Welcome TF Blade
June 11 2018
We are pleased to announce the addition of Ashkan “TFBlade” Homayouni to the Team Liquid stream team!
TFBlade has all the ingredients of a die hard solo queue stream monster: he mains an aggressive rage inducing champion, he’s a top laner, and his young yet thriving fanbase tunes in for all the ups and downs of the North American Ladder. Where the Akali master sets himself apart, however, is in his ceaseless ascent of the rankings. Earlier this year, TFBlade found himself on top of the region twofold with accounts at Rank 1 and 2.
"Ever since I played this game I always had this dream of becoming the best player at it. And so recently I finally got to become the rank one player in the North American servers, however, this is not enough for me."

At just 18 years old, TFBlade has a bright future ahead of him filled with LP gains and Akali mastery points. Beyond his merits alone, he’s received the seal of approval from fellow Liquid streamers such as Midbeast and IWillDominate.
After proving his worth in North America, the TCS champion looks to stake his claim on other regions across the globe. In January, he brought a level 1 account to masters in a matter of days with a 92% winrate in North America — we’re thrilled to see him try to beat that metric under the Team Liquid banner.
