Victor "Nazgul" Goossens (Dutch: ['vIktɔʁ 'xosəns]) is a former Dutch Brood War player who was one of the first non-Koreans to play professionally in Korea. He is one of the owners of


The founder of, Liquid`Nazgul, arrived in Korea in December 2002, joining the AMD team along with Grrrr..., Elky, Gundam, Jinnam and Jinsu. He managed to beat stars like Jinnam and Xellos on TV and managed to qualify for the OnGameNet Challenge League 2003. Despite these early successes, he moved back to the Netherlands shortly after to pursue an education. He never stopped competing at the WCG national qualifiers though and attended the grand finals four times, from 2001 to 2004.

In Beta[edit]

Nazgul played beta competitively and has become one of the top Protoss players on the EU ladders. His first success in a tournament came in the ESL TV Pro Invite Cup where defeated 3 consecutive Zergs with an aggressive Force Field strategy at their ramp. He was defeated by LucifroN in the finals. Nazgul played in the TeamLiquid SC2 Invitational 1 where he came third after losing to TheLittleOne in the semifinals. He defeated HayprO 2-0 in the third place match to claim his $50 prize.

Nazgul is credited (alongside Smuft) with creating the 4 Warpgate Rush and is known for his creative play on Blistering Sands[1]

Wings of Liberty[edit]

Upon release, Nazgul focused on helping Liquid` members,TLO and Jinro, settle in Korea alongside the oGs team. Although Nazgul has chosen to remain relatively inactive in the professional scene, he participated in 2010 MLG Dallas national championships where he would take down IdrA, 2-1, by making use of Blink Stalkers.


  • Plays Protoss in both Brood War and StarCraft II.
  • Became a professional poker player shortly after his Brood War career.
  • Stated in an interview (after a long deliberation) that if he could only keep one Liquid` player on the team, it would be Jinro due to his long-standing membership in the TL forums and staff. (HotBid would then accuse Nazgul of being crazy due to his apparent lack of impartiality).
  • If stuck on a deserted island with only two Liquid` players, he would pick HayprO due to his humor (but nobody else).
  • Only team manager to have a 100% winrate against IdrA.[2]
  • Plays left-handed despite being right-handed because "there was only space for a mouse on the left so I became left-handed with the mouse".[3]
