The Liquid Review July 2022
We’ve officially passed the half-way point of the year, and through the record-breaking heat and surging inflation, it can feel nice to stop for a moment, and relax with a tall refreshing glass of video games.
Community and pride: staff spotlight with Sarah
A Team Liquid fan turned Liquid+ staff member, Sarah.GG is one of the many friendly faces that our fans get to interact with on a regular basis. They’re also an out and proud nonbinary person who embodies the phrase “be gay, play games”. We got a chance to sit down with them to discuss Pride month, career journeys, and why World of Warcraft is their favorite game.
Liquid Pride '22: Show your colors
Pride came to a close in June, but that doesn’t mean we stop celebrating.

Liquid Pride '22: A Queer Q&A
Happy Pride! We often hear that "esport is a space for everyone" but given the toxicity, the bad news, and bad actors in the space, it doesn't always feel that way. Rather than tell you that LGBTQ+ can make it in esports, we wanted to show you. This small staff Q&A is a fun reminder that you can be out and proud in the esports world and do great things within it. It's also a reminder that no matter what letter you are in the community, Pride is for you too.

The Rise of the Resilience Meta
Esports is known for burnout - athletes retiring in their mid-20's because they can't keep up. But Coach Bobby and Coach Chung are looking to change all that.

Take notes: How TLH is Learning From EG
After a shocking 0-3 loss to Evil Geniuses in the Losers Finals of the 2022 Spring Playoffs, Team Liquid’s dressing room is predictably quiet. Quiet enough that, through SQUAD’s camera crew, you can hear the sound of the players’ shoes shuffling against the carpet. After a moment, Liquid head coach André "Guilhoto" Pereira Guilhoto ruptures the silence.

Within the bowels of America's foremost sports stadium — where Knicks and Rangers mingle on game days — the rosters of SK Telecom and ROX Tigers prepped for one of the biggest matches of their lives.
