KarlTzy living his dream in Team Liquid’s colors

Team Liquid’s acquisition of the MPL Philippines franchise ECHO felt like a dream come true for Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno, who used to idolize the team’s DOTA 2 superstars.

“Natutuwa lang ako na same org na kami ng mga dating idol ko sa DOTA. Team Liquid na rin ako,” KarlTzy told Tiebreaker Times in an exclusive interview.

He singled out Jordanian-Polish player Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi, who was Team Liquid’s midlaner from 2016 to 2019, as the player who mesmerized him when he was playing DOTA 2.

“Pag naglalaro kasi ako ng DOTA dati kasama yung friends ko, mid din yung nilalaro ko. Dati kasi mid din si Miracle tapos sobrang galing niya sa mga mechanical na hero like si Invoker. Kaya talagang idol ko siya,” shared the young goat.

He added that he also looks up to the team’s current midlaner, Michał “Nisha” Jankowski. “Si Nisha kasi yung mechanical skills niya sobrang taas. Parang same sila ni Miracle kaya naging idol ko rin siya sa Liquid.”

Now finally leading the way for Team Liquid’s MLBB squad, KarlTzy reveals he doesn’t feel any pressure in representing the organization’s name known for winning championships in major tournaments like The International 2017 and the China Dota2 Supermajor in 2018.

“Siguro po sa mga teammates ko, medyo nakaramdam sila ng pressure. Ako po talaga, wala na akong nararamdaman na pressure kasi kahit anong mangyari parang okay na ko sa mga nakuha ko sa scene,” he said.

“Sobrang saya ko lang rin na namotivate lalo yung mga teammates ko. Hindi sila na-pressure sobra sa sinabi ng Team Liquid management sa amin.”
