Officielt: YEKINDAR presenterer Team Liquid på BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022perepelovsky
According to the HLTV portal, which refers to the club's official statement, YEKINDAR will represent Team Liquid at the upcoming BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022. Thus, the Latvian star will officially play his second championship in the club's "liquid" colors.
Despite the absence of a full agreement between the organizations, YEKINDAR was allowed to play for Team Liquid once again at BLAST, which will be the first TIER-1 tournament after the summer break.
YEKINDAR became a real star of the competitive scene as part of Virtus.pro (later Outsiders). In two years, the player helped the team win Flashpoint Season 2, DreamHack Open December 2020, cs_summit 7 and ESL Challenger #48, as well as reach the semifinals and quarterfinals of the Intel Extreme Masters XV - World Championship and PGL Major Stockholm 2021, respectively.
However, after a series of problems that fell on the team, Marek decided to leave the Russian club. As a result, YEKINDAR managed to try on the Team Liquid jersey as part of the Intel Extreme Masters XVII - Cologne, reaching the semi-finals of the championship in Cologne with the team.
Recall that the North American team has officially presented changes in the starting lineup after the end of Intel Extreme Masters XVII - Dallas. As a result, shox and adreN left the team. While daps became the new coach, the organization never managed to find a permanent replacement for the Frenchman. Nevertheless, YEKINDAR fit perfectly into the roster, receiving a lot of praise from teammates and analysts.
The next stop for Team Liquid will be BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022, which will take place from August 19-28. Recall that the North American team ended up in the same group with G2 Esports, NAVI and Complexity Gaming.
Team Liquid roster at BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022 is as follows:
