Things have not been going Team Liquid's way for the majority of 2017. The team is yet to post any impressive results since the addition of former OpTic Gaming in-game leader Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz.
Recently, the team underwent its second roster move of the year, as former Misfits rifler Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken was brought on the 14th of March in an effort to turn the team's performances around. While Van Dulken has been competing with the roster in the ongoing season of ESL Pro League, where the team is currently sitting in fourth place in the standings, he is yet to compete with the team at a LAN event.

Tonight, however, we will see Van Dulken's LAN debut with Team Liquid at the cs_summit. Facing up against Swedish fan favorites Ninjas in Pyjamas, who have also been struggling in 2017, it's safe to say that Team Liquid are entering the event with a lot to prove.
The cs_summit will be starting tonight at 18:30 CEST, with SK Gaming taking on EnVyUs. The confrontation between Ninjas in Pyjamas and Team Liquid will be taking place at 03:30 CEST.
