Team Liquid have signed Keith "NAF" Markovic, and are parting ways with Joshua "jdm64" Marzano.

NAF has previously played for Team Liquid, and was signed to their CS:GO roster from January to March 2015. Since then, he's played for eLevated, OpTic Gaming and most recently, Renegades.

NAF signed with Renegades in September, and helped the team place first at the Asia Minor Championship for the Boston Major and second at iBUYPOWER Masters 2017.

"We are excited to have Naf-fly on the roster as he has been one of the best performing NA talents over the past few months," Team Liquid stated in a press release. "After joining Renegades his firepower helped push them to a number of impressive results and we're confident he'll be able to do the same for us."

jdm has been signed to Liquid since June 2016, and helped the team place 5th-8th at ESL One: Cologne 2017, second at ESL One: New York 2017 and first in the Americas Minor for the Boston Major.

According to a video released by Liquid, the team is moving to a more flexible AWPing lineup, with Nicholas "nitr0" Cannella as the primary AWPer, along with NAF and Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken as backups.

NAF will play his first games with Liquid at the upcoming CS Summit this weekend.
