Team Liquid is looking to add three players from three separate European rosters in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, according to a report by Shotcaller.
Keiron “Scoom” Prescott would be the lone remaining player from Liquid’s original PUBG roster, announced last August. Things get interesting with the rest of the roster, as Liquid is reported to be adding Jim “Jeemzz” Eliassen from PENTA Esports, Samu “Sambty” Kauppinen from Tempo Storm, and Jord “Ibiza” van Geldere from Kinguin.
Liquid’s Daniel “Hayz” Heaysman announced in December that he would be stepping down from the team and looking for other offers, so it appears that Liquid is attempting to move forward without him. These changes would also see Oliver “Ollywood” Tell and Björn “Molnman” Jansson looking for new squads as well.
The report says that the players have all agreed to forming the new roster, but all three newcomers are currently under contract with their current organizations. A deal must be made with their existing teams for it to come to fruition.
The potential move would shake up the EU PUBG scene as Kinguin would be left looking for a new fourth, and PENTA looking for two players. Since Tempo Storm currently has five members on the roster, they would still have a full four man squad.
With season two of the Auzom Premier League starting in just a few days, there is some pressure to get deals done—although two roster changes per team are allowed in-season.
