Just recently announced via TeamLiquidPro.com the well renowned eSports organization, is now expanding to Halo, specifically HCS. The newly formed team consists of Aries, Ninja, Shooter, Spartan the Dogg and the coach Kyle “Elamite Warrior” Elam.
Here’s a quick write-up from TeamLiquid:
There are very few franchises as old and as storied as Halo. Its place in esports history is rivaled only by Starcraft, but the competitive scene experienced a period of difficulty after the launch of Halo4. Yet the passion of its fans inspired 343 esports to carry the game on its back, and in their hands competitive play has received renewed focus. The latest modification saw a lot of changes and fixes geared towards the improvement of the game at the highest level. This injection of new ideas revitalized the game entirely, and a tournament circuit was created together with the relaunch. The addition of several respected ex-professionals proved to be a stroke of genius as they helped create the best version of the game to date. In short: Halo is looking better than ever.
It is in this new and positively developing environment that we have found an incredible set of guys to work with. From our first interaction with Spartan, Ninja, Aries and Shooter, we were confident that this was a team that could represent us in a rejuvenated Halo scene. While Ninja’s name will naturally attract most of the attention, we can’t stress enough how delighted we are to work with all of them. The players too have expressed their excitement in finally seeing this announcement made official, so that they can start representing Liquid in their next tournament. This arrangement could not have been completed without the cooperation of both Elevate and Noble, and we’d like to thank them for working with the players and allowing this to happen.
In addition to welcoming the four players, we are also going to be working with Kyle Elam as our head coach. You might know him better under the ID Elamite, but for those of you who don’t know, he is an ex-US Champion and has been working with many other players throughout his career. With Kyle on board, the only future we see is a successful one.
Welcome to the team Liquid`Aries, Liquid`Elamite, Liquid`Ninja, Liquid`Shooter, and Liquid`Spartan.
Really can’t wait to see this team in action. This line up is pretty solid, and if the team can mesh well, this team can go pretty far. Probably not top EG anytime soon, but make a great run to the top.
