The Return of Jdm64: What we know
Starting June 10th I will be considered a free agent and no longer under contract w/ liquid. It’s been my choice to sit out these few months of comp play but I’m ready to get back to it. Thank you liquid for everything, I’m excited and ready to see what comes next!

Where will JDM land?
There have been a plethora of potential teams that have expressed interested in JDM, most notably Cloud 9 as a replacement for Tyler “Skadoodle“ Latham, however, the deal did not materialize as Latham ended up staying on for Cloud 9’s ELEAGUE run.
Fans’ have also expressed some mixed reviews for the potential Cloud 9 move, citing JDM as “overrated” while others have supported the idea of a potential double AWP setup with JDM & Skadoodle, fan theories have also led to a potential move to either GHOST or eUnited citing that they lack some potential “Firepower” that JDM could bring, however, the jury is still out on that.
The theories out there so far include (in no particular order):
- Cloud 9
Be sure to leave your theories in the comments.
The History of JDM
Formerly part of the Counterlogic Gaming Squad (CLG) we got our first taste of JDM in CS:GO back in mid-2015 during which time we saw a 3rd place finish at the ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 Finals where Fnatic took the top spot.
After which we saw the North American star sign with Liquid in early June 2016 in a trade deal between Liquid & CLG for Kenneth “koosta“ Suen during which time we saw Liquid gather 2nd place finishes at the ESL One Cologne 2016 Major, ESG Tour Mykonos and ESL One New York 2017.
