Yes you read correctly, after the recent merger between Team Liquid and Team Curse they have been quick to announce a new addition to the all new Team Liquid. This comes in the form of a new CS:GO team comprised of some well known names and certainly one to watch.

The team consists of:

Eric"adreN" Hoag
Nick "nitrO" Cannella
Jacob "FugLy" Medina
Keith "NAF" Markovic
Damian "Daps" Steele

They are almost certainly going to challenge in the top tiers of Counterstrike and we eagerly await to see them in action under their new banner.

If you want to read some words from the man Eric"adreN" Hoag himself then head over to our sister site below for a statement and even a video with the man himself talking about the changes:

While Netease and Blizzard China intends to utilize its currently running domestic premier tournament gold series pro league (http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft2/gpl_2014_season_2) as the qualifier for WCS, several time and logistics reasons mean WCS season 1 will have to rely on a traditional WCS open qualifier, leaving the GPL integration for later seasons, with details announcing on a later date.

Registration of WCS Season 1 China qualifier starts on January 1st, 2015 and ends on January 4th, Chinese citizenship or viable visas (as regulated by the Blizzard WCS 2015 rules) are required. It will be a 256-man open qualifier, consisted of two stages:

Stage 1 (January 5th to 8th, not streamed): Round of 256 to Round of 16, single elimination;
Stage 2 (January 9th to 10th, streamed): Round of 16 to Round of 8, double elimination bracket.

WCS China Challenger:
January 11th, 4 Best of 5 single elimination

Top 4 finishers will represent China in WCS 2015 Season 1 Premier League, played offline at ESL's studios in Burbank, California, United States or Cologne, Germany.

Liquipedia: TBD
English stream: TBA

Editor's Note: eSports Heaven has worked to provide as much coverage as possible of Chinese events, and we have a good relationship with NeoTV. We will try our utmost to provide an English stream for the qualifiers, and will post any further details on an English qualifier broadcast here on eSports Heaven. There will be a Chinese stream for the RO16 onwards, and we will attempt to ensure there is global coverage of this qualifier as well!

Ding Ding Round 2! Fight! We are back and glad to announce that, in corporation with G2A.com, we will be running the second DOTA 2 tournament in this Community Series installment. Another €100 of game vouchers is up for grabs to the winners, so don't linger, spaces are limited!

As the title states, big changes for the European casting duo appear to be ahead. Both Joe and Deman are two of the most prolific casters in Esports Europe has produced, moving from historic days of casting Call of Duty, Quake and the Counterstrike series respectively, they reached the higher echelons of casting fame when they became the faces of the European LCS along with their fellow casting team.

It would appear big changes are ahead for the two professional casters with expansion into other games. For more details head over to our sister site, http://www.esportsheaven.com for more Esports News and more specifically the article which covers this news story HERE



Due to some recent revelations along with several event clashes the decision to postpone the ESH Community Series CS:GO 1 tournament for 1 week has been taken. This will enable the current clashing events to pass as well as allow for additional sign up time to the teams who have been engaged in said events.

The amendments have been made to the tournament, advertised in the post beneath this one, so please see the tournament news for all scheduling and team information.
