Overview[edit]

EG-Liquid was a partnership between the teams Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid. The two teams formed a combined roster of players in order to compete in Proleague. The partnership was announced on December 4, 2012.[1][2]

History[edit]

2012-2013 Proleague[edit]

EG-Liquid made their debut as the first foreign team to compete in Proleague on December 8, 2012. Their first match was against KT Rolster, which resulted in a 0-4 loss for EG-Liquid. For this match, EG-Liquid had to play without TaeJa, HerO, and Stephano. EG-Liquid scored their first win in Proleague in Week 2 with a 4-0 win against Samsung Khan. By the end of Round 1, EG-Liquid ended up 4th overall, with a record of 3-4.

Round 2 marked the debut of Stephano in Proleague. During Week 1, EG-Liquid was all-killed by KT Rolster’s Flash, but managed to beat SKT T1 4-2. Week 2 was Stephano’s first appearance in Proleague, in the matchup versus CJ Entus. After being down 1-2, Stephano was picked to play against CJ’s herO. During the start of the match, Stephano typed “gl, hf” and was given a warning by the KeSPA referees. Stephano won 2 games for EG-Liquid before falling to Hydra, with EG-Liquid ultimately losing 3-4 to CJ Entus. Round 2 ended with EG-Liquid going 3-4, with an overall score of 6-8 for the entire season.

By Round 3, the EG-Liquid hype had died down after 2 losing rounds. The beginning of Round 3 was no improvement, with 4-1 losses to STX SouL and Samsung KHAN. EG-Liquid’s lack of Proleague experience showed, with a 1-6 record in Round 3 and a 7-14 overall record for the season. This poor performance put EG-Liquid in last place, behind Team 8

After the poor performance in Round 3, EG-Liquid announced on March 13 that they would be adding former SKT Coach Park Yong Woon as the new head coach.[3] After releasing PuMa, EG picked up both aLive and Oz, reaffirming their commitment to a focus on Proleague. [4]

On July 22nd, Coach Park left EG-TL to become the head coach of CJ Entus.[5]
