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.

peacemaker's statement:

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:

Germany Fatih "gob b" Dayik
Germany Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz
Serbia Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić
United States Jacob "FugLy" Medina 

Brazil Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu (coach)

good move on paper. peacemaker is a good tactician. but from what i saw in that liquid documentary he is no zews when it comes to making people listen to him, so he will most likely fail.(also the germans are mediocre) still hopefully they won't let this apparent european reject team play on the na leagues. first of all this move means they've let go of their previous coach eley, who is literally the one brought the team to pro league from main when they were paradox/method. which is disrespectful towards him. one by one getting rid of the americans. dick move imo. secondly if the move about keev is true then they should not be allowed to play AT ALL. i can understand the BR and AUS teams to a certain degree. you CANNOT have an EU team on NA leagues. one or two player maybe. this is something else. (except for winterfox cuz even tho lex is a bad player and a boring person overall he literally brought ex-wfx from open to invite, ESL cannot be allowed to let the roster ownership on the teams instead of the players, what is those aussie/kiwi mix doing in NA i dont even know, hopefully zewsy will stay instead of yam in RNG in the near future tho) if this was ESEA in charge and not ESL they would obliterate this NRG roster in mere seconds. but it's ESL so im not keeping my hopes up. even if they are allowed to keep their spot it is going to be awesome to watch them getting destroyed. but hopefully they would be shipped straight back to germany. i believe in trump. still general manager is a big title. let's see what he accomplishes. my guess is close to nothing. his talents are gonna get wasted on this team. whatever team ptr gets will destroy the nrg trust me on that. tl;dr EU has an established competitive scene whereas BR and AU don't. NRG should be booted.

It's about what's the most interesting for players. EU has a huge scene in terms of player base and the number of organizations capable of fulfilling the needs of professional players is limited. It's not surprising that EU players will then turn to the US if they don't find a home in Europe.

First of all you're stupid mate,ptr is the wrost player in NRG and dont look at the stats,all what nrg need is a one good player either who can stay calm or who have expirirance,legija is capable awper,tabsen started to awp aswell. NRG would play way better if they were up against EU teams instead of NA,I dont want to write down 1000 sentance comment,so give me a problem in nrg and i will give you a fix for it.
2016-11-18 22:52
Your entire comment was "ptr sucks because his teammates can sorta awp and because the entire team sucks against NA teams" Sound logic

Croatia mds818 
Nah,NRG did good job in EPL of NA and they did fine,but the problem I see in ptr is fact that he is under heavy pressure which usually "forced" ptr to push with awp in stupid moments(I will never forget cache between NRG and Astralis where NRG lost 16-13 because of ptr..)
2016-11-19 01:33
Ptr was literally their best player both Online and on LAN. TabseN is a close second in online matches, but hes pretty much non existant on LAN A player rushing with AWP is something the IGL should be fixing straight away. You don't start rushing all the time just because you're under a bit of pressure. You may take aim duels you shouldn't, etc, but again, a good IGL would be able to control that

Croatia mds818 
Tabsen was best rated player in EPL online,ptr always did have good rating that is a reason why I did say dont look at stats of ptr,yes maybe igl should be fixing problem,but what ptr did was 2 or 3 rounds in row rushed with awp,literaly 2 times astralis went to site which he rushed,so he tried to make no scopes while 5 of them were going towards site,nrg lost a lot of match which they could not close...
2016-11-19 10:24
Which as i stated, is something that Gob B should be correcting. If players are defaulting to styles they would play against lesser teams in the big stage, the IGL needs to be giving them a set location to sit and hold, and tell them to how react when things happen. For someone as experienced an IGL as Gob B, you'd expect he'd have already done that, yet the entirety of NRG looks like its trying to win based on firepower alone, which is something it lacks hard. Ptr was by no means the problem of NRG. Gob B doing his usual thing minus the decent Ingame leading, plus LEGIJA being dog shit are the problems in NRG, and will continue to be. If ESL and FaceIt wisen the fuck up and deny NRG participation in their leagues, NRG will be facing EU teams and suddenly their problems will REALLY shine.
2016-11-19 10:39

2016-11-19 00:19
Good luck peacemaker to his spell in NRG as general manager and coach, I'm very curious about the changes and decisions he will do, hope he will make team full of success and best wishes to ptr. I think he is a bit underrated as a player, I'm sure he will find place where he belongs.

NRGs problem is not a lack of tactics. Hell they had 3 igls with ptr legija and gob b on the roster. What they lack is firepower and ptr even though inconsistent wasnt all that bad as the main awp. I respect peacemaker and think he could bring sth to the team but what NRG really need is firepower and with 2 notoriously bad fragger like legija and gob b on the roster they better bring some high fragger in the team even though I cant think of any good awp player that would be free agent atm in NA
2016-11-18 21:44
+1 ptr can be a good awper and peacemaker should go to SK so FalleN can focus more on being a player
2016-11-18 22:18
Finally. Hopefully gob b get some good player so he can make a good team.

Let's not forget zews was Games Academy (fnx, HEN1, TACO, lucas1 and SHOOWTiME) coach. He replaced nak on LG as coach later on. Games Academy > Luminosity > SK > Immortals > Liquid. Next steps: cloud9 and OpTic.

Ptr being out of NRG is not confirmed as of yet. He said in a recent tweet... twitter.com/NRG_ptr/status/7996814052234.. that he won't be re-signing with NRG as of now, so it's a possibility that he might stay. NRG themselves have just posted a Twit-longer post stating that all of the CSGO lineup is still under contract right now and there are no plans as of yet to remove anyone from the lineup: twitlonger.com/show/n_1spaco8

Keev will be a nice addition .. and much love for peacemaker

IMO, peacemaker to C9 would have been better, as they are using their manager as a coach, and also NRG don't have too much potential, as C9 has a lot of firepower which can be used better under peacemaker's coaching
