Team Liquid has signed Netherlands-based Fortnite Pro Mitr0 to their roster.
While other teams like Ghost Gaming and TSM cut ties with their Fortnite talent, Team Liquid added one of the top free agents in the UK to their roster: Dmitri ‘mitr0’ Van de Vrie. Team Liquid signed the pro on January 22, releasing a three-minute welcome video for their new player.
Mitr0 joins the likes of Fiber, Vivid, Chap, and 72hrs on the Team Liquid Fortnite roster.
Team Liquid is an esports organization that sports teams in many different titles, including League of Legends, Rainbow Six: Siege, DOTA 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and many others. With their headquarters located in the Netherlands, it seems fitting that Team Liquid would acquire one of the hottest free agents in competitive Fortnite. Liquid’s announcement fades in with mitr0’s signature Dynamo Fortnite skin draped in a Team Liquid hoodie.

The organization’s official statement gives insight into the thought process behind acquiring mitr0:
“We’re very excited to announce another addition to our Fortnite roster. Many of you will know him for his dominant online performances across 2019, and stellar duos showing at the Fortnite World Cup. We’re pleased to announce that Mitr0 has officially joined Team Liquid.

Team Liquid’s Fortnite Manager, Kory Arruda, offered up a comment of his own on the signing of Mitr0:
“Since Fortnite competitions started, Mitr0 has always been considered one of the best players in the game.
