Rickeh joins Renegades

MIRAA
July 12th, 2016 20:16

Renegades have completed their lineup with the addition of Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland from Immunity, team manager Chris "GoMeZ" Orfanellis has told HLTV.org.

 

The Australian team had been on the lookout for a new player following the departure of Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill, who decided to call time on a playing career that saw him attend multiple Majors throughout 2014 and 2015.

Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland is one of the most experienced players in Australia and spent over five years representing Immunity, with whom he attended the 2015 ESL One Cologne Major.


Rickeh is Renegades' new AWPer 

The 24-year-old will take up the position of AWPer for the team, with Yaman "yam" Ergenekon taking over as ingame leader following SPUNJ's departure.

"After the recent retirement of SPUNJ we took some time to evaluate our options for a replacement player," Orfanellis told HLTV.org. "We decided that Yam would move to IGL and we wanted a dedicated AWP player to fill that role. With this in mind, we concluded that Rickeh would be the best fit for our roster.

"The addition of Rickeh to the team has been invigorating, as we have scrapped most of our old tactics/positions and started afresh with added motivation. 

"We have been practicing as a team for 10 days now and, whilst we were not expecting to be playing a tournament this soon, we are optimistic about our chances of causing an upset."

This is the second time this year that Renegades have signed a player from Immunity, having secured the services of Karlo "USTILO" Pivac in February after parting ways with Luke "Havoc" Paton. 

Rickeh will be making his debut for Regenades on Wednesday, when the team will take on FlipSid3 Tactics in the last-chance qualifier for ELEAGUE. HLTV.org knows that this will be the Australians' last event under Renegades as the players will sign for a new organisation after the tournament is over.

Renegades' CS:GO roster consists of:

Australia Yaman "yam" Ergenekon
Australia Justin "jks" Savage
Australia Aaron "AZR" Ward
Australia Karlo "USTILO" Pivac
Australia Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland

Not very surprising. But they already have Yam for AWP unless he is gonna take over a more support role.
2016-07-12 20:16
Read the post lmao. Yam is now igl and rickeh is awp. Tryna talk without reading. Gj
2016-07-12 20:18
Yeah, IGL can still be the dedicated AWP for a team.
2016-07-12 20:18
Yam will be secondary awp
2016-07-12 20:21
You have a problem with reading, it clearly says Rickeh is main awp. What situation would that make Yam dedicated awp.
2016-07-14 22:14
Yam will be 2nd awper on ct side, which is something that renegades could never do because only yam could awp. Yam's rifling is also pretty good.
2016-07-12 20:23
Read the fucking article you autist lmao. "The 24-year-old will take up the position of AWPer for the team, with Yaman "yam" Ergenekon taking over as ingame leader following Burchill's departure."

rickeh is actually a pretty good rifler - obviously he isn't as good as jks or azr but he's a much better rifler than awpers such as jdm, skadoodle, koosta etc.

3 of 5 players of current line-up are ex-Immunity players. Expected as f4k, lel. GL Rickeh, deserved. I was sure about renegades next line-up change will be +Rickeh. One of the best players in Au. Sick player sometimes. GL GL GL.
2016-07-13 06:29
RNG have the worst organization as a whole ever. Sketchy ass shit they do. Just look it up Spunj letting everyone know what kind of shit show they were running. Sell them for their own good please, I want to see them win.
