Team Liquid have begun to officially unveil their 2018 roster and it already includes some major changes. The first two announcements the team has made are for team former Immortals players, jungler, Jake “Xmithie” Puchero and Eugene “Pobelter” Park, who each received video announcements via Twitter. The duo had an extremely successful 2017 during their time together on Immortals.

Puchero has long been known as one of North America’s best junglers with an impressive ability to step into almost any situation and fit into any team. This proved especially true when he joined Immortals. After Puchero joined the team before the Summer Split, Immortals finished second in the league and qualified for Worlds after failing to even qualify for the NA LCS Playoffs in the split before he joined the team.
Park has been similarly successful with Immortals throughout his time with the team, including two of the best ever regular season performances and a second place finish and two third place finishes in the NA LCS.

These are only the first two announcements of the off-season for Team Liquid and are likely to be followed by many more from a team that released many of its starters from the 2017 Summer Split. This post will be updated as more announcements are made.
