Goldenglue has been part of the Team Liquid organization since joining their challenger roster back in May of 2016. Before joining Team Liquid, Goldenglue was fluctuating in and out of LCS/CS teams, most notably becoming the starting mid laner for the NA LCS team Team 8 for a short duration during the summer of season of 2015.
This news also reveals that Kim “FeniX” Jae-hun will no longer be Team Liquid’s starting mid laner. It is unconfirmed if FeniX will continue to be part of the Team Liquid organization.
Aside from the addition of Goldenglue to the main roster, this vlog also revealed that Samson “Lourlo” Jackson and Matthew “Matt” Elento will continue to play on Team Liquid’s main roster for the 2017 season. Team Liquid did not reveal their jungler and AD carry in this video, leaving their roster rumors still unconfirmed.
