    The new team is Netherlands Team Liquid whom was without a player for a month by now. The new player came just in time for them to practice for USA The International 5.

    Team manager, Netherlands Nazgul stated:

    "DeMoN is someone who can motivate others and kick it into the next gear when it is needed, and with that he is a more than welcome addition to this team. If roughly a month or so ago you would have told me this were to happen I would not have believed you. Today, it makes a lot of sense. Welcome Liquid`DeMoN!"

    USA DeMon stated:

    "I would like to thank Team Liquid for giving me this opportunity to play under such a prestigious organization. This team has been in a slump for the past few months now and I hope I'll be able to lift their spirits high and rebuild the confidence they need as a team. BuLba and myself go way back and have lots of chemistry together and I want to build that same relationship within the whole team."

    The new USACanadaGermany Team Liquid line-up has:

  • Canada Tyler 'TC' Cook (C)
  • Canada Peter 'Waytosexy' Nguyen
  • USA Sam 'BuLba' Sosale
  • USA Jimmy 'DeMon' Ho
  • Germany Max 'qojqva' Broecker

    The five players all went separate wasy, two went for Sweden Darkdrapare: Sweden Jesper 'Frigoleet' Gothe and Sweden Staffan 'SteffStyle' Solin another went for Sweden House of GamersSwedenJoakim 'M4lem' Andersson while the last two are for the time being on a "free agent' status: Sweden Felix 'Floxplox' Stromqvist and Sweden Julius 'cYso' Aberg.

    I have reviewed a pretty big number of mechanical keyboards and a big surprise for me that none of them have dedicated media keys. I know that all desired keys and shortcuts could be assigned to macro-keys or could be used via FN-keys, but come on, it’s very complicated to press several keys just for “pause” or “play next track” during the gaming or streaming sessions. It’s clear if we are talking about compact gaming keyboards, but why is that difficult to add dedicated media keys to the full size keyboard?

    I started researching and found only a few mechanical keyboards with dedicated media-keys, and one of them is MEKA G-Unit Illuminated from Tt eSPORTS. I was fortunate enough that the gaming division of Thermaltake have agreed to provide me one for review.
