After the dramatic exit of their Captain, Team Liquid has had a flurry of dismal performances. However, the team seems to have found its rhythm and a new player to replace Fluffnstuff.
Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho has been inducted among the ranks of Team Liquid’s Dota 2 division. After appearing as a Stand-in for different teams (including Team Liquid) and recently playing as an active member of Team DoG, the ex-EG player will now be a full time player for Team Liquid.

I would like to thank Team Liquid for giving me this opportunity to play under such a prestigious organization. This team has been in a slump for the past few months now and I hope I’ll be able to lift their spirits high and rebuild the confidence they need as a team. BuLba and myself go way back and have lots of chemistry together and I want to build that same relationship within the whole team. It’s going to take a lot of #hardwork and #dedication but I know in the long run it’ll all be worth it. “Suffer the PAIN of Discipline, or Suffer the PAIN of Regret” #LiquidRising
After his stint in Korea with team MVP whom he helped win the NSL Season 2, DeMoN is known to add great value to any team he joins. Here’s what one of the key Team Liquid players had to say about DeMoN:
Sam “BuLba” Sosale
Demon joining our team will be a great aid to both our play and our teams atmosphere. He has done a great job standing in for us the past few weeks and his playstyle has brought out a lot of #aggression I felt we lacked the past few months. I hope to prove ourselves as a team in the upcoming months and show that we have what it takes to contend among the top.
Whether this addition will uplift the spirits of Team Liquid remains to be seen. It also needs to be noted that DeMoN has not been in a stable roster ever since his departure from Evil Geniuses. While the chances of the current roster seem quite slim at bagging a direct invite for The International 4, it goes without saying that the new line-up seems to be way more cohesive on paper.
