Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

Yesterday it was announced that Mickey has joined Team Liquid. People have pointed out that this in no way solves any of the problems that the current Liquid roster has and that Liquid is searching for some level of base consistency. It’s hard to tell exactly what is going on in the Liquid camp beyond people trying to put out fires with vast swaths of cash. What I will say is that the choice makes sense if you assume both of these two points. First is that at this point that Liquid have either given up or do not know how to add any consistent factors into the team. Secondly, if Liquid assume that the consistent players they could have picked up would not have saved them, in this case it is likely the better option to go for the extreme high variance pickup that is Mickey.
