax would fit in this team better than Yekindar imo cause of ability to do secondary calling.
2022-06-20 19:49
I wish they would’ve gotten maleK for storyline purposes, but daps is a great coach, as long as he keeps koosta as far away from this project as possible, this will be a good team. I’m hoping for floppy or yekindar.

Yeah daps brought him on Orgless after Infinite left for health reasons. His addition actually killed the roster because the original plan was for koosta to rifle and for Minus to continue AWPing, but after a couple matches, koosta got his way and was AWPing, but wasn’t doing much if anything with it. That team could’ve been the next big NA roster if daps didn’t think about his friends more than the future of that team.

I can’t forget about that lineup. I really thought they were going to be the next big NA roster. They had the firepower, they had the strategy, and everyone had roles they were solid in. Adding koosta punctured a hole in the boat, and moving Minus off the AWP in favor of koosta made the boat sink.

Daps is more a real coach than Adren. I agree there are better coach than him, but for NA, it is the best you can get. Daps is still involved in CS.

2022-06-21 05:05
so in other words what they're confirming is that daps is here as a placeholder for stanislaw? thats how it usually works anyway also i feel bad for whoever joins this lineup, it's doomed to fail. we'll never see liquid be a top team again unless they make big changes. -elige would be the beginning of that.

It's pretty clear to me by now that Liquid is uncoachable as they don't accept any coach that might try and bring something more than being moral support. adreN sitting in the back doing nothing, calling no timeouts. moses getting kicked close to immediately he got going, and now they bring in daps. What is he going to do? The team needs a culture shift before they can even try a coach.
