Escutin clarified that their partnership with Team Falcons goes beyond EWC. “We plan to execute different initiatives through this partnership.”

Team Liquid made public its entry to MLBB with the acquisition of PH org ECHO and the ID-based AURA.

Based in the Netherlands, Team Liquid hosts teams across a multitude of titles, including League of Legends, StarCraft II, Dota 2, and Counter:Strike 2.

“We have always admired the intensity and loyalty of fans in Indonesia and the Philippines, which we’ve experienced firsthand in esports events in the past. When we saw an opportunity to strengthen our presence in Southeast Asia with these incredible competitive teams, we knew we had to do it with an organization built with the same values and philosophy as our own. We found that partner in the staff and fans of AURA and ECHO,” says Victor Goossens, Co-CEO of Team Liquid.
