Team Liquid has added a new member to their ever-growing family of teams, streamers, and content creators. On 15 June 2021, Brian “BSJ” Canavan joined the Team Liquid organization to be a streamer and content creator for the org. BSJ has been one of North America’s staples in the Dota 2 community. His streams are one of the most-watched in the region, and his YouTube Channel has been the source of quality educational Dota 2 content for all types of players.

Team Liquid welcomes NA Talent BSJ into the organization

BSJ has been in the Dota 2 esports scene since early 2015 where he played in the Team Summer’s Rift with not much success. Since then, he started and continued streaming for Complexity Gaming. His entry into the casting, analyzing, and talent scene came in 2018 after the team he was playing on failed to qualify for any DPC events.

He made one last attempt at professional play at the beginning of the 2018 DPC season on his newly formed team “ROONS” with former teammates monkeys-forever and Jubei. However, BSJ has since focused on his career as a talent and a streamer following the team’s lackluster performance.

BSJ’s Announcement Stream

BSJ had been alluding to a big change for a while and along with Team Liquid’s announcement, he also went on stream officially as a Team Liquid streamer and explained the situation, and gave more insight on the move. He mentioned that he would be moving to, and staying at the Team Liquid Headquarters in Utrecht, Netherlands. He further explained that he would have to be on-site at the Team Liquid HQ for three months after which he could choose to have personal housing.

BSJ mentions that with this change in ecosystem, his content creation and coaching will not be changing. As part of the signing, he will be offering redeemable coaching sessions as a reward on Liquid+. He also notes that he will be spending more time with the teams and the org, creating content and will not be restricted from his casting and analyst career, and will still be invited to Dota 2 events.

North America’s last hope finally dwindles with the BananaSlamJamma’s move to Europe. It will be interesting to follow his new journey over on his Twitch and YouTube channels
