You can read up on their statement here.
Stephen MrGameTheory Takowsky joins the Liquid organization as their newest member and Civilization Team captain. MrGameTheory had this to say on his new role with Team Liquid,
“It is an honor to be chosen to lead Team Liquid’s Civilization team. Participating in the competitive Civilization community with Steve Arhancet has been one of the great joys of my life. After we won our first Civilization Championship Cup back in 2007, with a team so small that we could barely participate in two-thirds of the events, I learned that a dedicated group of friends can accomplish the seemingly impossible. Civilization remains the most complicated game in the world, and I am thankful to be part of an organization capable of taking on the challenge. I look forward to continue my contribution to one of the greatest gaming franchises and I wish our opponents the best of luck.”
This new direction for Team Liquid returns the organization to their roots which was built upon the foundations of their co-founders professional Starcraft career. The organization also plans to hold their own professional tournaments in the near future.
