Liquid have confirmed the signing of FalleN from MIBR
Team Liquid have completed the signing of FalleN from MIBR. The Brazilian AWPer comes in to replace Twistzz, who recently departed Team Liquid after more than three years with the organization.
“Joining an organisation like Team Liquid feels like an amazing accomplishment,” FalleN said in a statement.
“I chose Liquid because I played against them many years, I know their strengths and I know how well they can play. I think that, with my abilities and the way I think about the game, I can be helpful.”
FalleN is expected to become the main AWPer for the squad, a role that Team Liquid have been unable to find a suitable replacement for after Nick “nitr0” Cannella left the team in August of last year. It is still unknown if he will become the in-game leader, a role that Stewie2k is currently occupying on the team.
“With the knowledge that I have and with the knowledge that the other players in Liquid have, we can combine those things and create a stronger unit.” FalleN noted.
“But I’ll be just as fine if the team wants me to just focus on the AWP, for example.”
FalleN played alongside Stewie2k during a stint on MIBR in 2018, and he will once more reunite with the American as they look to bring Liquid back to the top in 2021.
Liquid’s roster now looks as follows:
