Saving NACS: EliGE helps University team

It's fair to say that NA has struggled quite a bit in the past few years. Since Team Liquid's mini-era in 2019, not a single North-American roster has managed to break out big. The lower tiers in the region have been devastated by a lack of support, match-fixing scandals, and players jumping to VALORANT.

With this in mind, nurturing the next generation of NA talent should be a priority. This is exactly what Team Liquid's Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski did yesterday.

One of the greatest talents the region has ever seen, EliGE used his downtime between the RMR and the BLAST Showdown to review a demo on stream.

But rather than choosing a demo from a game he recently played, he opted to review a game from Davenport University.

Davenport is ranked 199th on HLTV's team ranking at the time of writing but is meant as a place where young talents can develop in a collegiate environment.
