Last Sunday TI7 champions Team Liquid lifted the trophy of the StarLadder i-League Invitational Season 4 Minor. It looks like the team has developed a habit of becoming the champion - for the past three seasons of the StarLadder iLeague Invitational, no one was able to snatch the title from them. But does that really make Team Liquid an unstoppable force?
Team Liquid Post-TI journey
Since the post-TI shuffle, Team Liquid has been performing exceptionally well. However, some rivals such as Team Secret and Newbee read their strategy really well. Both teams were able to take down Team Liquid in the grand finals of DreamLeague season 8 and ESL One Genting, respectively. However, just after the tournament, Liquid bounced back and won StarLadder iLeague Season 4 Invitational Minor. Right now, Team Liquid has one of the strongest squads in the world. Their willingness to sacrifice for the team is what makes them one of the powerhouses of competitive Dota 2.
Miracle- the playmaker
How can we not talk about the stud, Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi, who has achieved so much after joining Team Liquid. His presence in the mid-lane makes a comfortable position for the rest of the team. Along with Miracle-, Maroun "GH" Merhej and Kuro "KuroKy" Salehi Takhasomi are always there to support him.
On top of that, the chemistry between the players is something you don’t get to see in every team. If KuroKy and his boys continue to perform like this, then surely there will be no team in the world to stop them.
