ImAPet joins OpTic as coach
OpTic Gaming have confirmed on their website that they have installed Chet "ImAPet" Singh as their head coach.
The North American tactician joins OpTic after parting ways with CLG last month, putting an end to a ten-month spell with the organisation, first as an analyst and then as coach.
At the time, ImAPet expressed his wish to pursue new opportunities and to produce "the best North American team", one who could "compete internationally and consistently in Majors."
He will be charged with task of revitalising a team who have struggled for form since losing former ingame leader Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz to Liquid, in February. After trialing Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu, OpTic hired James "hazed" Cobb to coach the team, but the 28-year-old has since been moved to the active roster following Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski's departure.
The announcement comes just hours after OpTic were eliminated from ESL One Cologne by SK Gaming. The North American team were one of the big surprises of the tournament as they beat North, Space Soldiers and FaZe and also took a map off of SK, the No.1 team in the world at the moment.
OpTic currently have:
