Team Liquid announced they have signed Protoss player (Wiki)SKillous.

As a Russian national, SKillous was displaced when the Russian invasion of Ukraine began while he was competing at (Wiki)IEM Katowice 2022 in Poland. Since then, Team Liquid had been harboring SKillous at their facility in the Netherlands for nearly a year. During that time, Team Liquid saw that SKillous fit in well with the rest of the team, and have ultimately decided to officially sign him as a player. “He’s a really skilled player in When we thought about it, we thought he would be a great addition to Team Liquid and our continuous investment in StarCraft II.” said Victor “Nazgul” Goossens.

SKillous is also the recipient of the first esports visa issued by the Netherlands, according to Team Liquid.

Congratulations SKillous! Teamliquid has always been a dream time of mine, seems like an amazing fit for him.

Don’t blame the race, blame the a-key.

What a great story and a great pick-up! Gratz and GLHF to all involved!

Now witness their attempts to fly from tree to tree. Notice they do not so much fly as plummet.

Great to see!

I can’t imagine how difficult his situation has been for the past year. Hopefully he’s able to find some personal and professional stability in all this.
