Esports: Team Liquid announce 2022 roster following "shox" signing

Counter Strike: Global Offensive side Team Liquid have announced their roster for the 2022 season with Richard "shox" Papillon having been confirmed as their latest signing.

In the CS:GO WePlay Academy League, meanwhile, Astralis Talent are 11/8 to beat Young Ninjas, who are 8/15 to win.

Team Liquid make changes

Team Liquid have been tweaking their roster after a tumultuous campaign, although the previous group excelled at the BLAST Premier World Final.

They finished fourth in the competition, losing in the lower bracket to Natus Vincere, who went on to take the title.

Since that triumph, Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip, Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince and Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo have all been listed as inactive members of the Team Liquid roster.

But the organization have drafted in former Major winner "shox" as well as impressive AWPer Josh "oSee" Ohm, who has joined from Extra Salt.

They will be hoping "shox" in particular can get the team back on track in 2022 with the iconic player having previously turned out for the likes of G2 Esports and Vitality.

Eric "adreN" Hoag is set to oversee the new-look roster as coach.

Team Liquid will now be looking towards the IEM Katowice, which starts 15th February and will help them set the tone for the rest of the campaign.

Regarding his transfer, "shox" wrote on Twitter: "Hyped to start this new adventure - one of the biggest and most exciting challenges of my life - [I] will do everything needed to make it a success.

"Blessed and proud to play along these guys in such a legendary club as Liquid."
