A new report highlights just how desperate Team Liquid was in their recent rush to reshuffle their roster. Last night on a high enough level to be successful. He almost immediately walked that answer back, however, and instead said that his reluctance to join was due to not wanting to join a "tenth place garbage-ass team". 

However crude his sentiment, it isn't entirely wrong. Team Liquid is currently sitting on a 2-8 record that ties it with Team EnVyUs for last place in the league. While that does make Qtpie technically incorrect, there's little doubt on anyone's mind that Liquid is destined for the promotion tournament, especially now that the team has inexplicably decided to move Piglet into the mid lane, a move that likely only makes sense to Piglet himself. Team Liquid also has a tough week ahead of them, as they face off against both the Immortals and Echo Fox this week, and while neither of those teams look to be on top form, they both look positively amazing when compared to the Team Liquid squad.

Team Liquid's new starting ADC, according to their roster on lolesports, is now Youngbin. Youngbin has already played for Team Liquid in the past, though it was for their Challenger team, and he played the mid lane at the time. Whether or not Imaqtpie would have proven a more valuable asset on the Rift is an open question, but he certainly would have brought tremendous fan attention to a team that struggling to maintain it's positive image during a difficult season. Had Imaqtpie joined Team Liquid, there's no doubt they would have immediately become one of the most popular teams in the region, regardless of whether or not they proved successful.

He's in love with narrative-heavy games, which he proves by spending his days writing about a game with less lore than Doom. His greatest regret in life is not having his name in the credits of Life is Strange, and it's galvanized him to truly pursue developing games that don't begin in packed taverns and use D20s.
