And, with the new DPC season on the horizon, it seems an announcement is close.
SumaiL and Quincy Crew?
One of the strongest theories among Dota 2 fans is that Team Liquid's new roster will be Quincy Crew, featuring former Evil Geniuses star SumaiL.
Superstar midlaner SumaiL has been set to play alongside his brother YawaR and staple NA names like CCnC, MSS and SVG, for the upcoming DPC season, and manager KBBQ tweeted on September 28th to say he was "expecting org situation to be fully settled soon".
Liquid as an organization is no stranger to the NA scene, being the base of operations for many of its renowned lineups in other titles (CS:GO and LoL to name a few), and the fact that Liquid began its first footstep into Dota 2 as an NA team in 2013 would mean that picking up this lineup would bring things back to a full circle. And with one of the most promising NA lineups entering the DPC this season as a free agent, this could be the closest thing Liquid can grab to carry on their previous lineup's amazing legacy.

So, if that's the case, Liquid's new Dota team will look like this:
- Syed "SumaiL" Sumail Hassan
- Quinn "CCnC" Callahan
- Syed "YawaR" Yawar Hassan
- Arif "MSS" Anwar
- Avery "SVG" Silverman
Manager: Jack "KBBQ" Chen
