The final Tournament
As the last tournament of 2020 for CSGO came to its conclusion, Team Liquid faced a defeat against Team Astralis. The team’s rifler, Twistzz announced that it was his last match with Team Liquid, in an interview. As the interview ended, the professional asked for a moment to thank the fans. Twistzz has played a vital role in multiple victories against a world-class team like Astralis. The professional eventually announced that he will stay in Europe for the search of another ‘family-like-team’.
Twistzz with Liquid
Twistzz joined Team Liquid in 2014 after gripping his best skills with Misfits. Team Liquid picked up Twistzz at that time as the organization was in the search of young talent. Twistzz faced trouble in his early matches with Team Liquid to adjust to facing top-tier CSGO teams. However, the professional came out as one of the biggest names in CSGO. Team Liquid had Twistzz on its roster when the team won the Intel Grand Slam in a record-breaking 63 days. The team also secured the $1,000,000 prize pool after winning this tournament, earning popularity with the sportsbook crowd.
Team Liquid’s Announcement
Team Liquid has still not announced anything about Twistzz’s departure. However, the professional has already made it clear and announced it by himself. According to his announcement, it looks like the matter has already been discussed with the organization and teammates. As Twistzz leaves Liquid behind, the team is going to suffer big time. Team Liquid and all other CSGO teams move into the 2021 CSGO session, where the game is expected to shift to LAN base once again. Moreover, the team recently picked Michael ‘grim’ Wince and yet proves once again for picking up the young talent in the squad.
It is still unclear whether Twistzz is a free bird or not. There are chances that Liquid still holds him under the contract and Twistzz had to wait until Liquid agrees to a transfer. On the other hand, if the professional is already a free bird, there are not going to be so many days when we witness this. There are very few professionals in CSGO who can match the pure skill with Twistzz. Therefore, the professional will soon find a new home in Europe.
@Twistzz You were part and a key for the most successful NA team to ever touch this game.
Wish you nothing but the best buddy. Best of luck wherever you go. You are a legend for NA.

Similarly, the professional will keep on playing CSGO and would not take any kind of break. As the professional leaves Team Liquid, the future of the team is still uncertain. One way or another, it seems like the team and Twistzz are on good grounds. Let’s see what Liquid finds for replacing one of the strongest players in the game.
