Team Liquid has removed Nitr0 from its CS:GO roster
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro Nicholas 'Nitr0' Cannella has been removed from Team Liquid's roster. After five years of playing for the esports team, Nitr0 is stepping aside as TL replaces him with newcomer Michael 'Grim' Wince.
Grim comes from playing for Triumph, and it has been confirmed by Rush B Media that he has been bought by the esports giant Team Liquid (via DBLTAP). The 19-year-old has an impressive rating at 1.31 spread over 134 maps for the year and could certainly improve TL's standings when he plays for them at Dreamhack.
TL has been struggling with its performance on the CS:GO scene recently, so changes to the team were inevitable. Some, however will be surprised to hear that it is Nitr0 that is being cut from the roster as he is considered a veteran of the team and game, after joining TL back in 2015. He has not commented except a short tweet saying: "Until next time, friends".
