Renegades release Havoc
Time: 2016-02-09 11:21
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Renegades have announced that they have parted ways with Luke "Havoc" Paton with immediate effect.

The news comes as a result of a string of mixed results from the Australian team, who recently missed out on a place at IEM Katowice after finishing runners-up to TheMongolz at the Asia Regional Minor.

Replacing Luke "Havoc" Paton on Renegades' starting lineup will be Karlo "USTILO" Pivac, who had been a stand-out player for Immunity since joining the team from Streamline in April.

Havoc exits Renegades 

While playing for Immunity, the 22-year-old attended a number of international LAN events, including ESL One Cologne, where he posted a 1.15 rating despite his team losing both matches played at the major.

USTILO will make his first appearance for Renegades tonight, in the team's opening match in the ESL Pro League, against Enemy. Later this month, the Australian side will be in action at the offline qualifier for MLG Columbus, where they will try to secure entry into the upcoming major.

With these changes, Renegades now have the following roster:

Justin "jks" Savage
 Aaron "AZR" Ward
 Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill
 Yaman "yam" Ergenekon
 Karlo "USTILO" Pivac

Should have picked up rickeh
2016-02-09 12:40:03
rickeh was hitting some phenomenal shots in the major, it would be a great add for them.
2016-02-09 12:48:45
Rickeh loves his mates at iM hed never leave
2016-02-09 12:53:01
true but I have heard him say on stream that "dogging on your mates" is a necessary part of the game
2016-02-09 15:01:46
But they did not pick Rickeh because they are releasing a riffler not an awper.
GL to Havoc :(
2016-02-09 15:41:47
The weird thing is thst Havoc has traditionally been as AWPer and one of the best in Australia. I have no idea why he wasn't doing it in RNG
2016-02-09 18:39:56
He was a rifler in source and was bloody good at it. I'm not quite sure what his motivation in changing over in GO was.
2016-02-09 22:38:11
2016-02-10 01:56:09
Actually, the story goes Rickeh begged Spunj to take Havocs place but due to Spunj not liking Rickeh he offered it up to Ustilo. A lot of people aren't seeing this but this OCEShuffle right now is more drama and fighting than Shuffling...
2016-02-09 21:58:15
Its very sad tbh..idk why havoc was so bad he could have ec bought a 3000dollar cheat and would have topfragged
2016-02-09 11:54:52
lol +1
2016-02-09 14:10:27
He already as a new team
2016-02-09 12:01:42
Ive just gotten home from work help a mate out, where is Havoc now?
2016-02-09 12:53:34
Maybe learn how to google?
2016-02-09 14:23:50
Whatever, be a useless cunt then.
2016-02-09 16:25:41
You're the useless cunt actually. I googled it, and found the info in 10 sec.
How fucking hard can it be to learn these idiot proof things, like finding information on the internet?
2016-02-09 22:29:15
Really? You are a cunt.
2016-02-10 15:21:18
maybe you could have just told him the team, no need to be a complete dickhead
2016-02-27 22:08:59
hes in a better place now, rip

lol topgun, the guy who retired bcuz of RL? pro cs players have no RL - another rolemodel of that... retiring... coemback...retiring...cumback...
2016-02-28 11:41:36
I guess he assumed retiring because their scene is not that big and he couldn't find a team to fit in. That's my explanation...
2016-02-28 13:55:06
is it okay if i read it as degenerates.

lol edwards beard is not better. i've seen dudes in like grade 9 or 10 here in australia with better beards than edward.

edwards beard looks like that scene in jackass the movie where they glue the dudes pubes onto that guys face and it looks all patchy and gross

like you could stick beard hair up your ass and then fart it in edwards general direction and he's have a better looking beard than if he grew it.

some people should not grow beards

2016-02-09 11:24:21
Renegades has piss poor decision making if they think havoc is the weak link.
2016-02-09 11:24:24
How so?
2016-02-09 11:26:17
Because now RNG have fuck all beard game
2016-02-09 11:38:27
Yam is trying to balance the beard yin and yang
2016-02-09 11:48:03
yam just looks like a hobo tho it doesn't work

-yam + rickeh. also looks kinda creepo but at least is sick with the awp
2016-02-09 15:28:08
they dont have a fat guy either :/ so there fat guy to good hair ratio is stuffed
2016-02-11 17:17:13
Been waiting for them to drop havoc for ages, caked way to many important rounds for my liking..
2016-02-09 11:49:27

unless he wanted to leave :(
2016-02-09 16:01:19
The statement on the Renegades website said that Havoc stepped down.

2016-02-09 11:42:35
he's joining a team with topgun in it
2016-02-09 11:49:26
Ive heard topgun havoc moku lightstep, not sure about lightstep.
2016-02-09 12:14:15
best possible move they could make
2016-02-09 11:30:07
2016-02-09 11:30:51
2016-02-09 11:31:20
finally was underperforming alot.
just like the whole team..
2016-02-09 11:31:56
I don't really follow renegades, but isn't spunj their weakest player?
2016-02-09 11:34:24
He is igl
2016-02-09 11:38:07
he's igl and actually a pretty decent fragger, sometimes he goes ham and carries like when they faced Titan, doesn't happen too often though.
2016-02-09 11:39:42
ok, thanks. Anyway feels bad that havoc is out of the team, he was always their "face" to me
2016-02-09 11:43:56
agreed :( him and spunj imo.
2016-02-09 11:46:02
2016-02-09 12:23:51
he goes ham when his team shits the bed , he gets mad and stop full IGL and focuses on kills , drops 20kills at least
2016-02-09 13:21:06
spunj always outfragged havoc while also being the igl/strat caller
2016-02-09 11:41:11
Spunj much more Important then havoc..
2016-02-09 11:50:50
Spuj makes pretty good impact kills

2016-02-09 11:35:26

2016-02-09 11:38:29

bad ratio, i can undestand, and he isn't the lead.

Bye mascott
2016-02-09 11:39:39
+1 he had bad performances, and being nice guy isn't enough if you want to win
2016-02-09 11:41:20
Can we kick Spunj next.
2016-02-09 11:41:21
Yeah and have no igl, good idea.
He's rated top 10 igl's in the world..
2016-02-09 11:52:30
because there are only 10 total ?

Just as overrated as that shitter Gob-B

2016-02-09 11:59:09
Of course. The only difference being that spunj can actually frag unlike gob b.

Just stating facts, being a good leader doesn't mean winning every match. He constantly calls every game and has good strats.
Yes I may be Australian and have pet roo's, But Why are you hiding your third world flag?
2016-02-10 02:56:20
Calls every game has good strats, but fail to qualify or reach top 4?
So how exactly does this make him top 10 in the world.. if they don't even make top 10

Aussie logic..
2016-02-10 07:24:56
It isn't aussie logic its this guys retarded logic
2016-02-10 07:57:01
bro stop lieing......
We dont have pet roo's in australia and spunj is definitely not in the top 10 igl's in the world. he's good dont get me wrong, but not THAT good.

sorry for my countryman's dishonesty coldfront we dont have pet roo's here, and sorry for his rudeness as he cant see past his own sheltered vision of the counter strike scene (probably get most of his onfo from reddit)
macleod mate, go back to reddit your drunk........
2016-02-11 17:27:46
I had a pet Roo once..
If this guy wants to be a tool I'll be smart back.
Someone (I think esl) posted a list of the top igl's last year and spunj was on there. I tried finding it but couldn't come across it.
2016-02-12 00:04:46
yes we can i will talk aboout organisation tomorrow probably he will be kicked friday or something like that.
2016-02-09 12:25:07

if he had the same effort becoming a pro then growing a beard he would be the best in the world already
2016-02-09 12:01:49
bro as someone who has and can grow a beard, trust me when i say it takes absolutely zero effort to grow a beard.

you just wake up in the morning and decide, "nah not gonna shave today," repeat process, end up with a beard.
if pro's put as much effort as it takes to grow a beard into being pro, then the pro's would all suck
2016-02-11 17:31:32
well then u have probably food stains in your beard if u never wash it and such , my roommate is like santaclaus beard and says its pain in the ass :)

Called it boys!

The other "unnamed" team will consist of:

Ofnu, Moku, Lightstep, Topgun, Havoc

They will be competing for a division one spot in CGPL within a few weeks.

I think that this will be a good change to the RNG line-up they have been in need of a stronk entry fragger(Ustilo) for some time.
2016-02-09 12:10:02

Renegades stealing players from Immunity. This reminds me SK back in 1.6 days
2016-02-09 12:17:21
I'm guessing you don't speak English as your first language due to the dramatic misuse of the word "stealing" he wasn't kidnapped and made to change teams it was his own choice and if Immunity had him under contract and released him then it was agreed apon by both parties. Therefore it was a sound and legitimate transaction. Learn to London mate.
2016-02-09 12:22:44
by saying stealing i ment that it seems that Renegades/Vox Eminor can get any AUS player they want whenever they need a new guy in their lineup.

"if Immunity had him under contract" - how come he hasn't got one when it's been like 8months since he joined Immunity

Yep, they're the Luminosity of the OCE scene.
2016-02-09 16:42:51
That bug eyed fuck picked him up because Ustilo was raping other aus teams.
2016-02-09 12:33:13
Stealing? He was basically promoted..
Did you post this when Kennys was stolen from titan and given to nv?
I assume Not because it was two French teams coming together to improve the better one..
2016-02-09 12:30:53
Salary or no salary... hmmm I bet a brain dead cunt like you could possibly figure this one out.
2016-02-09 12:38:06
uuu aussie attacks everywhere.

How should i know that IM doesn't even pays one. And even back in the Vox Eminor days, i think someone even mentioned that Immunity had more sponsors than them.
2016-02-09 12:47:53
These aren't attacks this is just how we speak to each other

Ive followed them since they first appeared with that lineup with snyper and topgun in. Since they brought yam in all he has done is to bottomfrag and occasionally go positive. The guy sucks. Havoc has been in a big slump too but yam has done anything right since he got brought in
2016-02-09 12:49:11
Havoc needs to find out hes a shit cunt... with a cool beard.
2016-02-09 12:25:19

2016-02-09 12:27:00
Would be a sick roster but Yam is improving and Rickeh wont leave iM
2016-02-09 12:57:00
Yam improving? *cough

I agree yam and havoc needs to go but yam is bad too. Tbh both should go and picked rickeh after ustilo.
2016-02-09 14:11:09
Havoc is a legend of Oceanic CS, sad to see him go, he'll always go down as one of the best but change was needed and he was the one underperforming the most. Can't wait to see USTILO, jks and AZR entering a site together!

good addition; but would love to see havoc continue playing competitively
2016-02-09 13:13:36
He's already in a new lineup
Ofnu, Moku, Havoc, TopguN, Lightstep

he could have easily hidden his cheats in his beard..
2016-02-09 13:24:13
Beard will be missed.

gl for Havoc and Renegades

This team never survived the hype.
2016-02-09 13:58:22
but what about the MLG Qualifier that says you need to play with the same 5 that qualified? WHAT HAPPENS THERE?!?!?!? NEED ANSWERS
2016-02-09 14:08:40
You just need 3 of the 5 players of the core roster
2016-02-09 14:31:04
Thsts for the legends team to keep their legends spot for the major. Pgl minor had a rule where it says teams cant make changes between minor and major qualifier http://minor.pglesports.com/information/ so if its the same for taipei theyre fucked.

did not know that about majors, if that were true than NiP would not be able to go to the next major. I think we have to agree u dont need all 5... same for Fnatic too?

twirl - HLTV.org
They've had confirmation from MLG that they are allowed to participate with the new lineup.
2016-02-09 17:04:57
thanks for the clarification twirl! :)

thats a big out for them. Havoc brought tons of intangibles to that team.

i do like that they are showing they can make big decisions tho, that they wont undermine the team by producing a friberg style situation.

2016-02-09 14:23:15
Never started practicing in the US, leaves team/make changes. 10/10
Guess someone couldn't stay being away from home.
2016-02-09 14:29:29
lol now they suck even more xD
2016-02-09 14:42:10
YES! Now I can stop cheering for a team that never wins anything.
Topgun and Havoc playing against t3's will absolutely rek everyone
2016-02-09 14:49:46
good luck havoc
2016-02-09 14:50:03
Hahahah USTILO is unexperienced shit compared to havoc the worst decision seriously

they will suck more
2016-02-09 14:52:26
Ustilo is a huge upgrade
2016-02-09 15:20:32

he could still join a team like nrg if he wants to stay in NA. He was definitely the weak link on renegades though dude whiffs hard at times. Called this would happen 1st of year holla
2016-02-09 15:15:20
-yam +topgun?
2016-02-09 15:18:26
2016-02-09 17:04:58
they couldnt handle the beard
2016-02-09 15:21:02
Good, now send yam back to immunity for rickeh.
2016-02-09 15:21:44
2016-02-09 15:23:30
He was shit anyway
2016-02-09 15:26:47

2016-02-09 16:27:11
Renegades have been on the downfall ever since they lost to EzSkins.
2016-02-09 16:27:32
the UK scene kiss of death. Renegades has always been a tier 3 meme team though.

why did he get thrown out?
2016-02-09 16:44:41
Havoc + topguN + 3 more will be nice Oceania line-up
2016-02-09 17:00:26
he leaves because renegades demand him to shave
2016-02-09 17:01:32
Fak off Renegades, Havoc is a good player, _(_
2016-02-09 17:26:44
-yam + rickeh and you can expecting something then
2016-02-09 17:38:41
+ Get_right - renegades
2016-02-09 17:42:24
As a fellow bearded man, I'm sad for this :C
2016-02-09 17:44:25

Was watching Rens games just cuz Havoc. So fuck you, organisation
2016-02-09 18:50:57
Havoc :-/
Hope i'll see him in another team some time again :)
2016-02-09 18:57:01
rip beard
2016-02-09 19:39:12
Finally, now -yam +rickeh and aussies can do something for once
2016-02-09 19:52:33
I actually hope immunity keep rick and drop James and pick up zewsy and dexter.
That lineup would do damage.
2016-02-10 01:54:28
As much as I love his beard, this was needed, he's been the weakest link of the team for some time.
2016-02-09 21:03:26
i loved that beard :(
2016-02-09 21:35:03
makes sense, but thats gotta be brutal.

so now is not only off the team, but hes back off to australia? hes probably not too bummed about going back home but thats a rough deal.
2016-02-09 22:30:08
bye bye Jesus
2016-02-09 22:30:42
good pickup, havoc just couldn't frag
2016-02-10 00:28:36
2016-02-10 03:58:40

2016-02-10 04:28:44
2016-02-10 08:01:37
Was good move but should replace yam with rikeh
2016-02-10 09:06:26
nooo havoc ;((
2016-02-10 13:22:34
I think they could do with more fifflaren.
2016-02-10 16:17:36
