NRG bench MarkE, LILMAN steps in

NRG have benched Edgar "MarkE" Jimenez and brought in Rush's Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne, who will step into the team for at least the remainder of ECS Season 3 and ESL Pro League Season 5.

Edgar "MarKE" Jimenez had been part of NRG's active roster since December last year, when the squad underwent an overhaul following the departure of Fatih "gob b" Dayik, Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić, and Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz, who went on to create BIG.

In that time, NRG were unable to qualify for several events, including DreamHack Masters Las Vegas, IEM Katowice, and DreamHack Open stops in Austin and Tours.


LILMAN will try out for NRG in ECS and ESL Pro League 

According to a statement from Damian "daps" Steele, his team's attendance at Copenhagen Games last weekend was the final straw, as they finished 5th-8th following a loss to Tricked in the quarter-finals.

Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne, formerly of Rush, has been brought in instead of MarKE for a trial period, which will last until the end of NRG's duties in ECS Season 3 and ESL Pro League Season 5.

"We gave MarKE a shot at the start of the year to see how he could develop as a player on his first Pro League team. While his individual aim is very good, his inexperience in other areas of his game was too great to continue on." daps told HLTV.org.

"We knew our comms were fairly poor online, but our failure at Copenhagen Games was even more of a reality check. A lot of our players relied too heavily on Professor_Chaos communicating for them online and we realized we needed a player with experience and good team attributes to begin improving more. LILMAN has a good competitive mindset and will be our 5th moving on and fill that entry role alongside Brehze."

NRG's roster now is:

Canada Damian "daps" Steele
United States Jacob "FugLy" Medina
United States Peter "ptr" Gurney
United States Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte
Canada Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne (trial)

United States Andrew "Professor_Chaos" Heintz (coach)
Mexico Edgar "MarKE" Jimenez (backup)

Well there goes the mexican hope
2017-04-18 21:07
daps is clearly worse than MarkE, yet MarkE is benched. What a fucking waste of talent.
2017-04-18 21:07
You are incredibly stupid if you think that marke is even anywheres near the level of daps.
2017-04-18 21:20
he's probably just a salty mexican
2017-04-18 21:26
daps got cut from his own team because his individual level was poor. MarkE has better aim than daps as many people above LEM do... but he is the IGL...
2017-04-18 21:28
so u know two things: aim and IGL? pls man, and daps' aim isnt too bad. its too bad to lead an NA team into the top5 worldwide, but its certainly good enuff to do damage and play on a good NA pro league team. lilman however, that team is dead now xD
2017-04-18 21:46
I have no problem with you having a differing opinion than I do however I must say... You are not a Pasha London School graduate because it is unclear what you are trying to express after the first sentence.
2017-04-19 07:30
His Londonese was fine and perfectly understandable tbh
2017-04-19 07:50
1) fuck off 2) i said daps definitely has good enough aim to lead a decent NA team and not drag them down. this is NRG, not c9 or optic or liquid where u really expect that they can make it deep into the top10 worldwide. NRG doesnt have the same expectations, so daps is good enough. with lilman however u got a guy thats even worse than daps and not even IGL, so the team is pretty much dead.
2017-04-19 15:02
wow so rude my friend but thanks for typing coherently this time.
2017-04-19 18:56
It really sums to my opinion, if you don't like it, I can understand.

MarkE is several times the individual player that daps is
2017-04-19 13:52
daps is a IGL, there's not much available better than him in NA although he is a mediocre IGL. marke is a under performing rifler, they picked him up for his potential but he hasn't shown shit. marke can easily end up as the prime example of why RANK S/FPL pubstars doesn't mean shit because he performs like a scrub and hasn't shown shit when it matters.
2017-04-19 14:41
Despite all your trash talking, I agree in some points, but my opinion still intact, I think markE is a good player and NRG didn't knew how to use that talent, that happens alot in low tier orgs.
2017-04-19 14:43

2017-04-19 00:46
Such as who? NA has practically no IGL's on even close to the level of daps. You're left forcing a player in your team onto the role and fucking up the entire team in the process. Look at Liquid once Hiko took over full-time IGL-ing or OpTic after Stan left.

I mean if you end up 5-8th in an event with tier4 EU teams you might as well jump ship and disband. Fuck is wrong with these NA orgs not puttin any pressure on the players. Must be fun to pay them salaries each month without a single result for years..
