LIQUIDSTEREO started his journey in Civ back in April of 2021, when he joined CivRealms and ended up taking residence in Dbugingrad. He stayed there and even began constructing his own town in the territory before moving to CivClassic when the nation as an whole decided to leave CivRealms for good. When he joined CivClassic he gained citizenship and began working in New Sovia before deciding he wanted to make his own country. He quickly befriended Mount September resident GarterSnake and they began working on an possible new nation called Nightwatch. In the end they decided on making it a colony of Sussex, and that's when Liquid and Ch1pR became friends. GarterSnake would eventually betray Liquid in an attempted insiding of Sussex, causing the fall of Nightwatch and for Liquid to move to Antietam.
United States of Sussex & Partyland
In late August, LIQUIDSTEREO started his signature nation Partyland, a shitposting nation high in memes and tomfoolery. However it's development was halted when Ch1pR announced him as the temporary emperor of Sussex after he had been pearled by Nyasalander BennyZ. He made a follow-up announcement soon after that the transition was no longer temporary, but permanent. In response to this, Liquid ordered a reconstruction of the nation's government into a representative republic. This would only last about a half a month before Ch1pR was released and reinstated as the emperor, thus ending the short lived republic. However, this did open up room for Liquid to flesh out his own nation Partyland. He began working on the town of Shitville and other small projects to fill the time and further establish Partyland as a legit nation.
Newfriend Development Initiative
In late September and early October, Liquid created SUS (Section of Unified States), an alliance of nations he considered to be cool. It was originally nothing more than a meme, however he quickly noticed how many newfriend nations wanted to join and decided to give it the goal of being a safe alliance for newfriend nations to ally and help each other grow. During this time, Liquid began getting into some tomfoolery and started a saga known as the Party Wars, which were a period of wars waged by Partyland against the stupidest things imaginable. It was also around this time that Sussex began to drop off in population and Liquid began attempting to find other places to spend his time when he wasn't in Partyland.
City of England Revival
In late October, Liquid managed to convince the two Kings of City of England to let him become a citizen and as such he began working to help the nation out. It was mainly things such as helping renew reinforcements and renovation for awhile until the Jomsviking-England Incident occurred, which inspired him to make helping City of England his full time dedication. With that, he dissolved Partyland and stepped down as the head of NDI, working on reviving England instead. Within the month, England had acquired over 10 citizens and was slowly becoming a big hub of activity for the first time since it's founding 4 years previous. As well as being a helping hand, Liquid briefly did some trolling by making a whole nation of alts called Atmora. It was assumed to just be a group of friends that knew each other in real life, however after the server shut down on December 18th, it was revealed to just be Liquid playing on 4 different alts.
Moving to CivRev
After shutting down, Liquid would move from CivClassic to the new server CivRev as a founding member of Icarus. Soon after complications raised in Icarus however, Liquid gave up trying to be a serious nation head and created Partyland 2: Oh God It's Back, which served as a spiritual successor to the first Partyland and was a return to form with it's tomfoolery. However, due to a lack of interest in the server, Liquid announced he was going on hiatus from Civ on January 5th, 2022. After this announcement, he would only be active in the Sovia discord server for the next two months.
In early March of 2022, LIQUIDSTEREO slowly began returning to the discords he had left two months prior. Soon after his quiet return, CivMC opened up it's discord server and thus Liquid became actively involved in the Civ community again and ended up helping out his IRL friend SomeoneOK make a nation called Mercurial Market States. In late April of 2022, he would be elected the new Prime Minister of Icarus (Second Republic) after having returned to the server. During this time, he would begin spending time on the beta version of CivReign, helping Icarus establish a presence and create allies on the server.
After CivMC launched in late May of 2022, Liquid found himself being pulled four different ways as he had pledged loyalty to Icarus (CivMC), Mercurial Market States, City of England, and Sovia (CivMC) at the same time. However after being put in a position of leadership in Icarus as one of the founders alongside CredixYt, he primarily resided there with frequent visits to CoE. He and a number of Icarians would spend most of June building up their then capital city Atlas and terraforming Mount Olympus with the help of newfriend Icarians Zolo17 and SOGGYHOBO. Soon after launch however, vpn raiders Abbyshapiro and TrustThePlan sacked what was present of Icarus infrastructure with most valuables being taken and all factories being destroyed. After leaders SinjoroJoCrafter of Western Boundary and ErrorL of the Kingdom of ErrorLreached out to Liquid with allegations that the nation of Blockchainistan was harboring both raiders, they proceeded to plan an assault and declare war on the country. Icarus as a whole agreed to declare and participate in war against Blockchainistan on the condition that they get the pearls of both Abby and Trust, to which the allies agreed. Soon after Liquid posted a declaration of war on Blockchainistan to Reddit, but couldn't participate in the raid itself due to work obligations IRL. However, the raid was primarily only a success for Western Boundary in the end as they got to occupy the lands that Blockchainistan had settled on due to close proximity while Icarus and KOEL received absolutely nothing because no one from Blockchainistan ever logged on for defense (meaning no Abbyshapiro or TrustThePlan pearls) and all raiders were forced to return all stolen goods as a part of the peace treaty. The coalition against Blockchainistan received much backlash for the mishandling of the situation and in particular Rhode Island, who had recently joined COMRADES, denounced Icarus' actions. Soon after it had ended and with the public denouncement of the invasion from Icarus' closest ally at the time Sovia, Icarus voted to leave COMRADES and become semi-isolationist for a period of time. TrustThePlan, wanting to wash their hands free of the incident, agreed to pay reparations to Icarus for the raids in exchange for their POS to be dropped, to which Liquid agreed and eventually received payment through a visit from SpeedyJustice.
Moving Across the Map & Raids Crisis
Struggling with a lack of land to expand Icarus' small claim for EXP and a need to be closer to Sovia, Liquid decided to push for Icarus to move out to the Western border and set up there, to which the government agreed. Liquid and CredixYt decided to give the original claim and it's city to Grumpywalnut96 who would eventually found Cascadia there and with that, moved to the jungles in the West. Soon after moving, Liquid helped set up what would eventually become Blue Cove and the new capital of Icarus in it's earliest form. During it's early stages, Icarus was very quiet and only semi-active and sporting a much more tropical style of builds than the eventual ancient greek style. However, even as things began to look up for Icarus after such a shaky start, Abbyshapiro would hit Icarus a second and third time in early August as havoc from the Generic War spread across the server. All of the chaos would peak for Icarus when former leader of Fellowship Vah arrived at Icarus' skybunker and demanded to be let inside to "collect what was theirs" as apparently Icarian zolo17 had stolen from the Fellowship at some point while playing with them. After being denied, Liquid and Glerk engaged Vah only to be killed and eventually pearled by them, leading to a wave of panic from Icarian officials. Liquid eventually called for help and received aid almost instantly from Western Boundary members Aetherix, SinjoroJoCrafter, Spoonce, and ChewLeKitten who were able to eventually free him and chase Vah off. Humiliated but thankful, Liquid thanked Western Boundary but would later announce his resignation from the Icarian government as Prime Minister and go on hiatus.
While on hiatus, the Generic War came to an anticlimactic close when every player that had associated with Rhode Island at the point were given the ban hammer. However, this also included many of Liquid's friends in Sovia, essentially killing off the nation when it had very little to do with Rhode Island as only two Sovians had been fighting for them throughout the war. After this happened, Liquid came back online and decided to try and revive the nation under the new name Neo Sovia and began trying to recruit others to help with it's revitalization. However, this attempt remained relatively unsuccessful with Liquid being the only active citizen playing in the nation throughout it's lifespan in late 2022. Only a couple months, after it's founding, Liquid had mostly burnt out on Civ for awhile and decided to just hand over all the land to Icarus and play on and off there.
After going on hiatus once more in December 2022, Liquid would return again in February of 2023 to play on the newly launched CivReign. He gathered up a few Icarians and with help from his friend FE Flags, founded the nation of Pol'sha-Litva to play on the server with heavy ties to Sovia once again. At the beginning of the server, Pol'sha-Litva, Sovia, and Petoria all started together and gained enough supplies to eventually move to new spots across the continent. However, not long after moving and with many frustrations about constant raiding and grindiness of the server's mechanics, Liquid and the rest of Pol'sha-Litva looked to play the also newly launched CivRev 3.0 instead.
LIQUIDSTEREO has a side hobby as an electronic music producer. He typically dabbles in the Dubstep / House side of EDM, opting for more danceable tracks. He in fact, released an EP titled "A Civ Adventure" in early October, 2021.
On the 9th of June, Liquid submitted an edit of his track "Feel The Love" titled "Feel The Love (2nd Edit)" for the Petrichor Summer Arts Competition. Nearly a month later on July 3rd, it was announced that his track had won first place (out of 2) and was declared the winner of the music portion of the competition.
