NRG add RIKO; daps becomes the team's coach
Damian "daps" Steele announced that he would be stepping down from an active playing position, switching to the coaching role. To fill in for the Canadian, NRG will trial Dylan "RIKO" Sabin-Arnce.
In his short announcement on Twitter, Damian "daps" Steele stated that he is "excited for this to finally happen", hinting that the move away from playing is something that the Canadian has been thinking about for a while.
daps first came to prominence while playing alongside Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and Jacob "FugLy" Medina in Denial, with a 2-0 win over Cloud9 at the ESEA Season 17 LAN Finals being the team's break-out performance. After that, the in-game leader played in a multitude of different teams such as Liquid, Conquest, OpTic and finally NRG.
The Canadian's fragging output hasn't too impressive for a while now, which probably lead to his departure from the active roster. Replacing him is Dylan "RIKO" Sabin-Arnce who represented both Denial and Swole Patrol in recent times, and is added to the team on a trial basis.
NRG now have the following roster:
