Team Liquid game coordinator Jake Stewie2k Yip spoke about replacing a coach in the CS: GO roster. According to the American, the team needed a “bad guy” who would not be afraid to point out mistakes to cybersportsmen. Yip spoke about this in an interview after his debut match at ESL One Cologne 2020.
“One of the main reasons we took moses is because adreN was mostly a strategic coach, and we felt that we didn’t really need one. We needed a person who would not be afraid to express everything to the players, so that we were responsible for our actions, a kind of “bad guy”.
I tried to figure out what would benefit us the most, what kind of coach we need. I think moses fits because he really cares about the North American teams, he’s an adult and knows what he’s talking about. “
On August 9th, 33-year-old Jason moses O’Toole took over as Liquid’s coaching post. In 2003-2014. he performed on the professional Counter-Strike stage and then went on to work in an analytics studio and cover tournaments.
In the first game at ESL One Cologne 2020, Liquid defeated Cloud9 2: 1.
