With no less than 14 different teams in just about every esport there is, Team Liquid is easily one of the most recognizable brands in the industry. But their pride and joy is their Counter-Strike team, currently ranked as the second best team in the world. Team Liquid were the runner-ups in most of the grand tournaments in 2018 and are consistently eliminating the world’s best teams. Their name might be Liquid, but make no mistake – they’re rock solid.
