As the days go by, the number of big name esports organisations appearing on team sheets for Valorant tournaments gets larger, and Team Liquid looks set to be the latest on the list.
According to reports from 1PV and ESPN, Team Liquid will soon announce that it has acquired the four remaining British players from Valorant team fish123 as well as Belgian former-CS:GO pro Adil ‘ScreaM’ Benrlitom. ScreaM, who has had a long and journeyed career in Counter-Strike esports with teams such as G2 and Fnatic, has recently played as a stand-in for fish123 in a couple of Valorant tournaments after it lost its fifth man, Ardis ‘ardiis’ Svarenieks, to G2’s new Valorant squad.
While an official announcement is still yet to be made by Liquid, it seems set in stone that ScreaM will be uniting with British quartet Adam ‘ec1s’ Eccles, Dom ‘soulcas’ Sulcas, James ‘Kryptik’ Affleck, and Travis ‘L1NK’ Mendoza on a permanent basis.
While a number of organisations such as T1 or FaZe Clan have set sights on the North American scene, Liquid has taken the plunge into the less explored European scene, with G2 being the only other major name so far to have invested in a team to compete in European competition.
Fish123’s roster (including ScreaM) is set to compete in tomorrow’s $50,000 WePlay! Invitational. It is likely that Liquid will confirm the signings later today (June 14) in order for the team to play under its banner at the tournament.
Yesterday also saw Team Envy take the plunge into Valorant after signing Together We Are Terrific’s all-North American roster.
