PUBG Roster Update: Jeemzz, Sambty, and Ibiza join

January 22 2018


After holding open tryouts over the holiday season, we've finalized our lineup for the upcoming Auzom Premier League Season 2 and beyond. Keiron "Scoom" Prescott returns as our team captain, and he will be joined by Jim Gunnar "Jeemzz" Eliassen, Samu "Sambty" Kauppinen, and Jord "Ibiza" van Geldere.

I joined Liquid back in August 2017, and being part of Team Liquid has been amazing. The org is super supportive and encouraging, wanting just the best for the players and pushing us to succeed in this game. I feel extremely excited about the future of this team. With Ibiza, Jeemzz & Sambty joining, we might have one of the strongest rosters on an individual level. The guys were star players from their previous teams which they also had a lot of success with. So I feel super confident that with this roster we are gonna take PUBG by storm.

Keiron "Scoom" Prescott



Jim Gunnar "Jeemzz" Eliassen

Jeemzz is an AK-wielding entry-fragger who has spent time atop the EU leaderboards. He joins us as a brief stint on PENTA, and despite being fairly new to professional gaming, Jeemzz has an outstanding history in the games he has played. He showed immediate promise in PUBG, scoring 8 kills in his very first match. Aggressive yet versatile, the only thing that can stop him is sharks — a fear that causes him to avoid taking a swim, even in-game!

"Really looking forward to joining Team Liquid, and I'm really happy to get the offer to do so. This is a really talented line-up that could become the best PUBG team in the world."





Samu "Sambty" Kauppinen

In the support role, Sambty's calculated play holds the team together. With a knack for competitive gaming that once led him to Challenger ranking in League of Legends, the Finnish pro already touts a successful history in professional PUBG. Most recently, during his time on Tempo Storm, Sambty and his team placed second at IEM Oakland. Despite this success, Sambty wants to achieve even greater things with his new team.

"I am really excited to play for Team Liquid! I think we are going to do well since we have one of the best rosters in the world."





Jord "Ibiza" van Geldere

Formerly of Kinguin, Ibiza is a fragger that balances out Jeemzz' aggression and Sambty's methodical play. The M4 expert has been dedicated to PUBG since early access, and he has made a name for himself as one of Europe's best players since breaking out onto the scene. Make sure to follow him on Twitch as he streams his exploits daily.

"It's a sick opportunity and I feel really strong about the team."





We would like to express our gratitude to Hayz, Molnman and Ollywood for representing Team Liquid in PUBG's debut as an esport. Hayz and Ollywood have found new homes, while Molnman is open to offers.

You can catch our new squad in the Auzom Premier League Season 2 as they face off against the best teams in Europe. Week 1 starts today, so tune in to Auzom's official Twitch channel to cheer on our team. You can also join us on Discord to hang out and talk about everything PUBG.

Dota 2   Race to the Finish Line: Earth Spirit vs Puck There were a lot of wild plays at the Chongqing Major, but none so wacky as GH’s Earth Spirit embarking on The Great Escape during Liquid’s match against Vici Gaming. GH forced Vici to keep chasing him all the way across the map and while Ori eventually caught him, it made us wonder, “Who would win in a race between Puck and Earth Spirit?” We answer that question with maths.

StarCraft 2 | League of Legends | CS:GO | Smash | Street Fighter 4 | Dota 2   Digital Darlings: Love Letters to the Pros For the beloved characters in our games, no one is more attractive than the pros who control their every move over 8 hours a day. And how could they not? This is the ideal male form, this is what peak performance looks like. If only they could speak (or write an email), they’d be able to share all the things they admire about our players. Fortunately, we can speak for them.
Smash   The Ultimate Puff Tier List If Puff is the best character in Smash, then the characters most like Puff are the best in Smash. But how do we figure out a character's Puffhood? We have you covered as we take a needlessly mathematical approach in creating The Ultimate Puff Tier List.
