Amer ‘Miracle-‘ Al-Barkawi is the current mid player for Team Liquid. ‘Miracle-‘ is half Jordanian and half Polish and has gained significant fame through having, at one point, achieved the highest MMR in Europe and the world.
‘Miracle-‘s career began in 2015, when he joined Balkan Bears. While playing with Balkan Bears, the team managed to place 2nd at the Bridon League Open Cup, although he was later removed. Having been removed from Balkan Bears, ‘Miracle-‘ focused on his solo MMR and later managed to achieve the highest rank in Europe. Following this, ‘N0tail’ offered him a spot on the team (monkey) Business, which had recently been formed after The International 2015. This team would later become known as OG.
The team qualified for The Frankfurt Major, the first of the Valve sponsored events and managed to claim first place at the event. The Frankfurt Major presented ‘Miracle-‘ with an opportunity to demonstrate his skills to his opponents. Following OG’s success at the Major, the squad continued to be one of the most dominant teams winning the ASUS ROG DreamLeague Season 4, ESL One Frankfurt 2016 and the Manila Major 2016. OG were strong favorites to win The International 2016, although after an incredibly disappointing 9th/12th place, ‘Miracle-‘ would come to leave OG.
After his unfortunate loss at The International 2016, ‘Miracle-‘ was picked up by Team Liquid. Initially, the team struggled, as they failed to qualify for The Boston Major. Although when ‘GH’ would join in January of 2017, Team Liquid quickly rose to the top. Team Liquid had an incredible season from the beginning of 2017 and won several events including EPICENTER 2017, StarLadder i-League Season 2, and DreamLeague Season 7. Following this highly successful period, Team Liquid put on an equally dominating performance at The International 2017, resulting in a 1st place result for the team.
‘Miracle’ achieved some incredible results while he played with OG, including 1st place at both the Frankfurt and Manila Major. Despite a poor performance at The International 2016, ‘Miracle-‘ managed to come back with the help of Team Liquid. While playing with Team Liquid, he helped secure 1st place at a number of events, including The International 2017 at the young age of 20.
