Team Liquid is one of the top tier organizations in esports. Any time a team or player representing them comes into a competitive scene, you know that they are automatically a force to be reckoned with. Not only does Team Liquid sign on great personalities, but they also ensure these players have great skill in whatever game they are competing in. The FIFA community better watch out because Team Liquid has made its move.
Lasse “Kongen” Baekkelund
Lasse “Kongen” Baekkelund is a 21 year old Danish FIFA player. He has been around the competitive FIFA scene since around 2012 and has even won a Danish championship. He plays on the Playstation 4. This year he is on the road to qualifying for the FIFA International World Cup (FIWC).
Over the course of the year players have been dedicating their weekends to playing 40 games and trying to win as many of them as they can in a weekly event called the “Weekend League”. Each week, players earn their placing in their region and in the world. Doing well in these events qualifies you for regional tournaments which get you points towards qualifying for the FIWC.
The grand finals for the FIWC will feature 32 of the world’s best players and is set to take place August 9, 2017 in London. To get there, Lasse has one more major hurdle to pass: the FIWC European Regionals, which will take place this weekend. Lasse will be there as one of the only seeded players in Group A. This will be his first shot to show Team Liquid what he is all about.
