According to sources close to VLR.gg and Upcomer, Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom is expected to join Team Liquid Team Liquid Europe Rank #2 . He should take the place of James "Kryptix" Affleck in the active roster.
Formed at the game's start as fish123 fish123 Inactive , the predominantly English team made a name for itself in Europe before signing to Team Liquid with ScreaM in early August. However, the lineup failed to win any major competitions under its new banner, despite finishing second at the Red Bull Home Ground behind G2 Esports G2 Esports Europe Rank #7 . The roster underwent its first change during VCT Stage 1, with the benching of ec1s and signing of Jamppi.
This would mark the third move for Team Liquid with the arrival of Nivera, who is currently on the bench of Team Vitality in CS:GO. He is expected to join his brother ScreaM and take Kryptix's place in the active lineup. The role of the English player seems to be undetermined between the bench and sixth man. neL had previously expressed Nivera's wish to move to Valorant a few months ago.
Team Liquid will participate in the EMEA LCQ in an attempt to claim one of the last spots for the Champions Stage.
