This Liquid squad will have a lot to prove following the loss of Epitaco "TACO" de Melo and Wilton "zews" Prado to MIBR. With the new additions of Jake "Stewie2K" Yip and Eric "adreN" Hoag, Liquid will be keen to show they can match the same consistent level they had throughout 2018 that allowed them to be a top contender.
Here is the final team list for the iBP Masters:
The event in California will run with two GSL groups and a four-team single elimination playoff over the course of two days. It also features a sizeable $200,000 prize pool up for grabs.
With the final invite revealed, the event now features four of HLTV's top ten teams and will be showcase of sorts for compLexity, Liquid, FaZe, and Cloud9 who will all want to show off their new squads before the IEM Katowice Major in February.
