It has been a while since I posted news.. That sentence might sound familiar as I probably used it last time I made a news-post and the time before that and also probably the time before that, there was a time however.. http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=80012. Usually there is a good reason for this.
With ten thousands of visitors every day the name teamliquid has been leading a life on its own, the ones that have been around long enough will remember the double meaning of the name team liquid. The tag is still carried by a bunch of guys most of you will consider oldschool; Froz, Daaman, Drone, Satanik, legendary Meat webmaster of this website and more. Lately things have been quiet around the team. Most of us have quit playing StarCraft actively, TSL being the heroic exception to the rule. I always thought that for SC2 we’d be back in full force dominating the foreign scene once again making this website and its members proud. Turns out you won’t have to wait that long!
We are announcing the best thing that has happened to this team in a long long time as you will see the Liquid tag in action again real soon. A true refreshment to the team, the man you know from his 4th place finish at TSL and his crushing first place finishes at the Spirit tournament and WCG USA will from this point on be known as Liquid.Nony. He will be playing in TL Attack this weekend ready to crush any monkey that dares to challenge him on his new id. Nony does not take this heavy burden lightly:
"I'm honored to join such a legendary team and super excited to bring Liquid back to Korea!!"
Well, Nony, we’re damn honored to have you. I can see nothing but great things ahead for you and Liquid. Look for us to combine old and new when SC2 is released but for now enjoy and support Nonys journey to Korea and welcome him to his new home!
Liquid`NonY on TLAThis Sunday @ 4pm EST | 1pm PST | 10pm CET | Mon 5am KST
If you plan on playing, ensure you have the latest version of both Chaos Launcher and the Latency Plugin. Please do me a favour and update your Chaos now rather than assuming it's up to date:
Update your Chaos Launcher
The player with the "best play" (As voted on by the commentators and Nony) will receive a MASTER mousepad courtesty of http://www.esportnova.com
The best play could be an interesting build or tactic, a cute move, or any number of things. Suffice it to say we'll know it when we see it, as shown by the winners of past episodes:
-4 Hatch Zergling break
-Leaving a game
-Playing a great game vs Xiaozi
-Playing a great game vs Dreiven
-Drawing the cookie monster with Zerglings
-Playing well against Sea[Shield]
-Playing well against JianFei
How To Watch
This post will be updated prior to the stream going live to include details on how to watch live in VLC or WMM. VODs and Replays will be released after the event is complete. If you are familiar with watching the TSL, watching TLA will be just as simple.
How To Play
Get on Battle.net USWest (using Chaos Launcher) and open the stream. Once we are ready for a guest, we will announce over the stream which channel we are in. That's your cue to get in the channel before it fills and convince Nony that you are worthy of a game with him!
If you want to participate, you should have Chaos Launcher enabled. Install it, tick the box next to "Latency Changer" and then launch StarCraft from within Chaos Launcher.
ICC Launcher is NOT Chaos Launcher
ADVLoader is NOT Chaos Launcher
Ensure you have Latency Changer enabled in Chaos Launcher!
