Dardoch parts ways with Liquid

Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett has officially left Team Liquid.

Liquid made the announcement on their official Twitter account, wishing the best in his future endeavors.

Dardoch was thought to be leaving Liquid earlier in the season when he was benched before Liquid’s games in the North American regional gauntlet, but a potential move to Echo Fox was nullified. The move also comes hours after an ESPN report that Kim “Reignover” Ui-Jin is signing with Liquid as jungler — which is also Dardoch’s position.

Dardoch burst onto the scene in the spring split after playing for Team Liquid Academy. He was the Rookie of the Split in the spring, but problems arose between splits during the team’s trip to South Korea to bootcamp.

Many of Liquid’s issues were revealed at length during the near two-hour documentary “Breaking Point,” which was released earlier this month.

Liquid finished fourth in the spring split and fifth in the summer split of the League of Legends Championship Series.

Despite his fiery reputation, Dardoch will surely be one of the more sought-after North American players because of his pure jungling talent.
