peacemaker to NRG; ptr out
After a string of bad results, NRG has decided to restructure its team looking into the new year, with Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu coming on as a coach and general manager, and Peter "ptr" Gurney announcing he will not be re-signing with the team.
Two big tournament exits, first at ESL's Pro League finals in Brazil where the team was unable to get a single victory in their five group stage matches, followed by losing their group's decider match at Northern Arena, foreshadowed the team and organization going through roster and structural changes.
peacemaker will be charged with rebuilding NRG in 2017
The first change announced has been the acquisition of peacemaker, who will be acting as the team's coach and general manager for 2017 and will work on rebuilding and restructuring the team. Shortly after, Peter "ptr" Gurney announced he will not extend his contract and will, therefore, be looking to land a spot in a new organization.
I am delighted to be coming on board as the new general manager of NRG's CS:GO team. They're an organization with huge amibition in all the games they compete in—CS:GO is no different.
I consider this project to be the biggest and most important project in my CS:GO career, and I am super motivated about the opportunity NRG has given me. NRG as an org has the same passion and drive to build a winner. I will be taking the reins here and working with ownership to remake the roster into a world contender.
I'd like to thank all my fans for the amount of love you guys always gave to me and I send a special message to all the NRG fans: you better be ready because in 2017 we will shock the world together!
Therefore, NRG's lineup now consists of:
Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu (coach)
