Following Floppy, who joined Extra Salt from Valorant, the 26-year-old retired veteran returns to compete in Counter Strike.
Team Liquid has signed Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella from 100 Thieves Valorant back to their active CS:GO division, the North American organization announced on its Twitter handle. This marks the nitr0’s return to Team Liquid after retiring from Counter Strike: Global Offensive in August 2020 to pursue a career in Riot’s tactical first-person shooter Valorant.
After Team Liquid decided to overhaul their roster for the 2022 pro season after their unsuccessful big run, they were poised to make a variety of changes within their CS:GO roster, which include Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, Jake “Stewie2K” Yip and others moved Michael “Grim” Wince to the bank. This actually paved the way for Extra Salt’s Josh “oSee” Ohm to replace Fallen in the team’s sniper duties, while a surprise move brought Team Vitality’s Richard “shox” Papillon to Liquid, who recently signed the ex-Astralis trio .

Reportedly, nitr0 has been associated with Team Liquid as the final piece of the puzzle under which the previous iterations of Team Liquid Championships at ESL One Cologne 2019, Intel Grand Slam Season 2, BLAST Pro Series: Los Angeles 2019 and most notably the 1,000,000 US dollars secured Intel Grand Slam Season 2 after climbing the 4-tournament threshold via Vitality at Cologne’19.
Team Liquid’s plans to restructure come after failing to bag events for the past two years after winning their last event at Intel Extreme Masters XIV – Chicago in 2019.
With the return of nitr0, Liquid are now:
- Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski
- Keith “NAF” Markovic
- Says Josh “oSee” Ohm
- Richard “shox” Papillon
- Nick “nitr0” Cinnamon
- Eric “adreN” Hoag (Head Coach)
