Ryu to coach Renegades on trial

Professeur
June 23rd, 2018 14:04

Steve "Ryu" Rattacasa, formerly of Selfless and CLG, will be trying out as the coach of Renegades.

The 32-year-old, who acted as the coach of Selfless in 2016-2017 before a moving to CLG, revealed that he will be standing behind Renegades at their two upcoming events: ESL One Cologne and the Asia Minor.

Ryu will be supporting Renegades in Cologne and London

Announcing the news via a TwitLonger, Ryu also revealed that he was working as an analyst for the team for several months, and with the departure of the team's former coach, Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović, he was given an opportunity to try out as the head coach.

"After Kassad's departure, the management team told me they’d be talking to the players internally and would be interested in trying me out for the head coach position. That trial began this week, as I was able to sit in on a few scrims with the squad.

"Tomorrow morning I will be flying out to the Renegades team house for a few days of practice before attending ESL Cologne, and then the Asia Minor with the team.

"No certainty if this will be a long term/permanent thing, but I’m grateful for the opportunity, eager to get to work, and hope to make the Renegades faithful proud. "

The American will be joining Renegades in their team house before they depart for ESL One Cologne together. Following that event, the Australian side will be going to London to attend the Asia Minor.

Renegades are now:

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

United States Steve "Ryu" Rattacasa (trial) (coach)

I sorta expected Dayv1d tbh
2018-06-23 14:25
Dayv1d is a very nice boy got to play in his servers a few times when he did this weird casting thing. Got to play a few pros like Zellsis when they were rising up.

Wasn't he the ORDER coach who wouldn't even go to LAN with them? ...
2018-06-23 17:35
He went to LAN with them several times, but yes he missed quite a few as well. He had reasons for most, whether they were true or not i do not know.
2018-06-25 03:22

Not like they could have gotten much worse at the time... then they got poached
2018-06-24 00:17
Much worse? They were top 16 for 2 years LMAO They also beat Liquid multiple times

I meant the 2nd time he joined obviously 2015 clg was top 3 NA Edit: that's why I said "and then they got poached" to add context to which time period i was talking about.
2018-06-24 21:56
Even more of a reason to like him.

Fair fair, anyways it’s a trial period, I hope it works out well, Cologne is their warmup but they need to win this next minor, Tyloo are looking good but I guess second place as long as they qualify for Major qualifier.
2018-06-24 03:13
Immi visa issues stopping him from living in the US, Why would RNG want that?
