Earlier yesterday, popular play-by-play caster Austin "Capitalist" Walsh revealed that his casting partner William "Blitz" Lee will not be casting at The International 10 and that the duo would stop casting events as the season progresses. 

He also revealed that he would be making a new casting duo with Trent "TrentPax" MacKenzie.

Many fans were perplexed by this decision and were wondering about Blitz’s future plans and whether he would be associated with Dota 2 in the future. It looks like those fears will be put to rest after Capitalist revealed that Blitz will be coaching Team Liquid in this season of the Dota Pro Circuit in his weekly ‘Side Pull Podcast’.

In all likelihood, Capitalist states that Blitz will coach the ‘New Liquid featuring the TI9 Alliance stack’. The team has lacked a coach, after leaving the Alliance organisation and looks poised to take in a new coach. This might very well be Blitz

However, considering the fact that many still continue to refer to Kuroky’s stack as Team Liquid, we cannot count them out as well. Blitz has coached Kuroky’s team in the past, leading them to a second-place finish in the Manila Major. So it will not be that surprising to see them reunite.

An official announcement by the Liquid Organisation/Blitz is yet to be made.
