Devilwalk joins OpTic as coach

Jonatan "Devilwalk" Lundberg has joined OpTic Gaming as coach, Damian "daps" Steele has confirmed on Twitter.

The news had been accidentally leaked by Oscar "⁠mixwell⁠" Cañellas on his stream last night as he showed a WhatsApp group chat with OpTic players discussing travel plans.

Jonatan "⁠Devilwalk⁠" Lundberg has been out of action since February, when he stepped down from Ancients, now known as GODSENT. At the time, he stated that he was taking a step back from gaming due to wrist problems.


Devilwalk returns to coaching 

The 25-year-old is no stranger to coaching, having guided fnatic through one of their most successful periods, which included a Major title at ESL One Katowice 2015.

OpTic were the big sensation at the offline qualifier for ESL One Cologne, where they picked up wins over Fluffy Gangsters, FlipSid3 Tactics and HellRaisers. The Canadian team have been drawn into Group 4 of the Major, alongside Na´Vi, Ninjas in Pyjamas and FlipSid3.

OpTic Gaming's roster is now:

Canada Keith "⁠NAF⁠" Markovic
Canada Damian "⁠daps⁠" Steele
Canada Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz
United States William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba
Spain Oscar "⁠mixwell⁠" Cañellas 

Sweden Jonatan "⁠Devilwalk⁠" Lundberg (coach)

devil walk might actually make this into a good thing, only problem atm, from what i see is that daps is very weak player.

flusha said in a interview that devilwalk job was only make sure people got their flight tickets and hotel reserves. he didn't interfer in-game like vuggo does so yeah devilwalk never "lead" them. he was more like a spokesperson and manager than a coach.

Just hope it doesn't make the team worse. They've been improving steadily, I don't see how at this point they already needed a coach to improve further.

Very happy for Optic. They needed a coach and this should help. I look forward to seeing how they do. With Optic starting to look good, Liquid with an improving roster, Cloud9 showing flashes, TSM showing flashes, and Echo Fox showing flashes, things are beginning to look up for NA gaming. Now, CLG has to do something so they can pull themselves back into the mix.
