North America’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene doesn’t stop bleeding. The region lost one of its best players, the Canadian star Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken. The young star revealed the farewell right after the IEM Global Challenge tournament in which Liquid lost the final against Astralis.
After Twistzz announced his departure, social media posts from both sides, the player and Liquid, have come.
“Gg’s and congrats to Astralis, no other team I’d rather play against in a final and especially my last game with Team Liquid.” Twistzz said. “The fans and family I’ve made here over the past three and a half years. These are some of the most important memories of my career. Thank you all.”
Twistzz had been a part of Team Liquid since 2017. He earned so many championships with Liquid’s jersey during the period and played a big role in 2019 when it was called “Team Liquid era” in CS:GO. The Canadian player showed his talents in 891 maps for the NA organization, won 10 trophies and 17 second places alongside two MVP awards. He parted ways with his former team with approximately a 1.14 rating throughout three years.
Victor Goossens, Team Liquid’s Co-CEO and founder, sent out an emotional tweet for Twistzz farewell:
“It’s been 3.5 great years together. I’ve loved seeing you grow over the years and I am so proud of how far you have come,” Goossens said. “I’m going to miss having you around and will forever treasure the memories that we created. Thank you for everything.”
The young star’s next stop isn’t clear yet, however, he implied he might head to Europe by saying, “I hope I bring the NA support wherever I go in EU.”
