Introduction[edit]

It all started with the clan Team Liquid. The clan was founded by Liquid`Nazgul around the end of 2000. After leaving [i'm] he spent about 3 months thinking about what to do next before making the decision to start his own clan which held 4 members for the first months and slowly grew to 8 players a year later.

The members of the Liquid clan are handpicked by Liquid`Nazgul based on both personality and talent. It is considered to be just as important to be good mannered as it is to be talented. Since the focus of the clan is not upon playing Clanwars the members are allowed to join another clan next to Liquid.

The website was later founded on May 1st 2001 by Liquid`Nazgul and Liquid`Meat with the name teamliquid.cjb.net and some pages of this first website have luckily been preserved and can still be seen. On September 22nd 2002 the website then moved to the now known address with this post as the grand opening and a day later the very first poll in which there even was the danger the site would have gotten the name of likwit.com

The picture on top of Team Liquid is from a painting done by Jim Warren called Avalanche. Contrary to popular belief it is not from Lord of The Rings, however the scene from LotR where the Nazgul are overtaken by the river did influence the choice to use this banner. The original design was done by Smorrie. In January 2008 Team Liquid was contacted by jimwarren.com with the message that they love the banner and if we could properly credit them for it. Since then their link has been on the bottom at any part of the site.
