Team Liquid: How It Became Huge

The eSports industry is still rather young, even by new tech-driven sectors of the modern age, and yet, its market has already breached the $1 billion mark. Set to continue to grow tremendously over the coming years, several new organizations and some traditional sports teams are looking to get in on the gaming action.

Now, the eSports leagues and competitions for each competitive game span a huge range of teams from around the globe, all competing for chunks of prize pools that range from sizeable to multi-million. Still, a mainstay name in the eSports scene as it’s grown to reach these unprecedented heights is that of Team Liquid.

Not just a long-standing brand, Team Liquid has made the right moves at the right times, signed on top-class talents, won major titles, and developed such a devout fan base that they have helped the eSports industry to grow rapidly as a result. Having exploited every possible avenue of competition in ways that most traditional sports teams simply don’t, Team Liquid has earned multi-discipline recognition and is now a colossus.

Yet, as eSports is still relatively niche when it comes to general public knowledge, many don’t know much – if anything – about Team Liquid. Here’s how they became huge, who you may liken them to in traditional sports, and the triumphs that have led to Team Liquid’s endearing popularity and backing.

The rise of Team Liquid as an eSports superpower

As detailed by the team, they come from humble beginnings in the form of a clan forged by Victor “Nazgul” Goossens in the game Brood War in 2000. In 2001, the team created a community site, which would prove to be a platform for viewers and potential competitors alike, developing into a hub for StarCraft. Here, Nazgul and Co. staged tournaments and encouraged the community to grow around Team Liquid.

The next big step came with the release of the StarCraft II beta towards the end of that decade. Team Liquid went all-in, creating tournaments and attracting the attention of top-class players, leading to them being granted passage to the Korean SC2 scene – the first overseas team to do so. Success in the Korea Republic followed, as did an all-important heated rivalry with Evil Geniuses, which captivated fans and players alike.

StarCraft was Team Liquid’s forte, the game that made the team and their fame, but “Nazgul” wanted to expand further. So, towards the end of 2012, he launched a Dota 2 team in North America, making Team Liquid a two-discipline eSports organization. Later, to kick off 2015, Team Liquid assimilated the popular League of Legends and Counter-Strike organization Team Curse, further expanding its reach.

With the coming together of Liquid and Curse, an unprecedented era of success ensued. Competing across the board in League of Legends, Dota 2, Street Fighter V, StarCraft II, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the silverware and prize money started raining down from 2015 onwards. Now, they boast a social media reach of over 28 million people and over 100 million hours of views on Twitch.

Making the most of the eSports scene to become the biggest team going

In traditional sports, teams tend to stick to their lane. For example, the Detroit Red Wings, whose star center Dylan Larkin is a top target as a brand’s athlete partner, are a hockey team, and that’s it. Given their revenues, name recognition, and success in the sports business, the Red Wings certainly have what it takes to expand the brand into other sports, but they haven’t done.

Team Liquid, on the other hand, has taken part in tournaments for 26 different games, including Counter-Strike, Dota 2, Hearthstone, Valorant, Rocket League, and Tekken 7 – all of which differ tremendously. This approach is somewhat more similar to that of college sports, with even the top college football teams competing at their highest level just being part of the university program of the Florida Gators, for example.

Still, to offer a comparison to a traditional sports team, Team Liquid is akin to Manchester United, loosely speaking. Team Liquid’s sheer dominance through the years is like that of the legendary teams captured in art under Sir Alex Ferguson. Still, with increased competition and becoming the team to beat, they’re not as guaranteed to win tournaments anymore, but still rank as the most successful team of all time, with United boasting 20 English league titles and Team Liquid having the highest overall team earnings at $37.6 million. 

It’s the legendary name with the best players, its dominance, and the continual threat that continues to draw fans to Team Liquid, though. While United has stopped winning the few trophies on the line, Team Liquid’s stars continue to add to the trophy cabinet. This is why, across the disciplines, the team continues to be backed in the betting. They’ve always got top-class players who can compete at the highest level and even cause upsets. So, regardless if it’s betting on CS: GO, LoL, Dota 2, Valorant, or Rainbow Six, if Team Liquid is there, fans will pile on the odds.

The legacy of the team and this entrenched and unwavering belief in their ability to go big is well earned. In 2017, they won the richest competition in eSports, The International, taking home $10 million from the $24.7 million prize pool. More recently, in 2019, Team Liquid landed a further $5 million in Dota 2. That year also reeled in $2.4 million in CS: GO, which amounted to nearly 50 percent of the prize money that was on offer across their 32 entries. This year has also started hot in LoL, placing first, second, and second in LCS contests.

Team Liquid is still the biggest name in eSports, and as long as they continue to acquire top-class talents from around the world, they’ll remain a top pick for fans.

I’m already playing Candy Crush Saga on the road all the time, so when I’m not spiking footballs, I’m swiping candies. Now, I’m inviting everyone to show up and compete with me. Let’s crown the best Crusher there ever was, America. Let’s go!”

“I’m so excited to be taking part in America’s first Candy Crush All Stars tournament!” said Doja Cat. “Anyone can compete and come out on top. But the real question is … who will be able to beat me and be crowned America’s No.1 Crusher?! Join now!”

How to Stay Safe Gaming Online

Online gaming should be a fun and rewarding experience that, critically, does not have any lasting impact. Staying safe online is vital, especially when gaming, as it is all too easy for a fun and innocent activity to become malicious when the right steps have not been taken. That does not mean to say that gaming online is a dangerous activity. In fact, when you take the right steps, online gaming can be just as safe as playing in person with friends.

Use a VPN

A Virtual Private Network, otherwise known simply as a VPN, is a great measure that everyone should use while gaming online. When you connect to a VPN, you connect to an encrypted server, which means that it becomes a lot more difficult for cybercriminals to track your movements. Not only does a VPN allow you to play anonymously, but it also hides your IP address, which makes you even more difficult to track.

Only Play on Trusted Sites

Before you begin playing online, it is important that you check to see that a site is trustworthy. There are many ways that you can check to see how trustworthy an online gaming site is; you could:

  • Check player reviews – looking at reviews of a gaming site, particularly the negative reviews, should help you learn if the site is unsafe. Make sure to check reviews at a respectable website.
  • Check for the right icons; some sites, like gambling sites, should be regulated by a range of international organizations. You should check to see if the site features the icons of the gaming authorities before playing.
  • Do your research; simply just reading up on the best gaming sites to use can help you to find the best, safe sites. Rather than doing the research yourself, you can easily compare the sites in one place and get playing a lot faster, safe in the knowledge that you are using a trusted site. Click here to compare. 

Keep Your Personal Information Private

Of course, sometimes, when you are buying an online game or signing up, you will have to input your personal details (only after checking the site is safe), but in other situations, you should keep your information private. For example, if you are playing an online multiplayer game, you should avoid using or giving out any personal information, including your name or location. Even if a player seems to be a friend of yours, you should never exchange personal information.

It is also vital that you use an appropriate username that does not give too much of your personal information out. You should also make sure to have a different password for every online gaming site that you use.

Install Anti-Virus Software

If you have taken the previous steps, then you can be pretty confident that you will be safe while playing online, but it is always better to be safe and sorry. You should install anti-virus software on your device to give you that extra layer of added security.

If you are playing games on a free site, it is common for these sites to use adverts, some of which might host more harmful, malicious software. You should be using a VPN and anti-virus software at all times to make sure you are staying safe online, whether you are playing a game or reading Wikipedia.

Whether you set up your own at a local park, or head to an existing course, you’re in for a tiring day. Whoever reaches the end in the shortest amount of time (without cheating) is the winner. You could even make a crown and buy a personalized medal.

Beginners Guide to Playing Slots Online

Slots are perhaps the most popular online casino game available today. Every good online casino will have a wide range of slots, covering many themes. It is the variety of choice that makes slots such as pleasure to play. Despite being relatively straight forward to play in comparison to other online casino games, as a beginner there are some things you must be aware of before playing.

When playing slots online using real money, you want to get the best value possible. You can so by taking advantage of special promotions. Free spins with no deposit are one of the leading online bonuses available for online slots. As the name suggests, free spins with no deposit does not require any money to be added to your online casino account. Instead, the casino will give you the specified number of free spins without having to pay any of your own money. You can find a great selection of free spins with no deposit bonus offers on gamble-usa’s website. We recommend you check them out before playing slots.

When playing online slots for the first time, it is important to understand the different terms. Reels are located in the middle section of the slot, and spin when you play a slot game. They are always an odd number–usually either three, five, seven, or nine. Reels will have different symbols on them, and you must know what each of these symbols mean before you begin playing a slot game. This is information you will have to discover for yourself by reading the information about the individual slot before you begin playing. You should never play an online slot game without knowing what each of the symbols on the reels means, because you need the information to know when to hold reels to win.

Paylines are rows that go across the slot from left to right. The more paylines there are on a slot, the better your chances are of winning money. Winning paylines are often in a straight line across the screen, but as online slots have become more exotic, paylines have fluctuated across the reels. You should always have access to a payout table when playing an online slot game and analyze it so you know which combinations of symbols payout the biggest amounts of money.

Always track how much money you are spending when playing online slots. Funds can quickly diminish, so its a good idea to have a budget in mind before you begin playing. Always choose a slot you like, rather than the one that has the biggest jackpot, and play for fun. There are no guaranteed winnings when playing online slots. Remember, they are a form of entertainment, not a way to make money.

Health Benefits of Online Gaming

Online gaming has long had a stigma that it’s only suitable for lazy people who don’t want to do their household chores or interact with the outside world. This stigma has been blown away by recent studies that suggest online gaming has a lot of benefits for your development. Let’s have a look at some of these benefits.

Risk-Management Skills Via Sports-Betting

Sports betting is something that will not suit the faint-hearted. You need to have an eye for sports betting by utilizing certain strategies to enhance the probability of winning. You will develop skills in stress management and risk management because you will need to ensure that the risk you’re taking is worth the possible outcomes.

A big part of risk management is to make sure that you are willing to lose the money you bet. You will have to summarize the player’s past performances and make more accurate predictions as history truly does repeat itself now and again. An example of the latest sports betting is Euro 2020 betting where people can bet on the teams and players in the tournament.

Social Skills Via RPG’s

Being lonely can have a dramatic effect on your health, there are many diseases where loneliness is a direct symptom like depression, dementia, and heart problems. Online games can improve the amount of communication you have with others. There are many role-playing games (also called RPG’s) where you will have to communicate with a stranger on the other side of the planet to engage in actions and thoughts for example. Some people have even made lasting friendships through online gaming.

Memory Games on Mobile Phones

Dementia is not just a disease for old people. Some 10% of dementia sufferers are under the age of 65. A study came out back in 2017 that gaming could decrease your risk of getting dementia by up to 27%. I don’t know about you, but I certainly like the odds. You can play any game where you need to recall certain information to complete your action.

There are a lot of mobile games that are customized just for this reason like brain training, puzzle games, and even old classics like Sudoku. Just search for brain improvement games on your Play Store, whether you have an iPhone or an Android and there will be thousands of results ready for you.

Conclusion

Online games can have great health benefits for your brain including a decreased risk of developing dementia, maintaining or developing your motor skills and spatial awareness, and decreasing the possibility of loneliness. You can also train yourself in risk management by playing more edgy betting games like the above-mentioned sports betting.

Everybody has different likes and dislikes and therefore it’s essential to find a type of game that you would enjoy by doing some of your own research. Some people like to play games with a storyline whilst others are more analytical and will enjoy anything with numbers. No matter the skill you’d like to improve there are loads of different gaming options out there for you.

Vintage Colors – Outfit Your Website in Modern Retro

The phrase ‘modern retro’ might sound like an oxymoron but it’s just an easy way of describing something that has crept its way back into fashion, even if it died in ignominy many decades ago. It’s the kind of trend that causes coffee shops to blend pop art with vintage furnishings or hospital green appliances with white subway tiles. It’s a collision, in other words, often of two or more disparate design decades.

While it’s easy to expect this kind of trend to crop up in interior design circles, websites began experimenting with modern retro around the same time that millennials started to forget about the days they spent living in the 80s and 90s; that is, about five years ago. The difficulty inherent in this style of work is melding classic colors and imagery without compromising the usability of the website.

70s, 80s, and 90s

But what did these decades look like? The 90s were bright, chaotic, and kitschy, encapsulated by the ‘jazz’ cup design created by Gina Ekiss. The previous decade, the 80s, was more about neons, burnished metals, and pinks and blues. Lastly, the 70s liked its oranges and browns and large repeating patterns. Oddly enough, our experiments with decade-spanning trends seemed to end around the turn of the millennium.

However, one of the design fascinations that never seems to go away involves space, futurism, and technology. For instance, the website of AI-based energy company Nesh has domed habitats flanking its namesake smart assistant, while Genesis Casino features astronauts, planets, and satellites. The latter is one of the more technology-forward sites too; it’s a paysafecard online casino and accepts Apple Pay. This shows the broad adoption of this style.

Contributors to website awards site Awwwards point to the Soviet Design page as a good example of 90s stylings. One of the best places to look for website inspiration with 80s leanings, though, is not a website at all. Artistic movements like vaporwave and future funk have the Blade Runner decade pinned down to its most basic elements. Large and loud typefaces are the key to creating a site with a convincing 70s vibe.

Simplicity

An important point to remember is that the further back in time you plan to go, the less complicated your design needs to be. Marketing materials made in the 70s, for instance, are unlikely to have been in a digital format, which restricts their complexity to whatever a printing press could handle at the time. The reverse, an overabundance of options, is perhaps why the 90s were so chaotic.

Ironically, one of the few design schemes to hit the mainstream in the 2010s was simple almost to a fault. Flat design, which was arguably pioneered by Microsoft in its Windows 8 operating system, stripped the outlines and details away and replaced them with ‘flat’ colors. This style often makes use of long shadows and has been central to the design philosophy of Google and Apple too.

Modern retro allows companies to leverage nostalgia and a love for all things vintage to capture customers’ collective hearts.

5 strategies for online casinos 

Are you looking for strategies to win at online casinos? It’s not as easy as it sounds. There are many different strategies that can be used and the right one will depend on your personal style and what kind of games you prefer to play. We’ll go over 5 strategies below, followed by a quick summary of each one. 

Casinos have been always been a hot topic. People love to gamble and there are so many different ways they can do it. Some people prefer to go out and visit casinos while others like to stay at home or on their mobile devices. The latter has become increasing popular in the recent years, so much so that now there are online games available for anyone who wants to play them. 

For new casino players is can be difficult or confusing to make sense of the games and it can be hard to understand what to do to make more money when playing. If you are looking to make some money while gambling, or at very least not lose too much of it, here are 5 strategies for online casinos. 

Understand the bonuses

A welcome bonus is essentially a way that the casino tries to draw the attention of new players by allowing them to play various games for free for a few round or giving them some free money to bet on a game of their choosing. 

Welcomes bonuses are a fantastic way to test out a casino and see what games they have and what gems you like, all without spending any money. This makes choosing an online casino extremely important, which is why Casino Reviews recommends Jackpotcity, as they have some of the best bonuses and many games to choose from. There are two different kinds of bonuses; depots and no-depots bonuses, and they are exactly what they sound like. A deposit bonus requires you to deposit a certain amount into your account before you can qualify to receive the bonus where as a no deposit bonus doesn’t require anything. 

Of course all of this has to come with a catch, this being the wagering requirements that you have to fulfil within a certain amount of time before you can reviewed you winnings from the bonus. 

Choose the right games

The games are the main reason why people are at online casinos, obviously. When it comes to casino games, some of them give you better odds of winning than others, and these are the games you should be sticking to if you are wanting to make a little bit of money. Games like slots are fun to play but most of the time you will never make any money from them because there is no skill or strategy involved. However, table’s games do require skill and strategy which you can learn and practice allowing you to understand the game and predicts the outcomes. 

Have a budget

Having a budget is so important because it is so easy to lose track of time and get so into a game and end up spending way more than you had thought you might. If you set a budget you will know exactly when to call it quits and you will never end up in any kind of trouble. You could set a budget that could purely be based off of how much money you spend and then once you have spent that money you have to stop playing, or you could give yourself a set budget which allows you to play with your winnings too. This will let you play for a bit longer but will most likely leave you with no winnings at all. 

Play slow and take breaks

Following on from the previous point, gambling at online casinos can happen very quickly with being able to play multiple games at once, and slots allowing you to play up to 600 spins per hour. These costs can rack up quickly. It is important to remember that gambling is an addictive hobby and by playing slowly and taking breaks often you allow yourself to come back to the real world and just gain your sense of reality again so that you don’t end up spending all of your money. 

Play at the right casino

Before you even start playing at a casino you need to know what kind of reputation the casino has and what kind of licensing it has. With so many different online casinos out there now, it’s no surprise that some of them are fraudulent. By choosing the casinos with the best reviews and ratings, and ones that also have the right licensing, you also give yourself the best shot at playing at one of the better online casinos.
