Dear LiquidDota community,When TL.net began as a site for StarCraft fans in 2002, we never imagined how large our community would grow and how diverse its interests would become. With its incredible depth and highly competitive esports scene, Dota 2 was a natural game for TL.net members to explore. As a fan of Dota 2 and the original Dota, it was amazing to see TL.net members carry the spirit of TL’s Brood War articles and discussions over into a new game, growing the forums and news coverage to the degree that Dota 2 fully warranted its own separate website.
While LiquidDota originated on TL.net, over the years it grew to have its own forum culture, its own IRL meetups, its own style of writing, its own sense of community. The LiquidDota staff and community members created some of the highest quality content in the Dota 2 scene, including in-depth player profiles, TI previews, detailed tournament coverage, and high level strategy guides. We’re extremely proud of everything the staff and community have created together, and I believe LiquidDota made a lasting impact on the Dota 2 scene.
Unfortunately, we must announce that as of June 15th, 2022, LiquidDota.com will shut down and be reintegrated into TL.net. Since the site first launched in 2014, the landscape for both Dota 2 and community sites has changed drastically, and activity on LiquidDota has declined as a result. As such, we’ve made the difficult decision to absorb the Dota 2 forums back into TL.net and close LiquidDota as a standalone site.
Dota 2 still holds a dear place in our hearts and this will never change. We picked up our first team in 2013 and have been committed to the game and scene with all of its ups and downs ever since.
We thank all of the community members, writers, editors, artists, moderators, admins, and anyone who ever added an event to the calendar or maintained a live report thread. You were the heart of LiquidDota, and we’re grateful we could be a part of something special together.
