Team Liquid announced Nisha's addition to the team via a YouTube video. "First of all, I wanted to try a new team," explained Nisha in the announcement video. "Why Team Liquid? I don't know. I feel like I will be comfortable, it seemed like probably the top org in the world."
Nisha added that he was looking forward to hanging out and playing with his new teammates. "I really wanted to play with miCKe for sure. iNSaNiA is a fun guy and I think he works hard, from what I've seen I will enjoy playing with him," he added.

Nisha explains why he left Team Secret
Nisha also explained his departure from Team Secret by stating that he wanted to try something new. He said, "Even though we changed like three players during the season, it still wasn't enough I think."
He added that he wanted to change the overall picture and that joining Team Liquid would give him that much needed change. "I need to be enabled in some ways and I don't think I had power in the last team to bring those things up," he elaborated.
