HISTORY
CREATED: January 6, 2015(2015-01-06)


In January 2015, Team Curse was absorbed by Team Liquid (TL), a team based in the Netherlands. On its own, Team Liquid, though new to the League scene, had already made a name for itself in global eSports. Beginning as a StarCraft: Brood War team in 2000, it has since expanded into HearthStone: Heroes of WarCraft and Super Smash Bros. while also maintaining its StarCraft division. Aside from its squads, Team Liquid is known for its website - TeamLiquid.net - which is the most-visited StarCraft-related website in the world.

History

Upon merging with Team Curse in January 2015, Team Liquid inherited the former's LCS spot though the starting roster remained the same, which included Quas, IWillDominate, FeniX, Piglet and Xpecial. The team placed first in the 2015 NA LCS Summer/Regular Season and received an automatic bye into the semifinals of the bracket stage. Unfortunately, Team Liquid eventually lost in the semifinals 1-3 to Team SoloMid. TSM's subsequent loss to Counter Logic Gaming in the NA Summer Split Finals led to Team Liquid's automatic placement in the Finals of the 2015 NA LCS Regional Qualifiers – whether or not TL won the 3rd place match against Team Impulse. Team Liquid's 2015 season came to an end when the team lost in a close 1-3 series against a revitalized Cloud9, eliminating any possibility of playing in the 2015 World Championship.

By the 2016 Season, Team Liquid's roster had gone through some major changes in the wake of the departure of 3 of their original players from the rebranding. Xpecial had been replaced by Smoothie who in turn was replaced by Matt as starting support. Quas had been suspended and reevaluated his priorities which led to his retirement and eventual replacement by Lourlo. IWillDominate retired from professional League of Legends in January of 2016 which led to Dardoch becoming the starting jungler for Team Liquid. Despite such major roster changes, the team did well in the 2016 Spring Split, finishing in the top half of the North American LCS.
