Will Team Liquid Bjergsen’s super team succeed in 2022?

Nicholas James • November 24, 20:29

Team Liquid is rebuilding yet another potential super team this offseason, signing high profile talents in Gabriel “Bwipo” Rau, Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg, and Steven “Hans Sama” Liv. These three players seriously boost the potential of Team Liquid’s roster, and expectations are incredibly high for this roster in 2022.

All of the players on Team Liquid have some serious legacies to live up to, from Hans Sama’s famous performance at Worlds to Bjergsen’s domestic dominance. While the floor feels incredibly high for this team, their actual level of play will have to be measured in the LCS Lock-In and the spring split.

What is Team Liquid’s roster?

Team Liquid recently announced Bjergsen’s arrival, confirming offseason rumors of the Danish mid laner’s return to pro play and his departure from his long-time organization, TSM.

Bjergsen’s announcement follows the promotional video leaking on Youtube yesterday and tops off the team’s signings following Bwipo and Hans Sama’s official announcements. This roster, alongside Lucas “Santorin” Larsen, and Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in as the remaining players from last year, has rapidly become many fans’ picks for the strongest team in the league.

Considering Luka “Perkz” Perkovic’s departure from Cloud9, the biggest competition seems to be 100 Thieves as defending champions.

Bwipo and Hans Sama have no less to live up to, with both coming off of disappointing years following strong regular split performances. Both teams bombed out of Worlds without passing the group stage, so transitioning to North America, generally seen as a weaker region means all eyes are on these new imports to the LCS.

Team Liquid’s rebuild with Bjergsen is reminiscent of their upgrade once franchising arrived, pulling together a murderer’s row of talent to contest for the trophy at any cost.

This team has every reason to be one of the top two teams in North America, but anything less could feel like a disappointment considering the astronomical potential of this roster. The possible level of this team is incredibly high, but so is the pressure. Fans can look forwards to the LCS resuming in January to watch Team Liquid compete.
