Aleksandar 'kassad' Trifunović has put an end to almost a year and a half behind the Renegades players.

Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović, the former player and mousesports coach who ended up with Renegades in January of 2017 has parted ways with the North American organization. The decision was taken when the team qualified for the Pro League Finals earlier this month, but wasn't revealed until now.

kassad will reveal details about his future soon

Under kassad, Renegades won two Asia Minors, as well as the SL i-League Invitational played in Shanghai last year, on top of several playoff runs which include the 5-6th place at IEM Sydney earlier this month. With Renegades out of the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals, kassad's duties with the team are over.

After kassad's departure, Renegades looks as follows:

Australia Aaron "AZR" Ward
Australia Karlo "USTILO" Pivac
Australia Justin "jks" Savage
United States Noah "Nifty" Francis
Norway Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad

i'd say -rush, he is good but cant keep up his good level over a longer period ....but on the other hand, its literally exactely the same for jks.
2018-05-17 23:32
-fns clearly. nifty is renegades igl.

But then you have 2 awpers or 1 shit player. I’d do -Ska -fns +nifty +jks it would help so fucking much and c9 would be on top imo

Nifty can flex

He’s one of the best NA though. Him Shazam ska and jdm are really all NA has

2018-05-17 22:59
Renegades need to get liazz to replace BOTSTILO They could also sign BnTeT over AZR/jkaem if they can afford to give up AU roster Or at least Rickeh (who can also play great with rifles, not only with awp)
2018-05-17 23:04
#54
Australia DubL 
they had internal issues with rickeh so they wont bring him back. they should get bntet instead of jkaem and liazz to replace ustilo. im not sure azr will leave considering him and jks have been together for a very long time now.
2018-05-17 23:15
jkaem is good -azr +bntet is better
2018-05-18 07:14
They wouldn't drop azr tho, that's why I mentioned him and jks being together for so long.
2018-05-19 02:24
They ran a line up with Rickeh before and it didn't work out, doubt he'll be up for it again.

If BnTeT replaced Ustilo and Liazz replaced Jkaem they would have 3 Australians (as they do now) and an Asian who already is eligible to play in the Asia minor
2018-05-17 23:33
jkaem best player in the team atm idk why you want 2 replace him
2018-05-17 23:52

Jks is by far the best, It's not even a debate

 | 
Australia MattJKS 
I think it'd be good but is there any proof BnTeT speaks English? I hope I don't embarrass myself. Also even if they just replaces Jkaem with BnTeT or Liazz keeping the core AU roster would be amazing for an Australian fan like myself.

I can't really remember Jkaeam performing that well. I've seen him being on the bottom 2 consistently.

He's not the best player on the team. Jks has been their best player.

Yeah I would've too, once they beat Faze in a BO3 on LAN they're basically the best in the world so they don't need a coach anymore.

Can't really help a team that has to keep 3 AUS shitters for the Aisa minor. Meanwhile the only way they can win is if nifty or Jkeam hard carry.
2018-05-17 23:11
Nifty only hard carried that one map at IEM Sydney, JKS has been stepping up recently.

false. look at the case of hr. they have 3 minors to choose from: cis, eu and asia. they choose cis as its where most of them live not because rules state they have to. rng only need 1 player from that region to play in that minor. they choose asia cause its the easiest.
2018-05-17 23:37
Aussies counts for Asian Minor here

yeah but they dont need 3 is what im saying
