Team Liquid have announced that Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez will be their fifth player at the upcoming Gfinity Spring Masters II.
The future of the North American team has been up in the air since their disappointing campaign at the FACEIT League Stage 1 finals, where they finished 7th/8th following defeats against fnatic and Immunity.
This week, Team Liquid were seen trying out potential candidates to replace Damian "daps" Steele. Armeen "a2z" Toussi and Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez were both tested in official matches as the team searched for a better alternative with hopes of giving a good account of themselves at the upcoming Gfinity Spring Masters, which will take place from May 15-17, in London.

A decision about who will be Liquid's fifth man in the long run has not yet been made, but it seems that Mendez was the player who impressed the most during the tryouts as he will be travelling to London with the team. Mendez was a free agent after being released by Nihilum last month as the team signed former Cloud9 member Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen.
This means that Team Liquid will attend the Gfinity Spring Masters with:
Eric "adreN" Hoag
Jacob "FugLy" Medina
Nick "nitr0" Cannella
Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski
