Aydin “iNSaNiA” Sarkohi, the captain of Team Liquid, spoke about his delight over Micha “Nisha” Jankowski’s recent accession to the team as well as his feelings regarding the departure of previous teammate Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen and coach Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka. He said that although though Nisha has been working hard and getting along well with the team, the team still misses the influence and contributions of the former members. He added that the team’s coach and another player had been filling the shot caller void created by MATUMBAMAN’s retirement. The impact of Nisha on the team, according to iNSaNiA of Liquid
Natalie “NatTea” Mahoney, who was moderating the panel discussion, questioned Liquid’s iNSaNiA about his thoughts on Nisha’s immediate influence after she joined the team during the winner’s post-match interview. While Coach Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka and player Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen left the club, it has been a pleasure to have Nisha on the team, Nisha said with a smile. However, he also observed that the team is still adjusting to their departure.
Even if he isn’t the team’s finest player, Nisha is a valuable asset. [Laughs] On the other hand, I’m really pleased with Nisha’s performances. Nisha has been fantastic and fits in into the group, and I believe that things are going well for the group right now. The fact that MATUMBAMAN & Jesse [JerAx] left last year after having quite the impact at TI11, though, means that we will undoubtedly miss them. There are currently conflicting emotions, but Nisha has been fantastic!
Alexandra “Sheepsticked” on the panel Roberts then asked iNSaNiA about the team’s chemistry in the wake of MATUMBAMAN’s retirement as the latter was widely regarded as the team’s shot caller. He pointed out that the Finnish carry had created a hole that had been filled by Coaches William “Blitz” Lee & Ludwig “zai” Whlberg.
“William [Blitz] definitely has a significant impact on our draughts and has played a key role in our recent victories, both at TI11 and in the current DPC. Zai, however, continued where Matu left off in the game because he and Blitz were always talking about the draughts and zai was the one who would guide us through executing them.
Gaimin Gladiators, Tundra Esports, and Team Liquid are presently tied for the lead with them, but many experts already see them as one of the teams who will be guaranteed straight qualification to the forthcoming Lima Major at the conclusion of the first tour. The 16th of January will see Team Liquid face off against Entity.
